Bio/blurb:
Artist, Poet, Fruitarian…………. Lizzy Love is a perfect combination of sweet and sour that glitters up the grunge! Easily lose yourself in her artistic realm of sometimes spooky but always delightfully cute, big-eyed waifs and their animal friends. Lizzy’s whimsical, one of a kind dream world is easily recognizable by her signature style of creepy yet cute, all the way from the haunting darkness to the rainbowtastic, her original creations are lovingly sprinkled with a heartbreaking sweetness. Though she is completely enthralled by her Twinkling watercolors right now, Lizzy employs many different mediums when she creates, from drawing to painting, sewing and cutting, the end result always being the same; A gothic fantasy land painted in soft pastels and neon colors; filled with big-eyed beauties, creepy little cuties and quirky monsters of all shapes and sizes. Lizzy Love’s artwork includes original paintings both acrylic and watercolour, giclee fine art prints, art dolls, digital and rubber stamps of her characters, hand-painted merchandise such as bags, T-shirts and more….. limited only by her imagination the possibilities are endless. http://www.oddballartco.com/

Gift Box and Journal Spread on Black

Hello everyone,We are excited to be back with our second post for Rinea:-)!

Today we’ve used the Love and Mettalics pack and created a mixed media journal page and a gift box! With Valentine’s soon approaching, we decided to make a gift box, as the foiled papers are perfect for them.

Here’s a look at the gift box:

 

 

 

 

We used the Papericious ready die cut box and decorated it with Rinea Papers. We first cut for our sides and the top. Then, we ran the paper for the sides, through an embossing folder, to add some interest. We then adhered them to the base of the box. We finally die-cut some swirls with a contrasting paper and stuck them on the sides and the top to complete it.  Doesn’t it make a perfect gift for your loved ones!?

Next, let’s have a look at our Journal Spread.

 

 

 

 

 

These papers were so pretty and vibrant that we decided to create a spread in our Black Book! For this spread, we’ve used two stencils and add some Art Alchemy paint through them for the background! We then used multiple Lindy’s Sprays and added splatter randomly. Next, we punched circles from various colours of the foiled paper. We used two sizes so we could punch within the bigger circle as well giving us rings. We also die cut a few elements and layered all of these on our prepped background! We completed it with a few word stickers!

 

 

Non-Verbal Spells

Today we’ve created a set of two tags. We’ve used an acrylic sheet as our base, with 7 Dots Studio Hazy Days Collection. We’ve used Art Alchemy Paints and waxes, Art Extravagance Glitters and Finnabair Mediums. We’ve used Lindy’s Sprays- Tweedle Dee Denim, Hydrangea Blue, Sidewalk Chalk, Gossamer Gold, Bayou Boogie Gold.

We came across the Magic School Joint Venture and saw the deadline for Stage1 was extended. So we decided to play along and take part. For the transparent material- we’ve used an acrylic sheet, Art Melange pebbles and tiny glass bottles to hold our magic potion.

Crafts Dreamy Challenge Blog

Hello everyone,

We thrilled to announce that we are a part of a new DT- Crafts Dreamy. This is a new challenge blog which a dear friend Zowie Dixon has started. We are so proud of her to have started this and thank you Zowie for having us on your team!

Cratfs dreamy

Onto Zowie- to tell you all a little about this:

Welcome to Crafts Dreamy, a challenge blog. I am Zowie Dixon from the United Kingdom, a mother of three beautiful children who never fail to inspire me. I am a passionate crafter and have been crafting for 8 years.

Since ages now, I have been wanting to start a challenge blog as I love crafting and believe that art is for everyone, and is a great way to express oneself. So finally today, I have taken to my dream and have decided to start this new adventure! 

Personally, I love Vintage and Shabby Chic style of crafting and this reflects a lot in my work. I also love mixed media and collage art.  I have been a self-taught artist/crafter without any formal training and crafting does bring me a lot of joy.

The intention of Crafts Dreamy is to let you all play, craft and have fun. Every month we will bring to you a new mood-board with some fabulous inspirations from our Design Team members to get your creative juices flowing. This would be an ‘Anything Goes’ Blog and so we really look forward to seeing all your unique creations based on the boards.

Starting 15th of every month we will have a new mood-board to play with.

So watch out and do come back on the 15th of January for the very first challenge!

Looking forward to your creations and participation!

Here’s a look at the design team members:-)

Tropical Paradise

Today we are super thrilled to have been giving an opportunity to guest design for Lindy’s Stamp Gang. Ever since we stepped into the world of Mixed Media, we got hooked onto Lindy’s Sprays. We knew no other brand then, and are obsessed with them. Over years, we’ve grown our collections of sprays,  magical and embossing powders and creating with them is fun!

Today we decided to alter a cycle frame and create a Tropical Paradise Scene! We wanted to create a tropical scene and be lost in the magic of nature! We’ve done it in the mixed media style, and have a video showing the entire process:)! So sit back, relax and enjoy creating with us!
