A gentle heart

Hello everyone, 

and welcome to today's Creative Team post. 

I have been playing with some more muted colours in the last few days. Maybe because I am sad that summer is over? Who knows. What I do know is that I thoroughly enjoyed my experimenting. 
This art journal spread is an example of this experiment. 

The base of this journal spread is a piece of Pattern paper from the Nature Walk series designed by DeeDee Catron. She is so very talented ! 

Here's how I did it:

I cut the 12 x 12 to size (I actually changed this later as I cut off the white from the left page. Later I decided I wanted the pattern of the splatters to continue... 

Next I used some modelling paste through a piece of punchinelle (sequin waste) and dried it gently with my heat gun.. 

Next I thought it would be fun to use some gilding flakes. I usually avoid using them at all cost as they go everywhere... lol 
I think the result was worth it though. I also inked the edges of the pages.

How fab is that ?

Another look...

Next I used some black embossing glitter to colour and coat the heart. It is not really a glitter, more a glint... 

After did all that, I started stamping the background, of course I forgot to take more photos... All stamps I used are by VivaLasVegaStamps! (What else?) and I used different colours of Archival ink. The sentiment was stamped on the page directly but I messed up so I stamped it again on a piece of the same paper but turned around; I inked the edges and added some brads and then added it on top of the one I messed up. The flowers in the heart were a piece of ribbon that I was given. It was pink and I coloured it with inks to match the rest of the page. 
I glued the pages in my journal and that was that ! I really like how it came out.  

I used only one chipboard today:

Scribble Heart and you'll find it HERE

Thank you so much for stopping by today !

A creative Bunny Trail by LynneF

Hi UmWowStudio Fans.....

I LOVE creative bunny trails.

You know...
when you have a creation in mind
and you get to a certain point and you say....
and head in a totally different direction!!?!?

I did JUST THAT with this project..... all began with me pulling out my box of
UmWowStudio chippies!!

There were a bunch of odds and ends that had escaped
from their packaging, in the bottom of my box,
so, I pulled out a black cardboard box from my stash...
and adhered the pieces parts to the lid with
Multi Medium ~ Matte.

Let's see.....I used.....
Puzzle Mash
Star Confetti
Gear Mash
Sketchy Hearts Mash
Floral Collection
pieces from Grid Border
Home Grown Mash
(I think that covers them all!!)

....this is where the WHAT IF moment happened.
I thought....what if I used my newly adorned lid as a stamp??
So.....I pulled out some paint, a brayer and a piece of cardstock
and let the stamping begin!!

.....and then the bunny trail ensued!
I spritzed a bit of Glimmer Mist
lathered on some gesso, spritzed more Glimmer Mist
and added a bit more paint....

Then I thought.....what a GREAT card
the "new paper" would make!!!
So, I went back to my UmWowStudio box
and pulled out my Wonky Circle Stencil
and applied some Polishing Plaster through it!

When my card was dry....I spritzed it with
MORE Glimmer Mist and
smeared on Aged Copper paint with a palette knife.

When it was dry, I traced around a few of
Then, with a paint brush, I applied a bit
of Multi Medium ~ Matte
and added a few Micro Beads.

Here is my finished card.....

To finish off my card, I painted
the "verbage" Heart from the
and a Heart from

Now, BACK to the original project....
(sorry.....I neglected to take photos of this process!)

I lathered on a layer of White Crackle Paint...
when dry I spritzed the lid with
various Glimmer Mists
until I achieved my desired look.

I used the remaining "new paper" to cover my lid and box.

And finished it off with a Garden Rosette, colored to match,
along with a leaf from the
Home Grown Mash collection
and a bit of vintage lace.

PHEW.....what a GREAT Bunny Trail that was!!!

Hope you enjoyed it at much as I did and
that you end up on a creative Bunny Tail too!!
