Create My Art Book

Hi dear crafty friends! Today I want to share with you how I Create My Art Book. I love creating art books and making them my own by working on each page and adding my own style and creativity. Here’s how I do it…       Create My Art Book An art book is basically an art journal that we create from scratch and is bound in a book form. The idea is to express ideas, feelings, dreams and fears on one hand and create art on the other on separate paper pieces in different sizes and patterns. Those pieces of papers are divided into signatures that are stitched together into a book. A signature is a group of about 2-3 folded papers. No art book is similar to another because each book is a representation or a mirror of its creator. I have already created two signatures in my art book. The first one is all about acrylic …

Double Frame Canvas for Studio 75 DT

Hi dear crafty friends! Today I want to share with you a Double Frame Canvas for Studio 75 DT. This canvas is a combination between paper crafting and mixed media. You don’t always need to have a full mixed media background or project to get pretty steampunk piece.   Double Frame Canvas. Studio 75 DT I started with painting the edges of the canvas with black gesso. Then I attached a piece of pattern cardstock on top. I used the Mrs & Mr collection by Studio 75. For added texture I added chipboards which I painted with acrylic paints to the background. I added two frames as my focal points for the vintage photos I used.         To enhance the steampunk look I added some metal embellishments. When you use metallic paints, cogwheel shaped chipboards and metal parts you can have that steampunk look on any project!       Have you Joined the VIP Room? Where every month …

ATC Cards with a Twist

Hi dear crafty friends! Today I want to share my new ATC Cards with a Twist. Why a twist? because of the stamps I used on them. These are quirky, whimsical and different stamps I got from Stampotique. I really like their designs so I had to create another project in addition to the art journal page I created last week.     ATC Cards with a Twist Atc’s or Artist Trading Cards are small cards created in different style and design in the purpose to trade them. It’s really fun and if you really get in to it you have a collection of little pieces of art from artists around the world in different styles and looks. I always create a series of atc’s with the same design elements and colors.             I started with adding texture to the background with stencils and modeling paste. Then I painted the cards with metallic paints. To …

Home Decor Steampunk Altered Brushes

Hi dear crafty friends! Today I want to share with you my Home Decor Steampunk Altered Brushes. If you have old unused brushes this project is a good recycling idea for them. If you don’t have old dry brushes then remember not to throw away the brushes when you can’t use them anymore.     Home Decor Steampunk Altered Brushes I’m terrible when it comes to cleaning my brushes. I always forget to clean them and I leave them with all the paint or glue on. his results in many ruined brushes I can’t use anymore. BUT I almost never throw things away, including my brushes because there is always something to do with them… This time I took all my old brushes and glued them together to create a surface to work on. I covered the brushes with rust paste to add to their degraded look. Then I added all kinds of metal embellishments and embellishments I created from …

What if I Fall Art Journal Page

Hi dear crafty friends Today I want to share my What if I Fall Art Journal Page.This page is a little different than usual in its look and process. I got these new stamps from a friend and just had to try them… this is what came out.     What if I Fall Art Journal Page Sometimes I start an art journal page from something I want to say like a sentiment or a quote. But sometimes I want to try a new fun supply that I got. In this case I got these cool stamps I just had to try. So I created the background first without really knowing how it will proceed.       I created “hills” with masking tape and then added lots of spraying. Then I stamped my page with these two funky looking girls and started adding details and color. Finally I added one of my favorite quotes that was really appropriate to …
