Friday, July 7, 2017 with fairies....

Hello everyone,

Corrie here, and today it is my turn to try and inspire you to use those fabulous UmWow Studio Chipboards. I have only used one in my Art Journal page but it is very effective !

I wanted to use similar colours to the background I have used, which is a gelli printed piece of paper. 

So I used three different embossing powders but in the end I had to use some markers too to get it how I wanted it. 

I added some green and later also some orange (no photo, sorry).

Better with a little green... 

Here is the finished page again. I also used a stencil and first I used Carved Pumpkin distress ink to stencil the hearts but didn't like that too much so I wiped most of it off again. I then took my white pen, put the stencil back on and drew around the faint orange hearts; I do like the result. 

I added some paper, lace ribbon, some stamped and cut out flowers and the little girl is also a stamp. Isn't that amazing. Looks like a photo, doesn't it. (All stamps used by VivaLasVegaStamps)

Here you can see the orange I added to the viewfinder. I used Pitt Big Brush markers for this because it dries permanent. 

I love this sentiment ! 

I have used the vintage viewfinder; you find it HERE

and the heart stencil 

You'll find it HERE

Thank you for stopping by today !

UmWowStudio New Release

Hi UmWowStudio Fans.....
I am SOOO EXCITED to announce 
UmWowStudio and I have partnered as part of

The new release consists of 6 Nature inspired chipboard designs.
And today I am excited to share my first creation with YOU!

One thing I LOVE about UmWowStudios chipboard it is extra thick
and able to take most anything you throw at it.

I began by choosing my UmWowStudio Knobby Branch
Then I applied a layer of Crackle Paste.
When dry I spritzed with Glimmer Mist and splattered
with Glimmer Glam.

I wasn't a hundred percent happy with the look
so I rubbed on a bit of StazOn.
When dry....I cut the my UmWowStudio Knobby Branch apart.
(Don't be's OK! I designed them to be cut apart)

Next I pulled out UmWowStudios ~ Grid Stencil
and applied a bit of Clear Gesso
onto a Natural Stretched Canvas.

I then pulled out the my UmWowStudio ~ Large Ivy
I applied a layer of Glimmer Glam to both sides
of the UmWowStudio ~ Large Ivy

Then I cut the Large Ivy apart and bent the leaves.

When the stenciled image was dry,
I applied a bit of color.

It wouldn't be me if my creation didn't "say something"!

Here are more photos of my creation.

I hope you enjoyed my creation!
More of my designs can be seen here!

I would LOVE to hear your thoughts!

Use your wings

Hello everyone,

and welcome to post where today I am sharing a small art journal page.

I went for the vintage style again today. I love doing a bit of everything ! 

I decided my bird cage had to be silver ! So i got out the embossing ink and silver embossing powder. 

Here you can see how that looked after two layers of embossing powder. 

I added some black archival ink to make it a little less shiny and 'new'. 

Here is a detail of my page. I started with a piece of 7 Dots Studio paper from the Writer's Block collection. I added some paint with a brayer and stamped it randomly. I stitched around the border with my sewing machine and added some pieces of paper, thread and fabric. I added some stamped butterflies and a sentiment by Tim Holtz. That finished it off nicely. 

I have used this Chipboard:

You will find it HERE

Thank you for stopping by today !

June's Our Mixed Media Moods Challenge

Hi UmWowStudio Fans.....
Spring has popped....
the birds are singing 
and I am in the full throws of preparing the decorations
for my daughters upcoming wedding. 
Due to all the hubbub.....
I have been very lacking in inspiration of late
so I decided to pop over
to our fearless leader challenge....
Our Mixed Media Moods
everything about this mood board made my heart sing.

SOOOO.....I went to my box of UmWowStudio goodies
and decided to challenge myself to create with the
pieces parts that were floating around in the bottom of my box.

I then covered a piece of artboard
with vintage dictionary paper.
When dry, I spritzed it with water and tore off the
loose edges.

I then arranged the leftover chippies on my artboard.

I randomly applied Modeling Paste to the artboard
and used it as an adhesive to hold the chippies in place.
When dry, I applied a layer of Clear Gesso.

I didn't like the look of the semi painted chippies
so I created a slurry of Modeling Paste and water
and painted the chipboard.
When dry I applied another layer of Clear Gesso
to help facilitate the movement of color and water.

Now came the colors. I chose Desert Sun Glimmer Glaze
because I knew when it was dry it would be permanent.

Once dry, I spritzed the canvas with Sapphire Glimmer Mist.
Then, I used a baby wipe to take off some of the Sapphire
to expose more of the yellow.
I painted on a bit more Desert Sun then ran 
my Vintage Photo ink pad over top of the canvas. 
This made my heart sing....again!

I pulled out my package of
UmWowStudio ~ Home Grown Mash
and painted my chosen leaves green.

Here is my finished project.....

Thank you SOOO MUCH for stoppin' by the blog today.
I hoped you enjoyed my creative process....
POP over to Our Mixed Media Moods and play along!!
