You and Me with Rhonda

Thursday greetings to you and welcome to the blog, it's Rhonda here to host today!

I decided to create a mixed media card for my project today using a mask, a chipboard tag and some flair.  I've also added in other elements like cheesecloth and hemp for texture and interest.

I started by using the Damask mask with some glass bead gel, then I sprinkled a few different mists and let them pool and run together a bit.

There is a chipboard tag from the soar collection on the right, it's been base coated with gesso, then pearlescent pens rubbed on it to create a variegated effect.

I just love our beautiful Flair and used the "You & Me" from The 2 of Us collection as a sentiment for my card.

The biggest pumpkin ever

Good morning Friends, Brianna here to bring you some festive joy! With three little ones in the house, this time of year is all about fall festivities; pumpkin patches, costume picking, and of course decorating. Every year we get a pumpkin , and last year we found the biggest pumpkin ever!
I chose to highlight this fun find by a starburst shape filled with some of my favorite UWS Confetti. Keeping all in each section, I filled one strip with The Sequin Confetti. My normal urge is to scatter these about my page, but I love them all bunched together like so. I used another strip to place my Arrow Confetti of various sizes as a leading line to my photo.
I chose to keep this layout paint fee, as the papers themselves were already busy enough. I finished it off with a perfectly placed arrow to my photo cluster. I loved how amazingly the confetti looked bunched together! I hope this helped put you in the festive mood as well as it did for me!

One Summers Day!

Hello there bloggers!
Geraldine here today to share a summer layout of my son Tarquinn.
It's rare for me to do boys layouts plus one with flowers and get away with it, but having the UmWowStudio Nautical chipboard elements on the page meant I was given a certain thumbs up sign of appreciation from a 12 year old.
'One Summers Day'
I live in what is well known as 'The Sunburnt Country' - Australia, and although we are in the season of Spring the temperature over this weekend is a warm 30 Degrees......Yes Summer is fast approaching and I love creating vibrant, fun and Nautical projects for the season.

Halloween Wood Panels with Safari animals

Hello and Happy Friday!

Tina here today with a fun Halloween project!

Halloween is my favorite holiday and I ALWAYS love creating projects for it!  I love the colors, the themes, and fall in general.  I had been racking my brain for a way to use the adorable animal chipboard pieces, when it hit me!  Why not create a whimsical Halloween project, embellishing them for the season.

To begin, I built texture on a wood panel, using the Hexagon Confetti mask and embossing paste.  I added several shades of Shimmerz sprays, letting them pool around the embossed areas.

To create my fun little animal chipboards, I added several shades of Distress paints and Shimmerz paints for color.  Once they were dry, I added a layer of crackle paint.  To add more vintage goodness, I added Distress stain to each piece, letting the stain seep into the cracks.

Animal Chips used:

I added more chipboard pieces and paper embellishments to each panel to complete my mini Halloween scene.

Chips used:
Grid Border
Layered Pumpkins

I would LOVE to see what you create with the fun and whimsical animal chipboard pieces!  Please share them with us!

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Hello Dear One

Hello everyone!

Miae here to share with you my latest layout using many UmWowStudio goodies! I wanted to create a page with a warm, sweet feeling to suit these recent photos of my little one. 

I started with the Light Bulb Mask which I find so unique and cool! I outlined the bulb with a pen and for the rays I mixed a paste of heavy gloss gel and loose glitter. From there I felt "throwing" stars across the page would be right so I took the Star Confetti Mask and same gold glittery paste across the page. Now, what I just adore is how the From The Heart Flair (actually any of the UmWowStudio flair) fits so perfectly in the bulb!

To go with the warmth of the page, I decided to leave the Grid Border chipboard raw. It worked perfectly as a lattice for a rose vine! 

The Heart Stings chipboard is altered with Rub 'n Buff in Gold Leaf and Distress Paint. It's a lovely, unique chipboard (and versatile too!).

Hope you enjoyed perusing this page and get some inspiration out of it!

Feeling Blue Journal Page with Jen

I have an art journal page to share with you today!  I used lots of Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft mediums and Gelatos® colors along with a few of the adorable Layered Chipboard clouds.  Unfortunately, I was so into making this page, I forgot to take too many in progress photos! 
P1010830I started with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Whipped Spackle and used a palette knife from our Gelatos Tool Set to smear some around to create "clouds".  It keeps it's shape and won't flatten down after drying.  I also love the resist that it gives to wet media.
When that was dry, I added Gelatos® colors in Blueberry, Metallic Blueberry , Bosenberry and  Double Scoop® Snow Cone to the page. I had made a Gelatos® mist with the Metallic Blueberry and Bosenberry to create a shimmer and an even application.
P1020400The other colors were added to the top of the page and water was added with a brush to allow drippage (my favorite technique)! I love how the Whipped Spackle allows the color to puddle and change over it.  When that was dry, I added stamped letters using a Stamper's Big Brush Pen in Cool Grey
P1020402 Finally, I added the UmWowStudio layered chipboard clouds and filled or covered them with the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Glass Bead Glitter Gel.  It gives them the right amount of sparkle and shine!  When dry, it allows the color underneath to show through too!  I love these layered chipboard pieces with their open spaces to fill with fun mediums!
The quote I used for this page was one from a 7 year old!  I found it online and it was perfect for this page! That 7 year old was so wise.  It says:
"If you are feeling blue,
try painting yourself a different color!"
I love that I can use ALL of my Gelatos® colors any time I want!!!  It just depends on my mood! 
What color are you feeling lately?
