Enchanted Garden

Hi! It's Sandie here and today I have a card to share which features Bo Bunny's Enchanted Garden paper collection. 

These papers are amazing and, with a little fussy cutting, you don't need any embellishments. 


The card is 120mm x 148mm kraft base with a 115mm x 143mm white panel. 

The butterflies on the book page is from one of the papers in the pack. I used the same paper again and fussy cut the butterflies, adhering them just along the bodies so that the wings could stand up. I layered a Lacey Circle between the panels. 


I also fussy cut some flowers on the banner and the postage from other papers in the pack.  Finally, I applied some liquid pearls around the card and on the Lacey Circle.

' Follow your feelings' by Marta

Hello in September ;)
It's Marta here.
Today I wish to show you my art journal pages. I created my spread in an old book. You can purchase book like that in every second hand store. Pages are old and brownish which I love.
When you will look closer you will be able to see that I have used my book upside down :) I like this kind of effect.
I used images from beautiful paper pad BoBunny (Enchanted Garden).
I sticked the cut outs from the papers and created some sort of composition.

You can also see beautiful Petaloo Paper Doilies. It added extra dimention to the project.
The brown colour around the edges was created with Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays.
I love how this turned out - like an old, rusted image.
Here is more phots as I could not limit myslef to only 2 or 3 as I loooved them all.
Those cute wording are from Cosmo Cricket - tiny text stickers.

Mindful Layout

Hello!!!

Hope all of you are well!  Here is my project with the beautiful kit we received for September.

This is a layout of sorts.  It has no picture to it.  I wanted to try something different.  The purpose is that I will place this near my desk and the colours, shapes and embellishments will be a reminder to take a few minutes out and think of something nice.

The base was created with 12x12 paper on cardstock, layered with coarse texture paste using the lovely star stencil by Prima in this months kit. I also added some spraying....always need to spray!

The BoBunny "enchanted garden" papers were cut down into random different sizes and layered over a craft paper dollie which also got the spray effect.  The main feature is one of the empty wooden packaging boxes that hold wooden pieces by Prima.  This was painted and papered.  I added a glittered Kaisercraft wooden shell and some other embellishments.
For finishing touches are Prima flowers and gem stones.  For some added interest I added Distress Glitter to the flowers :)
I hope you enjoyed this project and that is inspires you to have a play with these products.  Take care and see you for my second project for September soon!

'You are my fairy'- mixed media canvas by Sylwia

   Hello Arty Souls!

Welcome in September:) Holidays are finished, kids are back at school, so do you have more time for crafting now? Well, for me there is no difference, my little daughter is keeping me very busy ;) However when she goes to bed, its Mummy Time!!!!  I am tired but still have energy to create:)
This time I decided to go back to my favourite art- mixed media on canvas and my precious fairy girls:)

I used following materials:

Acrylics
Stamps


I started with gluing pieces of paper to the canvas. Than I layered some gesso with a stencil.I chose my favourite pieces of paper for the skirt. I outlined  my girl and then I painted rest of the background in pink.

 

I love turquoise eyes:)


I added flowers to the quilt skirt. I love the combination of green and pink.

 I made the wings out of the paper doilies.


I hope you enjoyed the project :)

Love,
Sylwia

Every Princess...

Hi! It's Sandie here with the first post featuring our September DT kit, and today I am sharing a mixed media canvas. 
I covered a 6x8" slim canvas with Bo Bunny's Enchanted Garden papers and whitewashed them with a layer of watered down gesso. I dried it quickly with my heat gun before adding some butterflies with the Prima Butterflies stencil and modeling paste. I then added a kraft doily and gave the whole canvas another layer of gesso
I then used some spray inks to add colour. 
I drew some hills with a black paint Sharpie and shaded them with Gelatos - adding some little toadstools with a stamp I had in my stash. 
The house is made from card. I covered the bottom piece with tissue paper and drew the door and windows. Then I used gelatos to colour it all. The title is made up from various different stamp sets - Stampendous Small Typewriter clear stampsUrban Stamps Typewriter & Bo Bunny Upper Case wooden stamps.
I added some stars and then applied Emperor's gold Silks to a few of the butterflies, the sentiment and the stars. Finally, I applied some liquid pearls around the canvas. 
Products Used:
Slim Canvas
Bo Bunny - Enchanted Garden 6x6" paper pad
Gesso, Mod Podge, Modeling Paste

Have a fabulous day!!

Spell Book

Hello!

Today I have a spell book to share with you that I created from our August kit.  This was an old fabric covered lilac note book that I had that had truly seen better days.  It was time to re-purpose.



I started by painting the covering with black craft paint and spraying with black marble Dylusions.  I added some of the black spray to texture paste and created a 3d effect with paste and stencil on the cover.  To add more dimension I randomly rubbed over my Versamark and sprinkled on some of the Lindys Stamp Gang embossing powder.  I used papers from the Graphic 45 An Eerie Tale to cover the binding and the inside of the book.

Prima flowers were sprayed along with some leaves and grouped and adhered.  I also used a Tim Holtz fragment in the center, this was set in place while the paste was still wet.  I finished this with a Halloween charm.



I added lace, charms, painted chipboard and a die cut hinge from Tim Holtz grunge paper.  The aged look on the pages was achieved by spraying  Tattered Angels Simply Sheer in rich brown.  I allowed the pages to curl when I used my heat gun to dry.

Thank you for visiting and looking.

Enchanting Halloween Tag

Hello! It's Sandie here today, with my final project for August featuring Graphic45's An Eerie Tale 8"x 8" paper pad. If you missed the Paper Bag Album and Halloween Card I made this month you can see them HERE and HERE

Today I am sharing a Halloween tag


The tag is 5.5" long and 3.75" wide and I've covered it with a layer of paper. Then I layered on some black lace and purple ribbon before adhering the sentiment with 3D foam dots. I cut a postage stamp and pumpkin from the papers and also adhered them with 3D foam. The flower is from Prima Marketing's Time Traveler collection


I do hope you have enjoyed my creations from the August kit and I hope to see you all again next month for a brand new showcasing of the September Cardz'n'Scrapz design team kit.
