Art Journal "Bird" - Mixed Media & Art Design Team

Hello Crafty Souls!

I´m here to share my inspiration piece for the current challenge at Mixed Media & Art - a Art Journal page. I also was inspiered by the monocromatic challenge at scrapki-wyzwaniowo this month.

The November 15 - December 14 Challenge board "Poetry"

I created my page using different mists from Tattered Angels. Layering them with a brush & water and drying in between. A used a script stamp & dark orange stamping in between the layers.

Stamped flowers & leaves from AB Studio painted with bright yellow and dark green mist.

I´m not that much into poetry - but I found this quote that sounds sort of like poetry to me ....

Love the bird rubon from 7gypsies Architextures.

Hope I could inspire you today!

Tag "You look great" - Woodouts Guest Designer

I´m really happy to show my first project as Woodouts Guest Designer today!

Woodouts is a new company that produces large MDF shapes that you can use as base for your Mixed Media projects. They are really good quality, sturdy and comes in a variety of shapes and sizes.

For this project I used one of the tags - the largest one.

This is how I used it to create the cool tag above:

I first painted the tag with black matte gesso. Then added modeling paste trough the beautiful stancil from AB Studio. 

To give the pattern a shimmery metallic look I painted over it with Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam. I also stamped & embossed a scripted pattern.

I crated more interest with splatters of Tattered Angels Mists.

As decorations I used stamped & painted image & a sweet sentiment.

The tag was really fun to work with. It was fun to do a project with a lot of wet mediums that not bent by getting wet or dried with a heater. 

I will give this tag to one of my dear friends who owns a clothes shop. I really can see the tag hanging on the wall in one of the dressing rooms, can´t you?

Layout "Sweet Together" - Cuts2luv Guest Designer

Today I´m here to show you my inspiration piece for the November Challenge at the Cuts2luv blog.  Boy did this colors get my creative mind going. They where not obvious together and that is one thing I like - a challenge! 

I decided to bring out papers from the Canvas Corp Collection "Compose Your Life" & "Bohemian Romance" designed by my dear friend Aga Baraniak. They play SO well with the metallic flair I picked out from Guest Design pack. 

Watercolors was one of the elements in the moodboard, and what better than using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists as watercolors? Since they are water based it works a treat. I picked up the bottle that had the same purple tone as the badge and started to play. 

The picture of my daughter & her older cousin is so sweet - I found the right badge for it!

Sparkling Christmas Cards - AB Studio Design Team

Happy Wednesday everyone! Today I share the first Christmas cards for this year. I made them using the "Dreamland" collection from AB Studio. 

When you first look at the collection you might not think it fits for Christmas, but if you look trough the papers you will find many colors and elements that work perfect for your Christmas projects.

For this first card I used a tag with twigs and cut out flowers & leaves in a beige, grey and white color scale. Together with the sparkly background that I created with stencil no 64 & glitter, it works perfect. Just a few red decorations pull the card together nicely.

For the second card I used the same technique using a stencil (no19) and glitter. I also added a tag and cut out elements. Love the bird!

I hope you could inspire you to use this collection for your next Christmas project!

Layout "31" - Canvas Corp Brands Creative Crew

I created this Halloween themed layout on  the Branches 12×12 Cardboard from Canvas Corp. The Cardboard is really a perfect base for your layouts. They are sturdy, and if you prime the surface with clear gesso you will can use wet mediums without getting the bend that a thin paper would get when drying.


Cut out elements from Haunt It “Halloween Masks” and “Haunt it” work perfect as decorations together with delicate flowers. And don´t you love the spider?
