Create Art

When I was at Creativation in Phoenix I was lucky enough to meet Shimelle!!  Shimelle is so friendly and down to earth, I really loved listening to her stories and her lovely laugh!  She was kind enough to give me a stack of papers and a few goodies from her new collection Box of Crayons, so I got busy and put them to use!  I immediately thought of an older photo of Hannah getting artsy which is something she did often and still does.  Box of Crayons has the perfect colors and super cute and whimsical characters and embellishments!  For a little fun I sketched messy pencil cirlces on the background!  I love this collection, definitely one you may want to check out!!

The little cat is the cutest!!  The papers layer up so beautifully, and check out the rainbow photo corners!!

 

Capture Life

I sat down with my gelli plate and made a big fun mess! I used my new Vicki Boutin Color Pop paints and a few other mixed media items like gesso, stencils, Heidi Swapp Gold Modeling Paste and Gold Colorshine.  I used green & blue Color Pop for one set of pages and purple, pink and mint for another set.

I had no intention for the pages but I knew a greenish one would make nice leaves and I can always use leaves!  Here are the papers I ended up making.

I had a large purple flower from the Vicki Boutin All The Good Things die cut pak that I had  been wanting to use, so I decided to make flowers and leaves from the papers using some Sizzix dies.  I pieced papers onto the sides of 8.5×11 cardstock to carry the mixed media fell onto the background! Here you can see the big purple flower clustered under the photo!

 

I love the black and white circles from the die cut pak and I used small flowers from the sticker book as centers for the flowers!

Happy Snow

My assignment for Mixed Media Monday at Hip Kit was to use Irit’s gorgeous papers in the December 2017 Hip Kit as inspiration!  I used the Shimmerz Snow Way Man Vibez spray from the December 2017 Color Kit with the Shimmerz Puttin’ on the Glitz Pasteez to make my background.  It was my first time using Pasteez and I love the texture and glitz it adds!  To embellish I used many items from the American Crafts Sweater Weather stickers and added Pinkfresh Studio frames and chipboard to the mix that came in the November 2017 Hip Kits.
