Jane DT - Swift Wings Art Journal Page


I am back again today on the Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty Blog with something a little bit different to usual!

For the last couple of years I have been meaning to get into art journaling, and this has meant that I have had in my crafty cupboard a number of journals ready to use.  Although I have done a few pages I haven't really gotten into the flow of using them, so this week I decided to meet two needs in one, getting my large A4 journal started and creating a post for you!!
Here is what I created...

Unless I am creating specific samples with a certain stamp etc. I tend to start all my other projects by deciding which mediums I want to play with rather than an actual idea of the outcome.  So for this I decided that the distress crayons that have been sat in my stash for some time really deserved to have their day!
I started by preparing my page with some white gesso to help with the blending of the crayons, but I applied it with a palette knife to create texture and also leave some areas uncovered.  Then for extra texture I added crackle paste to areas, again using a palette knife and I kept it quite thin for finer crackles...
Next I chose colours from the brightest set of distress crayons (set 1) to add colour across the double page spread.  I applied them one at a time, using the pink, blue and yellow, then creating blends of colour.  Once this had been applied I used the circle stencil by rubbing colour away with a baby wipe...
After that I used the purple from set 2 to add some colour to some of the circles and then a white posca pen to add some details.
Next I used the sunset stencil with black paint and the cracked glass with white paint for some more pattern...
Then I used the new number background stamp and the XL script stamp with black archival ink, and  the bubble wrap backdrop with white paint (I made sure I cleaned my stamp thoroughly straight after!).  I wanted to create lots of layers and interest in my background, and just really added until I was happy...
I still required more so used an old plastic card with white gesso to add some lines to the background and also added some black distress crayon (set 3) around the edges to create a frame.
Then I needed to create my focal images.  I used the Da Vinci Wings, the Feather Wings and one of the keys, stamping them in black Versafine then using clear embossing powder over the top before cutting them all out.  I used a selection of the distress crayons to colour them, adding a little bit of water to blend the colours out.  To add a bit of extra detail I used gold gilding wax on all the pieces, and also added some to the crackled areas of the background...
Once I had stuck the pieces where I wanted on the pages they seemed to blend into the background too much, so I used a black Pitt Pen around the edges, blending it with my finger as I went.
Finally I chose a sentiment that matched my pages and what I wanted it to express.  This was stamped and each word cut out by hand before adding colour with the crayons.  Once stuck down I again added the black pen to highlight the words.
Once this was all done I finished off the page by adding some white dot highlights.
To create my journal pages I used the following products:
* Backdrop Stamp - XL Script
* Backdrop Stamp - Numbers
I hope you have enjoyed seeing my something a bit different, and I am planning to try to keep on with my art journaling now I have got started!!
Happy crafting,
Jane xx

Karen DT- Together we so ROCK

Good morning everyone

Hope you're all well.  As it's Thursday I'm back with my weekly blog for Bee Crafty and today I'm sharing a card I made using the fabulous music stamps..which I have to say I LOVE lol

For this card I used:
Microphone stamp
WORDage stamp: Together we so rock
Soundwaves: Wibble
Dinkable : Sunset
Inkable: Circle easy frame
Distress Oxides: Twisted Citron, Peeled Paint
Black onyx versafine

The distress oxide was blended through the circle easy frame template then Peeled Paint was blended through the Sunset Dinkable.
The template was removed then the Microphone,  Soundwaves and sentiment stamps were all stamped in Black onyx versafine

Such an easy card to make but the look is so effective and can be varied using different shape templates and coloured inks

Thankyou very much for stopping by and I'll be back next Thursday with another Bee Crafty make

Marleen DT - Banksy XL samples

Hello Bloggers..

My turn to share a bit of inspiration for

Bev was on Hochanda last Friday with the Banksy XL's and some fab new goodies. New backdrop stamps, new MDF and new Dinkables.
Find all the goodies in the STORE

Here is my samples, sadly they didnt make it back to the Bee's in time to make the show, but hope they can still provided a bit of inspiration.
 For my first samples I had a play with the skyline stencils and one of the brand new dinkable, the Bats.. Oh how I love this stencil.. Card is simple distress ink through the stencils.

 For this one I made a background using oxide inks and stamped with one of the new Backdrop stamps. I used a couple of MDF cogs, painted with Lustre Luxe to add on top.

Another Oxide background. I stamped my Banksy boy and girl, and then used the Dinkable that looks like a sun to create some shadows around them. I finished using the spotty dinkabel with distress ink.

Another Distress Ink background. I then used the Ghetto blaster boy but I stamped him of the page and repeatedly. I finished with some water splashes and a wee sentiment.

And then there is the new MDF. The doorhangers. I love these.
For both of these I used Lustre Luxe to colour. For the cogs, I used a trick Sam showed on her last Hochanda show. She mixed the colours of Lustre Luxe together. So I decided to try this out and managed to make this stunning brown colour. I used Oxide inks to stamp the subtle backgrounds and I finished with a few bits from my stash.

And that is it for today. Thank you for popping by and for any comments left behind.

Jane DT - Inspired by Banksy samples


Today on the Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty Blog I am sharing my MDF samples that I made for the HOCHANDA shows yesterday...

