Hi there everyone!!! Today I am sharing my take on the Lindy’s Stamp Gang June 2019 Challenge. This is my first time doing their challenge and I loved every minute creating my mini disc. I just adore this colour combo! If you would like to join in this month, click here to go to their blog.
For my background, I applied some TCW9001 white gesso to a chipboard disc along with some stamping, I used a Tim Holtz stamp and stencil set with black Versafine. I then added some crackle medium through TCW790 Micro Bricks stencil.
I then started building my background colour. I started off with Lindy’s Stamp Gang Starburst Squirts – Emerald Eh? Once it was dry I then applied Starburst Squirts – Loonie Toonie Teal.
I added Art Alchemy Wax – Firebird onto the stenciled area but thought it needed a little bit more orange so I mixed white gesso, water and Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical Shaker – Oktoberfest Orange and splattered onto the disc.
I also used Tim Holtz paper dolls, small talk sticker sheets and vintage design tape.
Thanks for dropping by and make sure you click on the process video below… I apologise for the 2 light discs on my table xx
Hello there everyone!! Today is my turn on The Crafter’s Workshop bog, and I am sharing a mixed media layout I created to teach on a crafting cruise I recently just got home from. So let me show you how I created this layout.
To begin with I lightly coated my patterned cardstock with TCW9011 Gel Medium Matte and once dried I then applied TCW9001 White Gesso in a diamond shape using my spatula. Then I stamped a text stamp using versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder.
Next I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magicals – Industrial Chic to add colour to my background. I used a small paint brush and water for this which I find gives me more control.
Next I used TCW202s Harlequin stencil with Ranger Crackle Medium. I used a heat tool to dry and the added some stamping using black archival ink. I also added some splattering to the background using water and white gesso.
Using the same 3 colours above, I smoosh 4 cards that I cut from the some pattern cardstock into the magicals. This creates a grungy type feel. I then distress the edges and create a photo mount cluster for my photo.
Next I applied TCW9001 White Gesso to the paper straws and Dusty Attic Chipboard. I then painted the chipboard with TCW9013 Iridescent Gold Heavy Body Acrylic Paint. I also used this paint to splatter the background and to paint onto the back of the Prima Melange Art Pebbles.
For the paper straws, I painted the Steampunk Sepia magical onto it and then cut to size. I also added the left over magical mix to the flowers. Then I adhered all the layers onto the cardstock and added some beads to finish off the layout.
Here are some close ups of the layout.
Thanks for stopping by and I will be back soon with another project

Hi there my lovelies!!!! Today I am sharing with you all a mixed media Christmas card and tag I created for The Crafter’s Workshop. For those who know me, I am not a card maker but thought it might be nice for me do something a little different.
The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.
I will start my tutorial off with the card. I used a 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 inch card as the base and applied my Emboss It Dabber to TCW720 Snowflakes 6×6 stencil. Then used white embossing powder to cover the whole area and heat set with my heat gun.
Then I sprayed 13arts Ayeeda Mist Chalk light blue and Lindy’s Stamp Gang Starburst Delphinium Turquoise spray all over the card.
Next I used a separate piece of cardstock and applied TCW9049 Tacky When Dry Gel Medium through TCW717 Ornaments 6×6 stencil. I used my heat gun to make the drying process faster then rubbed some mixed media transfer foil over the top.
I then cut out the ornaments and used foam tape to mount them onto the card. I also adhered some ribbon to the top and used a sticker for my sentiment. To finish off the card, I used Couture Creations Glitzin’ Glamour in Antique Silver.
Now for the tag, I used a precut tag in white and smooshed Distress Inks Broken China and Stormy Sky all over the tag. Then did the same again but with Distress Oxides Ink Weathered Wood.
I used some stamps, snowflake punches, glitter and rhinestones to add some texture. To colour the stamped image, I used the Distress Inks Stormy Sky and Weathered Wood to make a grey/green colour and applied with an aqua pen.
Thanks for dropping by and I will back again soon with my next project xx
Hey there everyone, today I am up on The Crafter’s Workshop blog with another art journal creation.
I’m not sure about you but I find sometimes I experiment in my art journal with different mediums and techniques but don’t actually do anything with that creation, instead I move onto a new page. So I thought why not go back and find these pages and try and complete them. And this is what I came up with for today.
So my art journal pages had a mixture of Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical Shakers which have been on there for about 12 months!! So I decided to add a border to break up the colour, for this I painted TCW9002 Black Gesso and dried with my heat tool.
Next I sprayed Dylusions Spray Black Marble through TCW662s Tile Mania. I didn’t want the whole area covered so I focused on the center of the pages. I used my heat tool to dry.
I wanted to add some stamping to my pages so I used Carabelle Studio – Dutch Tulips stamp set and Versamark. Then heat embossed with white embossing powder. Then coloured the tulips using some Dylusions sprays and a paint brush.
I felt that the white embossing powder was a little bold so I toned it down using a grey toned alcohol marker. I also stamped some butterflies from the 49 and Market stamp set – Butterflies Are Free and some black embossing powder.
To finish the page I stamped Darkroom Door’s – Being Creative stamp onto some white cardstock and cut the quote into pieces. I glued this strips to the page and used a black paint pen to add a border around each piece.
I hope this has inspired you to finished those art journal pages xx
Hello there lovelies, today I am sharing with you all another altered frame. I am having so much fun with these frames that I decided to create a Halloween themed frame and even better that the colours are similar to the Dusty Attic mood board.
For the frame I used Micro Bricks 6×6 stencil by The Crafter’s Workshop with texture paste and then painted the frame using black gesso. Once it was dry I used some Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays and Prima Art Alchemy Waxed to highlight the bricks. I stamped onto the glass with a Tim Holtz stamp and stazon ink, then used Dylusions Spray Tangerine Dream.
For the haunted house I used black gesso, clear crackle varnish and a Lindy’s Stamp Gang Spray – Silent Night Silver. For the windows I painted some scrap pieces of chipboard using Prima Sparks paint in Dragons Eye.
The dead tree and crooked fence is a combination of Distress Inks in the brown tones. For all the other chipboard I used black gesso with a combination of Art Alchemy Waxes, Art Alchemy Acrylic Paints and Prima Sparks Paints.
I wanted to add some more texture to the frame so I bought some Autumn moss from my local Spotlight store and used strong liquid adhesive to adhere to the glass and then adhered all my chipboard pieces layer by layer.

Hello Everyone! I am up on the TCW blog today with another art journal page. When I started my art journal page, I didn’t really have a clear idea on what I wanted to do but decided to just go with the flow and see how it turned out. I find a lot of the time I over think what I want to achieve and it was nice to just let it go. So with that said, this is what my “let it go” looks like.
I’m not sure about you guys but I have a lot of pages in my art journal where I test new products. I wanted to start covering those pages with new projects and this is how I do it. I start by painting TCW9002 Black Gesso all over the page.
Once the black gesso is dry I then apply 2 different coloured shimmer sprays. Against the black these sprays just “pop”.
I used a heat gun to dry in between both colours. Next I used TCW9014 Iridescent Silver Heavy Body Acrylic Paint with TCW267s Mini Ledger 6×6 stencil. I used a sponge dauber to apply the paint to the page.
Once the paint was dry I then mixed another spray with TCW9004 Light and Fluffy Modeling Paste to create a light brown tone.
Next I applied it through TCW454s Mini Specimens 6×6 stencil. I only used the round patterns on the stencil.
I used my heat gun to dry the stencil areas. I love how the paste took on on some of the colours from the sprays. To finish off the page I added some stamped images and splattered with a white spray.
