Life, Love and Dream

My little lady is going to a fashion show all decked out in her Gelli Printed dress. I used Prima and Dylusions stamped images on this mixed media page. The frame behind the prima doll is a Tim Holtz die cut. Embellishment is from my stash. Background and die cut were painted with TH products.  Image was painted with my watercolors.

Bells with Holly Card

I loved Tim's tag so much that I wanted to see if I could make something with supplies I have in my stash. His new stencils are on my wish-list when available. 

Tim's Distress inks were used to color my stencil and a harlequin stencil.  Vines were made with Tim's Adirondack fillable pen filled with Vintage photo refill ink. Seam binding was inked with Tim's Distress Festive Berries ink pad. Tim's ideology word band and tissue tape were used. The holly stencil, bow and bells were made with my Silhouette. Bells and bow were painted with Tim's Distress paints and Distress ink. Distress Stickles were used on paper bow. I used a trimmed to fit piece of red card stock and green folded card with this tag. 

Check out Tim's tag using his Harlequin and Holly new stencils here:

Mixed Media Drawing

A couple of days ago, I sat down with a sharpie pen and watercolor crayons, without looking at anything this is what I made. It's been awhile since I've done anything like this,  I'm a bit rusty.
