This week we are welcoming back the lovely Nikki Acton, aka Addicted To Art, into the Designer Spotlight. If you haven’t visited her blog before then you are in for a real treat!

Nikki used Dina Wakley Media Acrylic Paints and a Scribbly Birds Stamp Set to create her mixed media cards. She also used texture paste and Bubble and Splotches layering stencils by Tim Holtz.

Anna-Karin made an art journal page in Dina Wakley’s White Journal featuring two sweet birds. The birds and sentiment come from Dina’s Scribbly Birds set.

Barbara created two motivation tags using Dina Wakley Ranger Collage Words, Dina Wakley Ranger Botanicals Chipboard Shapes, Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Layering Stencil Strings, Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Glitch 2 and, Dina Wakley Ranger Marine Media Gloss Spray.

Cheiron created a tag to add to her journal using Dina Wakley Collage Collective 2 as the base of her tag. She added bits of paper from her stash and layered some stamps from the Stampers Anonymous Collaged Girls and Be Willing stamp sets.

Emma used Dina Wakley’s Media Journal, Clear Gesso and White Gesso to create a vintage style layout inspired by her grandmother. She combined Dina’s products with Tim Holtz’s Botanical Collage Paper to create the floral background and added a Found Relative photo as the focal point.

Kath decorated a Dina Wakley 5″ x 7″ Canvas Art Panel with a Summer Vibes theme using Dina Wakley Media Acrylic paints, Curly Frond Media Mask/Stencil, Faces and Just Words Collage Papers and added flowers die-cut using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Funky Floral Large Thinlits.

Macarena went soft and delicate using Dina Wakley Curly Frond stencil. She gave the leaf texture with Nuvo Embellishment Mousses. For the background she used Pumice Stone and Old Paper Oxide Sprays.

Maura was inspired by fashion to create a mixed media tag using Dina Wakley’s Persona Chipboard Shapes, her Textures Cling stamp set, Dina Wakley Ranger Gloss Sprays like Lime, and Dina’s acrylic paints such as Tangerine.

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media wall decor using Prima Marketing Venetian Shutters Memory Hardware, colored it with Dina Wakley Ranger Turquoise Media Acrylic Paint and Fuchsia color, and decorated it with Prima Flowers and Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Sentiment Label Stickers.

Sandra went for the most vibrant colors ever on her mixed media card, she loves the combo of Gloss Spray Lemon and Magenta, and had to use the Collaged Girls Stamp set

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!
