Valerie from Texas here ! We don’t feel Fall like others in our state… 90° so far with a lot of humidity and only pecan trees have falling leaves… I miss the coolness and colors of Fall so I decided to create a layout around it :
I started by building the background with stamps that I colored with Colorations sprays in Timeless, Avocado, Rustic and French Toast (you can switch those two for Sandcastle and Warm).
I use the inks in two ways : mixed with water to color the stamped images and add splash of light color on the paper, and splattered over the layout.
This way, you can make any paper match your picture or your embellishments. And if you are using white flowers, you can also spray or paint them with the ink too !
As always, I made a video tutorial so you can watch my creative process here or on the AA YouTube channel :
Thank you for stopping by today ! See you soon for another project…
Valerie today to show you a project where you can have fun with mediums ! You don’t have to be an artist (and I am sure not one when it’s about fine painting…) to play with paints, just the desire to have a good time. Here is the result of my playtime with mediums :
Have you ever tried to use all the stencils from the same stack at once ? That’s what my project is all about today ! Let’s see how I used the Hexi stencil stack…
It’s not THE way of using it, just A way to do so, because you could use them separately or together, aligned or not… I decided to align them for this project, each one with a different medium. I started with the medium Hexi and Glorious Colorations spray, followed by the hollowed Hexi and Tango Velvet, and then the larger Hexi with Dazzle Clear Coat.
Once each coat was dried, I added some Waimea Bay Colorations spray and wipe the excess from the Hexi pattern. You can see that the blue did not go on the Hexi pattern thanks to the clear coat.
A bit of chevron stamp, black alpha stickers, some black on the edges and my journal pages were done !
You can follow my creative process through my video tutorial here or on the Art Anthology YouTube channel (as many of our DT videos…) :
Thank you for your time, I hope this tutorial will help you use the stencil stacks more often !
The beautiful moodboard inspire me this month to decorate a chipboard frame with the deep and luxurious colors of this board :
I kept the petunias in mind to create my flowers and the amber look of the leather jacket. Here is the result :
The base is a blank chipboard frame that I decorated with AA mediums, Colorations spray and stencil… I created the flowers with 7 big flower punches and the Azalea Shine, Grape Shine and DragonFruit Velvet.
