Where would you like to go....
Europe, Africa, America , Far away places or stay close to home .....
the choice is yours.
As always what you make,  the style , mediums. materials you use

I have prepared a tag about Paris, the city I have wanted to visit ever since.
I have used the gelli print for the background. 
It isn't perfect but I find it quite interesting.

Let's fake it!


Hi! Today we start a new challenge at Stamps and Stencils.
This time our host is Toni and she has chosen the theme: Let's fake it! for us.
 She'd like to see your projects that include at least one faux finish of our choice.
Produce anything you like but please include some stamping or stencilling or both and join us in the fun!
Pop over to the main blog and get inspired by my wonderful teamies.

I have prepared a ,,metal'' tag full of gears, cogs and screws.
As you can see almost every part of the  tag is a chipboard.


 I started with stenciling some heavy body structure paste to the tag.


Next step was covering all with black gesso.


Some parts were stamped and embossed with copper metallic powder.


Others  covered with rust effect agent set.


The background  was painted  with camouflage paint set.


Starting to put everything together.


I wanted more rust  so I rubbed some Inka Gold metal gloss paint  on some surface. 


 And added some patina effect paste too.



Hope you like it!

Maritime



We start a new challenge today at Try it on Tuesday and the theme is:

Stencils / Die Cuts  or Both

                                  Pop this on your blog to find us fast!


What materials, style and mediums etc... that you use, is as always entirely up to yourselves.
Have fun, we are looking forward to seeing how you interpret this theme .

My take on the theme  is a maritime tag.
I made my own background with acrylic paints, then added some stenciled structure paste and some stamping. 

    

To embellish my tag I used an anchor die cut and the fish were  cut from a very nice tea packaging ( you know- I love to recycle things).
Hope you like it!

In the Meadow



Our new challenge over at Stamps and Stencils for the next month is hosted by Rachel. 
She wants to see your interpretation of the theme In the Meadow which could involve lots of grasses, wildlife or whatever you think.
Just make sure you use stamps, stencils or both in your make! 
The design team have created some amazing inspirational projects, so please pop over and take a look.
I hope you will join us as I’m looking forward to seeing all of your creations!

My take on the theme is a  page in an old book I use for an art journal.
I made some masterboard earlier and a piece of it served as my background.
I was inspired by the look of a meadow in a hot, summer day.



That's why I first  made the shadows of the plants with black gesso and the stencil.


The shadows were outlined with white gelly roll pen.


The ,,proper" flowers were stenciled, fussy cut and glued to the background.
I outlined them too.
I attached the base to my page and finished it off by adding some stamping and some stickers.

Dorothy


Today we kick off the new challenge over at Try it on Tuesday
This time our theme is: Recycle Something
We are sure you will all be able to find something[ small or large]  that you could re-use in some way.
The style, mediums and materials you use is entirely up to yourselves.
Be sure to tell us what you used.

Please pop to the main blog to see some fantastic inspiration from my teamies.

                                        Pop this on your blog to find us fast!


My take on the theme is an altered doll.
Please meet Dorothy straight from The Wizard of Oz.






Dorothy is 11 cm tall and was made from a broken dolly, a small tin  and lots of  trash and oddments from my stash.


I  have used gel heavy body matt to put all the pieces together.



You can open the small tin and see  Dorothy's inside.





I decided to give her  two queer legs.




Hope you like her as much as I do....
