Mixed media panel - LeAnn's World 101

Hello there,
Welcome to my blog and follow my work on social media.

Here is a mixed media panel using Spy Game image from LeAnns World 101. I used an old cardboard from packaging. For the background, I used cotton gauze, die cuts instead of chipboards, some stone and for the texture I used granite sand paste. Finally, I added some corrugated sheet from packaging. 

I applied a coat of black chalk paint and then clear gesso. Once the first coat is dried completely, I dry brushed blue and green chalk paint. To finish the background, I came in with metallic mousse. I added the image to the mixed media base and to finish, I added the sentiment. 

The sentiment is You are invited, like this is an invitation to friends inviting them to play a game. 





Thank you for stopping by and hope you all enjoyed the card.
Stay happy and keep crafting.

ATC coins using mini stamps

Hello there,
Welcome to my blog and follow my work on social media.

I have ATC coins here today using stamps from Tubby craft. I have used 3 different stamps to make these. They are easy and quick to make and absolute fun too. I have a common base here which is black cardstock and die cut small circle from white cardstock. I created different background for each using stencils and inks from Tubby craft. 

What are Artist trading coins? They are miniature art created on 2.5"circle of heavy base cardstock. 



ATC with stenciled background


                   

  1. First, I stenciled the white cardstock using stencils and dye inks. Then added this to a black circle die cut. 
  2. Inks used are: Turquoise, Olive green, Lavender violet
  3. I offset the stencil to get a a complete stenciled background.
  4. I stamped the images from Lovely Owl and Butterfly Love and coloured them with colour pencils. 
  5. To embellish, I added corrugated sheet,cotton gauze and twine. 
  6. To finish the coins, I added the image and a sentiment. 

ATC with inked background


  1. For this ATC, instead of stenciling, I made an ink blended background using Turquoise, Olive green, lavender violet and added this to a black circle cardstock.
  2. I added a corrugated paper, lace and some twine to embellish the base.
  3. Stamped Unicorn dreams image and coloured it. 
  4. I added the fuzzy cut image to the base. To finish the coin, I added a couple of gemstones. I skipped adding the sentiment.

Art journaling

Hello there, 

Welcome to my blog and follow my work. 

This is my first take on art journaling and I really enjoyed making this project. I did not have any particular theme but I made it look like a summer theme by adding bright and vivid colours. I chose an image to use for my focal point. What is art jounaling? It is a way to express our thoughts and ideas in the form of art by using different mediums and techniques.
