Baby Love

    Life got busy,  and mojo left me behind.  I am currently finishing up projects for the Filipino Scrapbookers group.  Three more cards, and I am done for the assignments for the year.  Hooray!
  Just because I don't post here,  doesn't mean I am not creating stuff.
    I bought like a packet of these papers,  which I totally love since I don't have to punch punch around the page anymore.  The die cuts are from 1 page of Graphic 45 papers.  So nice!  It goes well with my Mamita and Baby Hans picture.    I also used a Prima Cherubim resin, Webster's papers for the flowers,   and Prima flowers.
   Totally loving this oh so cute Baby lay out.

Hello again.

Thanks for still sticking around even if I still do not update as  much.

I bought an extra Kaisercraft embellishment kit,  and I am working with that.  I mix it up with new Webster's papers.  I add butterflies from a Melissa Frances embellishment box and some resins.
I used some modeling/texture paste from my friend Karen Ngo.  I swear,  you don't need all the other mediums.  All you need is this one.  And maybe some gesso.
A lay out of my mommy.

The apple of my eye,  my nephew Hans making pa-cute.

  Crafting doesn't have to be expensive.  But when you source your products creatively,  it becomes like an addicting game.

A Saturday Class with Iris

Awesome mask technique.  Another way of using masks.  Get a mask and then paint alternating colors over it.

Used  mist and flicked it over the page.Used Martha Stewart circle punch for the doily.

Beautiful die cuts made from foam and used paint dabbers to add vibrant color.

Loved using pumice gel medium over the masks, and added color using pan pastel.  We used embossing ink to make the colors stick.

I made two extra lay outs so I can squeeze more out of the kit,  trying to bring the cost down.
Beautiful masks used.

a foray into mixed media using canvas.
