Mixed media Tags Lavender + Gold

Hello Everyone

I hope you are having fun with the numerous inspirational posts from the talented DT team of Dress My Craft. Before we bid adieu to this month , I am back again with my post on how you can make use of the Floral Exotica/ Floral Oriental paper from Dress my Craft. My project features mixed media tags that did not require any pattern paper as the just the Floral exotica was doing all the wonders for me ! It was really easy to use them as a base for literally using any sort of mixed media mediums. Let me show you how they turned out to be

On my recent visit to the Lavender festival in Washington , I instantly knew that what I wanted to do with this month's theme :-) My tags are all lavender inspired but I used a dash of gold in both of the tags. Here is a closer look

The recipe for this tag is quiet simple, I have distressed the edges, applied texture paste with stencils and added lindy's spray. After arranging my picture I have embellished using real lavenders, some leaves that are stamped and heat embossed. And final touches with Finnabair Art ingredients golden glass glitter.

For this tag I started with a plain sheet of Floral Exotica and then added some texture paste to build a circular wall. I then heavily misted it with Lindy's sprays and attached my picture in the center with a double sided foam tape. I have used some flowers and a resin angel to add embellishments to my project. And a final touch of gold with Gilding flakes, Dress my craft sequins and Dress My craft Sparkling dust.

Have you already seen the new launches by Dress my craft that includes a beautiful Hydrangea paper pad and a lot of drool-worthy accessories. Visit the website to look into their vast range of products.

Let's Go To Hydrangea Lawns !!


This is Anita this side and How is everyone feeling today??? So is the sky blue or grey in your area!!!
Well !!!! It's surely blue for me!!!!!

Not confusing you !!!! I am talking about the awesome blue Hydrangea Lawns papers from Dress My Craft. You actually have to touch and see this paper to know about the beauty of this paper.
HYDRANGEA LAWNS----that's the name and it's so aptly suited .. you almost feel like as if you are sitting a  garden full of hydrangea flowers.

See the paper here.

As you can , this paper pad is 12/12 in size, acid free, lignin free and has 24 sheets of two designs each.The paper pad has been so designed that it has designs apt for making, cards, tags, envelopes, scrapbook layouts and also decoupage.
 After seeing this paper. I dug out the Hydrangea stamp from my stash that I had forgotten about.

So here are my projects.

This is a shabby chic card. To make this card I cut three papers from the Hydrangea Lawns paper pad and distressed the edges with Peeled Paint and Stormy Sky Distress in. I spritzed it water and then adhered them as shown.
The card is finished by adding a victorian lady image in a die cut. Finally I arranged some flowers and a sentiment. The papers have a smooth surface and can be distressed easily.

This is my second card. To make this card.....Cut a design using a sizzix die on the card panel. Tear two strips of paper from Hydrangea Lawns paper pad and distress  with Peeled Paint and Stormy Sky distress ink. Layer them as shown. Add lace as required.Stamp a colour a hydrangea image. Layer with the sentiment panel in the paper pad. Add Glossy accents to leaves. Finish with Dress My Craft Clear water droplets.

Envelopes with Hydrangea Lawns 

So , the beauty of these papers cannot be described in few words. These have excellent finish and will give amazing results. Do get them and share with us what you create.

Mixed media tag tutorial

Hello everyone,

i have a mixed media tutorial to share today using oriental 
cardstock and some new fashion accessories.As i told in my 
last post the heavy weight cardstock
 is perfect for mixed media projects.So let see the step by step procedure.

Take a piece of "Floral oriental cardstock " and chipboard measuring 3 by 6 inches,
glue them together and apply a coat of clear gesso.
Apply modelling paste through stencils
 Spray some water first and drop the colors(i have used lindys and color blooms 
sprays)and allow them to spread on its own.
 Sprinkle some colourarte pigments and activate it
with water
 I wanted very light background,so i dabbed some white gesso and
sprinkled some white paint.
So here is my finished tag,i used some laces,stamped leaves on vellum,clay/wood 
embellishments to decorate my tag.
 Can you spot the fashion accessories?  i used Sunshine flower,clear water
dropletsand crystal heart charms.
They are just perfect for any kind of projects.

Textures with Floral exotica papers

Hi guys,
Hope you're doing great.
I am back with a new post with two different projects created using DMC floral exotica collection papers. The first one is a shabby chic tag and the second is a vintage layout.

The beautiful background of this tag is created using floral exotica papers with some shimmer sprays and inks. I have attached a few close up pictures of the yummy background below. I've used a resin frame with some mulbery flowers to decorate my tag. The background has a gold shimmer look blended with worn lipstick distress ink.
It is really fun to play with these papers.

I love the way this paper takes inks, smoothly blends and gives such a great result. You must have found some beautiful textures in my previous post as well but this one something really unique to try your hands on.

My second project is a vintage layout created using the same floral exotica papers with some inks giving vintage look.

Hope you liked my projects. 
Thanks you!
