Not all who wander are lost.

Hello everyone,

and welcome to another post from me:

For today I have made a mini art journal page and this is what it looks like :

The background was brayered with acrylic paints  The big black circle was made with a coffee mug. I used the rim...and yes I washed it and I am now using it for coffee again ! I painted the inside of the circle with white paint and then stamped with a variety of rubber stamps by VivaLasVegaStamps!

The chipboard I used was treated like this :

This is what it looks like when you take it out of it's package. 

I painted it with gesso, twice.... 

I coloured it with water colours (Prima confections) and added some details with pencils...

This is how it looks all coloured..

I added a layer of clear embossing powder over the top to protect the colours. 

This gnome stamp by VivaLasVegaStamps! is normally holding an umbrella but I just left that out and replaced it with the flower... 

How cute is he ??? 

And here is the finished project again ! 

I have used the flower on the left of this picture... this is a great set ! 

Thank you so much for stopping by today ! 

Until next time !

A Quickie Card.......

Life can get BUSY.....
as it has been around my house lately,
celebrating the holidays....
creating for Creativation.....
Then I REALIZED.... I was late for my
UmWowStudio post.

So....I ran to my craft table to whip up a QUICKIE Card!

I began by randomly covering my card face using various
UmWowStudio Stencils

I didn't dry the texture medium
between layers as I was looking for
the "white noise" effect
more than complete stencil look.

When the texture medium was dry,
I spritzed a bit of glimmer mist onto
my craft mat and dragged my card through the color.

I then chose 
I painted the leaves and stems green
and the Iris's white.
When dry, I painted on a bit of Black Orchid,
my color for 2017,
 and spritzed with a bit of water and dried.

I added a few layers of burlap
and tied a bit of jute around my card to finish it off.

And before I knew QUICKIE card was READY!
I hope you enjoyed my process

Other Products Used:Tattered Angels
Glimmer Mist ~ English Ivy

Our Leaf Stems look really incredible all layered up and included in this beautiful card.

Our Sketchy Circle peeks out of the layers.

Without a smile

Hello everone, 

and welcome to this blogpost at the end of this year ! Hasn't it gone fast ! 

For today I have made a tag:

And here is what I did with the chipboard:

I decided to use pattern paper and embossing powder to embellish my chipboard today. 

I put some masking tape on the bottom and the top because I wanted to paint the 'skirt' bit with gesso. I wanted to use embossing powder on this part and because it is really light blue, I thought it might not show it's real colour if I put it on the dark brown chipboard. I didn't want any gesso on the bottom 'stand' though... (I could've left of the tape off the top).

After approx. 3 layers of embossing powder it looked like this. 

Next I cut a piece of pattern paper in the shape of the 'bodice' and glued it on. I added some shading with a marker. 

The foot and top of the piece were coloured with a dark brown marker. I think it turned out nice. 

So for the tag I cut a #8 tag from white card stock and glued some book paper to it. I added white gesso and light blue paint and some rub ons... 
Some lines along the edges and a ribbon finished it off... 

I have used this chipboard today :
