Altered Suitcase

Hi Everyone, today for my tutorial I am sharing a mini suitcase I altered for Snip Art.

There is a process video at the end of the blog if you would like to watch.

I started by cutting my background ornamental chipboard to size and applied Finnabair’s liquid acrylic paint in Burnt Seinna.

For the cogs, I heat embossed the cogs with WOW embossing powder Weathered Gold. I painted the first layer of the balloon with liquid acrylic paint in Burnt Seinna and then heat embossed the top layer with WOW embossing powder Crusty Copper.

I covered the title and compass with Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Ink. The feather arrow and frame stamp chipboard I covered with Old Paper Distress Oxide ink.

I used Finnabair’s Matte Wax in Rusty Red and Rusty Brown on the outside of the suitcase to age it.

Hi there everyone, another month means another new collection by 3Quarter Designs and this collection is called Miss Aeronaut.

 

Miss Aeronaunt

For this collection I decided to alter a gift box, the box I used is about 11 inches long x 8.5 inches wide and 3.5 inches high. I started by painting the box with black gesso. Then cut “Amelia Earnheart” patterned paper to size, inked the edges using Ground Espresso Archival Ink and adhered to the lid of the box.

I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang magicals set Totally 80’s to add the pink on the background and also on the chipboard pieces. I used “Pink Rock” mat sheets on the hot air balloon chipboard and adhered the chipboard over the top.

I used left over strips from “Amelia Earnheart” and “Jean Batten” pp to cover the sides of the box, inking the side before adhering.

I used the elements sheets to cut out the clockface, butterfly, vintage key and number panel. I stamped 4 circles and an extra butterfly onto some scrap pieces from ‘Jean Batten pp.

I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang Starburst spray “Steampunk Sepia” to splatter on the top and used Darkroom Doors Tick Tock stamp set for the sentiment.

Reach For The Stars Art Journal Page

Hi there creative lovelies!!! Today I am up on the Snip Art blog with my art journal page I created using the Reach For The Stars collection.
There is a process video at the end of the blog if you would like to watch me in action.
I used a watercolour cardstock as my base and with a blending brush I used Distress Oxide Inks to create my galaxy. I also watered down some white paint to splatter some stars.
In the video you will see I originally heat embossed the stars but I felt the colours were too close to the background so I decided to leave them raw which is very new to me.

For the Planets, I used my aqua pen and Distress Oxide inks to add colour and I love how they turned out. For the title I used Finnabair’s Sparks paint and I also watered down the left overs and splattered onto the background to add some shimmer. To finish off the page, I added some paper dolls and used my Fineline Applicator to doodle around the edges.
Here is my video, I hope you enjoy it

Under The Sea Port Hole – Snip Art

Hello my lovelies, I hope you are all staying safe in this crazy time.
Today I am sharing with you all my newest creation for Snip Art. I have been wanting to create a project like this for a very long time and I am so happy with how it all turned out. The papers and molds are Stamperia’s Seaworld collection that my very dear friend Antonis Tzanidakis designed and of course the chipboard is Snip Art’s.
I used Deco Art’s fluid acrylic paints , Prima’s Impasto acrylic paints to create an aged look to the chipboard pieces. For the diver mould I used Finnabair’s Patina Texture Effect Paste.
For the Coral chipboard pieces, I wanted them to look more like seaweed so I used Archival Ink in greens and browns.
