Guest Designer @ Try it on Tuesday ~ Feminine

 Hello Creative Friends, 

Always an honour to be invited to be Guest Designer 
@ Try it on Tuesday and a real pleasure to accept. 

With their new fortnightly Theme of *Feminine*, 
there's many ways to interpret that one single word.

For me something Feminine is soft and gentle..

This studio light stamp is so graceful with layered flowers, 
and a little lace. It's busy background was replaced using 
texture paste through a Stamperia Cosmos astronomy and 
numbers stencil. Painted in delicate pastels ties 
everything together so peacefully . 

 The Try it on Tuesday Team will love seeing your take 
on their Feminine theme right HERE, they give the 
warmest of welcomes and inspiration galore 
from the super talented TioT design team. 

BIG Thank you's from me...

Creative Hugs 
Tracey xx 

**Sadly due to unforeseen circumstances I am AFK but 
as soon as able i'll be sure to catch up with you all** 
 Take good care everyone

Creative Artiste's *May Mixed Media* Challenge #71

Hello Creative Friends, 

First Friday of the month so time to welcome 
our theme is always *Anything Mixed Media Goes* 

Today i'm bringing past things into the present... 

This ATC is the last of a bunch made for gifts in 2020. 
Created by stamping the Lily onto MDF the image was traced 
using liner pen, painted with distress paint then covered with 
UTEE and heat embossed several times to create a tile effect.

Making use of a broken picture frame onto it's backboard texture paste 
is pushed through a stencil then painted in colours similar to the ATC. 

Distress ink is painted through the same stencil onto the inner mount 
with it's aperture painted and edged with tarnished brass. 

The outer frame is painted in petrol blue with corner fastenings 
attached to help strengthen the frame with it's missing glass.

Reassembled the ATC becomes the main focal with offcuts of lace 
glued into every corner to compliment the finished redesign. 

I love the vibrant colours of this mixed media frame.. 
Such a cheerful creation.

If you like to mix up your media, do share your creations 
with the Creative Design Team and join in with our

Hugs Tracey xx
