Mixed Media Art Journal Share

Hi there!

Here is a mixed media art journal spread that I would like to share with you!  If you enjoy watching videos, you can check out the YouTube video for it here:

If you'd prefer still images, they are available below!

This is the full spread for this project.
The art journal is a 6x6 watercolor art journal.

My main colours are Cobalt and Iris Prima Color Bloom sprays.

This is the tissue paper that I randomly found at Michael's in their clearance section.
I love using it, and will likely run out of it sooner, rather than later.
This is the 13arts stencil I used on the tops and bottoms of the pages of this art journal spread.

Thank you very much for stopping by!

I really enjoyed making this art journal spread and I hope you come back again soon!

Prima Build a Page Challenge Entry, April 2015

Thank you to Keren once again for designing a sketch I can get behind for the Prima B-A-P challenge for April. :)

My take of the sketch was done on a wooden mini canvas.
I kept the tones monochromatic using red as my base.

I added 3 types of glitter and used paper and embellishments from the Prima Princess collection as well as a resin frame.

For the painted background, I used acrylic paint as well as modelling paste to give it more texture.  I feel like the texture isn't well captured in the photos here, and I will try to add another more textural photo for you to see. :)

I also feel like it's missing dark accents, but I'm not sure if I should just go with black or use red to compliment the monochromatic feel... It's one of those things that if I thought about it too long, I'd never consider this finished, so I stopped thinking about it, and I'm calling it done (for now).

Thanks so much for dropping by!!

Altered Bottle Project Share

So this is something I don't think I've shared before.

It's quite simply an altered bottle!

It wasn't exactly simply made though, and I'll give you a quick rundown of what I put into this project!

I used gel medium first to give the bottle texture.
Then I added some stenciling using stencils from 13arts.
I painted the entire textured stemciled bottle in gesso to prep for adding colour!

Sprayed some mists on it, added some cheesecloth, flowers, lace, bling and trims... and voila!

Feel free to ask any questions you may have about the project, and as usual, thanks for dropping by!!

Prima Marketing Projects I've Made and Would Like to Share

One of my favourite crafting oriented companies is Prima Marketing.

They provide products for people in all aspects of crafting, and that is something I truly appreciate. It is a company that allows growth as an artist, scrapbooker, card-maker and more because of the HUGE variety of products available from the company.

In addition to that, when the paper collections come out, a TON of coordinating embellishments are also released to make creating projects that much easier!! Not to mention the other products like stencils, mediums and more! *dreamy sigh*

In case you're wondering:
- My favourite embellishments to use from Prima include the flower vines and resin pieces. I hoard resin pieces like it's nobody's business.
- My favourite paper lines that have been released include Romance Novel & Cartographer.

Here is a series of Prima based projects I've completed, mostly within the last 6 months.

First up, some canvas projects I've worked on:

Below are some card projects I've worked on:
