Mixed Media Tag Wish

newchallenge sssm

Hello, friends! Let's take the new challenge and "MAKE a WISH"! We usually ’Make A Wish’ before blowing out the birthday candles, but you could create something with a wish in mind. I wish I was lying on a beach listening to the waves and reading a good book. What is YOUR wish? Can't wait to see what you create!

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

Tags are always one of my favorite projects to create. On this tag, I embossed the background with Tim Holtz Stamp, Clearsnap Inkpad and ColorBox Embossing Powder. The texture was created using modeling paste.

To make the sentiment, I pasted the Alpha Parts letter stickers "wish" after colored them with Distress Paints.

Some Prima Flowers and Tim Holtz metal embellishments were adhered on the tag using Tombow Mono Glue.

Art Journal Felt That

newchallenge sssm
Hello, my lovely blog friends, welcome to another new challenge for Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. This week, let's create with "FELT". This trendy material can be use in different ways and on different surfaces. I had so much fun create with various colors of felt and I am looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

We are showcasing products from the Simon Says Stamp ‘Spring Plush’ Release. The felt is fabulous quality and the stamps and dies are adorable, CLICK HERE to see the whole release.

I always love to experiment mixed medias and colors. This week, I really enjoy die cutting and sewing these felt hearts on my art journal using the Simon Says Stamp Heart Wafer Dies and Big Shot machine.

Before sewing the embellishments on the journal page, I stenciled the background with Dylusions Ink Spray and Tim Holtz Layering Stencil. When sewing the die cut felt hearts, I first glued them on the journal page and poked holes along the holes on the hearts through the page using Tim Holtz Retractable needle tool. It's much easier to sew the felt hearts after the paper was poked with holes.

There are some Tim Holtz metal embellishments and Big Chat Stickers were attached on this page. To create a vibrant color scheme, I dabbed Distress Paints on this page.

Mixed Media Wall Hanging Beauty

newchallenge sssm

Hi, my dear friends, welcome back for another challenge! I really had a great time with my family this weekend so I hope you all did, too. This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, we challenge you to use embossing folders, heat embossing and embossing pastes on your project.

I was inspired to create a wall hanging with both heat embossing and dry embossing.

I decided to use both heat embossing and dry embossing on my mixed media canvas wall hanging for this week's challenge.

After applying some Modeling Paste to create texture on the background of the canvas, I pasted a piece of card stock that was embossed with Tim Holtz Bingo Embossing Folder on the canvas.

I applied Modeling Paste over the layering stencil using a palette knife from Faber-Castell Gelatos tool set. The edges and corners of this canvas were colored with Distress Paints and heat embossed with ColorBox Clear Embossing Powder.

I glued the Tim Holtz Quote Band Finding and sentiment stickers on the background.

The flowers and metal embellishments and sentiment stickers were distressed with Distress Paints,

Some crackle paint was applied on the canvas for more texture.
