Soiree & Mixed Media



Golden Heart by Agnieszka Bellaidea


I am in love in new Soiree collection and was so happy to create Mixed Media canvas for today's post.
I started from working with paper, gesso and stencils. Washi tape was added randomly in several places and different shapes of papers were added on the top of each other.


The Heart from the laser cut chipboard was painted with gesso and pearlescents.


Foils in gold are special addition on my canvas.


Different papers shapes from dies were stuffed under Vellum papers....


...and couple more photos.

Off The Page With Believe!


Hi there BoBunny fans :)

Today I wanted to share with you the Believe Collection, specifically the Decoupage papers and clear stickers.
Personally I don't usually have a diary or a planner. But last year I forgot some dates of appointments and mixed my nursing roster up a couple of times and thought this was a disaster!  So I bought a diary to write everything in - well I made sure it was butt ugly so I didn't feel guilty about covering it up ;)

I adhered a piece of plain white cardstock over the cover first and then wrapped my decoupage paper around the book cover, just the same as you would do for covering any book. I plastered on some multi-medium matte gel before I applied the paper and then again once it was covered.  A brayer smoothed out any bubbles.

I didn't want too much detail on the front cover because this was going to be thrown in my handbag and handled a lot, so I used the chipboard quote from Mark 9:23 and the Be Happy.  The black strip of paper is taken from the Faith 12 x 12 piece of paper.  The arrows and banner are from the Noteworthy collection, and some doodling pretty much finished it off.

Inside I've used the Believe clear stickers to add detail to different appointments, or activities that I have going on. I've also used coloured pencils to bubble some of those words.

Summer Fun With Misc Me!


Hi!

It's Romy here today and I would like to show you a few pages I made for my Misc Me album. As you may have read earlier on, I use the Misc Me products to create a 'note to self' book full of wonderful quotes and beautiful memories that I have.

Misc Me by Romy Veul


Last month I made four pages about my new year's resolutions. This month I decided to bring some sunshine to the cold month of February, because I'm really looking forward to summer. I used the wonderful Beach Therapy collection mixed up with some bits and pieces from the Calendar Girl Misc Me contents. 


As you can see, I decorated my page with beautiful chipboard pieces and Noteworthy die-cuts from the Beach Therapy collection. I also further adorned my pages with the Summer Fun clear stickers. I especially enjoyed adding these stickers to my photos, because they make such a sweet detail. 



I journaled about how much I love summer and how much I am looking forward to enjoying the sunshine and going to the beach again. The tropical colours and patterns of the Beach Therapy collection definitely made me look forward to summer even more. I cannot wait to start scrapping a few beach photos that I have with this collection.




I also filled the pockets with some of the Beach Paradise Misc Me Pocket Squares. I love these new covers that are just the right size for the smallest journaling cards from the Misc Me packages.

Mixed Media Tutorial With Beach Therapy!


Hello Everyone

It's Denise here today with a tutorial, using Under the Sea stencil and the Beach Therapy Collection.

I started off with some watercolour paper, some gel paste and Under the Sea stencil.

I did not make a solid block of stenciling.  I just narrowed the stenciling, at either ends of the page.

I did 2 sets of stencilling, diagonally across from each other and then dried these off.  I then did the other 2 sets.

Once all the stenciling was done, I allowed this to dry thoroughly.

I then took some sky blue acrylic paint and watered it down with water. Using a spray bottle, I sprayed the stenciling thoroughly before applying the watered down paint.

Just add small drops of acrylic paint at a time and keep spraying water into the drops, so that the paint spreads out and seeps into the paper. You can pick up your page to direct the flow of water and paint.  Keep some paper towels handy to mop up an excess and dab at the little water pools.

I then also added some drops of Frost Glimmer Spray and a little bit of white spray.  I used the white to tone down some of the areas.  This was then all allowed to dry. Below is the result,

Here is a closer look.

To emphasis the stenciling a little more I took some navy ink on a sponge pad and rubbed it over the stenciling.

I cut up some blocks of patterned paper, as per the photo below and cut a strip of vellum.

I stuck these down onto the background.

I then added some random stamping with some blue and aqua pigment inks.

I added some dry wall tape for texture.

Next was to add the wood photo film strip and some cotton.  Admittedly, I later removed the cotton! But that's the beauty of creating...one can add and remove elements.

I then added all the other little bits and my photo.  I always try and stick elements down, so that they are just stuck in the middle.  This then allows me to tuck layers etc. underneath these.

I added some more random stamping around the page and some chevron stamping at the ends of my patterned papers.

Lastly, I used a pen brown koki pen to outline some of the elements.  Then I covered up my photo and the main elements and used some aqua and green acrylic paint and a paintbrush to splatter all over the page.
