Artsy Addicts-Recycled Mini Album & Die~Namites-Valentine Card

Artsy Addicts
Here is my Part 2 of the Recycled Mini Album...using card board from my recycle box.
I finished white washing the pages of my mini....inking the rough edges.
Tearing the photo mats out of Kraft printed paper...white washing with gesso 
and adding plaster with a stencil to give even more texture.
Adding a chipboard cutout of a clock I had in my stash, gluing down
onto the cover...along with punching my holes and binding my mini
with white cording.
Roughly tore out a photo mat just shy of 5 x 7 size
inked edges and glued down.
Now time to finish the album repeating with photo mats.....
adding embellishments, cutouts of paper, staples, etc.
Splashes of glimmer mist.
Finished Mini Album

Love This~Epic Grunge Altered Heart with Wings "Marion Smith Designs"

Hello everyone I am here to share my blog post over on the Marion Smith Designs Blog with a little mixed media altered "Heart with Wings" art piece! This summer my daughter Emilee and I were snapping silly daughter had on cool red lip stick...with a gold studded skull shirt (which she knows I can't stand) ha ha!! 
I just love this one of her yelling OK mom I had enough-so perfect looks so steam punk rocker!
I started with a piece of cardboard traced a heart and wings....using gesso primed the cardboard piece then added some plaster with brick mask. Then grabbing my glimmer mists and inks started coloring heat setting in between colors. When dried added more texture with a thick layer of gesso with a dot fade stencil.
Using Nirvana and Mad Tea Party papers and stamping the doily from the Curious stamp set.
Added some splatters of glimmer mist and tearing holes in the heart shape paper..added some wire mesh to the back and inked edges with glimmer mist. Highlights with Gold Effects Paint and gesso lightly brushed  over raised areas.
Rolled roses from the paper collections...little gems and grunge up gear die cuts.

Lovely texture!!
Junque & Gems by Marion hanging from wire mesh and chains....adored with gems.
Embellishment shots are great for titles tucked around...along with a zip strip with label on the paper..I cut it off and saved it to tuck in around the photo to add a little pop!
There you have it my Mixed Media Altered  Heart with Wings!

Artsy Addicts Blog-Recycled Heart Card-"love"

Recycled Heart Card
Today I am sharing with you all, my recycled heart card...
With Valentine's right around the corner I am trying to get a head start on the Holiday!

I first took a 61/2 x 5 size card base.
Using a Heidi Swapp Heart Stencil and plaster created the heart 
background textured.
Using my Tattered Angels mists...I used them like water color effect.
Along with Tim Holtz stencil Dot Fade and gesso for even more texture.
I cut a heart out of old cardboard, ripped the top layer off.
Painted some gesso over the heart.
Did the same water coloring on the Petaloo flower...with glimmer mist.
Added a little embellishment cut out 
of Mad Tea Party paper collections by Marion Smith.

Marion Smith Designs Blog-Wall Art "Valentine Rose" & Tutorial

My post on the Marion Smith Designs blog....
Good morning today I bring you some Valentine eye candy!!
I have started early creating my own wall art/home decor for our home.
Using the Mad Tea Party paper collection by Marion Smith....and embellishment page
to create my Valentine Rose wall art piece.
I love the shabby chic vintage feel and look...

The lovely embellishment pages from the Mad Tea Party 
paper line works great for wall art, cards, scrapbook pages.

Wall Art Tutorial
Prime wood piece with gesso, add texture with your favorite mask/stencil.
Spray your favorite mist...I used glimmer mist!
Give it a white wash with gesso...that is your background to build upon.
Rip the edges of the paper you choose, along with tearing holes
in your paper to give old feel...distress the edges with ink.
I also used a wet paint brush to moist the edges to curl up...
Pick your favorite flowers and embellishments...I gesso the fake 
flowers and glimmer mist the Petaloo white flowers...great way to get the color you want.
Wood Veneers are great to add to your project...colored
with glimmer mist..stamp on and cut apart to tuck into your project.

Artsy Addicts: Flying High Altered Book Page

Happy New Year everyone!!
This year I have decided to do more creative play.
Since I created this altered book last year for Marion's design team it's time to fill it up.
This altered page is called "flying high"!!
I used Marion Smith Designs stamp sets
 called "Flying High and Curious.
These balloon stamp images I had laying around my work table...
so why not use them up...on a page.

Enjoy the eye candy of inspiration!!
