Paperbabe Stamps Challenge ~ #162 Anything Goes

 Hello Everyone 

It's time again for a new Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #162

I have a postcard sized journal page to share with you today, 
with stencilled background I've layered a Paperbabe Stamps face 
fabric torso and cut out template hair coloured in with pencil. 

Her hair represents a ray of sunshine against the stormy background, 
finished with stitched edging & quote from the Flourish and Grow set.

Come and share your *Anything Goes* creations over HERE 
for the chance to win a Paperbabe Stamps prize of your choice...

Creative wishes

Remember to LOVE yourself..

 Hello everyone

I'm sharing some love with you all today 
revisiting a tutorial from last year that I Loved 
hosted by the very talented Laly Mille. 

This time created in my February junk journal rather than on canvas. 
it's created by collaging recycled scrap papers each with hand written 
words of self care, love, gratitude and kindness to oneself. 

Covering those written messages with gesso and paint I drew a 
focal heart collaged and over painted again, doodling quotes 
around the heart, adding machine stitch on the page edge...

As Valentine's Day approaches it can be overwhelming, 
please remember to LOVE yourself... 

Take care everyone
Creative Hugs

Creative Artiste ~ February Mixed Media Challenge #79

Hello Creative Friends 

Welcome to Creative Artiste first Challenge of 2022
our theme is always Anything Mixed Media Goes... 

Today i'm sharing the beginnings of my February Junk Journal.
Created from recycled packaging, old papers and scraps
documenting my days like a diary with pictures...

As February is often related to the month of love, I'm filling my pages with 
things I adore and cherish, vintage scraps, washi tape, lace and ephemera 
held together with a fashioned flowery lace heart closure and wax seal. 

A handmade twisted wire heart embellishes a mini bookmark, crafted from 
pretty little scraps sewn together all just too precious to throw away.

This February Junk Journal's story has only just begun..

Whether you choose to use paper, paint and stencils, alter projects, 
create journal pages, ATC's, Tags, Cards and more if you create using a 
variety of media we'd love you to share your makes with us over HERE

 Creative hugs & warm wishes 
Tracey xx
