Protect Our Bees

Morning everyone, today I have a mixed media card using my A5 Stamp "Honeybee" #330.
I loved creating this piece, the layers and textures work so well together on this shaped card and give a real mixed media feel to the piece.


The video above goes through all the steps to create my card. Hope you enjoy.
The Beeswax element gives it a real tactile feel.
I also incorporated vintage book pages and calico for added interest.
I added the rim from an old pocket watch to act as a spotlight for my focal image.
The bee takes centre stage.
I incorporated some background stamping using my A7 Stamp "Splattered Numbers" #350 for a further layer of interest.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x

I loved creating this piece and you can see the step by steps in the video below:


I adore the texture from the paint layers.
The touches of white really make the colours pop.
A few simple embellishments and the card is complete.

Dream

Morning everyone, welcome. Today I have a card using my A4 Stamp Enjoy The Journey #321, which showcased on the weekend wow at the weekend on Hochanda.
This was one of my demonstration pieces for Hochanda, a nice simple classy card. I will be adding the videos to my YouTube Channel shortly.
I love the combination of the green and brown with the pop of white in the background. The feather looks like it is behind the embossing when in fact it is stamped on the top.
A touch of calico and metal frame complete the composition.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Protect Our Bees

Evening everyone, popping by with a sample I have created for my shows on Hochanda this weekend 26th, 27th and 28th June. Show times - 10am and 2pm ~Friday, 7am and 1pm Saturday and 10am and 2pm Sunday.  I have several stamp sets being showcased this time around and I have prepared 12 videos to be aired on Hochanda, hope you enjoy them.
I love creating pieces on a circular format and this piece was fun to make.
I love adding close up shots of my pieces as you really can see all the layers and detail.
I love adding the wood effect in the background, which I think works so effectively with the coordinated wood slice.
The bee on this set is a really good size and makes an impressive focal piece.
Touches of calico and cotton thread add further texture.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Honeybee Canvas

Morning everyone, today I have a mixed media project for you in a circular format, again created during a recent Facebook Live. You can find a list of our Stockists on the AALLandCreate website HERE.
This piece uses my newly released A4 Stamp "Plant Your Dreams" #320 combined with my "Honeybee" A5 Stamp #330 and A7 Stamp "Splattered Numbers" #350.


Once again the video goes through every step of the circular canvas in detail.
I love all the layered elements on this piece, it is so tactile and uses the newly released Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink Speckled Egg.
I have also added some delicate background stamping using my A7 Stamp "Heartfelt" #304 which I adore, giving a tone on tone effect.
The bee is a really good size so is perfect as a stand alone focal image.
The skin I created and the vintage peg really add some quirky touches to the design.
Thanks so much for stopping by.  Tracy x x
