Howdy Bloggers , Lisa here with a Friday Mixed Media update.
I've been away retreating at a Mixed Media event, which explains my absence last week.
Connecting to creatives in a physical sense,catching up with the Scrapping Clearly crew.
Oh, chilling, relaxing and watching Peg work her magic with Inks...ahhhhh, so good.
Today I am sharing a few pieces I created using images from a Victoria Frances Calendar.
(I really don't know how one could toss a calendar like this after the yr was up)
Thanks Jason for sacrificing your books to the masses. I love these beautiful dramatic images and laying one down onto your pages really makes for producing some seriously eye popping incredible pages quickly.
I came home from the retreat and reworked this image onto a canvas board,
adding depth and interest by adding extra layers with the tree stencil.
I tucked in some dyed pieces of fabric to add a textured feel and it also complimented the colours in the image. The WRMK frame I embossed by using a stamp and then emboss powder I loved that this gave another texture but only subtle.
I added by adding some offcuts of paper from the Fancy Pants Designs "Hello Sunshine" Collectionkit.
This kit contains 2 each of 6 designs of 12x12 double sided patterned
paper, an Ephemera pack and a Tags and Labels pack - and it is such fun
and bright colours and pattern.
Hello Scrapping Clearly followers, Leonie with you today.
Today I'm sharing my take on the June combined challenge.
Visit our Facebook group for details on how to enter, there is a shop voucher to be won.
Take a look at those cute painty fingers and rainbow colours (big hive five to that)!
I started following the sketch by rotating it anticlockwise and thats where I kind of veered off on my own creative tangent! I did however stick with the luscious rainbow of colour with some added black and the photo's were all about some down time and relaxing with friends so I've drawn on those images from the mood board as well.
The large flowers were stamped with the Floral Stamp from the Prima Bloom Collection.
I painted black Dina Wakley paint directly on to the image and then stamped on the page.
I love the intense image that stamping with paint gives. It doesn't always turn out perfect but it certainly makes a bold statement.
There is also some light stamping and texture paste on the background.
I kept my embellishment to a minimum - some glittery chipboard, a Charms Creation Heart and those lovely Heidi Swapp acetate words. To finish off I added a doodled boarded with a Fude Ball pen and some black splats
Thanks for stopping by, we'd love you to join us in our June challenge.

Cheers from Leonie Neal-Dawson.
I started my layout with some Dylusions paint in Fresh Lime
on a sheet of Bazzill Marshmallow cardstock. Now I have well loved this paint
and what remained in the pot was nearly all dried. I decided to use it up while
I could still get it out of the pot. The lovely thick texture was perfect for creating
some ridges and interest in the background of my page.
I then added some extra colour with Dylusions Spray Paint in
Calypso Teal. I have added some text stamping with Ranger Archival Ink in black
all around the edge of the page and through the centre. I also swiped the ink
across the textured paint to pick up the patterns I created earlier.
I created layers around my photo with Heidi Swapp Frames and
Tags. I also used some Crate Paper Good Vibes papers in black and white together
with black machine stitching. I added some chipboard stickers and cut aparts from
the Pink Fresh Escape the Ordinary Collection.
I coloured some Heidi Swapp Acrylic Stars with a black posca
pen to match my page and scattered them across the layout.
I added my title with grey chipboard letters
from the Pink Fresh Boys Fort range and added some dymo tape lettering to
Hope you have found some time to get crafty this Queen's Birthday Long Weekend.
