Imagine for Colour Blast

Hey Everyone

My turn on the Colour Blast Blog - make sure you check out the rest of the blog for lots of inspiration and check out the Colour Blast Kit Club - Check what kit would suit you 
It's so convenient everything you need all in one box 

I found this picture of John Lennon with the words to the song Imagine 
It's such a powerful song which we all need to read and do

I primed the canvas with the Colour Blast Heavy White Gesso

I used four different Colour Pastes - Apple of my Eye, Fire Engine, Sunshine and Tangerine Dream

 I used the four different Colour Pastes through the Memory Maze Pavement Stencil scraping each colour letting them overlap here and there
I liked the look of it as it was similar to the photo of John Lennon 

Here I'm rubbing some Dorland's Wax Medium over the paste - 1 it helps the paste from sticking to other thing and two it helps make the effect below (I'm sure there are lots more things I can use it for but we'll get to those)

Once I've heated where the wax is it bubbles all over and gives the pattern a really cool look


I sprayed a paper clay border with Colour Spray Carribean for a different pop of colour

I used Tim Holtz Idea-ology Small Talk sticker quote that I thought appropriate 

Here I used a Kaisercraft flower, a metal clock face from my stash and a Memory Maze Acrylic Deer Head

I used a Tim Holtz Transparency Globe an old Making Memories ribbon slide and a paper clay man from mum

Teach our Daughters for Memory Maze

Hey Everyone

This week on my blog my project for Memory Maze is about our daughters I saw this quote and it just seemed right (yes I love using quotes I have adult children so it's hard to get photos LOL)

I started off painting the edge of the inside of the canvas with Azure Impasto (not a colour I would normally use but I need to use other than the ones I always use LOL)

I used the Noughts and Crosses Stencil around the edge of the canvas with some Heavy Body Gel
I wasn't happy with Azure so I painted everything with Dylusions Calypso Teal

I then used the Mini Divided Heart Stencil in the centre of the canvas randomly which I then painted with Colour Blast Colour Shimmer Cube - Snow White for some shimmer in the background

I then use some more Colour Shimmer Cubes in a variety of colours but the ones I used on my canvas were - Deep Water, Sunshine, Rose Petal, Punch and Bling

I used the Snow White Shimmer Cube on the Words Fancy Awesome, Spectacular chipboard and some Bling Colour Blast Embossing powder

I used a card from my stash of Project Life cards that I never use and you can see some fabric I've had that for a while 

These are some Prima flowers that a friend gave me so I had to use them and I love flair buttons and this one is so true with the quote

Then I used some little white Kaisercraft flowers on the canvas as well cause I love flowers

Bling Challenge for Art and Soul Studio

Hey Everyone

This months challenge for Art and Soul Studio is all about Bling and who doesn't like bling 
I love the whole mood board this month it's so feminine, soft and pretty
If you enter the challenge on our Facebook page Soul Sisters you have the chance to win one of three $50 vouchers to spend at the store

The photo is of my chandelier in my bedroom I told hubby when we finally did our room no matter what we are having a chandelier in our room 
It's not a huge grand one it's perfect for the size of our bedroom
I played underneath to take it as it's over our bed

I started off with a timber frame and gessoed it so when I painted it the paint would go on smooth

This is the back of the frame which I painted with gesso as well so I could use the mix of Heavy Body Gel and a fine glitter

I used the mix through the Bohemian Bouquet Stencil

I then used Colour Blast Snow White Embossing Powder randomly on the frame for a bit more bling and sparkle

I had some tulle that has bling in it so of course I had to use that 

I added the stem of flowers and then added some of the other flowers in amongst it all
Then added some plastic bling randomly through out the mix
I had the large blog flower which I love - it fit perfect on this project

As you can see I used a lot of the Rose Gold painting all the metal and paper clay

Products from Art and Soul Studio 
Prima Say it with Crystals from my stash
Prima Flower stem from my stash
Paper clay from Mum
Metal and some bling from my stash
Colour Blast Embossing Powder Snow White

Peaceful for Creative Artiste Mixed Media Challenge

Hey Everyone

This month on Creative Artiste Mixed Media Challenge Blog my project is a photo of Erskine Falls in Lorne that my son in law took while they were away with friends
It just looks so peaceful

I used some Kraft cardstock and gave it a coat of clear gesso so that any mixed media products would stay their true colour 

I decided to use three different Distress Oxides - Crushed Olive, Peeled Paint and Forest Moss 
So I rubbed each of them on my heat matt sprayed a little water and took some plastic to dab around the cardstock - drying in-between each colour

 I used some 3D Matte Gel through a Memory Maze Stencil  Memory Maze River Pebble Stencil

I added some muslin behind the photo then used some Sticky Notes from Flutteryby Designs

Then I embellished a little with some metal leaves and a bird

Thank you for visiting I hope you come back soon x


Like or Love for Helmar

Hey Everyone

My turn on the Helmar Blog today so make sure you check it out and see what everyone else has been up to while you're here
Also check out the Helmar store to see what other products the sell I'm sure they will have something you'll need and your local store will surely be able to get

I started off with sticking down the photo onto the Antique Vintage Ornate Frame from Memory Maze Laser Cuts using the Helmar Professional Acid Free Glue

Then using the Helmar Craft & Hobby PVA Glue I adhered the two piece of the frame together 

I painted some Dark Chocolate Impasto over the chipboard first then randomly painted some Rusty Paper paint by VIVA
While the rust paint was still wet I dabbed a little brown through it so it mixed then added a little Art Alchemy Patina Effect Blue Paste 

As you can see I used a lot of metal and I used the Helmar Premium Craft Glue to stick all the embellishments with

I then used some Art Alchemy Opal Magic Royal Robes Wax over the metal and a little on the chipboard just for a pop of colour

I added some Little Birdie Pearl Florettes (there always has to be flowers)

I used some Prima Say it in Crystals Lavender I used just the pink ones

And to finish it off I added a glass cabochon
