Derwent and Art Journaling

Good Morning Everyone,

Want to share with you one of my favourite techniques that I use to make my  background in my art journal. I got this technique from Terri Kahri. She has a wonderful video you can watch. I like to use Dylusions Small Creative Journal when I am working on different techniques. This is sort of like my note book of techniques.
I love using the Derwent Intense Colored Pencils to make this back ground.




Before you start you must prep your page with gesso. If you don't, your page will pill ( not sure if that is the word). You scribble over your page with your Derwent Intense Pencils. These are the colours I started with, Tangerine, Sienna Gold, Violet and Freesia. Using a baby wipe you rub your marks until they are mixed together. You let this dry and then add Sherbet and Dark Aquamarine.


I then take Dina Wakeley Turquoise paint and rub with a baby wipe to certain areas of my pages. Not too much but enough to blend the colours. 


I than used Dina Wakeley Textures stamps with different colours of her paint and stamp all over to finish off the background.



You can also use this technique to make  backgrounds for your card making. 

Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Lindy's Stamp Gang Golden Angel Wings and Ultimate Crafts Summer Breeze

Good Morning Everyone,

Thought for this up coming Donate to Create we should try some of the new Lindy's Stamp Gang embossing powder. Lindy's embossing powders are two tone, it gives you a secondary shimmer to your image. So I picked Golden Angel Wings to highlight the butterfly. I also used a new embossing folder from Ultimate Crafts- Bella Collection for my background, this one is called Summer Breeze. The butterfly is from Graphic 45 stamp set Botanical Tea.



My picture didn't give the embossed butterfly justice. Hope to see you this coming Wednesday. Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Denim and Daises Stamp & Die Set

Good Morning Everyone,

Want to share with you this Wednesday, Donate to Create Card. I used the stamp and die set, Denim and Daises from Paper Smooches.  This is such a cute set. The paper is from Graphic 45 new line Erie Tale Enchantment. Love Love this paper. The colours are beautiful. Then I had to add bling, buttons and some dots with the Viva Decor Pearl Pen.





  Inside the card I added a 4x5 piece of card stock and the extra little pieces from my die cuts. This way you  can stamp or write a sentiment. 


 


Hope to see you this Wednesday. Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Night Out at the Opera

Good Morning Everyone,

What a glorious morning we are having. Loving the sunshine.

Here is another tag I did at SGD's Retreat. I used the Dina Wakely acrylic paints. These paints are like no other. They are thicker , go on smoothly and easy to colour with.  The stamp is from Dyan Reaveley collection called Night out at the Opera.  Also got to play with this Faber-Castell Glass bead glitter gel. I used this with one of my stencils to add some glitter to the back ground.  You can add this to your scrap booking pages, cards and mixed media. Fun, fun stuff to play with.




Thanks for  looking and have a great day.
