My Kraft Plus challenge entry

I have been frustrated this week, back and neck troubles have kept me away from my happy place at my craft desk. I thought I would try something smaller for this challenge, so I made a card. Here is the inspiration board from Kraft Plus...

Wow, what a fantastic image!!! But, it overwhelmed me a little. Once I sat down and looked at it, and individual clusters, I could let the inspiration take over. I started with a Gesso background, a bit of stamping and then some Colour Blast colour paste. I received the cool ship, chipboard piece & travel  tape from a pocket letter swap, and used lots of twine in the background. Then just stamped all my travel words in different colour Archival inks. Hope you like it!!!

I'm an ICADian!!!!

I'm a little excited to be starting a new challenge!! Yes, another one, but this one is really, really cool. The challenge of ICAD, (index-card-a-day), has been running once a year for 61 days for the last 6 years, by the lovely Tammy at DAISY YELLOW ART. The idea is to use a packet of index cards, either 5x3" or 4x6" and make some free art on them, 1 per day! How cool is that for us time poor peeps. A little bit of something just for us every day. Experiment, be inspired by others and have fun...love that idea! It starts on June 1st and I couldn't help myself last night, I had a bit of a warm up and made this, using Blended Distress inks, sprayed with a Perfect Pearl mist, stamped with a Kaisercraft Stamp and Archival Ink. I also used a Kaisercraft stencil and some Archival ink for the pink dots! It made me happy, I went to bed feeling accomplished!

Go and check it out if you're up for the challenge. There is also a FB page where everyone is going to share their creations!!!!

Happy International Scrapbooking Day!!!

Hi all!!! A few things going on today, challenges everywhere and I'm still not feeling a hundred percent, after the dreaded virus I've had....but I did manage to teach a class today to celebrate NSD!!! I had a gorgeous group of 8 ladies in class today, this is the page I created for them!!!

Lots of Mixed Media layers on there, but the piece de resistance was this gorgeous paper pieced mannequin, using a few different stamps from Kaszazz!

Other layers include: stamping, Dylusions sprays, Distress paints, Metallic Distress Stain, texture paste, Alcohol Ink Markers and the black dribbly bits are from my Archival ink refill bottle!!!
TFL! Tania
