happy by Monika


Today I'd like to share my newest art journal page. This small piece of mixed media is my daily reminder to not be complacent, to not limit myself to what I know and am comfortable with, but to look further afield, to be open minded, flexible to fully explore life.

I used two different stencil: Damask & Dahlia and some different chipboards. 

I hope you'll feel inspired ;)

Don't cry over spilt PAINT

HOWDY.....UmWowStudio Fans!!

I wanted to share my latest project with you.
NOW....to tell on myself, this project
was birthed out of the spilling of a bottle of paint onto my craft mat.

You see....the cover on a bottle of Bon Bon Glimmer Glam wasn't secured tightly
and seeped out onto my craft mat.
SOOOO after saving what I could, I grabbed some shipping tags
and sopped up the rest of paint.

....and let the creating begin!

Products Used:
Damask Stencil
Layered Hearts Chippies

Tattered Angels
Glimmer Glam
Bon Bon
Cup Cake

Glimmer Mist

Silver Sugar
Precious Metals

Well hello again!

It's me, back with a new layout.
I surprised myself using shades of brown and kraft, 
I'm really not that type usually! 

On my chipboards, I applied ink directly on it. And then, I embossed it
with the Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel.

So here it is :

Thanks for stopping by and see you next time!

Canvas with Stars by Olga

Hello friends of UmWowStudio!

I wan to share my project with you. This is a canvas and I want to make a birthday calendar from ;)  I'll show you the result later ;)

So check it out!

The canvas is little more than A5.

I have worked with gesso, structure paste, sprays, alcohol inks, crackle paste...

The chipboard was completed in difference forms

I have stamped the images on a tissue and glued on the surface...

And so blink my canvas on the light ;)

I hope, you like it!

Not all who wander are lost.

Hello everyone,

and welcome to another post from me:

For today I have made a mini art journal page and this is what it looks like :

The background was brayered with acrylic paints  The big black circle was made with a coffee mug. I used the rim...and yes I washed it and I am now using it for coffee again ! I painted the inside of the circle with white paint and then stamped with a variety of rubber stamps by VivaLasVegaStamps!

The chipboard I used was treated like this :

This is what it looks like when you take it out of it's package. 

I painted it with gesso, twice.... 

I coloured it with water colours (Prima confections) and added some details with pencils...

This is how it looks all coloured..

I added a layer of clear embossing powder over the top to protect the colours. 

This gnome stamp by VivaLasVegaStamps! is normally holding an umbrella but I just left that out and replaced it with the flower... 

How cute is he ??? 

And here is the finished project again ! 

I have used the flower on the left of this picture... this is a great set ! 

Thank you so much for stopping by today ! 

Until next time !
