Flight of Fancy Mixed Media Canvas

Hello everyone.  How was your long Easter weekend? Today I’m excited to share with you a colorful canvas featuring a mix of Bella Florals and Bling, with a mixed media twist.  See if you can spot all of them:

“Flight Of Fancy”

Bella materials: White Bella Florals, Floral Bling, Accent Flourish Bling, Spiral Flourish Bling, Silver Glitter Paper, Green Glitter Paper

Fundamentals materials: Birds Decoupage Set

Ruby Rock-It materials: Purple Glitter

I’ve used a hexagon canvas as the base of this project.  I then layered my mediums on top, adding different colors around the canvas.

I then layered some super gorgeous Bella Bling around the Fundamentals Bird Papertole.  The new Bling designs are divine and I just can’t get enough adding these beauties on my creations.

I punched some shapes from a couple of Bella Glittered Cardstock and surrounded them on the canvas.

For added glitz, I sprinkled some Purple Ruby Rock-It Glitter to match the color of the canvas.  Some splatters are added throughout for the final finishing touch.

So there’s my canvas.  I had a blast creating it and I hope you enjoyed my post today.  Check out the Ruby Rock-It shop HERE, you’ll find all the supplies you’ll need for all types of paper craft and beading.

Thanks for popping in.

Cheers,

 

 

Imagine – ATC Hanging Wall Art

Happy Easter to you!  It’s nice to be creating and blogging again after a very busy start to the month.  We have a new April “Feathers” Challenge up at the Creative Studio for Canvas Corp Brands:

This month we have a different prize – we will invite the winner of the challenge to be our Guest Designer in June. This means that you will get a box filled with goodies from all 3 Canvas Corp Brands to play with! 

To enter this challenge you need to link up your entry  Blog post, or post on Instagram, Facebook or Pinterest (link to the actual project – not the whole page) by using the linkytool HERE. You have until the end of May 5 to submit your project!  All submissions must have #ccbchallenge somewhere to be considered.

Here’s my April “Feathers” project:

“Imagine” ATC Hanging Wall Art

Canvas Corp Brands Materials:

Tattered Angels:
Navy High Impact Paint
Chalkboard Mists: Grape Ape, Black Orchid, Splash, Chalk
Glimmer Mists: Sapphire, Night B4 Christmas, Dragonfly, Periwinkle Bouquet, Abominable Snowman, Pearl, Crushed Shells, Gold

Canvas Corp:
Denim Fabric Sheet
Teal Burlap Flower
Dark Blue Burlap Sheet
Sisal Rope
Natural Hank Cord Rope
Cream Hank Braided Rope
Chocolate & Ivory Feathers Reverse 12×12 Paper

7 Gypsies: Lace Trimmings

I was inspired by the whole mood board…the gorgeous deep shades of blue and purple, the feathers, and the dream catcher.

I thought what a great idea it would be to transform an ATC into a hanging wall art inspired by the concept of dream catchers.

I’ve also used a couple of gorgeous Scrapmatts chipboards and stencil for this project:

Scrapmatts Chipboards: ATC10-008 Rounded Corners 01, CB1028 Butterflies 18, CB1238 Scrap Words 24

Scrapmatts Stencil: ST5033 Stencil Triangles

I really wanted to add layers and layers of color and texture throughout this hanging ATC wall art.  If you look closely you’ll see crackle here and there, dimensional butterflies against the stenciled triangles immersed in Tattered Angels paints.  I really love every single nook and cranny of this project.

I hope I’ve inspired you to join our awesome April “Feathers” Challenge.  Simply link up your entry HERE.  There’s an amazing prize pack and guest design spot up for grabs.  We can’t wait to see all your beautiful creations.  You’ve got 20 days to enter so get creating.

Enjoy your Easter weekend!

My Lovely Story

Happy St. Patrick’s day everyone! I’d like to share my March layout class with you which I’ve had a pleasure teaching to the lovely ladies that attended and purchased the kits.   Thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart.  You inspire me to brew up more ideas and classes, and you keep me coming back to teach more.  Here’s my layout:

“My Lovely Story”

This layout features Blue Fern Studios’ super gorgeous Memoires collection, which was a big hit in the class.  So what’s the story behind the photos? My daughter is flaunting here rosy teething cheeks, she’s such a trooper the annoying pain littlies usually get doesn’t seem to faze her.

For more updates on my classes and kits, you can subscribe to the Scrapaholics newsletter here.

That’s it for today’s post.  Thanks for stopping by and may the luck of the Irish be with you.  Have a great weekend!

