Mixed Media and Monochromatic

Hey everyone!!

I am excited to share with you a project I made.
I made this a while ago but wanted to show you
all the possibilities and different
ideas you can do with these adorable images
and papers from Sherri Baldy My Besties.

I made a mixed media 5" x 7" canvas with img146 Prim-A-Dona and
Sherri Baldy Designer Paper in Butterfly Dreams.
This was a fun project that I enjoyed doing.  Picking all the bits and pieces
and just playing around.

For this project I have used the following supplies:
5" x 7" canvas
Stencil- Tim Holtz burlap
Distress Inks-various colors
Stampendous Bubble Gum ink pad
Airdry clay
paper roses
various embellishments cut with a Cricut
black enamel small dots

I started with printing my Butterfly Dreams paper on regular thin paper.

I took various ripped pieces and with the gesso applied to the canvas randomly.

Once dry, I took my stencil and texture paste and added randomly to the canvas
and used a heat gun to dry.  You could even place texture paste down and
apply a texture with fabric or any other items you have laying around.

I took the lace and chipboard elements and applied with gesso onto
the canvas.

Let it dry!!!!!

I took distress inks and the bubble gum ink and applied once again
randomly to the canvas .

I added the Frantage embossing enamel to areas on the canvas
and to the various embellishments

I mounted My Besties with foam pop dots and all my embellies with glue dots.

I have provided for you my copic choices for coloring her.
I did her in a monochromatic color tone with pops of pink.

Thanks for having a look!!

Hoppy Easter

Hello Besties!  Spring is here!

Today I have for you a fun little 3D card that is easy
to put together and still give you some WOW!

Let's start with all that I used.

I loved the flowers in this paper pack and decided to use it
for a few of my background papers and for my die cut.

I picked my 3d printable

I cut my papers out and die cut my shapes.

My card base is 6 x 6.

With the leftover paper from my flower die cut, I cut out
a few of the flowers to carry over to the inside and left
space to add a personalized message.

There are lots of possibilities to dream up
with all the printable available and paper packs
to mix and match.
