Fold out Journal for Art and Soul Studio and an bonus art journal page

Hi I am up on the Art and Soul Studio Mixed Media blog to share with you a journal I made with a fold out journal that can be purchased on the Art and Soul Studio Store. At the end of the blog there is also an art journal page that I created whilst trying out some new products.

I have made this with plain black inserts for the photos.  There are blank areas on the coloured pages so that journalling can be made.

The cover was made with a Stencil Girl Stencil and 3D Gloss gel.
Once Dried I used a brayer to apply Dylusion paints - Tangerine Dream, Lemon Zest, Squeezed Orange.

I used these colours on the pages of the album and used the Black Marble to block out areas.

I then stamped areas with stamps from Paper Artsy, Kaisercraft and AALL & Create by Fiona Paltridge.

I coloured in the areas with Dylusions White Linen

Once dry I coloured areas with a combination of the Dylusion paints and Ecoline Brush Pens.  I used a white Posca Paint Pen to apply marks in the blacked out areas.

The black pages were sewn into the album - slightly smaller than the album so the colour still comes through.

Some More Close ups:

I have linked the products used that are available in the store.

As promised I have made an art journal page for fun -

I have made this in my Dyan Revealey art journal.

The background was created with Distress Oxide paints - Wilted Violet, Broken China, Faded Jeans and peeled paint.  I have used Dylusion stamp - Around the Edge and Put a Bird In it.

Other products used - Flutterby White paint, Black GelatoPrima Water Colours - Pastel Dreams, Black Water Colour Pencil, and Tim Holtz stencil - Faded Dots

Thanks for stopping by and til next time - Happy Crafting.

Here are some process photos and close ups:

I used a Kaisercraft Script Stencil with Colour Blast Paste - Bling 

While that was drying I used a Deep Red Dogwood Flower Stamp and Gold Embossing Powder on Acetate Paper to create some flowers, which I fussy cut out.

Here I show the difference with using flowers and then applying some black and gold glitter on them - they are transformed into something beautiful :)

Final touches includes Colour Blast Spray Ink - Bling for splatters and Liquid Pearls - Onyx Pearl.  The Prima wire was coloured with the Colour Blast Spray Ink - Bling.  The chipboard title was painted with Prima Acrylic Sparks paint - Dragons Eye

Touches of gold glitter washi tape and Tim Holtz Chatter Tape

Micro Beads - Black were also added

Mixed Media Tags for Memory Maze Chipboard

Hi Everyone, today I am up on the Memory Maze Chipboard Design team with some tags that I have created with a heritage theme.

I began bu covering the tags with Prima Time Traveller paper.  On one tag I used Tim Holtz Distress Collage - Crazing and the other Vintage.

Whilst they were drying I have covered my chipboard pieces with white gesso

I have then put the tags together laying smaller tags that I prepared in the same way as the larger tags but used Prima Platinum Clear Crackle and sprayed with Distress Mica Spray - Tarnished Brass 

The Swirl chipboard has been embossed using Stampendous Embossing Enamel - Aged Ivory and Aged Copper.  I wasnt overly happy with the copper colour and painted over it with Finnabair Metallique Steampunk Copper paint.

The flowers I have also coloured with the Steampunk Copper paint.  The figures are from the Tim Holtz Paper Dolls collection.

I have used Liquid Pearls, Dark Chocolate and Viva Pearl Pen - Black as final touches around the tags.

In this tag I have used Ranger Fine Embossing Powder - Black to cover the chipboard.  

Thanks for stopping by and I have provided a link to the Memory Maze Chipboard shop for the chipboard pieces that I have used:

Til next time - happy crafting :)

12x12 Layout for Scrapbook Boutique

Hi, I am up on the Scrapbook Boutique blog to share with you a layout I created using the Kaisercraft Cherry Tree Lane Collection papers.

I love this photo of my son's girlfriend and their dog, Knox!

I began by tearing out a corner of the patterned paper and adhering it to the darker paper.  I have then used a Boutique Crafts Numerals stencil and Colour Blast Paste - Snow White around where the photo matt is embellishments are going to be

While this was drying I tore up some papers from the 6x6 collection pad, inked the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Aged Mahogany and stapled in place.

I then embossed the numbers chipboard using the Colour Blast Embossing Powder - Snow White to co-ordinate with the paste.

I have then stamped around the layout using Paper Artsy stamp - Background 5 and then added the photo matt and embellishments.

Some Close ups:

I added final touches with Nuvo Crystal Drops and Glitter Drops and some Prima Micro Beads.

I have listed the products below with the links to the Scrapbook Boutique Store.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you got some inspiration from this piece.

Until Next time - Happy Crafting.
