Oh so lovely

Hello everyone,

For today's project I have made an art journal spread. I kept it simple this time because sometimes less is more and I love how it turned out.

I had one piece of chipboard from the Flourishes Two set left and thought it would be nice to turn it into a swing for this little girl. I didn't alter the chipboard this time but left it natural. I tied some string on either side to represent her swing ropes. 
The background was made with a piece of pattern paper which I found in my stash. I added some acrylic paint around the edges and behind the girl and also some stamping and doodling. The sentiment was actually the name of the pattern paper, it was printed on the bottom edge and I just cut it off because i thought it suited her. 

I have used this set of chipboards:

Find Peace

There is a lot of truth in the above verbage....
Can I say ~ LIFE can be rough!
But when life becomes difficult I find peace in CREATING!

I have acquired a few new supplies and 
immersed myself in trying them out.

I pulled out several of my UmWowStudio Stencils
Wonky Circle
and my new Gel Press
along with some paint.

I created A LOT of prints
which I chose to tear up and apply
randomly to my artboard.

Then I pulled out a jar of Light & Fluffy
and applied it randonly through

When it was dry, I dropped a bit of Orange
 onto my canvas with a pipette.

Spritzed it with a bit of water to help the color move.

When it was dry I applied a layer of
Vintage Distress Medium.

I brayered on a bit of Spun Sugar
onto one of the Circle Salad stamps
and applied it randomly onto my canvas.

I then applied a layer of
White Gesso over the entire canvas.

I then mixed a bit Multi Medium Matte
with a few Prills and applied randomly to the canvas.

I repeated the technique of dropping a bit of
Caspian Sea onto the canvas and spritzing with water.

I chose the UmWowStudio chippie
which I cut in half to go under my flower cluster.
I also cut up UmWowStudio chippie
and added into my flower cluster.

I finished up my canvas with a quote ~ Great Things
which I stamped onto a piece of TissueStock
and applied it to my canvas.

I hope you enjoyed my creative journey....
I know I found a bit of peace in the process.

Find joy in the ordinary

Hello everyone,

For today's inspiration post I have used one of the new digital images by UmWow Studio. They are fantastic ! I hope you'll check them out ! I have also used one of the stencils AND a chipboard, although I don't know whether that was the right thing to do. I finished the filming and then changed the place of the chipboard but I still think it might have been better without it. I'd like to know what you think.

How gorgeous are these two ! 

Here is the whole AJ spread. It was made in my homemade gel printed book. I learned this technique in a workshop by Birgit Koopsen. 

Anyway, I have filmed the process if you would like to know the AJ pages came together.. 

These are the materials I have used :

Chipboard: Flourishes 2 

Digital : Smiley Sweeties

Stencil : Chunky heart 

Thanks so much for being here today !

Be true

Hello everyone,

and welcome to my blogpost ! I have created a mini canvas for today and have filmed the process of altering the chipboard. I hope you enjoy !

The mini canvas is aprox. 4" x 4" or 10 x 10 cm. I have painted it with acrylic paints and used Faber Castell Big Brush Markers (same as I used on the chipboard) to make the edges darker. 
I then did some stamping and added the dictionary word 'bird' and the word chip by Tim Holtz. 
That was it ! 

Link to the video is below..

You will find this fabulous chipboard HERE

Thank you for stopping by today !

Birthday Card

Hello UmWowStudio friends!

I'm here today to show you how I use the chipboard from UWS in my CAS projects. ;)

I have used a floral flourish brunch. First of all I have covered it with white gesso. After dry I have used alcohol markers to color it. I have used light and dark colors to gives more dimension and naturals.

As least I have covered the chipboard with glossy. Ok, it is not really CAS ;) But you know, you can use the UWS chipboard not only for your emotional mixed media projects. Light and easy projects too... :)

Supplies I used:

Floral Flourisch

Stay creativ!
