The little crafter show: Mix media Monday.

     Finally a mix media Monday. So today's mix media video I am working on the covers of the new journal. I know I still have some pages to go before I finish other journal I am working but I could not wait to at least start on the cover since I had so many ideas. Here is what I came up but to be honest I don't think that I am done, we shall see.

     So the books is had made and is 5x10. I already shared what I used  for mix media Monday journal 2 on a blog with a video. So today I am just decorating the front, back covers and adding a little closer to the book.

I used some white gesso and mixed with some Emerald dimensional gemstones form Art anthology  
 in a palate  and mix with a palate knife from Michaels craft  
 I used a two different kinds of brushes but the sponge brush worked the best for me. You can get these at any store.
I used more of the emerald paint with a stencil from stencil girl called unfinished by Seth Pater
Using a make- sponge to apply the paint, only to the front cover.

I also added a linen clear coat from Art anthology, front and back overs

I also use my creative station from Xyron which I got from amazon, I used punched the holes first with my big bite hole punch into my cricut faux leather, woodgrain.

Ribbon and jean cloth from Michaels to finish it off.

     Thank you so stopping bye today and I hope that you enjoy today's post. If you have an comments, questions please leave them down below or you can always email me at bye for now Eileen.

Mermaid vibes

I placed an order for a few new polishes that I just fell in love. I mainly really wanted to stamp and see how the shade named 9ml Green Duochrome Nail Stamping Polish Chameleon Lacquer Nail Art Plate Printing 001 from beauty big bang.  I can say that as a nail base color, applies well, and has fantastic color pay off.  Stamping so far I have to do some testing because I did a swap sticker to the bottles and the doesn't seem to show so well.

    So the bottles on stamping polish came, and I was so excited. The colors both looking beautiful in the bottles.  Since I had some swap stickers that I bought from Maniology to, place them on the and stamped out the with a lace image. The swap me stickers are black and white. This is supposed to help with you see how a stamping polish will look on a light or dark color nail. I think this is a great idea wished more companies would add them.

  I used a base coat on my nails. I think that I could have just painted my nails with one coat,…

Spring time Mani

So like most I am so excited for the warmer weather and beautiful spring colors. So far spring seems to be taking its time to get here. I have been somewhat inspired by the season to create a mani from the spring equinox sky which I found on google.  The image is of the night sky with stars swirling around in night sky. The colors look like to navy, purple, white and orange.
I tried a couple of different ways to all the colors, but I could make it work. I finally settled on adding a light blue since I was trying to turn this into a spring mani. A lot of the items that I used are from Maniology. So let's get into steps again I sorry no video for this post and few photos.

1)  You want to start with clean nails and then add a base coat. I used Maniology base coat, or sometimes I use  Sally Hansen quick dry base and top coat.

2) For some of the nails, I painted them with two coats of  Celestial  I wait for a bit and added Maniology speedy dry top coat.
The other nails I stamped …
