A Tag and a Mini Canvas Magnet for a Friend

Hi, friends!
Just a quick post today to share with you a mixed media tag and a mini canvas magnet I created for my lovely blog friend, a wonderful teamie and a super talented Niki from  Pawsitively Creative, for her birthday.

I wanted to make something vibrant and I decided to make a tag rather than a regular card. 
This is what I came up with.

I used my Dylusions paints, my Amsterdam neon paints, some stencils (Dylusions, TCW, Tim Holtz), Dina Wakley stamp, a pice of canvas, my Inktense pencils and some yarn. I also included some sewing. I added a pink pompom trim and a vintage button for some interest.

Since Niki loves stempunk style, I decide to create a mini canvas magnet using some cogs, a pice of a vintage German paper, a vintage music notes sheet and I put some melted bees wax on top.

That's it for today.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog and leaving lovely comments! I read and appreciate each and every one of them!

Anniversary challenge at Anything But Cute

Hi, everyone!
I have some wonderful news to share with you today! It's our first anniversary at Anything But Cute mixed media challenge blog and I am so excited! I can't believe I was a member of such a fantastic design team for a whole year! How awesome is that!

As we celebrate our First Anniversary at Anything But Cute, we want you to celebrate what you do best...mixed media! This is your chance to do it your way, in your favourite pull out those inks and paints and show us what you're made of! You can make anything you want, in any theme you want and any style you want, just as long as it has some mixed media products on it and no cute images. HAVE FUN!

I wanted to celebrate my style and our first anniversary with this colorful handmade canvas art journal. 

Tag Book - Think Pink

Hello, crafty friends!
It's my turn to host the challenge at Stamps and Stencils and I have chosen the theme 'Think Pink'!

 For this challenge we would love to see a mixed media project that has some pink in it somewhere! The possibilities are endless! Don't forget to include some stamping or stencilling or both in your mixed media project! We can't wait to see what you create!   
I decided to create a mixed media tag book using vibrant colors, hand dyed fabrics and a lot od sewing.
This is what I came up with.
