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, xxx, Sanna
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 :).
Hello lovelies and happy Tuesday! Today I´m sharing another art journal page with you again. This time something colorful and bright with a fun Dylusions stamped sentiment. I feel this sentiment just fits the pulse of the time ;-)…
For this page I´ve used Distress Stain on the background, mixing four colours together on one page. Then I´ve sprayed some yellow spray ink thru my STAMPlorations stencil „A Whale´s Tale“ (upper right corner).
After that I added some Dina Wakley stamp images onto the background with grey stamp ink (Nuvo). Then I took another stamp from Dina and applied her Scribble Sticks onto the stamp and stamped the circles. To make them better stand out from the backgrund I added white Posca pen around them. Then I drew the people, free hand, my style. This is something I learned at Louise Nelson´s class in Norway.
And of course they have glasses and a pixie, like I do :). For finishing touches, I added some stamping with black stamp ink (stamps by STAMPlorations and Dyan Reaveley). And „green pox“ added with scribble sticks.
Love how this one turned out! I am so much enjoying playing in my art journal recently. How are you spending your time? Did you discover any new interests during the isolation? I wish I could have done more, but my knee does not let me…
