Altered clipboard with Art Anthology

Hi there !

If you are following my blog, you know that I'm moving from France to Texas, and that I didn't received my craft materials yet... On the top of that, I moved to Houston where Harvey was just in time to try to stop me from creating... Well, despite those little things, I decided to go on with my volunteering at CKC event in Houston on Friday, where I had the pleasure to meet the lovely Stayce and Lorrie who let me play with the Art Anthology goodies !

So I grabbed a plain clipboard, somme gesso and a black paint, borrow stencils, mediums, stamp and paper towel (!) from the booth and create this :


You will find more pictures and details as well as a video tutorial on the Art Anthology blog, or on my YouTube channel.

If you are in Texas, stay safe on this Sunday. For all, I hope your day will be creative.
Thank you for stopping by my blog today, and see you soon !

August Make-it Prima layout

Hello !

Texas heat did not kill me yet, even if you didn't read a lot from me recently... I'm still waiting for my scrapbook stuff to arrive from France, and had nothing to play with. As I wanted to play with the August (maybe the last ?) mood board from the Prima Marketing blog, I bought some papers, flowers and moulds to have fun... This is the result :


I had to be very creative for this one I haven't any of my tools... Fussy cutting is my go-to technique for this kind of situation ! And as you can see, I had a blast with the roses !


I brushes few strokes of the yellow metallic semi-watercolor (Prima) on the background paper (Rose Quartz collection, Prima).
Then I prepared few medallions with moulds and paper clay (Prima). Once dried, the medallions were painted with the white metallic and I added some doodles followinf the shapes of the medallions with a black pen. Crystal are the perfect touch to them to match the picture.


As I didn't have my doilie die cut, I just painted two papers doilies with metallic black and pink. I found some beautiful black lace and added it under the cluster made with the altered medallions, painted doilies, cutted roses and flowers with a touch of yellow metallic.


I found the perfect sticker for the title in a sheet of Mambi Sticks.
Here some of the products I used :



I will be tonight, Friday and Saturday at the CKC-Houston event to volunteer as teacher's assistant ( well if Harvey let me go...). If you're around I would love to meet you ! Don't forget to grab your $3 off coupon for this event at this link.

I will take pictures from the show for you, so stay tune for infos !
