Simon Says : Tear It Up




Hello Friends

Today I am sharing my third post as the Spotlight Designer for the Simon Says Monday Challenge. The theme this week is Simon says : Tear It Up




I will be posting special Spotlight Designer posts every Monday this month for the Simon says Monday Challenge, if you want to see my earlier posts you can see here and here





The theme for this week is Tear It Up and I created an Inspirational plaque for my elder son's desk. Well the theme this week to me is about breaking away and tearing off the set norms of society, doing the things which speak to you, not just fit in but think and attempt at being true to yourself !! 

I selected a very gentle color of pink for this as the feelings I wanted this to convey were of love, tenderness, support ,calmness, hope and optimism....and I selected Spun Sugar distress Ink.

1. I started with a mixed media card stock and stamped Hero Arts Blooming Meadows stamp and Butterflies using the Tim Holtz Visual Artistry stamp.


2. I distressed the edges with scissors and sponged with Spun sugar Distress Ink.
3. I have used paper from the DCWV 'Letters from the Home' stack . 
4. all paper strips and background mat paper is from the DCWV stack and has been torn using a steel ruler.

5.to create some texture and layered effect I have inked the edges of paper strips and used foam tape , some vintage stamps from the same stack are used in layers......
6. I cut out a tag shape out of a soft pink with a script design and stamped and heat embossed the sentiment using black embossing powder. 



7. The flower bunch is fussy cut from the same stack and inked lightly on the edges , then it is lightly embossed from the back using a ball tool to create a dimensional effect . 


you can see the layers and dimension in the picture below....finished with some splatters with black acrylic paint......

Simon Says : It's a Stitch Up (stitching real/or faux)





Hello Friends

Today I am sharing my second post as the Spotlight Designer for the Simon Says Monday Challenge. The theme is It's a Stitch Up ( incorporate stitching real or faux ) 




I will be posting special Spotlight Designer posts every Monday this month for the Simon says Monday Challenge, if you want to see my earlier post you can see here





The theme for this week is It's a Stitch Up and I created an Art Journal page titled  'Imagine the Possibility' in my Journal. 

1. I started with a mixed media card stock and added a coat of matte medium.
2. I added texture with Tim holtz flourish stencil and Crafters workshop Art is stencil
3.also added some random die cuts and circle cut outs on the background using matte medium

  After the modeling paste dried, I started adding colors straight with the mini distress ink pads in Picked Raspberry, Evergreen Bough and Mustard Seed. I blended the colors a bit with the water brush and a wet tissue. 



I then die cut and embossed the butterflies using the Tim Holtz butterfly duo die and embossing folder. I colored the butterflies with the same colors of Distress inks and stamped with a text stamp by Bo Bunny and Archival ink in Black, edged the cut butterflies with black archival ink 


I added some stamping on the background too, also dry brushed white gesso in some areas to tone down colors and also to create some movement in design


I stitched the butterflies with a black thread on my page,added micro beads in black with Gel medium and the sentiment  ' Imagine the Possibility' using the Tim Holtz chit chat stickers 


 Added black paint splatters and some Gold metallic wax on the butterflies and black beads.......
