December Color Challenge Lindys Stamp Gang



Hi everyone, I hope you are having a great time this holiday season.   Today I would like to share with you a mixed media layout that I created for the Lindy's Stamp Gang's December Color Challenge. I captured this sweet photo of my niece Averie kissing Gram Christmas last year.  This was the perfect photo for today's layout.  Here is a glimpse at the color challenge photo: 



I decided to use Tibetan Poppy Teal and Creme Brulee Cream which I had in my stash.  




I didn't have anything in the Lindy's family to represent the red value in the color challenge, so I decided to reserve that color for my paper embellishments. 

I used the Creme Brulee Cream to add shimmer on all of my accent pieces.  While the Tibetan Poppy Teal was used to add contrast in my background.  Look at how beautiful my Crackle Paste Snowflakes look against the Tibetan Poppy Teal spray.  


For additional interest around my floral sprays I added a few Die-namites Dies.  The Spring Doily Die was cut in half and sprayed with the Creme Brulee Cream then added to either side of the embellishment cluster.   The flowers from the flowering branch die cut were the perfect accent for my floral sprays. I also sprayed the branch dies with the Creme Brulee Cream


   


Every Christmas layout needs glitter - right?  Well I used non-shed red glitter paper to create a banner across the bottom of my photo cluster, and covered wooden snowflakes with Glass Glitter. 



I framed my layout in this wooden fame that was painted with the Tibetan Poppy Teal.  It is going to look gorgeous on my wall this Holiday season. 

Here is a process video showing how I created this layout.

Masculine Mixed Media Card - Time to Celebrate

0

OH MY GOODNESS - Why have I waited so long to purchase a Gelli plate?   I'm having so much fun!   I've created dozens of prints over the last few weeks.


I wanted to share an idea of how to use those prints.  If you have followed me for a while, you know that I'm just not much for "journaling".  Don't get me wrong, I have dozens of journals, and I have some that are mixed media, that I've started.  But I like to practice techniques on card stock then create projects with them, instead of hiding them away in a journal.

I created this masculine card to give to my nephew for his birthday.  These Gelli prints are PERFECT for Masculine card backgrounds.  So FUN, vibrant, and the perfect amount of grunge.

Earlier this year, I shared with you a post on how I created these wood veneers from the wood shapes you find in the craft section and stamps in your stash.  This is a perfect way to create custom embellishments with a trendy flare without breaking the wallet.  But I also encourage you to dig through your stash, and see if you can find something that would work.  Perhaps stickers of clocks, puzzle pieces, gears, washers, clocks, wood shapes, or  hexagon shaped die-cuts.


For the inside of my card, I used the Heidi Swapp Coral ink and a Fiskars Hexagon Sentiment Stamp set.  The "Time to Celebrate" perfectly mimicked the cluster of embellishments on the cover.

I have prepared a process video, showing how I put the card together:





I hope you enjoyed my share today,  Don't forget that we have a Ustream, Monday, December 1, 2014  at 8:30 p.m. Est.  We are going to create some fun Christmas cards using Gelli Prints and Die-nmaties Dies.

Gifts From the Heart!

2
We often get so caught up with the commercialism this time of year, and I wanted to take a step back and share a post with you today, of an extra special gift I received last night.  Time, love,a little paint and a canvas was all that was needed to bring a huge smile to my face!

Let me set the scene:
At the end of a busy work day yesterday I get this text message:
"Hey are you home?",  my reply "No, I'm at work about to walk out the door, what's up?"   response, "Cooper was asking."
When I left I called my little Mini Cooper and he said "I have a surprise for you"  I said "oh yeah,  is it good?"  Jokingly I added "Is it a new car?"  He replied "NO IT IS BETTER THAN A NEW CAR!" Better is right!  
When I got to his house, he wouldn't even let me out of the car. Hands crossed behind his back and grinning ear to ear!  I said "Let me get out of the car, first  - hang on."
He was having NO Part of me getting in the house.  He pulled this gorgeous canvas from behind his back - and said "I painted this for you. Do you  like?"  HELLO - OF COURSE I LOVED IT!  Who Wouldn't?  I said "this is such a Treasure!"


The fact that he took the time to paint this gorgeous canvas for me, melted my heart.  He was so right - this is better than a car, diamond, or anything found in a store.  Gifts from the heart - say "I slowed down to think of YOU! I took time from the hustle and bustle of "my" life - AND SPENT TIME ON YOU - BECAUSE I LOVE YOU!" As I get older, I realize that TIME and LOVE are the two things that money can not buy. TIME is so precious, and love well - Love is PRICELESS.  This is truly the BEST GIFT EVER!

These last few weeks, I have really been down. I've had a lot of pressure to get TONS of obligations full filled. I have a super busy career, family commitments,  designer responsibilities, volunteering for youth sports and a demanding sports photography business. All of this combined with very little sleep has taken its toll on my psyche. On top of that, I have been super emotional.  I don't usually let people see the vulnerable side of me.  Instead I hibernate, and withdraw.  Sunday,  I posted that I was approaching burn out.  I needed to find a way to "recharge".  

