Captured a moment!

Good morning Beautiful people,

I’m back with my last impressions of this month’s mood board.

This photo of my Doctor Ruth and her new husband Peter was so fitting!
This is a mixed media layout, inspired by Finnabair.

For the back ground I use lace, strips of canvas and bandage tape, placing sort of in the middle of my canvas using heavy body gel, dry. I then began to place my flowers; metal embellishments and straws, once again using heavy body gel. Always placing my photo to check and see if things are where I want them.

I then stared with Prima Art Alchemy sparks paint spraying with water to create the desired effect but please remember to do this, one by one and drying, so the colours don’t run and become muddy. Touching again with the paint I want to make stand out.

I added bobbins and thread plus thimbles, as well as heart pins.
 I truly enjoyed this layout!!

Products used:

plus flowers any shape and colour, as well as metal tops and flowers!

I hope I have inspired you !
Happy scrapping

The Perfect Sunset

Good morning Beautiful people,
I’m back with my impressions of this month’s mood board.

This is my first one; this is my daughter and her boyfriend on signal hill, Cape Town.

This is simple yet effective mixed media layout.
I found that with the Dusty chippies, we get a lot of left over board. So not wanting to waste, I cut the left over board into pieces and placed on my canvas.

Then covered with tissue paper, using clear gesso and Let dry.
Using Prima art alchemy paints I covered the back ground.

I then stencilled with graphite past and a Prima Bloom collection stencil

I then stared putting it all together Using wire netting Flowers Clips and sequins 

I found metal frames and flowers to add a bit of sparkle and added my Words@play titles.

Products used:

Hope you have as much fun as I did.

Love this Memory!

Hello again!
I’m back with my impressions last impression of the May mood board!
Of witch I hope to inspire you!

So this mixed media layout is my daughter walking over Brooklyn Bridge,
 a little subtle, this time!

On a canvas, I stencilled with webbing stencil,
Then gave the back ground a distressed look using heavy gesso, crackle paint and dry wall tape.

I found string and wrapped around the canvas.
I took wood grained paper and chalked using various colours to cre
ate the desired effect.

I used an old page from a book, I coloured with Versa Magic- orange, and then for the title and industrial boarders, I painted with prima art alchemy metallique acrylic paint- rustic brown and steampunk copper.

The metal embellishments are beads, metal netting and locks, with ribbon.
Flowers are Celeb8, a local company.

Then using the new Nuvo Nuvo Shimmer powder- Storm cloud I created the back ground with splats.

Used Versa Magic- orange for the title, as well as glossy accents. 

For the ABC123 boarder, I used delicata pigment ink-black shimmer.

Paradise found

I am Back….
Here’s my last impression of April mood board.
I found this photo of Marilyn Monroe on the net and decided to tone this one down.

This photo needed something beautiful just like Marilyn.

The back ground paper is from Kaisercraft and using a script stamp, 
lightly stamped with Tim Holtz- Pumice stone ink. 

I used the new Prima Acrylic paints - Deep waters to colour my gauze 
and Pure Sunshine for the netting.

I added bark form my palm tree, some dried roots, 
as well as sea sand and shells. Including a star fish.

Using the Prima Metallique – Deep waters and 
All-Purpose champagne ink 
 I painted all my Dusty Attic Chippies!

I added one Yellow flower from Prima.


 Happy scrapping all!
