Treasure Tags featuring Lindy's and Whichcraft

Ahoy all ye Lindy's lubbers.....Today we be finding the treasure using me tags!! You may want to get your hands on some treasure of your own such as Lindys Moonshadow Mists or Embossing Powder which is what you will need for this project :) I recently shared some tags that I had created. I had so many people ask for a tutorial, so I thought I would share the technique here.

12(1).jpg

To begin, I have taken some Whichcraft chipboard tags and used some texture paste to add texture to the surface, it really doesn't matter what type of paste as most of it will be covered up.

1(1)

Next, I have applied some copper colored paste to the detailed part of the tag in a very thick and textured fashion. If you don't have copper paste, just use any texture paste and paint it with some metallic paint.

3

While the paste is still wet, sprinkle Lindy's embossing powder in Midnight Bronze, Midnight Teal and Midnight copper randomly on top of the wet paste and leave a few areas without any embossing powder. Use the heat tool to dry the paste and activate the Embossing powder. This will bubble and give some great 'rusty' looking texture.

2

Next, paint the rest of the tag with some blue paint, then add a little more copper paste (or paint) around the outside edge of the tag.

10

Now this is where the magic happens, generously spray the entire tag with MoonShadow Mist in Tawny Turquoise and Buccaneer Bay Blue and dry off.

8

Look at all that shimmer...

7

Use black archival ink to darken the edges of the tags.

6

To finish the tags off I have layered some 'treasure map' paper underneath and on top of the tag. Embellish the tags with art stones and glass beads, metal charms and a little mesh ribbon and add some ribbon or fibres to the top of the tag....
ARRRRrrrggg.... we be done!

Under the Sea - for Lindy's

Hello Lindy's Tribe! Its Kerry with you sharing an 'Under the Sea' inspired tag. For this project I have used a selection of my favorite Lindy's Sprays and Embossing Powders to add both gorgeous color and awesome texture to the project.

10

To start, take some of the gorgeous Lindy's sprays in 'sea' colors, I have chosen Clam Bake Beige, Green with envy Green and TiffanyLou Blue. You will also need some white cardstock.

2

Spray the TiffanyLou Blue over most of the card and use the Clam Bake Beige and Green with envy Green more sparingly toward the bottom and side of the card.

3

Add some gesso and Washi to the background for added texture and dry off.

4

Using Clam Bake Beige and Green with envy Green sprays, color the whichcraft chipboard elements... LOOK at the fabulous shimmer!!!

5

To add some more texture to the chipboard, randomly apply some 3D gel medium to the pieces, sprinkle Lindy's Embossing Powder in Oakleaf Olive, Sunrise Salmon Gold and Morning Glory Azure into the wet gel medium and then dry with the heat tool, the gel medium will bubble and you end up with awesome texture!

6

Spray some lace 'Netting' with water and add the TiffanyLou Blue and Green with envy Green sprays, (the water will allow the colors to be a little softer), and dry off.

7

Add some additional sea themed embellishments and layer all the pieces onto the card, use 3D foam to add dimension to the project.

8

To finish off, add some pearls and art stones, splash the stones with a little of the Clam Bake Beige and Green with envy Green to blend them into the background. I have also added some metallic gilding paste to the raised areas to help bring out the texture.

Sigh.... look at all that yummy shimmering texture.....so gorgeous!

Tranquility - A Journal Page for Lindy's

Hello Lovely's. I have a journal page to share with you today. I had such a lovely time just playing in my journal, with no plan or idea what I was going to create, it was so peaceful and enjoyable and this 'tranquil' page is what I ended up with. I used just 3 of the fabulous Lindy's Starburst Sprays to add all this color to my page.

8

To begin, I spritzed some water on my pages. I lightly sprayed the Bling-y Blonde and Pretty in Pink Pink sprays and then added more water and moved the page around to blend the colors a little. I mopped up some of the water with a paper towel and then added a few splashes of each color to intensify the color in some spots and dried off with a heat tool.

1(1)

I added a little random text stamping using black archival ink.2

Next, using a paint brush, I applied some gesso to help soften the background.

3

I selected a couple of washi tapes with similar colors to add to my page, this gave me some additional texture and makes the background more interesting to look at. I added a little more gesso over the tape with a palette knife to give the page a more cohesive look and dried off thoroughly.

