MIXED MEDIA MULTI PAGE ART JOURNAL SPREAD & TAG
By DT Member

blog ender.png

 Today I have a MIXED MEDIA page art journal spread and a tag to inspire you all for the current Craftyscrappers Challenge.

 

(MIXED MEDIA MULTI PAGE ART JOURNAL SPREAD)

A Brief tutorial
(
MIXED MEDIA MULTI PAGE ART JOURNAL SPREAD)

 

  • I took 4 card-stock from Craftyscrappers and tear it from middle just to make hole of different sizes, as you can see in image.
  • I started coloring from bottom page using Craftyscrappers shimmer sprays, for 1st layer I used “Rusty Denim” , For 2nd layer used “Sweet Sunshine”, for 3rd layer I used “Dancing Peacock
  • and for 4th layer I used texture paste and created texture using stencil called “Geometrical patterns” and after it dries completely I colored the page using “Juicy Watermelon“, “Sweet Sunshine”, and “Rusty Denim” from darker shade to lighter shade.
  • In this step I distressed the torn parts using “Greasy Charcoal” chalk paint, this way pages will have depth and I also stamped dotted pattern stamp around the torn area, for this I used “INSPIRE” stamp set, I follow this stamping process for all the 4 pages. (for reference have a look on final page)
  • Distress all the 4 pages using black ink and glue them together but instead of using foam tape, I used chipboard so that it will have dimensional look.
  • I stamped girl image from “Happy HOLI” Stamp set, Colored it using watercolor and fussy cut the image & place it on the page as if that girl is coming from colored layers (That’s what my concept was) To lift up the girl image I used 2 to 3 layers of chipboard behind it.
  • I also spread silver glitter behind the girl image and to the front page I spread just a little amount of “Tinted Gold” shimmer paste using palette knife to add shine and sparkly look,
  • After this I stamped the quote (saying) stamp image from “HOLI” Stamp set, Fussy cut that image and adhere on the page using double sided foam tape.
  • Later on this page added flat back gems randomly to have a elegant look, And Voila!!! our multi-page Art journal spread is complete.

 

 

(MIXED MEDIA TAG)

ed3.jpg

 

A Brief tutorial
(MIXED MEDIA TAG)

  • I took Packaging cardboard and made cut-out of tag of 5 inches by 3 inches and glue down broken brush head on it.
  • Then I paste metal butterfly just to hide broken part of brush and also added sea-shells, art stones and micro beads. (Seed beads, micro beads, art stone works as a filler and also
  • In this step I covered entire tag with gesso and after gesso dries completely.
  • I colored the tag using “Tasty Tortilla” and “Muddy Pool” shimmer sprays.
  • I used gesso again just to add highlight little bit, in this step I took very little amount of gesso on dry brush and apply so that dimensional elements get highlighted.
  • Distress the edges and then added Shimmer paste using pallet knife.
  • Stamped sayings from “INSPIRE” stamp set and finished this tag.

(YOU FILL MY DAYS WITH COLOR CARD)

ed1.jpg

 

A Brief tutorial
(YOU FILL MY DAYS WITH COLOR CARD)

 

  • I started with stamping some cute pichkari images from the Celebrate Holi Stamp set in Jet black Archival ink. 
  • Colored these images using different Shimmer Sprays Sour eggplant, Ocean waves, Bitter lemon, Sweet pumpkin and one DI- candied apple and one Memento dye ink- Dandelion using water. Fussy cut them.
  • On a stitched textured white CS, at the top I carefully stamped the Splash image three times overlapping them from the Celebration Holi stamp set using Different DI and slightly spritzed it with water bottle. Love the faded dripping colorful result. Then once again I stamped those splashes using same DI for the good impact result.
  • Die cut a scalloped circle out of black CS and black foam sheet. 
  • In the center I created my own sentiment using same stamp set again, this stamp set included so many cute text sentiments!
  • You Fill My Days With in jet black Archival ink and Colors in using different DI.
  • Now placed all the elements to create my colorful festive scene with fun using foam dots.
  • In the end, placed this panel on a colorful Plaid PP and adhered it on a white CS. And slightly applied some tinted gold SHIMMER PASTE for glittery impact with my brush for little sparkle.

 

 

GLTTER-ED AND COLORFUL SWEET WISHES CARD

ed2.jpg

 

No festival can complete without sweets so here is a colorful background card with sweet Gunjiyas and sparkly splashes!
A Brief tutorial
(GLTTER-ED AND COLORFUL SWEET WISHES CARD)
  • On a piece of Craftyscrappers premium white cardstock,  I placed the Splash stencil and applied Tinted Gold Shimmer Paste through it.
  • Blended different DI-Candied apple, carved pumpkin, lucky clover, twisted citrus, fossilized amber, wilted violet, seedless preserves, salty ocean and mermaid lagoon to create a colorful background.
  • Stamped the image of thali with gunjiyas using Jet black Archival ink from the stamp set, “Celebrate Holi“.
  • I colored the thali using Creamy Cantalope Shimmer paint(Pearl Finish) and colored the sweet image using DI- fossilized amber and carved pumpkin.

STRETCHING THE STAMPS IN A CREATIVE WAY : A CARD & TAGS
By DT Member
blog ender.png

 

 Today I have a fun and colorful project to inspire you all for the current Craftyscrappers Challenge.

I have tried stretching my stamps in a very extraordinary way.The stamp set was designed for Holi festival but now as the festival is over I was confused how to make something out of it and that’s where this technique of stretching the stamps clicked to me.

 

STRETCHING THE STAMPS IN A CREATIVE WAY : A CARD

ed1.jpg

ed2.jpg

ed3.jpg

 

 

A Brief tutorial

 

  • I have used the triangle geometric shape in the stamp set,”Celebrate Holi”  which was actually representing gulal(Holi Powdered color) on the stamp set to create my background first with Distress oxide inks in various colors.
  • After that I have used You die and made a diecut on the finished background.
  • Took that diecut out and replaced it with same white cardstock diecuts thrice,
  • lastly topped the original distress oxide inked  diecut.
  • The sentiment is from same stamp set, “Celebrate Holi“.
  • stamped with Black Archival ink.
  • Lastly attached Cup sequins to adorn the card.

UMA IIYER-FEATURED ARTIST2.jpg

Lets hear from Uma before we get on with her inspirations.

” Hello Iam.. Uma, currently working as a software engineer with a great passion towards crafting. I love anything handmade/re-purposed as there is a lot of care that has gone into the creation and I feel handmade and personalized cards are one of the sure-shot ways to getting g the recipient feel good!
I love Craftyscrappers stamps (I have a huge stash)
and they are of great quality, made in India
(I love to support local indigenous brands).

Two things that stand out for me from Craftyscrappers are
1: Their designing opportunities are there for anyone who has an idea in mind.
Even if you cannot finish it using the software, the team is sweet enough to get it converted by a vector artist. This is a great when you need some personalized stamps and something extra special which cater to your needs.

2: The support I get from the team is above par. They started with stamps and now into a lot of products like stencils, shimmer pastes, shimmer sprays, chalk paints,fun-foils etc. Even with so much going on, they take time to respond to queries,
listen to feedback and constantly look out for improvement.

By heartfelt wishes to the team.
Hope they scale great heights! “
