I am home

Hello everyone,

welcome to my blogpost. I totally love the Tiny Houses Mash chipboards and couldn't resist using them again... I made three ATC's on Yupo Paper and made the background with alcohol inks.

I have left the chipboard in its natural form as I like how this looked. 

After the alcohol background had dried I applied some gold foiling. I saw Vicki Papaioannou do this on YouTube but I didn't have as many sticky areas on the ATC's... It was also alsmost impossible to photograph.. but what you do is apply foil to areas that have lots of ink. These areas stay very sticky and are a good base for foiling..

I also added one stamp to ground the houses on and some gold coloured washitape. 

You can just see the gold foil in the top left corner... 

I have used these chipboards:

You will find them HERE.

Thank you so much for stopping by today !

Hi UmWowStudio Fans...

Mixed Media Chunky ATC featuring UmWowStudio Chippies

Today, I want to share with you a little creation I whipped up.
I had a few leftover pieces from some "made paper"
I created for another project.

Mixed Media Chunky ATC featuring UmWowStudio Chippies

So, I decided to pull out an unfinished Chunky ATC
and a few naked wood pieces.
Then, I painted them with Color Wash Paint.

When they were dry, I cut the "made paper" to size and 
adhered it to the Chunky ATC with Multi Medium.

I adhered the wood pieces together.

While it was drying I spritzed a flower with Glimmer Mist.
I also pulled out letters to spell "LOVE YOU" using
and spritzed them with Glimmer Mist.

I then pulled out one of the "leaves" from

and painted it with Color Wash.

Oh so lovely

Hello everyone,

For today's project I have made an art journal spread. I kept it simple this time because sometimes less is more and I love how it turned out.

I had one piece of chipboard from the Flourishes Two set left and thought it would be nice to turn it into a swing for this little girl. I didn't alter the chipboard this time but left it natural. I tied some string on either side to represent her swing ropes. 
The background was made with a piece of pattern paper which I found in my stash. I added some acrylic paint around the edges and behind the girl and also some stamping and doodling. The sentiment was actually the name of the pattern paper, it was printed on the bottom edge and I just cut it off because i thought it suited her. 

I have used this set of chipboards:

Find Peace

There is a lot of truth in the above verbage....
Can I say ~ LIFE can be rough!
But when life becomes difficult I find peace in CREATING!

I have acquired a few new supplies and 
immersed myself in trying them out.

I pulled out several of my UmWowStudio Stencils
Wonky Circle
and my new Gel Press
along with some paint.

I created A LOT of prints
which I chose to tear up and apply
randomly to my artboard.

Then I pulled out a jar of Light & Fluffy
and applied it randonly through

When it was dry, I dropped a bit of Orange
 onto my canvas with a pipette.

Spritzed it with a bit of water to help the color move.

When it was dry I applied a layer of
Vintage Distress Medium.

I brayered on a bit of Spun Sugar
onto one of the Circle Salad stamps
and applied it randomly onto my canvas.

I then applied a layer of
White Gesso over the entire canvas.

I then mixed a bit Multi Medium Matte
with a few Prills and applied randomly to the canvas.

I repeated the technique of dropping a bit of
Caspian Sea onto the canvas and spritzing with water.

I chose the UmWowStudio chippie
which I cut in half to go under my flower cluster.
I also cut up UmWowStudio chippie
and added into my flower cluster.

I finished up my canvas with a quote ~ Great Things
which I stamped onto a piece of TissueStock
and applied it to my canvas.

I hope you enjoyed my creative journey....
I know I found a bit of peace in the process.
