Mixed Media Monthly Challenge – October

Can you believe it’s already October? Time flies. The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge for October is using inspiration from the Mood Board below. It’s so perfect for October and for Fall.

The sponsor for the month is the fabulous Stampotique and they are providing a wonderful gift certificate of $30.00 to the randomly chosen winner.

And we are thrilled to welcome Guest Designer Julie Steed this month to play along with our challenge this month, too! (She’s amazing.)

Being the kitty lover that I am, I used the cute (but scary) Stampotique Kitty Squad to create my square canvas panel below. Love these creepy, cute kitties.

It’s cute, huh? Here’s how I made it:

Prime a 6 x 6″ canvas panel using black gesso. Add texture with Neon acrylic paints and bubble wrap, mesh, string and whatever else you have lying around. No kidding! Each layer should be dried prior to adding a new color. Paint different colored circles using whatever circular items you may have. I first use a pencil, then the paint. Wink of Stella in Black is added to the inside of each circle. So shimmery!

Wood veneer stars are coated with black gesso, dried, and small amounts of glue are added to the top. Before the glue is dry, Rock Candy Distress Glitter is added to the top of each star. Then each star is adhered to the canvas.

Believe it or not I actually Copic colored each of the kitties from the stamp set. Yes, I did. It took a while. I probably should have watercolored them, but I really wanted a type of vibrancy  that I *thought* would be easier to achieve with Copic markers. HA!! I was wrong. Took me forever. I have no clue what I’m doing. I’m just glad I didn’t ruin it.

Did I also mention that I also dislike fussy cutting? Aaaaand I did that, too. *sigh*

The last step is to add a little greenery for my kitties. This is done with a little corrugate cardboard and more neon paint. It’s adhered with modeling paste.

Here’s a slightly different view:

Happy Veterans Day

Hello my friends! Wishing all of you a very Happy Veterans Day! I’m over on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today sharing a card that I made for this Veterans Day.

I decided to make a card based on poppies and the poem “In Flanders Fields” by John McCrae. I love poppies so much (since they’re so prolific here in California), but just knowing that they have such a historical significance makes them so much more special. I used one of my very favorite Penny Black stamps Blooming Garden (30-155) and gave it a little more dimension.

Here’s a special peek of my Veterans Day card:

If I could give this card to each one of the people that served before me, with me, and after me…I would. God bless each and every one of you for your service and sacrifice to this great country and to all of our allies as well.

Please stop by the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog to read more about this card, how I made it, what supplies were used, etc.

Wishing ALL of my fellow veterans a very Happy Veterans Day.

It’s a New Card Monday

Hey there! It’s a New Card Monday!! I’m so proud of the one that I have to share on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog today. I gotta tell ya, I’m not always super thrilled by the cards that I make. Sometimes I like parts of them, sometimes I like the technique, or sometimes I wish I could just throw them away (it happens), but I really do LOVE the way that this card turned out. Lots of cool stuff going on with it, too.

Here’s your sneak peek:

This card is really dimensional, shiny, shimmery and super pretty. I hope that you’ll all go over to the Scrapbook Adhesives blog to see the whole thing. :)

I’ll also have a UStream this week with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® THIS Wednesday at 6:00 PM PST. But check out THEIR blog just in case things change.  Maybe “New Card Monday” will be something I’ll have to do every week….hmmm….I’ll give it some thought. 

Wishing you ALL an amazing week. xoxo
