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 then used the standard tip applicator with some TCW9002 Black Gesso and used it to draw some lines around the heart. For the heart I used TCW825 Love Frame stencil 6×6 with some acrylic paint.

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

Spread Your Wings Art Journal Page

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.

Next I used TCW836 Texture Love stencil with TCW9001 White Gesso and acrylic paint to randomly add some patterns to my art journal. I used a sponge to apply the 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

 

My Happy Place Art Journal Page for TCW

Hello there my lovelies!!!! I am so glad to be back in the swing of things after having 2 months away recovering. I have missed creating and sharing my work with you all. So today I am sharing an art journal page I created for The Crafter’s Workshop using one of my favourite stencils from the new winter 2019 release!!! There is also a video at the end of the blog.

To begin with I trimmed some watercolour paper to fit my square Dylusions art journal. Then used Distress Oxide Sprays – Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain and Cracked Pistachio. I used my heat tool to dry in between colours and also sprayed some water to help the spray move around on my paper.

Next I sprayed Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide Spray onto TCW267 Ledger. Then I sprayed some water onto the stencil, flipped it over and flicked the remaining spray all over my paper.

I dried my paper with my heat tool, then using the same stencil and sponge dauber, I applied Distress Oxide Ink Walnut Stain.

Next I used TCW854 Layered Wallpaper and TCW9009 Black Modeling Paste to the corners of my page.

Once it dry, I then stamped Coffee Archival Ink and Darkroom Door Stamp Numbers Border. I also stamped another number stamp around the edges of the page using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink.

I used Distress Oxide inks and sprays Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon and Vintage Photo to stamp Darkroom Door’s Butterfly stamp. I wrapped some gold and white twine around the page, adhered the butterflies and finished off with some Tim Holtz stickers.

Below is the process video.

Thanks for dropping and I can’t wait to share my next project with you all soon

Where There Is Love Art Journal – TCW

Hello Hello Hello!!!! Today I am sharing my latest The Crafter’s Workshop DT art journal page. This page is great if you want to create but don’t have a lot of time to do so. So let me show you how it was done.

The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.

I started by painting TCW9002 Black Gesso as a border around the edges of my small art journal page. I then trimmed down a page from an old book and started to add some colour. I love the effect a rubber brayer gives on paper so I used that with Dylusions Paints in Lemon Zest, Squeezed Orange and Peony Blush.

Using those same colours, I used a make up sponge to TCW687s Positivity stencil. I used the triangles and the flower images of the stencil. I also used TCW9002 Black Gesso for a border.

Next I used TCW778 Free Swirl and TCW9019 Candy Apple Red Heavy Body Acrylic Paint to cover the the whole page.

Next I stamped some hearts and my sentiment onto white cardstock and used a baby wipe to add colour to the hearts. I used the same 3 paint colours for this as I did for the background.

Then to finish it off I used a black and white paint pen to draw a border around the edges.

Art Journaling with Alcohol Inks and TCW Stencils

Hey there my lovelies!!! Today is my turn over on The Crafter’s Workshop’s blog and I am sharing with you all another art journal page I created using Ranger Alcohol Inks and TCW stencils. There is also a process video at the end of the blog if you wish to watch me in action.

The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.

To begin with I painted over a page in my art journal using TCW9002 Black Gesso. The page I used was one I experimented with a while ago.

For my background I used a sheet of lightweight synthetic sheet by Darkroom Door and cut it to fit my small Dylusions art journal. I then used Alcohol Inks – Sunset Orange, Dandelion, Shell Pink, Citrus, Pool & Cool Peri by dripping some of the colour onto my sheet and adding a small amount of Blending solution. I then used a straw to blow the inks around the page.

Sometimes you will get some sticky parts where the alcohol ink hasn’t quite dried right. I used Mixed Media Transfer Foil in New Penny by Thermoweb. I just used my finger to rub over the areas.

Next I put a small amount of Alcohol Lift Off ink onto my foam blending tool and dabbed it over TCW810s Blooming Garden stencil. I used the 6×6 stencil for this, then using a clean paper towel I lightly rubbed the ink off the page.

I then added some stamping to the background and used TCW9011 Matte Gel Medium to adhere my Humming bird and sentiment stamped image to my page. Then adhered it to my art journal.

Turn Mistakes Into Beauty Art Journal

Hello my lovelies!!! Today I am up on The Crafter’s Workshop blog with another art journal creation. So grab a cuppa, sit back and relax as I take you through on how I created this page.

The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.

To begin my page I used Distress Oxides and my round foam blending tool to create a soft background. Then I used my water spray bottle create some marks to the background.

Once dry I then used TCW803 Distress Lace in the 6×6 and blended Distress Oxide ink around the corners of my page.

For the center of the page I used TCW812 Coronet Wreath stencil and Distress Oxides Ink.

For the next step I had orginally used a stamp around the corners but didn’t like it so I used TCW755 Modern Lace and another Distress Oxide Ink to cover it…. Hence where the title came from for my page.

Next I used a combination of Colour Blast Pastes – Royalty, Deep Water & Just Blue and applied them using a spatula to TCW816 Bird and Butterflies stencil.

I used Dina Wakley Scribble Sticks to add some colour around the birds. Then I highlighted around TCW816 Bird and Butterflies stencil with a white paint pen.

I used the scribble sticks to add colour the my heart stamped image.

I used TCW9011 Gel Medium to adhere my Dina Wakley Tissue Paper Sentiment.

To finish off I splattered the page using TCW9001 White Gesso.

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and have a safe new year. I will be back with more projects in the new year

Being Creative – The Crafter’s Workshop

Hey there everyone, today I am up on The Crafter’s Workshop blog with another art journal creation.

I’m not sure about you but I find sometimes I experiment in my art journal with different mediums and techniques but don’t actually do anything with that creation, instead I move onto a new page. So I thought why not go back and find these pages and try and complete them. And this is what I came up with for today.

So my art journal pages had a mixture of Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical Shakers which have been on there for about 12 months!! So I decided to add a border to break up the colour, for this I painted TCW9002 Black Gesso and dried with my heat tool.

Then I applied TCW9010 Silver Gesso using a make up sponge through TCW248s Stencil Cubist. I tried my best to keep the stencil within the border.

Next I sprayed Dylusions Spray Black Marble through TCW662s Tile Mania. I didn’t want the whole area covered so I focused on the center of the pages. I used my heat tool to dry.

I wanted to add some stamping to my pages so I used Carabelle Studio – Dutch Tulips stamp set and Versamark. Then heat embossed with white embossing powder. Then coloured the tulips using some Dylusions sprays and a paint brush.

I felt that the white embossing powder was a little bold so I toned it down using a grey toned alcohol marker. I also stamped some butterflies from the 49 and Market stamp set – Butterflies Are Free and some black embossing powder.

To finish the page I stamped Darkroom Door’s – Being Creative stamp onto some white cardstock and cut the quote into pieces. I glued this strips to the page and used a black paint pen to add a border around each piece.

I hope this has inspired you to finished those art journal pages xx
