Water Colors Adventures: Art Journaling



Hi dear crafty friends! Recently I told you I discovered water colors but now I can say I can’t get enough of them. So I continue my Water Colors Adventures: Art Journaling. I love their look on an art journal page and I love the color play, layers and transparency I can achieve with them. Water Colors Adventures: Art Journaling This time I challenged my self not only to continue playing with water colors but also to create a page without a title or a quote. It was a struggle. I kept feeling the page is too empty and had to go back to it several times and add more details. It was also a great thing to discover that water colors go really well with stencils too. I kind of liked the bluring of the lines and that some of the paint seeped under the stencil.        If you haven’t tried water colors before please give it …

Let Your Heart Set Sail Mixed Media Canvas



Hi dear crafty friends! Today I want to share with you my new creation: Let Your Heart Set Sail Mixed Media Canvas. Is it clear I’m in a summer mood? Personally there isn’t a lot I like about summer because it’s hot and humid, at least here. But One thing I do love…the sea. The colors of the water, the sand, the wind, the seashells…it’s all magical to me.     Let Your Heart Set Sail Mixed Media Canvas This canvas was inspired by the Lindy’s Stamp Gang June Challenge. I used two of the colors in the challenge.       First I sprayed the canvas with colors of sea and sand. I used the South Shore sand and other yellow shades for the beach and Shabby Turbine Teal  along with other teal and blue shades for the sea and skies. Then I added texture with pieces of gauze I sprayed with the sand and water colors. The next step …

Water Colors Tags with Stamps and Fussy Cutting Tutorial



Hi dear crafty friends! Today I’m sharing the Water Colors Tags with Stamps and Fussy Cutting Tutorial I made as my first post as Graphic 45 Brand Ambassador. I know I’ve already told you how excited I am about it. Being a design team member for a second year is a dream come true!     Water Colors Tags with Stamps and Fussy Cutting Tutorial In this project I decided to explore water colors with the Graphic 45 stamps. I used water colors before but this time I wanted to see if I could use them to create a background for the tags. The Voyage Beneath the Sea papers match the sea water look of the water colors on the tags perfectly. I have a very modest set of water colors but that didn’t matter because I blended a few colors together to create more colors. After all the sea has so many colors of blue and green in it …

Capture the Moment Card with Sizzix



Hi dear crafty friends! Today I want to share with you a new project. Capture the Moment Card with Sizzix. This is my first DT project for Sizzix. I’m really excited to share it with you!      Capture the Moment Card with Sizzix It was kind of strange for me to create a project that is based on paper only after creating many mixed media and art journaling projects. But it felt good to return to the basics and just play with paper. Don’t worry I plan to create some mixed media projects with Sizzix die cuts too. After all their Bigz dies can cut chipboard like butter. That would be a lot of fun to add them to a canvas or a box.           I created this card by layering pieces of paper with chipboard so they’ll have a little height and them added flowers that were all created with Sizzix dies. At first …
