Inspired By A Song




This is such an amazing theme 
This week we stay

INSPIRED BY A SONG!


As always you can win a $50 voucher and spend it


 I got inspired by one Love Me Tender by Elvis.
I love his songs and listen them a lot. 
My fave is Suspicious Minds but is hard to show on a project, lol. 



First I cut several SSS Heart Stream pieces and glued them to my base 
making a kind of a frame for my focal element. 
Then I covered all the surface with a layer of white gesso.
I colored it all with Distress Oxide Hickory Smoke ink and water.
After that I only placed the crackle paste on the bigger hearts and left to dry.
The hearts were colored with red and black and the rest was highlighted with more black color by smearing the oil pastel crayon.
The frame was distressed by using white gesso and silver paint. 
The photo wass covered with my fave Crackle Rock Candy.

Stencil It


Hi there again! 
Join us over Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge with a great theme

STENCIL IT



As always you can win a $50 voucher and spend it


My projects is quite mixed-media and textured, just the way I really like it.
Check the close-ups below and a description of the steps I took.


I decided to try Nuvo Mousse as a modeling paste cause I saw this technique someday on YT and since I have a big jar of it, I could affort it :-)
You can make it with any of the stencil you like, the mousse is quite rigid but with some drops of water it's more workable and th effect is really cool.
To get even more texture, I heated it until it bubbld, I really love to do that!
It seems I am still inspired by the last week's theme OMBRE and I colored the background with 2 tones of Distress Sprays: brown and yellow.


I also covered the background with a thin layer of white gesso to give it a softer look and stamped randomly with Distress Oxide using clear embossing powder.
Then I cut out Sizzix Layered Butterfly out of my background and gave it a colorful look using oxides as well. Finally smeared the same Nuvo Mousse all over the background and the butterfly and added some metal details.
