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,

Mixed media „tags“

Hello everyone and happy Sunday! Today I´m stopping by to share a set of „tags“ with you. I call them tags, but they are actually just wripped off pages from a small journal. I have been following Dina Wakley´s Facebook lives throughout the physical distansing period and have gotten addicted to her products :).

And on Friday these beauties arrived!! I had finally given in and ordered myself the gloss sprays!! And a few of Dina´s paints and some other goodies (by Tim Holtz). Thanks, Art From The Heart for the fast delivery!!

And then I started to play – I hadn´t used the sprays before, so there was lots of „spray and learn“ things going on in my studio. And once I got the hang of it, I did a few tags, a few art journal pages and such. Here is the first „tag“ set featuring some of Dina´s products.

I also used a spray ink by Lindy´s on the background (the brown one), but the rest is by Dina, Tim and Dyan. You guys cannot imagine how much fun I had!!!

On this one I just wiped some residue heavy body paint onto the background, then dabbed some residue gloss spray onto it and took a paint comb and did the pattern. Then Lindy´s spray on top and for finishing touches Dina´s washi and bits and pieces from her collage collective book and Dyan´s journal cover slip.

For the second one I did he background again with Lindy´s brown spray. Then I took bits from Collage Collective book and cut them into pieces and created the cluster. The stamping is done using StazOn stamp ink in dark grey and Tim´s stamp set called Tiny Text. I also drew a leaf branch with Scribble Sticks and added a button.

I really like the tags – I am for sure going to incorporate them either into an art journal page or onto a card at some point. We´ll see.

Happy crafting,

February project wrap-up and March unboxing fail – The Wild Hare Kits

Hello lovelies, it is again time for my February The Wild Hare Kits Petite Kit project wrap-up video. This time I am also sharing some background info, on why there will not be a March kit unboxing video from my part tomorrow.

Because of reasons Alison nor I can change, I will not be able to post an unboxing video this month. See, my kit got shipped in time, but something happened on the way here and insted of being shipped to Austria, the kit got shipped to Australia..

So until it arrives from there to me, it will take a few (or more) weeks. I will probably not be able to receive my kit in time for March. But as soon as it arrives, I will make sure to share it with you :). Just not right now. And for scrapping in March, there will also have to be a plan B. So I´ll be scrapping with what is left of my February kit and will be pulling product from my previous leftover kits to that and then creating with those. So sorry for that, but there is nothing we can do to change this at the moment.

And finally, I hope my bad luck regarding shipping is finally over. In fact, I feel it is. Just this once and then it will be all good again :). And as for crafting, I will need to take a little pause from crafting anyhow as I am about to go into surgery to fix my knee (had an accident in January). So wish me luck for that and we´ll be hearing each other very soon!

Happy scrapping,

Just Be You – The Wild Hare Kits

Hello everyone and happy Wednesday!!! Today I´m up with another The Wild Hare Kits February Petite kit project share over at their blog. This layout idea started with the previous layout I posted Tuesday here on my blog.

See, after creating the first page I had half of the ray paper left over and thought it might make for a great second page to be combined into a double page layout in the end. So I went with the idea and this is what I ended up creating:

I used mainly Pink Paislee papers on this layout – both from the February kit as well as from my November kit (the vellum). I also combined bits and bobs from my previous kits to the layout – parts like: Dear Lizzy She´s Magic Feeling Fine paper, Willow die cut shapes by 1Canoe2 and Jen Hadfield stickers, also from my November 2019 kit.

I thought it would be fun to combine yesterday´s layout and this one to a double page layout. One side featuring my older and one side featuring my younger son. I´ve also tucked personal journaling behind both photos – I hope my boys one day will take a better look at all my scrapbooks and then discover these hidden messages to them :).

I´ve again recorded a video for you to watch – I hope you like it!

And finally, here is the double side layout – I love how it turned out!!!

I hope I could inspire you to take a better look at The Wild Hare Kits and scrap a little yourself! Maybe do a double page even? If you do, remember to tag #thewildharekits, so we can come and see what you did :).

Happy scrapping,

The F*ckin´ Badassery Group of f*ckin´ art journalers – Volume 1

Hello there and happy 1st of August!!! My amazingly creative and talented crafty friend Tina Walker is always good for collaborations of all kinds. She has the most amazing ideas for projects and this time, well, we did art journals based on our favorite f-word quotes. So if this is not your „thing“ I suggest you stop reading here…

This is the Volume 1 – there might be more journals coming later :). Here is my first take! Once more, if you find this type of projects/words not suitable, please do not read any further! I however think that creative people tend to use plenty of swear words and it´s been proven that people who swear tend to be rather intelligent…

So this is my first „Fuckery Abounds“ Art Journal project – attention: this one is photo heavy..:

I´ve used my Gelli Plate to create the book page background. They are made of one single page of 12×12 paper (folded to several pages). There are plenty of book binding/folding instrucktions to be found on the internet  (I use this book for inspiration very often).

For decoration I´ve used plenty of Viva Las Vega Stamps rubber stamps – they have plenty that fit the Journal theme perfectly!!! Also I´ve used some eco dyed fabrics for the book covers – loove the look and the feel they create!!! Then there are some Posca pen details added here and there on the pages as well as some Alexandra Renke washi tape combined with a film strip washi. And I´ve used my sewing machine to add some texture to the pages.

The pages themselves are very simple, but in very bold color! I love this color combo at the moment!!!! I wanted to create a bold background for my fave f-word quotes :). And here is a flip-thru of the journal as a video:

Now go to Tina´s blog for her project and also for more links to other participants blogs to see what they created around this theme! I sure had a great time creating mine!!

Have  a great day!
Sanna
