Dreamy Shabby Mixed Media Card Featuring Violet Love

 
Welcome to my creative space.

I am so delighted to be part of the 2019 Studio75 Design Team
alongside these talented artists.


I simply adore working with Studio75 products.
Today I'm sharing my first DT project with you.

The gorgeous Violet Love Paper Collection is perfect for this romantic, dreamy card. There are hints of golden yellow in the paper so I accented with beautiful flowers and embellishments in this color.

Tips and Techniques
One of the gorgeous Violet 6x6" papers is the base for my card.

I like to have cards on hand for special events and with this "own your dream" sentiment, it would be perfect for a variety of events from a birthday, to graduation, or even a job promotion.

The Violet Love 07 page from the 12 x12" collection includes the gorgeous leaves and doily which I fussy cut to tuck under and around the cluster which includes lovely 49 and Market Flowers, pearls, Anemone chipboard flourishes, and metal embellishments from my stash.

Bambino glue dries matte and perfectly clear, so is perfect to adhere bling like these Prills and Finnabair Microbeads.

The beautiful paper has hints of warm golden yellow, so I edged the base with gold pastel color and before adhering the embellishments, I spattered the background with white drawing ink.

Here you can see more of the texture details and the chipboard was painted with Finnabair Sparks paint for shimmery finish.

The background is stenciled with Finnabair Light Paste using a bubble wrap stencil, and while the molding paste was still wet, I sprinkled it with super fine glitter to add some lovely sparkle.  Once dry, I spritzed with Lindy's Jazzy Jivin' Purple color mist and water to settle into the crevices and highlight the texture.

The Misz Masz chipboard butterfly is painted with more Sparks paints.

The embellished card front is adhered to a Studio75 6x6" Heavy Weight Card which is nice and sturdy to hold the heavy embellishments.

Enjoy the Journey Masculine Mixed Media Card


Welcome back to my creative space.

I've been busy traveling to India and with Christmas activities, so it has been a couple months since I've posted a project. 

I had an amazing time teaching Master Classes for Itsy Bitsy's Creativity Carnival in December. Rashmi and Harish have a wonderful company with quality products. I simply adored working with their gorgeous Little Birdie Crafts products to create projects for my classes. 

The Creativity Carnival was fabulous. The open air venue was gorgeous and the event attracted 20,000 people for the two day event. An amazing feat for the first ever Carnival celebrating 10 years since they opened their first Itsy Bitsy Craft Store.

Since my trip, I've been busy with Christmas activities and planning a baby shower for our daughter, Elizabeth, who is expecting their first child. Dominic is due to arrive in March. We are so excited for the birth of our first grandson who will be joining our sweet granddaughter, Avery, who will be two in February. (Our son and beautiful daughter-in-law's girl.)

I created a quick card last week that I wanted to share with you. A young man we know is moving out of state and his friends had a going away party for him. I snuck in some time one morning to create a quick card for him. I grabbed my 49 and Market Vintage Artistry 6x6" Paper Pack, loads of Prima Finnabair products and embellishments, and some flea market finds to create the card. I hope you like it.

Tips and Techniques
I just adore creating masculine cards and wanted to keep with a color palette that a guy would enjoy. Finnabair's rust pastes added just the right color with the metal gears and embellishments. I also added some Turquoise Rust Effects Paste from the Northern Lights Set for a patina effect. The rust pastes are primarily used on the molded wings which I brushed with black gesso first. I used the rust pastes directly on the metal elements. While the paste was still wet, I misted it with water so it would flow down onto the background paper and look like the elements had rusted in place. I just adore this effect. Once dry, I lightly rubbed the wings and steampunk blade piece with Aged Brass Metallique Wax to highlight the texture.

I added some water to the stencil brush I used for the rust paste and added a bit of color around the edges of the paper.

The background paper was brushed with clear gesso to help reduce warping, then stenciled with Finnabair's gorgeous Manuscript Stencil using her White Gold Icing Paste. I just bought the Icing Pastes and this is the first time I have had a chance to work with these luscious, shimmery pastes. They are so rich and creamy, a real delight to create with. 

I used a soft brush to add just a little Aged Brass Wax to the light bulb so it looks like it is glowing.

Black microbeads are added for grungy texture. I thought this Quote Chip from Tim Holtz was just perfect for the occasion. I added some of the watered down rust pastes to color.

"Don't Forget to Fly" Shabby Mixed Media Card for Scrap & Craft

Welcome to my creative space!

I'm here to share my final post as a designer for Scrap & Craft. Thank you Aneta, for the wonderful opportunity to create with such gorgeous products from your amazing shop! The store remains open, so please return often to pick up your favorite supplies. 

