Making your own Mixed Media Designer Paper

 
Are you here from Party Time Tuesdays?  Welcome!!
 
If not-Welcome!! LOL
You need to hop on over there for our challenges.
 
I love making my own designer paper using mixed media.
 
Started with a 8.5x11 piece of cardstock. Start spraying Lindy's Stamp Gang spays on top of a white doily.  Pick up and move the doily around the page. Allow to dry thoroughly.
 WARNING!!  You will get ink on you-that's part of the fun!! LOL
 Use a large background stamp to stamp versa mark all over the page and emboss in black.  (or you could stamp in black archival ink)  I wanted some texture.
 I measured, cut and covered a match box with my paper.  Used the whole sheet-no waste!  Distress your edges as you go with Walnut Distress ink.
 Decorated with vintage lace, wired ribbon, Wild Orchid flowers and pearls, and a scripture from Inspired Stamps.
Inside I added a blessing poem from my friend Patti.
 I glue glass beads on the bottom for "feet".  It also adds tons of cuteness!!!!


Thanks for stopping by!  If you have ANY questions-please message me.  I love your comments. Have a blessed day!

Christmas Canister-Recycled with Deco Art

I had a small coffee canister and immediately knew I had to alter it! Does that happen to you? I used some new products from Deco Arts. Their Metallic Wax Finish covered the slick surface of the canister. See the tutorial at the end of the post. Want to get in on a challenge with some prizes?? Check it out at Party Time Tuesdays!
**I tried several adhesives in order to glue down embellishments on this wax product. E6000 is the only one that I finally got to work.

DecoArt Americana Paint is best for Gelli Prints

I love making gelli prints.  I've used a variety of types of paints.  The best I've found is DecoArt Americana Acrylic Paints.  The consistency of the paint is perfect for spreading on the gelli plate. 
 On all the background gelli prints I used DecoArt Jacobean Floral stencil and the following Americana paint: Autumn Red, Antique Rose, Cadmium Yellow, and Moon Yellow. I changed which order I was putting them on the plate. This first one I embellished with Unity Stamps I'm so Happy and Ribbon by Really Reasonable Ribbon.  New Dawn Rooster by Unity Stamps and Wild Orchid Flowers.

 This last card-you can really tell how using numerous gelli prints together is like having matching designer paper!!  Except you created it yourself! The sentiment is from Unity Stamps, flowers from Wild Orchid and Flourishes. I hope you're inspired to design your own cards. Everyone loves getting a handmade card!
