Live ~ a mixed media canvas

Hi there!
I've got so much on my plate recently that I haven't had the time to make anything new, which really bugs me! Got so much left from CC102 I need to get done, but there just aren't enough hours in the day. Sounds familiar?

Anyway! :) Just wanted to post a mixed media canvas I did for Hobbykunst a while back. I was given a blank canvas and some oil pastels, and this is the result. Pictures borrowed from Hobbykunst's blog.

Thanks for looking!

Creative Chemistry 102 - Day 4

Hello, lovelies!
Let me just start by saying; YES, I know I've skipped Day 2 and 3. I'll get back to those when I have the time.. I'm way behind, so it doesn't really matter which day I complete first.. Today I really wanted to play with alcohol inks, so there you have it - Day 4 in CC102 became my day 2..

Anywaaaaaaaaaaaay.... Here are my tags!

Close ups..
 Faux Patina Technique

 Tinted Tinsel Technique

Ombre Technique

  Monoprint Technique

 Faded Layers Technique

This day's lesson has reminded me that I must play with alcohol inks more often!!!

A couple of ATCs - European Scrap Challenge

Here are the ATCs from round 2 and 3 in the European Scrap Challenge I'm currently participating in. Round 4 is now open for voting, and I'm entering in the categories ATC, Alter, Card and Mixed Media! I'm really honoured to have gotten this far in all the categories I entered!

Anyways.. Here are the ATCs!

Here's the one from round 2. It's made from this great ATC stamp from Tim Holtz / Stampers Anonymous. The background is made from Dylusions (I used the new Dylusions ink spray pad).
This one's from round 3. I used a TH stamp here too. I inked it up with various Distress markers. The star and rays got some Distress stickles Clear rock candy for an extra sparkle.. I'm not really super satisfied with this last one, but who cares - I got the votes I needed to go on to round 4.. lol

Can't wait to show you what I made in this round (can't do that until the voting closes)! Stay tuned!

Also, today is the first day of Creative Chemistry 102! Can't wait to get started! Whoop whoop!!
 See you in class?