This sweet card features gorgeous Studio75 Berry Copse paper along with beautiful chipboard and flowers from the store. I just had to use this "don't forget to fly" sentiment with the fabulous SnipArt hot air balloon chippie making this a card that can be used for a variety of occasions.

This lovely floral cluster includes a Magnolia Flower, Ivory Mulberry Rose, and Pale Pink Mulberry Roses from the store along with some beauties from 49 and Market. I dry brushed the flowers and stamen with white gesso, then applied Finnabair's Soft Matte Gel Medium and sprinkled lightly with white gold microbeads to add sparkle and texture. 

I used Bambino Glue to adhere the Prills that I tucked in for color and texture.

The lovely Craft Molly Floral Corners Chipboard was snipped in half, then heat embossed in white, then again with sparkling holographic embossing powder. 

I used fabulous Studio75 The Berry Copse paper from the 6x6" pad for the background. To add texture and more sparkle, I stenciled Finnabar's Light Paste through an Art Anthology Lotus Stencil across most of the background and then while the paste was still wet, I sprinkled generously with Donna Salazar's Pralines & Cream Twinkle Dust Glitter to give a golden shimmery glow.

***Tip***
Once the glittered molding paste is completely dry,
used canned air to blow off any excess glitter.

Ah, this is my favorite part of the card. I cut a piece of coordinating paper from the Berry Copse pack to fit the back of the balloon and heat embossed the chipboard with bronze embossing powder. This tiny Finnabair Mechanicals Tin Heart fit perfectly over the basket of the hot air balloon. It is rubbed with metallic paint and Finnabair Waxes to give a grungy vintage feel. 

The background is stamped with 49 and Market's 1797 stamp in sepia ink, then spattered with white drawing ink.

Welcome to my creative space!

Today I have a sweet mixed media altered embroidery hoop featuring handcrafted Silk Foam flowers along with the gorgeous Studio75 Violet Love Collection and fabulous chipboard and stamps from the Scrap & Craft Store. I really enjoyed creating this darling home decor piece!

These beautiful flowers are created with Silk Foam colored with three purple and blue shades of Prima Oil Pastels. I used the Metal Ball Tool Set from the store to shape the petals. These Wild Orchid Crafts stamen were the perfect color for the flower centers.

The gorgeous Anemone Border Botanical Chipboard piece was heat embossed in Ranger's Pale Gold Embossing Powder, then rubbed with Finnabair's Amethyst Magic wax.

Another close-up shot of the flowers from a different angle. You can see the Artistiko Cog tucked into the cluster. The grid pattern on the background paper is stamped with the Agateria Grille Clear Stamp. I also spattered Lindy's Stamp Gang Jazzy Jivin' Purple across the background to add touches of purple.

I added a bit of extra purple below the sentiment from the Violet Love collection with a watercolor marker. Bambino Glue from the store is used to adhere Prills, microbeads, mica flakes, rhinestones, and pearls.

Mixed Media Art Brush with Silk Foam Flower for Scrap & Craft

Altered Mixed Media Art Brush by Tracey Sabella for Scrap & Craft: #mixedmedia #alteredbrush #alteredpaintbrush #altered #chipboard #Finnabair #Primamarketing #homedecor #rangerink #helmar #shabbychic #papercrafting #handcraftedflowers #foamiran #foamiranflowers #thecraftersworkshop
Welcome to my creative space!

I've been seeing so many gorgeous mixed media altered paint brushes, that I just had to create one for myself. This started with an inexpensive 3-inch brush with a wooden handle. The handcrafted flowers is my first with Silk Foam from the Scrap & Craft Store. The gorgeous chipboard pieces are also from the store. If you haven't tried one of these art brushes yet, I hope you'll be inspired to give one a try! Scroll down for close-ups and all the details

This handcrafted flower is created with Silk Foam, shaped with the Metal Ball Tool Set, and colored with Distress Oxide inks. The white Mini Stamen are also from the store. 

I don't think I'll be using Distress Oxides to color Foamiran or Silk Foam again even though I adore the colors. Since it is a more permanent ink, my hands were stained for days. :D

The Anemone Fabian Ornaments Chipboard and Artistiko Cog from the Scrap & Craft store are heat embossed with pale gold embossing powder.

The wings are created with Prima Paper Clay in the Prima Wings & Locket Mould, set aside overnight to dry, then brushed with Finnabair's Sparks paint and Wax. Finnabair's metal "Art" piece is also brushed with Sparks Paint and wax. The brush has several layers of Finnabair's Impasto Paints and Sparks Paints along with gesso then finished off with a light brushing of her gold wax.

I used Bambino Glue from the store to adhere Finnabair's Regular and Mini Art Stones around the cluster. I thinned some of the Sparks Paint to brush over the Art Stones, then a light brushing with the gold wax to highlight the texture.

