Create Magic

Good Friday to you.  I am here to share a project which I have been struggling with for over a week. I was going to show you my first attempt but I just can't. :)  The Mixed Media Place Creative Gym Exercise is  one of my favorite new challenges because the team is very inspirational and they are challenging me to explore new ideas.   I am playing along with their current exercise #6 which is about Typography.

 I started with a full journal page and ending cutting it up to salvage what was left of my background and creating this card.

I decided to layer in two types of typography in the background.  I heat embossed clear stamped letters onto the background with embossing powder and stenciled larger letters using embossing paste.  I also had tissue tape in the background which was painted and misted over many times so you can't see it.

After much tussling about with my background I ended up added the Sizzix dragonfly die cut from a failed piece of this background and highlighted with gold paint.  I used a few flower gems and turned them dark with a touch of a black copic marker and painted a touch of gold on the surface.  The lace was died with brown ink sprays which look purple in this light. The sentiments are from the new Finnabair stamps which I have been playing with.

Have a lovely Friday!



  1. Your dragonfly is stunning! The whole card is fantastic.

  2. Wow - this is absolutely gorgeous!! I love your colors and details - the clear embossed typed letters are great against that grungy green, as is that dragonfly! Don't know what the original looked like, but you've made a wonderful piece from it - xx Lynn
