CHRISTMAS FRAME

hello friends
 have been playing in my craft room with the gorgeous 
Christmas papers from MEGS GARDEN 
this range is titled 
'Twinkling Christmas' 
to go with the theme I made a reverse canvas 
& added miniature fairy lights
It was fun creating something a little different 


I made the frame with texture paste through a stencil 
then painted with gesso & 
added some jacaranda blue mixed paint to highlight the texture 
fussy cut many elements from the ephemera sheets & papers & adhered them to chipboard to give them strength .. 
the Christmas trees are from my stash. 
Adhered the background paper & all trims then added the lights.

Flowers, flourishes, silver leaves & sparkles completed the scene

OMMM MOODIVERSARY #7

Hello friends,
I know I keep repeating myself however I am enjoying
 this whole process of playing in a new to me media,
I have been scrapbooking & card making for a number of years
 however haven't really played in the 'art' genre for some time.
The variety of colours & textures inspired by the mood board
 certainly gets the mind wandering.
Thankyou to DeeDee Catron & Jenn Engles 
who are the hosts of this challenge, 
they are world renowned  mixed media artists 
who are celebrating their anniversary


My 5 x 5 project #7  was inspired by the picture of the raspberries & also the yellow flower
 I painted the background in pink, then swirled wet glue covered it with embossing powder & hit with the heat gun which added some extra bubbles to the swirls 
imitating the texture of the fruit. My large metal & smaller flowers 
were also embossed with a golden yellow. The dream tile is from my stash & I found the quote on the net.

FRAMED HEART


Hello
thank you for popping into my blog
Today I'm sharing with you a
 FRAMED HEART
created with papers from the
LAVANDE collection from
MEGS GARDEN
Purples, mauves, lilac & lavender are not colours I work with often
however this range certainly managed to get my creative juices working

The frame was a plastic one bought from a bargain store,
I painted with gesso, then rubbed with inka golds in purple & silver.
I fussy cut the floral heart & adhered it to a heart shaped doily,
A spray of flowers, a sprinkle of glitter, metal 'LOVE' title & a quote:
' the best & most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched- 
they must be felt with the heart.'
completes my project.


Again thanks for popping by my blog 
 your comments  are heart-warming
Happy Scrapping

OMMM MOODIVERSARY #6

Helloooo !!!
I am sharing another piece for the challenge 
this mood board 
 hosted by renowned mixed media artists 
DeeDee Catron & Jenn Engles 
to celebrate their anniversary 
certainly  makes me put my thinking cap on 

I have gone with colours & threads inspired by the plus sign fabric 
 texture paste, water colours, embossing powder, beads & chenille thread wound onto a cut down wooden cotton reel  created the piece which was then coated with gloss medium ... 
This was an interesting playtime as I made a few unexpected bubbles 
which actually added to the texture ... Sadly :(  my lettering didn't quite work out 
Oh well serves me right for rushing... 
Quote reads:
'LOVE is the thread that binds us together' 
 truly i am enjoying my learning curves in this wonderful world of creativity
 Enjoy the process 
Have fun
