until next time…
i am here to share a quick little post to wrap up this months Art with Heart Challenge, (http://www NULL.eileenhull NULL.com/2015/08/art-with-heart-challenge-august-choose-your-own-theme NULL.html) chose your own theme!
i love my thinlits but somehow seem to lose them!!! so to stop that i decided i needed a little case to put them in so i would know where they were at all ties and how many i should have…
now i do know that Sizzix has cases we can buy to put our thinlits in, and someday i may order myself some, but in the meantime…..
here is what i made!!
absolutely love what an ‘old die’, mat board, velcro and some paper can do!!
hope you have taken the time to create lately! share it with us… we love to see what you have created!
i have to admit…. when i first started working on my tag for Tim’s August challenge (http://timholtz NULL.com/12-tags-of-2015-august/)i did not like where it was going….i even left it on my desk and moved on to other projects…it just looking at me waiting to be finished…. it looked nothing like tim’s and i was already to trash it….but i waited
and i am so glad i did.
one of my favourite things about creating is the story that enfolds from the piece and it finally hit me what i was going to do with this one. i created it with the thoughts of me and my siblings growing up…we had some rough times, still do, but we had lots of love for one another.
loved ever single step in this process and as for techniques, do jump on over to Tim’s (http://timholtz NULL.com/12-tags-of-2015-august/) site to see what he did and his tag!
hello everyone!! happy week to you all!!!
i am back again this week to show you another project for the Art with Heart Challenge (http://www NULL.eileenhull NULL.com/2015/08/art-with-heart-challenge-august-choose-your-own-theme NULL.html), chose your own theme! the design team are using some old dies mixed with new things to create their own pieces of art!
today i have such a cool little treasure box to share with you all. i started by using Eileen Hulls toolbox die (http://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/product/660332/sizzix-scoreboards-xl-die-box-toolbox), one of my favourites and not necessarily old but one of the original ‘must have’ ones from here collection; which i cut out of black mat board.
then it was time to get out my DecoArt media (http://decoart NULL.com/mixedmedia/fluid-acrylics) line and play.
i started by layer a layer of crackle paint onto all pieces. once dry i started adding layers of paint starting with cobalt turquoise
followed by Phthalo Blue and finally to bring it all together, Transparent Red Iron Oxide how yummy is that!! i love how this turned out!!! the crackle, that paint and the black mat board peaking through… makes me very happy
now that is where i got lost in the whole process but here are some pictures of my finished project
the beauty on top of my treasure chest is the fanciful fairy (http://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/product/660095/sizzix-thinlits-die-fanciful-fairy) by Peter Hughes for Sizzix. i cut two opposites out and glued them together to sit on top of the box. i had though of trying to make her into a mermaid but she is so perfect just the way she is! such detail on her skirt and wings! i treasured my vacation and the marvellous project i created to hold my treasured seaglass
hope you are creating!
guess what time of month it is for me!!!!!
you’re right!!! it is the Art with Heart Challenge (http://www NULL.eileenhull NULL.com/2015/08/art-with-heart-challenge-august-choose-your-own-theme NULL.html) and this month is Old is New!!!
so for my project this month i chose to use a couple of Eileen’s older dies with one of her newer ones…..
i started my project by cutting out a flower for a base and five doilies
to create a flower…
then it was..hmm what shall i do with this flower
and then it came to me…. an ATB!!
so i cut one out of my white mat board, did a bit of stamping on the ATB as well i cut out, embossed, sanded and inked some Kraft Core
i then added started layering, creating and alas didn’t take a lot of pictures along the way.
here is my beautiful old/new ATB
i fully believe in
hoarding storing all my purchases and i know a lot of you do too so now is the time to dig some of them out and play, do a little mix and mingle with some newer items and let’s see what you come up with!!
