Art Journal Page for Visible Image

Hi everyone, I would like to share an art journal page that I have made for the Visible Image Design Team

I was inspired by the saying of the New Beginnings stamp

I began by painting some Dylusions paints across the page

I have then painted an area where the faces are going to be.  I have outlined them with a black Stabilo All pencil and created a border using black ink around the entire art journal page.

I have then stamped the Face It stamp and some border stamps around the edges.  On the left to show the past and on the right represents building a future.

I have then added some paint circles to represent the hair which I have stamped using the flower stamp from the Imperfection is Beauty set.

Here are some close ups:

Stamps that I have used are listed below:

Thanks for stopping by and I hope that I have given you some inspiration to get your art journal out and create.   

til next time happy crafting :)

Steampunk canvas and a layout for Scrap fx

Hi Everyone,  today i have  a layout and a steampunk canvas that I have created for Scrap FX Chipboard Design Team.  Firstly the layout - this is using the new chipboard out this month.  I love my garden when the flowers are in bloom.

Here are some close ups:

The paper is 13 arts collection -secret letter.

I have embossed the all the chipboard pieces with Ranger and Lindy Stamp Gang embossing powders

For the inking in the background I have used 13 arts Ayeeda Inks

I have used some 13 arts glitter paint on the leaves

Below is a list of the products available at the Scrap FX Store used in this layout:

For my second project I have created a steampunk canvas - this is the time of the year that my world goes round and round fast (I am in finance) and this canvas reminds me to stop and find the time to create!
I have used a huge supply of canvas, some old buttons, computer screws, micro beads and Finnabair Art Alchemy paints and waxes.  Here are some close ups:

Bag of Numbers
Cogs Mini

Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you have found some inspiration to get creative.

Art Journal page for Visible Image

Today I would like to share an art journal page that I have created for Visible Image Design Team.

I have created a page that leads towards the thought that 'the future is in your hands and not to let the past drag you from your future'.  


I stamped the door (from the stamp set Ahead of our Time) on a separate piece of cardstock and coloured it with Distress Ink and then fussy cut it out.  The people were stamped directly onto the art journal and doodled with a white paint pen

After painting the background with Tim Holtz Distress Paints I have used the Count Me In Stencil and Distress Ink 

The circles are from the Take my Hand stencil and black gesso - again doodling with a white paint pen.

Here is a list of the stamps used and a link to the Visible Image website

Thanks for stopping by and til next time - Happy Crafting

12 x 12 layout for Scrap FX

Good morning,  today I am sharing a layout that I have created for Scrap FX.  I love this picture of my beautiful border collie cross I had 25 years ago.

I have used 13 arts paper from the Secret Letter Collection.  Round the photo area I have stamped, stencilled, embossed and inked using Scrap FX Stamps and stencils listed at the bottom of the blog post.

The chipboard flowers have been embossed with Stampendeous Aged Embossing Enamel and the title in Ranger Fine embossing Powder
