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

A Rose is a Rose

hello everyone!!

today I have created a project that brought back some fond childhood memories.  I remember being a little girl and there was a perfume I believe in the Avon book that my mom bought called ‘A Rose is a Rose’…… that is the inspiration for today’s page created for The Crafter’s Workshop in collaboration with Altered Pages.

have you enjoyed browsing The Crafter’s  Workshop blog this month and seeing what my fellow teamies have created!! i know i sure have. so much inspiration right!

so for this second project of the month from me i decided i wanted to use 1651 – flowers, letters,numbers. (https://alteredpages NULL.com/products/1651-flowers-letters-numbers-prikntable) . there was just something about that rose i knew i needed to use it. here is what i did.

i stared out my edging my page using a stencil and some modelling paste.

once it was dry i chose to use some oxides onto my edges of my page,

wet them down and then allowed them to dry

while my page was drying i cut out and glued my pieces to some chipboard and then i inked all those edges with oxide ink

i then wanted to add some flowers in my background so using the same oxide colours i inked some flowers with two different colours

i then sprayed the page again with water and dried it

i then inked the edges of all my altered page bits using the oxide inks

after layering and gluing my bits down, i then stamped some script onto my page

as you can see i also added some glitter and seed beads using gel medium. you see it goes on white but it does dry clear!

but it was still missing something…so out came my final stencil

and here you have my finished page

 

Supplies used:

TCW stencils:  TCW754 – distressed details (http://store NULL.thecraftersworkshop NULL.com/product/tcw754-distressed-details/); TCW727 –  flower dance; (http://store NULL.thecraftersworkshop NULL.com/product/tcw727-flower-dance/)  TCW261 – stencil art is (http://store NULL.thecraftersworkshop NULL.com/product/stencil-art-is/)

Eileen Hull – cookie box but not cookies!

hello everyone!

this is a really quick post today just to share with you another possibility for a really quick Halloween project to hold some treats

this time i used Eileen’s Cookie Box (https://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/659874/sizzix-scoreboards-xl-die-box-cookie) die and the same as last weeks post i cut my pieces first out of mat board and then twice more out of halloween paper for the inside and outside of my project bits. I also used another bat from my candy canister for a handle and covered the inside lip of the box with tissue paper

how quick and easy is this to make really!

so here you have it.. my three pieces for the Eileen Hull design team this month celebrating a holiday!…. this time of year it had to be Halloween (because remember in my first post i said it was all about the candy!)

until next time my friends,

today I am here to show you a quick and fun way to share treats with others.. whether it is for those trick or treaters that come to your door or to sit as a surprise on someones desk at work…

so I started out gathering all the supplies I figured I might need and die cut my basket four times.. twice from mat board and twice from paper

I then painted the edges of my matboard pieces with black paint and applied glue and the precut paper

here are the inside/outside pieces all papered!

then it was jut a matter of assembling. be sure to use a strong adhesive in case your basket gets overstuffed with goodies!

here is a quick look inside

and adding a few finishes touches .. recognize the bat!  i had die cut it from last weeks project 

i trimmed with ribbon around the outside of my basket along with ribbon on the handles and then it was time to add some treats!!

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!!!
