Love Birds by Karen Middleton



These birdies are just the most precious little things.
They are set in spring but it snowed on them which can happen in early spring.
 I used Distress Inks and a snow paste that I made myself.

Artist of the week Joanne Schempp - Tera's view

 Hallo,
   I really love how this project turned out!!!  I have been playing with encaustic wax painting lately but some how my paper arts/rubber stamping addiction always has to get in on the action :)
  I first built up many layers of wax - painting first several clear layers and then alternating colored layers with clear to get the backround the way I wanted it.
  Next I used a transfer technique for the ship - made a large copy onto regular printer paper and rubbed it into the wax - then wetting the paper somewhat rubbed off the paper which leaves just the image in the wax.
  The pirate I had colored with prismacolor pencils onto Neenah 'desert storm' which is a smooth kraft cardstock and I layed him on top of a warm layer of wax and added several layers of wax ontop of him to hold him in place.
  Both images are by Joanne Schempp - 'The Black Pearl' and 'Ancient One' and are both available as rubber stamps and as digis' (and believe it or not I have both versions of both...)
  Lastly I added a couple oyster shells and a black pearl and gold sword make with clay (the sword with a mold)
  All for today - Take Care
     Tera

Artist Week - Ancient One - Jane's view

Sweet Pea Stamps

Today is my day to showcase and image from Sweet Pea Stamps and I have chosen to work with the beautiful image Ancient One by Joanne Schempp which is available from the Sweet Pea Store in both rubber and digi.
I have not tried mixed media like this before so be gentle with me :) :) I am in awe of some of the mixed media projects I have seen on the web and just could not resist giving it a go.  To begin with I printed my image, well two as I was thinking about having another Joanne Schempp image of the sail ship in the background but had not totally made up my mind.  The idea soon flew out the window and I decided I did not need it.
 Next I raked out a whole load of dies and double cut them using stiff white card.  The dies I used were Tattered Lace Retro Alphabet, Memory Box Splash Border which I cut up into two sections and also used the spiral excess bits of the die and finally Marianne Designs Creatables Anchor.  I also added some Flower Soft and some bead and metal shells.
 I don't have many supplies for this sort of project as not much is available in Saudi Arabia, or a least I have not seen many products around but I do have some white acrylic paint so that is what I used to paint over the background ready for airbrushing with Promarkers later.  Next I coloured the image with just one colour of blue Promarker, trying to build up the colour but using several layers.
 Onto the background, I first masked my coloured image and set to with the airbrushing in two colours of blue, one was Bluebell but I can't remember what the other was lol - afraid I was having to much fun to remember to write down what I had used.
 Next I stippled some PVA glue in areas and then stippled with silver bronzing powder on top. I added lots of Pearl and Silver Liquid Pearls to the digi.
Not quite happy with the digi so using the darker of the two blues I used for the background I added a bit more depth to him.  Finally I added a silver ships wheel charm and three brads. A blast of Crafters Companion Silver Varnish and all done.  This decorated mat was then mounted on a silver mirror card mat, a navy corrugated mat and then a mauve mat. The group was them attached to my navy card blank.
For the inside of the card I used Spellbinders Labels 1 and a Spellbinder embossing folder.  A bit more of the silver bronzing powder and another anchor completed this section.
 And here we have it - a rather funky man card.  For a first attempt I am pretty pleased with myself and most of all I had amazing fun, getting covered in paint and glue I felt like a kid all over again, such a fun day :) :) :)

Ingredients:-
  • Image - Ancient One by Joanne Schempp
  • Colouring Medium - Promarkes, acrylic paint
  • Dies - Tattered Lace Retro Alphabet, Memory Box Splash Border, Marianne Designs Creatables Anchor and Spellbinders Labels 1
  • Embossing Folder - Spellbinders Seashells
  • From my Stash - Silver Bronzing Powder, Liquid Pearls, shells, metal shells, ship wheel charm and brads
Thank you for stopping by today and hope you have a happy crafting time ahead of you :) xx

Mitzi Sato-Wiuff's Whimsical Little Leprechaun - by Angelique

Good morning, it's saturday again, 
Time for a new project

When the weather is bad, my daughter goes to school by train, instead of pushbike.
So we always save up small change / coins to pay her ticket
We used to put it into a clear clean boring glass jar, so I thought it was time to alter
another empty instant coffee jar and turn it into a money jar

I've used the rubber stamp: Whimsical Little Leprechaun by Mitzi Sato-Wiuff
You can find it in shop HERE



MATERIALS:
Empty jar, gesso, acrylic paint, guilding wax, 3d stamp paint, some coins, stencil, distress inks/markers, twinkling h2o's
For more rubber stamps by Mitzi Sato-Wiuff visit the Sweet Pea Stamps shop HERE

We have a verry nice and friendly group on facebook and we would love to see your make with any of the Sweet Pea Stamps.

I hope you enjoyed my project
See you again next week
