Time To Grow

Hello!
This months theme is 'Time', and it seems that right now I have been surrounded by people using that word! The end of the school year is upon us, so all the 'time to move on', 'time to leave', 'time to start new adventures' phrases are coming thick and fast! I've chosen on of my favourite phrases: 'Time To Grow', and have made a flower themed journal page....
I've used lots of WOW products, all in the circles of my flower! I used....
(From left to right)
Olive, Silver Foil, Fluorescent Blue, Apple Red, and Clear (over text paper)

My circles were layered up on top of each other...
As you can see, you can 'do things' on top of the melted embossing powder to embellish it further! I have stamped using ink, stamped using paint, scribbled with a black pencil and added dots and stars!
The flower is on a painted background, lots of stencilling and printing...
A little bit of a scalloped , doodled border...
And a stripey stem and leaves!
My phrase is a combination of alphabet stickers and cut out words..
I hope you like it!
See you next month,
Trish xxxx

"Time " - Canvas -

"Time" Canvas

Hi, Christine here with a project for this months's theme "Time"   The canvas was first painted with Black Acrylic paint then I inked the Brocade stamp over the top with Clear Versamark ink.


I then added Blue Pearl Embossing Powders and set the powders with a Heat gun.

 For the next step, I embossed the letters "Time" with WoW Gold Rich powders and added these to the top of the canvas. Next came one of my favourite techniques, I heated some Gold Rich, Copper and Metallic Pink Embossing Powders in my Melt Pot and poured the melted powder into the Flowers and Heart moulds. Once cool I added these flowers to the corner of the canvas. I also embossed the "Call Me" stamp from the WoW "Call Me" range of stamps and added this to the canvas under a picture of a clock. Rafia was wrapped around the canvas too and the embellishments stuck down with silicone glue.

I embossed two Die-Cut swirls with Orange Pearl powder and added these to the right hand side of the canvas sticking them under the heart mould.

I love to create canvasses as they are very in-trend at present and the powders and stamps from WoW give you a good base to work with. Once you have the base you can then design a range of canvasses for each room in the house. WoW powders come in so many different colours you will be spoilt for choice.

Products used in this project:

Metallic Gold Rich Pale.
Metallic Pink
Metallic Copper
Orange Pearl
Blue Pearl

Silicone Moulds
Daisy
Medium Rose
Heart Mould
Pansy


Stamps : Brocade
              Call Me

Time is Precious, Waste it Wisely



Hello and welcome back to WOW Embossing Powders,  Donna here today to share a project that I created.  This months theme is TIME.  It took a while to think what I could create, but once I had that pic in my mind it came together nicely.

TIME IS PRECIOUS...WASTE IT WISELY


I have had this Tim Holtz clock for a while now and knew I wanted to do something special with it.  I thought it would fit nicely into this months theme of time.


There was a lot of prep work for this project.  I covered the entire clock in white distress paint.  Why you ask, to give my surface some tooth.  I knew I wanted to emboss on it and I needed something for the embossing powder to grip to.  Once my paint was dry I covered it in a layer of Blue Topaz (such a stunning colour)  and heat embossed it.  I then got a mask out and in sections I added versa mark ans then vanilla white, again heat embossing.


I then spent some time adding more embossing powder for highlights,  I added Calypso to areas and  to blend them in I added more Vanilla White.  After I had got the colours right in my mind I then added some distress paint to areas.


For the inside of my clock I tissue papered and then sprayed with Lindy's gang sprays (fallen in love with these) then added some fussy cutting and built up a scene.  I have used Memory Maze chipboard birds and embossed them with Blue berry


These lovely little memory Maze Girls have been embossed with Seafoam White and added to my scene with some foam dots.  Once my scene was complete I added to clock frame with some flowers and a wee saying.  To me one of the girls is telling some thing to the other,  so I found the quote " Time is Precious, waste it wisely"  which again goes really well with our theme .

Some more close ups......

