Mixed Media doesn't have to be messy

Not all mixed media has to be paste and paint. Sometimes just mixing up papers and fussy cutting is all you need to do. So here are some cards and a canvas I made for Lynette Jasper.

Card One - no stamping here just beautiful papers and a bit of fussy cutting.
This is all stamped and I have taken this picture three times and still don't know why the sentiment is showing black. Weird lol
Card three - Now on this one i have used papers and stickers however if you look closely you will see that the pattern at the top and the bottom of the card is one of the new stencils. I used Faded Jeans Distress Oxide and when dry added little white dots in the centre of each one.
Card four - made using a cream and black paper and coloured in using Pro-Markers
Card five - this time using the new stamps and a bit of colour
Lastly was the canvas. For those of you who hate getting your hands dirty but want to make your own canvas, this is the one for you. All I did was cover one of Lynette's shaped canvas with paper and add cut outs and stickers to the top. I did add a bit of glued tissue but you could miss that step.
I was so excited to use my embossing powder again to enhance some of the papers design. Enjoyed doing this.
And here is the whole collection.

Well that's it for now. Time for a few days rest but I'll be back xx

Pretty Gets Gritty Show Projects May 2018

Loads to share today all of which are projects made for Hochanda tv programme last Saturday and Sunday.
All product links are at the bottom of this post .
Firstly an MDF Organiser decorated with the paper that came as part of the kit and Lynette Jasper's new stamps
I embossed the edges of the stamped leaves using pva glue and gold embossing powder.
I also made two tags which I backed with cardboard.

 The embossed detail is one of Lynette Jasper's new stencils, texture paste with embossing powder sprinkled on the top and then heat dried.
Tag two  and this time I used the wooden frame from the Organiser kit and stamps from the show.
Here's a bit more detail. Loving those stamped words.

Mixed Media Class April 2018

This was a fantastic day and everyone did so well. Every project was different and beautiful. Here are the pictures of my clock examples
so out of 14 students 12 decided to make the white one and 2 the metal one and they all did really well.
Here are some photos of the day




and then of course we had the group photo just to prove we did it
I will be selling the kits and online class to these very soon so keep checking my Etsy Shop 
I also did little 1 minute videos every so often so that the class could look back on what they had done. I've speeded it up a bit but you get the idea.
There is another Mixed Media day on Sunday 21st October with another projects to make. Places sell fast so don't leave it till the last minute. 
Have a great evening xx

Pretty Gets Gritty - Baby Ring

Once again this ring is lovely to hang on a new baby's door. 
I love the mdf bunting and the alphabet letters
I only use a little bit of texture on the teddy bear but you could really go to town with texture paste to make a fur like effect.
the little feet are really cute and could also be used on a beach projects as footsteps in the sand.
and to finish off here is a picture of all three together
I really enjoyed making these. Hope you enjoyed the show xx

DT Pretty Gets Gritty - Princess Wreath

This one was my favourite and would be so cool as a door hanger for a little girls bedroom.
I loved the tiny mdf diamond rings and the gorgeous pink flowers
and if I made this one again I would make the carriage and title more glittery.
The wheels on the carriage were coated with NUVU Crystals to make them stand out. I will share the last of my three wreathes tomorrow. Don't forget you can still buy your Wreath Kits HERE. xx