 This gorgeous Misz Masz Chipboard Butterfly is brushed with Sparks Paint and the edges with gold art wax. Bambino Glue is a great way to adhere microbeads for a textured body.

The handle of the brush is stenciled with Finnabair's Light Paste. The decorative metal piece is painted and waxed like the rest of the brush and centered with a coordinating rhinestone from my stash.

"Fly" Mixed Media Card featuring Craft O'Clock for Scrap & Craft

Welcome to my creative space!

I have a new project to share today featuring wonderful products from the Scrap & Craft Store featuring the Craft O'Clock ~ Morning Dreams II paper collection which has such gorgeous colors and fabulous images that can be fussy cut to embellish your projects. I've also used chipboard, stamps, and organza trim from the store.

Most of the cards I create are made with a special person in mind, but I do like to keep a few on hand for those unexpected special occasions. With this encouraging sentiment, it could be used for a birthday or really any kind of celebration or milestone event.

Tips and Techniques

I selected delicate Prima flowers to go with the soft colors on the gorgeous background paper and fussy cut flowers, then tucked in a single blossom from the Organza Rose Trim. I just adore this versatile trim that can be used in a strip or cut apart for individual flowers.

I treasure texture, so used Bambino Glue to adhere metal objects, Prills, diecut leafy flourishes, chunky glass glitter, rhinestones, and Finnabair Microbeads and Mica Flakes, around the cluster and across the page.  Do you have a stash of found items like I do? It's so lovely to tuck in an odd found item or two into mixed media projects for a unique touch. I brushed them with Finnabair's Sparks Paint and Art Alchemy Wax to fit in.

These fabulous Scrapiniec Steampunk Flying Hearts Chipboard Wings are heat embossed in pale gold, a perfect accent to the soft teal and pinks.

The background is stenciled with crackle paste, then spritzed with Lindy's Gang Tibetan Poppy Teal and Frozen Jack Frost Starburst mist. Once dry, white ink is spattered across for soft visual texture.

I combined the Agateria Grill 3 Stamp with a flourish stamp from my stash to edge the top and bottom of the card using permanent ink. I thought this sentiment was just perfect to go with the chipboard wings in the cluster.

"Shine Brightly" Shabby Mixed Media Card Featuring Studio75 Paper for Scrap & Craft

“Shine Brightly” Shabby Mixed Media Card Featuring Studio75 Paper by Tracey Sabella for Scrap & Craft: #studio75 #scrapiniec #Finnabair #Primamarketing #49andmarket #handmadecard #mixedmedia #mixedmediacard #shabbychic #shabbychiccard #papercrafting #flowercard #chipboard #lindysgang #lindysstampgang  #wildorchidcrafts #helmar #artanthology #bluefernstudios #stampendous
Welcome to my creative space!

I just adore playing with color, and this gorgeous teal green paper from the Studio75 Berry Copse 6x6" Paper Collection is a perfect backdrop for magenta and gold accents featuring chipboard and flowers from the Scrap & Craft Store.

 Tips and Techniques

I arranged the floral cluster around this gorgeous Craft Molly Zahia chipboard frame. I wanted a few white accents to add lightness to the card, so simply heat embossed the frame in white. I've used a couple flowers from the store including the delicate ivory rose tucked below the sentiment. 

I've also used 49 and Market, Prima, and Wild Orchid Crafts flowers from my stash in the cluster with Prima pearls tucked in along with a couple Finnabair Mechanical pieces rubbed with her Amethyst Magic Antique Brilliance Wax.

Prima Paper Clay was formed in the Prima Baroque mold then painted with Finnabair's Ginger Magic Sparks Paint and rubbed with her Amethyst Wax.

I colored a white Apple Blossom with color mist and paint to coordinate. Bambino Glue was brushed around the cluster to adhere Prima Finnabair Art Stones, Mini Art Stones and seed beads for texture.

Additional texture was created by mixing Finnabair Gold Mica Powder into her 3D Matte Gel to stencil onto the background. While wet, I sprinkled with Finnabair Gold Microbeads. Since gel medium can work as an adhesive the beads are well adhered to the card.

The Scrapiniec Confetti Hearts are so versatile! I added three layers of color before scattering them around the cluster. I started with a layer of teal embossing powder, followed by teal glitter embossing powder, then one edge is brushed with Finnabair's Gold Metallique Wax. 

I also added pearls, rhinestones, and Finnabair Mica Flakes from my stash adhered with Bambino Glue.

I backed the card front with a fabulous Studio75 15x15cm Blank Card. These white cards are super heavy and hold up the weight of all my embellishments perfectly.

The background is stamped randomly with a script stamp and edged with a leafy scrolled design from Blue Fern Studios, then spattered with white drawing ink. I've also tucked in leafy white die cuts.