The gift of time

Hi everyone, Nikki here. Today it's my turn to do the WOW! inspiration post.... this month our theme is TIME, so me to there was only one thing that I wanted to do... a clock....
I picked up a clock at a discount shop a while ago and I wanted to turn it into something a bit more special.
So this is what I came up with.......
 I used some of the WOW! resist paper instead of a photograph and then inked it match the embossing powders that I had chosen.
 To create the leaves in the background I used passion fruit and primary chartreuse.
For the edge of the quilled flowers I used primary purple orchid and for the butterflies I used frozen berries, calypso and orange fizz. These are all new colours and I think they are just stunning!!!
A must have to your embossing powder collection.
Here's a close up to show off some of the yummy sparkle...
 As a little extra I wanted to share with you another great way to use your embossing powders... You can use them to create wonderful splatter backing papers. These are just perfect for all your crafty projects....
Here is one I made yesterday when I was playing....
It gives a great splatter effect and because you use embossing powders, it's textural too...

 To create your splatter effect you will need a small dish, an old brush (an old toothbrush is great for this technique), some water and some embossing powders - I have used primary purple orchid and frozen berries here.
Add a little water to your dish - the more water you add the more subtle your finished splatter effect will be.
Give it a good stir to mix it all with your brush, by doing this you will load your brush really well.
Using your finger, run your finger across the brush head, This will cause the powder mix to spray across your project.
Turn you project throughout this technique to make sure you get an even cover.

We would love to see what you create on the theme of TIME..... get crafty and join in the fun....

Happy crafting

Time - An Art Journal Page

Hi! It's Sandie here today with a Journal page I created for this month's theme, which is 
Time


 The background has been painted with Blush Pink, Vanilla Bean & Periwinkle acrylic paints. I then used the Sexi-Hexi clear stamp with Primary Blue Topaz powder. 


I embossed my clocks with the limited edition Passion Fruit Glitter and adhered them to the page with wet glue. Then I added some metal hands, secured with matching brads. 


For extra shading I used gelatos around the clocks and the edges of the page. I also used them to highlight the sentiment. When everything had dried I took the Cracked Leather stamp and stamped it randomly around the page with Archival black ink.

Time to create something pretty

I live in Sweden and I don't know where you all are but here it's really hot and very nice weather at the moment. I love the summer, everything is so relaxed and we start to get some lazy habits. I have a real problem getting to the scrap room to create, I just want to lay somewhere with a good book. But when I make myself sit down to create something it comes out in all kinds of unexpected ways, like the boring part of the brain is on vacation and are not paying attention anymore. So, I sat down to create for this months post and all I could think was: It's time to create something petty... And well, that's what I did. I just grabbed a canvas saved for a moment like that and spelled the words out with some left over chipboard letters.


I used Gesso to cover the letters and then I just sprayed some random mists in pretty colors over it all. Before it was completely dry I lightly sprinkled some Neutral Ultra Shimmer embossing powder over the whole surface and heated it to make the background shimmer. I also used an embossing pen to cover the words create and pretty, and the wooden starbursts, and then covered them in the same lovely glitter embossing powder. I also stamped around the background with a couple of the background stamps in colors close to the background and embossed parts with Vintage Champagne to give it all a bit of a shabbier look. I draw on top of the letters to make them stand out a bit. Actually I went a bit crazy and this was nothing like the picture I had in my head but I really like it because it's very playful. I hope you like it!

Take care/
Maya

I don't believe in time...

Hello!

As you probably know by now, the theme for this month here at WOW! is 'Time'.  This theme opens up a plethora of possibilities!!  As soon as I started thinking about it, the song 'Time' by Hootie And The Blowfish got stuck in my head and has been there ever since...hence the title of this post  :)

Despite the endless possibilities, I could not get the idea of a clock face to budge, so that's what I went with.  And, to me, birthdays are the measure of our lives in time - so I combined this with the clock face idea and this is how it went...


To create my clock face, I started by making a mask from printer paper with a circle die then stamped the WOW! De-Vine stamp in Versamark and embossed it using Calypso embossing glitter.  And, it would seem, Calypso is the colour of the month over at the WOW! shop - I love this colour, it covers really well with turquoise goodness and has a wonderful sparkle that my photography skills fail to convey in this image - sorry!  You'll just have to try it for yourselves to see what I mean :)

I hand wrote the sentiment onto my 'hands' - which is apt really!  It may not be obvious, but the sentiment is in violet to compliment the the turquoise.

A few pearls and some matting and there you have it - another card that took ages but looks like it took five minutes...which it might've done if only I'd had a plan when I started!  ;)

Thanks for taking the time to read this post - get your creative caps on now and I'll see you talented lot in the gallery!!

PS - Don't forget to keep checking back on all the other eye candy that will be provided by the DT throughout the month :)
