Blue Moth - Tag for Finnabair BA

Hello Sweeties,

Today I'm up on Finnabair blog with a tag. I just have to play with all the new waxes and believe me, they are all amazing!

To start, I primed the tag (21 x11 cm) with white heavy gesso. Then, I covered it with Carte Postale Tissue Paper. I primed the tissue paper with clear gesso and added a design with the Secret Letter Stencil and Pearl Icing Paste.
When dry, I color the background with Burnt Sienna and Nude Acrylic paints.

Before gluing all the resin elements of the composition with 3D Matte Gel, I primed them with White Gesso as well as the Metal Blooms and the Woodland Leaves.

I painted the flowers and the moth’s body with Tiger Orange and the wings with Purple.

Then, the fun begins with the waxes. For the flowers, I used Coral and Red Flames, and for the leaves, Moss Green and Acid. I colored the frame with Black gold, I just love it! and as well as the gears.

For the moth, I used Celestial and Midnight for the body, then Sea Glass and Cobalt for the wings.
I used Honey to highlight all the details.

To finish, I added shadows with Ink Black, rust accent to the gears with Carmine and finally some glitter.

The Gnome's Garden - Tag for Dusty Attic DT

Hello Sweeties,

Today I'm up on Dusty Attic blog with a tag. 

I selected a medium size tag from the Tag Medley set. I've primed the tag with white gesso before adding some designs to the background. I used the River Stone stencil with the Graphite paste to add the first design like a small path. Then, I added the second design with the Flourish stencil and light modeling paste. When dry, I painted the background with black and brown for the path, and green for the forest background.
I primed all the chipboards I've selected with white gesso as well. Then, I painted them with different acrylic paints. 

The Gnome was painted with carmin, brown and black paint. I used brown and black paints to color the small Fairy Door #1 and black and white for the stone. 

For the Grass Cluster #1, I used green and purple. I added a touch of Unicorn paste to add some fun. 

I paint the head of the Toadstool Border with carmin and the grass with green paints.

When everything was to my taste, I glued everything together.

Kaleidoscope Cards for 49 and Market DT

Hello Sweeties,

Today I'm up on 49 and Market blog with a simple set of cards created with both Color Swatch Charcoal and  Kaleidoscope collections. 

I cut the two cards in a sheet of the Essential White Cardstock. The dimensions of the cards are 20 x 15 (Portrait) cm and 10x30 cm (Landscape), then folded in half.

I chose one sheet of paper from the 6x8 Charcoal Pack, and cut two pieces of paper 9,5 x 14,5 cm. 

I selected a few Laser Cut Elements and Ephemera Bits from the Kaleidoscope collection to add on top.

I added a couple of Wild Flowers to the portrait card but kept the landscape card relatively flat.

Blue Fish - Mixed media canvas for Dusty Attic

Hello Sweeties,

Today I'm up on Dusty Attic blog with a mixed-media panel inspired by the sea life.

First I primed my canvas board with black gesso. I added two designs. The first one with the River Stone Stencel and gold paste to represent the sea floor, and the Second with the Confetti #2 Stencil and Ice Crushed Jewel paste for the bubbles.

I also primed the chipboard with black gesso except for the Coral Elements. I covered the latter with a light modeling paste. With my spatula, I made some peaks to give some dimension to the coral.

Next, I covered all the cogs I've selected from the Jumbo Cogs #2 and Mini Cogs #2 sets with Rust Effect Pastes. 

I glued all the elements of the composition with a 3D gel except the Marine Mechanicals Fish. I selected different green, turquoise, and yellow waxes to color the Ocean Elements I've chosen.

For the Coral Mixed, I chose red and coral waxes. I highlighted all the elements with gold and silver waxes. 

I used different shades of blue, green, and turquoise to color the fish. I highlighted the details with metallic waxes. When Happy, I glued the fish.
