Hi, my lovely crafty friends, I hope you all had enjoyed your weekend. This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, our theme for you is "It's a Dog's Life". I was inspired to create a mixed media canvas embellished with the die cut using Tim Holtz Sizzix Mixed Media 4 Thinlits Die and two cute dogs using Tim Holtz Rubber Stamp Crazy Dogs.

To start this project, I first applying a layer of crackle paint on this 4" X 6" canvas. After the paint was dry, I applied various shades of Distress Paints on the canvas. 

For the texture on the background, I die cut the embellishments using Tim Hotlz Mixed Media Thinlits Die and cardstock, then glued them on the canvas. I distressed the edges of the canvas and the dimensional part of the texture using the blending tool and ink pads. 

On a piece of white cardstock, I stamped the dog images and the sentiment using Simon Says Stamp black ink pad. The images were colored using  Daniel Smith watercolor and a pen brush. After the dog, tennis ball and bone image were colored and cut out, I pasted them on the canvas using Tombow Adhesive Tabs for the dimensional effect. 

Some sentiments were added using Tim Holtz Big Chat Stickers and Alpha Part as the final touch.

Hello, my lovely crafty friends, I hope you all had a great weekend. This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, our theme is "NOT A CARD". Yes! Simply create something that is not a card and join us!

I created an art journal page using Tim Holtz Distress Spray Stain on the background and decorated the page with Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Botanical Layers Paperie.

I really love Tim Holtz Botanical Layers and use these paper flowers, birds and butterflies a lot on this page. To start this project, I sprayed Tim Holtz Distress Spray Stain on the background of this page. I made this art journal with watercolor paper in size 9" X 6".  

The background was stamped using Tim Holtz stamps and various Simon Says Stamp Ink Pads. I also randomly rubbed on some text and images on the background.

The flower and bird images were layered and pasted on the page using Tombow Mono Glue and Adhesive Tabs to create the dimensional effect. I also rubbed some random images on the paper embellishments.

Some sentiments were attached using Tim Hotlz Chit Chat Stickers. Around the edges of this art journal page, I first dabbed red then black Distress Paint for distressed effect. 

I really love how easy it is to create the beautiful journal page using the Botanical Layers. I hope you love my creation, and got inspired to create something not a card and join us! Can't wait to see what you create!
