MoJo is on Vacation

Hi UmWowStudio fans.....
can I just say....I hate it when my creativity
decides to take a hiatus and I have a deadline!!
What do you do??
As for me...I start scanning challenges and mood boards
once again I landed on
Our Mixed Media Moods

so I just began creating.....
with no plan or any true inspiration.
I did like the transparency ideas
so I decided to begin there.
I pulled out a piece of Tissuestock
and a tub of Modeling Paste

Now, where I went from there is quite the journey.
I cut the Tissuestock into a tag,
painted the back with Glimmer Glam,
adhered another piece of Tissuestock ~ French Script,
then a piece of Kraft Cardstock
I colored things using
Distress Oxides
Glimmer Glam to name a few.
I was kinda getting there but still not really happy...

I thought that if maybe I began working on
the UmWowStudio Butterfly chipboard
Now, the one thing I LOVE about
UmWowStudio Chipboard
is it stands up to most anything you do to it
and still looks FABULOUS.
I painted my Butterfly,
added Glitter Glass,
cut the wings apart.
and spritzed the back with water.
You can actually watch the water
soak into the chipboard,
which allowed me to manipulate the chipboard.
Still not happy, I added more paint.
Now, it was beginning to take shape....
I adhered a piece of branch for the body
....and there it was.

I found a quote, stamped it onto a manila tag
and cut it apart.

It all worked....
though not my finest piece it was a great exploration
of various papers and medium
....and I'm HAPPY.

THANK YOU for stopping by.....

In my UmWowStudio stash I have a bag
of pieces parts from various chippies
I applied the pieces parts to my journal page.

Step One UmWowStudio Chipboard applied to art journal page

wonky circle stencil by UmWowStudio

Step Two apply Light and Fluffy Modeling Paste through Wonky Circle Stencil

When dry I covered the whole page with
clear gesso.

Step Three apply Clear Gesso over entire art journal page

Then, I let the coloring begin.
I spritzed the entire page with mist.
Then, I used a pipette to drop
color onto the page.
Next, I mixed Prills with
a bit of medium and applied randomly
to the page.
Lastly, I splattered on a bit of white gesso.

Step Four applied Tattered Angel Glimmer Glaze and Glam White Gesso Gel Medium and Prills

A little note book.

Hello everyone,

and welcome to my blogpost where I am sharing a little book with you. I have recently rediscovered my love of making little books and I couldn't resist to make one for today's post.

This little book was made out of 1 sheet of 12' x 12' paper and I glued some fabric on the outside to give it even more interest and also keep it together. 

Here's what I did to the chipboard:

I started with 2 layers of gesso. 

Next I heat embossed the pod-bit of the chipboard. 

Next I am used a Pitt Big Brush Marker by Faber Castell to colour the top and the stem. 

I added some white details too. 

And here is the finished booklet:

I used an Um Wow Studio stencil and some modelling paste for the front of the book. When the paste was still wet I added som embossing powder and then heated it... 

I have used this Chipboard:

It is called Poppy Pod Skellie and you will find it HERE

I also used this stencil :

This is called Wheat Stencil and you will find it HERE

Thank you for stopping by today !
