So I have some exciting news that I have been sitting on and I am finally able to share it with you today- yippee!! I am now a proud member of the design team over at Creative Artiste! I am SO thrilled to have been invited to join the incredibly talented ladies on the team and hope that I can do this fab challenge blog justice with my projects and inspire you to join in with your own mixed media projects.
So, without further ado, here is my debut piece for the June challenge #27.
This month the challenge is kindly sponsored by Judy McKay, who is offering this great prize of stamps and dies, which is also the theme for the challenge this time.
I have used stamps and dies from the new Alchemy collection by Sheena Douglass. I fell in love with them the moment that I saw them and just had to treat myself. My 11yr old daughter loves Harry Potter and wants her bedroom decorated in a magical style, so I have created a canvas for her wall.
I used texture paste and a dragon and stars stencils on my prepared canvas to add some dimension, and then sponged a variety of dark and metallic paints over the top of the whole thing until I had a good coverage. Then I highlighted the pasted areas with gilding polish. The different elements were die cut and stamped, and coloured with dylusions inks ,aqua tint inks, distress oxides and distress pens- so a right mix! Some acetate added a real glass touch to the magnifying glass, and I clear embossed over the bottles to create the same effect on them.
I hope you've enjoyed looking at my work and I have inspired you to join in the challenge.
Thanks for popping by
