Hello everyone! I have to tell you, this month's theme had me a little stumped - Ordinary Day.  Of course, we all like to think an ordinary day is just creating beautiful things all the time. This canvas started out purple and had crackle that didn't crack - it was a mess! So I took a bad idea and turned it into a grungy work of art! I guess it turned out to be an 'ordinary day' in the life of a mixed media artist!

I first covered the canvas with a scrap of paper bag that had a neat, vintage newspaper print printed on it. Then, I just started adding to it!

I tore a piece of beige tissue paper and applied olive oil to make it transparent (that's how I make my own vellum!) - it's on the right side and under my 50s girl. There's also a little tulle and some shredded cardboard from packing material on the side.



Black ink really adds to the grungy look. And Seth's Beeswax, Patina, and Rust powders take it over the top! These little plastic boxes are great for trinkets and take the embossing powders well! Just be sure to move your heat gun around or it might start melting. But that could look cool, too! And wire and rusty metal is always a plus!





Thanks for stopping by the blog here at Emerald Creek! I hope you'll play along with us and do some shopping - we DARE you!

Hello all

I am back with another project for Emerald Creek Craft Supplies this month. As some of you may know, i started my weightloss journey in March last year and to date i have lost 2st 2lb. However sometimes the weight does not come off for a few weeks and it is frustrating. So i created the motivation fairy as part of my motivation art journal.


I started off by using a StencilGirl (R) mask to add heavy gel medium to the page and then i sprinkled on Rocky Road Embossing Powder. It made me crave a Rocky Road bar so i switched to Dragons Egg for the next layer.


Then i added layers of Lindy's Magicals and let it all dry.



I added the stamps to the background and embossed them with Dragons Egg Embossing Powder.


I printed off a sheet of paper dolls and just cut out the pieces, Then arranged them on the page and glued them down. I then added little quotes to finish the page.




Thank you for visiting
