Try it on Tuesdays Challenge *FANTASY* ~ Guest Designer

 Hello Creatives 

Delighted to be invited to be Guest Designer for 
Try it on Tuesday and a real pleasure to create a 
project for their Fortnightly challenge theme. 

Over the next two weeks their theme is *Fantasy* 
The Try it on Tuesday Design Team explain all HERE 

My project is a Fantasy Forest journal page with the background 
sketched, painted with watercolour overlaid with coloured pencils. 
Dots of acrylic paints create a woodland carpet of wildflowers...

The Fairy is taken from a colouring book coloured with pencil 
cut then pasted onto my journal page. To complete my Fantasy 
project I added mystical orbs dancing around the woodland Fai...

Do pop on over HERE to see what the 
Try it on Tuesday Design Team have created to inspire you 
They look forward to seeing your *Fantasy* projects...

Thank you again to the Design Team for inviting me to be

It's a.. Beautiful day...

 Hello everyone,  

I was blessed to have some free time this week 
so therapeutic to have a creative play day.. 

This journal background is made up of torn scraps, napkins 
and a spotty glassine bag painted, dotted and doodled 
all edged with machine stitch. 

The centre piece I'd intended to be a book mark but the painted blues 
of the stamped blue tit and coffee cup blended so well with the page.

All reminding me of the song Beautiful day by U2 
about finding joy in the small things in life. 

The focal bird brought to life the line 
*And see the bird with a leaf in her mouth
After the flood all the colors came out*

Definitely a beautiful day.. Bird Song a cuppa and crafting.. 

Stay safe and creative Hugs Tracey xx

Creative Artiste #103 Challenge ~ Anything Mixed Media Goes

Hello Creatives 

Welcome to Creative Artiste's Monthly Challenge 
our theme is always Anything Mixed Media Goes... 

My April mixed media journal page is created around a focal 
stamped image surrounded by textured glitter paste scraped 
through a stencil. Tracing around the hexagonal honeycomb 
using a 3D Gold glue pen I also enamel embossed those 
background ovals to add extra interest.

Stamping the image out multiple times colouring with pencil 
and alcohol markers this enabled me to cut and layer up extra 
leaves and flowers along with giving me the ability to recreate
 a fluffy Bumblebee by cutting and sticking a bright yellow 
pom pom and eyelash wool, a fun Spring time project... 

We hope you will share your own Mixed Media Makes 
this month with the Design Team HERE  

We look forward to seeing you this April @

Stay safe & creative 
Hugs Tracey xx
