Spring is here - with Irit

 Hello my dear crafty  friends!
Irit is here and this is my Spring ART Journal spread made with a lot(I mean it) of WOW!Embossing Powders and as I am very new to art journalling I just hope you like my work.


First I used some acrylics to cover those pages with a mix of spring colours. Then I added some texture paste with masks using Memory box Modern Flower Power mask and a mix of embossing powders over it.
Powders used are:
Calypso
Opaque Primary Sunny Yellow
Vanilla white
Opaque Pastel Purple
Primary Lemon
Then I added those masked children figures covered with a thick layer of Primary Lemon powder and I even heat embossed them twice to get this 3d look. I used Tando mask to make those figures.


Another Memory box mask was used to make the sun  on the left corner and I added both yellow powders used before and then some  Orange and a bit of Peach Gleam to get this sun look on my page.


As art pages should be flat (we do need to close the journal) I just added the stamped sentiment (stamped over tissue) and a bit of white pen doodling around.
Now it's your turn! Enter our monthly Spring challenge and you can win some lovely products to make your own art page too!
See you next month!

  3. This is just gorgeous!! Incredible bursts of just happy colours. Now I want to get into doing mixed media and art journaling, all I need is to find the time out of thin air!!! lol!! I also need a whole heap of money to afford all the things on the need/want list, which has become the "never ever gonna end" wish list!!! Lol!!

Life's A Beach

Good morning crafty friends, I hope you're all well and getting very creative this month!
As this month's challenge is summer and I live on an island it seemed only natural that my inspiration card would feature sea and sand.
To create my beach scene I started off with a piece of pale blue card and a rubbed a Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad across the top several times. I then sprinkled WOW Peppermint Tea Powder and Under The Sea Glitter over the top, tapped off the excess and melted with a heat tool. I created the sand underneath using Gold Pearl Powder.


For the sea I ran a line of PVA glue in the middle of the sky and sand with my finger, sprinkled with Under The Sea Glitter and melted with a heat tool. For the waves I added small areas of PVA straight from the nib of the bottle when added Opaque White Powder.




The birds and sentiment I have used Opaque British Summer Powder which is one of my favourite new powders, great colour and great name!
Finally, I added beach in…

Handy Stamp Storage Idea

Hello everyone... Happy Tuesday! :D

It's Sarah here with today's blog post created for our Monochromatic theme.




I don't know about you, but I always find I need to use stamps from a mixture of stamp sets and I thought it would be easier if I didn't have to slide each stamp set in and out of the packets all of the time.

I have a bunch of empty CD cases that I had almost thrown out but thankfully I hadn't as they turned out to be the perfect solution! The part that holds the CD easily popped out so I could then position my different stamp sets within them.

I found an old wooden CD box but it had no lid and as all clear acrylic stamps are best stored out of the light, I decided I would make a box lid for it... not just a plain lid though... a Wow Embossed box lid!


Here are brief instructions on how to make it:



STEP ONE

Using pearl silver card, I created a square to the size that I needed (145mm) and added 30mm wide rectangles around the square adding in some t…

IT WASN'T EASY…...

But we did it…..

We managed to choose two fabulously talented ladies out of all the entries we received in our recent Design Team Call and oh boy did we get some entries…. THANK YOU SO MUCH !!!!

It was so hard choosing, there's some seriously creative people out there !!!!

So… who are they ? I hear you ask !!

Drum Roll Please ………..

In no particular order, well, it's alphabetical really, that seemed the fairest way :) :)

We have the FABULOUS Jo Herbert, Jo is sharing her creativity all the way from Australia.


 And the very CREATIVE Riikka Kovasin, Riikka is sharing her creativity from Finland.


They both have a fabulous style, we wouldn't have chosen them otherwise ;) ;) and we're sure you're going to be inspired by them as you are with our other fabulous DT Girlies… #wehavethebestdesignteam
