Welcome to my blog! I am a stamp addict who has become obsessed with Mixed Media techniques and learning new techniques! I’m trying to learn how to draw and paint using books and social media. I love creating cards and mixed media projects for others and my family. I blog to keep a record of my progress.
noticed I create gorgeous inky and textured backgrounds and then I glue stuff
on top of them, lol, I need to create smaller stuff, lol, so I get to see and
touch these backgrounds much more.
very happy I got to do a little journaling this month! This is a single page spread in my A5 journal. I had a lot of fun creating the inky background
as well as playing with my SNAT’s through a stencil, watercolour pencils to sketch
with and using SNAT’s to colour her in with.
A quick step by step is below.
out with an A4 sheet of white card; attached a Tando Creative stencil; added Maimeri
Glossy gel to react as a resist and left to dry.
dry I used Stampendous Grunge stamp set with two DIPs; adding EP randomly; heat
set the whole sheet before moving on again.
the Tando Creative stencil and used SNAT that I had watered down in a pallette
and ink blending foam to add more colour to the background.
the lady with my watercolour pencils and coloured her with the SNAT’s, fussy
cut her out and glued on top of half of the inky background.
the flowers onto other snippets which had been coloured with SNAT’s; fussy cut them; glued onto her hair; and glued
the whole lot into my journal.
Yay! I’ve another piece of this background to play
with – hopefully next month if not before!
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get
some time to do what you love to do this week
