Chase your dreams

Hello everyone,

Today I have an art journal page to share and this is it :




and here is how I treated the lovely chipboard kite:


I was going to use some stars as well but decided against it in the end... I will use them for something else sometime. 


First I gessoed everything to get a good base. Also because I was going to use acrylic paint I think it is better to start with a light base. 


These are the colours I used... 


Next I added some shading with Faber Castell Big Brush markers and added some faux stitch lines. 

For the background I used my gelli plate and a Lego piece.. 


I also used a few rubber stamps by VivaLasVegaStamps and a cloud stamp by Lawn Fawn.


This is the chipboard and you'll find it HERE.



Thank you so much for stopping by today !

All of Me by Lynne Forsythe


Hi UmWowStudio Fans!!!!
Thank you for stopping by the blog today.
Have you ever had one of those "THINGS"
Flower....Button.....Chippie
that you just LOVE
but it NEVER seems to "FIT" anywhere.

was just that "thing"


I can't tell you HOW MANY LAYERS
there are on this chippie
paint
embossing powder
more paint
mica flakes
gesso
OR
for how many projects I tried
to use it on.


...and in the end I scrapped most of it all off
exposing the raw chippie.


I added a flower
a bit of painted ivy
a smidge of antique curtian
some tulle


And just the perfect sentiment
to finish off my 'TOVERS tag.



Other Products Used:
Tattered Angels
various Glimmer Mists
Olive Vine Glimmer Glam

Happy where she was

Hello everyone,

It's  my turn on the blog again today and I have an art journal page to share with you.

I have used the Distressed Harlequin Background pieces that I had left over from my last project.


This page was made with a piece of pattern paper by Prima called 'love letter' from the Pastiche collection. I added some 'Old paper' Distress Ink around the edges and collages pieces of an old envelope on it. I bought this in an antique shop and it has a letter too. For now I just used the envelope with the address on it. Next I added some gesso where the chipboard was going to be and  stamped the background randomly for more interest. I then added the stitch lines around the edges with a black marker. 
I added my altered chipboard ( I have made a YouTube tutorial of how I did this; link below)  and some other bits and pieces like cambric and some lace flowers and stuck my photo on top.  Lastly I added the sentiment. 

Here are some close ups: 






This is the chipboard I used. I had some left over pieces from my last project and decided I might as well use them but then in a different way. 

Here is the link to the video tutorial :




Thank you so much for stopping by today !
