My March DT Reveal for Lindy's Stamp Gang
A Mixed Media Canvas
Plus a VIDEO TUTORIAL


Hi there lovelies, thank for stopping by. Today I have a little mixed media canvas
I created for my March DT reveal for Lindy's Stamp Gang
I have also created a VIDEO TUTORIAL of my creative process.

 TO VIEW VIDEO CLICK HERE



I have used four Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays.....
#  Sassy Saphire
#Luscious Lime
      # Grab A Guy Gold
                       #Midnight Rendezvous Raven


Here you can see I have used a 49 and Market stamp set to stamp these little words.


 I have even added some left over bits of my favourite 2Crafty Chipboard.

 Whatever bits I could find, I stuck on, like, washers, buttons, chippies, cogs, a metal frame,
a light globe, some lace & even a bottle cap. I stuck it all down with some gel medium.


 Then followed that up with a nice thick coat of white gesso & then I went to town with all 
my sprays before finishing it off with a few flowers & some glitter.


I hope you like my canvas & maybe get some inspiration from it.

If you liked it I would love you to leave me a comment or two! :)

Until next time.

My Lindy's Stamp Gang March DT Colour Challenge Reveal
AND
My More Than Words March DT Reveal
COMBINED !!
"Baby Girl"


Hello everyone, welcome to the blog. Today I have a sweet little baby layout to share 
with you & I have actually incorporated TWO lots of my design team work into one.
Something I don't ever do but I am a bit time poor at the moment. :)

 Firstly this is the March Challenge board over at
 To use the word"BEAUTIFUL" & the creative challenge is to use a "BUTTERFLY".
Too easy.



This is the challenge colour board for the March challenge over at
Wow, such gorgeous colours.


The Lindy's Stamp Gang colours I have used are...
and
and


Here you can see I have couloured my beautiful butterfly
with the T.Bird Turquoise spray & tucked it in behind my photo. 

I heat embossed the chipboard title, "Baby Girl" with the 
Geranium Coral Blush Embossing Powder


 I used the challenge word "BEAUTIFUL" in this little quote
& then sprayed it again with the T.Bird Turquoise spray to match in.

I also coloured the doiley behind my photo, the muslin gauze behind my
photo, the flowers as well as some real feathers which I have tucked in
both below my photo & also up in the top corner too.


As well as my background I also sprayed these chipboard feathers &
Heart Border as well to keep with my colour theme.

All the chipboard I have used is from 2Crafty Chipboard.


Well thats all for today. I hope I have inspired you to also join in
with both these great challenge too.

Until next time.
