Bizzy Becs January Challenge - Anything Goes

Happy Monday All,

I hope you all had a great Australia Day!! 

Today I have my project that I created for Bizzy Becs January "Anything Goes" Challenge to share with you. This month I decided on a Prima Doll Tag.

You can see the full details here,

For the base of the tag I have used Celebrations Cardstock, then layered it with Bazzill, I have distressed all the edges and then inked them with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink.  The patterned papers are from Kaisers Key To My Heart Collection.  The Prima Doll stamp is by Julie Nutting and I have paper pieced her also in Key To My Heart Papers. The gorgeous white trim is Green Tara.  The flowers are Prima and Green Tara.  The Trinkets are Bo Bunny and Prima. The ribbon is Vandoros and lastly the bling on the ribbon is from my stash.

Have a great day,

Anna's Craft Cupboard January Sketch Challenge.

Hi there,

Today I have my entry for Anna's Craft Cupboard January Sketch Challenge to share with you.
This month I decided on a 12 x 12 Canvas for the challenge, having lots of fun playing with Mixed Media.

As I mentioned above my base is a Mont Marte 12 x 12 Canvas.  To create my background for the canvas I first applies Tim Holtz Tissue Paper rouglhy with Modge Podge, once dry painted a layer of Gesso.  I then used a couple of different coloured Gelatos and blended them together.  I then randomly stamped one of Kaiser's texture stamps over the canvas with Black Archival. I have first painted the Twiddleybitz Circle Overlay Large OV002 and Butterfly Multi 7 Pack BUT007 with a Purple Twilight Paint Dabber and then once dry gone over it with a Spun Sugar Distress Paint.  The flowers are Prima and Green Tara.  The fairy resin is Prima.  I have used American Crafts foam Thickers for the title.  The Love Heart Doily is from my stash and lastly the small rhinestone flourishes are from Prima.

Thanks for stopping by,

White With One ....Tangerine.

Hi there,

just popping in quickly today to share with you my canvas that I have made for WW1's new challenge for January, this month the plus one colour is Tangerine.  I must say I am really enjoying these challenges.

You can see all the details here,

The Canvas isMont Marte.  I have used the Tim Holtz Tissue paper which I have torn up and randomly stuck with Modge Podge over my Canvas.  I then applied Orange Gelato's over my Canvas and used my finger and some water to blend them out.  I then used a Kaiser Circle Template and again randomly placed it over the Canvas and painted on Texture Paste.  The gorgeous Die Cut circles around the photos and at each end of the canvas are Manor House.  The flowers are Manor House, Green Tara and Prima.  The Twiddleybitz Long Flourish No Tail FLOR022 and Circle Doily FRA018 have both been coloured with an orange Gelato.  The Twiddleybitz Memories Word Single WOR037A has been painted with white paint. And lastly I have painted some gesso on the sides of my Canvas and again blended it in using my finger.

Well that's it for me, I'm off for a dip in the pool to stay cool, thanks for stopping by.
