"Angel" - Tag

Hello Everyone,

' Tiny Angel' is the theme at Tag Along.

I created the background with broken china and peeled paint distress inks. Then I applied festive berries distress ink through Flower frenzy stencil. Added some text with same colors. And sentiment is "Wish Big". So our angels must be telling us 'to wish big, I will help you to make them true'. :)
This cute lil Angel stamp is of Hot Off Press and Star burst  stamp is from Hero Arts.
Am not sure, is there any difference between Angels and fairies? :)

Art journal with Recycled pages

Hello Everyone,

This journal page is inspired by Julie Balzer, her stencils and Magda's recent blog. Whenever I make any project, there is white paper below that. So it absorbs all extra mediums like, gesso, texture paste, spray inks, acrylic paints, stamps. And creates beautiful backgrounds. And this page is created with all those remained waste! I added some layers with Julie Balzer designed stencils, she is such an inspiration! And then came my doodled bird! I've colored him with Gelatos and PIIT pens.

Gelatos are truly versatile, as they say! On my page, for background, I used Gelatos as watercolors, they resist modeling paste. Next I used text rubber stamp, spritzed water and applied Gelato to stamp, love that dreamy effect. Clock, Birds and Felt letters are also colored with Gelato as dry medium. If you have not tried Gelatos, go for it! They are easy to work with! :)

And after that, I  took out my Brayer  to give nice coat of yellow acrylic paint. Made some blue butterfly images with stencils. And my background was ready.
I stamped the doll in black archival ink, colored her with inks and acrylic paints.
Added some final touches with markers.
Hope you like this page.

How I created the the background here?....
I stamped the different Mango designs on the card with rubber stamps and gesso. Let it dry completely. Then I swiped  Vintage photo and Victorian velvet distress inks on craft sheet and spritzed with water until I get droplets of color. After this I pressed down gesso stamped card into the colors. Dried it again with heat tool. Gesso resist the distress water color. Then Stamped the script onto it with vintage photo.

Art Journal with Recycling

Hello Everyone,

Recycling challenge at Anything But a  card. And I grabbed my paper towel which were dabbed with colors while making other projects. Couple of months back,I had seen this tutorial on You Tube - creating the background with trash.
So after adhering various paper towels to my page, it was looking like this..


And surprisingly, I stuck here, didn't get an idea what to do next...:) Then I read this inspirational thought somewhere (I'll share that lovely website soon) - "If not now then when" and created the page

Do you find any traces of original page ? :)

 Susan Brown encourages us to try green crafting. Its a fun to recycle the things. Hop over to Anything But a Card Blog to see how beautiful projects have come up with the products which destined to bin.

Christmas Mixed Media Art

Hello Everyone,

A Mixed Media Color Challenge has Holiday project theme for month of November and December. And my take...

To start this page, I created texture with texture paste and palette knife. When it dried completely, I applied the layer of gesso. And then I colored with distress paints - barn door and peeled paint. For making a tree, initially I colored it with peeled paint and applied same color distress ink through Crafters workshop stencil Aztec .
