I used LSG magical shakers Alphine Ice Rose, Polka Purple and Flat Fabio Spray Raspberry Lemonade on my background. For the butterfly wings I used Finnabair’s Don’t Forget To Fly stamp with with Guten Tag Teal & Time Travel Teal. I used a transparency to stamp the wings onto.
I used 2 background stamps – Uniquely Creative Numeric stamp and PaperArtsy EM49 Electica stamp designed by Seth Apter. I also used used TCW554s Mini Butterfly Collage stencil along with TCW9015 Black Licorice acrylic paint through the stencil and in my Fineline Applicator which I used to doodle around the edges.
To finish off the cover, I used Tim Holtz Paper Dolls and also his Quote Chips which I inked around the edges using Vintage Photo Archival Ink.

Hello there my lovely crafting friends, today I am sharing my latest creations using 3Quarter Designs new collection – Modern Man.
I love love love this collection especially having 4 men big and small in my house. I originally wanted to create some masculine projects but thought I would think outside the box and create something a little different. So here is my art journal page and mixed media heart canvas.
For my art journal page I used the chipboard cogs and heat embossed with using Wow Embossing powder. For the background paper I used 4th sheet shown on the paper pack picture. I used some PaperArtsy stamps and Darkroom Door stamps on the background along with a paint pen to add some doodling around the edges of my page. For my title I the title strip from one of the papers and finished with some splatters.
The background paper I used on my heart is the top 3rd sheet shown in the paper pack picture above. I added some brick stenciling along with texture paste. I used impasto paint to cover my large cog chipboard along with the moulds. I also used the left overs from the paper I used on the background for the banners, inside the circle frame and the torn pieces behind the frame. I also used the chipboard pocket and covered it with some paper and made it look like a banner which is sitting behind the cog.
I also used some rust effect paste and art stones for the finishing touches.
I hope you like my projects and I will be back soon with more of my creations.
Hey Hey and happy weekend!!!! Well it’s that time again for the Aussie Youtube hops share and this month we had to use animals on our project or to inspire us and to limit our craft products to 6.

Hey there everyone, I hope you are all having a great weekend. Well today I am sharing my very first design team member creation for Art Anthology. I have a process video at the end of the blog so feel free to check it out xx
- To start I covered my pages with white gesso and then use Metal Effects – Dimensional Medium in the Silver with a stencil.
2. Once dry, I then sprayed my with some water and then sprayed Colorations Sprays in Siesta Keys, Peacock Feathers and Indigo in that order. The water helps the colours blend.
3. For my title, I stenciled “Create Art” using black archival ink and then cut the 2 pieces out and mounted onto black cardstock.
4. I wanted to colour the stamped butterflies so I used the same sprays for my background and used an aqua pen (water pen) to create a watercolour effect.
Here is some more pictures of the finished page

Hello and happy Friday to you all!!! Recently I met with the lovely team from Fineline Applicator Aus and I fell in love with their applicators. So today I am sharing an art journal page.
I had so much fun creating this page. I started with TCW801 Skylight 12×12 stencil, I used a pencil to trace and then went over with a white gel pen. I then put some TCW9016 Spun Sugar Heavy Body Acrylic Paint into the Fine Tip Applicator with a little bit of water just enough so that it’s not so thick. Let the doodling begin!!!
I also used the the Black Gesso applicator to go around the title of the page. The stencil I used for this was TCW795 Rustic Signs
Here is a quick video showing how easy it is to these applicators
I have linked the applicators used to the Fineline Applicators website. Thanks for dropping by and I shall be back with more projects soon.
Happy Thursday Everyone!! Today I am sharing my newest art journal page for The Crafter’s Workshop. I love how this page turned out, so bright and fun.
Let’s get to the tutorial!! To be begin, I used a page from an old dictionary and tore that page into strips. I used TCW9011 Gel Medium Matte to adhere to my art journal page.
Once the medium is dry, I then used a paint brush to apply some acrylic chalk paint.
The next stencil I used was TCW832 Script Words
I used TCW9001 White Gesso and stamped with a lid to create some circles. Then used my spatula to create a line pattern.
I used archival ink and some different stamps to add more texture to the background.
I then decided to add some more stamped images. I used Distress Crayons to colour the images and to add shading. Here you can see I am using an aqua pen (water pen) to blend the crayon.
Thanks for dropping by and I hope you enjoyed my tutorial xx
