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.

Together Mixed Media Layout – Colour Blast Australia DT

Good Morning my crafty Peeps!!! Today it’s my turn over on the Colour Blast Blog and I am sharing my latest scrapbooking layout using Colour Shimmer Dusts and Colour Sprays.

I was trying to figure out what I could create for my DT project and I thought why not challenge myself by using colours I struggle with…..ha ha I know crazy right? But I find sometimes if I’m in a little bit of creators block this helps get the creative juices flowing.

So here is my layout.

Hopefully this has inspired you to create this weekend and until next time – keep creating!!!

So I decided to created some happy mail for a beautiful friend of mine featuring my favourite….Colour Shimmer Dusts and Colour Watercolour Shimmer Cubes! I also used the Stampers Anonymous Stamp set Papillon (which is also one of my favs!!)

This fun and super easy project was created by using the blow through a straw technique. I did seal the envelope first with White Heavy Gesso and once I was finished I sealed it again with hairspray – This was to make sure that if the envelope got wet during transit that the dust wouldn’t run.

Here are some process shots.

Thanks for dropping by and hopefully this inspired you to do create some happy mail.

See you next time xx
