Creative Artiste #84 July 2022

 This is my second post of the day. Please scroll down if you want to see my Crafts Galore Encore challenge post for July....

 ....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 fabulous and our winners have been announced on the blog.
Our theme is always
"Anything Mixed Media Goes"
We have opportunities to be a Guest Designer for all our winners.

I recently took an online class from Art Workshops with Bipasha K and we decorated a shadowbox. As I had two more smaller shadowboxes I decided to decorate those as well to made a matching trio.

One of the techniques involved heat embossing. Another was stamping and colouring flowers. I used these throughout the three boxes.

One of the steps was to insert a small LED light strip to illuminate the circular aperture. I also used twigs and Prima Artstones.

I used acrylic paints and crackle paste on the outside of the boxes. The tops of the boxes were finished off with Tim Holtz Curio Knobs and twine.

I chose three Tim Holtz Paper Dolls to go with the three Aall & Create stamped sentiments.

It was a fabulous class and I enjoyed using the different techniques from Bipasha to create this little set of shadowboxes.

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

Crafts Galore Encore July 2022

We were told it would be a wet week here but we've been lucky and mostly dodged the showers. It would be nice to be able to plan ahead and not just have to rely on looking out of the window. Sunday is forecast to be sunny so we are keeping our fingers crossed that we can get out to visit our favourite local attraction.

Meanwhile .....
