Well .... I'm thrilled to be designing again for them this month!
Theses are the new Stencils designed by the incredible Seth Apter... This guy is a freaking genius - check his work out HERE ...
This Stencil is right up my alley .... I freaking LOVE it!
"Best. Stencil. Ever!"
I am a Mark Maker from way back! I LOVE creating different sorts of marks on all my projects and this stencil made it super easy for me to make some awesome marks in my Art Journal!
"I have recently invested in a Dina Wakley Mixed Media Journal and I love the different pages that feature in the Journal – although the hessian pages kinda scare the life out of me! The face part of this stencil was the perfect solution!
I traced around the edge and then cut out the shape – perfect!
Using Heavy Gesso, I used the number portion and repeated it over the hessian before giving it a generous spray with Lindys Stamp Gang Flat Fabio Sprays.
On the next page, I used some fluro paint for my base, then used Distress Oxides and some of the other patterns to create layers.
I finished it off with some stamping and a few words from American Crafts before adding some Gesso over the top for more dimension!"
Today I am sharing a quick and easy Scrapbook Page using the colours from the
September color challenge from Lindys!
This color set was a little challenging for me but the new 7Dots paper was the perfect match and I teamed it with some Imaginarium Designs Chipboard that I could customise to suit!
The paper has a little touch of Blue in it so I wanted to make that pop by adding some Delphinium Turquoise but the Turquoise by itself would be too strong so I added layers under it first.
I started with a coat of clear gesso then once dry, brushed on some Orange Creamsicle. Once dry, I added some Golden Doubloons and allowed it to dry in puddles.
I love that shimmer ... just divine.
Next I added some splatters ... starting with Golden Doubloons then Sandra Dee Sepia and Delphinium Turquoise. It's important to dry each color in between so that they sit as separate colors and not meld together.
I have created a short process video that you can view here.
Here are a few close ups for you .
