Mixed Media Altered Wall Decor

Hey, my dear crafty friends, welcome back! Our family just had a vacation to Las Vegas and San Diego last two weeks and we really enjoyed it. I hope you all have a great summer so far, too. For the new challenge this week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, we want to see some special papers - from specialty stamping paper to glitter, corrugated to extra heavy mixed media to tissue – special papers abound! So please use something other than regular patterned paper or cardstock on your page. 

I used some corrugated cardboard and sparkling sheets on my project this week.

The base of this wall decor was the cardboard from the package of Tim Holtz Minis Burlap Panels.

I layered Tim Holtz Textured Surfaces that were all distressed on the background and pasted them with Tombow glue.

The Tim Holtz tapes, stickers and rub-ons were added to decorate this project.

I die cut some embellishments with Tim Holtz 2015 Deco Sheets and layered them with Prima Flower using Adhesive Dots.

To soften the color scheme of this wall decor, I applied Gesso randomly as the final touch.

Art Journal l Heart U

Welcome, my dear crafty friends, are you ready for a new challenge? This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, we want to challenge you inspired by "I".  From ice cream to indigo blue stamps, and ink to ice resin – this week the letter i is our inspiration! 

I was inspired to create an "I heart U" art journal page with some Iced Enamels.

I have some beautiful Iced Enamels and I think they are perfect for this week's theme.

After applying Gesso and creating the background with Distress Paints, I added some patterns with Tim Holtz Layering Stencil and Distress Spray Stains,

Prima Flowers Resins and Tim Holtz embellishments were added after the cheese cloth was 
attached on the page using Tombow glue. 

The Iced Enamels were added, and the edges of the page were distressed to finish off this project.
