Camp Scrap Week 2

Hi everyone,

Here is my project for week 2 at Camp Scrap 2014

I did up another canvas and used the Lawn Fawn stamps and altered them.  I stamped them on patterned paper and then when over them with Gesso and walnut stain distress ink.  I used acrylic paint and a Tim Holtz stencil.  I altered some wood venires and stamped the sentiment in Hero Arts black ink.

Thanks for stopping by.

Lawnscaping Challenge #86 - Watercolouring

Hello everyone,

I haven't been posting much these days.  Summer Life is well underway and we are trying to get in as much as we can as the new school year is fast approaching.  

Today I'm joining the Lawnscaping Challenge "Watercolouring"

For my card I used the Stitched Journaling die set and I used Crushed Olive,  Walnut Stain, Dusty Concord, Vintage Velvet, Weathered Wood and Tumbled Glass distress markers.

The Cat is from Critters in the 'Burbs and I had coloured it a while back with my copics and decided that it would fit on this card.

Critters in the 'Burbs (LF - SSS)
Home Sweet Home (LF - SSS)
Recollections Kraft Cardstock

This is the card my daughter did up for the challenge.  I love what she came up for the sentiment.

Camp Scrap 2014 Workshop Winner! That would be me!

Hello everyone!

I'm back with a long overdue post.  A few weeks ago SSS had a chance to win Twitter, all 4 Classes offered in the Camp Scrap 2014 workshop by the talented May Flaum.  So I "Tweeted for a chance to win" and guess what?????  I won!  A BIG THANKS to Simon Says Stamp!

I have to admit that I wasn't sure about the class as I had never even attempted mixed media and wasn't sure if it was something I was going to enjoy.  Well let me tell you...I am having a wonderful and fun time exploring this new medium.  It's allowing me to just "go with it".

May is so talented and has such creativity that it's making me "let loose" with my creativity and I think this is something that I will keep doing even after class.

Click on the blog candy below for the giveaway post (this is the only one I could find but it's not the one I won on)

Click the link below to see what is happening in Camp!  It's worth it.  You don't have to purchase all four classes but they are ALL very interesting. 

Now for my Week 1 project.  This is my VERY first mixed media project!

Acrylic paint (Michaels Craftsmart brand)
Embellishements (from numerous SSS CKOM)
Lawn Fawn Into the woods sequins
Tim Holtz stencil (Michaels)
5x7 canvas (Michaels)

I had to get supplies quickly as I found out that I won on the day the camp started.

I will see you again soon!
Thanks for stopping by.

SSS Wednesday Challenge - "Let's be Clear"

Hello everyone!

I am playing along withe the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge "Let's be Clear".  They are featuring Clearly Besotted Stamps and you have to use something clear on your card.

Today I used a few things and the first is clear stamps.  I used the Lawn Fawn Critters in the Sea and I used the whale.  For the background I used stencils that I cut out with my Silhouette and used Peacock Feathers and Black Soot distress inks.  I coloured in the whale with my copics and used my white gel pen to add in the dots.  

 My clear part for this challenge is the liquid glass (CTMH) to cove the water spray on the top of the whale's head and clear Wink of Stella glitter pen on the waves in the background.

I stamped the sentiment in Versa Fine Onyx black ink, which is my favourite for sentiments.

I used Recollections 110# card stock for the whale, waves and the background.
