A BRIEF TUTORIAL:

 

  • I took 2 blank tags and colored them using Craftyscrappers “Grape juice” and “dancing peacock” shimmer sprays and lift excess color using tissue ( here I just dabbed tissue paper on tags at random places)
  • Created texture on the first tag using Stencil “Geometrical patterns” and Craftyscrappers “Sprout” and “Stem” Shimmer paste , Just lay down the stencil on tag and spread generous amount of paste using palette knife ( I must tell you this pastes colors are so gorgeous and beautiful that makes you to fall in love with your project again and again) #MustHaveSupplies
  • For second tag I used another shades of Shimmer paste and those are “Cupcake” and “Blush” using same technique (To see these amazing shimmer paste result, don’t forget to watch the video, It’s already up on our channel)
  • Then I took 2 raw Sea Horse chipboard cut-outs and also covered entire cut-outs using Shimmer paste called “Butter” & Tinted gold” and for another cut-out I used “Jet” Shade.
  • To give the base for these Chipboard cut-outs, I used normal white sewing thread and pasted it on tag, after that I glue down the sea-horse cutout on tag, I follow the same process for both the tags.
  • Finished these tags by distressing the edges of tag using Black ink pad and adding some inspirational sayings…

Mixed Media Scrapbook layout

 

IMG_20180415_214142_981.jpg

 

To create my mixed media scrapbook layout i have used Craftyscrappers,

 

HELLO STAMP SET

ST-FLW-16[hello].jpg

 

And  SIMPLE ALPHABETS stamp set

ST-ALP-01[SIMPLEALPHABETS].jpg

 

Along with “ INSPIRE” stamp set

 

st-mix-16.jpg

 

 

A Brief tutorial:

 

  •  I took 320 GSM watercolor paper and sprayed using Craftyscrappers “Rusty Denim” and “Sweet Sunshine” shimmer sprays randomly, not covering whole page as you can see in final image.
  • Then I took multiple stamps from stamp set called “Hello” and stamped the images using black ink pad.
  • I stamped those swirly images first so that little amount of those stamped images will stay behind the layers which I am going to add further
  • .Next I took round doily and also took 4 circle cutouts of paper, I colored those circles with Craftyscrappers “Rusty denim” and placed behind the actual images forming a composition.
  • After placing I used black color here and there to give little depth.
  • I took white paper and tore down the edges and distress them using black ink pad and brown ink pad, and placed beneath the photo & added sky blue resin frame to give finished look.
  • To put everything together I stamped dotted pattern stamp around the composition, for this I used “INSPIRE” stamp set.Voila!!!
  • Our mixed media scrapbook layout is complete.

CARD #2: Birthday Card
(Background creation technique)

2.jpg

 

A BRIEF TUTORIAL:

  • On a white card panel, I stamped the image using grey ink repeatedly to cover the entire panel.
  • Stamped the image, colored with zig markers and fussy cut it.
  • Heat embossed the sentiment using Versa mark and white embossing powder.
  • I wanted the background to be very subtle, so using a sheet of vellum, I covered the entire panel from the front and tuck the ends of the vellum under the panel (So I need not stick on the front as the adhesive will be seen through vellum)
  • Mounted this panel on a colored card base using foam adhesive.
  • Mounted the image and the sentiment on the vellum.
  • Lastly, added few enamel dots and googly eyes to the chameleon to complete my card.

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)

ed1.jpg

ed2.jpg

 

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.

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.

  • 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“.

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.
