Paula was inspired by the flowers stamps in the Jane davenport Mixed Media set. She used a Single Face stamp and stamped the flowers to create  her hair, she coloured the image with Distress Oxide ink and added some doodling. Paula also used some letters of the Tim Holtz Idea-ology Type Lower Foam Stamps to create her own background.

Andrea doodled a scallop border and penciled in some edging details.  She used Dina Wakley’s Funky Silhouette and Giant Funky Silhouette stencils, and Joggles’ I Just Love You stamp.

Anna-Karin doodled flowers and butterflies in her Dina Wakley Media Journal and watercolored them with Scribble Sticks. The page was embellished with some Tim Holtz stamps.

Barbara was inspired by Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Cocktails set,  using to color them Distress crayons in summer shades. She added a little bit of doodling in her backgrounds create with Ranger Distress paints and Uniball Pen Signo Gel white. She added a touch of glitter with various Ranger Stickles. 

Cheiron used stamps to get her doodled flower background look. She used the Hello Sunshine stamp set from Altenew and did some loose watercoloring with her Mijello Mission Gold watercolors. She added plenty of her own watercolor dots and dashes doodles to fill in the background and completed her card with some Ebony Black Nuvo Crystal drops.

Emma added plenty of doodling to her vintage style layout. She used a Tim Holtz Found Relative photo and doodled a border and wording around the image using a white Dylusions Paint Pen before adding even more doodling to her background. She completed the layout with rusty Gadget Gears and Star Adornments.

Kath used Tim Holtz/Sizzix Tattered Florals Bigz Die and Fun Foam to make her own foam stamps, stamped with Distress Paints to create the flowers in her Dylusions Black Creative Journal and added lots of doodling with Ranger Fude Ball Black, Sharpie Black Fine Point and Sakura Bold White Jelly Roll pens.

Macarena had so much fun with her debuting doodling that she made two cards. The main panel on both is Penny Black Lively die, there is a lot of Distress Oxides and the thin layer of Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint which gives fabulous effect.

Maura painted big blooms with Prima Tropicals and Pastel Dreams Watercolor, that she doodled in her Dina Wakley Media Journal and added some quotes with the Simon Says Stamp One With Nature stamp set.

Meihsia was inspired by Simon Wild’s artworks and doodled on her art journal using Prismacolor Colerase Colored Pencils and colored the page using Daniel Smith Extra Fine Watercolors.

Sandra combined doodling on her own as well as using doodle-like Paper Artsy stamps like EM17 and the JM16. On the texture created by the Tiles stencil with Texture Paste, she doodled first with a White Gell Roll pen, but went over it with a Black Artist Pitt pen.

Mythology Winner and Spotlights Post

designer-spotlight

We have 5 artists in the Designer Spotlight for the Mythology/Story Challenge!

#1 Ginny and the sheep – Emma says: Simona has created such a wonderful interpretation of the challenge theme and I adore this piece of work! The inked background is simply stunning and I love how she’s told the story of the Flight of Icarus through her project and how she’s added those beautiful wings to a paper doll, it’s perfect!

#6 Unikaty Beaty – Macarena says: This is such a great panel with lots of work. The texture on the background is great and the color combo using browns and teal looks amazing. I totally love the main panel with distressed chipboards and the steel color all around. The crown rocks! And I love the tatoo, of course! Great job!

#17 Kate’s Scrap Yard – Meihsia says: I really love the fantastic art journal pages Kate created with so many beautiful embellishments and details. The colors and texture on this project are stunning. Great interpretation on this challenge theme!

#22 Gus the Ghost’s House- based on a Book – Andrea says: I love the connection between this delightful 3D house and the book that it was based on.  The details of the house are incredible from the beautiful blue shingles to the wonderfully weathered siding.  This is definitely a project I would love to step into!

#89 Joseline – Anna-Karin says: Joseline’s card is inspired by the Emperor’s New Clothes, and I think it is such a clever idea to use an empty dress form shape to illustrate this story. There are lots of beautiful sewing related details and I also really like the sentiment of the card.
