Having Fun With Shipping Tags No.10

Hi everyone!

For today's tag challenge (yes, I know it's been way too long since I've had a tag challenge) I had to 'blindly' choose 6 different products to use on the tag and only use those 6 products. You can use black and white as these are neutral colours. Also you are able to use stamps (black or white ink only), stencils, gesso, texture paste, etc.

So the 6 products I chose were:

Pebeo DYNA 'iridescent green blue' acrylic paint * Lindy's Stamp Gang 'bells of Ireland green' starburst spray * Liquitex Professional 'yellow oxide' ink * Lindy's Stamp Gang 'bratwurst brown' Magicals powder * Prima|Finnabair 'dark olive' rust effect paste * Tim Holtz 'gathered twigs' distress oxide

For all our tag challenges head on over to our FaceBook group JOURNAL TECHNIQUES by CLICKING HERE.

Journal Cover - Growth

Hi everyone!

On my last live stream I painted my 'repurposed' journal covers. I have finally finished another journal!!!

So today we used soft colours in greens and blues and added some ceecee 'pretties' flowers to finish it. Although by the time I added the flowers I didn't know what the title would be until I finished the stream and thought about it. That's when I came up with the title 'GROWTH'. Growth being how we grow in our art from practise.

Hi everyone!

I'm so excited to tell you that I have been invited to be a guest designer for StencilGirl® Talk!

All I had to do was create something using one or more of their stencils, so I decided on a journal page. I created a video on the entire process and took photos of each stage along the way.

For the step by step process and pics head on over to StencilGirl® Talk and check it out!

Art Journal Page 217

Hi everyone!

I started off with some distress paints and chalky finish paints and just went from there to see where the page took me.

I wanted a vintage style page which was why I chose the vintage photo and walnut stain distress paints, but I also wanted soft tones so that's why I used the chalky finish paints. Added a couple of stencils and a mask. I recently went through all my stencils and found the OLD Tim Holtz masks from years ago so I decided to use one of those today. How often we forget what we have packed away in our craft area!

Art Journal Live Stream - Imagine

Hi everyone!

So I'm finally back on track and back to 'normal'! I've recently had my daughter's wedding that I was kept busy with all the planning and preparations. I had a house full for quite a white! But now I can relax and play!

My first stream back I went straight back into the blind 6 challenge. I blindly chose the following products:

Liquitex Basics 'brilliant purple' acrylic paint
Jacquard 'pearl turquoise' Lumiere acrylic paint
Lindy's Stamp Gang 'cuckoo clock cardinal' Magicals
Tim Holtz 'spun sugar' distress ink reinker
Portfolios Water Soluble Oil Pastels in 'golden brown'
Washi tape

From the beginning I thought these combinations could work together and create a harmonious page. How wrong was I? The red magicals threw a spanner in the works. I just couldn't get it all to work cohesively together. The end result is just okay. I think LOL.
