Although these companies have provided me with some product to create this project the opinions I share are solely my own.

so i stared out playing once again with watercolour paper but this time i started with a sheet that i had used for a clean up from another project.

i cut a circle to cover the centre and then i stared adding Color burst in the various colours.

can you see where i used bits of the torn card in the corners.. they were the inspiration for the colours to go where.

so it was just a matter of adding colour, spraying with water and heating until i was happy with the colour.

then it was time to add some stamps. today i am using The Ripple Effect stamp set from Visible images and i used all three in the set.  firstly i stamped in the back ground with water. you can see the ghosting of the stamped image below

and then i stamped with some archival inks both top and bottom

as you can see i also added some chit chat stickers and i used my stabilo pencil to shadow my large circle

and here you have my final piece.

i love how the silhouette of the white circle  contrasts with the colour on the outside……this is a piece i will display for a while in my studio to remind me to ….

be original, be authentic, be fearless and be me bravely.

until next time my friends,

diana

Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #42 – silhouettes

hello everyone!

today i am kicking off the month sharing with you the latest challenge from Mixed Media Monthly (https://l NULL.facebook NULL.com/l NULL.php?u=https%3A%2F%2Fmixedmediamc NULL.blogspot NULL.com%2F2017%2F11%2Fmixed-media-monthly-challenge-42 NULL.html&h=ATNPs36fzaLmoibEicM5WrJIz-vsVJCfaVfemoixeDgUluBZHgeh1PtTrJzn3IkTO4dCXyeT91-LlR4a0bjvK2hf5w_BFvtwQQ62OuC7hoSZugbfuzrClfc2mCKY2Vm88J8yGVW1UHAiBaEtN4qg4Fyis6Xk5_SzVNbQ9iCMODFwsXbUYWh3HeBtnmVmAN4Hc2eneuu_BzLWGOS-uIN3ImgufWrLLH2SiO-j5050CK9rE1n_pEkciTtDLbjO-Dq5vrN9JnNaFOuZ_ZRqsWGVXw__8sVFNSA) and this one is all about Silhouettes!!

No automatic alt text available.and we are collaborating with Visible Images stamps.  they are a company based in the UK and their stamp and stencil designs are unique, original and different! Arty images, inspiring quotes, and brilliant backgrounds for cards, journal pages and mixed media pieces!

Visible Image

and i was so lucky to receive from them the No Space for Dreams (https://visibleimage NULL.co NULL.uk/product/no-space-for-dreams/) set. i fell in love with the stamp ‘dreams’ and i wanted it as a constant reminder so decided i need to make something a little unique with it other than an art journal page.

Although these companies have provided me with some product to create this project the opinions I share are solely my own.

i made this quick and inspiring coaster simply by stamping the silhoutte using black distress paint onto a sheet of watercolour paper. once the paint was dry i used some colour burst and added a bit of colour. i love how the randomness turned out perfectly!

i then stamped the quote using embossing ink and sprinkled some antiquities weathered wood powder and heat set. i then let the whole thing sit for a day prior to glueing it down to a coaster and then covering it with Ice Resin.

and that is that! hope you have enjoyed my project and that you take the time to make one of your own and join in with us this month at Mixed Media Monthly.  be sure to include the  graphic in your blog post in order for it qualify for your chance to win this months prize sponsored by Visible Image!

until next time my friends

Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #41- mid month colour

hello everyone!

i am back again to share with you another project i created for this months’ Mixed Media Monthly Challenge (https://mixedmediamc NULL.blogspot NULL.ca/2017/10/mixed-media-monthly-challenge-41-color NULL.html)

No automatic alt text available.

Once again our October Sponsor is Rubber Dance Stamps (http://www NULL.rubberdance NULL.com/) from Norway!

