THE JOURNEY





Today, I am sharing another canvas with you.  Still playing with the Lindy's Stamp Gang Sprays.  They are fun and maybe after almost a month I am getting the hang of them.  Actually, they are easy to use.  It has been over a year since I have done any crafting and I am impatient to see the final result.  I just keep telling myself to slow down.

I will be entering this in the  Lindy's April Color Challenge here.

I apologize for the pictures.  My camera or me can't seem to get good pictures.  May have to break down and buy a new one.  All pictures can be enlarged by clicking on them.





These are some metal pieces that I applied paint and Inka Gold to so they would have a patina look.  Took several layers but I am pleased with the final result.



The bicycle chipboard is by Blue Fern Studios.  There were many different products used to achieve the look.  The products included Lindys Sprays, Acrylic paints and Inka GoldAgain many layers.  The hexagons have micro beads and Lindys Spray.

The Lindys Sprays used on this canvas are:

BELIEVE TAG

Good Morning,

Well, after a year away from crafting I am having fun playing with different products.  This week I played with Lindy's Stamp Gang Sprays and experimented with different elements. These included metal pieces, cork, wood veneer, chevron stencil, chipboard, lace, stamps, washi tape and just whatever I felt like adding.  However, I may have gotten carried away with this tag.  It was still lots of fun.  Any of the pictures can be clicked on to enlarge.



This tag is going to be entered into the Lindys Stamp Gang April Color Challenge. The color selections are beautiful for spring. 

There are 5 colors in the challenge, but only a minimum of 2 have to be used.  I used a little of all 5 and added A Bit O'Bubbly for a little sparkle and South Shore Sand.  It is hard to see it in the pictures, but it gave it a really nice effect.  The colors in the challenge are:






The arrow pointing down is a cork sticker.  It was first sprayed with the South Shore Sand and then A Bit O'Bubbly was added for sparkle. The chevron is a stencil.


The leaves and the flower are metal pieces.  For the flower I used Magnolia Magenta Gold and Pink Ladies Pink. The leaves were sprayed with Grease Lightin' Green and highlighted with Summer Lovin' Sun and again a A Bit of O'Bubbly.



The chipboard leaves were sprayed with Grease Lightin' Green and highlighted with Summer Lovin' Sun and A Bit of O'Bubbly.

Hope you enjoyed this little tag and please stop by again.

Have a wonderful day,

BE COURAGEOUS - BE KIND

WOW, I can't believe it has been over a year since I have crafted and created anything. Looks like I need to update my blog templates also.

I have lots of the Lindy's Stamps Gang Sprays and decided to use them for the Color Challenge this month.  

This canvas has lots of layers and along the way I made several mistakes.  The great thing about mixed media - that's okay.  It was fun.  Sorry the pictures are not as clear as I would like.  It seems I have even forgotten how to take good pictures.  The pictures can be enlarged by clicking on them.



The little 4 x 4 canvas in the center is an Indigo Blue Stamp with several sprays.

Every color in the challenge for this month was used.  Some of the colors I blended and love the results. 


I used Magnolia Magenta Gold on this flower and the gold from the spray gives it a really nice shine, even though the pic doesn't quiet reveal it.

The color challenge for this month is below:

Hopefully, I will get my mojo back and have the time to start crafting again.  I soooooo missed it and love it.

Have a Wonderful Day,

HAPPY HOLIDAYS


Hi Everyone,

The holiday seasons are upon us.  This is my favorite time of the year.  I love the lights, family, and celebrating the birth of Christ and seeing all the kids faces so happy and shining on Christmas morning.

To help ring in the holidays I made a simple card to share with you.  The image is a digi from Carmen Medlin Digitals for SCACD - Christmas Owl  Since the papers are so busy I kept it simple and just used papers, punch, and rhinestones.  The image is colored with Prismacolor Pencils and highlighted with Stickles and Gloss. 

Thank you for stopping by.  I value all of my followers and comments and also value your work as well.

Have a wonderful day and a fun week !!
