Picture Perfect Mixed Media Layout – The Crafter’s Workshop DT

Happy Thursday my lovelies!!!

Today I am back with another video but this time I created a scrapbook layout using some pretty cool products. So sit back, relax and I hope you enjoy both my step by step tutorial and video tutorial which is at the end of the blog xx

I started with some white cardstock and tore some strips of Tim Holtz Tissue Paper, then applied them to the cardstock using TCW9011 Gel Medium Matte. I used my heat tool to dry once I was happy.

Next I applied some crackle medium around the edges of the tissue paper. Once dry I then used Distress Oxide Sprays in Faded Jeans, Walnut Stain and Fossilized Amber to build my background. I used a paint brush to move the sprays around the page until I was happy and made sure to dry in between colours.

I love using this stamp by Darkroom Door – Number Border, it is perfect for the boy layouts. I stamped it randomly with black archival ink.

The next step I wanted to add some more texture so using TCW835 Plaid Fringe stencil in the 6×6, I used a bristle brush to apply Nuvo Embellishment Mousse.

I then used TCW9027 Grecian Gold Modeling Paste and TCW737 Love Sonnet 6×6 stencil just to add a little “Pop” to my layout.

I inked the edges of some corrugated cardstock using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and created some tags using some patterned cardstock from my stash. For the chipboard title, I applied some TCW9001 White Gesso and then used Distress Oxide Ink to colour it. I used the same 3 colours as the sprays.

To finish off the layout I inked around the edges of the cardstock with Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink and added some splatters.

 

Thanks for dropping and I hope you have enjoyed my tutorial, until next time 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

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.

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

 

Just Be Happy Art Journal Page

Happy Thursday Everyone! Today is my turn at The Crafter’s Workshop Blog and I am sharing this page I created using photo paper, Distress Oxides and of course TCW Products. 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.

For this I used my large Dina Wakely art journal, I am still trying to get use to using such a large journal but who doesn’t love stepping out of their comfort zone? lol

To being I used a sheet of A4 glossy photo paper and apply my distress oxides to the paper using a rubber brayer and also using the smooshing technique.

I used my heat tool to dry between colours. Then used TCW812 Coronet Wreath with more Distress Oxides.

Now for the magical part….. I used a baby wipe to wipe away the oxides and POW!!! The end result is amazing!! The colours are vibrant

I used as make up sponge to apply TCW9002 Black Gesso to TCW749 Floating City.

I used TCW9002 Black Gesso to cover up a page in my journal that I did some experimenting on a while ago. Then for a border, I used TCW804 Mesh Blocks to add some doodling with my Uni Posca white pen.

After adhering my photo paper to the page, I then added some stamping for a title and just like that another art journal page done. Here is the video….

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

 

Take Risks Art Journal Page

Hello there my lovelies!!! Today is my turn on The Crafter’s Workshop’s blog and I have created this art journal entry. I also have a process video which you can watch at the end of the blog.

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

I begin with building my background using Dylusions Paint in Squeezed Orange and Vibrant Turquoise and TCW9016 Spun Sugar Heavy Body Acrylic Paint. I use my rubber brayer to apply light coverage to my art journal pages.

Once dry I add some splatters using the left over paint. Then using a make up sponge I apply TCW9016 Spun Sugar Heavy Body Acrylic Paint with TCW773s Connected Dots.

Next I randomly apply Vibrant Turquoise paint with TCW764s Scrambled Numbers and dry with my heat gun.

The next layer I use TCW361s Mini Tiny Circles with Squeezed Orange paint.

And for the last layer I use TCW336s Mini Letters with Funky Fuchsia paint.

At the moment I am loving having a border on my art journal pages so here I used some washi tape around the edges and applied TCW9022 Black Gesso with a paint brush.

I stamped my sentiment and image onto some white cardstock and used a Stabilo Aquarellable Pencil for some shading. Then added splatters using TCW9016 Spun Sugar and TCW9015 Black Licorice paint which I watered down.

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.
