Entry for Finnabair's Art Recipe July 2019 Challenge

 Colours of July Art Recipe:
pink, mint, yellow green

Art Alchemy: Sparks
Art Alchemy: Metallique Paints
Art Ingredients: Glass Beads
Art Basics: 3D Gel (matte or gloss)
Hey Crafty Friends I'm here to share my project entry for Finnabair's Art Recipe July Challenge,  have you seen the inspiration???  So inspiring!  This really was a great challenge for me and I need this to help me get out of my little box!  I've never used this color combo before.  

I used a 9x12 canvas,  I began using stencils,  3D Gloss Gel with Mini Art Stones and White Sand Texture Paste from Art Ingredients Finnabair products to create my background!  Once the texture paste was dry I used Sorbet Color Bloom Spray Mist from Prima in random spots and then added Art Alchemy Impasto Mint Acrylic paint and my last color I added Lime Color Bloom Spray Mist from Prima.  I let it dry and then got my Prima Stamps out to add more depth to my background.  I also added Art Alchemy Sparks Unicorn's Hair for alittle shine to the background.

I went thru my stash and got some crocheted doilies,  Reneabouquets Beautiful Board Lasercut Chipboard,  fabric and paper flowers,  Prima Metal Embellishments,  Metal embellishments and some Art Ingredients Melange Art Pebbles and also made some Wings from Finnabair's mould.  
I laid out my design with the doilies,  chipboard pieces and metal embellishments plus some alphabet stickers I've had in my stash for years.  Glued everything down and then started adding detail with some of the Impasto(Mint),  Art Alchemy Opal Magic(Pink-Blue),  Art Alchemy Acrylic paint(Pure Sunshine) and Art Alchemy Sparks(Unicorn's Hair.  

Once all the painting detail was finished I started adding some Art Ingredients Glass Beads(Licorice) and some Pink beads from my stash,  and then I added some Gold microbeads.  To adhere the beads and microbeads I used Art Basics 3D Glossy Gel.

Pure Sunshine Art Alchemy Acrylic paint was added to the back of the Art Pebbles,  I love how it pops with that bright yellow!

I just love adding any Finnabair texture paste to my projects,  there are so many possibilities with them!  

I did forget to mention I also used Art Extra Vagance White Crackle Texture Paste and I just love the texture it gives my projects!

I also added some White Crackle Texture Paste to the Wings and then painted with Art Alchemy Sparks(Fairy Wings) and Art Alchemy Opal Magic(Pink-Blue) plus Gold microbeads!

I hope you get a chance to join in on the challenge,  it truly is alot of fun and challenging!  Go check out the DT inspiration!

Thanks for stopping by!

Dt Project for 49 and Market Remember

Hi Crafty Friends,  I'm here with another layout using the Gorgeous Serendipitous Mini Collection.  I think this is one of my favorites!  I started with After the Rain paper for my background and then I tore paper from Rain Storm, Hazy Morning and Misty Breeze to begin my design.  I added some lace and some trim from my stash and then started adding flowers from the Flower Mini Series-Punch,  Mushroom and Country Blooms-Cloud.  I also got my metal dies out and diecut some flowers out for added texture.  Once I had everything in place I added the fun Wishing Bubbles-Grape Soda and also added Lasercuts from the collection.  I just love this collection since one of my favorite themes to create is Fairy and Dreamy!  

I love to add different textures to my projects,  so I added the Burlap Ribbon Roll and Jute Cording 5 Ply for more interest to all my layers.

For the last embellishment accent I added Dusty Attics Archival Board-Great Outdoors and I used Remember Archival Board to name this layout!  Then I added some seedbeads and sprinkled some acrylic paint to complete my layout!
As always thank you for stopping by,  please be sure to check back for more projects from the talented design team!  Happy Creating!

DT Layout for 49 and Market Remember

Hey Crafty Friends,  Phyllis here to share my DT project using the Gorgeous Serendipitous Collection!  
I started out by tearing "Misty Breeze" into 2 pieces then I started my layers with some of the Lasercut sheet from the collection.  I made some diecuts from my metal dies for more layering,  then created 3 spaces for photos,  this is not always easy but I managed to do it!  
I cut out some matting from "After the Rain" and "Rain Storm".  Then I placed flowers from Country Blooms "Violet" and Stargazers "Periwinkle" tucked them around the phot matting.  Then I fussy cut out some images from Serendipitous "Hazy Morning" for more layers.  I added some Laser cut Butterflies and a Dragonfly around the photo matting.  

To complete my layout I added Wishing Bubbles "Grape Soda" for more dimension along with some Beads and Art Stones from my stash.  I piled the embellishments on and added Dusty Attic's "Great Outdoors"!   And of course I love the look of flicked paint!  

Be sure to check out the Design Team Projects,  so inspiring!  Thank you for stopping by!  

Happy Creating!
