Wow can you believe it is already AUGUST?!!! I seriously have no idea where this year has gone! So today I am up on the Dusty Attic blog with my interpretation of the August mood board and can I just say this month’s board is absolutely stunning!!!

For my layout I am using some of the chipboard from the new release and Jen has done an amazing job creating these little beauties. I actually had to stop myself from adding more chippy!!!

For all of my chipboard pieces apart from the wordpl@ay #1 piece, I applied a coat of white gesso and then added colours using various Prima inks and sprays. I also applied some inks to the Dusty in Bloom flowers.

For my background I used a stencil and modeling paste to add some texture. I also heat embossed the frame around the photo and then added some highlights with inks.

Gift Set – The Crafter’s Workshop

Hey Hey Everyone!!!

Today I would like to share with you all how I created my own wrapping paper and card for a dear friend of mine.

To begin I started with the wrapping paper, for this I used plain white tissue paper. I mixed TCW9016 Spun Sugar Heavy Body Acrylic Paint with TCW9020 Raspberry Sorbet and TCW9024 Kale Smoothie Heavy Body Acrylic Paint.

I also mixed TCW9016 Spun Sugar Heavy Body Acrylic Paint with TCW9022 Grape Jelly Heavy Body Acrylic Paint to create the tones I wanted.

I also used TCW9018 Orange Slice and TCW9013 Iridescent Gold Heavy Body Paint as my other 2 colours. Next using the rough side of the tissue paper I applied my paints to TCW779 Wild Roses 12×12 stencil using a make up sponge.

I set it aside to dry, I didn’t use a heat tool as I didn’t want to burn the tissue paper and this is how it turned out.

Now for the card, I used TCW779 Wild Roses 6×6 stencil for my card and used washi tape to keep the stencil in place.

The tool I have used is from Kmart here in Australia and it is a make up sponge and brush. I found this was great as it has a tip on it. I used Distress Inks Spiced Marmalade, Picked Raspberry and Evergreen Bough as they were the closest colours I had to match the wrapping paper.

Then I added TCW9013 Iridescent Gold Heavy Body Paint to finish off the background.

I then stamped my sentiment using my Stamp Platform and a Heidi Swapp stamp set onto some white cardstock.

To finish off the card, I inked around the edges using Distress Ink Victorian Velvet and my blending tool. Then used foam dots to adhere my sentiment.

Thanks for dropping in and I hope I have inspired you to create your own wrapping paper for that special friend.

Just Create Art Journal Page – TCW

Hello Everyone!! Today is my turn on The Crafter’s Workshop blog with a mixed media art journal page using some of my favourite TCW stencils.

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

To start off I applied TCW9001 White Gesso to my pages as I had some marks on the paper that needed to be covered. I then used a brayer to apply some Paper Artsy chalk acrylic paint in Beach Hut and Inky Pool.

Next I used TCW790 Micro Bricks in the 6×6 stencil with Distress Paint Picket Fence.

Once that was dry, I then used TCW737 Love Sonnet in the 6×6 stencil and Distress Paint Spiced Marmalade.

Once I was happy with the background, I then added some stamps from Viva Las Vegastamps and black archival ink.

Next I stamped onto some tissue paper using Dina Wakley Splatter Girl stamp set and black archival ink. Then torn around the stamped images and using TCW9006 Gel Medium Gloss I painted the area that the tissue paper was going on and once placed on the pages I then painted over the top of the tissue paper making sure the tissue paper was flat.

Here are some close ups

I hope this has inspired you to use your favourite TCW stencils and get creative!!

Inspire Love Create Mixed Media Art Journal Page – TCW

Hi there everyone! I am back on The Crafter’s Workshop blog today with an art journal page I created whilst off on a girls weekend recently.

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

For this page I used the watercolour paper in my Dina Wakley large art journal. I started off by applying a thin coat of TCW9001 White Gesso using my silicone brush.

Next I built up my background using a swiping motion of the Distress Ink pads in colours Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, Cracked Pistachio and Peeled Paint. I also used the same colours on my tag but stamped the ink onto my non stick craft mat, sprayed some water and dabbed the tag onto the inks.

I used Distress Ink Peeled Paint and TCW361s Mini Tiny Circle stencil on my page and on the tag using my blending tool.

Next I used TCW780 Botanical Dream stencil and Shimmerz Texturez paste in Patina and Teal Me No Lies. I used a spatula to apply the paste.

Using TCW780 Botanical Dream stencil again and a blending tool, I applied Distress Inks Cracked Pistachio and Salty Ocean to add more pattern to the background. I also added some stamping using black archival ink.

For the tag, I felt it needed another colour so I added Spice Marmalade Distress ink around the edges a little on the middle of the tag. Then stamped the heart using black archival ink.

The tag needed something to sit on so I cut the burlap from the art journal and distressed the edges. I then used a paint brush to apply some TCW9001 White Gesso.

To finish off the tag, I stamped the words below and using my water pen and Distress Ink Salty Ocean, painted the letters. Then adhered them to the tag.

I stapled the tag onto the burlap using my tiny attacher and then used a liquid adhesive to adhere to the art journal page.

To finish off the page I added some doodling around the edges of the page with my paint pens.

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial and will be back soon 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.

Thanks for dropping in

COFFEE – Art Journal Page

Hello Everyone, it’s my turn on the The Crafter’s Workshop blog today with another mixed media art journal page. Here in Australia winter has arrived and I thought I would create a layout that was inspired by “Coffee”- which I am sure most of you would agree is essential for a cold winters day.

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

To start my pages I painted TCW9002 Black Gesso with a paint brush over both pages and dried with my heat tool.

Now to build my background…. I mixed TCW9023 Blue Jellybean and TCW9016 Spun Sugar Heavy Body Acrylic Paint together and then used a brayer to apply to both my pages.

I mixed TCW9016 Spun Sugar and TCW9020 Raspberry Sorbet Heavy Body Acrylic Paint together and using the brayer again applied to my pages.

Once I was finished with the colours I then mixed a small amount of water with TCW9016 Spun Sugar Heavy Body Acrylic Paint and using a small paint brush, I splattered all over the pages.

I realized afterwards I may have gotten a little carried away with the paint so now I am using a baby wipe with TCW9002 Black Gesso and just dabbing around the edges.

Now for my stencil and I absolutely love this one! I used 6×6 TCW796 Fresh Coffee and stenciled “Fresh Brewed” for the top of my art journal page and “COFFEE” for the bottom of the page. I used a make up sponge and  TCW9016 Spun Sugar Heavy Body Acrylic Paint.

Next I stamped my coffee images using Tim Holtz stamp set Fresh Brewed Blueprint onto some white card and then used Distress Crayons to colour them.

I used one of the stars from  TCW796 Fresh Coffee and my Distress Crayon to add to my ice coffee image.

To finish the pages I adhere all my coffee images using a liquid adhesive. I also added some shading using Black Soot Distress Crayon around the coffee cups.

Thanks for dropping and I look forward in sharing my next project with you soon xx
