Mixed Media Project

Thought I would work on something different today...a mixed media project! After being inspired by the likes of Tim Holtz and Vicki Boutin the thought of a piece for the cottage sounded like something fun!

I started with a 10 x 30 canvas from Currys and used Tim Holtz Distress stain on it. Then I covered it with papers, used acrylic paints, stamps, ColorBox Ink and graphite pencil. The saying I got from the Silhouette Site and I cut it out on cardstock.

YNS Fun Friday Challenge!

One of my favourite stamp company's is from here in Canada and they have a wondeful selection of cute stamps and dies. Here is my card for their latest Challenge for April.
I used papers from DCWV, card stock from CTMH and S/U, flowers from Prima and dots from CTMH. The stamp is from Your Next Stamp and its is called: Thankful for you Fhiona # FF008 and I coloured her with Copic markers.

Card entered: YNS Fun Friday Challenge for April-

Hope you enjoy!

DT Day with Sue

It is my Design Team Day at Meljens today and I decided to share with you a neat card I made for a friend. These cards are the newest craze and it was really fun to make!
I used cardstock from CTMH and paper from DCWV, and used my Silhouette to cut out the images, shapes and card.
For this baby image I actually used a pre-coloured image called: Pick Me Up
These precoloured images are wonderful to use if you are short on time!

Have a look at all the great images Meljens offers including the precoloured ones:
Have a great day!
