Bare Feet & Salty Hair Mixed Media Layout

Happy Monday Everyone! Here in Australia we have been experiencing some amazing summer weather so I thought I would create a layout using one of my favourite photos of the 4 men (big and small) in our family.

I tore a sheet of Corrugated Card and with a dry brush I light added some white gesso.

For the chipboard, I used Creative Layers #1 and Mini Captions #13. I covered the chipboard pieces with white gesso and then sprayed them using Prima Color Blooms sprays – Summer Sky & Soft Teal. I felt it needed another colour so I lightly spritzed using Lindy’s Stamp Gang Steampunk Sepia and fell in love with how it turned out. I also added some Dylusions Black Marble spray for the words “Feet” & “Hair” just to highlight.

For the background I used TCW662s Mini Tile Mania stencil with Clear Modeling Paste by The Crafters Workshop and Finnabair Stone Effect – Pumice. The sprays I used are Prima’s Color Bloom Summer Sky, Soft Teal and Dragonfly Blue. The colours were perfect on top of Blue fern Studios wanderlust – mountain view.

To finish it off I added some stamping using Finnabair Rust & Dust stamp set and both Art Stones and Mini Art Stones as well as some splattering using LSG Steampunk Sepia and the Color Bloom sprays.

Art Journal Cover

Hello Everyone!!!

Today I am sharing with you all a mixed media art journal cover I created using some amazing TCW products and Dusty Attic Chipboard pieces. My inspiration for this cover is from the Dusty Attic September Mood Board.

To start the background I applied TCW 9001 White Gesso using a dry paint brush. Then to blend the edges a little bit, I used a baby wipe. Once the gesso was dry (which doesn’t take long as it’s only a light coverage) I then used TCW202s Mini Harlequin stencil along with TCW9004 Light and Fluffy Modeling Paste using a silicone brush.

I then dried the modeling paste using my heat gun. Once that was dry I then used some 13arts Water based inks mixed with water in colours – Yellow, Scarlet and Bordeaux. Again used the heat gun to dry and then applied some stamping using black archival ink, Stampers Anonymous stamp and Darkroom Door texture stamp.

Once I was happy with the background I then covered my small doily from Doily #5 with TCW9001 White Gesso and covered the small Fleur de Lis with TCW9015 Heavy Body Acrylic Paint Black Licorice

Next I lightly sprinkled some Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical Shakers – Bavarian Blue and just lightly sprayed with water. I then coloured the cheesecloth with Colour Blast Shimmer Dust – Cobalt and Navy and some water. And now to assemble!!! As you can see I have cut the painted black doily chipboard in half, added the cheesecloth and some art stones. I adhered all my pieces using iCraft Mixed Media Adhesive

Last of all I adhered the Fleur de Lis chipboard along with the black title from Wordpl@y #3 black chipboard in the center.
