Off the Page ... On your Bike ....

Off the Page projects can be so fun!

This month our girls are creating up a storm and today Leonie, Tracey & Solange 
have some great items to share with you.

This gorgeous canvas from Leonie

For my OTP this month I created this 8x10" canvas panel to hang in my home. I adhered the bubbles chipboard to the panel with gel medium and then went about adding colour with Lindy's Stamp Gang mists. The title piece is embossed with gold stampendous enamel. The lovely big chipboard heart was painted red and a coat of Dimentional Magic added. I also added some painted leaves and flourishes under the flower clusters" Leonie.

Tracey decided to have a go at Art Journaling ...

For this month's challenge I decided to really step out of my comfort zone but create something that I have longed to do. I decided to create my very first journal pages. I created the background using sprays and twinkling H20's, texture paste and stencils. The images of the birds are from napkins. To add some more texture I have used ID birdcage chipboard, Denise Flourish IDDD0002), Denises Trellis (IDD0007) Phrase (IDP0086). I have blended the chipboard into the background by painting with white gesso and spraying them with the same colours as the background.

And finally, Solange has just blown me away with this project.
Oh . My . Goodness .


Everything about this is just amazing.
All of the tiny details are just perfect.
And all that chipboard is just fabulous!

Thanks for sharing girls
