Creative Artiste ~ MAY Mixed Media Challenge #82

Hello Creative Friends 

where our theme is always Anything Mixed Media Goes

This month my MAY DT project is a mixed media journal page.

Pushing texture paste through a Stamperia stencil I painted 
the raised flowers with watercolour, acrylics and enamel accents. 

Gluing stamped, coloured and fussy cut Bluebells next to the Scabiosa, 
a large stamped and pencil coloured Monarch Butterfly stops to rest..

If you love mixing up your media be it paper, paint and stencils, 
collaged tags, journal pages, cards or creating projects from scratch 
please come and share your handmade creations with the team HERE 
and check out what the DT have created this month to inspire you... 

We look forward to seeing your Mixed Media creations. 

Stay safe and creative 
Hugs Tracey xx

Leaves and branches, April Junk and Heart of Glass ...

Hello everyone 

I hope you are all keeping well?? 
Another month where life stuff again absorbed me..
so here's a photo heavy end of April post from me

Watercolour studies of Photinia *Little Red Robin* 

Some pages from my April Junk Journal.. 
Mini eggs they were in short supply 😒 

Face doodle created from a paint spillage on package waste.

Caramel Kraft paper with stitched rice paper Butterfly

Painted night forest scene from a tutorial by Danielle Mack and 
a stamped scene titled *Morning has Broken* what a beautiful Hymn. 

and finally...

Another found face journal doodle and the attempt to turn this one into 
Debbie Harry, lead singer of the group Blondie using pencil and paint. 
As a 9 year old I remember singing Blondie songs into my hairbrush 😂

*Heart of Glass* was always a favourite track. 

Wishing you all a great weekend

People are Strange...

Hello everyone, 

Another quick post from me my crafty space is so 
messy creative time would be wasted cleaning it up so 
I've made use of old sketched faces found in a journal, 

Painted slightly caricature to resemble two main characters 
from the cast of The Lost Boys, one of my favourite Movies. 

I look back with nostalgia 35 years after it's release.. 
A cult vampire movie, scare jumps, funny one liner's. 
Oozing the 80's with a fab cover in it's soundtrack of  
The Door's *People are Strange* by Echo & the Bunnymen.
Brings back fond memories of cinema nights with college 
friends every time I watch it.. Happy happy days..
Creative Easter wishes 
Tracey xx
