A set of DWM tags

Hello and happy Friday! Today I´m stopping by with another tag share. These, again are created with plenty of Dina Wakley Media product. I am so enjoying this at the moment!

These are again done using plenty of gloss sprays, but also Dina´s heavy body paints as well as her collage collective book, her washi and tissue paper. The stencils on the right tag are all by The Crafter´s Workshop and the little words are handmade by my friend Lizzy. I adore them!

This background is pressed on splots of gloss sprays. Repeatedly. After the spray was dry, I attached the tissue paper image with gel medium and colored the face with Distress Crayons by Tim Holtz. The word is by my friend Lizzy and the red circle is from Dina´s collage collective book.

For this tag I was simply dabbing residue paint thru a stencil. Both paints by Dina. Then I sprayed the gorgeous lemon gloss spray on top. Let that layer dry and added the fussy cut circles from Dina´s collage collective book. Then some washi, the handmade word and some journaling.

I really like how these tags turned out. I might keep them as they are and even frame them OR I´ll add them to a journal page later. Time will tell.

I´m hoping the next weeks will be better, weather wise, because I am on vacation. Ha! So funny, doing a vacation without going anywhere special. Well, strange times require unusual measures. So no vacay.. I didn´t have one last summer due to my first knee surgery and now the second knee and covid19. I sure hope next year will be better (fingers crossed). I so, so, so miss the sand and the sea. What about you? Any plans?

Wishing you a nice day and weekend!!

Beauty „tag“

Hello everyone and happy Tuesday! Today I´m again sharing another „tag“ from my play time with Dina Wakley´s gloss sprays.

For this one I´ve used all kinds of residue pieces I had left over from previous play. The background has a layer of residue paint on it, on top of that there is a layer of Lindy´s spray ink.

Then, on top of that is a piece of Dylusions Creative Journal packaging paper that I applied some night gloss spray onto. There is also some magenta (does not show in the picture, sorry) gloss spray pressed onto the paper from a stencil. That was residue that I just could not wipe away.

Beneath the Dylusions paper there is stamping made with grey StazOn (stamp by Tim Holtz – Tiny Text). And on top of that paper, there is a cluster of Collage collective paper strips and a piece of used, dry, color covered baby wipe. All attached together with a tiny attacher. Then a hand written (thanks Lizzy!) sentiment and a few buttons.

I´m loving these „tags“! Creating them is almost meditative for me and I don´t think much when making them. Just putting stuff on paper :). So much fun!

Happy crafting,

Art moves AJ page

Hello and happy Saturday!!! Today I´m sharing another art journal page with you, this time from my black journal. This is my first take on a kraft page. Turned out quite fun with gloss sprays.

I wanted to see how the gloss sprays show on a kraft paper background and bright colours show really well. I love the resist surface they create! And the slight shine!

I just added spray splots and let them run on the page and react with each other. After that layer was dry, I sprayed midnight thru a stencil of mine (see both positive and negative image on the page).

Next I added some Tim Holtz Tiny Text stamp sentiments and misted and pasted (modeling paste thru a stencil of mine) baby wipe circles. I love the texture they create!

For finishing touches I added some chipboard numbers in same colours as on the background and then wrote the quote with a white signo uni-ball pen. Simple and easy, still quite a few layers but also some white space left still.

And now the most important question: Have you played with Dina´s gloss sprays yet? I´ve played just a little and I love them. So much fun! Totally love the glossy effect they create and the fact that there is no shimmer or shine to them. I do love shimmer sprays too, but it´s nice using ones without for a change :).

Hope your weekend is great!! Happy crafting,

Looking back AJ page

Hello and happy Friday!! This also means some vacation time for me! Yay!!! I am again stopping by to make another art journal share today. This time it´s another face experiment. This one is very soft compared to the ones I have been sharing recently. I don´t know why she turned out like that, but really like the result. I always start with an idea and then it just starts to live it´s own life and turns into totally something else than I planned.

The starting point for this face was a Tim Holtz stamp set called Tiny Text. I simply applied grey StazOn onto the stamps, while they were still all attached to the packaging and stamped the words into my journal. I wanted to paint a face on top of stamped sentiments. So I did.

I think it was the words that let me to this softer look. I grabbed the gloss sprays and sprayed magenta, lemon, cheddar, white and fuchsia tones around the stamped are. Then I drew the face.

I colored the hair with Scribble Sticks (also by Dina) and wrote the quote. The eyes, lips and the blue splatters are done with Scribble Sticks too. All in all this was a really simple page to do. But I really like the look of it.

Now that it´s summer holiday time – what are you planning on doing? We are not going to fly anywhere, even though flights to some countries are already possible. Just playing safe and not stepping into an airplane. On the other hand, we miss the sea..so there is a certain conflict there. We´ll probably just end up spending the vacation at home in the end. Rather play safe than be sorry..

Have a great weekend, lovelies!

2nd batch of mixed media „tags“

Hello and happy 1st of July!!! Can you believe it´s already July!? June sure didn´t feel like June this year – we had rain, rain, rain and some more rain. Then it was all the time chilly and grey. Very much not June-like. So here´s to hoping that July will be a bit better. I miss the sunshine and sitting outside and just breathing in the summer vibes.

The weather is not good for hanging around outside in the garden, but it´s good for being creative! So I have been doing mixed media stuff. Lot´s, actually.

These tags are inspired by one of Dina Wakley´s Facebook lives. I had so much fun first applying gloss sprays, then bits and pieces from her Collage Collective book and then some washi and paper snippets.

These actually aren´t tags, but just wripped off pages form a very small journal. But they will make great additions to art journal pages and/or cards even.

And the gloss sprays! Boy do I like using them! I love the resist effect they create and how they react on top of each other and when mixed. And pulling prints from a spray splat – that sure is so much fun!! I haven´t even tried out what else is possible with this product, but I can say, they really are a great buy. AND the colours are just gorgeous! I really love them! And I don´t get paid for saying that, by the way :-D.

If you haven´t tried them yet and you are into art journaling, mixed media an such, I think you should give at least one or two colours a try :). Just saying!

Have a great day and a fabulous July!
