Kim created a double mixed media page in her art journal, full of fun, She used the head & torso template with the female face and mixed it up with rabbit ears, the background was a great chance to use the stripes & gears stencil, the outfit completed in flock dots. She will be sharing the video for it tomorrow, so pop back to see.
I decided to participate in the Labour Day Sales event...
Labour Day is on Monday 3rd September, and is celebrated in the United States. During this popular shopping weekend, many retailers run special promotions and many shoppers are looking for a good deal.
I'm offering 50% off giclee prints, the perfect gift for you Uni Hall Decor, or back-to-school bedroom gift.
It might be a little ahead of Christmas shopping season... you decide.
Kim's interpretation of the sketch may seem a tad loose, a little artistic licence but all the fun for it! The fabulous fox is in place of the circle and the background was a fun experiment with the Iso Fun and Dots on stripes stencils, finished with hearts and a sentiment.
Tracey has taken the Gold theme to extreme using the Closed Eye Female Dinky Stamp to recreate in the style of Gustav Klimt's GOLD period, adding a gold border using the NEW Iso Fun Stencil all held within a Golden frame.
Terricreated a mixed media piece using the Clockwork layered frame. Using embossing paste and gilding flakes Terri added gold touches to her piece.

Good morning and welcome to our final post of introductions... today is all about stencils... we have eight new designs to add to our stencil collection hope you like them as much as the team...
This stencil coordinates with the previous release of doodle stars stamp set, the idea is the acetate indexing on the stamp set is the positioning of the stencil windows, I have a step by step below...
Dots on Strips
Paperbabe Stamps Mixed Media Stencils will be available to purchase on Sat 10th August.
They start from £4.75 up
Now onto my project...
Firstly I secured the acetate index sheet to the stencil with a little tape and placed them on my stamping platform, then positioned the individual star stamps on top(stamp floor facing up) to pick them all up in one go. Notice how I've placed them on the furthest point on the platform as I want to cover the whole piece of card without moving the stamps too many times... it will be clearer the more steps I show.
The stamps line up when the black fills the image, I've omitted the full solid stamps as these will be in the stencil.
Then simply stamp them in ink.
Then it's just a matter of moving the card behind the stencil and acetate to line up your next stamping position.
It gets easier the more you stamp, I only needed three moves to complete this width.
Then move the card to the right, keeping the stencil butted up to the corner, to finish the left panel.
Once I had stamped the stars six times I decided to move the stamps to a new position so I could cover my whole A5 sized cardstock. Still using the same process, with the stencil butted up to the corner of the stamping platform.
You can keep going on a much larger piece of card if you wanted to.
I decided to get my translucent embossing paste out to protect my stamped stars for when I go onto the next step.
Ahhhh paste has dried, it's clear and shiny, you could use clear embossing powder if you didn't have the time to wait for it to dry.
Have fun adding inks to the background the embossing paste has become a resist.
Here I have trimmed it down and used it as a background on my magic card.
You might have noticed the stencils being used in some of my other projects this week...
