Another month, a new mood board challenge and this one is simply stunning with its beautiful soft blue tones.
So here is my new Design Team layout for the Random Arts April Moodboard challenge titled 'Devoted'
I incorporated two different card stocks for this layout.
I ripped one of them basically in half horizontally and inked the edges. Before adhering on top of the other card stock, I stuck some lace embellishments down where the two were going to overlap.
I used foam tape to stick the top one down so it is slightly raised above the bottom one, which you may be able to see in one of the close up photo's below.
I used a die to cut out the frame for my photo and then glued down some glitter to make it sparkle.
I placed wood wool under my photo and embellishments for added texture.
I used quite a few resins in this layout, which are all available from the Random Arts store online.
For these resins, I used wax on some and sprays on the others (see my product list below).
I painted some silver wax over the green leaves to blend it a little with the layout and I added some blue beads, stencilling and script stamp around the layout to finish it all off.
I hope my layout has inspired you to give this month's challenge a go. There is plenty of time to enter for your chance to win a $25 store voucher. Click here to enter.

I adore the colours of this months moodboard. Yellow is my daughter's favourite colour.
I started with gluing down some beautiful lace material, cardboard, mosaic glass chipboards,resin and mitforms.
I then gave it a good layer of white gesso.
The backing is a small canvas.
I then dicided to wrap some hemp twine around the canvas and then paint it with white gesso.
I then used Lindy's magical shakers (octoberfest orange), around the edge of the resins and chipboard to create a shadow.
Then i used Lindy's sprays
(glory of theseas gold) around the edge of the canvas. I sprayed water to spread it around the canvas.
I then used a combination of lindy's spray
(yellow rose of texas) and Peral Ex Powered pigments (scarlet) and Daler Rowney FW Artist ink to get the desired look. I used nuvo Crystal Drops (grande)on the chipboards and as a highlight on the tips of the flowers (resin).
Thank you all so much for viewing my blog. It really was a joy to work with my daughter's favourite colours. Please follow the group, please send your love and support to Randomarts.com.au

Here is some inspiration for the March moodboard challenge.
I ve used some lovely products from random arts. Of course i will list them below. Let me tell you what i did.
I started with a nice stencil from Dusty Attic and some texture paste, to make a nice background. And gave it a good dry with my heattool.
Then i covered it with gesso. As the resin figure and the chipboard.
Now the fun and messy part starts! Paint!!
I used yellow and red for the background. To get some different shades i mixed the yellow with a little bit of red. The eagle i painted brown. And the chipboard in metallic bronze.
And of course the canvas. But silly me forgot to take a picture of that proces. I first put the yellow colour and dried it. Then i went over it with the mixed colour, but only in the middle part. The excess i wiped off with a baby whipe. After i gave it a good dry with the heattool i used some wax to highlight the top layer of th texture paste and the resin eagle.
Now the only thing left to do is glue everything down. Underneath the claws i added 2 metal keys. from my stash. And the wooden word awesome. I thought to leave it like this as the wood gives a nice feel in combination with the background colours.

I'm back on the blog today with my new layout 'Beautiful' which is full of lovely soft pink tones.
The card stock I used had pretty pink tones already, so I simply added some white stencilling which I then put glitter on top of to make it sparkle.
Behind and around my photo I layered Kaisercraft's Lily & Moss collectables which were a perfect collection for this layout and what I wanted to do with it.
For the title I used Nuvo Stone Drops and for the chipboards I used pink embossing powder and wax.
For some added texture I put some burlap mesh lace behind and around my embellishments.
I weaved some feather ribbon through my flowers for another different kind of effect and put small art stones and micro beads over some flowers and around the layout.
I hope you liked this layout, I will be back again soon with another inspirational piece.
Until next time...

Altered Metal Box
I've had this metal pen box for a few months with no idea what to do with it. I love all this Egyptian so as soon as i saw these stunning Egyptian Resins available in store i knew exactly what to do.
I started by using a very rough sandpaper and scratched up the metal so the gesso would stick.
I gave the box a really good coat of white gesso.
I then wrapped the box with strips of ragged lace. (forgot to take photos)
Once dry i painted the box with white gesso and attached the resins with gel medium. I also painted the resins with white gesso.
I started by covering the fabric with a combination of lindy's spray,
(yellow rose of Texas, Glory of the Seas Gold)
I then dripped Lindy's starburst squirts
(Banff Blue) down from the top. I sprayed a lot of water to blend the colours together.
I also used Lindy's Magical Shaker
(Black Forrest Black). I used the shaker directly onto the resins and used water to spread the colour around. I added more
(Yellow Rose of Texas) until i was happy with the colour.
I then used Nuvo Crystal Drops (Grande) to highlight the details on the resins. I applied the (Grande) with a paint brush.
The photos don't show the light shimmer this project has. So pretty when the light hits it.
Thank you for viewing my project.

Our most exciting product with the funny name! Lindy's Squirts are a specialized dye system that is a thicker ink product you use as you would a fluid medium. Great for pouring, painting, mixed media, alcohol blending, collage, etc. Dyes lend themselves to permanence on porous surfaces like fabric, paper, polymer, clay, leather, wood, etc. Squirts are easy to mix & tint acrylic paints, art mediums, gels, gessoes, etc., without diluting them or changing their consistency. .
Banff Blue is a rich, deep blue with an amazing blue shimmer.
