Journey of Life

Today I have altered a tin and created this “Journey of Life” treasure box. I have used a whole lot of mixed media products on this one. I have shown the life of a caterpillar to become a butterfly and will use this as a memory keepsake treasure box.

I have a video tutorial and we have fun, YouTube Hop (with 22 sponsors and 24 prizes), as well. Hop on over:)!

Here’s a look at it:

Perfect moment

Today we’re back with a mixed media style layout. On this one, we’ve kept it clean and simple. We’ve used Lindy’s Shakers- Oktoberfest Orange and Bavarian Blue, and Magical- Mango Mania on the background. We’ve used Cuts2Luv badge, doily, 49 & Market flowers, Kaisercraft collectables, fabric, and Papericious sequence for the layering along with a photo.

Birthday Layout

Sunila here from Dots to Lines, with a birthday layout for Aditi. I’ve used her favourite colours and created this layout. I’ve used Lindy’s Sprays- Hottie Patottie Hot Pink, Tilt a Wheel Teal, Shaker- Bavarian Blue and Embossing Powders- Bavarian Blue, Razzleberry Plum and Twilight Blue Slate. I have used the Altenew Reflections kit along with the stamps- Vintage Flowers and Peony Boquet, inks- Green Fields, Glacier Caves and Red Cosmos. For the texture on the background, I have applied Liquitex Glass Beads texture through AB Studio Stencil ID 23. I have used Finnabair’s Waxes- Rose Gold and Vintage Old to highlight the texture. I have completed it with Art Extravagance Glitter.
