Hi There! I feel like I haven't created anything in awhile but I have been creating, but just not sharing yet! :) I just joined the Creative Crew with Canvas Corp Brands and am loving it! I have already posted a project on misting on the blog if you would like to check it out it is posted here. The Canvas Corp Brands is sponsoring the Words and Paintery January Challenge this month which is one of my favorite color challenges so a perfect opportunity for me to use my new CCB products and play along. You can see what the Creative Crew created for the challenge on the Canvas Corp Brands blog. I also decided to use the Mixed Media Monthly challenge of "Time Flies" as it works really well with the inspirational phrase on the Words and Paintery Challenge.
I went with the time flies and used a Verses sentiment which reminds us to focus on the current moments and what you can do today because that is life. I layered a lot of goodies into this one card. :) I think I was making up for lost time.
1. Spray the glimmer mists onto the craft mat in various places and add water to soften the colors.
2. Drag, place and smear the paper onto the mists. Repeat as desired. (I made about 10 backgrounds from this one series, so you may be seeing these colors again!)
3. Stamp image of girl on scrap backgrounds using brown ink. Heat emboss with brown embossing powder. Cut to fit timepiece.
4. Spray time piece with brown glimmer mist. Let dry. Using glue pen dab around the edges and sprinkle with gold ultrafine glitter.
5. Cut bee from paper. Color with brush and glimmer mists sprayed on craft mat. Let dry. Dab glue on wings and sprinkle with gold ultrafine glitter.
6. Cover timepiece and bee with versamark ink. (I used an old inkpad as I knew the glitter was going to get onto my ink pad. Heat emboss with clear embossing powder. While still warm apply more embossing powder and repeat.
7. Stamp sentiment in brown on background and heat emboss using brown embossing powder.
8. Stencil numbers using light brown ink over background.
The rest is layering and assembling.
