HOWDY UmWowStudio Fans....
Hope you are having a WONDERFUL summer!!

Today, I played along with
Our Mixed Media Moods....
and their one year MOODIVERSARY!
Here is the challenge.

I went my color cupboard and pulled some colors to match....

I pulled out various scrap papers I had laying around and
colored them with the above colors.

I then pulled out a shipping tag and
covered it with the "made" papers
and cut the excess edges off.

I then colored a few flowers with color.

Next I pulled out a
I colored the Pom Pom and then added a bit of texture.

Hello everyone,

Corrie here, and today it is my turn to try and inspire you to use those fabulous UmWow Studio Chipboards. I have only used one in my Art Journal page but it is very effective !

I wanted to use similar colours to the background I have used, which is a gelli printed piece of paper. 

So I used three different embossing powders but in the end I had to use some markers too to get it how I wanted it. 

I added some green and later also some orange (no photo, sorry).

Better with a little green... 

Here is the finished page again. I also used a stencil and first I used Carved Pumpkin distress ink to stencil the hearts but didn't like that too much so I wiped most of it off again. I then took my white pen, put the stencil back on and drew around the faint orange hearts; I do like the result. 

I added some paper, lace ribbon, some stamped and cut out flowers and the little girl is also a stamp. Isn't that amazing. Looks like a photo, doesn't it. (All stamps used by VivaLasVegaStamps)

Here you can see the orange I added to the viewfinder. I used Pitt Big Brush markers for this because it dries permanent. 

I love this sentiment ! 

I have used the vintage viewfinder; you find it HERE

and the heart stencil 

You'll find it HERE

Thank you for stopping by today !

UmWowStudio New Release

Hi UmWowStudio Fans.....
I am SOOO EXCITED to announce 
UmWowStudio and I have partnered as part of

The new release consists of 6 Nature inspired chipboard designs.
And today I am excited to share my first creation with YOU!

One thing I LOVE about UmWowStudios chipboard it is extra thick
and able to take most anything you throw at it.

I began by choosing my UmWowStudio Knobby Branch
Then I applied a layer of Crackle Paste.
When dry I spritzed with Glimmer Mist and splattered
with Glimmer Glam.

I wasn't a hundred percent happy with the look
so I rubbed on a bit of StazOn.
When dry....I cut the my UmWowStudio Knobby Branch apart.
(Don't be's OK! I designed them to be cut apart)

Next I pulled out UmWowStudios ~ Grid Stencil
and applied a bit of Clear Gesso
onto a Natural Stretched Canvas.

I then pulled out the my UmWowStudio ~ Large Ivy
I applied a layer of Glimmer Glam to both sides
of the UmWowStudio ~ Large Ivy

Then I cut the Large Ivy apart and bent the leaves.

When the stenciled image was dry,
I applied a bit of color.

It wouldn't be me if my creation didn't "say something"!

Here are more photos of my creation.

I hope you enjoyed my creation!
More of my designs can be seen here!

I would LOVE to hear your thoughts!

Use your wings

Hello everyone,

and welcome to post where today I am sharing a small art journal page.

I went for the vintage style again today. I love doing a bit of everything ! 

I decided my bird cage had to be silver ! So i got out the embossing ink and silver embossing powder. 

Here you can see how that looked after two layers of embossing powder. 

I added some black archival ink to make it a little less shiny and 'new'. 

Here is a detail of my page. I started with a piece of 7 Dots Studio paper from the Writer's Block collection. I added some paint with a brayer and stamped it randomly. I stitched around the border with my sewing machine and added some pieces of paper, thread and fabric. I added some stamped butterflies and a sentiment by Tim Holtz. That finished it off nicely. 

I have used this Chipboard:
