Mixedmedia frame for Scrapiniec

This is the project I made this month for Scrapiniec : I recycled the frame of a canvas bought because I liked the frame shape.. lol. So for this time I decided to make  a mixed media frame.
Before proceeding, I have created the structure on which to base all the elements of the composition. To do this I used the wooden sticks of ice cream ..... gotta sacrifice !!!!
The next step was to lay a layer of white gesso: once dry, I lay with the spatula an irregular layer of crackle medium, after which I went to color using watercolors. Some random stamps with black Archival ink and the frame is ready to be enriched with several small details.
I placed a large fabric flower at the center of the constructed structure, placing it on a cotton laces, white and beige, and scrap of tulle.
To enrich and enhance my project I have inserted here and there the beautiful Scrapiniec chipboards (at the end of the post the link to find them) that add value to each project and that now I have to admit they have become indispensable: they are elegant, refined and fit to every need.
I hope this alternative frame to expose our memories will please you. Good creativity at all and see you soon!

Swedish House Craft : mixed media 'Bliss' tag

Hello to all,,, Lea here for my first post as Guest Design Team member  and it's really an honour to me. 

I have discovered a brand that I just loved for its style, its original design: Gummiapan welcome to my 'never without'. I made a tag-looking hyper coloured: I first created the base using black gesso, once dry I used different textures pastes and a bit of shimmer with golden glitter. I applied a piece of white lace and I cut twice with integrated rectangles die. One of which I placed above the lace.

After that I enriched further texture adding large grains (which I illuminated by applying with the tip of a brush just tipped with shimmer cream, green and orange) and light violet beads. 

In the centre I placed another smaller black tag: I added a little thick to give a 3d effect to the composition. Finally I used another beautiful set from Gummiapan, Snurrig Blomma dies, the leaf was coloured with watercolor and flower, which I cut twice and one of two I made smaller, I splashed with watercolor too. I also added another flower from the  Crassula set (only one smaller). 

Colourful wires and a chipboard : the tag is done, indeed no ... it was missing something so I stamped the beautiful feather by Gummiapan, with violet ink, I divided it into two and placed so that it appears below the smaller tag ...

I hope this project will stimulate you to experience and play with everything on your craft table. xoxo

Love ATCs for Scrapiniec

Hi all,
my monthly project this time concerns a set of four ATCs: until a long time ago creating a card or something was almost like the writer's block, then for personal challenge I started to realize ATCs and how by magic everything has become simpler. 
To create this set I created the background with black gesso and then used stencils texture pastes and mousses, some sketches of liquid chalk and watercolor, I then superimposed various type of lace, twisted some twine to form a circular shape and in the middle I inserted the delicate chipboards from Scrapiniec shop.
