Creative Artiste Mixed Media Challenge #44



Happy Friday to all our crafty friends, followers and visitors and welcome to 


Thank you to everyone who shared their wonderful projects with us for Challenge #43 last month.
Choosing a winner and Top Three was very difficult. The winner's post can be found here. Have a look to see if you were successful.




This month our wonderful sponsor is the fabulous

Tando Creative



Our theme this month is, as always,
"Anything Mixed Media Goes"
Please make sure you use multiple mediums on 
your  projects.


Today I have a gift bag and card to share with you using the Graphic 45 Collection Imagine.  Love this collection and it worked beautifully for what I had in mind.

These little gift bags a great as they double up as a envelope for the card as well as giving you something top pop you gift in.  This was being sent across to Western Australia for my mum to give to someone who is turning 50 so I have left ribbon decorating to her. 

My mixed media products I have used on the card where Nuvo Mousse, I used two colours when passing it over my template followed by some Prima Blooms sprays once it had dried.

I have inked the edges with Tim Holtz distress ink Old Linen.



Love the Hero Arts template, its a great mix of letters and numbers.




Usually I recycle paper bags that I get at the shop, but it seems since we have gone green we are having to bring our own and I don't really end up with any anymore.  I purchased this one from one of the cheap junk shops.


I have fussy cut the paper and layered using foam tape to give some dimension.



 I don't know which range it was, but it was a older Kaiser sticker sheet, apparently we only get the number 1 - 10, no zero which wasn't very helpful.  So I had to used the number 10 and cut it down so I could have the number 40.  I think Kaiser should re-think their sticker sheets and add a zero.




 Product use:

Prima - Bloom Sprays and Flowers
Kaiser Craft - Sticker
Tim Holtz - Distress ink Old Linen
Nuvo - Embellishment Mousse
Graphic 45 - Imagine Collection
Kindy Glitz
Bazzill - White Cardstock
Memory Box - metal die 
Hero Arts - Stencil

Thanks for stopping by, I hope Ive given you some inspiration and look forward to seeing your work in our gallery.

Until next month, take care.

Creative Artiste's #42nd Challenge

Welcome to Creative Artiste Challenge #42

Happy Friday to all my crafty friends and welcome to
Creative Artiste's #42nd Challenge.


Thank you to everyone who shared their wonderful projects with us for Challenge #41 last month.
Choosing a winner and Top Three was very difficult. If you would love to see the winner please pop on over to the blog.



This month our wonderful sponsor is the fabulous
Who are offering a $25 prize to our winner.


Our theme this month is, as always,
"Anything Mixed Media Goes"
Please make sure you use multiple mediums on your  projects.


For this month's Challenge I did a mixed media Scrapbooking page of my daughter and her friend.


I've used a watercolour sheet that has been printed with a resist flower pattern along with gold foil.  I have used Prima Bloom mists in Tangerine and Sunshine followed by texture paste.  Once this was dry I have used some old numbers that I had laying around.   Funny enough I created this background a few months ago but hadn't yet had the chance to use it.  When going through my photos I thought this one worked beautifully with it.


Here in the close up you can just see the little spots of gold.  I have also stamped using archival ink.  The pearl flourish I've used is a really old Prima one that I have jazzed up.  I have also done a lot of splattering of paint to build up texture.


And last but not least, I have used these beautiful new Prima flowers from the Flirty Fleru collection.  


Thanks for dropping by, hope you have enjoyed my share for this month and we look forward to seeing all of your creations.

Until next time!!!

Creative Artiste Challenge #40

Welcome to Creative Artiste Challenge #40



Happy Friday to all our crafty friends, followers and visitors and welcome to 
Creative Artiste's #39th Challenge.


Thank you to everyone who shared their wonderful projects with us for Challenge #40 last month and thank you for all the fabulous entries. It made choosing a winner and Top Three very difficult.

To check out last months winners pop on over to the Blog.



Its only fitting that I scrap a photo of my husband and I when we visited Hobart, we weren't exactly dressed for the weather at the Top of Mt Wellington but the views were spectacular.  I am fortunate enough to fly across there this week in the hope to getting to see snow for the first time not to mention get some great pics. 




























I have been having some fun using the Kaiser foam art paper, along with the Heartfelt Creations large Peony die and stamp.   These turn flowers turn out so beautifully, if you haven't tried it, give it ago.  I also used to different Lindy's embossing powders, I love the softness you can achieve with these powders.  

I also used a 13Arts template, I think it worked beautifully with the background paper.

Well fellow crafters, sorry this is short and sweet however I need to get this post done before I catch my plane,  and as mums  there always seems so much to do before we head off on a holiday.  

Happy Scrapping!!!!
