Summer of Colour Week 4: 1 red + 1 red + 1 metallic

July 3rd 2015
"Surrender the Booty!"

Just loved this week's colour combo for the Colour of Summer - I like to colour with red and I enjoyed playing with my gold embossing powder.

I used a stencil with embossing liquid for the bottom of the page and embossed with the gold powder. And I cut the flag and skull from black card and covered with embossing fluid too and gold embossed - love the look (the skull embossed with a deep red powder).

I added some gold thread and red/white string to the pirate flag. Stamped image is by JessicaLynnOriginal and is one of her commissioned Jasmine Becket-Griffith stamps - just love the Jasmine Becket-Griffith range - you must check them out in store!!!!

This pic the flash went off but I like it because it shows the real metallic gold embossing powder shine! As always I am looking forward to mext week's colour combo!

Friends are God's Apology for Relations.......

A great theme for the month of July at the Unruly Paperarts Site - "Family Ties" - as always we have the "words" for inspiration AND the "colour palette" so take your pick or use both to be "inspired" and create and then link up to the website so we can all share your creation!

I had so much fun making this journal page in my large journal - so much space to play and add colour and texture! I used paints, texture paste, stencils, washi, stamps - lots of lovely stuff from my stash LOL!!!!!!

These two gorgeous gals were made up of elements from an Art Tea Life Collage Sheet (Art Tea Life did have an Etsy Store but at time of writing this up there are not currently any items in the store). they are just so cute and I thought they were perfect for my page and also the quote I stamped on the little tags. We would love to see your inspired projects for this month's Reader's Art Quest!!!!

Go Red, White & Blue.....

Summer of Colour Week 3: 1 purple + 1 purple + 1 yellow

June 28th 2015

Wow what great colours for this week's Summer of Colour!!!! I love purple - any shade!!

I went bright yellow and 2 bright shades of purple and made my background with acrylic paint and a credit card - always love the effect of dragging the paint across the page! Painted a piece of muslin cloth yellow as well. Added a gorgeous birdcage charm & some sticky mesh. Stamped image coloured with Copic Markers.

Stamped image is one of the licensed Jasmine Becket- Griffith stamps by JessicaLynnOriginal - "Red Maple Fairy". The flower stamp is from JLO as well but LOL I forgot the other side of the page had some pearls on it so I couldn't get a "flat" surface to stamp - oh well I still like the effect and I added some painted circles and swiped colour over the stamped gal too to blend it all in together.

JesssicaLynnOriginal "True Love" Stamp Set Release & Blog Hop!

June 27th 2015
Love is in the air!!

Celebrate all things love with this versatile clear stamp set from JessicaLynnOriginal. Perfect for Weddings, Valentine’s Day, Sweetest Day or just showing that special someone you are thinking about them, this set is great alone or used with other sets. The phrasing and butterflies will fit in the banner or use your imagination!

I've made a few creations for this new release Blog Hop - firstly some pastel coloured tags - I love making tag art and the stamps from this set were perfect! I used stencils made on my Silhouette to add the Gesso layer to the back of the tag and Gelatos over the top - just beautiful colouring!Images were stamped directly onto the tags. something quick and easy you can try. I added dyed ribbon to the tops.

Next I have made a Pocket Letter - this is the first one I have ever made and of course the theme is "Love" - just perfect for this hop! I actually used stamps from 3 different JessicaLynnOriginal Stamp Sets to show you how easy it is to mix & match.

Stamp Sets Used:
True love
Happy Valentines Day I Love You
Mason Jar DIY Crafting & Creating

I made the background card myself with stamps from the new True Love Set plus a great JLO Flower Stamps with acrylic paints and stencils. Why buy patterned paper when you can use your stamp sets and get great value for money?


Here are close up pictures of each row of my pocket letter - as you can see I have combined stamps coloured with Copic markers, cut outs from my Silhouette, washi tape, charms, fabric etc.:

Inspiration Wednesday Week 10

June 25th 2015

Another fabulous IW Lesson with Donna Downey! I love working with bits & pieces on hand and this collage style background was a perfect way to use up things I can't bear to throw away LOL!

I like the basic black & white theme plus I used a bit of cream paint on the top half as well. Really love how this turned out. Great to be trying more things out of the comfort zone!

Add some Pearls or Gems......

June 24th 2015

A cute and fun challenge at Wicked Wednesday this week - we want to see pearls and/or gems on your ATC! Mine is very simple - I have one little gem on this gorgeous gal's choker!! PPinky Dolls are our sponsor - they have the most beautiful images - this is the first time I have used an image from PPinky and I was a little scared to try colouring so I decided to pull out my chalks and little eye makeup applicators and colour her that way - I sprayed the ATC with sealer and then added the gem. I really didn't want to add anything else - I just love this the way it is!

Took a few pics - wasn't sure which showed the colours better!!
