Mixed Media Art Journal Cover

Today I was in the process of art journaling and I decided to decorate my actual art journal cover! I had wanted to do this for a while but could never decide how I wanted to decorate the cover. The over all feel is really inspired by my love of all things whimsical and creepy! I'm still planning on adding more detail over time but for now I'm happy with how it's coming out. Hope you guys enjoy this! I'd love to get your feedback...
The Background Consist of Gesso, Acrylic paint, tissue paper..
Door was colored with Acrylic paint, distress inks, Gel bead medium, Liquid pearls

 I used "Ruby Red" liquid Pearls to achieve this textured look within the heart.

The Tutorial Video for this cover will be on my "Youtube" channel shortly so be sure to check that out.

"Oh The ButterFlies" Card

Hello friends,
Today I'm sharing with you a fun card using all the 'Spots' for the new ( TheStampSpot.com) look 'Spots' challenge! Hope this Card will inspire you to join in and play along with us. I also played along with the sketch challenge over at Some Odd Girl!
For today's card I have used Chocolate Mocha cardstock for the base, paired with a Brad for the centre of the bow, that has been tied with some  Twine . I've also used a Some Odd Girl stamp on some  Neenah (solar white) cardstock.The Butterflies were die cut from Fiskars punch and My Minds Eye (lost&found) cardstock . I created some visual interest by adding some hand sewing on the card and a bit of Stickles to the wings of main image. 

Copic's Used: Skin (YR0000,YR000,YR00,W3,R02), Eyes (G29,G24,G21,G12), Hair (E57,E55,E51,E31)

Mixed Media Tag + New Card!

Hello Crafty Friends,
Today I'm sharing with you a Mixed Media Tag/ Card all rolled into one! I really enjoy making this Card and using different mediums to stamp with and I hope seeing my tutorial video will leaving you itching to try this technique (hehe)!

This is was one of my simpler "Mixed Media" tags, but I really felt it didn't need anything else. Totally fell in love with my dabbers (mostly because it was so nice not having any paint brushes to clean lol..)
I really love Some Odd Girl stamp set " Sweet Thinkin' Mae" and it's one of my favorite's! I paired together some Basic Grey "sweet threads" paper in the background, with Neenah "Solar White" cardstock and royal blue cardstock as the base.

 Thanks so much for Following along with me and all your amazingly sweet comments!                 Crafty Hugs
