Stamplorations Stencil Sunday~Fairy Dreams Paper Collage Art Tag


Happy Sunday!

Just a small project to share to hopefully brighten your day! Over on STAMPlorations you can see all the fabulous projects this month from my teamies, hope you can find a few minutes to visit, the link is HERE.

I made the background using the ARTplorations stencil, "Bloom Silhouettes" with my homemade gelatin plate. 

Once dry I started adding some collage images that I had made at the copy shop using their laser printer. The images are from the Graphics Fairy and Crowabout StudioB at Mischief Circus.. The paints are DecoArt acrylics and DecoArt Media Fluid acrylic, gold.

Have an awesome day!

Visible Image Sunday~Leave Your Fears Behind Art Tag

Happy Sunday!

Glad you are back for another wonderful week and a bit of Visible Image playtime! A quick note as well, hope your were able to catch Visible Image on Create and Craft UK, yesterday. There are some replays available so you can see some awesome demos! As soon as I get the specific link to view it here in the US I will add it into this post :)

I used the wonderfully powerful image set, "Leave Your Fears" by Visible Image. The rest is my usual painty play mix with a bit of embossing, some reclaimed headphone wire and candy foil wrapper for added fun!

Have a wonderful Holiday Season! Will see you again in January after a bit of a break for all of the DT and Mark & Helen of Visible Image. Will leave you with a bit of a tease, you WILL want to come back to see the new and exciting things to come in Visible Image early in 2016!

Peace and hugs,


Visible Image hot spots!

Stencil Sunday~Mailart with STAMPlorations


Today I have a mailart envelope to share made with all stencils by ARTplorations! Today begins a new mixed media challenge at STAMPlorations and it is anything goes except at card and use any stencil. You can see all the inspiration from my teamies and all the details HERE

My basic print was pulled from my homemade gelatin plate with various DecoArt acrylic paints. The big arrows and feathers are from the new large full page size ARTplorations stencil called Feathers & Arrows. The new large stencils are just about 8 inches by 10 inches and wonderful!

"Hello" and "Create" are also made using ARTplorations stencils. The doodly flowers on the side are from the "Bloom Factory" stencil.

This is the full envelope before folding :)

I used a template I found at Mischief Circus by Crowabout StudioB

I love how the back shows off the gorgeous feathers!

Have a great day and hope to see you play soon!


Visible Image Sunday!~Imagine Art Tag

Happy Sunday!

I made a small tag I would like to share today!

My substrate is a piece of cardboard from a shipping box. On top of that I layered some images cut from some collage sheets I found at Mischief Circus, Crowabout StudioB, along with some paper scraps of my own. Everything is attached using gloss medium.

Once dry, I added some sparkle using my favorite Visible Image stamps! I used "Imagine" from the, "Imagine, Dream Inspire", stamp set.

I added some dots using the "Ink Splats" stamp and "Retro Dots Background", stamp.

I had lots of fun making this, hope you like it!

Have a great week!
