Hello Everyone!! Today I am sharing with you another project I created using this month’s product partner, Altered Pages and a TCW stencil. If you would like to check out more digital prints you can head on over to Jean’s website at www.alteredpages.com
So let step you through my process in creating this art journal page….I absolutely love this image called Cinco de Mayo
The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.
I started off by placing some scrap paper underneath sections of TCW749s Floating City stencil where I didn’t want my paste to go. Because my art journal is 8×8 inches I had to stencil twice. I used washi tape to keep my scraps of paper from moving. I used a palette knife to spread on my Colour Blast Australia Stormy Weather Paste and used a heat gun to dry.
Next I used Dina Wakley Scribble Sticks to add colour to my sky and the buildings. For the sky I sprayed some water onto my tray and drew the sticks in the water to create a watercolour consistency and applied with a small paint brush.
For the Buildings I drew the scribble sticks directly onto my buildings and used a wet paint brush to blend the colours. I also used Lindy’s Stamp Gang Sprays – Steampunk Sepia and Rusty Lantern Lime. I also applied the sprays with a small paint brush.
Once I was happy with the buildings, I then moved onto the water. For this I applied Lindy’s Stamp Gang spray Sassy Sapphire, 13arts Chalk Ultramarine and Chalk Indigo sprays using water and a paintbrush.
I wanted to add a little bit of a shimmer to my water so I used a dry paint brush to tap some Colour Blast Shimmer Dust Peacock onto my page and activated it with water.
To finish off my canal, I tapped some scrap paper to my Floating City stencil (just to make sure I didn’t get any paint where is shouldn’t go) and used TCW9021 Blueberry Pie Heavy Body Acrylic Paint and a sponge to dab my waves. I did this technique several times until I was happy.
Now for my gorgeous Cuban princess!!! I printed her onto normal A4 computer paper and after fussy cutting her, I then adhered her to a thicker card using Grafix Artist-tac adhesive sheets and then added some foam tape before adding her to my page.
To finish off my page I stamped a quote using Dina Wakley’s Gal Quotes and black archival ink. I cut the quote out into individual strips and adhered to my page.
Thanks for dropping by and hopefully this has inspired you to get creative with some digital images and stencils xx

Whoo hoo it’s Friday and today I am sharing a layout using some awesome chipboard by Dusty Attic Chipboard.
I had so much fun creating this layout and wanted to try and keep it simple as the papers are quite bold. So with this mind I decided to keep the colours to a minimum – orange, blue black and white.
The papers I used are by Fab Scraps #teens collection (I love this range – perfect for boy layouts). I covered the cogs, arrows, hashtag and title chipboard in white gesso first to help the colour pop. The skull I covered with black gesso.
For the arrows I used Dylusions Calypso Team and used a paint brush to cover the chipboard.
For the cogs and title I used Distress Stain Spiced Marmalade and Fluro Orange acrylic paint. Once they dried I then used a blending tool with Distress Oxide Black Soot to go around the edges.
I wanted to add more black to my page so I decided to used the page pebbles chipboard and ink with black archival Ink.
To finish off the layout, I used the fluro orange paint with a little amount of water, white gesso and Dylusions spray to splatter on my background and also on the small skull.
Dusty Products Used:
Page Pebbles #10
Skulls and Crossbone
Word Pack #37
I hope you enjoyed my latest creation and thanks for dropping by.
I have to apologise in being a little late in uploading this. It has been a rough week with Myself and both my boys sick. Today I am sharing my Scrap The Boys DT layout for this month’s sketch challenge and what an awesome sketch it is!!!
I decided to flip the sketch 90 degrees for my layout and I think it worked out pretty well. So here is my layout of Charlie enjoying his first ever play at a water park.
The materials I used for this layout are – 7 Dots Studio Dreamscapes papers, Dusty Attic Chipboard Star Frames, Blue Print Play and String Frames 12×12, The Crafters Workshop Black Gesso, 7 Dots Studios Hazy Days Stamp set, Distress Oxide Ink Salty Ocean and a Funky Flair Studios from the Tell Your Story range.
