Jane DT - Positive Butterflies

Today on the Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty blog I am sharing another art journal page but a very different one to last week!

This time I used an 8" x 8" journal and after applying some clear gesso (as I knew I would be using quite a lot of water) I added some areas of crackle paste with my palette knife and left to dry overnight...

After applying some water across the middle of the page I used sparkle pens to add colour and spritzed them with more water to create a flowing effect.  I dried each colour before adding the next to try to keep the colours separate to some extent!  Then I used some watered down grey acrylic paint to add splatters.  To create extra interest I used archival inks with the multi mini distress diamond and script stamps, keeping the stamping mostly across the coloured areas...

Next I used the regular dots d'inkable with some light texture paste to add extra detail and dimension.  I liked the way that this paste absorbed some of the colour too as it helped to blend it into the page.  The butterflies used are my favourites as I really like the wing shape and I also like having more than one size in the same image to help build pictures in your projects.  I coloured the card first with the same sparkle pens and then stamped over the top with black archival ink.  To make them stand out from the page I went around the edge of each butterfly with a permanent black pen and also used 3D glue gel...

Finally I coloured some more card using the lightest of the pens used and stamped and cut out part of one of the ticker tape sentiments.

Here are the products I used:

* Art Stamps - Birds and Butterflies Set 1
* Art Stamps - Large Birds and Butterflies - Dragonfly and Butterfly Set
* Backdrops - Script XL
* Backdrops - Multi Mini Distress Diamonds
* Wordage - Ticker Tape Stamp Set 1
* D'inkables - Regular Dots
* Archival Ink

I hope you have an enjoyable weekend and happy crafting!

Hi crafters xx

I'm back today with another make over on the

I made a background using my Pixie Powders and left it to dry naturally
I inked through the Mandala 3 Inkable with Wild Honey, Squeezed Lemonade and Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxides 
The skull was stamped in black onyx versafine and heat embossed with clear embossing powder  
I randomly stamped the splatter part of the skull stamp, to add effect, around my Pixie Powders background  
The sentiment was stamped in black onyx versafine and again inked around the edges using the splatters from the skull
I assembled the card to complete 

I hope you like the combination of the pretty Mandala with the fabulous Skull!!

Lorre-Anne DT - Just Because

Hi everyone, for my Bee Crafty blog post this week I'm sharing a card I have made using the Music stamp sets and my much loved Distress Oxides.

What to do
  • Cut black card slightly smaller than the card blank, and white card slightly smaller again.
  • Take the white card, and randomly stamp the stars & soundwaves over the entire piece using the Distress Oxides.  Mat this onto the black card, and glue to the card blank.
  • Take another piece of white card, and stamp the microphone using Versafine ink, cut and mat on to black card.  Glue this to the centre of the card blank at an angle.
  • Take the sentiment stamp and ink up only the words 'Just Because' and stamp this onto white card, cut this out and mat on to black card.  Glue this to the card blank.
That's it for this weeks post, I'll be back next week to share a new card with you all.  Pop past the Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty blog and check out all the fab makes by my lovely teamies.

Hugs, Lorre-Anne x

Jane DT - Dream Catcher


For my project today on the Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty blog I thought I would share another bit of art journaling.

I recently acquired a couple of the gorgeous new mandala stencils and I thought that they would look great as a dream catcher...

I started by preparing a watercolour page in my largest mixed media journal with gesso then used my brayer to add layers of Dylusions paints.  I used vibrant turquoise, fresh lime, lemon zest and bubblegum pink, and made sure that each layer was dry before adding the next.  Then I used stencils to add extra texture using the same colours plus some white gesso (perspective, honeycomb 3 and oval lace)...

Next layer was the stamping with the texture borders and texture circles.  These were used with archival ink which is ideal for adding over paint.  I also used a bit of paint in the centre of the circles to create a more solid feel.

To add extra dimension I used gold sparkle texture paste through the mandala 4 stencil.  Once I had completed this the mandala which was to be the dream catcher did not stand out enough for me, so I re-stencilled it onto some white card.  When that was dry I cut out the shape and added archival black ink around the edges and across some parts of the design.  I also added a punched circle to the centre with a gem for extra decoration...

After this the quill feather was stamped three times and cut out.  These were coloured with some slightly watered down Dylusions paint to match the background.  Once they were put into place I used one of the style wire borders to make extra fronds and also the hanging string...

To tie the page together I added extra black archival ink around the edges of the page to create a frame and then also to some of the sparkle paste to create a slightly more grungy feel.  Splatters of both watered down black and gold paint were also added across the page.

Finally I chose a sentiment that matched the theme which was stamped and cut into pieces before being inked and added to the final project...

To create this page I used the following products...

* Inkables - Mandala 4, Perspective, Honeycomb 3, Oval Lace
* Art Stamps - Quill Feather
Backdrop Borders - Texture Borders
Backdrop Stamps - Texture Circles
* Backdrop Borders - Style Wire Borders
* Wordage - Wake Wonderful
* Dylusions Paints
* Archival Inkpads

I hope you have enjoyed my interpretation of the mandala today!
Thank you for reading and happy crafting,

Jane xx

Emily DT - Feather Tag

Hi everyone,

I have made an MDF tag this week, using some of the feather projects featured on Hochanda a couple of weeks ago with Sam.

Here is what I have made...

I started with a plain MDF tag and coloured it using Distress Oxide inks. I then used one of the feather dinkables and white ink to add a feather at the bottom.

I stamped the quill and nibs in black ink and then added a sentiment in Distress Oxide ink to match the background. I wanted the feather and not the sentiment to be the main focus which I why I stamped the sentiment in the colour ink and not black. 

I added a bit of ribbon to finish the tag off. I am really happy with how it turned out and I hope you like it too.

Make sure to tune in to Hochanda next week, there are some fabulous new stamps coming!
