Tribal Canvas

Hello my Scrappy friends,
This is a special project because it is a mixed Media style!  In my normal crafting I usually scrapbook along with many other things but mixed media is usually reserved for my canvas paintings.
I used the chipboard pieces “Dream Catcher corner & Tribal Feather skinny strand” from the large variety at Southern Ridge trading company!
I collected many off the wall items like buttons, small bows, crocheted doilies and assorted torn papers pieces.  I added all these in a style that flowed well with a heavy adhesive.  I then covered the entire canvas with white Gesso and let it dry.  I took the chipboard pieces and covered them in white paint and let them dry.  Keep in mind this was not a quick project with all the drying time.
After everything was dried, I inked and swiped with several different supplies.  The chipboard pieces had several colors of distress inks to blend into the finished project.
I added beading and feathers to incorporate the chipboard pieces to pull it all together.
The end result is a multi mixed media piece with a tribal feel!  To see more information, see Southern Ridge Trading Company at #southernridgetradingcompany and https://cestmagnifiquekits.blogspot.com

Hello all my crafty friends,
Here is a project I made with the chipboard pieces “starfish, coral and the frame from the butterflies” from Southern Ridge Trading Company.  You can get more information at #southernridgetradingcompany
I took this picture of some sponges while at a boardwalk store on the beach.  Something about this photo just got to me.  I thought these chipboard pieces went well with the picture.

I first painted all the Chipboard pieces and then used several different colors of embossing powders to give them a natural look.

I cut my photo and matted it with like papers.  I used a beach scene main paper to pull it all together, 

I had this quote that just worked so well with all the elements of the page so I printed it on cream card stock and used the embossed “frame from the butterfly chipboard”.  I think it all came together well and might just put it in a shadow box frame!

I hope you enjoy!

Beautiful Moments

Hello all my crafty friends,
Here is a project I made with the chipboard pieces “Moments and a butterfly” from Southern Ridge Trading Company.  You can get more information at #southernridgetradingcompany or https://cestmagnifiquekits.blogspot.com
We took this picture while on a cruise.  I thought these chipboard pieces went well with the picture and the paper I had.
I first rubbed the Chipboard pieces this color from Faber Castell and then used clear embossing powder to give them a mottled shinny look.
I cut my photo and matted them with like papers.  I used flowers to accent main paper to pull it all together.  I also bent the butterfly wings up slightly to give it more of a 3D look. 
I love this picture of “US” and and with the word Beautiful printed on the paper I like how it turned out!
I hope you enjoy!

Memories

Hello all my crafty friends,
Here is a project I made with the chipboard pieces “Memories” and a lovely scroll from Southern Ridge Trading Company.  You can get more information at #southernridgetradingcompany or https://cestmagnifiquekits.blogspot.com
I had a several beautiful picture’s of my Nephews’ wedding and I thought this one showcased the chipboard items well!
I first inked the Chipboard pieces and then embossed them with clear embossing powder.
I cut my photos and matted them with like papers.  I added crystal glaze to several key areas on the paper, added a few flowers and some scalloped ribbon to tie it all together.
I think it all came together well and the focus is on the “Memories” of the day with this new family!
I hope you enjoy!

Jake

Hello all my crafty friends,
Here is a project I made with the chipboard pieces “wonderful, sweet, loveable, angel, charming, incredible and amazing” from Southern Ridge Trading Company.  You can get more information at #southernridgetradingcompany or https://cestmagnifiquekits.blogspot.com

I found this old picture of my first doggie named Jake.  He went to doggy heaven in 2013 after 14 years!  We loved him so.  I thought these words described him so well!  After all look how cute he was even though I made him wear bunny ears.
I first painted all the Chipboard words and then gave them a second coat with a final coat of matt clear.
I cut my photo and matted them with like papers.  I used a black and white main paper but then used watercolors to bring out the highlights of the pinks and green of the leaves.
I think it all came together well and showed how much he was loved!
I hope you enjoy!

Believe in yourself

Hello my Scrappy friends,
This is a special page because of the picture!  In my other life as a nurse I took care of patients and this person is very special to me!  He still loves to see me visit and give him a big hug.  You can get more information at #southernridgetradingcompany or https://cestmagnifiquekits.blogspot.com

I used the chipboard pieces  “ believe”  & “in yourself” and it is special as he is a very special person to me!
I cut out the ivy leaves and berries from the circuit, matted the pic from some Christmas papers.  I inked all edges.  I inked the chipboard pieces with green ink and then embossed with clear embossing powder.
The end result is a festive page with an uplifting feel!  To see more information see Southern Ridge Trading Company at #southernridgetradingcompany
Happy New Year!
