Layout for Scrap Matrix DT

Hi everyone, today I would like to share my second project for this months challenge - using AALL and Create products.  

This time I have created a 12 x 12 layout:

I will link all the products that I have used at the bottom of the blog.

I have mused one of my favourite 7 Dots Studio collections - Cotton Candy Dreams.
I have cut up some of the papers and glued them down using Matte medium.  Once they were all adhered I have lighted gone over with a coat of white gesso to blend everything together.

I have then randomly stamped using a variety of AALL and Create Stamps

I have then used a Tim Holtz Dot Fade stencil and texture paste over the top of the stamped areas. 
When this was dry i have adhered my photo mat and emblishments which include Liquid pearls, cut outs from the Cotton Candy Dreams collection and some bling dots.

Here are some close ups:

Products used:

AALL & Create # 56

I hope that this has inspired you to take part in this months challenge.  You have until the end of the month to create a project - layout, card, ATC's, off the page, art journal page - the only requirement - it has a product from AALL & Create and you tag a product (or more!) from the Scrap Matrix Store.  You dont have to have a blog - just upload the photo to the relevant album in the Scrap Matrix Shares facebook page.

Til next time - Happy Crafting :)

Two art journal pages for Scrap Matrix.

Good morning everyone, today I would like to share not one but two projects that I have created for this months AALL & Create challenge at Scrap Matrix.

I recently received as a gift a small Dylusions art journal and couldnt wait to use it.  Because it is small in size (8 x 5) I have decided to create two different pages.

My first page I created was using the AALL & Create Stamp # 81 by Olga Heldwein. I love anything butterfly so had to get this one!  I was that excited that I forgot to do step by step photos!  I did remember on my second page!

I have used Paper Artsy Fresco Paints - China, Smurf and Blue Oyster.

I have stamped the butterfly image onto the art journal as well as a second piece of cardstock.  I then coloured in the butterflies with Vivid Paint and fussy cut them out.  The middle butterfly I also covered with Dimensional Magic.  I have then added a saying that I loved on the left and larger writing on the right. Some doodling and my page was complete - I think I was having a bold and bright day!

My second page I have created is using the stamp #7 by Bipasha BK

I began by painting the page with Dina Wakely paints - Cheddar, Ruby & Sedona
 Blending them with a wet wipe as I went

I have then stamped all over the page with the saying stamp in the set in a grey - I have used the second generation stamping method (stamp the first image onto a scrap of paper and then stamp onto the journal without re-inking the stamp) as I was looking for a very "background" look

I have stamped the feathers onto a separate piece of card stock using a purple stamp pad and fussy cut them out  - I wanted some dark and some light so used the same technique  - second generation stamping.

I have then stamped my head image directly onto the art journal page and adhered the feathers underneath using gel medium.  Once dry I have gone around the edges with a watercolour pencil.

I have encircled the head with the words in the stamp pack and then hand written a quote - 
I have used the saying that I found on the internet as I think this often applies to me LOL

I have also added a stripe of washi tape down the centre to cover the blue paint from the page beside, and inked the edges with Black Distress Crayon.

Here are some close ups - and at the bottom of the blog I have linked the products used to the Scrap Matrix Store.

Well that is all for me today.

I hope that you find time and inspiration to enter our challenge this month.  You do not need to do a blogpost - simply enter you photo into our Scrap Matrix Shares FB page in the relevant album in the photo section - and dont forget to tell us what products you have used that is available at Scrap Matrix.

Two projects for Scrap FX

Hi everyone, Lynn here today and I would like to share with you two projects that I have created.  The first is a cover for my Junk Journal.  I am loving these and this one will focus on family.  I will be having my boys visit me in a couple of weeks and will use the journal to record our time together.

I have painted the back and front of the journal randomly with Marabu Art Spray and added a little water to get them moving

Once the ink was dry I have used the heart insert from the Wild Heart Stencil and black gesso

From this point the fun begins :)   I play with my ink/paint pens - the issue is to know when to stop!

This is the back where you can see I have done from freehand shapes as well as using the paint pens to stamp with.  The pens that I have used were gifted to me by a special dear friend and they are fantastic - they are called a "uni chalk marker"  I was surprised at how well they stamped.  I have used the title "Family" and coloured it with Ranger Perfect Pearls.
I have also done the inside of the cover:

I began with the same technique on the background and used the Wild Heart Stencil, but this time I have used Tim Holtz Chipped Shapphire around the stencil to highlight the background colours.  I have used the paint pens to colour the centre and then add some doodling and stamping.

Here are some more close ups:

My second project for today is a tag that I have created using the Scribbly flower Stamp and Chipboard. 
I have stamped onto some paper that I created with my geli plate and had done alot of doodle marks on.  I then photocopied this paper into small sizes and stamped onto it.  I have loved playing with bright colours today as in Tasmania it has been a gloomy winters day and the colours have brightened me up :)

Here are some close ups:

The saying I have used is from a transparency available in the Scrax FX store.

Art Journal page for Visible Image

Hi everyone, today I have an art journal page that I have created for Visible Image.
I have created the background using alcohol inks and Yupo paper so I have created this out of my mini journal and will insert it in with washi tape.

I have used Ranger Alcohol Inks, Blending Solution and the felt rounds to create the background.  Using Ranger Archival Inks I have stamped randomly on the background and then quickly rubbed the ink off with a soft cloth.  This lifts the alcohol ink off and leaves a ghost lock.

Using Brillance Black Ink I have stamped on the image and saying.

Here are a couple of close ups:
