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.

Christmas Card and Tag – The Crafter’s Workshop

Hi there my lovelies!!!! Today I am sharing with you all a mixed media Christmas card and tag I created for The Crafter’s Workshop. For those who know me, I am not a card maker but thought it might be nice for me do something a little different.

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

I will start my tutorial off with the card. I used a 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 inch card as the base and applied my Emboss It Dabber to TCW720 Snowflakes 6×6 stencil. Then used white embossing powder to cover the whole area and heat set with my heat gun.

Then I sprayed 13arts Ayeeda Mist Chalk light blue and Lindy’s Stamp Gang Starburst Delphinium Turquoise spray all over the card.

Next I used a separate piece of cardstock and applied TCW9049 Tacky When Dry Gel Medium through TCW717 Ornaments 6×6 stencil. I used my heat gun to make the drying process faster then rubbed some mixed media transfer foil over the top.

I then cut out the ornaments and used foam tape to mount them onto the card. I also adhered some ribbon to the top and used a sticker for my sentiment. To finish off the card, I used Couture Creations Glitzin’ Glamour in Antique Silver.

Now for the tag, I used a precut tag in white and smooshed Distress Inks Broken China and Stormy Sky all over the tag. Then did the same again but with Distress Oxides Ink Weathered Wood.

Once the inks had dried, I then used  TCW720 Snowflakes 6×6 stencil and applied TCW9026 Champagne Gold modeling paste. I used my heat gun to dry the paste, letting it bubble a little.

I used some stamps, snowflake punches, glitter and rhinestones to add some texture. To colour the stamped image, I used the Distress Inks Stormy Sky and Weathered Wood to make a grey/green colour and applied with an aqua pen.

Thanks for dropping by and I will back again soon with my next project xx

 

Treasured Memories Layout – TCW

Hello and happy Friday!!! Today is my turn up on The Crafter’s Workshop blog and I am sharing a mixed media layout I created for a very dear friend of mine.

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

The papers I used for this layout is the Rosalee range by Penelope Dee. I started off layering my background with plain black and white cardstock, corrugated cardstock and patterned paper.

I used a make up sponge and TCW9001 White Gesso to lightly cover the corrugated cardstock to add a little bit of softness to the layout.

Next I stamped the background with a script stamp and black archival ink. And also stamped the stitches around the edges using Plum archival ink. Next I mixed TCW9004 Light and Fluffy Modeling Paste with Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical Shakers – Autumn Maple Crimson to create a pink paste.

Before I applied the paste and adhered my patterned paper to the background, I measured where the paper will be sitting on the layout. I did this so that I knew where to stencil.

Then I applied the mixed paste to my layout using TCW781 Scrollwork stencil in the 6×6.

Next I covered my chipboard mannequin with TCW9002 Black Gesso and once the gesso was dry, I then applied Therm O Web Deco Foil Liquid Adhesive.

Once the adhesive was tacky I then rubbed on Rebehak Meier Mixed Media Transfer Foil Sheets – New Penny.

I then inked my Penelope Dee chipboard title and leaves using archival ink and painted my flowers using the same magical shaker I used for the paste.

Then I adhered all the elements to my layout using a liquid adhesive.
