Pop and Colour 3- The Mixed Media Touch!!

Hi All! I am super excited to share that awhile back I was chosen to be a part of an amazingly talented group of women- creating a workshop filled to the brim with Mixed Media techniques. I had so much fun creating this video tutorial- how I created this watercolor piece, and today I finally get to reveal my project to you.



Whats great about this is that once you have paid for the workshop you have access to all the tutorials for two years from the start date (Aug 2014). That way you can take your time, and really dive in and dig deep with mixed media! 

All you need to know about gaining access to this workshop can be found here

I hope you will take some time to stop over there and take a peek at all this workshop has to offer!

Until Next Time,

Adrienne

Blue Fern September Video

Hello Everyone! 
\
I have a new video up to share with you today! This one is featuring the beautiful new Montage Paper Collection and an array of new Blue Fern Chippies! Very exciting new products! I really enjoyed working with Montage Papers as they are so shabby and beautiful. I paired it with a - photo of my daughter as a newborn- there are so many variations and themes you can use it for! 

For my Blue Fern Chipboard I went for a layered look, trying something a bit different- layering embossing techniques and watercolor over top. The result was very unique!




Blue Fern Supplies: 

Montage Collection: Invitation
652765 Adore, Love, Cherish
651669 Ornate Frame
651263 Mini Flourishes

Here is my video using this wonderful new products! Enjoy!

Finnabair Altered Metal Frames!

Hello All! 

Have you seen the gorgeous new products Finnabair has created for Prima Marketing? She has SO many awesome things coming out now from Art Mediums (squeal!!!!!) to glitters. She also has these AMAZING Altered Metal Frames. Here is the clock I altered with Color Bloom and lots of items from the Forever Green Collection.



What I really love about this clock is it is SO vintage and rustic looking, like a hidden treasure you scored at the flea market. The metal can be left as-is, or the Color Bloom can be added for some extra color. The art mediums take to the metal nicely. :)


961343 Altered Metal Frame Clock
846817 Garden Talk
846787 Botanical Garden
846800 Orchard Fresh
573850 Lime Wedge
573942 Glistening Waves
576042 Wood Icons
890766 Shabby Chic Treasures Mushrooms
572839 Metal Die- Leaves
576974 Wire Thread - Sprout
577766 Rodanthe- Seashell

Secondly, I also have the Bird House, that I have used as a prop this time to display my canvas featuring the new Cork Stickers by Prima. I can easily use the Bird House as a display for home decor like I did here, but this will probably be jazzed up some more in the near future :) But, you get the idea of how beautiful this frame is as well and how many options it has

 And I totally loving these cork stickers that Prima came up with. As you can see here, you can layer them and tuck them in here and there to add a nice bit of dimension to your piece.

573775 Sunshine

Thanks for taking the time to stop in!
