Paula made a card using a Tim Holtz ‘Fanciful Flight’Die. It was designed to create a butterfly, but in this case the wings became a flower, such a great way to stretch your supplies! For the colouring of the petals she used an Ecoline Watercolor Set and Dylusions Bubblegum Pink Ink Spray. For the background she used Paper Artsy Sunset Beach and Slime Infusions and Walnut Stain Distress Oxide Ink.

Andrea made a handful of scrap tag notebooks with a subtle flower on each.  The flowers she used are from Tim Holtz’s Wildflowers die.  She also incorporated lots of circles using Reverse Confetti’s Swirlie die, Simon Says Stamp’s Circle Loops die and Seth Apter’s Coffee Ring die.

Anna-Karin made a tag covered in colorful flowers. The flowers were die cut from left over stamped, inked and watercolored papers using Tim Holtz’s Sizzix Funky Floral 1 and Funky Floral 2 die sets.

Barbara used  three versions  of the same floral design to create her weekly project. She used Tim Holtz Sizzix Die Tiny HousesTim Holtz  Stampers Anonymous  Vines and RosesTim Holtz Mini Stencil Set 25 , Tim Holtz Sizzix Mixed Media 5 and a lot of Distress Oxides to color her little houses.

Cheiron used Tim Holtz’s Funky Floral 1 and Funky Floral 2 dies to create this fun, layered thank you card. She created the bold sentiment to layer over the top with the Shadow Script 2 dies with a touch of gold from the Metallic Kraft Stock Paper Pad.

Emma was inspired by a piece of her Grandma’s embroidery to create two cards that are covered in dimensional flowers. She used Tim Holtz’s Funky Florals 3 die to create her blooms which were layered over a Distress Oxide Ink background, complete with an Ornate Trim stamped border.

Kath decorated an Ideaology Mini Clipboard with Tim Holtz Memoranda Paper, Worn Wallpaper and lots of Tim Holtz/Sizzix Funky Floral 3 Thinlits inspired by an old vintage postcard of a 1950’s girl posing in an English Country Garden

Lols made a card using a Darkroom Door Fresh Buds Cling Stamp. She used Seedless Preserves and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Inks and various Ink Sprays for the background and added interest and texture using Stitches and Burlap Layering Stencils.

Macarena’s Art Journal pages have bloomed with a sunny Sizzix Tattered Florals on the neutral background built with TCW Modeling Paste and TCW Small Specimens stencil with some touches of gold and Distress Ground Espresso Stain.

Maura was influenced by the Flower Power of the Sixties when she painted her canvas tote, using the Paper Artsy Tracy Scott Eclectica3 flower stencil, the Simon Says Stamp Irregular Dots stencil, and bright acrylic paints from Dina Wakley like Tangerine and Lime.

 

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Prima Marketing Rose Flowers and decorated it with Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Quote Token.

Sandra went botanical with this card, she used the Botanical Collage paper and colored it in with different colors of Infusions. She also used the Flickering Butterflies die set from the new Fluttering By Simon Says Stamp release

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.

 

So now it’s YOUR turn to get out your inks, paints and all things arty and start creating! We are looking forward to seeing what you make!
