Xmas ATCs

Hello, hello!
Today I'm sharing my first Christmas project for this year
for Mixed Media Place Creative Gym!

This month challenge is host by our amazing and talented Tusia! 
Create a Xmas card, tag or ATC (only small forms are allowed).

I wanted to make some Christmas ATCs  for 6 special scrappy friends of mine and this challenge was the great opportunity to make the decision and get started working! 

I had these craft chipboards in my stash for a long time waiting for the right moment to transform into art pieces. They are only 2,5x3,5" and that was a challenge for me to work with so small areas.
I used papers, tags and stickers from the 7 Dots Studio Yuletide collection, a Christmas collection perfect for seasonal projects.

I placed all six of them on my craft desk and started working. First I used gold and red embossing powder with stamps to create a beautiful base to work on it.

Then I glued all the embellishments and worked with H2Os watercolors and a paintbrush on several spots.  I also painted the chipboard pieces and the flowers with them.

 Last thing to do was to make a shiny glue with 3D Gloss Gel and gold glitter. 3D Gloss Gel dries clear, so I wanted a little bit of sparkle to be shown on the finished project, that's why I added the gold glitter. I used it to glue some Art Ingredients like gold Glass Glitter and ruby Glass Beads, pretty Christmas colors, don't you think? :)

So, will you play with us at Mixed Media Place?
I can't wait to see your small form projects!

have a lovely crafty day!

Collect moments - art journal page

Hello everyone!
I created this art journal page for 2Crafty Chipboard.

I love using chipboard pieces on my journal pages 
because they are flat and make the perfect choice for clusters.
For this page I used a flower of the Gigi's set, a corner from the Elegant Set (which I cut in two pieces and used one of them) and some arrows from the Fast and Forward Set.

I painted all the chipboard pieces with H2Os watercolors  with a paintbrush.
Watercolors are very easy to use on chipboard and give a very beautiful look, a bright color and a little bit of shine.

A couple of tags for two special friends of mine.

Other supplies:
  • 2 Tags
  • Finnabair White Heavy Gesso
  • Finnabair 3D Gloss Gel

So. lets get started!

First I applied with a spatula the two different colors of Radiant Gels. They are so soft and shiny and dry very quickly!20151114_161753-resized-1400
After they were dry, I glued everything down and grabbed my H2Os. I sprayed some water and waited a couple of minutes...

I painted with a paintbrush here and there with all the colors of the H2Os. I also painted the ribbons. I really love this colorful result!

The 'enjoy' chipboard is painted with the Black Ice silk...
Last thing to do was to glue some Finnabair Art Ingredients (glass beads and glass glitter) on several spots and make some splashes with white gesso.
That was all for today :)
Have a lovely crafty day!
