A Chunky Atc for MMM.

I had fun creating this chunky Atc, it's my design team project for More Mixed Media.
The challenge each week is always Mixed Media with an optional twist. this month the twist is Yellow.


I covered the front & back with floral backing paper and light green backing paper for the top,bottom and sides. 


I then distressed the edges using Fossilised Amber and for some shimmer I sprayed the whole piece with Docrafts Goldtone Spray. 
The word stamp is by Paperartsy and the Gibson Girl face is by Artistic Stamper. The girl was stamped separately, coloured, cut and added to the chunky Atc.


I added a scrap of lace to and some flowers and a bird to the bottom corner.
Sorry about the hot glue stringy bits...the photo shows everything,lol..I have since removed them...


I then added the feet and the top knob that I had painted yellow..the top also has 2 brass opposing  corners.

So do please pop over to check out this months challenge and also see what wonderful creations the rest of the team have created...

Vintage Sweet Box

I came across this old sweet box when I had to clear my fathers house after he passed away. In his later years he became a bit of a hoarder, he always felt there was a use for everything....
So I decided to alter it as my design team project for Altered Eclectics.


I first gave the box 2 coats of white gesso, then painted the sides and inside the box in an off white acrylic paint....once dry I applied the napkin to the lid and using a brayer to get rid of an air bubbles.
I left the box overnight to completely dry.



For the sides of the box base I inked up the butterfly stamp by Kaiserkraft and stamped around the edges...then distressed all edges in Aged Mahogany distress ink.




I sprayed 2 coats of seal and shine all over the box and to finish I added a couple of brass corners and a butterfly.



Do pop over and have a look at this months challenge..also take a look at the wonderful creations by the design team...

Mobile Phone Holder by Fernli Designs

Here I am with my final project for March for Fernli Designs...two mobile phone holders.
As with all products from Fernli Designs, they are beautifully finished and they accept many types of mediums directly to their surface with little or no preparation...



I decided to make different themes and one for a male the other for a female....

I gave the holders, back as well as the front 2 coats of acrylic paint.



While the paint was drying I stamped the images I wanted to do for the male version on to some card and heat embossed the images, coloured them and cut them  out.


I used the Inventor, the large script and the label....


Using a selection of acrylic paints I dabbed areas over the holder and once dry I added some shapes through a stencil. I also added a few stamped images directly to the holder...but forgot to take a photo...


For the female version I used some stamps from my stash and stamped over both pieces...then distressed the edges using Aged Mahogany distress ink.


I then added the images to the holders using book glue,ensuring each piece was stuck down securely. The images for the female version were all from my stash.




I assembled both pieces and then gave them 2 coats of Crafters Companion Spray and Shine to seal the paint and images and to create a wipe clean surface.
                            Below are a few more images..






Thank you to all that visit and leave a comment on my blog......
My Thanks to All at Fernli Designs for having me as their Guest Designer for March....x
