Playing around with mixed media..

Hope today finds you well.
Here is another page I did while I was away.... exploring and finding out what works and doesn't with mixed media.

I really recommend just doing this cause you learn so so much. Don't be scared for if it didn't work the way you wanted then you will know next time what you liked or what you would change.

I have used a napkin, daubers, spritz spray (clear snaps), aqua water crayons, modge podge, 2 crafty, a2z and tiddlebitz chipboard.

How did i do it?....
  • I rubbed different colour crayons onto my stamp, spritzed with water and stamped half off the page in a few sections.
  • On the sideof my page .....  i inked my chipboard shapes using the sprays, daubers and inks.
  • The raw chipboard i adhered onto my page first
  • Then placed all over my page some modge podge
  • Finding my serviette i separated the 3 ply into a 2 ply. 
  • I then adhered over the raw chipboard and page and made as many wrinkles out of the serviette that i could by drawing the paper in to make the wrinkles.
  • I then found my second layer which was the coloured part wasn't sicking so i took it off to find that the centre part had stuck down where i had more modge podge than anywhere else and thought why not add this into the feature leaving the background white.
  • When dry I used my daubers and inked in the centre
  • Then adhered the chipboard shapes wherever I desired. 
 There really isn't a wrong or right just have fun and PLAY!

happy creating and thanks for reading

Where Have I BEEN!........

Hello to my regular readers....

I hear you all asking where have i been and when is my blog going to be updated??????

Since Closing my REAL Shop at wollongbar, life became busier than ever with both kiddies starting new schools and settling in. To top it off both are doing more after school activities than ever just to keep me on my toes...lol! the main thing is they are healthy and doing extreamly well at school.

On another note I haven't been very well at all for quite a while and needed some time out. I have scrapbooked a fair bit for Bella if you want to check out their blog you will see my kiddies in ones I have done.

So my focus other than trying to get better has been to have some time out and lots of family time.  I have managed to visit our friends at Urbanville. Which my hubby and kids  enjoyed the car rally. A part I love about this beautiful country where there is nothing to do but enjoy the mountains, creeks, and clean air.
 The kids made a raft, can you beleive they had an axe and cut their own logs to make this!.... well it only just floated with only one on at a time....

I managed to go away for a weekend with a couple of girls at Woody Heads with no kids or hubby. Now this is when my inspiration started to flow again that I  so badly want  to do more now. With no one to say 'hey mum' for a whole weekend!...lol. Can you imagine the uninterupted bliss sitting on these rocks watching the waves crashing as you draw whatever comes to mind!.... sounds bliss hey!. I just wish it could happen more often.

Our family often take little day outings and we ventured up the gold coast for some shopping and stopping in at Coolangata for our traditional family coffee/icecream and a play and sit on the beach.

All this amazing family time and timeout has lead me to book into Louise Nelson's class and Jane Clark's Class for the Papercraft expo in Brisbane on the 11 June and SOOOO can't wait and hope many of you are able to make a fantastic event.  I know I sure can't wait to see my good friends again and meet some new ones too!


I will leave you with one of my inspirations I had completed while I was at Woody Heads. I so badly wanted to start an art journal but mainly just to play with products and see what I come up with. I have others but can't give it all away at once..hehe...I will share the others soon

  • Now are you wondering how i did this???
  • Do you have any stencils of butterflies??? if not don't worry, Why not draw and cut out one or even punch one out and use the negitive part as a stencil!...
  • All I have done is used some Distress Inks and overlapped the colours.
  • Inked some grass, this can be a stencil or cut out your own!
  • Using the spriz sprays and some extra spray of water. I sprayed and allowed drops of colour to run down my page....
  • I would recomend giving this a try just for fun and see what you are able to come up with!

enjoy creating and stay well!
Luv Tanxx
