Mixed Media @ Webster's Pages

From Webster's Pages Blog ;) 

" Jaz Lee often does "off the page" type projects, and we often gasp when we see them! Here, Jaz is turning junk into art by starting with a recycled box as her base: 

Believe it or not, Jaz prepared the box for altering in five simple steps:
Step One: Layer tissue paper all over the box 
Step Two: Apply Mod Podge. Then gesso.
Step Three: Mist with mask. Then mist the top of the board till its wet enough to drip down.
Step Four: Randomly add glitter.
But it's Step Five where she really shines! 
Step Five: Embellish using cutouts from Webster's Pages papers and products from Webster's Pages. You could stare at these photos for hours and still not see everything there is to see here. Wow! "

Sincere Thank you D&K for your gorgeous photo.
Hope you like the gift ;) 
Thank you for dropping by.

 That flower was designed by Irini who makes Get Creative Embellishments and she has graciously offered us two of her flower packages to offer as a prize!

 For the second prize winner, you can win these brass and metal skeleton keys from Zeus and Zoe Etsy Shop.

 At Zeus & Zoe, our challenge for June 15th:  Create a project that includes Mixed Media. You can drag out your mists, glitter, paint, fabric, markers, inks and anything else to create something amazing. Please gather inspiration from this image when you are creating your project. You don't have to USE the image, but certainly can if that tickles your artistic spirit.

The Zeus & Zoe kits are designed to have many vintage elements and lovely new papers to inspire you. You don't have to use a kit from Zeus & Zoe to play along. Although it might help you to be inspired!

Goodbye Hambly Blog Hop

Sharing with you some of my work created with Hambly Products ;)

As all of you may know by now, Hambly Studio is closing down. Harry Hambly is retiring.
Harry Hambly not only produces scrapbook papers but Hambly Studios has been in business for more than thirty five years. 
I have also learnt that Harry Hambly used to design posters and stickers in the '60's. He was Corita Kent's printer. Some informations hereand here's an article here on the Hambly history.

The first year I started scrapbooking, I was always hoping that I would one day have the honour to be a part of Hambly Studio's Design Team. I always wanted to know more about Hambly and their products as they are so very unique and I love Hambly transparencies so much. 

Last year when I received the email invitation to be a DT for Hambly Studios, I was so excited. and now...with the closing down news of Hambly, sniff sniff...bidding adieu is so difficult but I will always remember the very fond memories I have had of Hambly, in a long time to come.

Here's the order of the Hop;)
