Valentines love

Todays creation includes a Julie Nutting stamp, a Kaiser craft stamp, flowers by Prima and flowers by Dea.  The ribbon along the bottom is actually CTMH material cut into strips and gathered, then I added ribbon from michaels ontop to cover the stitching.

Mixed Media – Prima Marketing – Bloom Collection – Gardenia

Todays creation started with cardboard, an image of Gardenia and pink tissue paper.

I gesso’d the cardboard, modgepodge the tissue paper then I added the snow flakes and let everything dry.  Once dry, I spritzed everything with Dylusion Spray – Crushed Grape and London Blue.  Now keep in mind the tissue paper was pink so I now have very intense colours.

I then coloured with copics Gardenia and fussy cut her.  The dress on her is created with stickles and gelato to give the pink blue hue.  The Snowflakes are cut out with my punches and silhouette, the flowers are Prima Marketing, the letters are cut out using the Silhouette Cameo as well, the flourish at the bottom made with pears is hand formed using pearl strands I had hanging around.

Once I had everything layed out and glued down I added some extra touches, I outlined the snowflakes to give them depth, I added pearls and more stickles to some of the snowflakes, the letters are highlighted with smooch.  My only problem now is to find a way to flatten the board without loosing the depth and to learn to take a decent picture.

Mixed Media – Faber Castell – Gelatos

I created todays mixed media using Faber Castell gelatos on a piece of cardboard that was prepared first with gesso, then stamped with Tim Holtz Stamp nature stamp set on the back ground and a second piece of cardboard.  I then randomly cut one piece of dressed cardboard into different sizes, layered them then I adorned the mat and pieces with Prima Marketing flowers, recollections flowers, flowers by Dea and curly’s by Dea.

I love how the colours blend and the way the blues and greens pop on this piece.

My inspiration came from a tutorial I found on you tube for Gelatos