(https://1 NULL.bp NULL.blogspot NULL.com/-KQtiNQAsf0Y/WdA-SHcSW0I/AAAAAAAAMV4/DJ6JfjTLnVI5vGeRIyU0V3q0j3heTDcggCLcBGAs/s1600/2016-Rubber-Dance-logo-300x173 NULL.jpg)
Our lucky random winner will win a $30 gift certificate to the Rubber Dance Online Store!!!

for my project i chose to do another 6×6 tile using the same colour theme as last months project but with a splash of orange (egyptian gold actually)

so here is what i did. i stared out using a stencil and some light&fluffy modelling paste. i did the 6×6, leaving the centre of my square out

once that layer was dry i then lined the stencil up after placing a piece of chipboard in the centre of my square and then added some modelling paste to  my chipboard.

once everything was dry i started adding some sprays.

for the centre piece i added a splash of white spray and let it leak through the crevices to lighten up the centre of my piece

now here are my two pieces

and as you can see they one up perfectly and i love the two different colours

next it was time to work on my centrepiece… now for this piece remember we are doing  a product partnership with Rubber Dance Stamps an i am using the funny fungi.  i stamp it onto red cardstock with black archival ink and then quickly heat embossed it with clear powder.  i then filled all the dots with glossy accents and went back to the white and using a pin i picked at it in order to try to give it some texture

then it was time for the finishing touches…. the spray of gold and for the centre of my flower i chose to put in a tiger eye gemstone

here you have it my finished piece

thanks for stopping. don’t forget to upload your creation HERE (https://mixedmediamc NULL.blogspot NULL.ca/2017/10/mixed-media-monthly-challenge-41-color NULL.html) for your chance to win this months prize, a $30 gift certificate to the Rubber Dance online store!!!

mixed media challenge #41 – colour

hello everyone!!

can you believe yet another month has gone by and we are presenting you with yet a new challenge at Mixed Media Monthly Challenge … this one is all about colour

No automatic alt text available.

as well, we have partnered up with Rubber  Dance Stamps.

Original original new banner  Rubber Dance offers a unique line of Red Rubber Stamps, UN-mounted, without cling cushion!. they are lovingly made in Norway and they are shipped world wide.

now for my project i was sent the quirky Funny Fungi!!! (http://www NULL.rubberdance NULL.com/funny-fungi)

here is what i created and how i created it!

i started out using some paint on a 8″ round Gel Press reusable gel printing plate. i just dabbed paints here and there

and using my brayer, spread the paint until i had  covered the circle and then laid my sheet of paper over, pressed and pulled. i also mixed some paints to the side on my craft sheet, brayered and pull…and just kept adding until i was satisfied.

i then added in some stencils and i am sorry to say but by this point i was so lost in the process i forgot to take pictures but here is where i was after the first couple of stencils on a second sheet i created at the same time

so once i had created my back ground circle it was time to focus on my stamp! i dug out some distress markers and just coloured

once i was finished coloured i had a bright idea so out came some more makers, my ruler and archival ink

i cut the little mushroom out from the center of the stamp and then stamped and coloured round the whole circle!

as i was creating my piece i couldn’t help but think how we are all so very different in this world; whether we are people, flowers, trees or mushrooms… we are all our own kind of beauty so that is where my quote came from that i printed out and added to my page

that is it for me for today! do drop on over to the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge (https://mixedmediamc NULL.blogspot NULL.com/) page to see what my fellow teamies have come up with and play along!

until next time

hello everyone

this month we had the pleasure of partnering up with Indigo Blu

IndigoBlu is a manufacturer of – High Quality “Quintessentially English” Rubber Stamps, paints, stencils, etc…

i had received  the Floral Fantasy (http://www NULL.indigoblu NULL.com/rubber-stamps-c3/a5-rubber-stamps-c5/floral-fantasy-a5-red-rubber-stamp-by-kay-halliwell-sutton-p1750)and the Country House (http://www NULL.indigoblu NULL.com/rubber-stamps-c3/a6-rubber-stamps-c7/country-house-a6-red-rubber-stamp-by-kay-halliwell-sutton-p1968)set and for my first challenge i had used Floral Fantasy….. for my second i wanted to use both!

now when looking at the County House stamp i couldn’t not see it as a door to a fairy home!  so i started my art journal page by stamping and layering my flowers on one corner, the fairy door on the bottom and then taping off a tree i started making a fairy home

i mixed a bit of paint with texture paste and applied through the stencil

and then i coloured my tree using some watercolour pencils

added a few more flowers and butterflies to the page

a little fairy sitting on a tree stump chatting with the butterfliesand here you have it, my finished page!
