Fun Times for Lindys Stamp Gang

Hey there!
I am beyond thrilled to be an Ambassador for Lindys Stamp Gang this year and have the most incredible year coming up with a heap of classes all around Australia and New Zealand … plus another teaching Cruise through the South Pacific in November AND starting my own business …
I LOVE my busy life!
So today I want to share with you some more in depth details of my Layout created
for the January Color Challenge!
This Color palette is just gorgeous and was the perfect fit for this image taken a while ago inNew Zealand of myself, the delightful Paula Cheney & the AE team. So much fun in one pic!
So here are a few easy steps to recreate this Scrapbook Page!
I started with Modeling Paste through a Stencil on flat white cardstock
I then tipped a little I’m Late I’m Late Slate, Azure Seas Asters & Tainted Love Teal into
my palette for easy access
Using a round brush, I started with the lightest color first – I’m Late I’m Late Slate,  and ‘puddled’ the color on my page over the stencilling. Once dry, I the used the Azure Sea Asters and repeated the process, pushing the color up against and on top of the Slate and then dried that layer.
I then added Tainted Love Teal – as this is the darkest color, I started off with a small amount but then added more and more!
It admittedly looks like a blotchy mess but keep in mind that its just the background!
I then added some splatters of each colour and popped it aside to dry.
I love using die cuts on my pages and cards as they make easy embellishments and I can customise them to suit! These were cut out of 300gsm watercolor paper and then the leaves were colored with Cowabunga Copper & Fuzzy Navel Peach and the circles in Tainted Love Teal.
My title is double heat embossed using Morning Glory Azure & Twilight Blue Slate.
And my little chipboard crosses are using Cowabunga Copper.
So it’s not difficult to get a finish that looks gorgeous! Here are a few close ups of the page.

So give it a go – it’s easier than you think!

Lindys United Love Canvas

Hey there!
Today I am sharing a special project I created especially for the AALL & Create International Tournament from earlier this year.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe brief was to create a project representing Unity and I created a beautiful canvas showcasing an image of my husband and I together.  We are the best of friends, united as a family and have an incredible love for each other.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
I started by adding some tissue paper to the canvas with Gel Medium and then used Light Texture Paste through a stencil. I like the way the Light Paste is light & fluffy like Butter Cream Icing!
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Once dry, I added three colours of Lindys Stamp Gang Magicals – Tibetan Poppy TealHi-Maintenance Magenta & Witches Potion Purple.
I puddled them on with a #12 round brush and diluted them slightly with a light mist of water to get them to run through the stencil pattern.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
I chose these three colours as they go beautifully together and I think they represent a calm and peaceful feel.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Next I cut some white card with my dies and coloured them using the same colours, (though – I chose not to use the pink centre cut).
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I stamped a few feathers designed by my gorgeous friend Fiona Paltridge. I used black Archival ink on watercolour paper.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
I added the Lindys Magicals in a wash over the stamped feathers.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
I finished off by cutting out the feathers and layering them on the canvas, hanging down from the photo and die cuts & circles.
