Victorian Goth Inspired Mixed Media Canvas

Hello everyone!!

Today I am sharing my latest mixed media project, a victorian goth inspired canvas.
I fell in love with mixed media a few years ago. It was right up my alley!!

I was inspired to make this canvas as a birthday gift for a friend, who was having a Victorian Goth themed party. Let me tell you, that was absolutely beautiful!!

Here is the canvas:






This is one of the projects that you see it in your head, but once you start it totally changes direction! I had originally planned to cover the entire canvas is keys, but once I got started I liked it better with only half the keys. The pearls were not in the original design, but became part of it when I was looking for my gemstones.

You can watch the whole process from start to finish:




Supplies used:

Tim Holtz Black Soot Distress Paint in Black Soot
Strands of pearls from Hobby Lobby (I buy them on the roll from the sewing section)
Canvas
Old Keys (I got mine from my work. They were going to throw them away!!)
Tim Holtz Mica Spray in Antiqued Copper
Tim Holtz Distress Crayons in Fired Brick, Barn Door, and Candid Apple
Gemstones
E6000 Glue
Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Fired Brick, and Hickory Smoke
Alcohol Ink in Black
Alcohol Ink in Bronze Metallic Pigment

Old Curiosity Shoppe Scrapbook Canvas

Happy 4th of July all!!!

I have spent my day off at my desk, working on another scrapbook canvas. I love to take my scrapbook pages and adhere them to canvas. This way I can see them everyday.

Today I have made one using Graphic 45's Olde Curiosity Shoppe. I used an old photo of my Grandfather from when he was about 12 years old.






I fussy cut several images from the collection along with the chipboard for almost all of the decorations. I also used some of the Tim Holtz Keys, Keyholes, and gears to give it more depth. I also had a silver distressed butterfly left over from another project that I added to this.
Hope you have all enjoyed your Holiday!!

Graphic 45 Design Team Audition 2016

So it's that awesome time of the year when Graphic 45 has their design team auditions!

So my name is Altina Robinson, and I am 24 years old from Springfield, MO.
I was introduced to Graphic 45 when I was I believe 16, and the Steampunk Debutante collection was phasing out (I have both the 12x12 and the 8x8 in my stash.)

I have been into arts and crafts since I was a little kid, and was introduced to paper crafting when I was about 15. It started out with scrapbooking, which turned into card making, which turned into art journaling, and well, you get the point.


So for my first project I found a Tim Holtz mini clipboard at Michaels and knew I HAD to do something with it. So for this project I used the new Voyage Beneath the Sea collection.
I love this collection ( I LOVE steampunk) and I love all the bright colors.







For my second project I made a birthday card with Botanical Tea for a friend.
I am a bit obsessive about my scraps, so I have them all organized by collection.

Feel Better Shaker Card

Hi everyone!

Today I am sharing my very first shaker card!! I have been watching all kinds of videos on shaker cards and I have just been so inspired to make one myself. So I went to Michaels and Joann and bought everything I would possibly need for fillers (hooray for coupons!!)

I was inspired to do a get well card for the 6th challenge on the Lawn Fawn Fanatics blog.

I used the Baked with Love and the Treat Yourself stamp sets for this card.





I am so happy with the way this card turned out. I love the colors, and I LOVE the shaker element. I will definitely be making more of these cards in the future!!

If you want to see how I made this card please check out the video below:
