color burst time!!

hello everyone!!

literally, color burst and time together and what do you get!!

an altered clock for my new space!! I had so much fun creating this quick and simple project.

I started by sprinkling some chosen color burst on the face of the clock


added a bit (or a lot of water)

WELCOME color burst

hello everyone!!

today I am here to show you a quick and simple banner created using the Ken Oliver watermedia banner kit (http://www NULL.scrapbook NULL.html?w=ken+oliver).

I started by covering the banners with DecoArt (http://decoart gesso. I originally had the idea if I sprinkled color burst (http://www NULL.scrapbook NULL.html?w=ken+oliver)onto the gesso and then when I applied the DecoArt (http://decoart modeling paste through my TCW stencil my letters that the  paste would suck it up through and tada color bursted letters but it didn’t work as I wanted..  the universe decided that I needed them to just stay white!! I am okay with that

so instead I added my pops of colour using the butterfly daisy stamp and the butterfly daisy mandala stamp (https://www painting them using color burst and my paint brush. to give the images a crisper look I stamped them using the click-it ink pad (http://www NULL.scrapbook NULL.html?w=ken+oliver)and them heat embossed them using Emerald Creeks clear embossing powder.

I then cut them out using the matching die.. so quick and easy to do!

and then it is just a matter of decorating my banner

Heart and Soul flower

hello everyone!!

i am so excited today to be showing you one of the many projects i have on the go using Eileen’s newest releases, the Heart and Soul die and the Pansy die along with the re-released teacup die!!!

Paper Flower Party a Sizzix Collection from Eileen Hullso to get started creating these i cut my teacups out of mat board and then sprayed them with gold and silver distress spray and then a couple spritzes of water to blend..

sprayed Eileen Hull teacups

once that was dry  i applied ground expresso distress ink the edges. this is the only distress ink i used in this project (I know crazy for me right!!) but look at the difference it makes!

inking EH teacups

to the ‘tea bags’ i drew on my symbols using dylusions black ink pen and once that was dry i spritzed with tea dye and antique linen  and then set them aside

then i added a bit  of distress crazing to them..

now it was back to the tea cups…. i switched them around and using Dylusions paint i painted the inside and the backs of the tea cups

dylusions black paint

i then added my chitchat words to my teacups and covered them all using crazing.

and for my saucers, well i had a different idea for them….so i added a hitch fastener to the bottoms of them. (more on that later!)


now it was time to get to my flowers!!

the Heart and Soul  and the Pansy flower dies!! to start i dug out some older scrapbook paper that i had in my stash and just started cutting until i had a large collection of flowers. then taking Amy’s lead i used a tool and the sizzix scrapbook buddy and put some dimension to my flowers….. then i put them in my hand and scrunched them prior to layering them together

now i loved this pansy flower but it  just wasn’t exactly what i wanted so i took them this one and the rest of my flowers apart and added vintage  media to them all

vintage medium flowers

i added water and distress glaze and some varnish and well just played until they were as i wanted them. i then took my twist tool and some wire, added a bead to it, twisted and made a stem

and here you have it!!! my four completed ‘teacups’ with a reminder daily when i walk by that in life i need to remember to:

play the momentsplay the moments

pause the memories

pause the memoriesstop the pain
stop the pain

replay the happiness

replay the happiness

i hope you have enjoyed this picture heavy posting and that you have been encouraged to create and to stop and appreciate little things in life…..they are after all really the big moments we truly cherish right!!


color burst project

hello everyone!!

today i am here to share with you my final piece in my yoga series. this one features me!

so i decided this time that i wanted my background to be a more subtle colour with the focus being on the actual chakras. so let’s get started with the show and tell!

so i started with a  few of the ‘warm’ color burst colours onto my canvas color burst

I then made my picture I wanted to use for this piece and placed the chakras in spot. I traced the spots onto my canvas and using color burst and a paint brush painted them in place

chakras beginning

to seal these so I could put my figure and not in I used some liquid glass (http://decoart to protect them

but then I had another idea….why not make the whole background my chakra colours and so the adding of layers began!!

change of plans

i love layering my color burst and heat blasting it with my gun!!

color burst richnessnow it was time to paint on my figure using some black gesso (http://decoart

painting in me

now here is my piece set aside waiting to dry

chakra and mei then inked the edges of my piece using the black gesso and once again set it aside to dry..

the final step was to add that layer of Ice Resin to my piece. here it s finished

chakra yogi
