art journal tutorial

Hi Friends,

I am here today to share my step by step tutorial to create an art journal for Rainbow Craftykari Blog.

Step 1:I started by applying a coat of gesso using foam roller brush. It left a grainy textures after drying.


Step 2:I punched the flower shapes out of post it paper, to use as masks. After placing the flower masks on my page, then I used my gelatos to scribble randomly around them.


Step 3:Now i used my fingers to blend the gelatos over the flower around my page. I used pink gelatos around the edges of the flower mask to give a bright look. Then lifted the flower mask


Step 4:I stamped the floral stamp inside the blank flower outline.


 Step 5:To create textures, i stenciled with gesso using Heidi swapp spray stencil and allowed it to dry.

 Step 6:Used a Black marker to draw the outline around the rounds and on the border. Brushed with black water colours over the edges.Stamped with Hot off the press Simply Susan stamp randomly wherever i felt stamping it.

Step 7:Added some sequins and butterfly diecuts. Applied 3d stickles over the diecut


Materials used:

An Art journal note,Faber-Castell Metallic Gelatos Color & Clear Stamp, Sakura Gesso, Black marker, Heidi Swapp Spray Stencil,Monte Marte Foam roller, Golden sequins,Jeff flower punch, Butterfly diecuts and Hot off the Press - Simply Susan stamp

card sketch @sid

Hey crafty friends!!

Today I am here to share a card sketch with you from the Stick It Down Challenge Blog.
Stick It Down is a monthly sketch challenge blog. They provide sketches not only for a card once a month, but also for double and single page layouts! Cool right?? The sketches are normally posted on the first of the month with reveals of the design team's interpretations throughout the month. 
Today the card team designers are showcasing their inspiration of what they created for this month's card sketch.
Here is a look at the second card sketch for August courtesy of Laura:
Here is the card that I created based on the sketch

I applied teal & yellow metallic gelatos randomly over my A2 white card panel and sprinled some water and rubbed with fingers to get  water washed background. Over it i stenciled with honeycomb stencil & watercolours. I stamped out the the altenew wild hisbiscus over a newspaper and fussy cut and adhered to the watercoloured panel. Stamped the sentiment directly on the card pane. I finishes my card with sequins embellishment. Hope it inspired you.