This project was made using the new key hole door hanger with some of the MDF cogs.  It was painted with metallic paints and the numbers embossed with gold powder.

Here I used the classic shaped door hanger with the XL girl with club embossed with silver powder.  Star D'inkables and number backdrop were used for the background and MDF cogs added.

This was an MDF art board with a coloured acrylic paint background.  A selection of backdrop stamps and D'inkables were used for pattern and texture paste added through both sizes of the Act of Kindness inkable template.

This background was created using texture paste through a brick template, then watered down acrylic paint was dripped from the top in rainbow order.  The alphabet backdrop was added in grey archival ink.  The graffiti stamp was embossed onto heat resistant acetate and added to the wall.  Finally the dog was stamped, cut out and stuck next to wall.

These were a mix of the new door hangers and the different art boards.  They are great for using with a mixture of different mediums and I had great fun creating with them.

The products used were...

* MDF Art Boards
* MDF Cogs
* Set of Backdrops - Textures
* Backdrops - Numbers
* Backdrops - Alphabet
* Inspired by Banksy - Boy with Dog XL
* Inspired by Banksy - Girl with Club XL
* Inspired by Banksy - Greatness Words XL
* Inspired by Banksy - Graffiti Area XL
* Inkable - Act of Kindness
* Selection of D'inkables

Hopefully you were able to see the shows, or else they will be available on rewind on the HOCHANDA website for a couple of weeks.

Happy crafting,

Jane xx

Marleen DT - More Bookmarks

Hello Blogger Friends..

Wednesday again and my turn to share a bit of inspiration for

I have a few more bookmarks to share today.. As I mentioned last week, I had the christmas craft fair coming up and I wanted a few bookmarks to sell as they flew out the door last year. As well as this year.. So I made some using the stamps from BeeCrafty. This time I used Brusho and a selection of the Banksy Stamps. I did also use a selection of stencils from various companies, but check out the Stencils from BeeCrafty, something for everyone.

These have all been made the same way. No magic. Simply just a tag diecut, sprinkled with Brusho's, sprayed with water. Left to dry, Stamped and distress ink through stencils.. Finish with matching ribbon and Voila!!

And that is it for today. Thank you for popping by and for any comments left behind.

Charlee DT - Fleur and Freddie

Morning crafters. Hope you all managed to catch Sam on Thursday with these amazing stamps. These stamps are just so versatile.

This one was made by stamping Fleur and Freddie and then masking them off with some drawing gum. I then stamped the wildflower 3, the moon and the clouds with versafine onyx black. Matt and layered with some red glitter card and black card.

For this one I took the love inkable and blended picked raspberry and wilted violet oxides through. I then took some of the small heart stamps and stamped them through. Fleur and Freddie were masked of on the stamp so I could stamp them separately. I coloured them in with distress ink pens. The hearts where covered in red stickles and then some glossy accents on top.

I covered the MDF heart with lavender quartz lustre luxe. I then used the hearts inkable and stars dinkable and blended through wilted violet oxide. I then stamped Fleur and Freddie and the For You sentiment with memento. I then use some liquid pearls and nuvo drops to "colour" Fleur and Freddie and the hearts. 

With the multi hearts inkable I used some pebeo sand paste. Once it was dry I brushed over all of it with fired brick and black soot oxides. I then painted the hearts with pebeo paint to make them stand out more. I die cut some rectangles with faux stitching. I stamped Fleur and Freddie and the sentiment using versafine. I coloured the hearts in with spectrum nior illustrators and used a white gel pen to pop a highlight in.

I stamped Fleur and Freddie with versafine and masked them off. Using faded jeans oxide I blended through the hearts inkable, honeycomb dinkable and splatter dinkable.

Using flame red lustre luxe I cover the MDF heart. I then used fired brick oxide through the multi hearts inkable. I then sprayed the heart with some spray and sparkle and left it to dry. I used heart die and cut out one in white and a larger size in black. I stamped and coloured Fleur and Freddie with the illustrators. I blended fired brick oxide round the edges of the heart. I stamped out the sentiments in versafine. I then adhered the hearts onto the MDF heart.

I stamped Fleu and Freddie and masked them off with pebeo drawing gum. I then used broken china and faded jeans oxides to blend all over the card. Then with the honeycomb dinkable I blended through broken china oxide, then using the hearts and splatter dinkable I blended through Faded jeans oxides. After I rubbed the drawing gum off I coloured the hearts with the illustrators.

For this one I stamped Fleur and Freddie with memento and coloured them in with the illustrators. I then stamped them onto some scrap paper and cut them out to use as a mask. I then stamped the clouds all over the card, and coloured them in. I then coloured the whole background with the illustrators. On the card blank I stamped the little hearts all round the edges.

I folded some card in half and die cut a heart shaped card out. I stamped and coloured them with the illustrators and blended picked raspberry distress ink round the edges.

For this last one I stamped and coloured Fleur and Freddie with distress ink pens straight onto a card blank. I then masked them off. I blended hickory smoke distress ink through the hearts inkable and the splatter dinkables. Then using the good times sentiment I stamped all over with smokey grey versafine. And then stamped the you are wonderful sentiment in onyx black versafine.

That's all for this week. I hope your inspired and managed to get hold of some Fleur and Freddie stamps.

Until next week
Crafty hugs
