THE POWER OF YOU IS UNSTOPPABLE !!

Here I am with number two part of the August Challenge 

This time using a piece of the fantastic white cardstock from the Journal Kit , for the background, 
onto another scrap paper cardstock, I stamped one of Lynne`s lovely wildflowers, in Archival ink,
and after sprayed with the Flat Matte Aqua , diluted with water.


Onto another scrap this time from a greyboard tag I cut in two,
not long ago, I painted White, 
and when dry stamped Donna`s cute dog - he was painted with different
brown watercolour pencils , and a "tree trunk" painted on his left side , with
a few white doodles -


Melina`s beautiful butterfly was stamped ,twice, onto
ricepaper, ,also from the Journal kit, sprayed with Aqua Flat Matte, they were fussy cut and adhered together
with the Gloss gel Medium , making it a bit stiffer , and bendable .


The butterfly was painted details , using a white Posca pen,
and around the perimeter of the wild flower scrap I smeared
some of the Chestnut Brown . 
A piece of Corrugated Cardboard from the kit ,and a gauze piece ,were both also sprayed with 
Bluebell  Flat Matte- and after dry layered onto the cardstock, -the gauze under the wildflower piece , and on top the dog, now , with a little lace piece  with added flower. 
Butterfly was adhered to right upper corner.
Lastly Lynne`s Affirmation was stamped to paper also treated with Aqua , cut into 3, and adhered .

Hugs and love

HIDING........

Dear friends, we have a new CHALLENGE over at 


This months it is called : ANIMAL MAGIC 

and as you can see I used one of Donna Grey`s wonderful quirky stamps,
of her cat Fred. 
I started painting a greyboard panel with  Ivory , and when dry used the  Decorative Leaf
stencil , using Texture Paste ,  and onto the paste I sprinkled  Baked Texture , Ancient Amber,
and left to dry .
I then found a smaller pannel, I wanted to stamp Fred the cat onto, and chose to do it on 
the with of panel, and after cut to fit the size of the big panel.


I painted it with Mint and when dry stamped Fred using Archival Ink,
for the ink not to bleed . He was colored using watercolor pencils, in brown
tones. I wanted him to hide behind curtains, and ferns, and had a piece of rusted teabag
paper, on my table, which was perfect . 
(you can rust papers, rolling them around some rusted items, place them in a container
and add a little water and vinegar- )
I tore the paper to fit the panel and adhered with a very thin layer of adhesive .
After I stamped the fish bone , from same stamp , in 3 places, and defined the eyes and 
fish heads a bit , using white Sharpie.


The stenciled leaf now dry , was heated with my Heat Gun to change to a beautiful golden raised texture, and after , sprayed with Lustre Spray Aqua , which again
was sprayed with water to make it run a bit , down the panel.which was left to dry.
In between I stenciled some letters, -spelling Hiding - onto a reused brown paperbag, using Texture Paste - after dried they were cut out .
Fred panel was now adhered to the middle long panel ,


and the Fern stencil used to create a little fern hide away around him, 
using Chestnut Brown paint dabbed onto the stencil , with a dry brush.
Lastly the letters were placed on top and button of panel , and black 
ink smeared around the perimeter .

If you had the patience to read it all, I thank you , and send you
all good wishes for today. Please read below, if you want to be a part of the challenge ,
and have fun !!

Hugs and love
