About Me

Welcome to my blog

I started this blog in April 2012 so I could join Challenges. I am now on some design teams. I hope you like my cards. I started stamping in 1995 but my cards are still mostly cute.
Thank you to those who have joined as followers and to those who comment.
Unfortunately because of spammers I have had to put moderation on the comments. I will approve them as soon as possible, this also means I don't miss any.
I don't always get a chance to reply to all comments but I read them all when I approve them and I really appreciate you taking the time to give your comment.
The lovely banner was made especially for me by Amanda at Faery Ink Art & Design when I won her first blog challenge. family:";">

More Mixed Media - black

November challenge at More Mixed Media is anything goes with the option of using black - a little or a lot

I made this journal cover in a class at Mad for Markers given by Emma but kept the photo to add to my blog now for the November sample. (The photo is not too clear but it wouldn't fit on the scanner)

Spread black gesso over cover with a credit card.
Spread white gesso over part of the cover with a credit card.
Added finger marks and dots with left over white gesso.
Sammi stamped the stamp for me as my hands were too sore.
I coloured part of the stamp with Prismacolor pencils.
(I forgot to note the name of the stamp, it was one Emma lent us)
Wrote sentiment
Added different washi tapes.
Coloured white lace flowers to match the pink in the flower in her hair and layered on top.

The sentiment says:
Sometimes we just need to feel the wind in our hair and the light on our face.

I hope you will go over to the blog and join in the challenge.

I would like to add my journal cover to the following:

A Inky Mess 15 - anything mixed media

Altered Eclectics - anything altered/mixed media

CCC Digi Creations 84 - must use flowers

Inspiration Destination 137 - anything goes

Love to Scrap 103 - anything goes

Rhedds Creative Spirit November challenge - altered art / mixed media

The Artistic Stamper Creative Team - use a quote - must have rubber stamping
(My quote is handwritten.  Have added rubber stamp)

We love to Create - anything mixed media/creative
