Mixed Media Tag

Hey all, I just wanted to pop in and share with you all a mixed media inspired tag I created. 


I started with a large shipping tag that I backed with some thick chipboard for added sturdiness


I pulled out my handmade circle stencil and some modelling paste
 and completely covered my tag
 Once this dried I stamped down one edge with Jet Black Stazon and a large script stamp


I pulled out these three sprays from Lindy's Stamp Gang.  They are Dark Chocolate Truffles; Tibetan Poppy Teal and Autumn Maple Crimson
 Here is the first coat of Tibetan Poppy Teal
 and the second and third coats.

 Then I decided to spray it with some of the Autumn Maple Crimson and I thought Oh no I have ruined it!!.  It went this mucky purple colour you see here.  Unfortunately peoples this is where most of the process pics stop.  I got busy trying to fix what I considered a hot mess.

This is what I ended up with....
In my efforts to salvage this tag I inked up the edge of the tag with more of the Jet Blac stazon and I splattered on some of the Dark Chocolate Truffles, which, once they dried, left gold splatters.  This really helped to blend in all the metal embellishments from Faith Pocock Craft Studio Ltd.

Here are some close ups on all the details....





Well readers that is it.  If you are going to SENZ this year please stop by the Faith Pocock Craft Studio Ltd stall and say hello. I would love to meet you :)

A Gift bag and card

Well readers it is that time of the week again....time for my Mad About Scrappin Monday project share.   This week I have dug out some of the scraps and off cuts from my previous projects to create this cute little card and gift bag...


The little gift bag is something that Leanne shared a Pinterest link with me https://www.pinterest.com/pin/273804852317423002/ to create these cute little bags.

 ***********************************
Here is mine all covered with some offcuts from the paper pad, some lace,  seambinding and paper flower.






My card was created using a Kraft card base that was included in my kit and one of the cut outs from the paper pad.  I have used some Tim Holtz distress ink and a water brush to softly colour in the birds chests.



I have used my crimper on the kraft strip and topped it with a small piece of hessian.  I pulled some threads from the hessian and added them under the flower.


Well readers this is all I have for you today.  I hope I have inspired you to create and please go check out the Mad About Scrappin store to see all the newest arrivals for this month.  Please be sure to check out the links below to see what my other creative team mates have been up to...

Artist Trading Block



Well readers, the countdown is on...only 7 more days till hubby and I fly out to New Zealand for this years SENZ.  I am excited to catch up with Faith again and to meet some of my New Zealand scrapping buddies.   So peeps as I am in a bit of a panic (I still have to pack) this weeks post is really gonna be a short n sweet one.

I have created this cute wee little artist trading block.  Now don't be fooled by the photos, when I say wee I mean wee :) this little cutie is only 2 1/2 inches square or for us metric scrappers 6.5cm's.  I have constructed this with some cereal boxes using the good old fashioned cube template.  I have mat all the surfaces using two layers of Marion Smiths "Timekeeper" 6x6 paper pad.  I have used both sides of the "Marchant" print.

and here is how it all turned out.










Well readers that is it...I better get to and start packing my suitcase.  If you are going to SENZ this year please stop by the Faith Pocock Craft Studio Ltd stall and say hello to us...

A Few More cards...

Hi all, I am back to share with you my Monday Mad About Scrappin Project share.  I am still working with this months kit, which included some fabulous canvas embellishments and the lovely Junque Gypsy papers from Marion Smith.

I have three cards to share with you all today.  Two of the card bases are 6x6" from Creativ, and for my Aussie readers these are available in some Kmart stores.  I loved using these bases as there was more room to scrap and they showcased some of the papers beautifully.  Some of these patterned paper are just too hard to cut up...My first card is one of them.


I have used the whole "Nota Bene" paper to create this card. 


I have used a paper rose and metal butterfly from my stash, paper doily, wooden icon, wooden word from my kit and I fussy cut one of the tags. 


 I have also added a gypsy image from the papers to the inside of the wooden frame.

***********

My next large card uses the Dolce Vita page and some cuts from the reverse of this page.  I have again teamed it up with some of the pretty pink flowers from my kit and another of the paper doily's.

Last, but buy no means least, I have used one of the white card bases from kit and one of the heart shaped canvas tags.  





I have mat the base with "Faux Pas" and embellished with more of the soft baby pink paper flowers, a snippet off a paper doily and one of the mulberry paper butterflies. 



 I have added a small wooden heart icon that I have added some pink micro beads to.
