A Whale Art Journal and Video by Priss

Image
Hello friends!!! Priss here with another Art Journal Page. This time is for my landscape Journal (I made this Journal with watercolour paper sized as A5) and I used this lovely Whale of the set Whale Wishes . First, I tore a piece of copy paper to simulate my waterline, and then I stamped some of my favourite stamps from set Mixed Media Marks   I used Distress Oxide inks to colour the water and the sky. And then, with a  stencil of circles of any size, I made some ghost marks with water here and there. I made some marks  with the same stencil and some  inks, that go up from the sea bottom to the sky, like strange bubbles in dark blue and purple. Also, I made other stencil marks all over the page. I stamped some bubbles from the set and used white Embossing Powder, here and there.  I also stamped with permanent inks more Mixed Media Marks and I made some splatters with darker inks all over the page. To finish my background, I created a frame with the seam stamp that came in

Art Journal Page Inky Friends

  Hi, I'm Vero (@ Vero.kt) and I welcome you to today's inspiration. How's everybody ? I've been playing with     Mixed media marks   ,   I nky Friends   ,    Grungy Stuff   ,  Pencil marks # 2 ,   and  Carved Collection #1   to create a  page in my little art journal. I hope you like it. I started by cutting watercolor paper into a square, 4x4 inch format, adding color with pigments. To speed up the drying process, help me with a dryer.  To add texture, use multiple stamps with inks in shades similar to the background. With permanent black ink, stamp stitch texture I choose one of the stamps from the  Inky Friends  set, stamp it, color it with watercolor pencils, then cut. To give the butterfly dimension, trim the top wings to overlap. One of the parts that I enjoy the most is the composition, I have to admit that it is usually the part that takes me the most. Now I leave you some photos with details of the project.I hope you like it as much as I do when making them. H

Photo Album with Mixed Media Marks by Farida

Hello everybody, Farida here I have so many photographs that I wish to store properly. So I thought it's time to create a couple of albums for them. First I wanted to have an album for all the pictures we took during skating/long-boarding. We used to go a lot some years ago, went to contests or even organised own contests in our city. So for this picture I wanted something really "cool".  Inspired by sprayed street art I thought of using two bold colours and stamp just in black. For this album I went with a template by Jen of Eve's .  At first you need to print out the template and cut out all the pieces.I grabbed my Mixed Media Marks Stamp Set and a black Ink to just stamp randomly around the edges.  The pieces don't look that spectacular for now. So for the next step I glued the pages and little elements together so it became a mini album.  Now you can see a transition, can't you? It's now looking really crowded on the pages. Because I want to

Butterfly Collection by Angie Coomber

 Hello arty friends,  How are you? Summer seems to have finally arrived in this part of the world so I thought I'd get the butterfly stamps out. I stamped a selection on watercolour paper, coloured them in with watercolour paints, which are my current obsession. I did some shading using pencils, then cut them out. Next I chose a piece of ledger paper. I added some background stamping and black splatter to give the page a vintage feel. I also mounted the ledger paper on a piece of grungy scrapbook paper to make it pop a little bit more. I stuck the butterflies onto the ledger paper and dabbed on some stickles. Then I added some black & gold mark making and finally the number and word stickers. Have a lovely weekend! Hugs from Angie x Stamps used: Inky friends Old book page    

The Dove of Peace Card by Dot Leathbridge

 Hi everyone, welcome to the Rubber Dance blog. Today my card uses a dove from the 'A Little Birdie' stamp set. It's in stark contrast to the weather outside at the moment! We have hail, gail force winds and lots of rain. Nature is trying to throw everything at us at the moment lol. So naturally my mind went to something a little calmer. The circle is made using distress inks on a gel plate, using colours from our Mood Board this month. The combination of yellows and browns are one that works so  beautifully together. Here are a couple of close ups for you. The flowers and leaves from Loose Florals #1 are used to create a pretty border around the circle. The little circles are from Whale Wishes! As always, the Rubber Dance stamp sets always have so many extra little elements that can be used in many ways. They've been coloured with H2O's for a little shimmer. Those that know me well will be surprised that I've added some shimmer lol. The bird is from the A Litt

Art Journal with Video by Josi Tomàs

  Hello everyone!! Josi Tomàs here today. Do you remember my 9th April post? I made a stencil with a branch from Pencil Marks 2 . Today I'm going to use it to make an Art Journal page. Will you join me? I leave you below the step by step and video for to do it together... _______________________________________________________________ STEP BY STEP 1. Stick a sheet of paper on a cardboard and apply clear gesso. Dry it well. 2. Stick on the "stencil" which i made in a 9th April post (Art Journal Page "Create Art")... see the post here 3. Apply Distress Oxide Ink directly from the pad onto the page (I choose three colours). Unify the colours with the help of a baby wipe (you can put a little spray of water to make it easier). 4. Apply spray of water, leave to react for a minute and dry well (if your inks are not Distress Oxide, you don't have to do this step). 5. Apply different pigments of similar colours (each colour with each similar pigment). I do
