Art Journal Page with Bling by Susanne

Hi there!

It's Susanne today and I'm sharing an Art Journal step by step tutorial today.


I start by colouring my primed page (gesso) with DecoArt Fluid Acrylics Cobalt Teal Hue and Blue Green Light. I'm using a baby wipe to apply the paints.


While the paint is still wet, I make some marks with a pencil.
I use a piece of scap paper and apply Hansa Yellow Medium. I'm pressing the tag onto my page immediately. The result are some grungy green areas.


I repeat this step with Quinacridone Burnt Orange.


I use a black Faber-Castell Oil Pastel to draw a frame arround my page. I also add some ochre tones with an Oil Pastel.


Now it's time for some BLING! The new WOW! Sparkles are awesome giltters. I used DecoArt Media Gel Medium to add Santorini Glitter in some areas. I also used a black acrylic fineliner to make some more marks.


I add some texture with the script from the new stamp set "Wall Art".
I finish my page by adding my focal point: The bird on a branch. I embossed the bird with WOW! Hot Gossip Glitter and the branch with WOW! Velvet Glitter. The title "Free Bird" are some homemade stickers.


Here are some more close-ups:

  1. I love the beautifully bright blues and greens in the background Susanne and the touches of gold and black with those bits of glitter too. The silhouette bird on the branch in the orange and brown is a great contrast and the bits of script in the background are a lovely detail. A fabulous art journal page. x

Life's A Beach

Good morning crafty friends, I hope you're all well and getting very creative this month!
As this month's challenge is summer and I live on an island it seemed only natural that my inspiration card would feature sea and sand.
To create my beach scene I started off with a piece of pale blue card and a rubbed a Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad across the top several times. I then sprinkled WOW Peppermint Tea Powder and Under The Sea Glitter over the top, tapped off the excess and melted with a heat tool. I created the sand underneath using Gold Pearl Powder.


For the sea I ran a line of PVA glue in the middle of the sky and sand with my finger, sprinkled with Under The Sea Glitter and melted with a heat tool. For the waves I added small areas of PVA straight from the nib of the bottle when added Opaque White Powder.




The birds and sentiment I have used Opaque British Summer Powder which is one of my favourite new powders, great colour and great name!
Finally, I added beach in…

Handy Stamp Storage Idea

Hello everyone... Happy Tuesday! :D

It's Sarah here with today's blog post created for our Monochromatic theme.




I don't know about you, but I always find I need to use stamps from a mixture of stamp sets and I thought it would be easier if I didn't have to slide each stamp set in and out of the packets all of the time.

I have a bunch of empty CD cases that I had almost thrown out but thankfully I hadn't as they turned out to be the perfect solution! The part that holds the CD easily popped out so I could then position my different stamp sets within them.

I found an old wooden CD box but it had no lid and as all clear acrylic stamps are best stored out of the light, I decided I would make a box lid for it... not just a plain lid though... a Wow Embossed box lid!


Here are brief instructions on how to make it:



STEP ONE

Using pearl silver card, I created a square to the size that I needed (145mm) and added 30mm wide rectangles around the square adding in some t…

I got to play with two Altenew Stamps: Basic Borders and Thinking Of You. I loved them so much I made two projects with them! 

I created this very easy background using the entire stamp set as a background and inked it up with our WOW! Embossing Powder Inkpad (UK Shop, US Shop) and using a variety of our Primary Embossing Powders (UK Shop, US Shop) to create this rainbow effect! <3 The Primary Embossing Powders go really well with each other and I simplay love how glossy they are.