Masculine Industrial Mixed Media Tag for Scrap & Craft

“Embrace the Journey” DIY Industrial Steampunk Home Decor Tag by Tracey Sabella for Scrap & Craft featuring Studio75 Paper: #studio75 #scrapiniec #agateria #mixedmedia #mixedmediatag #arttag #steampunk #industrialsteampunk #chipboard #Finnabair #Primamarketing #homedecor #timholtz #rust #rustart #lindysgang #lindysstampgang #rangerink #stampendous #spellbinders #helmar #scrapbookadhesivesby3l
Welcome to my creative space!

I enjoy getting grungy with masculine designs. This tag is a graduation gift for the son of a good friend. I just adore this senior portrait taken of him on a bridge with the industrial red beams. The Tim Holtz tag board is rather large at 6 1/2" wide by 12" high so is a great home decor piece featuring the Studio75 Cherry Blossom Collection as well as chipboardstamps, and brick stencil from the Scrap & Craft Store. A complete product list can be found below.

I wanted to bring in a grungy industrial feel to go with the gorgeous bridge in the photo so the gears in the Scrapiniec Flying Hearts Set were just perfect. This is one long strip of gears that I cut to frame the corner of the photo. The chipboard was heat embossed with Stampendous Aged Taupe enamel for an old metal feel. 

Around the tag edges, I stamped with the Grille and Grille 3 stamp with grey ink.

The Small Brick Stencil with Finnabair's Light Paste is a perfect accent on the background. It's spritzed with Lindy's Black Orchid Silver and Autumn Maple Crimson Starburst spray to highlight the texture. These colors were also used to add spatter texture. The dark paper behind the photo came from the 6x6" Studio75 Cherry Blossom Paper Set and was torn to size then inked with Hickory Smoke Distress Ink to tone down the bright white edges.

The circle piece was diecut from chipboard and enameled with more of the aged taupe powder. I found a roll of back plastic mesh at a flea market that's great for masculine pieces. I cut and brushed a couple bits with art wax to tuck under the photo.

The small stars are from the Scrapiniec Confetti Stars Set. There are just a ton of little stars in this set that can be used so many different ways to go with any project. Here I brushed them with Finnabair's Rust Effect Paste so they look like rusty metal.

I have a bag of rusty washers collected by my friend's husband who knows I adore rust. I just had to use them for their son's gift. At the bottom of the bag I noticed flakes and bits of rusty goodness. I brushed Bambino Glue around the washers and sprinkled the rusty bits into the glue for texture. The washer is topped with a barn star and gear. To make it look like the washer had rusted in place, I brushed some Rust Effect Paste around the washer and spritzed with water.

More rusty goodness. A piece of chunky silver chain from my stash was brushed with more rust effect paste to color.

The tag background is from the 12x12" Studio75 Cherry Blossom Paper Set. I traced and cut the paper then used soft matte get to adhere the paper to the tag. Rolling with a brayer made sure the paper was adhered securely. Once the gel was completely dry, the edges were lightly sanded then inked. 

The vintage key was still somewhat shiny, so I brushed it with Rust Effect Paste and placed it atop another of the fab rusty washers.

This cool gear came from the Artistiko Cogs Set made from HDF board. I just adore the fabulous gear shapes in this set. It was heat embossed with metallic bronze powder with just a hint of black mixed in.

The sweet floral cluster includes Magnolia Flowers and an Ivory Mulberry Rose from the store along with a few Wild Orchid Crafts flowers from my stash. I tucked a few Prima Pearls into the empty spots.

The soft Organza Rose Trim is so lovely. Every girl loves some bling, so I added a sparkling rhinestone to the center of each blossom. 

The lovely Anemone Gaja Ornament chipboard is heat embossed with aged ivory embossing enamel, then the edges rubbed with Finnabair's Vintage Gold Wax. Don't be afraid to cut up your chippies. I snipped this one in half to extend out on each side of the cluster. The Scrapiniec Confetti Hearts include a ton of little hearts in three sizes. I heat embossed several in Raspberry and brushed with more of the gold wax.

Of course there needs to be a fluttering insect on any summery project. This Misz Masz Butterfly Chipboard Die Cut is embossed in aged ivory, then edged with raspberry and a touch of white gold wax over the body with a little rhinestone to add more bling.

The Violet Love background paper was dry brushed with white gesso, then stamped with two of the Agateria Grille stamps. I also added some spatter with Lindy's Gang Moonlit Mulberry Moon Shadow Mist and white drawing ink.

This delightful sentiment was cut from the 12 x12 Violet Love Paper Collection and edged with wisteria ink. The Anemone Fabian Chipboard Ornament is so perfect to anchor the sentiment. 

Bambino Glue is used to adhere texture elements from the Prills and Finnabair Microbeads around the flowers to the Confetti Hearts, mica shards, rhinestones, and sequins scattered around the card for texture.
