newchallenge sssm

Hello, friends, this week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, we challenge you to use sprays on your project. There are so many sprays available from lots of different manufacturers. You can also make your own to suit your project!

I was inspired to create a mixed media tag this week.

Distress Spray Stain is one of my favorite coloring product and was used on most of my mixed media project.

On the background of this #8 tag, I first pasted the Tim Holtz patterned paper then sprayed Distress Spray Stain over Tim Holrz Layering Stencil, and embossed the pattern with ColorBox Clear Embossing Powder. The edges of the tag was distressed with ColorBox ink pad.

I layered the Prima Flowers on the tag using Tombow Glue. Some motivational sentiments from Tim Holtz Small Talk Stickers were added using Tim Holtz Small Talk Stickers.

Some Tim Holtz metal embellishments were attached on the tag. For the last step, I tied the bakers twine to finish off this project. Hope you got inspired to create your project with sprays and share with us.

Mixed Media Art Journal

Hi, everyone, I'd like to share a mixed media art journal page that I created few weeks ago featuring ColorBox® Chalk Ink and Wood Block Stamp. I always love blending different colors and mixing various medias on my art journal.

To start this project, I mixed ColorBox® Spritzers with water on the craft sheet, then applied the mixture on the background of the journal page using a paint brush.

Apply different shades of Spritzers and water mixture to create random pattern and texture on the page.

Stamp the images on the page with ColorBox® Chalk Ink and background stamps. Stamp the edges of the page with Chalk inks, and distress the edges using Colorbox® Color Blender.

The sentiment was stamped with ColorBox Wood Block Stamp Love and ColorBox® Chalk Ink. I really love the gorgeous pink and purple color scheme on this project. It's perfect to document or journal for Valentine's day.

To finish off the this art journal page, I adhered some flower and resin embellishments around the sentiment.

I always love creating with bright colors. On this art journal page, I first stenciled the background using Dina Wakely Leafy Stencil and Prima Flowers Modeling Paste. Then I colored the page with Distress Paints in different shades.

The sentiment was adhered using Tim Holtz Alpha Parts and Tombow Glue. The image was stamped with Tim Holtz Stamp Pen and Pencil, and Memento Black Ink. The beautiful sunshine was created with Distress Paint and water mixture.

I added some metal embellishments and Tim Holtz rubs on to create more interest. I really love the gorgeous ray of sunshine on the beautiful image. I hope you got inspired to create a sunshine themed project, and share it with us.
