Mary's Friendship tag

Here's a mixed media tag I created for Mary who is one of the other talented Design Team Member's over at Soul Scrappers. I was a bit nervous as she does mixed media very well and I am a beginner with mixed media.


I love how it turned out - basically it's a cut down Julie Nutting Watercolor Paper tag (had to make it a specific size) painted with leftover black gesso (was working on another project).
I then used Tim Holtz Cracked Pistachio Distress Paint over a stencil.
I heat embossed my Poppy image from the Wild & Free set made by Donna Downey Studio's with SU's Black Emboss powder and used some cheap Air Brush Paints I came across - how awesome does it look! Oh and the JOY wording is a leftover vinyl cut I had from an order I had finished,

Goes to show what you can create using a few leftovers and what is in your stash!

I will keep my eye out for more of the Gold Airbrush pain - it is such a great colour and has a fabulous shine.

Thanks for looking,

Until next time, Happy Crafting....YCB

Christmas Door Hanger

It really is time to think about Christmas and how you will be decorating your home this season!

So with this in mind, I have started on ideas and just finished this gorgeous Door Hanger.


I really love how this has turned out - considering there is no Christmas ribbons out yet .
I really like the Black and White theme of it.

Thanks for looking,

Until next time, Happy Crafting....YCB

ABC8 Hello

Here's my entry into the latest ABC Challenge over at Soul Scrappers.

We are up to "H" so our choice of word starts with H and the embellishment is Hemp Twine.

Here's my entry:

So I think you can see my "H" word is Hello, and I have a little Hemp Twine bow on my circle mat.

I've used the new Jaded Blossom's Stitched Circle and Scallop Circle dies - how awesome do they look!

Until next time, Happy Crafting....YCB
