Love This Life Altered Tag ScraPerfect DT

Good morning friends, Kim here with my next DT project for ScraPerfect. This time I have created a mixed media altered tag for a challenge on my fellow ScraPerfect team mate Kim Lippincott's YouTube Channel.
You can find a link to Kim's challenge here

I used my favorite glue (of course!) to create this tag for Kim. The Best Glue Ever makes quick work of this type of project, it is one of the best glue's for paper crafting!

I used some chipboard for the base, added my scrapbooking paper over that and then adhered my adorable little bunny for an image on top. 

I also added some laces, wooden embellishments and some hand dyed doilies and seam binding to bring it all together.

I hope you have enjoyed my project today, don't forget to check out Kim's challenge on YouTube!

Follow Your Heart Mixed Media Bird House Featuring DecoArt

Good morning friends, Kim here today with a fun project for Deco Art! I purchased this wooden bird house at my local dollar store and I really loved the scroll work on the front of it. I knew immediately that it would be altered with lots of amazing products from DecoArt!

I started off with the DecoArt Media gesso and gave the house an all over coat with that. Next, I used the Americana Decor Chalky Finish in Lace over the top of the gesso. 

Now it was time to get out some my my napkins I had in my stash. The DecoArt Decoupage Matte Medium is perfect for this and really worked a treat for sticking down the napkins.  The Matte Medium gives a lovely finish and I don't have to worry about my napkin coming up off the birdhouse either.

Once the napkin was dry, I got out the Americiana Decor Crackle medium. I wanted the roof and the front of the bird house to have an old and weathered look.  I applied a good even coat and left it to dry naturally over night.

Now it is time for the magic to happen! Once the crackle was dry, I used my Americana Paint in Blush Pink to go over the crackle.

Remember to only go in one direction and not to paint over the crackle medium several times. One good swipe with the brush will give you great cracks like you see in the photo above. I love how the roof came out!!

Now it was time to do the front of the bird house. For this I used Americana Paint in Antique White.
The same rules apply as they did for the roof. Don't over paint with your brush, go in one direction and let the crackle work its magic.

I also gave the edges of the roof and the front of the bird house a light sanding when they were dry to add to the distressed look.

I added some wooden embellishments and flowers to the birdhouse for a finishing touch.

A little embossed wooden crown tops off the birdhouse!

I hope you will check out and get yourself some of these amazing products!
Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you have found some inspiration here!

Mini Art Journal White Rose Crafts DT

Good morning Rosies! Kim here with my next DT project for White Rose Crafts.
This time I have created a fun mini art journal!
You are going to be seeing me use this little journal over the coming weeks as I create some fun art pages in it using more White Rose Crafts items, I can't wait!

The first step to making this journal is to gather up all my little bits and pieces I have left over from all my other White Rose Crafts projects.  I keep all my scraps in a bin when I am finished a project, and this is such a great way to use them up.

Once I have decided what I am going to use, I stack them on top of each other, remembering not to use too many as I wanted to sew down the centre of the papers on my sewing machine so they would be attached to each other.

Once I sewed all the papers together, I used a couple of pieces of Lemoncraft Yesterday Ephemera for my cover of my little journal. I used black thread on my journal to make it stand out and used a zig zag pattern as well for some fun.
I stacked two of the ephemera pieces together and added some sparkly blue tulle in between the cards for texture.

Once that was done, it was time to work on the cover for the journal. I used some fun material from my stash, and ended up making the journal 5 x 7 inches. This is a great size for a small journal as it can fit inside a purse and you can take it anywhere with you.

Once the cover was complete, I sewed in the paper stack by just doing another stitch down the middle of the paper and cover. Don't forget to back stitch so you have a good locking stitch and your journal won't come apart.

I attached some more of the fabric to the side of the journal for a closure.

Here you can see the inside of the completed journal.

I hope you like my little journal. I will be working on this journal over the next month and creating some art inside it to share with you all! So stay tuned for some fun White Rose Craft art journal pages from me. I have a complete list of the paper scraps I used for my journal below for you. 
I hope you will make one of these fun little journals for yourself with all your White Rose Crafts goodies and scraps!
Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you have found some inspiration here.

Where Will Your Dreams Take You? White Rose Crafts DT Sketch Challenge

 Good morning Rosies! Kim here today with my next DT project for White Rose Crafts.
We are starting off the New Year with a sketch challenge! 

I am using the gorgeous Graphic 45 Princess collection for my card today. I started off with one of the Neenah A2 parchment card and envelopes from the WRC store.
I then layered on lots of pieces from the collection, in the style of the sketch challenge, and edged all the papers with the Distress Ink Vintage Photo from WRC.

I added a fun little wooden crown from my stash and used some of the Nuvo Drops in White Blizzard to give the crown some sparkle!

I hope you will give this fun sketch a try, and check out all the great items in the White Rose Crafts Store!
Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you have found some inspiration here!

Mixed Media Canvas "One of a Kind" ScraPerfect Dt

Good Morning friends, Kim F., here with my next DT Project for ScraPerfect. This time I have created a mixed media canvas, with lots of layering and some distressed paper I created in the background of the canvas. 

 I used the Best Glue Ever for all of my project. It works so well for paper, chipboard and fabric too

Don't forget to put your No Clog Writing Cap on your glue bottle, it makes the glue flow so well, and you only use a small amount for your projects!

 Here are a few close ups of my project!

Thank you so much for stopping by today, I hope you have found some inspiration here!