This one Random Act of Kindness - did this for me!  Cooper gave me back my MOJO.  He reminded me that creative play is an important part of who I am.  I have to find time to get my fingers inky, and let go of perfection.  Step away from the computer, and just PLAY without the pressure of a deadline. Spend time doing something I love for someone else. 

With all my nieces and nephews I have always made time to nurture their creative side. The first thing they always ask is "can I come to your house and play?"  Playing with a child, is the BEST way to recharge the batteries, spark your creative mojo, and make a memory that could never be bought.  NO ONE is as free at creative play as a child.  

For those of you who have followed me for years,  you met Cooper several years ago on YouTube when he helped me make "Steampunk" birds.  

Here is his crafty debut:



As the visit went on, Cooper asked me for a date!  He wants to go arts and crafts shopping, then maybe to Starbucks for cakepops and hot chocolate (LOL)!

Limor asked the question yesterday "Have I made a difference?"  With this one simple gift, I got my answer to this same question.  YES, I have made a difference. My art has inspired and influenced so many. I'm always humbled by your stories and support.

Today, I want to remind you that it doesn't take money to make the holidays special.  It just takes time, and love.  The best gifts come from the Heart!

Thanks for stopping in today,
Tonya

November Ustream Update

0
Wow we had such a great time on Ustream creating this lovely chalkboard.



There are lots of tutorials out there for using paint pens, embossing powders/stamps and colored pencils to make your boards look neater and professionally printed. However,  I wanted this class to focus on using actual chalk!  I shared tricks for getting the looks you want even if you think you can't draw.  

The two templates that I used in today's class were made by Hot Off The Press - they are older, and may be hard to find.  Check with your local retailers to see if you can get them in your market area.  If you can't no worries,  look at your stencils, dies, and electronic cutters and see if you can create a similar effect with something you have in your stash! 





Thank you to those who were able to make the show live.  If you were unable to attend, you can watch it on YouTube. 



The best advice I can give is PRACTICE!

Thanks for watching,  now get out there and create a beautiful Chalkboard for the Holidays.   I can't wait to see what you make.

Save the Date:  Our next Ustream will be December 1, 2014 at 8:30 p.m. EST.

Dreams Mixed Media Tag

2
 
 
 
We were in a gift shop in Savannah, GA  and I saw this quote on a book "If your Dreams Don't Scare You, They Aren't Big Enough!"  Honestly, the statement is so true.   The goals in my life where I had to overcome the fear of something, have been my most rewarding achievements.  
 
 
 
I also recently purchased a few feather molds. I shared, a few weeks back, my collection of feather clay pieces on Instagram/Facebook. The quote reminded me of the feathers, and inspired the theme of the tag.
 
Those who follow me, also know, I'm not a huge Halloween fan. However, in the spirit of the season, I decided to keep my tag along the "nightmare" gothic/dark side.   Since the quote uses the words scare and dream, I felt that this would make a perfect theme. 
 
 
 
Purple is not usually my first color choice, but this year I have really been drawn to the color.  I decided to keep my tag's colors simple with tones of purple, black and gold.  All perfect for night and Halloween!    I used the new Steampunk Gelatos® set from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Black Cherry and the Black Licorice Gelatos® to color the base of the tag.  
  
Here is a glimpse at my finished tag. 
 
I have also prepared a process video showing you how I created the tag.
 
 

 
 
I hope you have enjoyed my tag.  Thanks for stopping in today,

Sea Side Mixed Media Tag

5
 
Oh my I'm having so much fun creating tags lately.    Today I want to share with you my latest tag. The Sea Side theme was inspired by cleaning my room -  believe it or not!   I ran across the Nantucket stamp set from Pink Paislee and was reminded that I've always wanted to use the sea horse from the stamp set. 
 
 
This stamp set has been discontinued, however, I encourage you to look through your stash and find a stamp set that you have rarely if ever used, and center a tag around one of the images in the set.
 
 
 
 
I chose these three Lindy's Stamp Gang colors to color my tag.   Top to Bottom:  Glory of The Seas Gold, Cosmopolitan Pink, and Tiffany's Blue.  
 
 
 
 
 
For texture I used Ranger's Crackle Medium on my sea horse.  Isn't he gorgeous propped up against my flowers?   I also used Faber Castell Design Memory Crafts® Textural Accent - Glass Bead Glitter Gel to give the illusion of sea sprays.   I love how the glitter reflects in the light. Pools of water were added with Glossy Accents.
 
 
 
I look at tags as the ultimate creative play. The small space can be really challenging, and push my creative juices.  I rarely do journal pages, instead I use tags to  experiment with mediums and techniques.
 
Here is a process video of me creating the tag.
 

 
 
It is so fun to see all those tiny scraps come together to create such beautiful tags.
 
Thanks for stopping in today,
 
Tonya

Mixed Media Autumn Tag

2

 
Hi everyone, I think fall is my favorite time of year.  The air is getting crisp, the leaves are changing, and vibrant pops of color are everywhere.  I was cleaning my studio and found an old vellum quote I've had in my stash forever it says "Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn."  So I decided to create a tag.
 
For my leaf foliage I used these two Die-Namite Dies
 
Leafy Branch Die
 
 
http://www.die-namites.com/Flowering-Branch_p_51.html
 
Look at all that yummy depth, rich color and texture!
