Go Fish - Simon Monday Challenge


It's Monday afternoon here which I really like due to 2 reasons:
1. I'm leaving the office
2. It's Monday Challenge time over Simon Says Stamp!


That is more than enough to be happy about, right?
I suggest you to join us asap and have a great Monday as well!

As always you can win a $50 voucher to spend at Simon Says Stamp Store!


My art journal pages tell a story of two extremely hungry Crazy Cats.
Ther have never enough fishes but it seems there are no fish left in the lake.


This are the steps I took to tell this story:

1. Cover the pages with White Gesso.
2. Join two pages wet with gesso, wait a while and separate them. 
This will give you a great structure of the background.
3. Place some crumbled tissues on the wet gesso, spray with Blue and Teal.
4. Touch randomly the "waves" with Opal Magic Acrylic Paint.
5. Apply Mod Podge above the water and place some "stones"
6. Spray with Pumice Stone and Ground Espresso, let it melt together.
7. Apply Tumbled Glass and Infusions where the sky is.
8. Distress the edges of the sky with Festive Berries and Rusty Hinge.
9. Stamp the fishbones in the water and on the seashore.
10. Place the Crazy Cats colored with Distress Inks
11. For fishing rod: wind two short sticks with twine, glue it and add a float.

Summer Fun - SSS Monday Challenge


Summertime! Isn't it a best time of the year? I guess it is!


Here at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge we invite you to spread your wings and share with us your SUMMER FUN projects. 
Summer cards, layouts, albums from your summer journeys, anything!

As always the best Simon Says Stamp Store ever is sponsoring a $50 voucher!


 Ok, to be honest I had completely other idea of a project for today.
But there was an accident on my craft desk....

So when life gives you lemons (pouring half bottle of mist!)...


Take it and make a lemonade (lots of background for using later)...


This is how my Summer Fun project has started or was forced to start :-)


I took my accidental blue background and sprayed with water 
to get lighter look and drops marks on it. 
I applied texture paste throught one of my fave TCW Mini Coaster stencil 
which SSS Store doesn't have at the moment just like 
Kelly Purkey Flamingo die but there are lots of amazing 
TCW stencils  in the Store and other fabulous flamingos dies
I stamped Rings stamp with Dylusions White Paint at the top of my tag 
The next step was die cutting: flamingo inked with Dylusions Chery Pie Spray, water made from Mixed Media Die and the sun inked 
and die cut from the Sribbles and Splat die set.
