Nature Sketchbook Double Layout with a Twist

Hi crafty friends! Today I want to share one of my Graphic 45 project for this month: Nature Sketchbook Double Layout with a Twist. It has been awhile since I created a layout, much less a double layout so it wasn’t easy. Nature Sketchbook Double Layout with a Twist However even though creating the layout was initialy kind of hard once I started it all came back and I had fun. I did notice that it’s almost impossible for me now to create a project with only paper. I always feel like I need to add a little mixed media to it. This time it was no different. So the twist I added to the page was green grass made from gauses I sprayed with different colors of green inks. Not only did it add color it also added dimension and texture to the page making it more interesting and fun to look at.       Nature Sketchbook is …

The Best Way to Add a Flap to a Page

Hi dear friends! Today I want to share with you The Best Way to Add a Flap to a Page. There are other ways of course but this is my favorite way to do this and I think it’s also the easiest and fastest way too.     The Best Way to Add a Flap to a Page To create the page you’ll need three pieces of cardstock: The base page, the back ground page and the page for the flap. First decide the size of the base page. The background page should be slightly smaller than the base, about 1/8″ smaller. Finally the size of the flap should be wider than the background page but the same height. Here’s the video tutorial with all the measurements and the complete process. This page is the first page of 15 pages that are part of an interactive mini album in The Ultimate Interactive Mini Album Series. The series includes 6 full step …

How to Create a Clean Look in Your Art Journal

There is a misconception that art journal pages should be busy, with lots of colors and packed with techniques. But I want to show you How to Create a Clean Look in Your Art Journal. An art journal page can be simple and clean with a lot of white space as long as you like it. Here is how you can create such a page in your art journal:     How to Create a Clean Look in Your Art Journal The best material to use in my opinion is water colors. Water colors have a transparent soft look that is perfect for a clean look yet colorful. I didn’t have anything in mind when I started the page. I just took my water brush and started adding color to the page.   Usually at this point I get an idea of how I want to continue. But if I don’t I simply add more color or shapes. Sooner or …

Sizzix Design Team!

I have some good news… I’m on the Sizzix Design Team! Sometimes things just happen. You don’t do anything and an opportunity is knocking at your door. This is what happened in this case…     One day as I was going over my emails I saw an email from a lady called Rebbeca from Sizzix. It was kind os a surprise because I had exchanged some emails with Sizzix in the past but it wasn’t with rebbeca it was with another lady and nothing came out of it. So I started reading and found out that I was invited to be on the Sizzix design team! Talk about a surprise… I love Sizzix and I have created many projects with their products in the past. Most of them in blog hops organized by my talented designer friend Eileen Hull who designs dies for Sizzix. They always have the best and most original products and the possibilities are endless! This is …

Imagine Mixed Media Canvas

Hi crafty friends! I’m in the mixed media mood recently and today I want to share a new creation: Imagine Mixed Media Canvas. This canvas was created in the same technique as the last two canvases I shared with you. This technique is one of my favorite because it can transform anything to anything and basically it’s easy to do but its effect is amazing! Imagine Mixed Media Canvas I started with adding texture with modeling paste and a stencil. You can see I also added chipboard corners for extra dimension.     Then I arranged my elements on the canvas. I went for the shabby chic look again with adorned frame and lots of flowers.     You probably guess what’s the next step is… cover everything with gesso. This gives everything the same color more or less and primes all the materials for the next step. When you create a mixed media canvas you use metal, plastic, paper, …
