Cherish! Dream! Live!

Hello and Welcome to my Saturday post for
Just Us Girls 
Maria is our Host for Trend Week.

and chose 'To Make the Sentiment the Focal Point'

Something a little different from me this week.
No watercolours, no powders -
I wanted to ink up my new
 Summer Time Versa Fine Clair ink and found a
nice sentiment from Kaisercraft. I cut this out with
MB Pinpoint Double Frame die.
Did you notice a stamped flower behind it?
I knew I had some lovely orange DP from
an age ago by SU.
 I cut this to fit on the front of my
 SU Tip Top Taupe card stock.
I then inked up a small piece of the same card stock
with the Hero Arts Unicorn Pigment Ink
and cut another small piece of  leathergrain paper
popping them all up together.
Added a strip of ribbon and a button to finish.

Pop over and see how our Guest Emma
and the Team chose to focus on their Sentiment.
Hope to see you in our Gallery this week.
Thanks for dropping by

Canvas-ing for Random Arts

It's with great pleasure I  am able to show you my
first post for a New Blog I was invited to join.
It's called Random Arts - and local to me.
You can find it Here  The Store is owned and run by
the Very Talented Amanda Mason and our 
First Inspiration Challenge began on the 1st July.
All the details regarding the Challenge are Here

Our Mood Board


I will be showing two project a month and my first one is
what we call a 'free post' where we have a free hand as to
what we make as long as we use products from The Store

I decided to just have a little play with some of the products
here by making a small canvas.

Sorry for the quality of this photo but I took it
on my phone and it is the only one I have.
The stencil is from AB Studio and
Tim Holtz Distress Grit Paste (super stuff)
I then added some colour with Art Alchemy Metallic Paint
then a splash of colour to the background with
Nuvo Shimmer Powder in Storm Cloud and some random text,
laces with a touch of Art Alchemy Wax for colour
 and cheesecloth. Also a few black flowers to the back.
I then got sidetracked with my Bo Bunny butterfly and forgot 
to photograph what I was doing. 
Applied some gesso first then while it was wet
added some Little Birdie Mica Powder, 
Art Alchemy Waxes in Rich Copper and Vintage Gold.
Topped with a painted cabachon. 
As the photo has quite a bit of black I though it needed
a little more so added five tiny pearls (one is hiding) to the lace.

Here's a few close ups!

These are the items I used from Random Arts Online Store
in no particular order
Finnabair_Waxes Vintage Gold/Rich Copper
Little Birdie Natural Mica Powder
Bo Bunny Laser Cut Butterfly Chipboard
Other products used from my stash.
