Altered notebook cover 'treasure memories'

Hi everybody!
Today I would like to show you my altered notebook cover.
This was a project that has been on my 'wish to make' list for more than a year now!
I finally had an idea, and because I really wanted to use the new waxes from Finnabair for this project, I waited till they arrived this week...
I was inspired to use these colors because of the gorgeous moodboard from the March challenge at Mixed Media & Art . I would like to enter my project for the challenge.
I started with painting the cover with black gesso.
When it was dry, I mixed texture powder with black gesso, so it had more 'body' to use with my Distressed Diamonds Stencil from Dusty Attic.
I painted my chipboard corner pieces also with black gesso, and when they were dry, I added them with 3d gel. I gave the cover here and there a layer of clear crackle varnish and when it was dry and crackled I painted that part of the cover again with black gesso. I did the same with a leaf from chipboard (the fairy queen's hair).

The art pebbles and the chipboard words also got a layer of black gesso.
When all was dry I softly dry brushed the parts with the new waxes. I used opal magic turquiose and metallique white gold. I used some acrylic paints mermaids sparkle too, on some of the art pebbles and the chipboard words.
After all was dry brushed I glued down the sisal, flower, fairy, words and art pebbles with 3d gel.

Hi everybody,
Here is my new mixed media layout for my blogpost at 7 Dots Studio and for The Dusty Attic March Moodboard challenge. I would also like to enter my layout for the March challenge at Scrapki-Wyzwaniowo 'Numbers'
I had a long thought about the Dusty Attic moodboard, but I became mostly inspired by the white feathers with the gold on top. So I decided to create a white and soft golden layout, with the gorgeous papers from Writer's Block.
This layout is about what I would love to have for my daughter in live: Dreams.
That she hopefully always will live inspired, shines brightly, stays strong when times get hard, and believes in herself and her dreams...
I painted the filmstrip chipboards with white gesso and sprayed them with Lindy's Stamp Gang Creme Brulee Cream
I used inka gold on the other chipboard pieces, the color old-silver.
On the title I used a little bit of white gesso too, just on the below half of the title, so the word dream really looks so dreamy that way!

7 Dots Studio products used:
Writer's Block Numbers stencil
Cotton Candy Dreams word stickers
Dusty Attic products used:

Catch a butterfly...mixed media canvas

Hi everybody!
Today the new challenges from Lindy's Stamp Gang and More Than Words are up on the blog and running!
Come take a look at all the great projects the design team members made!

I made this mixed media canvas.
I loved the softness of the color challenge moodboard from Lindy's, and I wanted the create something exactly like that soft and sweet wedding cake...
The challenge at More Than Words is one absoluty favorite for me! I love butterflies, I use them very often on a project, and the word beautiful too. So not a difficult challenge for me at all!
I have made a short video tutorial for you how I created the background of the canvas with the gorgeous Lindy sprays Clam Bake Beige, Merci Beaucoup Mint and Cape Cod Coral and I used embossing powder Terra Cotta Plum to stamp my butterflies.

Thank you for watching!
Love, Sanderijn

Mixed media tag for Lindy's Stamp Gang

Hi everybody!
It's my turn on the blog today at Lindy's Stamp Gang and I created this mixed media tag.
I started with using two pieces of paper for the tag, on the first I used a honeycomb stencil and added modelling paste, and when this was dry, I sewed the second paper on the back of the first. This way the tag has more body and can 'handle' the sprays better.
Second step: Add the Starburst sprays Screamin' Banshee Black and Frozen Jack Frost.
Use a brush and dip the brush into the jars of sprays, and paint the edges with Afternoon Delight Denim and Dark Chocolate Truffle. Spray another layer of Screamin' Banshee Black or Frozen Jack Frost if desired.

To make the flower: use black gesso to paint it first, than spray Afternoon Delight Denim and Screamin' Banshee Black on it. When the flower is dry, use white gesso to paint the edges a little bit.

Add lace, flowers, flair and other embellishments. Poor some glitter on it to finish with some sparkle!

I also made a video tutorial for you.
Thank you for watching!
Love, Sanderijn

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
