Aura for Creative Artiste Mixed Media Challenges

This month at Creative Artiste Mixed Media Challenges we have Scrapmatts as our sponsors 

Make sure you check out their STORE they have a huge variety of products including my favourite metal embellishments and stencils as well as lots of chipboard and paper tole products

Check out the Creative Artiste Mixed Media blog to get some inspiration and enter the challenge you never know you might be the lucky person to win the great prize for Scrapmatts

This is a photo of my god daughter Emily she is very special, smart, kind, naughty (LOL) and has an old soul 
When I printed the photo out she has an aura around her 
I don't know if it's to do with the lighting or what but she has a spiritual connection to the angels

 I used the Prima Alchemy Paints in the opal colours to give a soft glow around the photo

I used the Tile pattern stencil, Metal charms and the Butterflies from Scrapmatts

I used some deco foil on all the metal in a rainbow colour to add a bit of shimmer

Thanks for visiting I hope you will come back soon xx

On the farm With My Time To Craft

The challenge for My Time To Craft Challenge is something to do with down on the farm
Make sure you come over to the BLOG to see what the other design team members came up with

I don't really have a farm to visit or spend time at so when I was trying to work out what to do I came across this photo online and that made me feel like I was there

The flowers are so pretty

I made it a simple layout as I wanted the photo to be the main focus

Thanks for visiting I hope you will come back soon xx

A friend of my daughter and her fianc├ęs took this photo and I had to use it

I bought some more  Colour Blast products and had to have a play

I used a Kaisercraft Be-YOU-tiful gloss specialty paper it has like a resist effect so when I sprinkled the Duke Shimmer Dust then sprayed the water it it didn't stay on the gloss pattern

When I had the wording on my mat I added some of the Sunflower Shimmer Dust and sprayed it with some water so it gives a few different shades of yellow

I used the Bling Colour Blast Paste through a stencil its so cool cause it still shows the colours underneath but has a raised shimmery texture

I mixed some of the Sunflower Shimmer Dust into the gesso and here you can see how the texture paste has become transparent enough to show the background pattern

The flower was coloured with the Duke Shimmer Dust

Thank you for visiting and I hoe you will come back soon xx
