Keep taking chances Art Journal page

Hello and happy Sunday!!! Today I´m stopping by to share another art journal page with you. I´ve used some of my stencil designs on this one. I wonder if you can guess which ones?

I´m again working in my Ranger Inc. art journal that has various types of pages in it. I love these kraft pages! It´s so much fun creating on them. For this page I´ve used Dina Wakley Media paints, washi, scribble sticks and her stamps. Oh, and fussy cut bits from her Collage Collective book.

Now can you see what stencils I used? It´s the Amaranth and the Art Flowers 2 stencil, both used for “negative print making” with acrylic paints. I´ve only used parts and I love the images they create! Definitely going to do this more often!! Other than that, it Scribble Sticks, Dina´s paints added in various ways and some older neon spray inks.

January feels like it´s going to be mainly art journaling and mixed media related :). BUT if you come here tomorrow, you might be in for a scrapbook layout :).

Just a little heads up, if you are interested in my stencil designs at STAMPlorations – here is a discount code for you at their store:

Hope your weekend was nice! Wishing you a good start into the new week!

Best day card

Hello everyone and happy Saturday! Today I´m sharing the last card of the mixed media die cut card series that was inspired by a Tim Holtz FB live.

For this card I used two circles from a bigger sheet of paper. Here is again the first layer of that particular piece of paper:

I really like how this card turned out. I´ve again used words that my dear friend Lizzy created for me.

Other than that I´ve used same techniques as on all the previous cards. For decor I used only Nuvo Vintage Drops.

I really enjoyed creating these cards!! Hope I could inspire you with my cards :).

Happy crafting,

Birthday cards

Hello and happy Thursday. Today I am stopping by again to share another set of cards, created while watching a Tim Holtz FB live.

Like I mentioned on my previous post, the cards started off with a bigger piece of paper that I had been playing on, while watching Tim Holtz demo on Facebook. This was my starting point:

This time I chose to create clean and simple birthday cards! The circles really stand out nicely from the plain white background.

So next time when you sit down, just make a mess, play around with your products and then, when you are finished, make die cuts and create fun cards. 🙂

Happy crafting,

Father´s Day cards

Hello everyone and happy Monday! Today I´m stopping by to share a set of Father´s Day cards. I created these cards from a piece I had been testing various Distress Crayon ideas onto.

I have layers of Distress Crayon added onto a big piece of paper. I was basically testing the ideas Tim Holtz had been sharing on his FB lives onto this particular piece of paper. In the end I had a big piece of bold colours and layers and I didn´t know what to use it for first.

Then I figured I could die cut the piece into smaller circles and use them to create fun cards. I have quite a few and today I´m starting sharing them with the first two. The fun thing is that they all have same techniques on them, but due to the big surface I was working on, every single one has different colours and patterns on them. So in a way, each is a very unique one.

And since the circle centerpiece is very bold on it´s own, I left everything else very clean and simple.

That´s it for today! Do come back this week to see more cards created this way. Happy crafting,

ATC card set

Hello everyone and happy Tuesday! Today I´m stopping by to share a fun Artist Trading Card set with you guys. This one was again inspired by one of Tim Holtz´s Facebook lives. I was watching his live and took some paper and paints out and went from there. This is the end result:

I played with Distress Paints on the background and lifted some paint thru a stencil to create a pattern. Then I added rub-onsand some old book paper pieces here and there. On top of that layer there is some stamping with Dina Wakley stamps. I created a big piece of paper while I was at it and later cut that piece into artist trading card sized pieces. I then fussy cut the ladies from a vintage womens fashion image book and added a stamp sentiment by Dyan Reaveley on top. Some rhinestore stars finish these pieces off.

I had so much fun creating the backgrounds. I really enjoy watching Tim´s lives so much. I am also trying to use product that I have instead of bying new stuff all the time. I have plenty of Ranger product at home already and they want to be used too :).

Wishing you all a lovely week!
