Day 2 of 12 Days of Creative Christmas: Watercoloring Stamped Images with Distress Oxide Inks


Hi everyone! Welcome to Day 2 of my 12 Days of Creative Christmas. Today I'm making a card using a stamp from Simon Says Stamp that I color using Distress Oxides however I return to my beloved Daniel Smith Extra Fine Watercolors for the background. I do a little white resist embossing as well in this video. While it was a process to get through, I love the card result and hope you do, too! Please let me know what you think about this series as well as anything you'd like to see. I'm excited to keep sharing more creativity with you over the next few days.

Be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel so you don't miss any videos in this series. I have plans for mixed media, watercolor, ornament making, tags and of course more cards!

Day 1 of 12 Days of Creative Christmas: How to Foil on Watercolor Backgrounds


Hi everyone! Welcome to Day 1 of my 12 Days of Creative Christmas. I decided at the last minute to create this series so wish me luck! I have so many ideas and have bought *ahem* so many new Christmas stamps that this series was the perfect way to make myself use at least some of them! I hope you will enjoy it. Today I pulled out my Gemini  FoilPress machine to do some foiling on top of a watercolor background I created. I absolutely love the end result. I also show you how easy it is to foil with your thin cutting dies that I'm sure we all have in our craft room! Please let me know what you think about this series as well as anything you'd like to see. I'm excited to keep sharing more creativity with you over the next few days.

Mixed Media Mania II: Fall Edition - Change Takes Courage Canvas




We are so excited to be back with another Mixed Media Mania YouTube hop! Our Spring debut hop was so incredibly successful and your comments asking us to do so definitely inspired us to bring it back. We are looking forward to these hops every Spring and Fall for your pleasure.  I hope you will enjoy this one just as much, if not more than our last one! Honestly, this was just a little idea that grew into so much more than I ever imagined. The support from the art community from new artists joining the hop to our ever growing list of sponsors is just so humbling. It is a blessing to be able coordinate (although I am learning more and more about myself as a "coordinator" haha) these for you.


As always, we don't have a theme. We want our artists to create from a place that brings them pure joy because I feel like that is when you get the most inspiration from someone. And that is exactly what I've done with my project for you today. All I knew is that I wanted to use these colors and then I dug into my stash to find as much product I already own from our amazing list of sponsors that you will see like Ranger Ink, DecoArt Media,  ThermowebMixed Media Place, Shawn Petite and more along with some new goodies from a new company that is joining us this time. Red Lead Paperworks was incredibly generous in sending some of us product to use in our projects today and I definitely encourage you to check them out! It's like a candy store for Mixed Media Artists! 


My canvas is full of texture, color, texture and more color! This is a YouTube hop so to be eligible for the giveaways, please head on over to my YouTube Channel Inky Fairy Designs now to start the watching and leaving those comments along the way. 
A HUGE thank you to our amazing sponsors! It is always so incredibly humbling the amount of support and excitement we get from the awesome companies. Here's how to enter: No purchase necessary. Subscribe to artist channels. Comment on each video in the hop and add your country in parenthesis. The giveaway will run for ONE week from from 12:00 pm Pacific Daylight Time October 5th 2018 when the videos go live to 12:00 pm Pacific Daylight Time October 11th 2018.

Winners will be announced October 19th 2018 here on my blog as well as DeeDee Catron.