4

Using archival ink and some stamps, I have added a border and some circles.


5

I added my embellishments, a gorgeous lotus die cut and some dew drops. Some gesso was applied to the circles to help them pop up from the background. Using the Shabby turbine teal spray a few light splashes were added to the page above the lotus.  I applied some shading to the underside of the lotus with a black stabilo all pencil and then using the Shabby Turbine Teal spray and a paint brush, I painted the 'water' for the lotus to sit on.

6

A 'Whichcraft' chipboard title, some black archival ink around the edges and a few black splatters finished the page off.

'Magical' Door Knocker





Hello Lindy's Tribe! Have you ever wished you could walk through a magic door into a fantasy world where washing dishes and doing laundry are done with the snap of your fingers?  Me too, so I thought if I created a 'Magical' Door Knocker, all I would need to do it find the right door to knock on.... right? The key.... (pun totally intended) to the 'Magical' Door Knocker is, of course, MAGICALS!!!!

20180613_150011
To begin, I found an interesting piece of old wood in the garden and gave it 3 good coats of gesso and let it dry thoroughly.
20180610_155851(1)
Next you will need to choose your magicals, I have used Magical Shakers but you can use the original Magicals too!
20180610_181138
Using a small palette, pop a small amount of the magical powder into one of the wells, remember they are potent and you only need a small amount! On the craft mat, I have a small amount of matt gel medium and water. I use both the water and the gel medium to activate my magicals and apply randomly to the wood in washes, I start with a light hand and build up the color and allow the colors to meet and blend to create a new color.
20180610_190407
I have used Time Travel Teal, Autumn Maple Crimson, California Poppy and Magnolia Magenta Gold Magical Shakers.
20180610_200434(1)
You can see that by allowing the colors to blend you create additional colors.
20180610_200826
Once dry, use a little metallic gilding paste to bring out the texture.
20180610_201319
Finally, add your Knocker and embellish with some microbeads
20180610_213135
So many beautiful color variations from just a few little pots of magical powder...
20180610_213156
...magicals really are... well, ... Magical!
20180610_213201
Now all I need is to find the door that my Magical Door Knocker will open.... ;)

Shine like the whole universe is yours - for Lindy's

Hello Lindy's fans! It's Kerry with you. I have a journal page for you today, but you could adapt it to be a card, tag or even a scrap layout. I have been playing with the AWESOME Magical Shakers!

5

To start, I have added some Distress micro glaze through a stencil to some un-primed canvas stickers, this will give me a bit of a variance in color, it wont resist entirely as the canvas isn't primed, so the color can seep in from the sides.

1

Make up some 'watercolor's' in a palette using the Autumn Maple Crimson and Cowabunga Copper Magical Shakers and apply generously to the stickers, then use a paper towel to absorb the color back up by pressing on the sticker.

2

On a piece of watercolor paper, add a heavy misting of water and then let the Guten Tag Teal and Grab a Guy Gold shakers mix on the surface, dry off and then add some splashes of the same colors.

3

Add some modelling paste through a Whichcraft stencil.

4

To complete the project add some circle stamps using black archival ink and a scribbly border to the edge. Add some black and white details to the canvas stickers and adhere them with 3D foam for added dimension.  A quote sticker and some bling finishes it off :)

PaperClay play

Hello! Its Kerry with you today. Some of you might remember a picture I shared at the end of last year showing a bunch of paper clay embellishments, well bust out the Paper Clay and your Magicals, today we will make some together that you can add to almost any project.

To begin, take a small amount of paper clay and add a small amount of any of your favorite magical powders, you can use either the Magical shakers or the Original Magicals.

2

Fold the clay over itself to contain the powder inside the clay and begin to knead, you will see the color start to appear through the clay. You can leave it like this for some cool marbled effects or...

3

...continue to knead until the color is blended through.


4

I have selected a couple of silicone molds and dusted them with a little cornflour (this will help with releasing the clay from the mold). Press the clay into the mold. Gently manipulate the mold to pop out the clay piece.

5

You can even stamp onto your colored clay. Color the clay as above and then flatten out your clay, I popped my clay between 2 pieces of bake paper and pressed down with a book. Select some stamps and archival ink and stamp carefully onto the still soft clay.


6

Once your clay is dry you will have some beautiful embellishments to add to your future projects :)
