Scrapbooking layout in red and blue

Hello everyone !

Back with a layout this time, playing with Velvet, stencil and ink for a neutral gender look, as the picture I choose featured my daughter and my nephew… So blue, red and black are my color choices…

After using a chicken wire stamp on the edges of the paper, I applied the Beyond the Reef medium and the Desire Velvet over the Wheel stencil to achieve my background.

The Beyond the Reef medium also colored few of the tags of my layering.

It’s amazing how the color differ with the thickness… when use as paint, I obtained a beautiful water-like blue, and as medium over the stencil, this blue is very deep !

Before layering my papers and picture, I used the Raider Colorations spray to create the small ink spots on my background…

Here is the video tutorial if you want to take a look at my creative process…

Thank you for your time, see you soon for another project…

Hi there!

It’s been a while since I last created an art journal page for you guys so that’s what I have for you today!

For this page I created my own shimmering ink spray! I just put some Sandcastle colorations with Gold dust minx ink and Decadent minx ink in an old spray bottle and added some water. I kept adding the colors until I was happy with the result:

I created a snapguide tutorial for you guys, so you can create this page too if you like 😉

Mixed Media Vintage Frame by Toni

Hi everyone, today we’re going to get a bit grungy.  I purchased a frame at the dollar store and decided I wanted to alter it up. I first added some lace to the frame to give some pretty texture, then I primed the surface with gesso for all my sprays and paints I wanted to add.  I’m  not really a purple kind of girl, but sometimes it’s good to create with something out of your comfort zone… It helps you grow as a creative. This project is filled with layers of lace, mixed media products, papers and embellies.  Just keep layering until you get the look you like… “It’s Artist’s Choice”. I will have a list of products used below. Take a ride to the dollar tree, see what they have that you can alter up. Have fun with your creativity ! For your enjoyment I have included a process video below. xoxo Toni

Products used:

Colorations-Warm, Sedona, Plush, Sandcastle, Raider

Daffodil card with mediums and stencil

Hello everyone !

Here I am again with a different project, still inspired but Spring but in terms of colors this time, and by my favorite artistic movement, the Art Nouveau :

This card was first cut with an electronic machine, but dies can work too…

I use the resist technique with the Art Nouveau stencil and Glass Sorbet, as well as Glorious and Avocado (you can use Granny Smith too) Colorations sprays, on the center part of the card.

Frame, card base and stem were painted in Kelly Green Shine and Shamrock Velvet (you can use Gecko Green Velvet instead).

The flowers were painted with Canary Shine and Dayglow Yellow. The mat was in Dayglow Yellow too.

I just add a sentiment to finish my card…

As usual, here is my video tutorial to guide you to create this card :

Thank you for your time, see you next month for another project…

Have a great day !

Spring Art journal spread

Hello everyone !

March is the first month of Spring and I’m lucky enough to be in the South of U.S., so trees are blossoming and full of birds’ nests again (sorry for those under snow right now…). All this flowering inspired me to create my new art journal spread, using Colorations sprays, Velvet, Shine and Metal Effect…

With strips of asian journal paper over gessoed pages, I sprayed Peacock Feathers and Waimea bay Colorations to start my background.

Some round stamps and cherry blossom stamps in black complete this background, with few of the flowers colored with a white gel pen. I also added strokes of Cotton Velvet to add touches of light .

I used also the Floral Tile stencil with Gold Metal Effect medium before gluing cherry blossom branches (cut with a machine in white paper). The branches were painted in Onyx Shine and the flowers in Cotton Candy Velvet.

I finally added the journaling, written on a white paper strip and painted in Cotton Candy Velvet.

Wanna try art journaling but need a push ? Take a look at my video tutorial for some help with this design…

Thank for your time, and see you soon for another project…

Layout with the new Velvet…

Hello there !

New Velvet have hit the store, and as they are bright, I had to create something with them !

The new mediums weren’t the only things in my DT box, I also found plenty of new stencils and I choose the Double Flower stencil by our DT member Marleen to build my background…

I outlined the stencil with a black pen first, and once done, I used a black Sharpie to fill the lines. I continued with the stencil to create flowers along a down left – upper right diagonal.

Once all the flowers were drawn, I started to paint the inside of the flowers and leaves. Taffy Velvet and Beyond the Reef for the petals, Gecko Green for the leaves and Dayglow Yellow for the pistils.

I then added some Dayglow Yellow on the corners before adding my title, and paint a mat for my picture in the same color.

You can find hereafter (or on the AA YouTube channel) the video tutorial to learn how to create this kind of background :

Thank you for stopping by today and for reading this post ! See you soon for another project…
