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
