....our crazy adventure

HOWDY.....thank you for stopping by the UmWowStudio blog today.
I have a fun little project I created.
I was digging around in my 'tovers pile
and found a strip of paper I had created.
I had adhered a piece of burlap to a piece of Kraft paper
and I had stenciled on the paper with

Seemed like this was a good place to start!

I love trying new things so I pulled out a few of my
new Baked Textures and embossed it onto my "paper"!

When I was done playing with color on my paper
I cut it up into ATC's.

I then pulled out my bag of UmWowStudio pieces parts.
I decided to use the "leftovers" from the

To make the chippies even better, 
I pulled out a dollop of Modeling Paste and mixed in a bit of
beach sand to add MORE texture.

I repeated the technique using

I also smeared a bit of the left over "texture" onto the ATC's.

When my newly textured chippies were dry,
I painted them with a bit of Glam
then I gave them a spritz of water to mix the color up.

I put my ATC's together
and adhered them to a piece of barn board.

Here are a few closeups of my ATC's.

I hope you enjoyed my creative adventure....
I encourage you to try something NEW today!

Blessed are the curious

Hello everyone,

I have a tag to share today. I have heat embossed the butterfly chipboard and filmed the process so I don't have to explain ! lol

As a base a used a piece of design paper. I added some stamping, scribbling, a little gesso and embossing. 

The butterfly is placed on some silk sari ribbon which I have stitched down the sides. 

You will find the Butterfly HERE.

I am trying to use up my old stash of bits and bobs, these paper flowers are of that stash so I added a brad from the same stash and glued the whole thing down onto the tag...

I think it turned out nice, now if you like to know what I did to the chipboard then hop over to YouTube and have a look ! 

I hope you enjoy watching. 

Until next time !

Wedding Layouts

HOWDY.....UWS Fans
Hope all is WELL!
I recently have gone back to my creative roots....
and created 2 scrapbook pages.
I began the process by printing out bunch photos family photos.
I was drawn to pictures from my daughter's wedding.

My first choice was to create a page
of a special moment with my daughter.

I then went to my stash of  UmWowStudio chippies
to find one I thought would go well.
I chose one from my
Signature Collection with UmWowStudio
I found one of UmWowStudio's word chippies


Something Old, Something New
Something Borrowed, Something Blue

I painted the UmWowStudio ~ Large Ivy with a bit of Glimmer Glam.

I chose to keep the UmWowStudio chippie ~ Adore natural.

Here is the other layout I created using another of
my Favorite photos from that special day!

I pulled out UmWowStudio chippie ~ Leafy Branch
from my Signature collection.
I painted the chippie with a bit of green paint
and cut it apart to nestle into my flowers.

Thank you for stopping by to take of peek at my layouts!
Until next time.....Be Creative!

No place like home

Hello everyone,

For my post today I made a mini Art Journal page.

 I kept it really simple this time. I stamped the background and then heat embossed it with two layers of Seth Apther's Baked Texture "Vintage Beeswax". Next I embossed the edges of the page with "Ancient Amber". I didn't do much to the Tiny Houses chipboards, just wiped them over a brown Archival ink pad. The line of music paper and the sentiment were also heat embossed with the Vintage Beeswax powder. 

A close up. 

Doesn't it look yummy ! 

I have used the Tiny Houses Mash Chipboards and you'll find them HERE

Thank you so much for stopping by today !

A wallhanging ...

Hello everyone,

I am sharing a wallhanging today. It was also an experiment with embossing powders which didn't quite go to plan, oh well..

And here's what I did to the chipboard.. 

I glued the star chipboard on some book paper..

I tore off the excess... 

I then thought to fill it with UTEE but see what happened:

I decided to go with it anyway and added a layer of the new Emerald Creek/Seth Apter embossing powders of the top. I used Dirty Sand. 

Sorry for the blurred photo, my camera obviously focussed on the pot of embossing powder.. 

I actually think that looks really cool ! 

So here is the finished project. The base is grey board of which I painted the edges with black gesso. The top layer is a piece of a box. I tore off the top layer of paper here and there to expose the ridges. 
I added the model paste through the UmWow Dahlia stencil, then added a layer gesso over the top.
I used Lindy's Sprays to colour the paper. 

I think it turned out nice, even if I did have trouble with the UTEE.. 

I have used the Dahlia Stencil --> HERE

and the Sketchy Star --> HERE

Thank you for stopping by today !
