Family for Life.....US

Hey my friends.....
I am finally home after a WONDERFUL relaxing time in Florida
having fun in the sun and visiting family.
Upon my return, I quickly flipped everything to leave for a 
Scrappy Weekend where I taught 3 classes. 
I returned home to get to go to my 
Favorite 4 year olds Birthday Party.

TODAY, I took some me time and had a bit of free creating.
I had this canvas that needed to be redone....
So I grabbed it and let the process just flow...
no videos, no cameras....just creating!!

There is layer upon layer upon layer....
some East Coast sand I brought home from Florida,
a little bit of Seth Apter's Baked Textures,
and Bon Bon and Night Sky Glimmer Glam.
I dropped the colors onto the canvas with a pipette
and moved with various Glimmer Mists.

My sister captured this precious moment of
my FAVORITE niece and I
at my Grandson party.

I knew I wanted to preserve it on canvas
and it just went WONDERFULLY with the canvas.

I cut out our images and adhered them on
a piece of manhandled burlap.

I colored the flowers using various layers of the
Night Sky and Bon Bon Glimmer Glam.
For the leaves I painted on a layer of Night Sky,
when dry I added another layer of Lime Cordial Glam.

I tied a piece of jute around the canvas.

I dug out some of my cardboard letters
and spritzed them with Bronze Glimmer Mist.

This is.......Us!
I hope you enjoyed my creative journey.....
I know it was good for my soul!

Pantone Color of the Year ~ Ultra Violet

Welcome to the Pantone Color of the year ~ Ultra Violet challenge.
I have to say....violet or purple is not my favorite color to work with!
So, I decided to just jump in with both feet......
I pulled out a piece of Canvas Corp ~TissueStock
several stencils and a couple of colors of Violet
and a few tubs of The Crafter's Workshop ~ Modeling Paste
and began layering the colors.

As I said previously, I REALLY struggled with the purple.
So, to help tone it down a bit,
 I pulled out a bit of Tattered Angels ~ Glimmer Glam ~ Bon Bon
and dropped color onto my "made paper".

....even with all the layers, the TissueStock was still a bit flimsy
so I decided to adhered it to a piece of vintage sheet music.

As I was diggin' in my 'Tovers pile,
I found another piece of "made paper" with the same color palette
and a light bulb came on in my head.

I began to tear up my "made paper" and
adhered it to my found 'Tovers "made paper".

But, I still wasn't  TOTALLY happy so
I pulled out a bit of cheese cloth
and applied it to my "paper".

Then, I stenciled on a bit more of the Crafter's Workshop ~ Modeling paste.

...but it still wasn't quite finished yet.
So, I dropped a bit more "violet" onto my paper
and finished it off with some splatters
of The Crafter's Workshop ~ Gesso. I was happy with my "Made Paper".
I cut it up into ATCs and made a few cards.

Here are my finished Ultra Violet cards....

Hope you enjoyed my journey of "Ultra Violet".

I will share with you one of my favorite coloring techniques
that we will us it to alter the large white, fabric mum.

Playing along.....

Hello my friends......
LOVE is in the AIR!!
....and Valentine's Day is right around the corner. 

I had already created some "paper" that
I thought I was going to use for another challenge
but it fit this challenge perfectly!!
I created my "paper" by adhering various papers, fabrics and textures
to a piece of printed paper.

I mixed a bit of Mudd Puddles ~ Sand with a bit of
The Crafter's Workshop ~ White Pearl Modeling Paste.
I applied it to my "paper" through
an UmWowStudio stencil ~ Hexagon Confetti Stencil.

When dry, I applied Tattered Angels ~ Glimmer Glam ~ Bon Bon 
with a pipette, drying between layers, 
until I had achieved my desired look.

I then, cut the paper into mini ATC's.
I found it easier to cut from the backside of my"paper".
I just love how every ATC is so different from another. 

With the leftover "paper" I cut out various sized hearts.

Then, using a pipette filled with
Tattered Angels ~ Glimmer Mist ~ Red Chillies
I dropped the color onto the hearts.

Don't they look AMAZING!!

Here are my finished Valentine Cards.
I used Impression Obsession/Yvonne Blair Designs
Everyday Quotes 2
They were just PERFECT for my cards.

 Hope you enjoyed my
Love filled cards!!

My Metallic Princess

Hi Everybody....
We've made it into the new year....2018
A new year calls for some new product.
....and I got my hands on the
from The Crafter's Workshop.

And off I went, trying out the new product.
I ran it through stencils,
I lathered it on with a palette knife.
I applied it to fabric and paper. 
The only thing I found is it wasn't
fond of having the drying
 process accelerated by using a heat tool
but still faired well!

I applied a bit of Canvas Corp Tissue Stock
to a piece of CC Cardstock ~ Kraft.
Then I began the layering.
And layer I did....7 of them in fact
using TCW stencils, new and old.

I LOVED how this paper felt when I was finished
....almost like leather. Textured leather that is!

Now, what to make with my new paper??!??!
I went digging through my box of naked bases
and found a Chunky ATC.

I painted my wooden ATC with TCW paint.
Can I tell you it was hard to cut this paper
....but I did!

While my block was drying, I went in search of wing material.
I decided on a piece of CC Flute ~ Kraft
and I applied layers of Metallic Modeling paste.
Now, I have no idea what the tool is I used but
I ran it down the grooves of the paper
and let the modeling paste dry.

I then cut up the strip of paper and adhered it to my block.
I pulled out a bag of mixed wood parts
and picked out a few and painted them
with the modeling paste.
(it had great coverage)

I used Sizzix/Tim Holtz Distressed Doily
to cut the Metallic Princess' wings.

I painted a few vintage buttons with
the Modeling Paste and it worked WONDERFULLY,
one coat did the job.

I even pleated the paper and the Modeling Paste didn't crack!

She wouldn't be a princess without a crown.
I pulled out my UmWowStudio ~ Crown Mash,
picked a crown and painted it with more Modeling Paste.

This product gets a two thumbs up from me!

I hope you have enjoyed my creative journey. 
I still have more paper so be watching
to see what else I make.
