Altered Journaling Girl Tag

  Hello!

Over in the Bee Crafty Facebook group Sally is running the monthly challenge and this month the theme is to create a tag or journal page.  All you have to do is create a project using Bee Crafty products and put it into the challenge album and you are in with a chance to win a £20 Bee Crafty stamps voucher!!

So this week I thought I would create a tag...


1) I started by creating a background on my tag using two of the d'inkables with some distress inks - the d'inkable range are on special offer this weekend!


2) Next I cut out some circles from the Bee Crafty paper range.  To create my girl I stamped the top half of the Elegant Journaling Girl and some of the flowers.  This was then cut out and I altered her hair style and coloured her using Ecoline markers.  To create a longer skirt I cut out another piece of the paper and then a small butterfly wing from one of the sheets...


3) Then the pieces were layered onto the tag with some black ink added around some edges to make them stand out more...


4) Finally I added some of the flower stamps from the same stamp set and a sentiment from the Dylusions Back Chat stickers...

Embossed Resist Butterfly Card

  Hello!

This week I am sharing a quick to make card...


1) I stamped two of the butterflies using embossing ink and heat embossed with white superfine powder.

2) Using a blending brush I added distress inks across the right side of the card.  I used worn lipstick, mustard seed and salvaged patina.

3) To create extra texture I splashed some water droplets across the ink and lifted it with a piece of kitchen roll.

4) The sentiment was stamped onto black card and embossed with white powder before putting the card altogether, adding a black card layer to lift the colours.

'Love You To The Moon & Back' Card

  Hello!

This week I have created a card using lots of layers for the background and the beautiful La Luna stamp collection...

1) I started by applying 3 different colours of distress oxide spray (squeezed lemonade, picked raspberry & mermaid lagoon), spritzing and splattering.  I made sure that I dried between layers...

2) Next I added stenciling using the distress oxide inkpads (fossilised amber, salvaged patina & kitsch flamingo), and applied them through three stencils with various sizes of circles...


3) After this I added stamping using the La Luna stamp set and different colours of archival ink.  I then coloured some of the circles with a scribble stick and added some white paint pen dots...


4) To create even more layers I then stamped some of the textured stars using white and black ink...


5) Finally I used the extra piece of card that I had also coloured at the start to stamp out the moon and a sentiment using black versafine clair which I heat embossed with clear powder.  Then the pieces were all matted onto black card and mounted together on a card blank...

Adventure Awaits!

  Hello!

I think I may have been influenced by the weather over the last couple of days as my project this week has a bit of a stormy sea feel...


I also made a video whilst creating this journal spread which you can watch by clicking on the link...

https://youtu.be/LDeLWh73ljY

1) I started out in my tag journal that already had distress oxide spray on the pages.  The colours were salvaged patina, kitsch flamingo and squeezed lemonade...


2) Using the squeezed lemonade distress oxide inkpad I stencilled some circles through one of the templates from the bullet journaling set...


3) For a bit of extra background interest I used the salvaged patina distress oxide pad through the bakewell big inkable...


4) To start a picture on my pages I used some of the stamps from the regular lighthouse stamp set in watering can archival...


5) To create more focal images I stamped and die cut some of the elements, coloured them with ecoline brush pens then highlighted with a white posca pen...



6) These were then added to the pages...


7) Finally I added a sentiment from the ticker tape 3 set and splashes of white gloss spray for added sea foam...

Lots of Sunflowers Card

  Hello!

As this week is mental health awareness week and the theme is nature I thought I would use some time to create a fairly simple card that reflected the theme of nature but was also quite mindful with some colouring in to do...


1) First I stamped the sunflower head from the regular doodle art set onto a piece of distress watercolour card.  I used archival ink as I knew I wanted to add water based products.

2) Then I used the Ecoline brush pens to colour.  I added them directly to the card when colouring the flowers without adding any water and blended the colours.

3) Next I added a pale green background also with the pens, but this time I scribbled the colour out onto a block and added water before painting on with a brush.

4) I then spritzed the card with water to cause some of the colour on the sunflowers to move and run.  When I was happy with how it looked I used my heat tool to dry them.  Once it was dry I added white gelly roll pen for highlights.

5) Finally I stamped a sentiment from Everyday Sentiments 1 onto black card with embossing ink and heat embossed it in white.  I added a black mat to help the images to pop and then mounted it onto a 6" card blank.

I hope you all get a chance to do some crafting this weekend.
Take care,

Jane xx

Vintage Moth Tag Journal Spread

  Hello!

This week on the Bee Crafty facebook page I did a live where I used the Tim Holtz distress oxide sprays to create tags which I made into a tag journal.  So today I have used one of the backgrounds in that journal to create a spread...

1) I started with a double tag page that had been made using the distress oxide colours salvaged patina, rusty hinge and vintage photo...


2) Using versafine clair in brown and clear embossing powder, I stamped and heat embossed some of the coffee stains...


3) Next I stamped some of the script XL in salvaged patina distress oxide and added clear embossing powder over the top which pushed it further into the background...


4) To add extra dimension I used distress grit paste through the damask inkable on either side of the spread.  One of the features of the distress texture pastes is that they take on the colour of distress inks, so the brown from the oxide sprays underneath started to colour the paste which gave it an even more vintage feel...


5) Then I stamped the moth from the dragonfly stamp set onto Dina Wakley plain collage paper and also watercolour card which I cut out with the dies.  The collage moths were adhered to the pages with collage medium and the other two were coloured with scribble sticks before adding...


6) To frame the pages I blended some black soot distress ink around the edges and finally splattered with gloss spray and added a ticker tape 3 sentiment...
