Love is ...

I decided to start an 8"x8" Ranger Dylusions Creative Journal that I bought ages ago.
This journal is big !
I should have realised that a full spread would be 16"x 8" 😏

It seemed like a lot of background to cover but I thought I would try some Distress Oxide inks to do it. I chose 2 colours - Peeled Paint and Salty Ocean and went ahead with a blending tool.This is the first time I had used these inks and a spritz of water creates a lovely painterly effect on it.
I found a lacey stamp to edge the pages and a matching doilie stamp for some other random stamping.
I also added some little stencilled hearts using Oxide ink again this time in Worn Lipstick.

The girl and bunny are from Santoros Kori Kumi paper pack - they are such a cute pair !
The floating hearts are cut from the same paper pack and finally I painted the wooden 'Love' sentiment to match the hearts.

Wishing you all a Happy Valentines Day and hope you get to spend at least some of it with someone you love.

Mixed Media & Art January Challenge - Dreams

Princess of Dream
Mixed Media and Art Blog
January Challenge - Dreams

I love a crafty challenge !
Just because it inspires me to create something I wouldn't normally do.
Take a look at the Mixed Media and Art blog for mouthwatering inspirational projects by their talented readers and designers.
This is my entry below 😊 for this months challenge - Dreams.

The mood board has a combination of gorgeous ice cream shades, flowers and candy skulls.
The dress on the lower left got me thinking and inspired me to come up with my entry.

To create a gown I needed a mannequin - enter the clothes peg πŸ˜‰
and a bit of rusty wire to make a flexible stand.
The wrap round petticoat is a piece of Santoro Deco Mache paper, it’s nice and crisp to help the skirt stand out. Strips of torn crepe paper make the skirt, which I trimmed into petal shapes once glued to the waist.

I gave the skirt a light spray of Lindy’s Starburst Spray which softened the paper, shaded it and added  a soft glimmer. I also used Spectrum Aqua pens with a water brush to drip some more shading onto the petals.

I used Flowersoft for the bodice and once that was dry I added all the little flowers and embellishments. I brushed everything with white gesso, added lots of glitter and found a tiny set of wings in my stash. A tiny Fimo mask completes the outfit - perfect for a Fairy Masquerade Ball.

I enjoyed creating - hope you like my funny little fairy mannequin !

Happy Halloween !

Flown by to wish you a Happy Halloween!
Here is my seasonal felted and sewn witches hat.
It measures about 3 1/2" with fabric foliage and a teeny felted mouse.

Just got time to put my feet up before the Witching Hour !
