Hellgnome's Death Digis Great Space Adventure Art Journal

Hello all

I have a new mixed media art journal layout to share with you. I have gone for a space theme so three guess which Sci Fi movie this is a nod too.

The background is painted black first and then i blended in blue tones. Then i added a bit of magenta to the edges to make it look a bit more like space. I then added SprinkleIt to the center of the pages, this stuff is great as it adds a crunchy texture and it shimmers. I finished off the background by flicking white paint over the top so it looks like stars.

The images have been coloured in with marker pens. 

Thank you for visiting

Emerald Creek Crafts Motivation Fairy Art Journal Page

Hello all

I am back with another project for Emerald Creek Crafts this month. As some of you may know, i started my weight loss journey in March last year and to date i have lost 2st 2lb. However sometimes the weight does not come off for a few weeks and it is frustrating. So i created the motivation fairy as part of my motivation art journal. I thought over the next few weeks i could create a page to put in the folder to keep me going lol.

Product list
Ranger Archival Inks  Vibrant Fuchsia 

I started off by using a StencilGirl (R) mask to add heavy gel medium to the page and then i sprinkled on Rocky Road Embossing Powder. It made me crave a Rocky Road bar so i switched to Dragons Egg for the next layer.

Then i added layers of Lindy's Magicals and let it all dry.

I added the stamps to the background and embossed them with Dragons Egg Embossing Powder.

I printed off a sheet of paper dolls and just cut out the pieces, Then arranged them on the page and glued them down. I then added little quotes to finish the page.

The Blank Page Muse Tworki Boy Love Tag

Hello all

I have a tag made with this adorable little chap!!

Take a blank tag and stamp the chain link background stamp over the top, apply ink to the sections of the stamp to create a faded effect.
Next take the rose stamps from the Background Grunge set and stamp them onto the tag using the different stamp sizes.

Apply a stencil mask onto the tag and let the modeling paste set.
Take some watercolour paints and using a water pen apply the colours onto the tag.
Stamp out the Tworki Boy stamp and colour in with marker pens.
I had to colour the main image again after realising that it got lost against the background.
Add Sisal to the tag and then glue the main image down.
Glue on a free beads and enamel dots before finishing off with a sentiment.
