Mixed Media Halloween Treat Bag

My dear crafty friends, hope you all enjoyed your weekend. Halloween is just a few days away, and while not everyone will be celebrating, surely you all like to be inspired by treats! This week, join us at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge to create a treat. From a sweet gift bag to making a crafty treat for a friend, making a candy inspired card or journaling about your favorite desserts – we can’t wait to see what kind of a treat you are inspired to craft this week.

I was inspired to create a Halloween treat bag for my children.

Natalie and Christopher asked me to make Halloween treat bags for them and I found that brown bags are very easy to create with Halloween theme.

I distressed the edges of the bag and most of the embellishments with black Distress Paint, and pasted a piece of tissue wrap on the bag using Gel Medium. The layer under the image was embossed with Tim Holtz embossing folder and distressed with Distress Paint.

The sentiment and the cute image were cut out from Holtz Idea-ology Paper Stash Sensonal. I also added some fun elements such as Rosette Flowers, a clip and a Seam Binding ribbon which were all distressed with Distress Paints.
Natalie and Christopher love this bag and I hope you enjoyed this project, too.

Clearsnap StencilGirl Blog Hop

Welcome to Clearsnap and StencilGirl Blog Hop. We are sharing many inspirational projects featuring the inks and stencils this week. And there's a giveaway for you to try these goodies. Have fun!

I created an art journal page for this blog hop using Tangled Tribal Hand Large Stencil,  Abigail, A Timeless Woman and Feather Stencil from StencilGirl

The background of this page was colored with layers of different inks. I sprayed the first layer with Izink inks and water. 

After applying a thin layer of Gesso randomly on the background to soften the Izink inks, I sprayed various colors of ColorBox® Spritzers over the stencils. I made the woman's face behind and the hand, and the hand holding the feather.  The feather was added Smooch® for beautiful sparkle.

There are some images and patterns were stamped using Mix'd Media Inx® and Pigment: ColorBox® Petal Point®

I pressed the Chalk: Cat's Eye® ink pad directly on the face to make the teardrops.

I really love these fabulous stencils and all the inks from StencilGirl and Clearsnap. And hope this project inspires you to create using these products. 

There are $25 Gift Certificate from StencilGirl and Products shown here from Clearsnap for you to win. ALL comments left the entire week are eligible to win! The more you comment the more chances you have to win! Comments close Sunday, October 26th at 11:59PM Central Time. Good luck!

Happy crafting! Meihsia ^_^

Mixed Media Hold Musical Instrument Tag

Hey, my dear blog friends! I hope you all enjoyed your weekend. I had a wonderful time at Comic Con Dallas this Sunday. It's not our children's first time to Comic Con but they are still excited to see those fun costumes and cosplay. Now for our crafty fun, we're having ANYTHING GOES challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. Yes! You know the drill here – no rules just crafting! Enjoy making something new and share it with us.

I created a mixed media tag using the new Tim Holtz Carved Instrument Stamps.

Both Natalie and Christopher love to play musical instruments and I love these Tim Holtz Carved Instrument Stamps, so I decided to use these stamps to create a mixed media tag this week.

I covered the tag with a layer of Gesso and colored it with Distress Paints. The texture on the background of this tag was stenciled using Tim Holtz Layering Stencil and Modeling Paste.

Those two stamped instrument images were cut and attached on the tag with Foam Squares to give a touch of dimension. I added some Tim Holtz metal embellishments which were covered with Gesso, and colored and distressed with Distress Paints.

The edges of this tag were also distressed with Distress Paints. I love the beautiful color combo the textures.

I hope you love my creation and got inspired to create something with any of your craft supplies.
