Two Paper Divas~ Dream Big Tag

Good Morning everyone, I'm back to share with you a lil' tag I made for

http://www.twopaperdivas.com/

using Dream Big Sentiment. I just love this sentiment as it's so versatile. 

I got some new Prima Metallic Paints that I wanted to play with and thought "Jo's Bubbles" Stencil from Clarity Stamps was perfect to lend to a dream and galaxy like state.


I started by painting a tag with Black Gesso and then using Ranger Texture Paste thru the stencil. Once Dry, I used the Prima Metallic Paints in the background. Love, love, LOVE the shimmer in these paints and how they change colors on black! I then Stamped the Dream Big
sentiment with Jet Black Archival Ink. Some purple bling and Ribbon finished it off.  Voila! A fun lil' tag!

Thank you for stoppin' by and be sure to join me next Friday to see a fun make using AUGUST'S NEW RELEASES!! Woot! Woot! :o)

Stamplorations~Fun with Masking

http://stamplorations.auctivacommerce.com/


Happy Friday crafty friends, I’m super excited to be sharing my first tutorial post with y’all for STAMPlorations!


 
I got a new mini journal binder, so I cut down some Mixed Media paper to 6.5x5 inches. Here’s my first page.


I started by applying blocks of color to my page using Dylusions paints with a blending tool.



Then using the Some Birds stencil, I applied red paint using only the small birds portion.


Then using the 2 bird masks from the Some Birds stencil set, I went around the masks with black gesso to get full coverage. I rinsed off the masks and then flipped them over and did the same technique. Isn’t that cool? I love how the birds now “POP” against the black.


I outlined the birds in black and then in white Pitt markers and then  stamped the coordinating bird stamps from Trendy Birds 2 . I used archival black ink on the top right and white pigment ink on the bottom right bird. I then added some texture and color to the black with some chalk inks and birds from Trendy Birds 2 and Art Marks stamp set.
 
All that's left to do is hole punch and insert into my new binder. :o)

I have never done this technique before but love the vibrancy of the colors against the black, so think it’s something I would try again.

Stamplorations~ Stencil Sunday 54

Hi everyone! Sharing another project for STAMPlorations Sunday Stencil. The designers have created some fabulous mixed media projects to inspire you. You can find them  here be sure to check them out and leave them some luv! :o)

Today I have a lil' tag for you using Mini Bold Florals ARTplorations Stencil and Big Bloom Factory STAMPlorations stamp set


I started with a #8 Manila Tag and used Versamark Ink thru the Mini Bold Floral ARTplorations Stencil and embossed with White EP. I then used some Distress Inks for pops of color (Dusty Concord, Worn Lipstick and Wild Honey)



I then stamped and embossed several flowers from the Big Bloom Factory onto old dictionary paper. I find this papers allows for great crinkling and shaping. I then went over them with some more Distress Inks.

I then fussy cut them out and layered them together. 

Here's a close-up of the flowers with enamel dot centers:

Two Paper Divas~ Get your READ on...

Good Morning everyone, I'm back to share with you a lil' make I made for


http://www.twopaperdivas.com/
using this month's newly released Doodle Alphabet....LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this set and the adorable A Little Birdie Told Me and String of Stars sets. 

I made a cute lil' magnetic bookmark :o)

  
I started with a piece of Watercolor 140lb Cold Press Paper cut to 3' x15' and scored it at 7.5'.  I then used Distress Inks in Wild Honey, Blue Lagoon, Abandoned Coral and Crushed Olive to create my background. Then I misted thru the TH Typo Stencil with water to create some texture in my background and thought it added to my "READING" theme. lol.


I stamped "READ" with the Doodle Alphabet in Jet Black Archival Ink and paper pieced the birdie from the A Little Birdie Told Me set onto word DP. 
I finished by stamping the String of Stars set in opposite corners and highlighting with a white Signo Gel Pen.


I also did the back
then I added a magnet piece to the inside and covered it with Black Cardstock and voila...a cute magnetic bookmark.


I sure hope I've inspired you to get crafty!
