Mixed Media Canvas with Channa!

Wednesday, August 27, 2014

Good morning all, 

Channa here, and today i am sharing a mixed media canvas for you. 
I was ready to play around and get messy and see below how it turned out:

I used one sheet of paper of the 7 dots, Cold country collection pack. Together with some embellishments, such as flowers, chipboards & stamps from my own stash i created this canvas. 
Normally i always start a project with an idea in my mind but this one was completely free style. 

Thats the nice part of mixed media, just use whatever you can find on your desk and start playing around. 
I made several layers starting from paint, paper, gesso, modeling paste, sprays etc...

Thank you for passing by and have a great day!

Hugs from BraziL

                                                   Life is Beautiful!!!!!!

              Life is Beautiful!!!!!!
I started thinking about the topic of this page when I saw the beautiful colors of this collection of papers this month !!! 
I love the shades of blue, brown and beige with and decided to make handmade flowers that matched with the leaves of this collection. 
I love to wear lots of layers on all my pages and therefore use cardboard, gauze and papers from the same collection that match all shades of roles.


To start the first layer, I used cardboard and gauze which gives an air of lightness to my page. 
I love putting many papers from the same collection to form layers


I adore flowers for me are the most beautiful details of a page and delights me to make them. 
I made flowers in shades of blue and brown and some lighter to contrast with the leaves, I also used Petaloo flowers they are wonderful 
I made a yellow flower to contrast with the shades of blue which gave a very beautiful effect. 


After doing some flowers was time to embellish my page. 
There used everything that came in very beautiful KIT August. 
Used these bouquets that came in this kit. 
And I also used a small clock that gave a grace on the page, I made a loop and put it close, what has become very delicate.


Loved the shade of blue this kit and why the same role which I did the flowers. I also did a frame. 

This frame Enhanced Photo and under that used a chipboard frame that gave a very gracious air to page.


And when I thought I was already finished with the page. 
I decided to put a piece of paper that matched what had already used and used a Martha Stewart punch to form another layer. 

And also put the gorgeous detail that came in this month's kit !!Make sure you stop by the Frosted Design Store for this kit and more fantastic products. Thanks for stopping by, your kind comments always make me so happy!!!!!

Thanks again!!!!!


The Deconstructed Layout with Anita!

Monday, August 25, 2014

Hi everyone, it's Anita here today to share another Deconstructed Layout with you.

I am so loving the Capture The Moment Kit from Frosted Designs- I have made several layouts with it now and every single one looks different! Be sure to get one while they last. 

Today I want to talk about using a LOT of the same color, without overwhelming your layout with it. 
You CAN do it!
Here is a look at my layout. Of course, I had to have some pink on it. I used Prima papers from the Capture The Moment kit, and Princess Collection Kit.
This is my second layer from the bottom, and I love the pattern, but wanted more color. So after I punched the edges, I inked it- and I mean I really inked it! The ink extends about 2- 2.5" in from the edge. 
I started with the lightest color of ink I wanted to use, then added a darker color of ink
 just along the edge of the paper.
Next up, I used my VersaMark  around one side at a time, and added a bit of texture with Lindy's Stamp Gang Hibiscus Rose Orange Embossing Powder.
I also used Lindy's on my Blue Fern Studio's Chippie- this time Golden Angel Wings. You can see on the upper layer of paper, just under the chipboard, I stamped using the Heart Flourish Splash stamp and an ink one shade darker.  I added the small burlap flowers to the centers of a couple of larger flowers for the corners.
 I added more flowers, butterfly and brad, all included in the Capture the Moments kit, to the lower corner.
I also added some faux stitching with my Signo White pen.
This photo illustrates how I wanted to use my color how it all came together. For the most part my layout is a monotone, mainly PINK. However, I separated each layer of pink with a NEUTRAL. Starting from the corner there is;
1. The background page
2. the PINK punched page
3. the neutral flower die-cut and chipboard
4. the PINK edge of the punched paper
5. the white portion of the punched paper
6. the PINK cardstock
7. the photo
So, the moral of our story is this:
if you want to use one color in abundance, be sure to place it between layers of neutral colors
and it will be fabulous!
I hope you give this a try, and I would love to see how it turns out!

Joni is Mixing it Up!

Friday, August 22, 2014

I'm so thrilled to be back in the swing of things....I had a rather unfortunate situation that left me unable to scrap for a time.... 6 weeks to be exact!!!    My husband, myself and son were in a car accident on July 10th.  My son (he's 10) only had minor bruises (praise God!) -- and my husband had some bruises and a broken leg.  Now, somehow I got the worst of it...I had the same chest and stomach bruises from the seatbelts as my ds and dh....but I also got my legs jammed under the dashboard so I had some leg injuries and my right knee required surgery.  I also had a fracture to one of my vertebrae and a broken rib.  But the real crazy injury is that I broke BOTH HANDS (right hand required surgery).  I was holding a piece of paper in front of me when the impact occured, so we think the airbag hit my hands. But...now it's 6 weeks later and I'm doing better and have been able to scrap again (I'm calling it therapy...not only for my mind, but also for my hands!!)

Sorry for the long explanation.... today I wanted to share some layouts using our Frosted Design kits intermixed.  I love that they can so easily coordinate with each other!!

So, when the accident happened, I already had started some layouts using the July "Enchanted" kit.
These first two below also use the wood plaques from the previous "Capture the Moment" kit and are actually size 9x9 and are for a friend's baby book.

After I used part of the background paper, I wanted to use the "rest" of it on the second page, but didn't have quite enough.  So, I used a piece of blue paper in the center, and used the stencil and some paint to make the transition between the upper and lower pieces. 
Note on the Nana layout, the fairy above the flower is from the newest kit "Summer's End".

This next one was halfway done using the "Enchanted" kit, but I just couldn't figure out how to finish it up.
Then when I sat down with the "Summer's End" kit, I knew the flowers, wood & metal embellishments were the perfect final touches!!

And this last one, I started with the "Summer's End" kit but also used a few other items from the store.
I used the embossing powder from the "Enchanted" kit - it blends in with the blue mist, but it's a subtle accent.   (Thanks to my son for spritzing the mist for me..I don't quite have the hand strength to do that yet!)  I also used the Hazel and Ruby Mask Alphas (ERUPTION) and outlined the negative space with a Glaze Pen.
