Mixed Media canvas

I tried my hand at mixed media canvas, i like but i don't think i am ready to give up 12x12 pages and creating funky albums for mixed media and art journaling.  It was a great change of pace.
The reveal:
 lots of going on...

created lots of texture with modeling paste, stencils, and the tacky mat for inside the cupboards.  Add some paint and sprays

more paint and spray then some blending
once you add the paint all the textures really becomes more pronounced.

this is my favorite part, i added the eye chart stencil with clear embossing paste.  It goes on white and dries clear for the final effect of there but not there.

how cool is that effect.

lots and lots of metal.  I love metal.  My favorite metal pieces are clock parts from prima marketing. But it looks like they don't make them anymore. OMG!!!

close up of metals, lots of metals.

Vintage Bikes- Sketchabilities #132

Another creation from the weekend using a sketch from sketchabilities #132

Here is my take...I started by using my edge punch then inked around edges.  I used a piece of pattern paper underneath.
I created the splatters with dylusions and lindy magicals.  At first i didn't have the splatter but then it was way to clean, i needed a little mess. Oh i flipped the sketch kind of just the bottom.

the close ups
I cut out paper embellishments then had a gold bicycle rub on that was a perfect fit.  chipboard pieces are chicken wire and hexagons.  I covered the hexagons with pattern paper and sprayed with lindy's then inked the sides.  I used tim holtz filmstrip and buckle as accent.

Used a tim holtz rub on as my title, it was perfect for the picture of bikes.  I took the picture at my aunt and uncle's farm- how much more vintage can they be.

One of most favorite things to do is random rubons!!

Scrapbook Challenge

I spent the weekend at a scrapbook retreat in Edmonton and worked on a few challenges.  The first one was at Scrapbook Challenge, sketch below

 and here is my take:
I love everything about this layout, it was one of those moments in scrapbooking where everything just works.  I used paper that i have had for 2-3 years and the page took off.  I used the paper embellishments and fuzzy cut them for page accents.  Next my go to embellishments metal and chipboard.

I created the background with a stencil and modelling paste, then i sprayed with lindy's powder mixed with water.  Once it was dry i inked with vintage photo distress ink.  Then layer, layer, layer.  I love layering!!!

Next the close ups!!
I love this page embellishment
Caution this person is so cute that you may need antidote
Anidote- sunglasses (to block their cute face.), ear plugs (to block out their curious laughter), 3 sweatshirts (so you don't feel their sweet hugs.)  Approach with caution.  Too cute.

this fits my niece perfectly, isn't she a beauty.

two of my favorite things- steampunk balloon, and brackets

clustered groupings of chipboard, metal and enamel dots.  Prima Marketing clock parts are FAB for clustering.  Alas i don't know if you can get them anymore- sucky.

i colored the chipboard with peacock feather distress paint, then sprayed with Lindy's glimmer.  Love the Lindy's products, if you haven't tried it is a scrapbook must.
