A Guy's Birthday Card

As I have said before, I find it quite difficult doing a card for
a guy, especially if you need a new idea every year.  So this
time I mostly used what I had and did not look for a digi.  I
hope my guy likes it.

My First Try At Mixed Media On Canvas

I've been watching videos on how to do mixed media
(didn't even know what it really meant)  and after seeing
a video by Angela Holt, I got down to making a picture
of my own - and this is the result.  I must
admit that I rather like it!  It was also fun to do.

I didn't have to put gesso on the canvas as it came
with that already done. On the background I put a few
layers of pattern paper and I used a few stamps and
Modge Podge.  Also used molding paste and stencils.
I loved using the ink sprays.  I  used embellishments
that I had to hand (I was lucky to have some Petaloo
flowers).  Luckily we have a few shops that sell
lace so that wasn't a big problem to find.  It has been
a problem finding ink sprays here, so I have to wait
for holidays abroad (not too often) to get some items.
I searched online for the profile, as I wanted a
Victorian look. As you may have guessed, I like
glitter too.

Recycled Cereal Box

For a while I have been searching for something to keep
my 12"x12" scrapbook papers in. I wanted something that
would stand on my large computer table and where I
could easily see what I had. 

I just cut off a side of the box and then covered it with
pictures I cut out of a magazine. I used Modge Podge
over the box and after pasting the pictures, went over
them with Modge Podge.  Easy! Any feedback welcome.

Cards I've Made Lately

Well, I must say I've been absent from here for a while, but not
because I haven't continued making cards.  Perhaps I needed
a little time-out. But I'm back now.  I am adding some cards I
have recently made, but am not adding all the materials used
this time.   Also I am not on any design teams at present, so
I suppose that is another reason I haven't been active here.
