How to Give a Book a New Life as Bookbox !!

Ellie Knol here again, yes, sadly for the last time now, as I step down from the design team after being here for a year..

…but don’t be sad, there are very talented new design team members already here now!

Thanks Stayce for having me, I really had fun working (playing) with your beautiful product! They will stay in my stash and I am sure I will USE them!

This time I chose to alter a book into a bookbox. It was a looooooot of work!

I gave myself some homework: and I must say: mission accomplished…

I wanted to know whether I like to work on a white or black surface better?! I still don’t know the answer.. I like them both.

 

 I chose to use the colors from the current moodboard:

The bliss of Sorbets and Velvets!

Ellie here today, with FUN!

An easy but so versatile technique: use your acrylic blok to stamp (or smoosh) paint onto paper,
or any other surface for that matter. 

… AND you can actually stamp in the wet paint too! With a script stamp for example!

It’s an all shimmery yummy textural happy background!

The first finished card!

****

The second one:

Only difference with the previous one (except for the color) : I misted the paint ánd the cardstock with water before smoooooooshing.

Lazy days of summer are nearly over!

For more info on the technique itself, please see the Snapguide tutorial I created JUST for you!  

Check out How to Smoosh Sorbet and Velvet Paints by Art Anthology on Snapguide.

  

Guess which one of these two is my favorite?!

Playing with Minx shimmering inks – no 5

Ellie Knol again here today.

I decided to make backgrounds with Minx Shimmering Inks, on all types of paper.

It is really easy, and relaxing to do while enjoying the sun…

As promised, this time I’ll show the ones that had some white heat embossing, gesso and acrylic paint on it before coloring with Minx. Also some on canvas paper.
See the blogpost called
