The Beauty of Spring

The beauty of spring

Hey crafty friends, I up again on the Victorine Originals blog this week to share a pretty yet simple card with you all. 

This beautiful flower stamp is so pretty and reminded me of all the blooming going around right now. 

I dug thru my paper stash and found this beautiful nature pattern paper from club scrap. I actually picked this up at a flea market along with some other sets they sent out. Love it. I layered a few different colors to help bring out the colors. I stamped my image a few times and only colored/highlighted the main flower with a pretty purple gel pen from super doodle. 
Sorry the photo is darker as it was a cloudy day before the rain. I still love the way it made the glitter shine.

Simply Me Dreamcatcher

Simply Me 

Hello crafty friends,
Today is my first post as one of the new DT over on the Victorine Originals blog.  Woot!  Make you go check out our blog and see all the great and amazing projects the design team is creating.  For my project today, I decided to do something I am comfortable doing, a mixed media canvas using the Dream catcher stamp.

When I first saw this stamp, I fell in love with it. It's simple and beautiful. 

Starting out with a 6X6 canvas, I added blues using Decoart media (cyan, turquoise &teal).  I then speckled paint around the background as well as the flowers I added later with cyan, white & magenta. As I was waiting for that to dry, I grabbed a price of brown cardstock & rubbed it down with Tim Holtz Distress paint-walnut stain, then stamped my image in white & then black. Tearing around the image to give it the look I wanted. I used Ken Olivers, color burst to add color to a white lace like paper I had. 
After finding all the accessories from my stash and the perfect wood veneer saying by simple stories, I began to place everything together, moving peices around until they found their spot on the canvas.
Sometimes that takes a while, but if your new to mixed media anything, don't give up. Just keep moving those peices until they fit. You may have to take away and add something different, but it's all worth it in the end. 

I hope you've enjoyed my post today, I have added a list of all supplies used at the end of this post.
