Roots & Wings Tray - Canvas Corp Brands

As you know October is the Breast Cancer Awareness month. For me this is a personal matter since my cousin died from Breast Cancer only 37-year-old. I always think of her as one of my Best Friends and I will never forget what she told me one of the last times I visited her. She told me that she had faith in her little girls growing up to be strong, independent women. She told me that even though she wouldn´t be there for them, she was certain of that she had given them the roots and a solid ground to stand on. That she had given them the self confidence that they needed to take the step and lift against the things they dream of. This tray is a tribute to her. The trey also will be submitted for Mixed Media Place Creative Gym Challenge this month.

The 7 Gypsies quote is just perfect for this tray.

The Cherry blossoms from Creative Embellishments where first painted with white High Impact paint, then with Glimmer Mist and then Glimmer Glam to add the final sparkle.

The Dragonfly was originally in a brass finish. To give it more interest it was painted with Glimmer Glaze on the wings and Glimmer Glam on the body.

Another 7 Gypsies quote. that goes well with the print from Paper Wings Productions.

To smart for Mum - IndigoBlu

Today I want to show you a project made with the new stencils "Texture" & "Roman Numerals" and two soon to be released stamps from IndigoBlu.

Our 11 year-old son is incredible smart. Ok, I am his mother so of course I think so - but it´s really a fact that he´s doning very well in school. Everything that comes to mathematics and constructions is just what he loves. Often when we come home from work we find him in front of the TV watching programs on National Geographic Channel. And when it comes to homeworks and maths - well I´m totally lost - I can´t help him at all.

When the new stamp "Periodic table of Elements" arrived to my studio I decided to use it for a layout about the above.

I have used a white cardstock as my base. On it I stamped with the new stamp called "Rain Droplets" using green stamping ink. After that I added Acrylic paint (Townhouse Teal) trough a stencil (Texture stencil) using my finger tip. When the paint was dry I stamped with the "Periodic Table of Element" stamps before adding the photo in place.

The numbers added by stamping trough the "Roman Numerals" stencil.

To finish of my layout I added some embellishments and paint splatters using water diluted Acrylic paint ("Park Lane"). 

Thank you for stepping by today. Please visit the IndigoBlu blog for more details.

"Fall Dream" - En liten Butik

 This Art Journal Page crated with inspiration from the stunning colors that the nature is shifting towards right now. The page also was created with current Scrapki-wyzwaniowo challenge in mind. Products from the local store En Liten Butik and the page is up in their blog as well.

I have used paints and Tattered Angel Glimmer Mists to cover the background. I have also used made a transfer using Art Basics Matte Gel. I printed the picture and cut it out neatly. Then glued it to the surface with Matte Gel printed side down. Then when completely dry I sprayed on water and started to rub off the paper. It´s just to continue until you are have the image as clear as you want it to be.

I love these word & sentiment stamps from Indigo Blu! They are really versatile!!

And as an extra treat there is a process video this time:

This is the challenge board from Scrapki-Wyzwaniowo.

Hope you enjoyed watching!

Haunt it ATC´s - Canvas Corp Brands

Let´s get a little bit spooky today as I´m showing you these ATC cards made with the Haunt it Collection from Canvas Corp Brands.

I stared with cutting out my card bases from the Orange & Black Stitched Diamonds on Kraft paper. So prepare the surface for wet mediums I painted them with a small amount of white gesso. Then to get a got mix of colors I placed my 3 cards in my mist box (just an old cardboard box) and sprayed on the Glimmer Mists randomly over the cards. When dry I added stamping and some paint splatters.

On this first card I cut out the small diamond shapes from the same paper as I used for the base and glued them on the card. Then I painted the shapes with Glimmer Mist in the color Marmalade. One of the shapes also got a dust of gold glitter. The bat was cut out from Haunt it on Kraft and painted with Glimmer Glaze to get a leather look. The text comes from Haunt it Tags on Kraft.

The Drive me Batty card has text and picture cut out from Tags on Kraft as well. To highlight the bat cape I painted it with Glimmer Mist in the color Precious Metal. This turned out to be my favorite card.

This card was the easiest. I cut out the pumpkins and text from the Tag paper and glued them overlapping on the card. Then I gave the pumpkins a bit of a glow with Glimmer Mist Marmalade and It´s Orange. All of the cards where embellished with treads and sparkling stones.
