Lizzy's Whimsy Stamp release!

So our lovely Lizzy Love started her adventure and cooperation with another stamp company. She had released her rubber stamps with amazing Whimsy Stamps ! Such good news! As a Designer Team member I have been asked to prepare a project for the day and I decided to do something else. So here it is...

 I used Oddball Arts Stamp which is 4"2 on the longest side and coloured with my Promarkers. I added a cut out from one of my old scrapbook papers and added a paper flower cut out. I sized and cut the tab for the filofax and painted it with my Dylusion Red Post Box colour spray and used some gold distress stain paint from Ranger on the edges to give it some sparkle. Then using my archival ink I stamped the hearts background and using a stencil and white pain did some do swirls. Used black marker to write the quote found on my pinterest board and do the border. Afterwards went off to laminate it and punch the holes for the rings! simple!

Wanted to put this into following challenges:

Winter mixed media.

Happy New Year's everyone! I hope you all had a fabulous and safe celebrations. 

Oddball Arts host another challenge on the blog: Winter. I created this mixed media page in my handmade album. I really loved working on this page and used variety of mediums. 

Firstly I used light watered down white gesso to cover some of the sparkles on this silver glitter page. It was really silver and I felt it would take too much from the page. Then I used some blue stain paint from Tim Holtz to add a bit of colour to the background. I used dry kitchen towel to blend it to the background a little. When it dried I added some perfect pearls to give the page some glimmer here and threre. Sprayed with a bit of mist to set it in. Meanwhile coloured the little digi stamp from Oddball Art using my Letraset Promarkers and used a bit of paint for highlights before cutting her out. After stamping the background with heart background stamp I glued the image on using mod podge covering only back of the picture. Added  some bling swirls purchased from Hobbycraft and some liquid perfect pearls from Ranger. I cut out the snowflake templates from my cameo and used modeling paste to finish of the page.

The challenges I am entering this page for:
