You Hold The Power To Make The Change

Welcome, today I have a card using my newly released A6 Stamps, Curiosities #209 combined with my A6 Stamp Background Mash Up #210 from AALLandCreate. Our stockists can be found HERE.
I opted for more vintage tones this time around, creating a background with Distress Oxides.
I created to spotlights, blending Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink around a circular die cut and I then added some random stamping using my #210 Background Mash Up stamp, I love using touches of this stamp in the background.
I stamped the hand from my Curiosities Stamp set into each of the circle spotlights and I then stamped the hand image onto vintage book pages and cut out each image.
I also added some of Seth Apter's Vintage Beeswax to my focal images, adding a further layer of texture to my design.
To complete, I added some hand stitching and some touches of torn watercolour pages.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x

Flourishing Vase

Welcome, today I have a card using my newly released A6 Stamp, Flourishing Vase #213 from AALLandCreate. Our stockists can be found HERE.
I am absolutely thrilled with this stamp and the flowers can be used as half flowers or you can make a whole flower with the same stamp. I began by brayering a background with Dina Wakley Acrylic Paints and then placing the Weathered Tiles #59 stencil over the top and using a baby wipe to remove some of the paint from the open areas on the stencil.
I stamped my vase into clay and added touches of paint with my finger to the clay piece.  I also added a cross stitch over the vase to add further texture to my design.
I incorporated some vintage book pages along with some coils of soft siver wire.
This picture shows the dimension achieved from the clay pot and the layered element from the stencil.
Its such a thrill creating designs with my new stamps and I really appreciate you stopping by and leaving a comment, thank you. Tracy x

Wishing You Happy Everything

Welcome, today I have a mixed media piece using my newly released A5 Stamp, Eclectic Stems #199 from AALLandCreate. Our stockists can be found HERE.

This stamp coordinates beautifully with my Doodled Blooms Stamp Set #140. The A5 stamps allow you to use these stamps together or individually so you can create larger projects and have a better scale of design and I have also incorporated new sentiments along with two new images too on the same set.
I opted to decorate one of That's Crafty MDF Chunkies this time around and my A5 flower sits perfectly on this substrate, I am so thrilled with this piece.
I began by adding layers of vintage book pages to the back, front and sides of my substrate and once dry I then began adding layers of paint.
I applied many layers of Dina Wakley Acrylic Paints and once dry I then stamped my A5 flower onto the background. I then added layers of Turquoise Acrylic Paint around the flowers. I also rubbed away some areas of the paint as you can see from this picture. I love how the vintage music paper is visible below all the layers of paint.
The flowers pop against my backdrop and to make the design pop further I also added some delicate splatters of white paint and added touches of further paint with my finger, randomly around the background.
I applied Distress Crayon around the edges of my substrate to give definition.
I then added my sentiment to the bottom of my piece. I love this sentiment.
I hope you are enjoying seeing the new release, as much as I am enjoying creating with them.
This picture shows you the comparison in size of my A6 stamp and my newly released A5 stamp.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your continued support during my creative journey.
Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving a comment, I appreciate each and every one. Tracy x

Flourishing Frame

Welcome, today I have a mixed media framed piece, using my newly released A6 Stamp, Flourishing Vase #213 from AALLandCreate. Our stockists can be found HERE.
I have created a framed piece today and this is also one of two workshop samples. I will be teaching this in a workshop on 13th July for Cal Summers. There will be a choice of two framed pieces, you can make either this one, or this framed piece HERE. We will be adding lots of layered elements to our design, creating a tactile piece in the company of like-minded people.

If you would like to book the workshop on the 13th you can contact Cal Summers whose Facebook page you can find HERE.  You can book a place with Cal using her on-line page HERE. The workshop will be held in Stafford.
I have quite a few detailed shots so you can see all the texture up close and personal.
Lots of layered elements and textural pieces are added to this design.
I have also incorporated some twigs for added interest along with hand stitching, paste, vintage book pages and layers of paint.
Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment, I appreciate every one. Tracy x

Layered Domino

Welcome, today I have an accordion using my Border Stamp, Layered Domino #151 from AALLandCreate. Our stockists can be found HERE.
Whilst reorganising my room I came across this MDF piece and thought it was perfect to showcase my Layered Domino stamp. I created a textural backdrop and added lots of layers to my design.
I love the detail in this stamp and to add further to the detail, I also incorporated some vintage book pages along with some small layered tags.
I also incorporated a draw pool and vintage penn nib to add further interest and dimension to my design.
This would be perfect for Father's day too. I added numbers to echo the numbers in my stamped image and a wooden 'D' to represent Domino.
I love how the paint also pics up all the texture in my background too. I applied Distress Crayon around the edges of my piece to give definition.
I kept the twine from my tags to add a touch more texture.
Thanks so much for stopping by, I really appreciate all your comments.

Grow where you a planted!

Welcome, today I have an accordion using my A6 Stamp, Doodled Blooms #140 from AALLandCreate. Our stockists can be found HERE.
I love working with Kraft so this time around I showcased my Doodled Blooms on an inky background combining Distress Oxide Inks Worn Lipstick and Picked Raspberry. I love the pink with the Kraft.
I added some delicate stencilling to the background again using Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink over the stencil.
I added some delicate touches of vintage book text along with some dots of paint. I also included a small tag with the wording Grow stamped and also incorporated some delicate splatters of white paint.
I added two layers to my flower for added dimension and included some cotton behind for added texture.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x

It's Your Time To Bloom

Welcome, today I have something a little different. I found a heart box when cleaning my room and thought it was perfect for decorating to house a gift using my A4 Stamp Time Flies #143, combined with my A6 Stamp, Doodled Blooms #140 from AALLandCreate. Our stockists can be found HERE.
I am quite please with how this turned out. I began by adding texture to my box with Texture Paste and then adding layers of paint using Distress Paints.
I added a stamped clay piece for my focal image which adds a wonderful textural element to my design along with added texture.
I adore the texture around the sides of my box and I added darker tones to the edges with a Distress Crayon.
I added two flowers stamped onto Kraft card and shaded with pencil to the top of my box and then sentiment worked perfectly with the imagery. I also included some Tissue Tape around the edges for added interest.
I incorporated a touch of stencilling using Autour de Mwa's Lotza Dotz Stencil, adding only touches here and there so as not to over power the background.
Art Pebbles have also been included, again to add further interest to the design along with some delicate splatters of white paint.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
