What a Wonderful World For Helmar



Hi Everyone I'm sharing my first project I created for Helmar

I started off with a canvas that I had layered plaster (like you use when you have a broken arm) roughly over it, once it dried I painted it with black gesso 

I then sprinkled a variety  of Lindy's Stamp Gang Magical's to give a colourful background, I love the way they go into all the grooves and give you several colours in the one colour

I then sprayed some muslin with the Helmar Spray Adhesive to attach it to the canvas with out it being stuck completely down I still wanted it to have movement

I used the Helmar Gemstone Glue to adhere the little diamonds into the metal cabochon - it's great because it dries clear and they look like they were always there

These Flower Sticks are from Memory Maze and I painted them with some watercolour paints I had on hand

I used my favourite glue the Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive for adhering everything to the canvas

Make sure you check out our BLOG and see what our very creative
Design Team have come up with

(it's part of her Job) she has a business OptiMystic Xzavia she's an Intuitive Healer who
also does yourChakras, massage, past life healings and lots more
you can find her on Facebook

Anyway I made this for her as she was only supposed to spend an hour with me and
ended up spending over an hour
I started with a white plastic frame and painted it with the Finnabair Patina Effect Paste Brass 
 water in all the grooves of the frame and then on some of the edges


The background I used some modelling paste
Once that was dry I used some Lindy's Tea Pot Purple Spray and some
into the grooves of the Memory Maze Wire Door stencil 




I also coloured a lot of the embellishments with the same colours so it all blended

I used some metal to break it up a bit as well

Adore for Mixed Media Supplies

Hi Everyone

How cute is this little Miss

Lucky for me Mixed Media Supplies have the perfect colour Mica Powder - Coral Reef it 
matches perfect with her outfit 



So I mixed the Coral Reef Mica Powder with some matte gel to put through the floral 
scroll stencil to give a nice vibrant pattern 


On the Adore I used the Shimmer Pearl Mica Powder it's so pretty and has so much shimmer 
to it I wish the photos could show it better


The other stencil I used texture paste and watered down the Mica Powder to make the 
pattern stand out and give the paper some colour

Hey Everyone

I thought I'd enter the Colour Blast Challenge which is using texture and a Colour Blast product 
Lucky for me I love using texture on everything I do 

I have YouTube Video and it worked perfect this time no pixelation

I was given a canvas that someone was going to throw out because it wasn't working for them so they thought I might be able to use it

It sat in my pile of canvases for awhile and I tried to remove the timber products that had been stuck to it but man were they stuck, they ended up ripping the canvas


This was actually a good thing because I decided I liked the shaped of the frame of the timber underneath, so I took all of the canvas off, took the staples out and then filled in the gaps with modelling paste

Once everything was dry I used the Crafters Workshop Tiny Dots stencil over all the edges of the frame 

Then I used a mix of Peacock, Midnight and Lush Shimmer Dusts over the top mixing them up and painting them on randomly to give different colours and deepen the green of the lush and darken the Peacock as they were a bit too bright for the photo 


I glued some cardboard to the back of the frame and then added some Bling Colour Paste to the background I was using a stencil with it but the paste dried a bit before I used the stencil so when I lifted the stencil it didn't come up clean so I fixed it all and then stamped into it


Once it was dry I used the Midnight Shimmer Dust in some water and let it go into the grooves of the stamped area

Then the fun part is the decorating I added a floral vine up the side with lots of little flowers and metal some of my favourite things to use then some seed beads for a bit of sparkle and that's it
