Bearly A Fall Angel


It's Friday Sweet Friends

It's been non-stop rain here and a horrible storm is on the way (they are calling it a "potential historic event).  Sending hugs and prayers to everyone dealing with all the weather issues all over the U.S.  

I thought I would do something fun and decided to share this card I made using this fabulously adorable image by Artist Sandra Caldwell.  This one is called: #1143 Bearly A Fall Angel and he's available in Sandra's Etsy Shop.

Here's the link:




I colored him with Copics and the colors I used are:

C3, 5, 7
E23,25,27,29

Flower Pot Mouse


Happy Monday Sweet Friends

Today I am sharing my DT project using this adorable mouse from Artist Sandra Caldwell.  I decided to create an altered block with this cutie on one side and I will be adding another image on the other side sometime later this week.  It's just fun to have these projects around my craft room so I can enjoy looking at them all the time.  This sweet image is called:  #1096 - Flower Pot Mouse





I used Copics to color this cutie and I used the following Copic Colors:

C3, 5, 7
E11, 13
RV55
YG21, 23, 25

To create this project I:

Painted a 3.5" x 4" block.
Added the blue background paper.
Distressed the edges with brown ink.  
Created the ground with more cardstock.
Used Copics to color the ground.
Fussy cut the mouse.
Colored with Copics.
Added the Ric Rac cardstock strip.  
Inked the edges with more ink.

I will share the other side of this project once I get it done.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I appreciate all your comments.

I Dream of Paris - Altered Mixed Media Canvas

Happy Sunday Sweet Friends

I hope your weekend has been going well.  Sure been praying for everyone dealing with all the Hurricane Matthew.  I am hoping things settle down soon.  

It's time for this month's Mixed Media World's Challenge and this one ia all about Mixed Media and/or Assemblage. 




 I really enjoyed creating this project.  It's ironic how I started creating a totally different project because the first one just wasn't falling into place for me.  I decided to create something with a Paris theme.  This is an 8" x 8" canvas and I used a lot of different things.  It's currently almost midnight and I am exhausted so I will be back in the morning with more details on this project.

**************************************

Good morning Sweet Ladies

I really enjoyed making this and this is how I created it:

*I used an 8" x 8" canvas.
*Added a coat of Gesso.
*Covered front with left over pieces of cardstock from the Angel Company.  It's one of my favorites which is why I only had scraps and unfortunately they went out of business.
*I used scraps of tissue paper around the outside edges of canvas.
*Used two stencils - one a script and the other floral for the background along with molding paste.
*I used a floral die cut and cut out 8 images.  Used four on each corner.  Glued them  on top of each other to create more depth.  
*Sealed entire canvas with a coat of Clear Gel Medium.
*I used a lot of broken chains (cheap - not gold - LOL) to create a border around the edges.  
*Covered it all with a light coat of Gesso.
*Used Rich Espresso Metallic Paint for the inside edges on top of canvas.
*Once dry added all the embellishments.

If you have any questions please let me know.  I am still new to the Mixed Media/Altered Art world but love it.
