Stamps and Stencils January 2016 challenge-oh so Blue

The brief was to create a mostly blue Mixed Media project using some stamping/or/and stenciling.

I like how this card turned out.

I have used the Prima rose stencil, with Faber-Kastell Whipped Spackle. I sprayed with Tim Holtz Distress spray stains.
The tag was painted with heavy white gesso. I then mixed Prima's 3Dmatte Gel with Prima mica powder( Frozen Lake) and scraped it over the tag.
The stamp is from Kaisercraft and the flowers Green Tara, and Dusty attic(?).
The arrow is Dusty Attic chipboard and it has been painted with white gesso.

Not sure if I have overdone the white but there is still a lot of blue!
good luck all:)

More Than Words mini Challenge

the mini challenge for january 2016 was to create with a card, tag or ATC with the word "Be"
I was a bit stumped at first but came up with 2 cards, a traditional one

The above card was made from some Prima Paper that had come with a magazine quite a while ago and which I had stashed away. The Be Glad motif was from Kaisercraft Collectables, again from some years ago.
I did two cards because I was in two minds about which way to go!!

 I used Prima Rose stencil and Faber-Kastell Whipped Spackle
When dry I sprayed with Tim Holtz Distress Spray stains.
The tag I had painted with heavy  white gesso.
Then I colored some Prima 3D matte gel with prima mica powder and scraped it on the tag'
The stamp is Kaisercraft, and the ink Ranger Archival "Manganese Blue"
quite happy with how they turned out

oh so blue

Dusty Attic Moodboard January 2016 Challenge

this mood board is just gorgeous!

I tried to recreate those beautiful blues and pinks !
I thought the dusty Attic chipboard banners and lights bring to mind party time!!

I practiced with the skills I learned from Finnabair on her recent tour, and used mostly Finnabair products. The flowers were from my local scrap booking store "Made with Memories" . The lovely Judy organised the Finnibair class and it was well worth attending!! The gorgeous Sharon helped with using Crackle paste too.
The base pages were from Kaisercraft.
There is still lots of room for improvement but I think it turned out okay!!

More Than Words January challenge 2016

This challenge required the use of a selfie, or a photo of myself and inspiration from the word Personality.

I like to think my personality is a happy and positive one and this is portrayed in the photo and with the wordings on the paper. The papers are from Bo Bunny's Boardwalk Collection.

I dusted the starfish with Bellbird Paperarts Diamond Glitter, and added teresa collins " every day moments " bling as I also love anything that sparkles!!

this is the More Than Words Mood Board

This is what I created

I'm wearing a wetsuit floating in the ocean off Carnac Island.(W.A.) - I don't like selfies of myself because they showcase my double chin so I opted for a photo of myself. This photo was taken a while ago before I gave up trying to hide the white hair!!!The little girl in the right hand corner playing on the beach is a good representation of the happy little girl in me too!!

good luck everybody!

It all seemed to come together really well.

Dusty Attic little hearts and film track.

Little hearts painted with Tim Holtz distress ink "Spun sugar", and the film track with Dusty Atic Dusty Pink paint.

Underneath it all I used a crafters workshop Stencil and Faber Kastell Whipped Spackle.

Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst spray, Sassy Sapphire and Hi Maintainence Magenta.
also Flat Fabio Popping Pink

Washi Tape


off to my next project! :)
