A fairy tale mind....

Hi everybody!
Here is my mixed media layout 'A fairy tale mind...'
I created this layout for my blogpost at 7 Dots Studio, and because I really loved the moodboard and sketch at Mixed Media & Art February challenge, I based my layout on these gorgeous, inspiring pink, black, white and golden glitter colors. I would like to enter my layout for this challenge.

The angel statue in the picture, is a gorgeous statue that stands in sombody's front yard in my village. I always love the elegancy it sends out. I took the picture a couple of years ago, but I still love it. It reminds me of something mysterious and looks like it comes from a fairy tale...It's angelic and graceful... just like the pictures in the moodboard.
And here is my video tutorial for you, I hope you will enjoy it.
I used the wonderful collections Cotton Candy Dreams and Writer's Block from 7 Dots Studio, chipboard pieces from The Dusty Attic, pink watercolor magical shaker and starburst sprays from Lindy's Stamp Gang and 49 and market gorgeous new shimmer and shine flowers.

Thank you for watching!
Love, Sanderijn

Mixed media canvas 'together'

Hello everybody!
I was asked to be guest designer at Words & Paintery this month, and here is my mixed media canvas, created with the color combination from this month.

Just a quick step by step how I created this canvas:
I first added texture with modelling paste and a stencil.
Second I coated the whole canvas with white gesso.
Third I added my Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst sprays with a brush and sprayed with a water bottle to move the inks here and there.
I used Rusty Lantern Lime, Sassy Sapphire and
Cotton Candy Pink.
When all was dried with a heattool, I build up my canvas with some textured thread, flowers, picture, wire and ofcourse some rhinestones, ultra fine glitter and a lovely flair from Accent Scrapbooking

Thank you for visiting!
Love, Sanderijn

Picture Perfect...#Angel

Hi everybody!
I am here today to share my layout based on the moodboard for
Even though I love the retro pics, and the soft pastel colors, you all know I have a hard time creating with those colors... It took me a while to get the result I wanted. But when I added the 49 And Market flowers, it finally came together, that was just what was missing!
 I have used the sketch as a base, and worked from there. So it isn't exactly the sketch, but it comes near...
I painted the chipboard pieces with Dusty in colour paints, and as you can see, I cut the Ornate Frame in half so I could create another kind of composition with it.

I used the gorgeous Flower Power Stencil with light paste and golden mica powder to create my flowered background.

Navajo white
Crushed Olive

Mixed media canvas 'My valentine heart'

The february color challenge at Lindy's Stamp Gang is so full of romantic colors I just had to create something Valentine related...
So here is ... My valentine heart...
 A canvas made with texture paste, starburst sprays, gesso, fabric, shaker powder and a tiny metal embellished detail...
When the magical shakers came out, I immediately had an idea to use them on fabric.
And what an amazing result they give!
Just sprinkle a little bit of powder on the fabric, spray with your waterbottle, and full color appears...magical!
I tried to keep this canvas minimalistic and wanted to create something that catches the eye immediately.
(I actually did three canvasses, but the first two ended up in the bin...My first idea was slightly different but I couldn't get it to work the way I wanted to....)
I hope you will join us this month at Lindy's color challenge

Life is beautiful....

Hi everybody!
I am so excited to share my creation for my first blogpost for Lindy's Stamp Gang
In the art of watercolor, artists often use heavy watercolor paper and wet it thoroughly with a brush, and then brush watercolors onto the paper to create landscapes - this is called Wet-in-Wet. I got the idea to use the Starburst sprays (a fluid watercolor) and let the colors move and blend in a certain way. This way you get a vivid, colorful background paper, that actually needs no processing afterward. I made a video for you to see how this technique goes.

My butterflies are all stamped and embossed with Lindy's wonderful embossing powder Midnight Teal. I actually have some older jars, but they don't seem to get empty, no matter how many times I use them!

I have also used the wonderful flair from Accent Scrapbooking 'life is beautiful' as my title.
And the chipboard title and branche from The Dusty Attic
And here is the video I made for you.

I was inspired by the gorgeous purple colors, the flower picture and the middle bottom picture. I am not sure what they are, but to me they let me think of butterflies. And I used butterflies a lot in my layout. From the sketch I used the two photo's on top of eachother with the title on the right.
Thank you for watching!
