Mixed Media Altered Embroidery Hoop with Silk Foam Flowers by Tracey

Hello dear Scrap & Craft friends!

It's Tracey back with a sweet mixed media altered embroidery hoop featuring handcrafted Silk Foam flowers along with the gorgeous Studio75 Violet Love Collection and fabulous chipboard and stamps from the Scrap & Craft Store. I really enjoyed creating this darling home decor piece!

Tips and Techniques
These beautiful flowers are created with Silk Foam colored with three purple and blue shades of oil pastels. I used the Metal Ball Tool Set from the store to shape the petals.

The gorgeous Anemone Border Botanical Chipboard piece was heat embossed in pale gold, then rubbed with amethyst art wax.

Another close-up shot of the flowers from a different angle. You can see the Artistiko Cog tucked into the cluster. The grid pattern on the background paper is stamped with the Agateria Grille Clear Stamp.

I added a bit of extra purple below the sentiment from the Violet Love collection with a watercolor marker. Bambino Glue from the store is used to adhere Prills, microbeads, mica flakes, rhinestones, and pearls.

I hope you've been inspired to grab your Scrap & Craft supplies
and create something beautiful today.

Mixed Media tag ...'FLY'

Hello everyone and Happy Sunday! My DT project for today is a  Mixed Media Tag...they are fun to make and it could be a simple and fairly fast gift for any occasion.

Let's begin...As a base I have used a CHIPBOARD TAG, covered with white gesso, then cut few strips from the CHERRY BLOSSOM 6x6 paper set and glued in the middle...a light wash of white gesso, then added some interest with GRILLE #3 STAMP and modeling paste with ZIGZAG Small STENCIL...I have used yellow and black inks, both sprays and ink pads to add colour, then lighten up a bit with white gesso. Stamped some more images with black ink, then glued other small strips of paper, a stamped butterfly and fussy cut a flower from ALWAYS TOGETHER 12x12 paper set.
Spattered with inks, glued some black thread and a word sticker.

Here's the supplies used from SCRAP & CRAFT STORE:


Hope you enjoyed this project and got inspired...thanks for stopping by and...see you next time!

"Hearts" birthday card with Violet Love

hello crafty friends! It's Lynne here today with a dimensional card I created with the beautiful Violet Love collection by Studio75. I've been really enjoying hunting down interesting card designs to try with the lovely papers carried here at Scrap and Craft; I definitely want to adapt this one to a Christmas card design

Studio 75 Violet Love 12x12 paper pack
Adhesive pearls, pink

Other than a few adhesive pearls, I kept my embellishments flat so the card would fold flat enough to go into an envelope.

The paper is so delicate and pretty, and comes with a sheet of sentiments, so you can make a beautiful card for any occasion! I'd love to see what you create with Violet Love...have a wonderfully creative week xx

Mixed Media Art Brush with Silk Foam Flower by Tracey Sabella

Hello dear Scrap & Craft friends!

It's Tracey back to share a mixed media art brush featuring silk foam and chipboard from the Scrap & Craft Store. You can find details and close-ups below.

Tips and Techniques
This handcrafted flower is created with Silk Foam, shaped with the Metal Ball Tool Set, and colored with Distress Oxide inks. The white Mini Stamen are also from the store.

The Anemone Fabian Ornaments Chipboard and Artistiko Cog are heat embossed with pale gold embossing powder.

The wings are created with paper clay in a silicone mold, set aside to dry, then brushed with metallic paint and art wax. The metal "Art" piece is also brushed with metallic paint and wax. The brush has several layers of impasto and metallic paints along with gesso and art wax. I used Bambino Glue from the store to adhere regular and mini art stones around the cluster.

 This gorgeous Misz Masz Chipboard Butterfly is brushed with metallic paint and the edges with gold art wax. Bambino Glue is a great way to adhere microbeads for a textured body.

The handle of the brush is stenciled with light molding paste. The decorative metal piece is painted and waxed like the rest of the brush and centered with a coordinating rhinestone from my stash.

I hope you've been inspired to grab your Scrap & Craft supplies
and create something beautiful today.

Daydream Bookmark with Simona

Hello everyone! Simona's here with a new project for Scrap & Craft DT...
Finally my Summer holidays are about to start and one of my favourite things to do on the beach is to relax under the umbrella with a nice book, so I decided to create  a super cute and fast bookmark!

I cut  a 6,5 cm strip from a sheet of  a 30x30 cm WHITE CARDSTOCK, then scored in half, creased well and set aside. Then I have chosen two pages from 'DAYDREAM' 6x6 in. paper pad by Lemoncraft, and cut two strips from each page, slightly smaller than the base, to cover the four sides, and glued them with BAMBINO GLUE 45 gr. tube.

Then glued two small magnets on the inside for closure,  added sentiments stickers, and a beautiful chipboard DREAM-CATCHER by Scrapiniec, painted to match the papers used.

Very simple but romantic, thanks to those beautiful patterned papers...and now I am ready to show it off on the beach!

Here's the supplies used from SCRAP & CRAFT STORE:

Thank you for stopping by...have a great Sunday and...see you next time!

Yellow roses

Hello crafty friends

It's Monika today with new post and this time I made flower composition out of silk foam. 
First I made the biggest rose by cutting all the petals by hand, it's a very simple and easy and you can see it on one of my old video tutorials ---> HERE
 Once all the petals were ready, I took yellow ink pad and just brushed the colour on the tips of each petal. Rolled and unfolded slightly to create petal like shape and look.

To make leaves I used universal leaf mould and pressed each hand-cutted leaf against it to create natural looking veins and brushed it with a touch of green ink.

For the centre of the roses I used yellow stamens.

Love & Friendship accordion album

Hi crafty friends! It's Lynne here with a cheery little album filled with quotes about love and friendship, made with the sweet and pretty Cherry Blossom collection from Studio75.

I had a bulletin board with these happy quotes and more on the door of t craft room, but I took them down when I needed the space for chipboard, and I missed seeing them, so I thought this little book would be a great way to showcase some of my favourites.
The album itself is the ATC Ticket Journal from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts.

 I fussy cut some of the  flowers from the papers, and the larger flowers came from the 12x12 paper set. Some lace, ribbon and punchwork completed the pages, and I added some dimensional artificial flowers to the top page.

 I'm so glad you stopped by to see my latest project and I hope you enjoyed my collection of happy quotes; have a wonderful week, full of love and friendship!
