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.

The Bibliophile Collection – 3Quarter Designs

Hi there everyone, I hope you all are staying safe…… well it’s that time again for a new collection by 3Quarter Designs. I created 2 projects using this collection. The first being a layout and the second I altered a desk organiser.

The Bibliophile

Here is my layout of 2 of my beautiful boys apple picking last year. I used 2 designer sheets along with 2 of the photo mats, chipboard typewriter and title as well as the element sheet with the frames on. I used any left over scraps to make the banners and tags.
