Creative Artiste #71 May 2021

 Welcome to a new challenge at

Creative Artiste is a monthly challenge blog for everyone who likes to mix their media. So, as long as you like to use various mediums on your creations, we'd love to see you enter the challenge.
A big Thank You to everyone who entered the challenge last month. Your projects were all wonderful and our winners have been announced on the blog.
Our theme is always
"Anything Mixed Media Goes"
and we have opportunities to be a Guest Designer for our winners.

I have created a new page for my journal to show you.

I used my Brayer to add lime green acrylic paint onto a piece of mixed media paper. When the green paint was dry I brayered bright pink acrylic paint over the page.

I used portions of a few different stamps randomly over the page with Archival ink.

The girl and crown are old AALL & Create stamps by Kassa Hayselden. I stamped them onto watercolour card and coloured them with watercolour pencils before cutting them out.

Texture paste was added through a small dot stencil.
I finished the page with white Posca pen splatters and black ink around the edges.

Now it's your turn to have fun and create your mixed media projects. You can enter our challenge up to three times. A full list of the rules is on the challenge blog.

Crafts Galore Encore May 2021

Welcome to May and, hopefully, some lovely weather. Spring has been a mixed bag so far weatherwise with some nice days and some grey days. Today is very pleasant here and we'll be enjoying the sunshine. 

But, before we do ....

 .... there is a new challenge at

Thank you to everyone who joined in with April's challenge. The winners have been announced on the challenge blog. This is a month long challenge and you can enter up to three times. There is a full list of rules on the challenge blog.

Our theme every month is the popular
"Anything Goes"
and our sponsor this month is:

Morgan's Artworld
who are offering 3 digi images to our lucky winner.

I made a 5"x 7" (13 x 18cm) birthday card.

I wanted to go for a classy Art Deco vibe. I started with a base layer of gold mirri card and layered it with black and then red card.

I used the gorgeous Cameo 14 image and coloured it with Copics and a gold Posca pen. I cut the image out and mounted it onto gold mirri.

I added the stamped sentiment onto black card and
finished the card with some punched butterflies and gold gems.

Now please visit the  Crafts Galore Encore challenge blog where you can see the wonderful projects and cards created by our talented team using Morgan's Artworld images.
Grab some inspiration while you're there and enter your "Anything Goes" creations in the May challenge.

Keep staying safe everyone!
