baby shower art journal

Hi Crafty Friends,

Art journaling - one of my recent addicts and the easiest way to get creating. There is no limit for this space, you can create with any art supplies. Have you ever tried art journaling? I promise that once you start you will be hooked to it. It will give beautiful inspirations when you need it.

My today's page is to give focus to stencil & stamps.

I started by stenciling with Expression stamps Floral & Daisy delight stencils and Ranger distress inks with a blending tool. Then stamped directly on the page with Shopping for my baby stamps from Expression stamps & versa fine ink. You can also stamp on a card stock, fussy cut the images and fix it on the page with 3D foam to get a dimension.

Supplies List:
1. Expression Stencils - Floral
2. Expression Stencil - Daisy Delight
3. Expression stamps - Shopping for my baby Stamp
4. Ranger Distress Inks - Festive berries, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade & Seedless perserves
5. Blending tool & Stamping block

That's it for me!  Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderfully crafty week!

mixed media tutorial

Hi guys! 
I am here today to share a step by step mixed media card tutorial made as part of my DT assignment at Rainbow Craftykari Blog. 

Mixed media art is total fun as there is no criteria fixed and innovation is endless to work with.

The challenge this month at Rainbow Craftykari is a Earthy mood board,I was totally flaunted by the colours. Though it is a tutorial post, i did not want to miss to try my hand with the colour .
Image may contain: indoor

Here is my card.
Here is the tutorial to create this mixed media card.

Step One is to create a base layer for your card, Take the cardstock(for my 4.5"X6" - card base, my cardfront is of 4"X5.5"). Coat a layer of gesso and allow it to dry. Then scrap the edges of the card with knife.

Step Two- is to add depth and variety to your card with paint layers. I have used Camlin fabrica acrlic paints and spray inks for this.

Step three is to add text to your cards now. I have used HLS - thinking of you - script stamp and randomly stamped on the coloured panel.

Step four is to add textures to your cards. i have used Heidi swapp spray stencil and Sakura modeling paste to textures

Step five is to embellish these cards as you desire .I have added stitched oval diecut from Gina k Designs to card panel with foam tape to add dimensions.

Embellishments whicg i have used are Handmade rose from HNDMD flower die, flourish from cherrylynn dies, leaves from altnew wild hibiscus, jute twine, pearl strings, white ribbon & feathers.

Step six is Splatter with black water colour with paint brush 

You are done!
