Rocking My Travellers Notebook - With Scrapping Clearly!

Today I have some pages in my Websters Pages Travellers Notebook to share with you made using the Cocoa Vanilla Studio "You Rock" collection available in the  Scrapping Clearly Store.

Travellers Notebooks are quite popular at the moment. I love their small portable size and that there is less formality than a scrapbook page. I also love using little photos on the pages!

I created these pages after I finished creating 4 scrapbook pages with the same paper collection. It was a great way to use up paper offcuts :)
I added paper strips to the edges of each of the TN pages and washi strips under the photo and title. I then added stickers, enamel shapes and splatters of watercolour pan paints, as well as journalling. 
A similar process was used to create these next pages - adding lots of paper offcuts, rubber charms, enamel shapes and paint splatters.

Mini Canvas Nameplates - With Imaginarium Designs!

Today I'm sharing 2 mini canvas nameplates made using lots of gorgeous Imaginarium Designs chipboard. The theme for the DT this month is "canvas". I dont often do canvas projects but I had these small canvas boards (10cmx10cm) and wanted to try some mini creations :)

Here are some step by stem photos of my creative process. I started by selecting the chipboard I wanted to use on each canvas and gluing it down. Then I applied white gesso over the entire canvas.
Next I mixed a bit of each of my Lindy's "Drop Dead Diva" Magicals into a palate and added water - so I could apply to my canvas with a brush. I applied with a brush first to get the overall effects I was after then I also added some Magicals direct to the canvas in places. 
Here is the finished first step with the painting. Once this had dried I added some flowers and painted these as well.
Once it was all dry again I added some stamping and used a black gelato to define the edges. I also added some black and white paint splatters with my Posca paint pens (I wish i hadn't done this actually!!). 

Here are some photos of the finished canvases!

Adventure - With Scrapping Clearly!

Today I have a scrapbook page to share with you made using the Cocoa Vanilla Studio "You Rock" collection and Colour Blast pastes and shimmer sprays available in the  Scrapping Clearly Store.

I had so much fun creating this page! I havent had much time for crafting lately and had lots of DT commitments to catch up on. So I limited myself to the CVS You Rock collection and a selection of Colour Blast products and went from there. In the end I pumped out 6 projects in 24 hours - BOOM!! If you are ever in a creative rut then my first suggestion is to limit your supplies so you are not overwhelmed with choice :) 

I started my background by spraying and splattering Deep Water and Sunshine shimmer sprays and a red mist across white cardstock - concentrating it under my photo placement and in the bottom right corner. I then added stencilling (KaiserCraft mini stencils) with Deep water, sunshine and dusty charcoal Colour Pastes. 
Next I layered a heap of the awesome You Rock papers under my photo - the colours and patterns in this collection are so cool - perfect for girly layouts too! 
I added a few of the fun wood veneer and rubber embellishments across my page. 
Finally I added some flair and stickers from the sticker sheet - word sticker are my favourite embellishment at the moment!
Although the Scrapping Clearly store is temporarily closed Scrapping Clearly products I've used include

Art Anthology Art Journalling - With Scrapping Clearly!

Today I have an Art Journal page to share with you made using lots of awesome  Art Anthology products available in the  Scrapping Clearly Store.

Art Anthology products were new to me and I was so excited to receive a selection of their products in my latest DT kit from Scrapping Clearly. Whenever I try a new product I start by using it on an art journal page. I rarely have a plan, I just go with the flow and let the paints guide me.

Lately I've been doing my art journalling on loose cardstock with the aim to bind them together with my Zutter bind-it-all. Although I love art journals I find them to be very big and bulky in my small workspace and also I often accidentally spill paints on other pages - which is annoying. So I made this page on a piece of 6" x 6" marshmallow cardstock. 
Firstly I painted blue and purple Art Anthology velvet dimensional medium across my page using a silicone brush (these brushes are so good to use and easy to clean between colours!). These paints are somewhat transparent - sort of like a tinted gel medium. Then I added some stencils - firstly a bubble stencil with brown Art Anthology sorbet dimensional medium (this is also transparent and has loads of shimmer).  
Next I added a dots and dashes stencil with orange Art Anthology sorbet dimensional medium. Then I added some of the red Art Anthology stone effects in places. Next I added some spritzes of yellow, pink and teal Art Anthology Colorations color spray.
After drying this off properly I added a Cherry blossom stencil with yellow Art Anthology sorbet dimensional medium - see the wonderful shimmer!! As I was creating I added any paint leftovers to a scrap piece of cardstock - this is always useful for cutting, stamping and adding to your page, and you dont waste any paint!! I also added some stamping using some fun Dina Wakley circle patterns stamps.
I used my Fude ball pen to draw a boarder around the page. I cut up the scrap page and added it to my page too.
Here are some close-ups of my page - I love how it turned out!!
