New October Challenge over at SASPC

Hi everyone Dee here with a Gothic tag for you
I love gothic it reminds me of vampires 
and ghosts.
 the base of this tag was inspired by France Pappillon 
and one of her mixed media shorty video's.
 I just layered it up with deco art's ferro iron paste and
a strip of wire mesh.
 A few bits of embossed elements and a wax compass
I did also make my own stamped tissue 
paper just visible in this photo.
 Another home made embellishment.
 a melted drop of embossing metal below .
 The stamp used to create this was a chocolate baroque 
gothic fragments.
I hope you all like my tag and a big thank you to France Papillon for all 
of the inspiration she inspires in us.
Cheers Dee x

New Challenge over at SASPC

Hi everyone Dee here with my latest post for the SASPC challenge
I did something slightly different with this tag I used an acrylic 
pour to create the background for this tag.
I also used paper clay pieces cogs and watch parts from a mould I assembled
them all together on a circle.
I painted with Deco art raw umber fluid acrylic, I then used Finnabairs
 wax and followed with Antiquing cream in both white and patina,
Black modelling paste was put through a deco art stencil.
A close up of the background.
This shows the background from a different view.
Little paperclay cogs to the right corner of the tag.
I hope you all like what I did with this Tag it is such an interesting 
result with paint pouring.
I am proud to be a member of Sandee & amelie's design team.
Please feel free to let us know what you think

  4. Once dry follow with the Vintage wash in Turquoise knocking back with a dry cloth and a baby wipe in the area's that i wanted clear colour follow this with the Patina Vintage wash.
  5. For the inside I wanted a more vibrant red so used the Beige & Red Orange with only a tiny bit of Turquoise.
  6. Seal the whole surface with Soft Touch Varnish.
  7. Once all dry I stamped the script stamp randomly using Stazon ink.
  8. I then followed this with the alphabet stamp and versfine ink using the stamp and bond then heat set.

Teal into Rust Canvas

I made this canvas using lots and lots of different technique's and crackle mediums
I used so many I can't remember what exactly I did. I do Know that it was 
all inspired by France papillon.
What I do remember was that I built it all up gradually.
This was a small canvas board about A4 size.
I tripple embossed a couple of Tando circles and I used a embossing folder
to make the rulers.
One was used with copper sheet and one on card.
I used a quinacridone gold along with autumn leaves gold along with
Prussian Blue hue & teal magicals with glazing medium was used
to colour it.
Micro beads along with art stones were put into the pastes while wet.
Prussian Blue hue along with teal magicals with glazing medium was used
to colour it.
I Attached the circles to the canvas to complete the piece.
I hope you all like my canvas please feel free to leave me a comment or two as
