A notebook

Hello everyone,

and welcome to my blogpost for UmWow Studio, where I am sharing a little book with you. I have recently rediscovered my love of making little books and I couldn't resist to make one for today's post.

This little book was made out of 1 sheet of 12' x 12' paper and I glued some fabric on the outside to give it even more interest and also keep it together. 

Here's what I did to the chipboard:

I started with 2 layers of gesso. 

Next I heat embossed the pod-bit of the chipboard. 

Next I am used a Pitt Big Brush Marker by Faber Castell to colour the top and the stem. 

I added some white details too. 

And here is the finished booklet:

I used an Um Wow Studio stencil and some modelling paste for the front of the book. When the paste was still wet I added som embossing powder and then heated it... 

I have used this Chipboard:

It is called Poppy Pod Skellie and you will find it HERE

I also used this stencil :

This is called Wheat Stencil and you will find it HERE

Thank you for stopping by today !

Born to be wild

Hello everyone,

For my weekly Katzelkraft post I have made a mini journal page.

This was made on a piece of gelli printed paper. I added the white embossed swirls on the right and then stamped and coloured the cat. I did this on a piece of separate paper. I then cut him out and added him to the background. I then added the sentiment (not by Katzelkraft).

I used the following stamps:

Hello everyone,

and Happy Thursday to you !

For my Vera Lane Studio post today, I have used the brand-new Poe ! I think he is very dapper ! I made an art journal page using designer paper by Kaiserkraft. It is from an old collection called "Timeless":

I added some black paint with a pallet knife and then coloured Mr. Poe and his lamp. I also cut out two of the sentiments and a crow. After I'd done all that I assembled everything on my page, shuffled it around until I was happy with the result. 

You'll find Edgar HERE.

Thank you so much for stopping by today !

Beware of dog

Hello everyone,

For today's post for Katzelkraft I have a postcard to share..

I used a piece of Designer paper and stamped it a little. I then added another strip of DP with hearts as a floor for them to stand on. Sidony and the rat were stamped, coloured and cut out. I adhered them to the card and added some shading to ground them. Lastly I doodled a line around the card and added a sentiment. 

I used the following stamps:

He was a dreamer

Hello everyone,

and welcome to my first post for 2018 for VivaLasVegaStamps!  I have made an art journal page:

It had been ages since I used model paste or crackle paste so today was the day to revisit this medium. I had forgotten how much fun it is ! 
Anyway I used an UmWow Studio stencil to add texture with crackle paste. I let it dry naturally because this particular one won't crackle when you use a heat tool. Ask me how I know! :o)
After it was dry I sprayed Lindys sprays in blues and greens over it, starting at the bottom and letting it run over the page to the top. Once I was happy I added some background stamping, not much because there is already a lot going on. The Whimsical Man was stamped on book text, coloured with pencils and cut out. I added a little room under him to be able to stamp the word dreamer after masking off the words 'she was a'. 
The same sentiment was stamped on a blank piece of book paper after masking off just the 's' from she so it says he. 
I adhered both to the page with dimensional tape and then added the page to my journal with Miracle Tape. 

I have used the following stamps/tape:

Don't say I didn't warn you !

Hello everyone,

and Happy Thursday !

I have a mini AJ page for Vera Lane Studio to share today....

This AJ page was made with a piece of a menu from a Fish restaurant which I gelli printed. I then printed and coloured the digital images and put it together. 
The sentiment was typed on my old trusty typewriter. 
I think it turned out really funny ! 

You will find the digital images I used here:
