Adventure

I thought I would show you my process for last weekends Cyber Crop Challenge 2.  I created Sketch 2 with the photo in mind and love the softness of all the Heidi Swapp papers melded together.


I chose the Heidi Swapp Emerson LanePineapple Crush & Artwalk papers as well as the Heidi Swapp Oh What Fun Vellum sheets. I have layered my photo on a sheet of the vellum paper and then backed that with a piece of the Pineapple Crush paper. I cut the Emerson Lane paper to 9.5"x9" and used my Heidi Swapp edge distresser to distress the edges.


Once the main paper was adhered to the page I sewed a double border around the outside of that paper and a double stitched line on the inside. I have then placed HS 'fresh start' washi tape  where the banners were going to go to help them pop as I would be using the same paper as the background. I did use a little Art Walk and Pineapple crush too to make some of the rectangles for the banner. I have used three lots of bakers twine to run across the page and also added some Heidi Swapp acetate tags. 



I cut some leaves from my Silhouette and sprayed them with the Minc Reactive mist. Once dry I ran them through the Minc using Iridescent Lime foil. I also cut out some flowers in vellum and coated them in the mist. Vellum curls so after it was dry I had to flatten them out and I also put them between two sheets of baking paper before putting them in the Minc lamination folder as there was mist on the back - I coloured these with the Gold foil.
  
 


 After all embellishments were layered on the page I chose a Heidi Swapp wooden word 'Adventure' and typed my journalling on card before adhering it with glue


I hope this weekend you have a lot more creating planned to fill your albums full of memories.

Welcome to Friday!


Hi all, Michelle here I am back sharing my 
take on one of the Heidi Swapp Cyber crop Sketches. 


And here is my take: 
"Bloom"



This is in my Dylusions Black Journal and the page background was, what I call, a "smash" page where I just "smash" my leftover paint colour on to a page so as not to waste the paint and so I do not have to start with a blank page when next I create!
So all that was left to do was throw little bits and pieces at it till it felt right!

 The papers are from Heidi Swapp's Honey & Spice range, they all coordinate so well together creating this was easy peasy! I have a thing for sewing on my page ATM so that was where I started my layering.


I coloured the Heidi Swapp Die Cut papers...that came up a treat by the way, while wet, I pressed it down to create a stamped like image of the gorgeous pattern randomly on the background. I then dried it and attached some of it to the background around the spot I wanted the focal image to be.


Then it was just a matter of layering all my little bits, adding more of that Die cut paper in a different design and coloured with paint (the pack contains 6 different designs and they are all divine!)
And the page was pretty much done all it needed was a title and for that I used Mini Light box Alphabet stickers .

Products  Used: 

Dylusions Black Journal
Heidi Swapp Die Cut papers.
Heidi Swapp's Honey & Spice range
Mini Light box Alphabet stickers .

I hope everyone enjoyed the Crop, I have to say you all made some amazing pages during the weekend!
Till next week, keep safe y'all!

I've added doodling around the edge of the page using a Fude ball pen
 
 
I also addd stamping to my page using the Carabelle Studio Mini Textures stamp set and Scribbles in my Journal stamp set - but I forgot to photograph lol.

Here is my finished page.

Hey Hey it's Friday!

Hi Everyone, are we all ready for the Cyber Crop tomorrow??? 
Very exciting and busy behind the scenes as Kylie and the team prepare a day of inspiring arty fun.
So I am here with a quick art journal share in my Dina Wakley 6x6 journal.
So here it is: 

"Let Art Get You Through The Dark"


The background was a painted striped number that I really disliked so left for ages! So I needed to revisit it and make it presentable.
The stripes were Dina Wakley acrylic paint in Sky, Cheddar, Blushing and Lemon.
I used lots of left over bits of book Paper and Scrap FX Ricepapers including my "Sketchings 1" and "Sewing" attached to the page using Gel Medium under and on top.
This made the page quite busy and chaotic.....not ideal!


So when the page becomes too much I needed to push it back....calm the chaos so to speak. So first I added a few scrapes of White Acrylic paint with a palette knife. That did not do enough so it was time for the big guns....Night Acrylic Paint and Dina Wakleys Stencil "Halves". I painted almost the entire page with night then placed the stencil over the top and rubbed the paint away through the stencil revealing the background through the halved circles.


After that was dry it seemed a little better and it was time to add a focal image.
I reached for Scrap FX Graffiti Peeps ricepaper sheet, added one of the figures to the page using the Gel Medium and the page was just about done.


All that was left to do was some scribble writing using a Posca paint pen in Black and white, and a quote/ title. I thought this quote was appropriate during these trying times so stamped the letters with an old alpha stamp set. So then I called the page done....it was not going to get any better anyway LOL! 

Products Used:

Dina Wakley acrylic paint: White, Night, Sky, Cheddar, Blushing and Lemon.
Scrap FX Rice paper designs:"Sketchings 1" & "Sewing"
Old Book Paper

And that my friends is me for today, I will be back tomorrow to join in the fun....see you then!

July Moodboard Art Journalling - With Karyn Schultz!

Hi Scrapping Clearly Lovelies!

It's Karyn here and today I have an art journal page that I created using lots of fun products available at Scrapping Clearly!
 
I'm playing along with the July moodboard challenge. We would love for you to join in with this challenge and be in the running to win a Scrapping Clearly store voucher. You have until July 31 and you need to upload your challenge here.


This page is created in my Black Square Dylusions Journal. I have had this journal for a few years but hesitant to use it because the black is quite overwhelming. I'm so glad i took the plunge as I love it now :)

I also gathered a heap of supplies that fit in with the moodboard.
 
  
I started by creating a watercolour background using Prima Watercolor Confections - Classics (white and grey).
 

  
Next I added some texture using a variety of stencils and using Platinum modelling paste, Faber Castell Whipped Spackle, and Bo Bunny Silver glitter paste. Then I doodled around the edge of the page using a white Uniball Signo broad pigment ink pen.
 
  
Here is my finished page. I found this image on Pinterest and printed it out on photo paper.
 
  
I added gauze, diecuts and Tim Holtz chit chat word stickers.
 

 I love this image - isn't she adorable!
 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
