Prima Doll Tag and Altered Domino Charm Swap

8 Feb

 

Prima Doll Tags

I participated in a fun swap hosted by my friend Tmika, who is Scrapdaworld on YouTube.  The swap was all about using some of the things that everybody just had to have, like the Prima Doll Stamps, dominos, or bottle caps.  I know I just had to have the doll stamps and I had not used one of them. They are so cute so I am not sure why I had not used them in some way!

The requirements were that you make a tag with a doll stamp and also make a coordinating charm with either a domino or bottlecap.  Since I had participated in a bottle cap charm swap last year, I chose to go with the domino. I did have to go and search for dominos to use as I had not gotten on the had to have thing with those!  Here is the back of the tags with the charms…

I decided that I would make each tag different instead of them being all the same.   It was a very fun process and I loved the way they turned out!  Now I am going to put you on photo overload with individual shots and my video!  Thanks for stopping by!

Valentine’s Day is in the air…at least at The Cutting Cafe!  This week starts our valentine projects.  I chose to do an altered canvas with a photo of my god brother and my dog that he loves so much!  I used the Valentine’s Day Bingo Printable Stamps Set.  I used a background paper that has the bingo numbers on it, randomly added some texture paste, and some embellishments.  I love the way it turned out.

Here are a few more views…

It is Inspiration Wednesday at The Cutting Cafe!  That means it is design team project time.  This week the theme was strawberries.  We had three files we could work with.  I chose two of the three – the Strawberry Shaped Card Template Cutting File, and the Berry Sweet Printable Stamp Set.  The other file was the Strawberry Treat Box Template Cutting File.

Here are a couple close ups…

I just put a sentiment on the inside and it was ready to go.  This is an easy file to use and can easily be cut by hand if you do not have an electronic cutting machine.

Be sure to stop by the Cutting Cafe Blog later today to see the other design team projects.  If you leave a comment, you will be eligible for a drawing next week for three free files.

My First Mixed Media Canvas!

9 Jun

I have been watching mixed media projects on YouTube for months and have been saying I am going to do one someday.  Well someday finally happened!  I did one for my dad for Father’s Day.  It was a process, but I am happy with the way it turned out for the most part.  I will start with showing you the photo of some of the elements I chose to use and the piece once I put the texture on and glued the elements on and covered it with gesso…

Once the three layers of gesso was dry, I painted it with acrylic paint and Lindy’s Stamp Gang, and Tattered Angels sprays.  The finished canvas looked like…

I used a lot of elements but did not use any flowers since it was for my dad and featured a little boy.  Here are a few close up photos of the gesso phase and the completed project.
