More April Moodboard Art Journalling - With Karyn Schultz!

Hi Scrapping Clearly Lovelies!!

It's Karyn here, and today I have an art journal page to share with you made using lots of goodies available in the Scrapping Clearly Store.


I'm also playing along with the April Moodboard Challenge. We would love for you to join the challenge and be in the running to win a Scrapping Clearly voucher - you have until April 30 and you enter by uploading your photo to the album in the facebook group here.


I'm using a Small Dylusions journal. I added some background colour using Prima Watercolor Confections and a painting with plastic technique. Then I added some stencilling using TCW black modelling paste. Next I added some background stamping.



I stamped some Dina Wakley Good Idea stamps onto watercolour paper using black Archival ink then painted them with Prima Watercolor Confections. These flowers and leaves were fussy cut and added to the page. 
 

I added Tim Holtz small talk stickers and I drew around the edge of the page with a Fude Ball pen.

'Eat, sleep, be rad, ..repeat'

Hi everyone! It's Amy here, with another share for April. I have here a simple and flat page for those scrappers out there that love creating with flat pages - this will be the project for you.

I have captured this photo of a very tired Samuel with our little puppy "Luigi" on his back.


For this page, I have used various patterned papers from the store. With patterned papers, I like to mix my ranges up from time to time. I have used: Simple Stories 'Carpe Diem' range; and Cocoa Vanilla Studio 'Boys Rule'


Apart from applying the patterned papers on to the cardstock, I trimmed down the strips of words to produce the title - this is from the Cocoa Vanilla Studio 'Boys Rule' 'Boy Stuff' sheet. I hand-punched a star and circle with this double-sided paper. 


Behind the photo, if you look closely here, you will see that I have used Simple Stories and Cocoa Vanilla Studio. The black tag is from my stash and then I added the perfectly cheeky Charms Creations Emojii.


Finally, I stamped my page with bubble wrap using Stazon Ink in 'Jet Black' randomly over the page and then splattered the page with ColourBlast Colour Spray in 'Roadbase'. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Ciao, Amy

Look for the Magic - with Emma.

Hi beautiful people!
Today I share another take on the mood board, this time really embracing the Green.
First though lets refresh our minds on the glorious board.


Here is how it turned out (I added a touch of Gold too)…..


So to start this project, oh I have a little video process for this page also, so please check it out, I applied Clear Gesso first, then with Modelling paste through a Tim Holtz stencil I created texture highlights.
Then once dry I added a Distress Oxide Re inker dotted, water sprayed and smooshed over the background. Once this was dry I used a Gold crackle texture paste through the same stencil as the beginning. Adding small highlights and pops of colour.


Behind my image I trimmed and layered a Heidi Swapp Kraft tag which I distressed and inked. In these layers I also cut Oxide inked this time with Cracked Pistachio and stamped Heidi Swapp die cut sheets.


Then the magic happened! I played with the very awesome Tim Holtz Transparent acetate wings! Oh WOW!!!


Stunning right!
I trailed this up my page complimenting the photo image.

My title went on and some quotes from Tim Holtz Small talk stickers completed my look.


I really hope you get inspired to create with this months mood board if you haven't already.

Please check out my video for this page and leave some love.


                       

I'll see you all again next week.
Till then Em xx

...and you scare people


Because I am loving the colours of the moodboard this month I have decided to do a large index card. I started doing these a couple of years ago with Leanne Jago at a retreat we were at in Melbourne - amazing artist - if you get a chance look her up her work is amazing and very inspirational. We chose a list of 100 words to use as prompts – I am just a tad behind but in keeping with the moodboard theme colours and my love of making a mess here it is in all its glory 


I used gesso to prime the card before I started then everything goes a little hazy. You see I tend to pre-prep pages and cards - so it eludes me if I have used Dylusions spray inks or Ken Oliver colourburst concentrated powders - whichever it was they worked a treat. I let it pool naturally and set it aside to dry. Tick tock tick tock.… if you are in a hurry you can always use your heat gun - but I find this moves those beautiful little pools of intensified colour.




I had a pre cut filigree piece that I cut in half and sprayed one half with Dylusions vibrant turquoise and the other half was painted black. I also used an ALLs pencil around the outer border. 


From the Filigree cut out that I layered on top of each other I ran some Dina Wakley media tape and used a set of eyes from the Paula MacMillan Perich pack that I secured off the lovely Lisa Oxley at one of the Retreats we frequent. I then set up my Tim Holtz idealogoy cling stamps on a block and stamped out the quote - I am loving the versatility of these stamps.




I then used the Alls pencil and went over the alpha to give it a little more definition. At the same time I used a little water around the outer border to help blend the border into the washed look of the inks. 


 I completed the page by adding some cotton under a metal embellishment and the rest of the quote was typed and added before adding a  little more ALLs pencil to help blend it in to the work.


The completed work all finished – and I am loving this quote

and you
you scare people
because you are whole all by yourself. 


have fun this weekend with the April moodboard & get messy

Good Idea Art Journalling - With Karyn Schultz!

Hi Scrapping Clearly Lovelies!!

It's Karyn here, and today I have 2 art journal pages to share with you made using lots of goodies available in the Scrapping Clearly Store.


I've used my Dina Wakely 8x10 media art journal. When I first got this journal I was almost overwhelmed with the different types of media pages in it (calico and burlap/hessian mainly) so couldnt start using it. But now I have started I love the different options and the different look they give to each page.

For the LHS (a calico page) I've started by applying some Dina Wakley paints (Magenta, Sky, lime, and  black and lemon) to the page using a palette knife. Then I added some torn DWM washi and stamping.

I stamped some Dina Wakley Good Idea stamps onto watercolour paper using black Archival ink then painted them with Prima Watercolor Confections.

I then fussy-cut the flowers ready to use on my pages.


Here are some close-ups of my finished page. I also added some splatters of black paint and Tim Holtz small talk stickers. 
 


I used similar colours and patterns for the RHS page (cotton rag watercolour paper).  


I started the page by applying some Dina Wakley paints (Magenta, Sky, lime, and  black and lemon) all over the page using a palette knife. Then I added some torn DWM washi background stamping and some stamping using the Dina Wakley Good Idea stamps direct to the page. I then painted the flowers with Prima Watercolor Confections


Lastly I added some Tim Holtz small talk stickers, I drew around the edge of the page with a Fude Ball pen and I added some of the fussy cut flowers.
