Another Landmark

Couldn't resist creating another Landmark Tag for the current challenge over at Tag Tuesday

I coloured the back ground of this tag with distress ink before stamping the images...
All stamps are by Darkroom Door..they were just perfect for this theme.
I do hope you will find time and join in with this challenge...

Hello to all my blog visitors..looks set for a nice weekend much cooler too, which for me is wonderful...
I'm sharing my "Landmarks" Tag with you today..made for the current challenge over at Tag Tuesday
The theme, which I think is great, was chosen by teamie Wendy...
I have a few stamps that were suitable for this theme, but I have used my favourites from Darkroom Door and Artistic Outpost...

I kept my tag relatively simple regarding the colour palette...if I find enough time, I will make another tag with a different landmark..I am child free ( no great grandson duties,lol ) so I can get in to my craft  room this week...
Do pop over and join in with our challenge..we love to see your tags and visit your blogs...

Such a "Bright" Birdhouse....

My goodness, time seems to be flying's August already and I have noticed there are quite a few christmas themed projects appearing already in the crafting world....
Not for me least not yet..I have this pretty Birdhouse to showcase today...

This is my project this month for the challenge over at 
As always the theme is anything mixed media goes...but with an optional twist..and this month's twist is "Brights"
So after sanding it down I gessoed the birdhouse, I used bright acrylic paints to bring it to life.
The roof was then stamped with my bubble stamp from Indgoblu in black stazon ink.

Using my paint pen I added dots to the bubbles and also dots around the opening and wall and base.
Reindeer moss made for a bit of grass...I added flowers and then the bird....
Do go and check out the challenge here at 
More Mixed Media....there is a prize for our winner each month too of some gorgeous papers designed by Lozzy, our boss lady..

My Wooden Heart

It's time to get out all your recycling and mixed media stash and pop along to Rhedd's Creative Spirit and enter our challenge.
Myself and the design team would love yo see you so we can all pop along and leave some love on your blog.
We are a strictly no paper-crafts challenge you can let your imagination go wild with whatever takes your fancy.
Myself and my team invest a lot of our time and energy to inspire you ..and again this month our wizardry Julie will be doing a mid month tutorial on the 15th August.

I myself have had a busy month..mainly family and health my project this month for Rhedd's wasn't what I had originally planned..but never mind it turned out ok I think....

I started with this lovely wooden heart that I painted twice with gesso..then when that was dry, I cut up some sponge and daubed different coloured acrylic paints on to the heart.
I dried it with my heat tool..then using stazon ink I used my my bubble stamp and stamped that all over the heart.
I then used a paint pen and dotted inside some of the circles.

I stamped the sentiment on some yellow card and distressed the edges and added that to the heart.
I twisted some wax cord and used hot glue to add it under my feather butterfly..I then added some more wax cord for the hanging loop.

I hope to see you over at Rhedd's Creative Spirit soon.....
