Einstein Tag

Hi lovelies. We are going all monochrome today over on the Prima blog, showing you how much can be done with just two colours! 

And as you can see I had some fun with this assignment....

And here is Albert in all his glory!

I love how versatile the Relics and Artifacts are, creating Albert Einstein from a cast from the Spirit Treasures set. I created his hair from wool, and added highlights and details with a black watercolour pencil.

For the background I used the stone wall stamp from Finnabair's Dream On set and heat embossed with black powder and used a black watercolour pencil to tint the background over the embossed details.

His noble head sits upon a slate pebble which has been decorated with glass glitter using Matte Gel to adhere the glitter softened with a few flowers.

Explore Art

Hello again! Scraps and leftovers...I am back today to share a little card I created for Mixed Media Place using various paper scraps I had lying around - and we all have enough of those don't we?!
 It was pretty straight forward to put together, layering squares of card and painting with gesso. I then added Modeling Paste through a pretty flourish stencil and rubbed over gold and brown Gelatos once the paste was dry.

You can see how the Gelatos pick up the stenciling so beautifully.

I decorated my card with some altered paper leaves, mini pencil and metal embellishments.

I hope this will inspire you to play with your scraps and show how you can create wonders with a few oddments!!
