Sun kissed nose, Sandy toes!

Hey, Hey, Hey,

I'm back :P
So this is my last impression of this months mood board,
not intricate but simple and effective.

My Kids when they were young!!

Using Penelope Dee papers from the Paradise Collection.

I started with spaying Nuvo-Nebula blue onto a wet wipe and wiping 
over areas on my back ground page.
I added white netting, tore my blue page and added the cut off strip.
Attached to the back ground raising it!

I cut my photos into different size circles and sanded the edges.

For the sand dollar and bubble chippies, 
once again I painted white first, then dusty-Capri green, adding Prima blue and touching up with white paint.

For the Title, I cut it in half and painting Prima-deep waters-blue 
and then spraying Nuvo-Nebula Blue. 

I included drops of Nuvo-Turkish Rose.

Attaching and layering 
then adding Prima- medium and small art stones.
as well as metal starfish charms.

Completing the layout with Flowers.

Summer Fun

Good morning fellow scrappers!

Hope those of you who are attending Creativation are having a blast!

Today I'm here with the first of my inspirational mixed media canvases!

This is my brothers niece, Gabi, 
doing her impression of surf boarding antics!

I used Prima -Deep waters paint, watered down 
and poured onto the canvas. To create the darker areas I re-did it.

I then mixed sand into heavy gesso to create my white sand.

Adding small art stones and netting.

I coloured my gauze with Nuvo-Turkish Rose 
and spraying water to get it lighter in areas.
I also added a few drips onto the canvas, with the blue and pink.

For the drift wood chippie I painted brown. 
For the shell chippies, I first painted white then 
added a bit of brown and gold embossing paste. 

The title I mixed the blue with some green 
until I got my desired colour.

Then layered and assembled, adding glass stones 
and a real Starfish to complete the canvas!

Last one for the year....

I love to work on canvas!
I adore this photo that I found on Pinterest.

For this layout I used two photos.

Once again, 
for the back ground I mixed the nuvo shimmer powder - Atlantis Burst 
and applied to the canvas. 
Re-applying several times to get the desired effect. 
Also splatting, including Prima sparks - Unicorn hair.

I stencilled using a music note, 
and stamped with Christmas stamps.

The painting all chippies with dusty Capri paint, 
let dry and touching up with Prima sparks.

I included white netting to the back ground and layered from there.
I also used gold netting as well as flowers.
I attached 2 little glitter birds.

Me again...

So here is my final mixed media layout for this month!!!

This is my Daughter and her boyfriend at her Matric dance!

Using colour stock card, I tore a piece off and placed at the top of the page.
I stencilled with the Dusty - Demask, using heavy Gesso and 
then the Clockwork using Prima Graphite paste. 

Then added Ranger-Seedless Preserve ink, plus water {to help spread the paint} Pouring on to the page and guided the spill the way I wanted, then a touch of Prima colour bloom – Precious stone, to create the back ground. 

For the Dusty Lace chippie I painted with Prima colour bloom–Precious stone and touched up the dry brushing white gesso on top. I then, touched up with Nuvo-Glimmer Paste- Amethyst purple. 
I also sprayed the words with Ranger-Seedless Preserve ink and boarded with gold paint.

I also included a page from an old book, Lace, Metal bits and Dusty in bloom flowers plus handmade ones. 
I splattered with gold paint to finish off the layout.
