peaceful moments

hello everyone! today i am here to share with you my very first posting as part of the Ken Oliver Media Team (http://www NULL.kensworldinprogress

today marks a special day in my life and i chose to honour the new beginnings with a piece of art created for my heart.

i started off using one of Ken’s Mixed Media Photo Mats; and let me tell you i sure put it to the test!!!

so i started of by laying a Jessica Sporn (http://jessicasporn NULL.blogspot stencil and sprinkling my color burst through and i got this:

then i decided maybe i should outline all the bits in black pen but i really wasn’t happy with that look either….so what to do .. i added my little yogie, another  Stencil Girl Products stencil (http://www NULL.stencilgirlproducts NULL.htm) by Jessica Sporn created exclusively for Stencil Girl to the mat board and yup i liked her… what to do….. i liked it but it really wasn’t colourful enough for me so i added a ‘few’ more colours!

now that is more like it!!

i had so much fun adding and taking away that i naturally got lost in the whole process but basically i would add a colour or two, spritz it and heat set it and continue. i also added some spritz of water to give it the whole speckled effect.

now i wasn’t sure what i was going to do next and really wanted to keep some of that colour on the background so i added some clear texture paste through the same stencil and set it aside to dry.

then it was just a matter of choosing  which photo i wanted and a quote…. and here is my final piece

plain to bursting suitcase

hello eveyone!!

today i am here to show you a suitcase i created using Eileen Hull’s suitcase die! (http://www NULL.sizzix

i created the outside by stamping, embossing with the newest embossing powder to hit and stay on my desk, the burnt cooper leaves (http://www NULL.emeraldcreek NULL.htm) from Emerald Creek  and inking with my distress ink. i also added a real set of leather straps and a set of Tim Holtz buckles (http://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.aspx?id=112219). as you will see for the handle i used some ring fasteners (http://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.aspx?id=112207) to attach a piece i had in my jewellery drawer!!
