Altered notebook cover



I had a notebook with a black cover and it was too plain for me.
So, I took some patterned paper, I die cut some cogs and altered them with paints, embossing powders (the smallest ones have been cut out from shrink plastic and I shrinked them with my heat gun). Then, I applied some metallic Distress Paint and I sprayed it with water. I sealed the altered patterned paper with matte gel.

I will link this project to the the "all scratched up" challenge on the Simon Says Stamp blog.


I will use this notebook for my calligraphy samples.

Nature tag with Tim Holtz stamps


I created a tag with my new Tim Holtz stamps (bird of feather). I used some techniques with stencils that Tim Holtz described on his website and during the Creative Chemistry 201 class.

The feather has been stamped with distress inks and clear embossed. The background has been created with stamped stencils (with Distress inks and water).

I will link this to the "all scratched up" challenge on the Simon Says Stamp blog.

Mixed media canvas - blue challenge

I made a mixed media canvas with many die cut leaves and flowers. I used the Tattered floral die to cut the blue flower, I recycled some gelli prints and I like how it turned out.
The butterfly is from Hero Arts and it has been coloured with Copic markers.
For the background, I used gesso, die cut leaves and sprays (Luminarte Primary Elements).

The space in the middle has been left empty so I can add a photo, but I haven't decided yet.

I am going to enter this in the Simon Says Stamp Work it Wednesday challenge.

Nature inspired card

I have a card for the Work it Wednesday challenge at Simon Says Stamp. The challenge is to use blue color in a project or card.

I made a card with Tim Holtz's stamps and stencils (I used Dreamweaver crackle past through the stencil). I used Distress Stickles to create more texture on the stamped nest.
I coloured the blue background with my own mist made with Perfect pearls and watercolor.

I like how it turned out.

Mid-Summer challenge

I made a journal page that I am going to post on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog.
This week the theme is Mid-Summer.

I created a journal page with my latest Tim Holtz's stamps and crackle paste. I used the paste through a stencil (Tim Holtz).

I created the vintage background with various vintage style stamps from Sheena Douglass (Crafter's companion) and Kaisercraft.
I used Distress Inks to colour the background (I started from a piece of kraft cardstock).
