Imagine the art world altered canvas with Art Anthology

Hello my dear crafty friends! Irit is here today and my project is actually a small tribute to my love of arts and as you can see from the project it's not just fine arts, but everything art related. On this wall decoration I made a collage of all possible arts and you can find ballet, music, fine arts, movies and theatre that all together make this imaginative project. I used canvas as my base and then arranged the collage using chipboards, wooden piece, clay pieces and all together was painted and misted with Art Anthology products.

  As always I made the full step by step tutorial for you to follow HERE: Check out How to Make All You Need Is Art Canvas by Art Anthology on Snapguide.

 And here is a full Art Anthology products list: Scale stencil  Squared stencil Cayman Sorbet Orchide Velvet Cameo Sorbet Fiji Velvet Wisteria Sorbet Rose Velvet Vegas Gold Sorbet Wild Orchid Colorations spray

As you can see it's just an inspirational project. You can make it with other items as your own tribute to arts. On the other hand it can be done as a tribute to sports, nature, technology or whatever topic you choose. Hope you  liked my wall deco and see you next month with more Art Anthology inspiration!

Project life spreads with Scrapmatts

Hello my dear crafty friends!
Today I decided to share something that is totally different for me: Pocket scrapbooking double page spread.
I am not a big fan of Project Life kind of scrapbooking as this is totally flat kind of crafting.
But as  always try to make something different as much as I can I decided to make double page with 8*8'' pockets and I really love the result and the easy life of such kind of crafting.
So here are both pages made with new Natures spirit Scrapberry's collection.
The only thing that was added to those pages other than paper and some metal pieces were Scrapmatts chipboards as I had to add some interest to those so flat pockets and those chippies are just the perfect add- on to flat pages.

Here is the first side of the double pager:

 And this is the second side of it and I am sorry for the pretty bad photos , but it's totally impossible the get great photos inside the plastic pockets.

 And now for some close- ups to the parts of the layouts.
As you can see I added a lot of Scrapberry's charms to the project as they are gorgeous and still flat pieces.

 And here is my recycling trick: use the collection name as a part of your project.
Nature spirit is just the collection name I cut and used over the photo title.

Metal flairs are also very good embellishments for flat pocket pages.

Some resin pieces can be added to the pages if those are flat piece.

Scrapmatts products used :
Scrap words 22 CB1236
Grass 02 CB5100
Assorted words 02 CB1136
Nautical Designs 04 CB1221
String circles 07 CB4071
Ornate frames 22 CB1220

Topflight Doodle your stamps inspiration

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my weekly Topflight Stamp shop post.
This week the design team was challenged to work with a doodling range of stamps from Leane Creatief range originated in Netherlands.
This is my very first time to doodle anything, so it took me quite awhile to get the proper doodling pen.
And after a few tries the pen of choice is Pigma Micron 0.1 black pen.

 Here is the stamp I used to make this card: Flower Pot

Leane Creatief Doodle Clear Stamp - Flower Pot

The sentiment I used is from For the Love of Stamps Barrow of Blooms set.
For the Love of Stamps - Barrow of Blooms - Clear Stamp Set

I made the stamped background with the same stamps using white pigmented ink and white embossing powder over Kraft cardstock and then colored the images with distress markers.
The main image was stamped over white cardstock with black ink and heat embossing and then colored with the same distress markers inside.

Then I doodled over each piece of the stamped image and tried to make each petal different.

I hope that you liked my doodling and this stamp.
If you wish to see more of my work you are mostly welcome to my own blog.
See you next week with the different inspiration.

Trust your journey altered canvas with BoBunny and Pentart

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my new BoBunny post.
Today I am going to share a pretty big altered Mixed Media canvas.
I am still waiting for my new BoBunny collections to come and thanks to our very " fast" postal service it will take  a few more days or even weeks. So I decided to make a project with the most general BoBunny products and those products are just perfect for any Mixed Media project.

