Mixed Media Supplies Design Team

Hey everyone

I have been lucky enough to have been picked for the Mixed Media Supplies Design Team

Make sure you check out the Facebook Page and Blog to see what projects the Design Team create with the great products that we have

So here is my first project 
I made a small tag using the Copper Mica Power and the Crackle background stamp



I used some heat and stick powder with some embossing powder on the little plastic heart 

I put a small about of the mica powder in some impasto to give the background some dimension


On my metal embellishment I used some versamark and some heat and stick powder so I could emboss the crackle stamp to add some texture and interest


 I did the same thing on the butterfly 
- you can also mix the mica powder in clear embossing powder and it will give you the same effect




Thank you for visiting I hope you will be back soon xx

Oxides

Hey Everyone


I love oxides and love experimenting with them

I tried them on tracing paper WOW the affect that came out is so cool

The paper rippled and the oxides dried so cool


The back of the paper came out different it didn't have the chalk finish
It's so bright

Well nothing beats rejuvenating something that no longer is being used

My friend shared a photo of her puppy Max and I couldn't resist using the photo

How cute is he?



I painted the frame black and added lots of metal (I love metal as much as I love flowers)

Kraft + August challenge

Hey everyone hope you're all well and getting creative 

This is my interpretation of the challenge at Kraft + August challenge


This is the inspiration for the challenge 

  

The photo was taken in Ballarat over the Queens birthday weekend (basketball tournament) by my friend Janine who kindly let me use it 
It's so cool with the fog and the lights through the trees


 I used lots of card pieces to add some layers and of course some metal




With the background I used some oxides - walnut stain and vintage photo through a stencil with tiny squares in it to give it a faded look and then rubbed some of the fossilized amber over parts where I had used impasto through a honeycomb stencil for a bit more colour 


Thanks for visiting and I hope you will come back soon xx

Seaworld Resort for My Time To Craft

Hi Everyone

This photo was taken over 12 years ago when we went to Seaworld and stayed at their resort 
It was so peaceful that day when I took the photo 
I'd forgotten about it until recently 

This is for the sketch challenge at My Time To Craft so make sure you visit the Blog, join in and check out the inspiration form the Design Team



I created a video on

This is my interpretation of the sketch


I used crackle paste to get the foamy sandy look with a little bit of embossing powder a sand colour



On the background I used water paper with Twinkling h20s in Sea Spray, Dutch Iris, Ocean Wave and a little splatter of Vanilla Bean Which I also used over the crackle paste 


All the metal, chipboard and some of the flowers were also coloured with the H2os


I then sprinkled some Lindy's Stamp Gang embossing powder in Bavarian Blue and added some sand into the impasto to give more texture


Thanks for visiting and I hope you will be back soon xx
