No place like home

Hello everyone,

For my post today I made a mini Art Journal page.

 I kept it really simple this time. I stamped the background and then heat embossed it with two layers of Seth Apther's Baked Texture "Vintage Beeswax". Next I embossed the edges of the page with "Ancient Amber". I didn't do much to the Tiny Houses chipboards, just wiped them over a brown Archival ink pad. The line of music paper and the sentiment were also heat embossed with the Vintage Beeswax powder. 

A close up. 

Doesn't it look yummy ! 

I have used the Tiny Houses Mash Chipboards and you'll find them HERE

Thank you so much for stopping by today !

A wallhanging ...

Hello everyone,

I am sharing a wallhanging today. It was also an experiment with embossing powders which didn't quite go to plan, oh well..

And here's what I did to the chipboard.. 

I glued the star chipboard on some book paper..

I tore off the excess... 

I then thought to fill it with UTEE but see what happened:

I decided to go with it anyway and added a layer of the new Emerald Creek/Seth Apter embossing powders of the top. I used Dirty Sand. 

Sorry for the blurred photo, my camera obviously focussed on the pot of embossing powder.. 

I actually think that looks really cool ! 

So here is the finished project. The base is grey board of which I painted the edges with black gesso. The top layer is a piece of a box. I tore off the top layer of paper here and there to expose the ridges. 
I added the model paste through the UmWow Dahlia stencil, then added a layer gesso over the top.
I used Lindy's Sprays to colour the paper. 

I think it turned out nice, even if I did have trouble with the UTEE.. 

I have used the Dahlia Stencil --> HERE

and the Sketchy Star --> HERE

Thank you for stopping by today !

Mishap Tags by Lynne Forsythe

Hi UmWowStudio Fans.....
Hope all is Well in your part of the world.

I'm stoppin' by to share with you
two tags that were birthed out of a horrible Mishap.

Here is a quick video of my MISHAP! 

....and these are the tags I made from my mishap.

See how I created my inchies HERE.

I needed to accent my flowers with a few leaves so 
I chose one of my UmWowStudio Signature Series Chippies
I wanted to follow along on the same "Mishap idea" with my chippie.
  • I painted the front of the chippie with Lime Cordial. Let it dry.
  • Painted on Vanilla Milk Shake. Let it dry.
  • Flipped the chippie over and spritz with water.
  • When absorbed, bend the leaves as you wish. Let it dry
  • Paint with Lime Cordial. 
  • Cut apart as needed 

Do you see the UmWowStudio Damask Stencil in the background?

What do you do with your Mishaps??
Thanks BUNCHES for stopping by.

Hello everyone,

and welcome to my post for today ! I have made a tag :

I used the 'Wooden Sign' Chipboard

and also one of the 'Layered Clouds'

This is what I did to the 'Wooden Sign': (unfortunately I forgot to take photos what I did to the cloud, it was an afterthought,  I applied 2 layers of embossing powder).

This is what it looks like in its natural form.. 

I started with 2 layers of white gesso. 

I added colour with my Big Brush Markers by Faber Castell. 

This is what it looked like when I finished. 

Next I stamped it with the words: "she was" and "mysterious". 

Here's the cloud I heat embossed it with a coat of dark blue embossing powder first and then went over the top with a light blue with gold flecks in it. I like that you still can see the dark blue here and there. 

A close up. All stamps I used are by VivaLasVegaStamps! The background was painted with PaperArtsy Acrylic paints. 

And here she is again ! 

Thank you so much for stopping by today !

She made room.....tag

Howdy UmWowStudio Fans.....

I had a snow day
and I created up a storm.
Had to trudge through the snow
the next morning to get to my photo area!

I pulled out a tag and
mixed a bit of paint and modeling paste together
and applied it through 

When dry, I spritz with mist and then dropped Glam onto my tag
with a pippette. I gently spritzed my tag with water and let it dry.

I applied a bit of Multi Medium Matte to my tag
with a paint brush and then I sprinkled on a bit of Prills.

I then dry brushed on a bit of white gesso.

with Modeling Paste.
When dry I dropped Glam on the Small Ivy,
spritzed with a bit of water and dried it.
You can see my technique HERE!

I cut apart my UmWowStudio ~ Small Ivy into 3 pieces.
I cut up a piece of wire mesh and stapled it to my tag.

I pulled out a bunch of Mist and colored a few white flowers!!

Every tag needs a quote!
