 I do hope you will join us in this fun challenge, I can't wait to see what you come up with!!




This is a calendar which was attached to my fav magazine. As I didn't quite like the colours I decided to alter it's cover.

                                                           

I glued some scraps of paper to the cover.


Gave the surface  a good wash of the paint.


Sprayed some Dylusions inks. 


Stamped with white Brilliance ink.


To finish off I added some white gesso through the diamond stencil and some text stamping in black ink.
I have also glued the round numbers.

La vie







I have made a tag with a very simple message for myself: Life is beautiful. 
Being constantly struggling with depression I seem to forget this simple thing and I need a piece I can look at and repeat the words.
So it is a kind of a plan for 2017- stick to the words: La vie est belle!

I went green with this project as I brought into play baby wipes early used for mopping the inks in another works. 
The lettering is cut from perfume packaging (wonderful Christmas present).
You can also see some of the stages:









I am playing along with the following challenges:
the paper players: going green
creative artiste mixedmedia: challenge 22
frilly and funkie: new years inspiration

Chest of drawers



A Tissue is our very first challenge in 2017 over at TRY IT ON TUESDAY.
Pop to our blog to get inspired by awesome works of our DT.

                                          Pop this on your blog to find us fast!

My take on the theme is an altered chest of drawers.
As usual you can find some of my steps beneath.

                                                     


Let's start!


It is time for a tissue!


Some stenciling with texture paste.


Flower made from eggs container.


Lots of junk and bits from my drawers.


There are some microbeads too.


All covered with gesso.


Fav part- inking, spraying and splashing.


To finish off I added some metal legs, knobs and a vintage key. 
I have also stamped some diamond pattern.

    Winter House



    Today we start another new challenge over at Mixed Media Mojo.
    The theme is Winter Holidays with the twist Sparkle.
    Please pop over to the blog to see some fab pieces of our team.


                                                                


    With this piece I am saying good bye to Mixed Mojo Team and wanted to thank Maria and all the girls for a wonderful time I had with them. Big hugs to you all!

     I have altered an old wooden house to make it home decor for the holiday season.
    It looked just that:

    I gave it a good coat of white Deco Art Crackle Paint.


    Then I have used navy blue Twinkling H2o's and Metallic Gilding Wax for the edges.

                                                                  

    The chipboard piece was heat embossed with gold and cooper.

                                                                        

    To finish my piece off I added some glitter, beads and stamped wishes.
