Believe in Possibilities Journal Page for Bee Crafty

  Hello!

Last week on the Bee Crafty Facebook page I started creating a journal page in the 8" x 8" Dylusions journal, so this week for the blog I thought I would finish the whole spread by creating on the left hand page...


1) First I painted the page using blue acrylic paint but to make it a bit more translucent to match the other side I added some Dina Wakley glazing medium as well...

2) The left page was a bit more textured and difficult to stamp on because of the elements on the previous pages, so I decided to stamp some images onto tissue paper that could then be stuck on.  I used the Butterflies Possibilities and Just Bloom sets.

I used archival ink as this would stay permanent on the tissue when adding collage medium...


3) I cut the images out quite near to the lines and then added them to the page using distress collage medium...


4) As the surface was now less porous due to the collage medium I used permanent markers to colour the images...


5) To add some extra highlights I used a white posca pen on the images then added some background dots to the background using a blue posca pen so that the two sides of the spread matched...


6) Finally to help the butterflies stand out I used a water soluble black pencil to add some shading.  Then I took the sentiment from the butterfly set and stamped it in patches multiple times...



To create my spread I used the following:

Simply With Love for Bee Crafty

  Hello!

This week on the Bee Crafty blog I am sharing a really quick and simple card for any occasion...


1) I used the Perspective Circles inkable with distress inks to create a background on a piece of white stamping card.

2) Extra distress ink was added around the edges of the card with a blending brush.

3) Using archival black ink I stamped the head of the Doodle Sunflower XL 3 times directly onto the background.

4) I coloured the flowers using markers.

5) The sentiment from Everyday Sentiments 2 was stamped directly onto the card also in black archival ink.

6) The card was mounted onto black card stock then a 5" square card blank.


Here are the products I used:


Sometimes it is good to be able to make a quick card when needed and this was really easy to create.

Distress Crayons Tags with Bee Crafty

 


Hello!

This week on the Bee Crafty blog I have finished off some tags that I started in a Facebook live over on the Bee Crafty Facebook page this week...


I was using Distress Crayons on a variety of surfaces with different techniques but they all remained incomplete so I have finished off three of them.  If you would like to see the video of the live you can do that by clicking the link... https://www.facebook.com/BeeCraftyStamps/videos/318661192680476

This first tag was made with stamping card, washi tape and a tissue butterfly then sealed with collage medium.  Next I added distress crayons across the whole tag then wiped back the colour on the butterfly.  The tag was sealed with micro glaze then stamping was added using one of the texture borders.  

After the live I added extra colour to the butterfly using permanent markers, stenciled on the circles using more distress crayon then added extra around the edges.  Finally I added some text from the Small Words set.


The next tag was created by adding the distress crayons to a tag cut from canvas out of the Dina Wakley mixed media journal.  The crayons were scribbled on then water spritzed on top.  I added the Roman Numerals stamp using memento black ink.

Afterwards I did some more stamping using the Pocket Watch.  I added another tag underneath created with the burlap also from the journal then built up a sentiment from the Small Words set.  
The tags were joined together using a piece of twine and also some staples.


This third tag was made by creating the coloured background using the crayons then wiping some off with water through the dahlia stencil.  To create a border around the tag a black distress crayon was run around the edges then smudged in.

I felt that this tag just needed a bit of silhouette style stamping, so after the live added the teasels then  another sentiment from the Small Words, but this time on black with white embossing powder.

Live by the Sea ATC's for Bee Crafty

  Hello!

This week on the Bee Crafty blog I am sharing a pair of artist trading cards that I made using some of the lovely art stamps designed by Sam...


1) I started by applying metallic watercolours (black, blue and green) to watercolour card and added lots of water to blend them around.  Then I cut them into pieces measuring 2 1/4" x 3 1/4"...


2) Next I stamped the seaweed and moon from the regular conch shell set using clear embossing ink and added silver embossing powder.  After it was heated it was still a bit tricky to see, but I left it as it was to add some extra detail in the background...


3) Next I used the night and white Dina Wakley gloss sprays to add some splatters...


4) I took the smaller conch shell from the XL set and stamped it onto watercolour card with archival black ink.  Then I coloured them using some more metallic watercolour paints (pink, purple, blue and green).  I also stamped out the sentiment from the regular set onto some of the original card that was left over...


5) These were then attached with some glue gel and foam tape and I matted the cards onto black card measuring 2 1/2" x 3 1/2"...

Monochrome Easel Card for Bee Crafty

  Hello!

Today on the Bee Crafty blog I am sharing a simple but elegant card...

I started by using circle dies to cut some black and white circles as well as creating my card base.

Using the Birds and Butterflies stamps and die set I decorated one of the white circles and created a large butterfly for the middle.

Lastly I stamped a sentiment from Everyday Sentiments 2 to mount onto foam tape as the easel stopper.
