Fly High – Mixed Media Tag

Hello and happy Thursday everyone!!! 
Today I am sharing with you all my very first mixed media tag I created for Sassy Scrappers. I had so much fun creating this tag and can’t wait to create some more!! There is a process video at the bottom of the blog if you would like to see how I created the tag.

To create the tag, I used the packaging from a 2 minute noodle box and covered it with Prima Rose Quartz – Grateful Heart pp.
Then using the dabbing technique I applied the following Distress Oxide Inks – Twisted Citron, Peacock Feathers, Abandoned Coral and Wild Honey. (I stamped the inks onto my craft mat and spritzed with water before dabbing and dried in between colours)
Once I was happy with the colours for my background, I then used the font stamp from Darkroom Door Hummingbirds set. Using the same stamp set, I stamped the hummingbird and leafy branch onto some white cardstock and used Lindy’s Stamp Gang Embossing Powder – Black Forest Black.
I then cut out the hummingbird and using a waterpen, I then applied Distress Oxide Inks Seedless Preserves and Salty Ocean to my hummingbird and applied some cheesecloth to the back.  I then inked around the edges of the tag using Distress Oxide Ink Black Soot.
After adhering my stamped bird, I then stamped “Fly High” which is from the same stamp set and added some splattering using Dylusions White Linen Spray.
And there you have it….. a mixed media tag!!!  I hope I have inspired you to create something special.

LOVE art journal page for The Crafter’s Workshop

Hello my peeps!!! How lucky am I to be able to share with you one of my favourite art journal pages on my birthday?!! I couldn’t think of a better time to be sharing the “LOVE”!!!

The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own. Click here to see what the other amazing team have created.

I started my background by tearing a page from a dictionary and adhering it using TCW9011 Matte Gel Medium. Once I gave it a quick dry with my heat gun, I then started applying my acrylic paint. I used my fingers to apply the paint as I love the effect you get and I love getting my hands messy lol. So I started from light to dark – Fluro Yellow, Fluro Green, Fluro Orange, Fluro Pink and last of all Fluro Purple.

Next I used TCW737s Love Sonnet stencil and not using the whole stencil, I applied TCW9023 Blue Jellybean Heavy Body Acrylic paint using a make up blending sponge.

Once that was dry, I then applied TCW9022 Grape Jelly acrylic paint through the circles of TCW754 Distressed Details. Using the same stencil, I then used the mesh pattern and TCW9016 Spun Sugar acrylic paint on both pages. On the left page I did however flip the stencil over and sponged the reverse side with paint.

I added a scribble circle stamp and cross stamp from VivaLasVegaStamps Plate 1495 and used Versafine Black Onyx and added some doodling around the stamped images using paint pens.

Next using TCW9015 Black Licorice acrylic paint and TCW527 Word Association, I sponged the word “LOVE” and also the stars on the bottom left hand page and top right hand page. Then to finish it off I put the stencil back over the stars and used a yellow paint pen to trace around the stars and I also used a pink paint pen to highlight “LOVE”.

Ocean Goddess Art Journal Page

Hello and happy Thursday everyone!!! Today I am sharing an art journal page I created for Sassy Scrappers using Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical Shakers and Dylusions Paints. Make sure you check out the video at the end of the blog!!

20170830_123126

When I started my page, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do but after using the magical shakers for my background I decided to do an under water theme….. I’m not much of an artist when it comes to drawing and this was my first time drawing a mermaid (will definitely need to to practice some more lol) she isn’t perfect but I wanted to show some different techniques when using the shakers.
So to build the background I used Polka Purple, Guten Tag Teal, Lederhosen Laurel and Bavarian Blue. I sprinkled randomly onto my page and spritz with water. I did use a heat gun to dry but if you have the time, let it air dry as the results are amazing.

I then drew my mermaid onto some watercolour paper and used the above magical shakers plus Bratwust Brown and Oom Pah Pah Pink to colour in my mermaid and adhered her to my page.

I then decided that I wanted to do a bit more to the background so using a wet paint brush I played a little more with the shakers until I was happy.
 
Next I used Dylusions Paint Dirty Martini and Fresh Lime to paint some seaweed and used a paint pen to draw some weeds. Then I mixed a small amount of water to White Linen to splatter onto the background.
To finish off the page I added some sparkle using a glitter glue – you can use Ranger Diamond Stickles and just like that my page was finished.
