Themes And Stamps Revisited

So Tuesday saw a new make for Creative Expressions here on my blog. Well there is nothing like working in themes and after making Tuesday's canvas panel I had some left over Cosmic Shimmer Texture paste mixed with Cosmic Shimmer Western Blue Polished Silk Glitter. Couldn't let it go to waste could I? This time the glittered texture paste was used through a…

A Textured Collage Mixed Media Panel

Something non-card today, I have a 5" x 7" canvas panel to share. It is a little mixed media, textured collage with no name, I'm just calling it 'Panel', perhaps the name will come to me later? I've used the new clear texture paste from Cosmic Shimmer mixed with the Cosmic Shimmer Western Blue Polished Silk Glitter through a mask. The butterfly is…

Going Glittery Again

Going all glittery again for Creative Expressions, you remember the doodle journal page from last week? Well this is the same glitter again, it is the Cosmic Shimmer Polished Silk Glitter. You can stamp on this glitter, emboss it in folders (once stuck on a surface of course) but I've actually used it with the Cosmic Shimmer Flake and Glitter Glue through a mask.…

A Monday Rose for Creative Expressions

Flowers are always a great 'go-to' image aren't they? This month the Creative Expressions DT have been playing with the Floral Silhouette stamp plate. I love playing with watercolour techniques on silhouette stamps, so that is what I've done with my tag make today. I've added a lot of water and stamped the rose onto textured watercolour paper to give a really…

A Garden On A Tag

A make today, a designer paper tag with an 'out in the garden' feel about it. Well it is a bit of indoor garden. The flower and leaves are from the Heartfelt Delicate Asters Pre Cut Stamp set, it is a great set for layering up and making lovely 3D florals. The papers are old and it is part of my trying to…

Playing With Kraft Glassine From Tim Holtz

How about another sample from the show? I think this might be one of my favourites. Last week was the first time I got my hands on some of the Tim Holtz Kraft Glassine paper, I've been curious about the stuff but just hadn't had a go at it. I'm very glad it was included in the show because it might be…
