Stronger Than You Know

Morning, sharing another project made for the Create and Craft Stamps by Me show, shown on Tuesday 1st Nov. If you missed the show, you can catch up online on the Create and Craft website, here.

 

 

Step by Step

1. Took a piece of white tissue paper, slightly larger than the 5×7″ canvas board, scrumpled up the tissue paper. Applied a coat of matte Mod Podge to the canvas and stuck down the tissue paper. Applied a coat of matte Mod Podge over the entire canvas.

2. Once the Mod Podge was dry, used a Creative Expressions mini stencil and DecoArt white modelling paste to create additional texture to the background.

3. Once the modelling paste was dry, used Faber Castell Gelatos, in orange, yellow and red shades, to cover the entire canvas. Sealed the FC Gelatos using DecoArt Matte Medium and a sponge.

4. Once the Matte Medium was completely dry, used DecoArt Metallic Lustre Wax to highlight the texture in the background.

5. Using white card stock, stamped the butterflies, from the Stamps By Me Lamination Butterfly stamp set, with Distress inks and black Generation INX.

6. Stamped the foliage, from the Stamps By Me Lamination Foliage stamp set, onto white card stock using Memento inks, in various shades of green, and black Generation INX.

7. Cut out the stamped images and text from the Mixed Up magazine ‘Inspiring Words’ printable, October 2016 issue.

8. Adhered the butterflies using Pinflair 3D glue gel and embellished with Glossy Accents and crystal glitter.

9. Adhered the text using DecoArt Matte Medium. Once the Matte a medium was dry, used a Faber Castell Pitt pen around the edge of the text.

10. Adhered some paper flowers and the foliage using Pinflair 3D glue gel.

Afternoon, hope you’re enjoying the weekend.

Sharing an art journal page today, using Dylusion paints and stamps.

Step by Step

The initial background is a clean up background from creating other journal pages with Dylusions paints. You can see the technique explained by Dyan Reaveley here over on Ranger Ink’s YouTube video. I believe the colours in the background are Dylusions – Crushed Grape, After Midnight and Squeezed Orange. 

I created the shape of the frame, using the Dylusions Journal Block. A black Derwent Graphik Paint Liner pen was used to draw the doodles and I’ve add some colour to the doodles using white, purple and orange Derwent Graphik Paint Liner pens

Stamped the character from Dylusions Curious Corrin stamp set with black Memento ink, onto white card stock, and coloured with Copic markers.

Stamped the text from a clear Dylusions stamp set using black Archival ink onto white card stock.

Adhered the text and character to the page using DecoArt Matte Medium.

Decided at this point the page didn’t feel right, so added the flowers and leaves from a couple of Dylusions clear stamp sets using black Archival ink. The leaves are coloured with fluid acrylic inks and the flowers were coloured with Faber Castell Pitt pens.
