Hamsa trio gifts for Fantasy

Hello dears!


Anat here with mu new project to inspire you!  


For today's post I've altered 3 small wooden Hamsas (about 15*10 cm).

"The hamsa is a palm-shaped amulet popular throughout the Middle East and North Africa and commonly used in jewelry and wall hangings. Depicting the open right hand,  used as a sign of protection providing defense against the evil eye."



I used in my project Rose border chipboard  and some dies. 
On each Hamsa different dies, here they are:








Here are some photos:

Creating Album pages with Lindy's

Hello best gang!
It's Anat here and for today's post I'm bringing you a new Video Tutorial showing how to create Album pages with Lindy's Starburst and Vintage Sprays and Lindy's Magicals.




Oh my! I enjoyed so much creating this mini Album! so join me!

Basic Steps

  1. I previously prepared 4 spreads from a 300g watercolor paper and 8 flips for the photos. Attach the flips to the spreads 2 in each one. Try to place them in opposite sides so they support each other,
  2. With the help of a paintbrush, spatula and water spray add color to the pages using gorgeous Cotton Candy Pink, TiffanyLou Blue, Mad Hatter Mint Green and Cape Cod Coral Magicals
  3. Add stamping with Black Archival Ink, each spread different stamps (see below what I used).
  4. Add texture to all spreads with Light Paste and Stencil
  5. Add a second color to each spread – Opal Sea Oat, Whale Watch Blue, Yellow Rose of Texas, Fuzzy Navel Peach Sprays.
  6. For the Album cover, take another 300g paper, cut it in 4 pieces and repeat on every piece the 1-5 steps. (Each one with different colors). When dry cut them as you like for the Album cover decoration.
  7. Color chipboard embellishments with Burnt Umber, Screamin' Banshee Black, Golden Doubloons, Ethereal Emerald Vintage Sprays
  8. Add to the chipboards - Cotton Candy Pink, Cape Cod Coral, Glory of the Seas Magicals
  9. Add White Gesso dry brush on the Embellishments, in all 4 spreads.
  10. Give it a try and have fun:)
The Video Tutorial is a bit longer than my usual but I needed to show you all the magic that happens while creating with Lindy's.

Watch the proces here:



Here are so MANY photos from all possible angles LOL...

Nothing can stop you - mini challenge

Hello dears!
Mini challenge time at More than Words.


I made this Tag thinking about the phrase I've chosen: "Nothing can Stop you",  I wanted to acheive a stronf and dramatic effect so I choose papers from the Lost and found collection by 7 Dots Studio together with a big paper frame and red flower.
Love the result !

Altered Air Balloon for MMP

Hello Mixed Media friends!
Anat here and for today's post I have an Altered Air Balloon with a video tutorial.

 

I always try using new stuff in my projects and that includes unusuall materials like paper Coffee Filters, which I used in this project. It is so much and it gives us so many options.

When I create I usually have an idea I want to express, sometimes it's obvious and in some project, like this one, it has a hidden message for myself.

You can find the Air Balloon MDF Base in the Woodouts online store:



I made a video tutorial so you can watch the process:



Here are more photos and close-ups:
