Sonia made a 3 dimensional garden shed with 2 adorable hedgehogs from Penny Black’s Critters in Love water-colored with Zig Clean Color Brush Pens and used Prima Crackle Paste with die cuts made from Tim Holtz Window die to create a dimensional window for the garden shed which also has a hidden space to store away a mini album.
Anna-Karin made an art journal page inspired by memories of walking across fields with her grandmother, where cows where grazing. The stars of the page are the lovely On The Farm animal stamps by Tim Holtz. The base is one of the canvas pages in Dina Wakley’s Media Journal.
Barbara take her inspiration from the sea creatures! She used Tim Holtz ‘s Sea Life Set and Tim Holtz Sizzix Pipeline Bigz Die to create a framed canvas with rusty look made with Prima Marketing Rust Effect Paste and Prima Marketing Patina Effect Paste.
Cathie used the Tim Holtz Mini Bouquet and Penny Black Winged Beauty stamp sets to create her cute mixed media framed panel. The frame was created using the Tim Holtz Stitched Rectangles, Prima Arts Stones and Patina Paste Effects.
Emma was inspired by Tim Holtz’s Bee stamp and the Creativity Takes Courage Quote Chip to create a canvas panel full of busy bees buzzing around the Honeycomb die cut hive which is dripping with honey and nectar!
Macarena made an adorable card with a troop of cats on a night scene. She made them with Impression Obsession Cat Set die and the Simon Says Stamp Cardstock Slate Gray and the city with houses was made with Sizzix Snowglobe die. She used a lot of Distress Oxide Inks to color the background and the buildings.
