Don't forget to FLY!

Vicki is Hosting our Word Challenge at
Just Us Girls  and our Gallery is going to be 
'Full of wonderful butterfly creations'
It's our first for August and that means we have a 
New Guest Designer. 
So happy to have an 'Aussie' and it is
Cathy Roffey. Check out her blog Here 
Welcome Cathy.

We all love making butterfly cards don't we???
With so many choices of what to use and how
I decided to stencil (AALL&Create) my background
with Tim's oxides then put it back 
and stencil again with Opaque Crackle Texture Paste
Adding a bit of background stamping for interest.
I die cut my Kaisercraft butterfly then
covered it with Black Brusho's
which has given it  subtle blue tones.
I then added Transparent Gloss
which gave it a nice sheen.
Slightly popped it after adding the sentiment from
Tim's Small Talk.
'Fly' over and see what our Guest Cathy
and our Amazing Designers created
and I am sure you will want to add yours
to our Gallery this week. 
You could be our Chic of the Week and
and chosen as our Guest in October.

Mixed Media Time at Creative Artiste

It's time for our new Anything Goes Challenge at

This is a Mixed Media piece that just came together
as I went along with nothing specific in mind.

 It began by inking the background with
a variety of Lindy's Magical's, lots of
Nuvo Shuimmer Powders and stencilling
from AALL&Create
with AA Metallic Gold Rush paint.
The butterfly is from Kaisercraft and
was sitting on my workbench.

Lots of additions that I forgot to photograph -
some of these items are chipboard, cheescloth,
more stencilling, art stones.
Painted the edges with the Gold Rush Paint.
I did add some clear crackle but lost it's way.

On the butterfly there are gilding flakes,
 Magical's and a sparkly gem.

Flower is from my stash, adding a pearl spray to the back
and coloured thread to the stem.
It is so easy to get carried away and keep on adding
products for colour or dimension.

Next month I am hoping to created something
very different. I have had it in my mind for
a few months now - just hasn't eventuated yet.
Will see what happens for next months MMprofect.
Pop over and see what the Creative Artists
(the Design Team that is) had fun with.
We would love to see you add yours

Our theme is always
"Anything Mixed Media Goes"
with multiple mediums on your project.

Till next time -
