Artful Days New Stamp Release Freedom To Create Art Journal

Hi all

Another journal page using the new Girl001 stamp set from Artful Days.

So the background is made with a Gelli Plate, nothing complicated just keep adding paint layers until it looks ok ish. Once dry use the texture stamps on the background and then use a stencil (The Mix) to add more texture. Spray ink over the top and then colour on the girl with markers.

Add the words and it is done.

No Fear Art Journal Page With Brusho Powders

Hi all

I  have a mixed media art journal page to share ro day.

I started off by painting Rose Red Brusho Powder onto the edges of the page and leaving it to dry. Then i added OST Red over the top. Next i took a mini stencil and used black Soft Form Relief Paste over the top. Then i used a brayer to add paint to another mini stencil and stamped the painted side over the page to get the negative imprint of the stencil. 

Once dry i added texture stamps to the page using Red, Orange and Sepia ink. I then used a letter stencil with a marker pen to add the words to the page.

I then stamped out a few flowers and stamped over them with texture stamps before spraying them with the Scarlet Brusho spray.

Thank you for visiting

Altered Nautical Clock

 Hello Crafty friends

I have some texture porn for you today but don't google that phrase because you might find something that can't be unseen. 

And here is is my very rusty nautical clock using the blank MDF clock kits from Samantha K.

I painted the whole thing with navy blue paint as you do and let that dry.

Then i mixed brown and orange acrylic paint together to make a rusty colour. i added orange to the brown and mixed it until i got the right colour. I dabbed it on with a brush and sprinkled on cinnamon powder and then dabbed more paint onto until  i got this crusty layer. Then i dry brushed over the top with bronze paint.

I painted the centre with crackle paste and then used turquoise ink over the top.

i then dyed some cheese clothe and glued that down. Then i added the shells because you can't do nautical without shells.  Remember to leave room for the clock hands so they can move around.

Thank you for visiting

Remember When Blog Hop

Hi all

We are doing a blog hop and the idea is to use something from your stash that is 10 years or more old. So i have chosen the patterned edged scissors which were one of my first craft tools.

Comment on each blog to win a prize:

Anita Scroggins -

I am offering a word stamp from The Blank Page Muse and something i handmade as a prize.

Cover a 6 x 6 blank with purple paper and then cut a strip from black paper.

Use the deckle edged scissors along the edge and then cut a large rectangle from grey paper. Use the torn edge scissors around the edges and ink with dark red ink.

Grue the black strip to the back of the grey piece and then stick it to the card.

Take a topper and use 3D foam tape to secure it to the edge of the card and then add a sentiment.  

Cover a blank 5 x 7 card with black paper.
Glue lace across the bottom of the card to hide where the paper joins. I used two sheets of 6 x 6 paper so i had to cover the card in two parts.
Cut out a large rectangle from purple paper and use the patterened edged scissors around the edges. Ink it in purple and stick it to the centre of the card.
Cut put a wide strip of patterened paper and use the patterened edged scissors around then glue it down the edge of the purple layer.
Add the topper to the centre and a sentiment to finish
