It's worth waiting for - Tusia Lech

Hello folks :)

I created art-journal page, which was an inner must for me :):):) For me art-journal is the most emotional form of expression. I am very emotional person and putting my emotions into colors, shapes and words is something absolutely necessary to me :)



I started with background. At first I used 5 colors of Gelatos. Then I used UmWowStudio Checker Board Mask with Gel Medium on one side and Butterfly Swarm Mask with Inka Gold Metallic Rub on the other.

When it dried, I started adding stamping (7 Dots Studio sets from Cold Country and Illumination collection) with white ink.


Heart String chipboard (which I love) was covered with white and red embossing powder.


I have used also tags (among them 7 Dots Studio Nature Walk) and UmWowStudio Dream a Little Dream badge was a cherry on a top.


Have a great day!!
Tusia

Go LARGE with your UWS Chipboard Shapes!

Hello and Happy Thursday!

Tina here today with a project that is living LARGE!

The Ray Background Chip is one of my UWS favorites!  I have used it on several layouts and you just might see it again in the future.  It's one of those chips that is extremely versatile and is just the perfect touch for any project.

For this layout, I wanted the Chip to be the main embellishment on the page, so the balance of my layout is basically patterned paper and stickers.


I painted the Ray Background chip with a quick coat of gesso, then embossed the entire piece with chucking embossing powder.  It looks simply divine!



Sometimes the simplest technique is the most effective.

I adhered a few of my glittered Butterfly Confetti pieces left over from a previous project for a pop of color and glitz!



So next time you want a BOLD statement on a layout, go LARGE!  :)

Thank you for stopping by!  Have a wonderful week!

Tina

Little Fey

Hi there! It's Miae here to share a page.

I don't normally use florals on my layouts but I'm totally enamored with UmWowStudio's Floral Collection and just had to have a play with them!



I love the variety of shapes and sizes this collection has. To emphasize the two pieces on the page, I gave them texture and used a bright color. I covered the chipboard with gesso then used a spatula to slather a fair amount of acrylic paint mixed with molding paste. Once I glued the chipboard down, I outlined them with Derwent Inktense pencils, spritzed water and painted around them. Love the way they turned out!


I used 7DotsStudio, Messy Head collection as my paper. To alter it, I stamped, painted with watercolors, then used the Hexagon Confetti Mask with acrylic paint to "stamp" areas of the background. The randomness, the texture, again I loved the result! And of course I had to use the Heart Confetti throughout the page since they tied in so nicely with my photo :) I covered them with gesso then colored them with chalk ink.


I used flair from the beautiful Make A Wish set to embellish the focal cluster. A picture of blowing dandelions has such a sweet, magical sentiment. I tied it into the color scheme of the page by covering it with clear gesso and flicking watercolor paint onto it.


Hope you got some inspiration from that! Have a wonderful day......!
