Hi there my lovelies!! Today I am sharing a mixed media layout I created for the Aussie YouTube Hops June 2019. So this month we had to use the mood board for our inspiration. I used the colours of the board and the word ” PLAY”.
The video link is below… and guess what? I am speaking in it! Well at the start of the video I am (shock….horror lol). In the description box of the video you will find the list of the other designer’s projects with their links too.
I hope you enjoyed my tutorial and I would love to see some of your interpretations of this mood board.
Hi Everyone and happy Thursday!!! Today I am on The Crafter’s Workshops Blog with this mixed media tag. I know, I am very late on the old Tim Holtz Paper Dolls but I am sooo in love with these and how good do they look with TCW stencils?!

Hi there Everyone, today I am up on the Dusty Attic blog with my take on this month’s mood board challenge. Man how are amazing is this mood board? I love those earthy tones!
So for my inspiration I used the colours of the mood board. I also used the picture as well…. when I see this photo I think of how gorgeous the sunset is and what would be magical during a sunset? A hot air balloon ride!!! So here is what I created with all that in mind.

Happy Thursday Everyone!! Today I am sharing my newest art journal page for The Crafter’s Workshop. I love how this page turned out, so bright and fun.
Let’s get to the tutorial!! To be begin, I used a page from an old dictionary and tore that page into strips. I used TCW9011 Gel Medium Matte to adhere to my art journal page.
Once the medium is dry, I then used a paint brush to apply some acrylic chalk paint.
Next I used TCW836 Texture Love stencil with TCW9001 White Gesso and acrylic paint to randomly add some patterns to my art journal. I used a sponge to apply the paint.
The next stencil I used was TCW832 Script Words
I used TCW9001 White Gesso and stamped with a lid to create some circles. Then used my spatula to create a line pattern.
I used archival ink and some different stamps to add more texture to the background.
I then decided to add some more stamped images. I used Distress Crayons to colour the images and to add shading. Here you can see I am using an aqua pen (water pen) to blend the crayon.

Hello there my creative friends!!! It’s that time again for another DT post for The Dusty Attic and today I get to share a layout I created as a class on a crafting cruise I was on a few months ago.
The papers I used are Dear Diary by Mintay and the flowers are from Prima Marketing Inc. The flowers I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magicals – Totally 80’s. I stamped the background using a prima text stamp.
I covered the clock, butterfly, script, doily and “sweet memories” with white gesso and then used the Totally 80’s magical to add colour. For the leaves, roman numerals and “Be Happy” chipboard, I left them raw and applied the magical directly onto them. I loved how the sparkle of the magical just intensified doing it this way.
I inked around the edges of the clock face with Black Soot ink and added some splatters using the magicals.

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
Hello! Hello! Hello! I am back to share with you all my interpretation of this month’s Dusty Attic mood board.
I will not lie, I found the colours of this mood board quite hard as purple (any shade of it) is a hard colour for me to work with but I love pushing the boundaries and ended up having a lot of fun creating this layout.
For the patterned paper I used 7 Dots Garden Party – the colours matched the mood board perfectly. Along with flowers by Little Birdie and Plum Preserve Metallique Acrylic Paint by Finnabair.
The sketch grid stencil I used in the background is by The Crafter’s Workshop and I used Paper Texture Paste by Finnabair. I also added some art stones and beads to the flowers.
I covered the Geometric Panel pieces in black gesso and used Art Alchemy Waxes. For the Clockworks chipboard, I covered in white gesso and used the waxes and some archival inks and finally for the title I used archival ink on word “Always” after I painted the words in white gesso.
