Fly High – Mixed Media Tag

Hello and happy Thursday everyone!!! 
Today I am sharing with you all my very first mixed media tag I created for Sassy Scrappers. I had so much fun creating this tag and can’t wait to create some more!! There is a process video at the bottom of the blog if you would like to see how I created the tag.

To create the tag, I used the packaging from a 2 minute noodle box and covered it with Prima Rose Quartz – Grateful Heart pp.
Then using the dabbing technique I applied the following Distress Oxide Inks – Twisted Citron, Peacock Feathers, Abandoned Coral and Wild Honey. (I stamped the inks onto my craft mat and spritzed with water before dabbing and dried in between colours)
Once I was happy with the colours for my background, I then used the font stamp from Darkroom Door Hummingbirds set. Using the same stamp set, I stamped the hummingbird and leafy branch onto some white cardstock and used Lindy’s Stamp Gang Embossing Powder – Black Forest Black.
I then cut out the hummingbird and using a waterpen, I then applied Distress Oxide Inks Seedless Preserves and Salty Ocean to my hummingbird and applied some cheesecloth to the back.  I then inked around the edges of the tag using Distress Oxide Ink Black Soot.
After adhering my stamped bird, I then stamped “Fly High” which is from the same stamp set and added some splattering using Dylusions White Linen Spray.
And there you have it….. a mixed media tag!!!  I hope I have inspired you to create something special.

Dream Catcher Canvas – August Mood Board for Dusty Attic

Hello Again!! Today I am sharing with you a canvas board I created using the Dusty Attic August Mood Board which is on their blog as inspiration.

Mood Board

It’s always a challenge for me to create something that isn’t boy related due to having 3 boys so I found this a challenge but loved every moment of it. I wanted to create a canvas focusing on the dream catcher image and the colour tones….and this is what I came up with.

There are so many layers to this canvas..I just love it!! And I got to use some molds a very dear friend of mine made for me. I loved how the crackle varnish created more texture to the dream catcher.

Here are some close ups.
