Find Peace

There is a lot of truth in the above verbage....
Can I say ~ LIFE can be rough!
But when life becomes difficult I find peace in CREATING!

I have acquired a few new supplies and 
immersed myself in trying them out.

I pulled out several of my UmWowStudio Stencils
Wonky Circle
and my new Gel Press
along with some paint.

I created A LOT of prints
which I chose to tear up and apply
randomly to my artboard.

Then I pulled out a jar of Light & Fluffy
and applied it randonly through

When it was dry, I dropped a bit of Orange
 onto my canvas with a pipette.

Spritzed it with a bit of water to help the color move.

When it was dry I applied a layer of
Vintage Distress Medium.

I brayered on a bit of Spun Sugar
onto one of the Circle Salad stamps
and applied it randomly onto my canvas.

I then applied a layer of
White Gesso over the entire canvas.

I then mixed a bit Multi Medium Matte
with a few Prills and applied randomly to the canvas.

I repeated the technique of dropping a bit of
Caspian Sea onto the canvas and spritzing with water.

I chose the UmWowStudio chippie
which I cut in half to go under my flower cluster.
I also cut up UmWowStudio chippie
and added into my flower cluster.

I finished up my canvas with a quote ~ Great Things
which I stamped onto a piece of TissueStock
and applied it to my canvas.

I hope you enjoyed my creative journey....
I know I found a bit of peace in the process.

Find joy in the ordinary

Hello everyone,

For today's inspiration post I have used one of the new digital images by UmWow Studio. They are fantastic ! I hope you'll check them out ! I have also used one of the stencils AND a chipboard, although I don't know whether that was the right thing to do. I finished the filming and then changed the place of the chipboard but I still think it might have been better without it. I'd like to know what you think.

How gorgeous are these two ! 

Here is the whole AJ spread. It was made in my homemade gel printed book. I learned this technique in a workshop by Birgit Koopsen. 

Anyway, I have filmed the process if you would like to know the AJ pages came together.. 

These are the materials I have used :

Chipboard: Flourishes 2 

Digital : Smiley Sweeties

Stencil : Chunky heart 

Thanks so much for being here today !

Be true

Hello everyone,

and welcome to my blogpost ! I have created a mini canvas for today and have filmed the process of altering the chipboard. I hope you enjoy !

The mini canvas is aprox. 4" x 4" or 10 x 10 cm. I have painted it with acrylic paints and used Faber Castell Big Brush Markers (same as I used on the chipboard) to make the edges darker. 
I then did some stamping and added the dictionary word 'bird' and the word chip by Tim Holtz. 
That was it ! 

Link to the video is below..

You will find this fabulous chipboard HERE

Thank you for stopping by today !

Birthday Card

Hello UmWowStudio friends!

I'm here today to show you how I use the chipboard from UWS in my CAS projects. ;)

I have used a floral flourish brunch. First of all I have covered it with white gesso. After dry I have used alcohol markers to color it. I have used light and dark colors to gives more dimension and naturals.

As least I have covered the chipboard with glossy. Ok, it is not really CAS ;) But you know, you can use the UWS chipboard not only for your emotional mixed media projects. Light and easy projects too... :)

Supplies I used:

Floral Flourisch

Stay creativ!

....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!