Trust Your Journey altered Mixed Media canvas by Irit Shalom

The base was made over the flat 13.5*9.5'' canvas, but if you don't have any you sure can use a thick chipboard piece as this is just a base for those chipboard rectangles glued over the canvas.
I used old recycled chipboard and just arranged them to fit the canvas size. Four brads were added in each and every  piece, but only four corner ones are BoBunny brads as I just used the very simple small craft store brads for the background.
Then the background was painted with black gesso, misted with bronze spray and waxes were added randomly.
Three BoBunny stencils were used with glitter paste mostly on the outer spots of the project with large clock added partly in the middle.
I used a couple of chipboard sets for the main spot in the middle as the background and the sentiment.
Die cuts were made from BoBunny Double dot cardstocks and painted to this vintage patina look with a combination of Pentart paints.
BoBunny flowers were painted and misted too and got this metallic look (originally green).
 Now let me show the whole project again and then to show you some close-ups.

 This is the central spot from the front:

And here how it looks from the side:

 And my altered flowers :

 More close-ups to background:

 On this photo you can see the white stamped background and 3d powder mixed with gel paste and acrylic paint.
Also you can see the gold transfers, stencilled part and different mediums over the background.

I hope that you liked my Mixed Media project and just to add- everything here is BoBunny or Pentart, but the recycled chipboard and small brads.So you don't need to scroll a lot of shops, but to go to BoBunny shop and to get whatever you need to make the similar project.

Harmony Mixed Media layout

Hello my dear friends!
Today I want to share a new layout made just for challenges.
How about this? I really, actually made something out of my " DT zone and I am very proud about it.
First ist was quite awhile since I made a layout. Second I made it in Mixed Media style and usually my scrapbooking is pretty much classic.
So here it is. I called it Harmony as it was made for More than Words challenge and they asked for Harmony as inspiration and a song  lirycs are added on the top twice and are the Beatles " All you need is love".
The photo of my daughter and her husband tells everything- they do live in harmony . The embellishments were added to imitate both of them. He is this hard core style  person so I added all cogs and other Steampunk things. She is a tender, loving, delicate female and this is why I added flowers and butterflies. Together they are a total Harmony.

So here are the challenges I made this layout for
More than Words

Kaisercraft  - Cogs, but I used their products and the only thing that is not Kaiser are flowers and a part of cogs. Everything else- paper, die cuts, stamps, stencils are Kaisercraft.

Topflight stamps shop free style inspiration

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my mid August inspiration made for Topflight Stamps shop.
This is a week to show some of my personal style and as I have a lot of styles I picked a Clean and Simple for this showcase.
But even with  CAS style this card has some Mixed Media add-ons such as using a stencil with clear modelling paste around the heat embossed stamped image.

The stamps I used are from Visible Image UK company and I just adore their Mixed Media style of images.
This is a stamp set I used - Jazz it up set

Visible Image - Jazz It Up - Clear Polymer Stamp Set

 My background was made with Tando stencil and new Ranger Distress Oxide inks.
The stamping was made with Memento Luxe ink and heat embossed with clear powder.

Thanks for reading my weekly post.
If you would like to see more of my work you are mostly welcome to my own blog.

Tando Summer door hanger

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my new altered project.
It still time to make a  Summer project and mine is this totally bright door hanger.

I used a couple of Tando masks to make the heat embossed background and worked with DecoArt Media line paints and mediums to make the background as shiny as it looks.
The chipboard shapes were painted and then covered with clear Crackle Glaze.
The birdy was covered with white crackle paint.

Can you see the difference of those two mediums? The glaze comes over the paint. The paint is covered with another paints/mists over the dry surface.

 I also added the ceackle glaze over the edges and inside the " white spaces" and you can see it shown.

Hope that you liked my small  Mixed Media project!
Happy Summer to anyone where  Summer shines!
I enter this to some web challenges:
Anything goes to Emerald Creek
