Be gentle with yourself

Hello everyone,

It is time for another post from me today ! I really enjoy doing these projects as they are so different from anything else I do. Today I did a little tiny canvas. It is only about 3" x 3" or 10 cm x 10 cm. And here it is :

And here's how I made it:

I decided to heat emboss my flourish with copper embossing powder. I did change my mind in the end and heat embossed over the top with gold powder. 

I embossed it about three times, so the layer of embossing on the flourish was really thick. I reheated it to make it soft again and then dropped some micro beads in the wet/soft embossing. 

This is how it looks after I dropped the microbeads in. Cool huh ? I also added some gold paint here and there later but didn't take pictures. You can see the effect in the finished canvas. 

For the canvas I applied crackle paste and coloured it with light yellow and burnt umber paints.. using some glazing fluid so it stayed wet longer and I could wipe most of it off again..

This is the result of both paints. I then added some stamping. You can see it in the end photos. 
All stamps I used are by VivaLasVegaStamps! 

Here are a few close ups of the flourish..

Apart from the canvas and the flourish, I used an original old photo which I found in an antique market. I am always on the lookout for stuff like this. I also used some music paper and some lace. The frame is from a cheap set of resin frames from the Dollar store which I painted and then used the same gold embossing powder over the top. 

I used this chipboard today :
From the set Flourishes Two

Thank you so much for stopping by today !

Tis the make BagTags!

Hi UmWowStudio Fans....
Wanted to share with you my "BagTags"
that I created for "the girls" Christmas presents.

I chose to go with a less than traditional "christmas" look

I chose the following papers......

Once the papers were cut into tags,
I used UmWowStudio's Stencils
and applied various texture mediums.

The two constants on my tags are....
I covered the chosen Chevron with
Vintage Photo Distress Ink
and applied
Stampendous ~ Shabby Pink Embossing Enamel
what a STUNNING look!

And diecut Ivy Leaves
cut from CCB ~ Handmade Paper Ivory
colored with Glimmer Glam and Glimmer Mist.

I JUST LOVE how the "Bag Tags" came out....

I hope you have enjoyed my creative journey
as much as I will giving these BEAUTIFUL gifts!!

Let's get lost

Hello everyone, 

and welcome to my blogpost. I had fun making this little wall hanging. 

I used the "Layered Chevrons" for this but I used them un-layered and grouped them in the middle of my panel. 

Here are a few close ups...

Apart from the Chipboards, I used some paper flowers, modelling paste, scraps of fabric, brads, micro beads and rubber stamps by VivaLasVegaStamps! 

The lace bow was added as an afterthought, but I think it looks nice. 

Here is a close up of the chipboards I have used. How I got them to look like this ? Click on the link to YouTube underneath and I will show you ! 

I did add some stamping after I adhered them onto my panel. I didn't film this. 

And here is is again, I like how it turned out. 

I have used :

Layered Chevrons

I hope you enjoyed your visit today ! 

Until next time !
