I forgot to add in the video that i used gloss enamel on the tops of the clips to make the tops more robust. I painted the clip part and used a matte medium to seal it but whether the paint will stay on is another thing.

The Crafting pouch is good for untacking the glue and the Embellie Gellie makes picking up little bits easier.

I created these planner clips to mark the months out in my planner book.  
Here is a tutorial video

And here are some close ups.

Canvas Corp Brands Spring Blooms Mixed Media ATC Set

Hello all

I have a new set of ATCS to share today. I went with a Spring theme as i had this set of lovely flower stamps and wanted to use them again.
 All products used are listed at the end of the post.

Here is this finished project and close ups. Scroll down for the full step by step tutorial

Start off by adding gesso to the blank ATCS and once dry, add a layer of crackle medium and allow it to set. Next spray over the top with Firefly, Inchworm and Valencia Mist Sprays allowing each layer to dry before adding another colour.

Add texture stamps  around the edges of the cards.

Apply modeling paste and allow to dry before spraying over the top with ink. Flick base with Glimmer Glaze  Nori  and Paradise Pink.

Stamp out the flowers and colour them in using Glimmer Glaze Paint. 

Use Paradise pink and nori

I used Firefly and painted it on with a brush to colour in the Daffodil

Cut out the pieces and position them onto the ATCs before gluing them down.

Finish off the ATCs by adding sentiments and quotes to the cards

You Can Be Anything Even A Unicorn

Hi all

I have a quick and easy mixed media card to share with you using the new Gummiapan stamps available from Swedish House Crafts.

Take a blank card and use a stencil with modeling paste over the whole card blank and let it dry.
Next spray over the top with random pastel coloured mist sprays allowing each layer to dry before adding another colour.

Stamp out 6 unicorns and colour the body in on one and the hair on the other. This stops the ink running into the main part of the image. All you have to do is cut the pieces out and glue them together.

Adhere the unicorns along the card and glue down

Finish with a matching sentiment

Thank you for visiting

Unleash Your Weird Side Art Journal Page for The Blank Page Muse

Hi all

I am back with an art journal page using the colour theme for April's Challenge. Black and red made me want to use skulls so i did. I love the creepy doll from the Halloween On The Shelf set so i added that too.

Join our challenge here

Stamp sets used

Black gesso
Red Paint
White Paint
Black ink pad
Red ink pad
Marker pens

Start the page off by drawing the words onto a plain sheet using a marker pen and then colouring them in.

Cut out the words and put them to one side for now.

Use the Grungy Cobwebs Background stamp and use it over a blank page. Next use a brayer to roll red paint over a stencil and then use the stencil like a stamp across the page.

Add the next stencil using black gesso

Spray the whole page with black mist spray and leave it to dry. Next add white paint to the background by rolling it over a stencil.

Add the words to the page and then stamp out a few skulls from the Dribonze set and the Halloween On a Shelf set. Cut them out add add them around the page to finish.
