My latest piece for the Craft Barns Design Team is a Halloween journal page.
I used a piece of mixed media card and stencilled the Tim Holtz wall with modeling paste, then I gave it a coat of gesso.
I painted the wall with watered down acrylic paint and spritzed with water, drying the wall between each colour, I also used a little brimstone wings Color Bloom.
I fastened some chain to the wall with brads and put some jump rings on the ends. I used some quinacridone gold paint to make it look like the metal had rusted.
I stamped some Carabelle Studio images onto white card using black Archival ink , coloured them with pencil and cut them out, the glass dome was stamped onto acetate and cut out, the Flonz Craft skeletons were stamped onto card and cut out, the knife was hand drawn.
The Table was stamped with an Impression Obsession stamp and distress ink. I stamped the mad doctor with a Stampers Anonymous stamp, I cut him out so that he looked like he was holding the knife, I cut his head of and added the skull. I added some gauze, die cut spiders, a Tando pumpkin, some red paint for blood and some graffiti on the walls
I stamped some Indigo Blu circles onto a gelli print and distressed the edges of some paper scraps, I glued them to the tag together with some thread and a Tim Holtz Photo Booth image. I added a few metal embellishments and a Tim Holtz small talk words.
Today I'd like to share with you a tag that I've made for the Go Tag Thursday challenge, the theme is Autumn.
I sprayed inks on the background and wrapped some metallic thread round the bottom. The Crafty Individuals stamp was stamped onto a scrap piece of card and the leaves were cut out of scrap card using Sizzix Thinlits dies.
For the background I stencilled modelling paste through a Prima stencil and gave it a coat of gesso when it had dried. I coloured the background with acrylic inks and Color Bloom sprayed with water and let it run down. I stamped some skulls onto tissue paper and glued them to the background then I splattered some white paint. The large skull was stamped onto white card and cut out. The sentiment was stamped onto card that had been coloured with Color Bloom. I used pencils to colour the moth.
The stamps that I used.
Stampers Anonymous - large skull and sentiment.
Carabelle Studio - background skull and moth.st
Flonz Craft - background skull.
I used red card and washi paper for the tag.
The images had been stamped and embossed onto card that had been coloured with Infusions, the colour is green but it looks grey in the picture.
The image at the top had been stamped onto shrink plastic.
I added red thread, ribbon and charms.
PSX - bamboo on the background.
Inkadinkado stamp - main image.
Paperartsy - image on shrink plastic.
The other stamps are unknown.
Good morning everyone, I hope you are having a lovely weekend.
I'm very pleased to be hosting this weeks Sunday Postcard Art challenge, the theme I have chosen is Wizards.
I used a couple of That's Crafty dinky stencils with modelling paste for the wall then I glued some gauze to the bottom half. I painted the card with gesso. I coloured the background with Daler Rowney and Magic Color Artist Acrylic Ink. I stamped and coloured the images with felt tips and coloured pencils. I cut out the images and glued them to the card.
The stamps I used are
Stamps Happen - the wizard.
Hampton Art Stamps - bottle.
Stampers Anonymous/Tim Holtz - label, skull and bat.
Cherry Pie Art Stamp - candle.
Thank you for looking, enjoy the rest of the weekend.
I was thrilled to find that a tag I'd made had been chosen as one of the top 5 in the Try It On Tuesday Book Pages challenge and I was even more thrilled when I was asked to be a guest designer.
I have made a couple of postcards for my GD spot - the theme of the challenge is Sun/Moon/Stars.
For my sun postcard I used modelling paste with a Memory Box stencil, then I gave it a coat of gesso. To colour the background I used acrylic ink sprayed with water.
I kept adding more ink and water until I got the colours that I liked.
I stamped the PaperArtsy flower onto some white card twice, I coloured the flowers with the inks and cut them out, I glued one of the flowers to the card and then I cut the outer petals of the second flower and glued it over the first flower.
My moon and stars postcard was made the same way as the sun card.
I used a Crafters Workshop stencil with the modelling paste and used acrylic ink to colour it. I dry brushed some white acrylic paint over the top of the stars and then I added some stickles to the stars. The Clarity stamp moon was stamped onto white card, coloured with watercolours, cut out and attached to the card with thick double sided tape. I wrote the W. Clement Stone quote and added it to the card.
Please take a look at the challenge to see the fabulous samples that the very talented design team have made and I hope you can enter the challenge as well.
Rae Missigman was the teacher for lesson 9 - A Painted Paradise. For this we had to do an image transfer on matte medium using a picture of somewhere we've been or somewhere we'd like to go. I've done image transfers before but not on matte medium, when the paper was rubbed away the image was left on the matte medium and was transparent, you can't see this on the photograph. I've used an image of the Cote-dazure.
I glued my image transfer to the journal and used watercolours, neocolour and acrylic paint on the background and stencilling.
Thank you for dropping by - have a lovely weekend.
