Guest Designer: Keri Sallee

Today we have Keri Sallee with us showcasing some amazing projects that she created from our "Classique: Elegant" collection. you may remember Keri, she's guest designed for us in the past. We love her work so much that we asked her to come back. We know you will love what she has created to share today! 


I wanted to do something different with the Classique: Eegant collection so I decided to do a bright colored mixed media piece to contrast with the blues and blacks of the collection. I started with collaging pieces of vintage music as my background. I used Hedi Swapp's Burst stencil with her Color Shine in Mustard. To add dimension, I added Faber-Castell Gelatos in orange and yellow and blended them with my Mustard Color Shine. I then added spots of copper ultra thick embossing enamel with my vintage Heidi Swapp Stamps, stamped images and silver modeling paste using my Prima Marketing Stencil.


I used my Bird die from Sizzix and the Classique: Elegant collection, the marquee sticker from the Classique: Elegant collection and rolled flowers to finish off my mixed media canvas.


Vintage Sheet Music, Paint-Faber Castell Gelatos, Heidi Swapp, Synta Inc; Stamps-G Studio, Heidi Swapp, Stampabilities; Modeling Paste: Liquitex; Matte Gel Medium: Liquitex; Stencil: Heidi Swapp,  Prima Marketing; Bird Die: Sizzix; Enamel accents: Ranger; Embossing Enamel: Suze Weinberg's; Embossing Ink: Tim Holtz for Ranger; Ink: Archival Ink by Ranger

The 1 1/2 inch circular stickers from the Classique: Elegant sticker sheet were perfect fits for my 1 1/2 inch bezels. 

I layered words I cut from the same sticker sheet, added some fun metal embellishments and topped it all off with Ice Resin. 

Bezels: Hobby Lobby; Resin: Ice Resin; Stickers and Words: Authentique; Butterfly Rubon: Paper Studio; Crown: Tim Holtz; Key: 7Gypsies




 Materials: Zebra Charger from Hobby Lobby, Shape Die from Spellbinders, Flower Dies from Sizzix, Gems from Want2Scrap, Paint-Tattered Angels

  5. Thanks for the concepts you write about through this site. In addition, several young women exactly who become pregnant tend not to even seek to get medical insurance because they have anxiety they probably would not qualify. ..Cccam Server
