Button and yarn from my stash,
Ribbon - SU, tiny heart punch.
As it happens I am heading north for Mother's Day

catching up with other family too.

Imagination is ART!

Our New Anything Goes Challenge at 

I still have my girlfriend visiting and we had a day
of getting messy! We had a great time and
introduced her to the gel press to name just one.
And so our Mixed Media makes began.
We decided to create something similar
Here is hers.

As you can see they are pretty similar.
A few close ups from mine!

As I said earlier we had a play with the gel press
and my background is from that.
Added stenciling, stamping, cheesecloth,
art stones and some waxing.
Just a quick post again. So much happening atm.
Our visitors will be moving on to more travels soon
as I then head north to spend Mother's Day with
one of my daughters, grandchildren and their
young toddlers. So looking forward to seeing
our great granddaughter for the first time. 
Head over and see amazing Mixed Media
from the rest of the Team and hope you
get time to create for our Gallery this month.
Thanks for visitng

Guest Designer at Try It On Tuesday

I was thrilled to be invited to be a 
Guest Designer at  Try It On Tuesday
after being chosen as a Top 5 at a recent challenge.
How awesome that their New Challenge is to
Use a Stencil.

Those that know me are well aware of how I
love using my stencils is all different ways.
For my Guest card I used a fabulous stencil from
Scrapmats - ST9088.
I started by adding texture paste to my heavy card base.
Once dry I got out my Lindy's Magical's
and let the colours run through the cracks
to achieve the gorgeous colours.
My dragonfly is from ARTplorations, die cutting
the main image from leftovers on my glass mat.
Cut one again only using the wings and body
for added dimension.
She was popped on top of cheesecloth
and finishing with a vellum sentiment
from STAMPlorations. 
Adhered to matching bright card stock.
Have you been over to check how the
talented TIOT Design Team chose to stencil?
Hope so and  inspired you to create yours 
and add to the Gallery.
