Try It On Tuesday~“Things with Wings”

This week on Try It On Tuesday the challenge is “Things with Wings”.  I decorated the new Prima Sprays box for a charm swap I’m doing for the Steampunk Soiree at the end of the month. 
I covered the label and edge the sides with krylon gold leaf, tied the tulle around and added the Cheery Lynn Gears Butterfly die (Steampunk Series). 
Be sure to check out the other design team members creations and come and play at TIOT.

Ustream Tonight~Victorian Masks & Pet Album

Tonight I will share with you two more masks I created this weekend.  We also, will be starting a dog album.


This is an album I created for our sweet Maltese, Yuki.  I plan on making another for my roommate, Dawn who just got a new puppy, Hanna.

Here I will take you through the steps to create your own mask:


I was able to purchase these at the dollar store at Halloween and can’t believe they even came on a stick!


White gesso applied to the mask and then adhered some lace:


I added the Prima doily die and at the end it got all covered up…lol and added more white gesso.


Then I started adding flowers, bling, lace and got so involved that I forgot to take pictures after this… Sad smile


So, these are the finished masks, as I did one in a light blue and the other in white, pink and black.  I sprayed these with Lindy’s Gang sprays:


So, I hope you can join me tonight for the pet album at 8:00 pm EST on my Ustream channel.  ~♥Hugz, Zandra♥

Simple Stories~A Charmed Life Mini Finished

I wanted to post the finish mini, I call:  Life Captured using Simple Stories A Charmed Life
Front and Back cover and I created the camera using the envelope punch board inspired by Kathy Orta’s cover of her book.
Here are the inside pages:
I love using the Prima Julie Nutting stamp/die sets and the Simple Stories page protectors.  If you like to give this album a try you can find the steps on my Ustream channel.

Just wanted to share with you the finished masks I did on my Ustream Class on Wed. July 2nd.


This is the finish mask with the gold tooth…lol

And if you miss the show I will share with you how I created the second mask using my octopus legs:


First I gesso the mask and added the zipper.


Then I added tissue paper from a sewing patter, cheese cloth and some dry wall tape.


Then started to fill the brain in…lol


Once I had everything I wanted on the mask I went over the whole mask with black gesso.


Looks so creepy all in black….eek!


Here you can see the difference from the black gesso and using the Prima Color Bloom Sprays.


Here you can see the Color Bloom Vintage Coal and I love how it has a green patina color.


And here you can see the different colors of the sprays:  Vintage Coal, Precious Stone, Vintage Gold and Worn Leather.


The finished masks and I love how they came out.  Did you notice the little mask hanging on the sides of the mask.  I got them at the flea market and they are called “Passport Masks”,


Well, I hope you enjoyed my first mixed media masks.  I hope you have a safe and joyful 4th of July!
