This week we’re welcoming back the lovely Cassie Lynch aka mk_knits into the Designer Spotlight. If you haven’t visited her blog before then you are in for a real treat!

Cassie used Lemon Zest, Island Parrot, Blue Lagoon, and Squeezed Orange Dylusion Paint to make her background and to color the Fancy Florals by Dyan Reaveley. She added buttons from her stash for the center of the flowers.

Andrea made a mini book out of a Dylusions Black Journaling Tag folded in half. She colored the front with several of her favorite Dylusions paints such as Balmy Night, Rose Quartz, and Strawberry Daquiri. She used Whimsy Stamps’ Boho Alphabet for the “Try” sentiment.

Barbara created a trio of tags mixing Ground Coffee and Slate Grey Dylusions Inks Spray with various Ranger Ink Distress Spray. She chooses three stamps sets by Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous: The Professor CMS373, Tim Holtz Clear Stamps and Stencil Observations and The Inspector CMS465. She also added Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Layering Stencil Brush Arch, Element Stencils Everyday Art, Mini Stencil Set 53

Cheiron used Dylusions Rose Quartz Ink Spray, Gesso and Distress Paints in Cracked Pistachio and Wild Honey to create the background on her mixed media card. She stenciled through the Mini Brush Mark stencil, added some stamping with Distress Archival Ink and lots of splatter. She finished her card with some leaves from the Media Marks 1 set and added a sentiment from the Note Quotes stamps.

Kath used Tim Holtz/Ranger “Back From The Vault” Distress Paints to colour one of the preprinted pages in her Dylusions Creative Dyary. She added stencilling using Dylusions Dyalog Border It Stencil, a sentiment quote from Borders and Quotes Colouring Sheets and doodled circles using Dylusions Paint Pens.

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media Mother’s Day tag using Simon Says Clear Stamps SWOOPY FLOWERS for the image on the background, colored it with Ranger DYLUSIONS INK SPRAY SET OF 6 Dyan Reaveley and added a sentiment using Simon Says Stamp Simple Mother’s Day Wafer Dies

Zoey used Ranger Dylusions Vibrant Turquoise paint through Tim Holtz Brush Hex stencil. She then used Tim Holtz Idea-ology Collage Tiles and Tim Holtz Idea-ology Photomatic to decorate the tag.

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!
