SUYS October Mid Minth Design Team Reveal - mixed media challenge

New month, new challenge!! This month we want you to create something with mixed media! Don't forget to also include a handmade item! 😃

Here is what I came up with, I finally scrapped some pics of my hurricane boy on the day he got glasses. 

A huge amount of mixed media in this one. I did smears of colourblast texture paste in 3 colours, used gel medium to adhere some pattern paper with the glasses on it, added in some black stencilling, some stamping in a few places too. On top I added a cut up white lattice border sheet and some string was haphazardly glued under the pic. This was a lot of fun! 

Items used:
Colourblast texture paste in black, orange and blue
Stencil used was
Glasses pattern paper byWhite Hexagon patterned resin border piece (cut up) by The Resin Rainbow.. 
orange striped dots by The Resin Rainbow.. 
square striped dots by The Resin Rainbow..

Blue arrow pin by Rainbow Splendour 
Glasses embellishment and blue flag pin by Delish Scraps 

Still got time to get yours completed.. checkout the SUYSBlog   or more inspo and to submit yours. Some fab prizes are on offer this month!

SUYS July Design Team Entry - back to nature

 Wow! What a tricky one this turned out to be for July! .. I couldnt find an image that worked so I had to visit the local show to take one while at the rescue koala pavillion!

I was unsure of how to make this all work and started out with some smears of colourblast colour paste in chocolate? on the background, had a sudden idea to add some gum leaves so out come the ancient HS leaves stencil which I the traced around and then filled in with watered down gelatos. Lastly I added some green and brown sharpie marker around the leaves and inside them.

I glued all the resin leaves down with E6000 by helmar.

Items Used:
Resin Leaves from The Resin Rainbow
Metallic Looking Mesh from Sirrah Sirrah as part of the goodie bag at Escape to Create recently.
Various paper layers from my stash.

Thanks for looking ..

suys June Design team Entry!

Welcome to June!

This layout came together really quickly once I found the image I was after! 
The challenge for this month was to use 2 colours next to each other on the colour wheel.
Normally with a colour wheel you use a colour opposite so they compliment each other but in this instance it was slightly trickier!

 The pic of my crazy daughter on crazy sock day at school was perfect with a mix of blue and green in the image already. 

Products Used:
Parts of the tulip border by The Resin Rainbow 
Green Resin Doily by The Resin Rainbow
Green & Blue Resin Dots
White Resin Deer from Forest Animals Resin Set at The Resin Rainbow
Blue Bow by Rainbow Splendour
Striped Pin by Rainbow Splendour
Green Daisy Pin by an old scrap company thepaintbrushgoesspotty
Various papers from my stash or from Rainbow Splendour Kits

Thanks for looking.
