Freshly Made 234


Today I played with the Freshly Made Sketch Challenge #234. Very CAS. I love coloring with my Prisma Color Pencils so I had a go at the little bird from Stampin' Up! set #141291 Sale-A-Bration Honeycomb Happiness. I really love this little set. There are 3 images and 3 sentiments. I chose "Hang In There" for my sentiment. Just a little fun coloring on this Saturday afternoon. 

Below is the sketch.


#NOTE -- to stamp my balloon to look as though my bird was holding it, tucked under his wing, I stamped the bird twice. Once on my card face and once on a piece of printer paper. I cut the bird out of the printer paper and used it as a mask. Then I stamped the balloon in place. Then I did all my coloring. Added a little white gel pen for some highlights.

Monochromatic


Monochromatic Mauve shimmer cs. This card is really fun to make. The dies are from Stampin' Up! Botanical Builder Framelits. To start you will need one sheet of 12 x 12 cs. Cut at 4.25" x 11". Score at 5 1/2" and fold. Set aside. Use the remaining cs to die cut 2 of each of the flowers and 2 of the frilly frond. Make your flowers. I adhered with dimensionals. Then I added the pearls from Stampin' Up! This would make a lovely Mother's Day card or even a sympathy card. You can choose any color cs to make this monochromatic card.

Curtain Call Simplicity

Here's my entry for the Curtain Call Challenge which is Simplicity. Stamps are from Penny Black's Butterfly Party and Stampin' Up! Trust God.
I love the Penny Black set because there are 3 tag stamps in the package. Each is a little different butterfly on a different background.
The sentiments from this Stampin' Up! set just really fit when it's time for a little spiritual inspiration. To me butterflies are calming and the sentiments in the Trust God set, go so well with them.

My tag was stamped with Versa Mark onto a scrap of Brusho I made several months ago. Heated some white embossing powder. So a "found object" makes this one pds (pretty darn simple)!

Art Journaling

Although I have been art journaling for several months now, I most recently stumbled upon the beautifully whimiscal work of Rach0113 on yountube. I love what she does!!!! Can't emphasize that nearly enough. You can find her here:

Rach0113 Social Media Links:

I did follow one of her tutorials very carefully. Then I flew off at my own pace with my own designs. I drew ALL -- both of the mushroom houses and the little umbrella by hand. Part of my Zentangle therapy. 
 So without further adue below is my journal page that I've been working on for the past 3 days. Hope you like it.

 The words read "live gently upon this earth". Sorry its hard to read but on this project I used a lot of Colour Arte Silks Acrylic Glazes.
The set I have includes Blue Sky, Pretty Peridot, Jasmine, Spiced Pumpkin, Snap Dragon, Emperor's Gold. In the background the flowers (dots) are all dylusions paints : lemon zest, london blue, squeezed orange, and crushed grape. Clouds were stenciled in with dylusions white linen. The puffy dots are Tulip White Puffy Paint.
Vines and leaves are stenciled in with Stencil Ease stencil paste and the Natural Flourish stencil from Layers of Color. Then I painted over them with the Pretty Peridot Glaze.

Hunkydory


Card I created using Hunkydory Crafts. This card was created using Enchanted Dreams Decoupage Dreams porducts. The colors are simply gorgeous and they add touches of gold here and there for accessories. Lots of bits and pieces to mix into the design. Sentiments are included. Honestly the only thing I added was a couple of my own dies and a couple scrap pieces of SU! cardstock for mattes and dimensionals. These cards can be 3D too! Below is the front of my card.  

Below is the inside of my card. I was even able to elevate elements on the inside of my card!
Sorry I can't make this image any bigger or it will not fit on my blog page. Let's just say, this card measures a generous 5 13/16" x 8 1/4" in size.


There's even enough embellishments to add some glam to the back of your cards!!!

Pan Pastels and Versa Mark Ink

Using the Sweet Florals and Swallowtail stamps from Stampin' Up!

On the first project I used the Sweet Florals stamp. I stamped with Versa Mark on Whisper White cardstock. Then I used the Pan Pastels and the sponges and tools that came with them to dab and smudge colors onto my stamped image. The Versa Mark grabs the pastels. I added some color pencil lines to get a little more detail.


I used the Swallowtail stamp and the Versa Mark and Pan Pastels same way as above. Then I used my black gel pen to identify the Swallowtail's body.


I am sure I will need some kind of fixative or acrylic spray to set the pastels. But I am enjoying this technique so much. It's very relaxing.