Cheers,


#Look At Me

Today I’m sharing a layout with Scrapmatts chipboards and Tattered Angels mists, and it is also the second time this month that Scrapmatts is guest designing for CSI-Colors, Stories, Inspirations.  This time we’ve solved CSI Case File#226:

It is also inspired by My Creative Scrapbook’s February Sketch:

Here’s my take on both inspirations:

“#Look At Me”

For the base of my layout, I simply flattened a piece of good ol’ corrugated cardboard and painted them with white acrylic paint.  I love the texture and ridges it gives the background plus the sturdy base.

The background colors are layers of gorgeous Tattered Angels paints.  The #look at me chipboards are given a good mist of Cadillac Pink Glimmer Mist.

Tattered Angels Paints: Navy High Impact Paint, Splash Chalkboard Mist, Glimmer Mists (Mint Julip; English Ivy; Cadillac Pink; Tutti Frutti)

Scrapmatts Chipboards: Circle Mesh (CB5130), Assorted Words (CB6116), Cats (CB1014), Leaf Spray (CB5166), Scrap Words (CB1238)

The rest of the Scrapmatts chipboards have been given a coat of white paint…easy, effective, and works every time.  The leaves were die cut from a scrap of white paper which I’ve given the bubble technique with Tattered Angels’ English Ivy Glimmer Mist.

This is the first time my daughter tried on some bubblegum lip gloss.  She got it from a party loot bag and boy oh boy did she love it.  I’ve written at the back that it makes me happy scrapping and looking back at the moments when she’s growing up to be a girly girl.  Time surely flies!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed today’s layout.  I had fun creating it and it got my daughter’s seal of approval too (lol!).

Many thanks to CSI for having the Scrapmatts team and for My Creative Scrapbook’s awesome sketch.

Pink Mixed Media Apple

Today I’m sharing my off the page pink mixed media apple inspired by Berry 71 Bleu’s February Challenge:

15823263_10154066152091781_5181218238541316045_n

Isn’t the mood board gorgeous? It’s absolutely perfect for the month of love, gorgeous soft pink shades and flowers.  Here’s my take on it:

I was inspired by all the pink colors and florals from the mood board, and the feeling of love.  I’ve used Scrapmatts’ chipboards and stencil to build my pink apple.

Scrapmatts chipboards: Ornate Frames (CB4069), Leaf Spray (CB5166), Scrap Words (CB6113)

Scrapmatts stencil: Borders (ST1010)

For the beautiful colors, I layered a few Tattered Angels Paints to achieve the balance of soft, with little hints of bright pink to tie it altogether.

Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists: Tutti Frutti, Cadillac Pink, Black Cherry, It’s Pink, Pearl

Tattered Angels Chalkboard Mists: Polka Dot Pink, Chalk

I had fun creating my little apple, and I hope you like it as much as I do.  Thanks so much for popping in and I hope you’ve been spoilt on Valentine’s day.

Cheers,

Celebrate One

Good day! I’ve been very busy with family and work commitments lately which meant I wasn’t able to create for More Than Words’ December Challenge.  So for this month I made sure I had time to create for the awesome January challenge which is “Celebrate & Bling”:

mtw-201701-main

Can I just say that I looooove this challenge.  Bling runs in my scrapbooking veins :).  Here’s my layout:

“Celebrate One”

Celebrate One Today

This is my youngest daughter’s 1st birthday photos which I adore so much.  She’s a few years older now but that doesn’t stop me from scrapping and reminiscing on older photos, celebrations, and treasured memories.

018

I’ve used some Scrapmatts chipboards and stencils for texture, dimension, and title for my page.

Scrapmatts Chipboards: Nested Stars (CB5021), Assorted Words (CB6116), Butterflies (CB1045), Scrap Words (CB1237)

Scrapmatts Stencils: Leaf Spray (ST5004), Strings (ST1021)

012

I really wanted the photos to stand out which is why I opted for a full on black background with shimmery pearl and white touches.  To achieve this I used my trusty Tattered Angels paints.

Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists: Pearl, Graphite, It’s Black

Tattered Angels Chalkboard Mists: Chalk, Admiral, Monolith

0131

I embossed the stars chipboards with some glittery black embossing powder and then layered these under the photo.  The photos are framed with black glittered paper.

I misted the Admiral Chalkboard Mist and the Graphite and It’s Black Glimmer Mist onto my flowers to blend with the black background.

0101

For the butterflies, I simply misted the Monolith Chalkboard mist for a subtle addition of color.  For the title chipboard, I simply painted it white and then added a coat of Chalk Chalkboard mist for added glimmer.

023

The shimmery background is made up of the Pearl Glimmer Mist, Admiral and Chalk Chalkboard Mists.  It’s all finished off with the addition of a variety of bling around the layout.

026

So there’s my blinged up, glittery and shimmery celebration layout.  Thanks to More Than Words for the awesome challenge and thanks for popping in.
