Mood Board Inspiration

Hi Everyone,

Today I have my take on this months mood/sketch board. I personally prefer mood boards to kick start a project as they allow more artistic freedom or interpretation.

This month for example you can be influenced by the graphics, the colours, the theme "down time" the sketch or all combined.

I chose the rainbow colours to do my layout.

I started with a KinderKreations stencil and some TCW Light and Fluffy 
I really love how fast this medium dries and its texture.

I got a collection of Distress Oxides reinkers and put a little of each colour along the centre line and then added water and moved the page backwards and forwards to let them drip.
I then just flicked some of each colour onto their corresponding sections.
I found some alcohol ink on Yupo paper butterflies I had cut out from a previous session and they were colourful and worked on the layout.

I finished of with some neutral flowers and some scraps I had cut into circles and added to the background. I also used some enamel dots .

Thanks for looking and I hope to see your projects inspired by this months mood board.

Art Journal Magic.... Let's Paint, Cut and Paste.

Howdy Bloggers , Lisa here with a Friday Mixed Media update.
I've been away retreating at a Mixed Media event, which explains my absence last week.
Connecting to creatives in a physical sense,catching up with the Scrapping Clearly crew.
Oh, chilling, relaxing and watching Peg work her magic with Inks...ahhhhh, so good.

Today I am sharing a few pieces I created using images from a Victoria Frances Calendar.
(I really don't know how one could toss a calendar like this after the yr was up)
Thanks Jason for sacrificing your books to the masses. I love these beautiful dramatic images and laying one down onto your pages really makes for producing some seriously eye popping incredible pages quickly.

I came home from the retreat and reworked this image onto a canvas board, 
adding depth and interest by adding extra layers with the tree stencil.

Basic Product List 

Thanks for dropping by the Scrapping Clearly blog, 
Ill be back next week with a new mixed media update.

Beauty of a good heart with Emma Zappone

Hi SC friends, 
Today I’m sharing a more ‘pretty’ layout with you all. 

How gorgeous is that base sheet!! 
So this paper is part of the paper arts range, Paper Beauty 1

Under my layers I then played with some oxide ink in abandoned coral and Dylusions acrylic paint in rose quartz
I flicked only a little oxide ink in salty ocean around to bring out the blue in my image. 

Then I built my layers, firstly using some Tim Holtz tissue paper  hich I scrunched, and I layered a couple of the Heidi Swapp colour magic notes which I coloured with the same paints and inks I used on my base. 
You can see how in my video 😊 

I tucked in some dyed pieces of fabric to add a textured feel and it also complimented the colours in the image. The WRMK frame I embossed by using a stamp and then emboss powder  I loved that this gave another texture but only subtle. 

In a few places I also added a few Tim Holtz rubons amongst my stamping. 
Then I placed a few embellishments, one being this Tim Holtz quote bands this also became my title. 
Finally I added just a small handful of enamel shapes in soft pink. 

So there is my ‘pretty’ layout. 
I hope you enjoy my video and the awesome music my gorgeous boy made for it. 

I’ll catch you all again soon.

Travelers Notebook - With Karyn Schultz!

Hi Scrapping Clearly Lovelies,

It's Karyn here,

Today I have some pages in my Travelers Notebook to share with you made using the Fancy Pants Designs "Hello Sunshine" Collection available in the Scrapping Clearly Store.

I added by adding some offcuts of paper from the Fancy Pants Designs "Hello Sunshine" Collection kit. This kit contains 2 each of 6 designs of 12x12 double sided patterned paper, an Ephemera pack and a Tags and Labels pack - and it is such fun and bright colours and pattern. 

Next I painted a "Pineapple crown" on my page with Prima Watercolor confections.

I added some ephemera and tags from the kit. I stamped the date on a Heidi Swapp foil label, then I added some stamped phases from the American Crafts Memory Planner clear stamp set.  

This next page uses more papers and ephemera from the Fancy Pants Designs "Hello Sunshine" Collection kit. I stamped the date on a Heidi Swapp foil label, then I added a repeated stamped phase from the American Crafts Memory Planner clear stamp set, and some handwritten journalling.  

Isn't this flamingo adorable!  

Thanks so much for stopping by

June Challenge Inspiration from Leonie Neal-Dawson

Hello Scrapping Clearly followers, Leonie with you today.
Today I'm sharing my take on the June combined challenge.
Visit our Facebook group for details on how to enter, there is a shop voucher to be won.
Take a look at those cute painty fingers and rainbow colours (big hive five to that)!

I started following the sketch by rotating it anticlockwise and thats where I kind of veered off on my own creative tangent!  I did however stick with the luscious rainbow of colour with some added black and the photo's were all about some down time and relaxing with friends so I've drawn on those images from the mood board as well.

I used Dina Wakley Heavy Body Acrylic Paint to create my rainbow.  A small dob of paint and I used an old credit card to draw the paint across the page. 

The large flowers were stamped with the Floral Stamp from the Prima Bloom Collection.
I painted black Dina Wakley paint directly on to the image and then stamped on the page. 
I love the intense image that stamping with paint gives. It doesn't always turn out perfect but it certainly makes a bold statement. 
There is also some light stamping and texture paste on the background. 

I kept my embellishment to a minimum - some glittery chipboard, a Charms Creation Heart and those lovely Heidi Swapp acetate words.  To finish off I added a doodled boarded with a Fude Ball pen and some black splats

Thanks for stopping by, we'd love you to join us in our June challenge.
Visit our Facebook Share and Inspire page for the details.
Cheers from Leonie Neal-Dawson.

Love you to the Moon

Hi there Scrapping Clearly friends,
Lisa here today to share a scrapbook layout.
I started my layout with some Dylusions paint in Fresh Lime on a sheet of Bazzill Marshmallow cardstock. Now I have well loved this paint and what remained in the pot was nearly all dried. I decided to use it up while I could still get it out of the pot. The lovely thick texture was perfect for creating some ridges and interest in the background of my page.

I then added some extra colour with Dylusions Spray Paint in Calypso Teal. I have added some text stamping with Ranger Archival Ink in black all around the edge of the page and through the centre. I also swiped the ink across the textured paint to pick up the patterns I created earlier.

 I created layers around my photo with Heidi Swapp Frames and Tags. I also used some Crate Paper Good Vibes papers in black and white together with black machine stitching. I added some chipboard stickers and cut aparts from the Pink Fresh Escape the Ordinary Collection.

I coloured some Heidi Swapp Acrylic Stars with a black posca pen to match my page and scattered them across the layout.

I added my title with grey chipboard letters from the Pink Fresh Boys Fort range and added some dymo tape lettering to finish.

Hope you have found some time to get crafty this Queen's Birthday Long Weekend.

Happy scrapping
