Mixed Media Mojo

It's May and time for another Mixed Media Mojo!  

Here is a journal spread I am sharing for this month's challenge!  

I have been working ALOT in my Dylusions journals!  This is the smaller one which measures 8 x 5. Here I used Dylusions paints with a brayer in the background.  Stenciled a bit over it added some stamps.  The burst flowers on the right are from Unity Stamp Co.  And the other images are from the Dylusions line. I added some "faux" stitching on the stems of the flowers and around the border.




I like to color using the Dylusions inks from the sprays.  I just spray a bit in a palette dish and use it with a brush to color images!  

Thanks for stopping by!!

Just Us Girls



This week at Just Us Girls Ina has a great wild card challenge for us and that is to make a favorite fold or shaped card.  I used to make these types of cards a few years back. I loved the apron style card, I used to use my dies.  I haven't done a shaped card in a long time so this was super fun.

Here is what I came up with:


I just cut a simple outline for the take out cup and then embellished it!  If only my Starbucks cup was like this!

Be sure to swing on by Just Us Girls to play along with us this week!

Till next time!

Unity Girl Challenge

Unity Stamp Co has a weekly challenge on their Unity Show and Tell Facebook page.  This week it's a Unity Girl Challenge!

This is what I created!  My background was created using Watercolor crayons by Recollections.  I scribbled them down and used my wet finger to blend out.  Then I embossed over it.  I colored my girl using Dylusions Inks on a brush. 





Thanks for stopping by!

Crafty Sunday

Hey there!

Angela the owner of Unity posted a cute video on the Unity Facebook page last night of her making a super simple cute card.  And there is a challenge to go with it to recreate her card and post it as a comment to the video.

Here is my simple version of what Angela made:


This is using one of the Unity Layers Of Life past kits and Ranger Archival inks.  Super quick and easy I think it took a minute to make.  It took longer to find the stamps to use and take a picture of it.  I also distressed the edges.

Be sure to check it out at Unity and check out the big sale and new releases at Unity Stamp Co.! 

Thanks for stopping by!!
