Art Journaling with WOW! Embossing Powders and Nicci Battilana

Hello everyone, As a new member of the WoW! Design Team I am excited to welcome you into my art studio where I experiment in all things Mixed Media. For today's art adventure, I thought we would visit the Red Queen from Alice in Wonderland and see where she hangs out in her 'down time' It turns out that she has a love for vintage velvet damask wallpaper. Who knew!?
For this art piece, I wanted to incorporate both visual and tactile textures. Therefore I created a mix of my own for the wallpaper effect. In the video below, you will see that I mix in equal parts of Pink Flock with the RENKE Diana's Love and a bit of Primary Ebony. In the end I darkened my background further with sepia watercolour. The next time I do a background such as this, I think I will add an equal part of the black to create a more dramatic effect.
In this photo you can see the details of the of her dress where I used the small print TAPESTRY Tim Holtz stamp and WOW!'s Metallic Gold Rick Pale Regular embossing powder.
Every regal crown needs a bit of sparkle!
Don't forget to add in a dash of glitz to her eyes.
I hope you enjoy my first little video!
Supplies that I used in this project: WOW! Primary Ebony WH00R(T) , WOW! Mai Tai WS292R(OM), WOW! Primary Apple Red Regular WH01R(T), WOW! Metallic Gold Rich Pale Regular WC01R(O) , WOW!

Keep creating & smiling, Nicci

Handy Stamp Storage Idea

Hello everyone... Happy Tuesday! :D It's Sarah here with today's blog post created for our Monochromatic theme. I don't know about you, but I always find I need to use stamps from a mixture of stamp sets and I thought it would be easier if I didn't have to slide each stamp set in and out of the packets all of the time. I have a bunch of empty CD cases that I had almost thrown out but thankfully I hadn't as they turned out to be the perfect solution! The part that holds the CD easily popped out so I could then position my different stamp sets within them. I found an old wooden CD box but it had no lid and as all clear acrylic stamps are best stored out of the light, I decided I would make a box lid for it... not just a plain lid though... a Wow Embossed box lid! Here are brief instructions on how to make it: STEP ONE Using pearl silver card, I created a square to the size that I needed (145mm) and added 30mm wide rectangles a
