Look for the BlueRoomInk table!!!!
Here is a 9 x 12 inch mixed media Christmas Canvas. It has layers of stenciling and gesso dimensional gifts and tree. The metal bells embellishment was colored using alcohol inks. This would make a great seasonal decor item in your home.
I am doing a challenge in Creative Chemistry 101 making altered metal. This is a metal sheet that I have embossed with the snowman and "painted" with alcohol inks. I stamped the snowflake star using archival ink. I cut the mini pine tree out of grunge and painted it with dabbers then painted a bit pf perfect pearls onto the pine.
I decided to stamp my large flower stamp using Archival orange ink then sprayed with Dylusions sprays and inked them in black to make them pop. They were really bright....a bit too bright...so I covered them in Tim Holtz's Frosted Film. http://vimeo.com/46197986 I hadn't heard about this product but ran into the one and only box at a scrap store that I frequent. It toned the color down just right. I adhered them with multi medium.to the canvas after stamping a border around the entire canvas. I then decided to apply glossy accents to the stamped numerals. Then I added some strings of dots using Crystal stickles. The stickles dots took on the color that was underneath them. I believe that I am done!
So now I am hooked on Dylusion sprays and methods of layering on canvas. This is a 16 x 20 canvas. I am trying to take a photo of each layer that I add....then I walk away for a bit until the next inspiration hits me. I love the look and texture of gesso. And I also realize that I need something to pop the colors. I just have to decide what! Maybe tomorrow will tell me what to do....oh how I love to create.....it clears my mind of all my troubles.... :)
I have decided to work on a canvas after being inspired by a friend on CC FB page. Nicole has created a monster in me. I am learning as I go but I thought that I would post the canvas as I progress. I forgot to take a picture of the canvas before adding the gesso flowers so I guess I am starting with step 2! Who knows where this will end up! The canvas is 16 x 20.

Good morning everyone. I am formally changing my blogspot name to BlueRoomINK.

I hope you all have a very creative day!
I love working with paper, metal, paint, ink, and any other medium that I can get my inky hands on. I continue to create unique art pieces that can be used as cards, home or office decor. Exploring the blog world for new techniques is my favorite past time. Come and explore through my blog anytime!
Now it is August 23, 2010! I have officially changed my blog to Blue Room Creations! This is because my scraproom is a very turquoise colored room! I love it because it is bright and cheery and that helps with creativity at times. I hope to start some videos in the near future....I keep telling myself....baby steps. :)
I started this in April 2010 and now that it is June I finally figured a few things out on updating my blog. So at least it looks a bit more interesting. It has been fun learning!
