...just couldn't stop

See Beauty ATC by Lynne Forsythe

Hello peeps.....hope all is well in your neck of the woods!!

I have another ATC for


Week 3 Challenge.....
Week 3: Use up old alpha or number stickers/die cuts

I began with an ATC made from my "handmade" paper.
 To see how I made my paper head over here!

I pulled out a bag of UmWowStudio Alpha One
and randomly adhered letters to my ATC.

Next, I created a White Gesso Wash to cover
the Alpha One Chippies.

I then layered on some Multi Medium ~ Matte
and sprinkled on a bit of Mini Pearls.

When everything was dry I pulled out 2 Pipettes
and Macadamia and Tide Pool Glimmer Glaze.
I pulled up a bit of each color and deposited it on my ATC.
To help the color move, I spritzed with water.

I pulled out a piece of Woven Mesh from my 'TOVER's pile
and painted on a bit of the Tide Pool to help hold it together.

I also grabbed a piece of Black Ticking
from my 'TOVER's pile
along with pieces of an UmWowStudio ~ Ivy
and a premade spiral flower that was kickin' around.

Playin' along...


She Made Room ATC by Lynne Forsythe

I was invited by a fellow crafter to the 
Mixed Up Mag Mixer....



Their latest prompt for the Pix N Mix prompts is
Week 3: Use up old alpha or number stickers/die cuts
so I decided to play along.

First, I wanted to make some "paper"
using some scraps that were laying around on my desk!
some vintage music paper a piece of 7gypsies Architexture paper
a bit of burlap
a couple pieces of lace
a strip of linen ~ cut up
all adhered to a piece of Canvas Corp Kraft paper
using Multi Medium Matte.

I then painted a layer of Multi Medium ~ Matte
all over EVERYTHING! as a glaze.
When dry, I applied a layer of
diluted Gesso.

When dry, I cut my new "paper" into a bunch of ATC's.
Then I went digging for some old Alpha's.
I affixed them to my ATC and white washed them.

I pulled out various Tattered Angels, 
a few pieces parts that I had laying around,
I cut up a few left overs papers and made spiral flowers.

My Self Challenge


I was in a bad way.....
my creativity gone....nowhere to be found!
....and I was VERY SAD.
When I've encouraged others with this same malady
I emboldened them to find a challenge...
check out a sketch to inspire their creativity.
I tried these same tactics and NOTHING!

So what did I do.....
watch this little clip to find out!!


Here is what I came up with my
"floor 'TOVERS" hahahahaha

Now, this was my challenge to myself
use only what I picked up off the floor
or what was on my craft surface.


 In the end, I cheated and pulled out a stamp that
spoke to my heart!

UmWowStudio New Release......


Hello Creative Souls....
THANK YOU for stopping by my blog and joining
The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge!


Can I just say I am beyond GIDDY!!
UmWowStudio and I have partnered to release....



I had a paint lid that was 
kicking around in my studio from 
a decoration for my daughter's bridal party!
I began by painting my lid with
Tattered Angels ~ High Impact Paint ~ White.
I then used The Crafter's Workshop ~ Mini Prismascope
and Light and Fluffy Modeling Paste.


Whey dry I colored my lid with 
Tattered Angels ~ Glimmer Glaze
Galaxy
Pewter and
Saffron
Glimmer Glam ~ Bon Bon


My latest addiction....Relics & Artifacts!
I used one of the "face" resins from Visage and colored it with 
Tattered Angels ~ Glimmer Glam ~ Bon Bon
and Glimmer Glaze ~ Saffron
and accented it with vintage chain cord.


......and there it is......my UmWowStudio ~ Large Ivy


...colored with Tattered Angels ~ Glimmer Glaze ~ Galaxy and Saffron.


I finished off my creation 
by stamping on a piece of TissueStock with Stazon ink
and applying to my lid with Ranger ~ Multi Medium ~ Matte.


I finished off my creation with various twine, lace and chain.


I hope you enjoyed my creation.

All those tags....MMMC Mid Month


Welcome to the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge ~ MidMonth!


Our sponsor this month is...

When working on my first post for the challenge,
I made up a BUNCH OF TAGS.
If you missed it....here is my video on
how I made my tags using stamps fromTopFlight Stamps.


I truly had an AWESOME time working with
my Block Wallah ~ Exotic  and also
Katzelkrafts ~ Clouds stamps.

So.....what does one do with all these "tags"??!??!
You fancy 'em up....
a flower
some leaves
a bit of ticking
a length of wire ribbon
and a loopy bow.

But then what??
You've end up with a pile of tags. 
So I thought I'd try something different.


I decided to cover an artboard with some vintage paper,
added a bit of vintage curtian and
an larger piece of flute.....
to create a tag, worthy of hanging on your wall.
