LBBS~Dream Canvas

Hello, crafty friends, today I have a lil' Mixed Media Canvas using one of the amazing Mixed Media Images that Olga has in the Little Blue Button Shop! I used the Angel digi stamp
Isn't she beautiful??? 
Be sure to check out the other amazing Mixed Media Images in the shop here

Here's my canvas:  I started by applying texture paste thru a TCW Reverse Chicken Wire stencil. Once dry, I sprayed some color sprays in Orange, yellow and red and stamped some shapes for added texture for my background. 

I watercolored the ANGEL image with Derwent Inktense pencils and fussy cut out. I adhered her to my canvas with gel medium and 3D foam tape. I finished by adhering different feathers I stamped, die cut and shaped/curled. I finished with a simple sentiment and voila! :o)

I sure hope I've inspired you today. 
Happy craftin'!

Happy Sunday everyone! I'm sharing a tag I made for STAMPlorations Sunday Stencil #101. The designers have created some fabulous mixed media projects to inspire you. You can find them  here so be sure to check them out and leave them some luv! :o) 
Today I used ARTplorations  Emanations Stencil along with sentiments from Bold Sentiments: Explore STAMPlorations Stamp Set. 
A pretty quick and easy background using a watercolor paper tag and some Distress Oxide inks applied thru the Emanations Stencil. I splattered some White acrylic paint and let dry. I used some Brushos in Orange and emerald green on an airplane diecut and applied some washi tape from my stash onto the tag. Stamped sentiments from the
Bold Sentiments: Explore STAMPlorations Stamp Set and used foam tape for added dimension to adhere the sentiments and airplane. Some ribbon and button finished off the tag.

STAMPlorations~June Mixed Media Challenge

Happy Sunday everyone, it's that time again for a new challenge over at
The theme is always anything mixed media goes, except a card! Just remember you must use at least one stencil (any brand) in your project. You have until the end of the month to play!   

This month I used some fun new products from STAMPlorations. :o)
I started by playing with some Distress Oxides in Wilted Violet and Peeled Paint and the new Curve Play ARTplorations Stencil to create my background. 

I then stamped the 3 different sized butterflies from the Trendy Butterflies 2 set onto text paper and colored the 2 smallest with the same Distress Oxide Inks used in the background and fussy cut them out. I layered them onto the tag for added dimension and stamped the sentiments from Happy Happy Birthday and Gorgeous Bold Sentiment sets in Jet Black Archival Ink. A little doodled border finished it off. 

I sure hope I've inspired you to get crafty and join in our challenge.
