A page from my Art Journal

In this page I used a lot of inks (mainly Dylusions), a Balzer Designs stencil and modelling paste.

I chose a quote from Pinterest and I stamped it with my alphabet stamps.
I coloured the modelling paste with Viva Decor wax paste.

wedding card

I return after a long creative block with a wedding card I made for a friend.
I used Walzingmouse Stamps (leaves and flowers) and Papertrey stamps (sentiment and flourish).

Since I had a huge creative block, I cased this card. My inspiration came from THIS card made by Laurie Schmidlin.

I am going to enter this card for the current Simon Says Stamps challenge (Monday challenge).

Art journal + quote

I found a quote on Pinterest and I wanted to create a journal page with it.
I used some scrap cardstock coloured with Twinkling H20s.

I stamped a background with Chocolate Baroque stamps (UK Company), then I added some liquid pearls through a stencil.
I stamped the quote with an alphabet set.

Blue and green mixed media canvas

I made a mixed media canvas for a friend who attended a Finnabair's (Anna Dobrowska) workshop with me in Sweden.

We really liked the techniques Finnabair tought in the class and we created many mixed media canvases last year.

In this canvas, I used a lot of embellishments I collected during the past years.
I cannot explain in details the techniques because Finnabair teaches them in person during her workshops.

This time, instead of colouring the canvas with Luminarte Primary Elements, I used Dylusion sprays and Viva Decor wax.

I stamped the quote with an alphabet stamp set. I coloured the background paper with Dylusion sprays as well.

I will submit this canvas for the Anything goes challenge on Simon's Says Stamp blog.

Timeless Tuesday Challenge - create a shaped card

I have a card with a no-traditional shape for the Timeless Tuesday Challenge issued by Flourishes.
The floral image and the hummingbird are Flourish stamps. The sentiment is from a Papertrey set. I also stamped a frame ( a bit hidden under the flowers) with Waltzingmouse stamps. Due to the shape of the card,  I added a smaller nestabilities on the back with a message for a friend.

I coloured the images with Copic markers.
I really love how it turned out!

Mixed media canvas - painted cluster

I really love mixed media art and I love Paperartsy products and videos.
There is a new video on the Paper Artsy website that shows how to make a painted cluster.
Click HERE to see the video. I have also been on a Finnabair class last winter and I learned some of the techniques I used on this canvas.

I used small beads, buttons, air clay hearts and stars, brads and lace for the background. Then, I made a cluster with some die cut elements. I die cut the watch parts and cogs from plywood or foil tape (on a cardboard base). I used Glossy Accents, Crackle Accents, paints, Luminarte Primary Elements, embossing powders sprayed with shimmer mists while they were painted.

Christmas cards

I made only a few Xmas cards this year.
I decided to use the Yonder Star background from Waltzingmouse Stamps. I coloured the background with distress inks.
The main image was a free stamp that came with the December issue of Craft Stamper magazine (UK magazine).
The ribbon is from Papertrey.
