Explore The Unknown @ STAMPlorations

{My DT work for STAMPlorations}

Hi! Firstly I would like to say a big HI to my new friends, Nadya Drozdova and Marina Berezova. Thank you ladies for following my blog.
How's your weekend everyone? Mine has been good, enjoying the cool breeze and did a little bit of gardening each morning or at least try to or else the weeds will spread further with pride to defeat the green grass that sprawls beautifully on the lawn day by day. With rain without warning I prefer doing my garden in the morning unless the sky spills its water. My afternoon and evening is mostly spent indoor. On weekdays my routine differ for sure or in better term I can hardly breath sometimes {lol}.

And so the first Sunday of the month {time sure flies!} means a new mixed media challenge at STAMPlorations. Click here to see my fellow teammates's gorgeous designs with hope you may get some inspirations to start making your mixed media projects and submit to us.

I would love to share a mixed media project I did on canvas. The splash of colors took an evening because I kept changing colors. First I started with earth colors but realized it didn't fit. I changed to vermilion red mixed with orange then I finished off by splattering white paints. A failure! Almost a disaster! I left the table, made hot chocolate, had bun, join my son watched tv and faced the canvas again. I wanted something scintillate; something glimmer, something that pop! I stared at all the paints I have and eventually picked two shades of blue and gold!
That's it! Obviously this canvas has many layers and depth of different colors {smile}.
More close-ups:
I used texture paste through pebble waves stencil to make the design.
 The canvas was adhered with tissue paper in the first place, gave it a layer of gesso and let dry. As I go along, I decided to ads some mesh and drywall tape in the center part for additional texture and dimension. For this design below, I used delicate links stencil with texture paste. 
 To create the title, I used bold sentiments - explore with Versafine onyx black ink pad. Then I colored it up with white gel pen.
Lastly I splatter white paint. Looking twice, this canvas looks like galaxy. What say you?

Well I hope you like my artwork this time and looking forward to see your mixed media creations at STAMPlorations September Mixed Media Challenge  before end of this month. No cards however and please display this graphic below on your blog post.
That's all for today. Thank you for visiting me and hope you have a great week ahead.

Hugs and smiles,


  1. Fabulous texture and so much to look at. Yes it does look like a galaxy and so glad the colours you finally used worked so well. Very creative and amazing project x
