ATC Art Shrine & Crafty News

Hi Everyone!

I mentioned yesterday that I had some news to share…

I am so happy to be able to let you know that I am a design team member for 2017-2018 for ColourCraft and I am looking forward to creating lots of nice new projects for them in the coming year.. and of course you will get to see them all because they will all be featured here on my blog ๐Ÿ™‚

I also have an ATC Art Shrine to share with you… this is from a company called That’s Crafty and they can be bought from http://www.stampersgrove.co.uk

they arrive in kit form and you have to glue all the bits together to make the shrine, you get 3 in a packet.. I gave one a coat of Deco Art white gesso, then cracked open my new set of Tim Holtz mini Stencils and used 2 different ones along with Deco Art Modelling Paste

I also used 2 pots of Brush crystals to obtain the gorgeous colour on the shrine.. Turquoise and Light Brown…

I popped in an ATC that I made some time ago, just to see what it looked like up against the ATC Shrine

I’m loving how the blue pops through the brown in random places.. and I am looking forward to decorating the other two soon… not sure if I am entirely finished decorating this one yet, I might add something else to the front, but if I do I will be sure to post an updated picture

Let’s go somewhere

Hi Everyone!..

I have been playing with Distress Oxide inks on kraft cardstock tonight ๐Ÿ˜€

I made a wee tag

Lets go somewhere

I put so many layers of ink down my tag warped quite a bit, so I double layered it ontop of another one to give it a bit of stability..

lets go somewhere 1

I used Spiced Marmalade, Broken China, Iced Spruce, and Peeled Paint Distress Oxide Inks

lets go somewhere 2

I also used a lovely Petaloo Darjeeling Teal Dahlia flower, a Tim Holtz Small Talk Sticker, and my Uniball Signo White Pen..

lets go somewhere 3

I used a Prima Finnabair spotty stamp over top of the oxide inks and finished it off with some Maya Road Fibres …

As always, thank you for popping round

I mixed a spot of cobalt black paint in with the texture paste and swiped this over my stencil, i like this decoart media texture paste as it is quite rubbery when dry as opposed to a chalky finish.

Wake up and be Awesome

Hi everyone,

I have a mixed media board to share with you today, I went to a class yesterday and we made mixed media boards using DecoArt Media Paints, gesso, matte medium, stamps, etc and had a lot of fun, I also learned how to understand and use the colour wheel, which was great, as I’m not that great at the old mixed media thing ๐Ÿ™‚

Here is the board I made, I like how it turned out

wake-up-and-be-awesome-1

We stamped the girl image onto mulberry paper and painted her before fixing her down to the board with matte medium

Once everything was stuck down I added some highlights with a signo uniball white pen and a black pen to touch up the bits I had missed on the “wake up and be awesome”

img_7146

I had loads of fun down at Helen’s and if you ever get the chance you should pop in and visit ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for popping round
