Cards - With Bee Arty!

  Hi Lovelies!

Today I have two cards to share with you made using the Destination Anywhere collection from Bee Arty. I love this collection, it is perfect for masculine projects and family layouts!
 
  
 I started by creating 2 diecuts, using heavyweight 350gsm white cardstock, of the Grungy Filmstrip frame die for the front of my cards.

I then painted Rust Colour Artist Ink on one frame and Walnut Colour Artist ink on the other. I painted with a brush to give a mottled effect using a more concentrated ink in places and more watered down in other places.
 

 
Here are my finished cards.
 
 
 Here is a close up of the first card "Keep Calm and Travel On". My card base measured 10.5cm x 14.8cm and was created from Kraft cardstock. I matted 10cm x 14.3cm Journey paper (reverse side) from the Destination Anywhere collection. I then added the frame diecut painted in Rust ink. I die cut 2 of the planes using the Transport metal dies (in white cardstock) and painted a Rust Artist ink coloured stripe along the side to coordinate with the card colours and to tone down the stark white. I cut one of the planes in half and adhered them to the card as shown. I cut the card title from the Parcel paper and around the title I added a strip offcut from a Grungy Filmstrip diecut (these negative strips are as fun to use as the positive cuts). Lastly I added some hessian trim and black sewing thread.

 
The next card is called "Sightseeing". Once again the card base measured 10.5cm x 14.8cm and was created from Kraft cardstock. I matted 10cm x 14.3cm Journey paper (reverse side) from the Destination Anywhere collection. I then added the frame diecut painted in Walnut ink. I die cut 1 of the Combi-Van's using the Transport metal dies (in white cardstock) and painted an Olive Grove Mica Powder stripe along the side. I adhered it to the card as shown and attached 2 vintage brads to the wheels. I cut the card title from the Parcel paper and adhered it over some hessian trim, a chipboard offcut, and black sewing thread.

Like A Dream - With Scrapping Clearly!

Hi Lovelies!

Today I have an art journal page that I created using lots of fun products available at Scrapping Clearly!  
 
 
I'm playing along with the April moodboard challenge. We would love for you to join in with this challenge and be in the running to win a Scrapping Clearly store voucher. You have until April 30th and you need to upload your challenge here

 

These pages are created on a burlap page in my 8x10 Dina Wakley Media Journal. Once again I find these pages a challenge to use - So I decided to create some tags to attach to the page.
 
I've use a tag that I added stencilling using Distress Oxides in colours that coordinated with the moodboard - I used Cracked Pistachio, squeezed lemonade, and worn lipstick. These were sponged through an Art By Marlene stencil.  
 
 I added a photo I found on Pinterest, I matted it on some tags from a Heidi Swapp Embellishment kit. Lastly I added some white diecuts,  Tim Holtz Idea-ology Snarky quotes and ScrapFX Flowery Bits. I doodled around the edges of all the tags with a black Fude Ball pen.
 
 Here is my completed page.
 

 Here are some close-ups of the page.

Moodboard Art Journalling - With Scrapping Clearly!

  Hi Lovelies!

Today I have an art journal page that I created using lots of fun products available at Scrapping Clearly!  
 
    
 I'm playing along with the April moodboard challenge. We would love for you to join in with this challenge and be in the running to win a Scrapping Clearly store voucher. You have until April 30th and you need to upload your challenge here.
 

These pages are created on a calico fabric page in my 8x10 Dina Wakley Media Journal. I've looked at this fabric page for some time now but been hesitant to use it because the fabric can be more challenging to use than cotton watercolour (my favourite surface). But once you get into using it and just go with the flow it was a lot of fun :)
 
 I started by applying clear gesso to the page (the gesso will stop the paint/ink bleeding through the fabric) then added some Distress Oxide reinkers in colours that coordinated with the moodboard - I used Cracked Pistachio, fossilised amber, and worn lipstick.

   
Next I sponged these same inks through an Art By Marlene stencil to add more interest to the background.
 
 
 Then I added  Art Extravagance Old Silver Icing Paste through another background stencil - these pastes are divine!


Lately I added background stamping.

  
To complete the page I added a photo I found on Pinterest, I matted it on some Heidi Swapp Color Magic Notes that I added the same colour Distress Oxides too, and a tag from a Heidi Swapp Embellishment kit. Lastly I added some white gauze, white diecuts,  Tim Holtz Idea-ology Snarky quotes and Tim Holtz Transparent Wings.
 
 Here is my completed page.
 
  
 Here are some close-ups of the page.
