Hamsa Hand and Sun Tags for The Artistic Stamper Creative Team Blogspot - January 2017 Challenge

It looks like my creative muse is on a roll because I have created two new tags and I'm submitting them to the The Artistic Stamper Creative Team Blogspot Monthly Challenge - Anything Goes.

The 6.25" x 3" tag has been painted with Dylusion paint, then sprayed with Lindy's Stamp Gang glitter mist using a stencil. Using the same stencil, I used Viva Decor modeling paste off-setting it just a bit to give it dimension. The stamped reads: "What appears to be the end is usually the start of a new beginning." The Hamsa hand on the lower right side is a clay embellishment.

The 5.25" x 2" tag was painted with Dylusion paint, Viva Decor modeling paste was used on a small circle stencil and purple paint was used on an arrow stencil. The ticket stamp on the left side was stamped with maroon ink and the sun stamp at the bottom right was stamped with black ink.

Thank you for stopping by!

Catrina and Tombstone

As I was rearranging my craft room, I found a project that I had created a while back but had been lost in the "pending projects" stack.

I'm glad that I had forgotten it because I'm able to enter it in the Scrapyland Challenge #57 - Anything Goes.

The tombstone is a 6" x 3.5" wood shaped that has been painted with black and purple paints, has a spiderweb stamped around it and also has crackle medium. The low cut die is from Sizzix Thinlits, the Day of the Dead, Catrina. The Catrina has been cut and painted and has tiny metal flowers & glitter decorating it.

I hope you like it and thanks for stopping by!


The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge - Goddess and Sacred Heart Projects

I guess I'm on a roll - YEY! I'm submitting a couple more projects to The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge - Put a Stencil on It            
The long 7" x 2" wooden panel was painted with acrylic paints, the stencil at the top is from The Crafter's Workshop and was added with modeling paste. Before adding the clay embellishments, crackle paste was added to the entire panel, including the sides, then more Inka Gold was rubbed on everything.

The 4" x 4" square was painted with Pebeo Iridescent Red Blue paint, the stencil was added with Pebeo Iridescent Green Yellow paint. Once dry, I added a layer of One Step Crackle Medium. The Sacred Heart is from Prima Marketing. The hand written message reads "Nuestro Amor" which means Our Love.

The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge - Put a Stencil on It and HLS Mixed Media Challenge - Layers

As I was browsing the Internet for some inspiration, I came across a lot of wonderful blogs that offer monthly challenges. I'm so happy I found so many blogs but I'm going to have to remember to pace myself because I haven't created anything for a while.

This project is being submitted to  The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge with their Challenge #32 - Put a Stencil on It.

I was so excited when I read that this month's sponsor is Stencil Girl Products. They are one of my favorite companies for limited edition and unique stencils!

The 5" x 7" canvas panel was created with several layers of inks, acrylic paints, glitter mists, Inka Gold, Golden Glass Bead Gel, clay and of course, two different stencils. The circle image on the right hand side is one of the Stencil Girl stencils and has been added with white acrylic paint then a with a layer of Inka Gold in purple. The stencil at the bottom is from The Crafter's Workshop and was added with modeling paste. The top decoration and the moon are clay embellishments and Golden Glass Bead Gel was added for texture. In order to accentuate the beads, I added a bit of white paint, then another layer of Inka Gold in gold color.

The second blog I'm adding my projects to is Happy Little They offer four different challenges every month but I'm only participating in the Mixed Media - Layers.
