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,

Perspective AJ page

Hello and happy Thursday!! Today I´m again stopping by to share another peek into my art journal. This one resulted from random play again. I was just adding colours until everything felt right and then went from there.

I had originally pressed a wet stencil onto the background (can you see the light stencil pattern peeking thru here and there? Next I added more spray ink to the right edge and let the ink move freely and created droplets. When it was dry, I took a The Crafter´s Workshop stencil and applied Dina Wakley´s turquoise paint thru it onto the page. I love the orange with the turquoise! Such a fresh combo!!

Then I felt like adding black. That made the rest of the colours pop! I loved the look, so I didn´t want to overdo it. Therefore the Posca Pen drawn faces. they are light and don´t compete with the rest. I love drawing this type of faces so much! Learned to love it at Louise Nelson´s class in Norway two years ago :).

Then I found a quote that I liked and wrote that down with a white signo uni-ball pen. I´ve ruined quite a few (was not patient enought with wet paint – I wil never learn!), but got myself replacements, so everything is fine now :).

For the hair parts I used a grey Distress Crayon by Tim Holtz/Ranger. Rest is Posca pens. I think I am going to put this one in a frame at some point.

Have a gorgeous day everyone!!

Real life AJ page

Hello everyone and happy Wednesday!! Today I´m stopping by to share another peek into my art journal. This page started off with the blue background which I randomly applied (totally without any plan) onto the empty page with a thick paint brush.

Then I went away and came back to the page the next day. And when I looked at the blue „splat“, I could see a face in it. So I painted the eyebrows and eyes as wella as the hair and the mouth, where they seemed to emerge on their own in the blue colour. She turned out like this, because of the given tone differences on the background. And her facial impression is a very surprised/wondering one.

I wanted to concentrate on her and do very little additionally to the page. Thus, only added some spray ink thru a stencil as well as some heavy body paint thru another stencil (from my stencil line). I had a few random circles on my table, I they matched, therefore I added them.

The quote fits her facial expression so well. This quote had me thinking.. Why is it, that today, no matter where you turn to, you are quickly surrounded by fake people. Where did all the sincere people suddenly disappear to?

I´ll just leave that thought there and hope your day is a wonderful one!
