Light & Flight by DT Ann

 Light & Flight 

By DT Ann 

I love using butterflies, circles & numbers in my creations & this week is no different!! What’s your “go-too” when you’re journaling? It's felt like the light has been switched off, where my mojo is concerned, but persevered, went to my “go-toos” & my new favourite colours, hope you like my page....  

I used: 

Stamps: Birds & Butterfly XL set,  Light Tomorrow, Typewriter Alpha, Texture Boarders & Texture Circles 

Dies: Birds & Butterfly XL die set

Stencils: Regular Dots, Big Ones Bakewell, Texture Disc Set1, Circle

 Distress Oxide Inks Pink Flamingo, Wild Honey & Squeezed Lemonade  

Distress Oxide Sprays in Wild Honey & Pink Flamingo 

Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink 

Texture Paste 

White Pen & Black Gesso 

Clear Embossing Powder 

Dylusions Journal

First spritz both colours of Distress Oxide Sprays onto your page.. 

Next stencil across your page, using some Wild Honey through the Bakewell Big One.

Add some texture paste to opposite corners... for added interest. 

On a separate piece of paper stamp the regular light bulb 3 times & 3 of the mini ones, using Versafine Clair Nocturne. Emboss with clear powder. Colour one of the large light bulbs with the Distress Oxides, I blended out starting with Squeezed Lemonade into Wild Honey & some Pink Flamingo around the edges. Fussy cut the 3 large ones & glue together (this gives  it dimension & stability). 

Colour the mini ones with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide Ink & cover in clear embossing powder, heat & fussy cut out. 

Stamp & clear emboss the Largest butterfly from the Birds & Butterfly XL set & die cut it. 

Your page should now be dryer, stamp the tiny dotty boarder around the edges of your page, to create a frame. Add some circles from the Texture Circles set across your page. 

Add some interest in the background using the texture disc & Circle 6x6 stencil & some Distress Oxide Ink Wild Honey & Pink Flamingo...

Use a selection of numbers from the Typewriter Alpha set in a random row. 

Also add some black gesso through the Regular Dots stencil. 

Glue the large lightbulb to your page, add the butterfly & a small lightbulb as the body of the butterfly. 

Stamp & cut out a sentiment & glue to your page & the other two mini lightbulbs... 

I added an extra circle as one was covered by the lightbulb  :)

Finally add a few doodles to complete your page....

Ranger tag
Pink acrylic paint

Cover the tag in pink acrylic - I used a sponge to evenly pounce the paint on...

Add numeric detail with the metal alpha dink'able and texture paste...

Stamp around the edge the textured design
from the filmstrip circles and texture stamp set, lovely grunge look...

Stamp out the sky terrace and other elements, die cut them out...

Colour with ecolines, I watercoloured with mine for a more subtle look...

All done. Ready to assemble the design... Use 3D silicon glue to stick down. 

All done !

Birds & Butterflies By DT Ann


by DT Ann

I hope you enjoyed the show on Hochanda, here are all my samples, made for the show...   you can watch on Rewind

MDF - birdcages/ clocks 

Products available at :

I covered the cage in crackle paint, when dry I used watered down acrylic paint to colour the cage.  Once dry I glued one of the papers to the back of the cage. Then I stamped & die cut butterflies on acetate, coloured the backs with alcohol pens & glued on to the cage. Added the sentiment. 

This was created using the papers only on a DL Card. 

I used a pale Gelli plate background, then a pale ink to stencil through a mandala Inkable. Then used GellyRoll moonlight pens to add dots. 

I used an old frame .. stamped the Small Words in dark green ink, on to some cream card for the background. Stamped & diecut a butterfly using the same card & ink, then die cut some old book pages with the same butterfly. Glue the centres together ( butterfly) & then onto background in frame. 

Smooshed some Distress Oxides onto the background & added some stencilling with the leaf/branch from the small cage Inkable, starting with pale colours & getting darker. Stencil through the small cage ( Frayed Burlap) & add some pen lines down one side to create depth. Stamp & die cut one each, of the large & small bird... & add a sentiment. 

Gelli print background to start, added Typewriter Alpabet & Small Circles ( from the Stitched Boarder set ) to it, then some lid circles ( dipped in black gesso). When dry I added some doodles in posca black & white pens. Stamped, coloured & die cut the large Swallow. Created a  sentiment using Typewriter Alphabet stamps&  glued to the card . 

Used the papers & die cut a tag, I stuck a couple of extra tag blanks together to add stability. Add some interest with texture discs & Background Stamps in Distress Oxides. Add some doodles & a die cut butterfly with some thread behind it . 

I used Distress Oxide Inks through the Mandala Inkable using Squeezed Lemonade, Crackling Campfire & Spiced Marmalade, I did this 3 times, I then fussy cut each one & layered them using foam pads. Finished with some doodles with GellyRoll pens & a sentiment. 

This one took a long time.. painting the background first using pinks, blues & greens. The I used some texture paste through the branch Inkable & left it to dry. I added some stamping to the background using lots of @beecraftystamps. I created a patina/rustic effect on the 3 clocks. Embossed the MDF butterflues in white, stamped & used gilding flakes on the Swallow then die cut it out.. again I added 3/4 extra layers for stability. 

Last one ... was created using paints, washi tape, stencils & the ledger is in the background.Added some Posca marks & 2 die cut butterflies... Matt & layer onto a 6x6 card.
Any questions please ask ... 

 Thanks for stopping by... Ann x
