Spend Your Life Laughing - With Bee Arty!

 Hi Lovelies!

Today I have a scrapbook page to share with you made using the Electric Dreams collection from Bee Arty. I love how bright and vibrant the colours in this collection are, and they go perfectly with the new Neon mica powders!
 
 
I started with a sheet of heavyweight 350gsm white cardstock. I used a painting with plastic technique to apply yellow neon, pink neon and orange neon Mica Powders across the page under where my photo would be placed and along the left edge. Then I splattered each of these neon Mica Powders across the page.
 
 
Next I used the Distance Stencil with orange neon Mica Powder  mixed with heavy gloss gel. This stencil is one of my favs.

 
Lastly I added some stamping using black ink and the Making tracks stamp set 
 
 
Here is my completed page.  

 
 I've cut paper strips and word elements from the Electric Dreams paper pack. I've also added some diecuts using the Geo Direction metal die and 250gsm white cardstock.
 
 
 I drew around the edge of my page using a thin black Life Of Colour pen. Lastly I added some neon sequins, enamel shapes and a Charms Creations chevron embellishment.

One Moment, Art Journalling - With Bee Arty!

Hi Lovelies!

Today I have an art journal page to share with you made using lots of cool products from Bee Arty.
 
 
I'm playing along with the November moodboard challenge. We would love for you to join in with this challenge and be in the running to win a Bee Arty online voucher. You have until November 30th and you need to upload your challenge here (please follow challenge rules). 


I was inspired by the colours of this moodboard, as well as the cane/hessian texture, and the wall artpiece of the tree/leaf. 

I'm using a cotton rag watercolour page in my DWM art journal. I start by painting Steel, Stormy Weather, Deep water and Sienna Mica Powders on my page using a painting with plastic technique. I also add splatters of each of the colours.
 
 
I then added stamping using the Bokeh stamp set (script) from the Grateful heart collection, and black Archival ink. I used the Scripted Stencil with Dusty Charcoal Colour Paste to add some stencilling across the page. 

 
I also used the Bokeh stamp set (script) to stamp some tissue/collage paper to add to my page.
 
 
Here is my completed page. I found a picture on Pinterest and printed it on photo paper and added to the page.

 
 I've embellished with flower and leaf die cuts in white cardstock and kraft cardstock using the Flowers of Paradise metal dies and  Leaves of Paradise metal dies from the Find Paradise collection. The title "One Moment" is cut from the Untangle collection. I've outlined my page using a fine black Life of Colour paint pen.

Blah Blah Blah - With Bee Arty!

 Hi Lovelies!

Today I have a scrapbook page to share with you made using the new Chit Chat collection from Bee Arty. How cool is this new collection very funky for everyday scrapbooking and art journalling!

 
 I'm playing along with the October sketch challenge. We would love for you to join in with this challenge and be in the running to win a Bee Arty online voucher. You have until October 30th and you need to upload your challenge here (please follow challenge rules). 
 
 
I started with the Alpha paper and cut 2 of 1.5"x12" strips from the top.
 
 
 I then turned over the larger piece of Alpha paper and placed the 2 smaller pieces to the top and bottom of the page.
 
 
Next I took the Speak paper and and cut 2 of 1cmx12" strips and use these to attach the papers together.

 
I used the Marked Stencil with Dusty Charcoal Colour Paste to add some stencilling across the page. I love this stencil! It is perfect for mark making on any project. 
 
  
I added a few drops of Soot Colour Artist ink to a mini mister half filled with water and sprayed on the page.

 
 Here is my completed page - along with a gorgeous picture of my girls:)
 
 
 Under my photo I've used some tissue paper that I've painted with navy Colour Shimmer Dust then stamped with Happy stamp set. I've embellished with speech bubble die cuts from the Chit Chat metal die and  Peeps metal die. I've also added pink micro beads, enamel dots, a paper clip and leftover chipboard negatives.
 


 
 The words are cut from the Love Letter paper and the heart is cut from the cover bonus paper in the Chit Chat collection pack.

Inhale Exhale - With Bee Arty!

 Hi Lovelies!

Today I have an art journal page to share with you made using lots of fun products available from Bee Arty
 
 
I've been enjoying doing gel printing lately so I thought I would play around with Colour Artist inks and a small circle gel plate. I tried applying the ink direct to the gel plate but wasn't getting the effect I was after. I also tried mixing the ink with white gesso but the colour was too muted so I tried mixing it with a soft gloss gel. I used a paint palate to mix each of the colour separately with gel (grass, lime, citrus Colour Artist Ink) then I applied it to the plate.

 
 I had precut white cardstock to approx 4"x4" squares and I created a series of prints - the darkest print coming from the first, then second and third (I didn't add any more coloured gel to the plate between prints). I love the variation they give.
 
 
Once the prints were dry I drew citrus shapes using white and black Life Of Colour pens. I cut out the citrus shapes to use on my page. The print in the top left corner is from inks only on the plate, the bottom print is inks mixed with white gesso, the top right is ink mixed with soft gloss gel. I used some of the prints to punch other sized circles as well.

 
Now on to creating my art journal page. I'm using a cotton watercolour page in my DWM art journal. I start by applying Grass, Lime, and Citrus Colour Artist Ink to the page using a painting with plastic technique (apply each colour separately and dry in between), then add splatters. 
 
 
 Then I added some stamping using the Making Your Mark stamp set from the Untangle collection.
 
 
 Next I've added some stencilling using the Starry Night stencil (from the Grateful Heart collection) and Dusty Charcoal Colour Paste


Here is my finished page.
 

  
 I've added various circle shapes cut from the gel prints as well as words cut from paper in the Untangle collection. I've drawn around the edge of the page, the circles and the words using a fine black Life Of Colour pen.

Happy Life - With Bee Arty!

 Hi Lovelies!

Today I have a scrapbook page to share with you made using the Embrace Change collection from Bee Arty

 
I started with a sheet of heavyweight 350gsm white cardstock that I cut down to 28.5cmx28.5cm. I painted Leather Mica Powder across the page under where my photos would be placed. Then I splattered Leather, Sienna and Bling Mica Powders across the page.
 
 
Next I used the Wreath Stencil with Leather, Sienna and Bling Colour Paste. The random combination of the three colours is cool! 

 
Here is my completed page. 

 
I've matted 2 beach photos on a Grungy Filmstrip die cut on kraft cardstock, then matted onto offcuts from the Embrace Change collection pack paper. I've also added some Grungy Filmstrip die cuts created on bookpaper. 
 
 
I've created embellishment clusters from diecuts created using the Old leaves metal die, Autumn trio metal die and Calendula metal die cut on kraft cardstock, white cardstock, and book paper. Flowers and leaves were fussy cut from the Embrace Change collection pack paper
