I have prepared a tag about Paris, the city I have wanted to visit ever since.

It isn't perfect but I find it quite interesting.

Let's fake it!


Hi! Today we start a new challenge at Stamps and Stencils.
This time our host is Toni and she has chosen the theme: Let's fake it! for us.
 She'd like to see your projects that include at least one faux finish of our choice.
Produce anything you like but please include some stamping or stencilling or both and join us in the fun!
Pop over to the main blog and get inspired by my wonderful teamies.

I have prepared a ,,metal'' tag full of gears, cogs and screws.
As you can see almost every part of the  tag is a chipboard.


 I started with stenciling some heavy body structure paste to the tag.


Next step was covering all with black gesso.


Some parts were stamped and embossed with copper metallic powder.


Others  covered with rust effect agent set.


The background  was painted  with camouflage paint set.


Starting to put everything together.


I wanted more rust  so I rubbed some Inka Gold metal gloss paint  on some surface. 


 And added some patina effect paste too.



Hope you like it!

Maritime



We start a new challenge today at Try it on Tuesday and the theme is:

Stencils / Die Cuts  or Both

                                  Pop this on your blog to find us fast!


What materials, style and mediums etc... that you use, is as always entirely up to yourselves.
Have fun, we are looking forward to seeing how you interpret this theme .

My take on the theme  is a maritime tag.
I made my own background with acrylic paints, then added some stenciled structure paste and some stamping. 

    

To embellish my tag I used an anchor die cut and the fish were  cut from a very nice tea packaging ( you know- I love to recycle things).
Hope you like it!

In the Meadow



Our new challenge over at Stamps and Stencils for the next month is hosted by Rachel. 
She wants to see your interpretation of the theme In the Meadow which could involve lots of grasses, wildlife or whatever you think.
Just make sure you use stamps, stencils or both in your make! 
The design team have created some amazing inspirational projects, so please pop over and take a look.
I hope you will join us as I’m looking forward to seeing all of your creations!

My take on the theme is a  page in an old book I use for an art journal.
I made some masterboard earlier and a piece of it served as my background.
I was inspired by the look of a meadow in a hot, summer day.



That's why I first  made the shadows of the plants with black gesso and the stencil.


The shadows were outlined with white gelly roll pen.


The ,,proper" flowers were stenciled, fussy cut and glued to the background.
I outlined them too.
I attached the base to my page and finished it off by adding some stamping and some stickers.

My take on the theme is an altered doll.
Please meet Dorothy straight from The Wizard of Oz.






Dorothy is 11 cm tall and was made from a broken dolly, a small tin  and lots of  trash and oddments from my stash.


I  have used gel heavy body matt to put all the pieces together.



You can open the small tin and see  Dorothy's inside.





I decided to give her  two queer legs.




Hope you like her as much as I do....

Mums the Word



Today is the start of another new challenge at Try it on Tuesday  so I hope you will join us there for a 'Mums the Word Challenge'.
First thing to do is to visit TIOT to see what the rest of the team have made and also to check on our rules to be sure you are following them.

My take on the theme is a card I made for my Mum. 
Let's hope she will enjoy it ;))
As usual you can follow some of my stages in the process:


I started with making backgrounds from some scraps I have die cut from some rests of paper.

Next I've given it a good wash of heavy gesso.


Then I put some platinum crackle texture paste, when it was dry it was distressed  with brown ink.


I stamped the background with a crackle stamp, then I started to built the focal point.

To finish my card off I added some flowers, leaves, some moss, die cuts and metal embellishments.
I also added some colour with Dylusions paints.

I am also linking my card to:
mix it up: make your own background
vintage journey: treasure - lots of treasured things used here beginning from a resin frame, a metal bow, old turquoise earrings, some moss picked up in the forest and dried etc..

Wax Lyrical


Hi! It is March 1 today so we start a new challenge over at Stamps and Stencils.
Sue is our host for this month and she has chosen the theme:
WAX LYRICAL.
For this challenge she wants to see some wax on your projects, whether it's just dribbled, melted and then stamped into or a wax embellishment as long as you include some stamping or stencilling the choice is yours ! 

I have to make a confession. I didn't have any idea for my piece at all.
Suddenly I remembered the old play-reading liquid wax to tell smb future.
I didn't hesitate at all and melted a candle. Then I just poured the liquid to the cold water in a bowl. You can see the result here:




I thought it looked like a flower so I decided to give it a go.


 The flower was painted with black and old gold acrylic paints and partly covered with glitter. 



I decided to place it on a tag from craft paper, earlier stenciled with gold paint.


More stenciling with brown Distress ink.


I also added some text stamping and finished the tag off with some black, textil stickers.

Coffee




Hello Everyone,

Today, I am super excited to be Guest Designer at Inkspirational Challenge Blog.

This time they have beautiful photo to inspire your creativity.





As a coffee lover I was more than happy to make a tag reflecting the picture.
The background is made of acrylic paints put through the stencil.
Next I collaged some images and metal parts.


Pls visit the main blog for amazing projects by Design Team and more details about  the challenge.

I 'm also linking this to Tag Tuesday where the theme is 'Use a quote'.
Although I' m not sure if the saying can be called a quote :)
