Too glam to give a damn!

 Hello everyone, 

It's Tuesday again and that means another project for AALL & Create from me. I love Miss Dee as you know so I used the, what to me is, the original Miss Dee and by far my favourite! 



I think she is totally fabulous ! 

Here is how I made this card:


I used this stencil to make the background. I used the biggest circle in the stencil. To make sure I only used that circle I taped it off with masking tape. I then just used a blending tool and Distress Inks to make the circles on the paper, making sure to overlap them here and there. I used Mustard Sees, Salty Ocean and Picked Raspberry inks. 


Next I stamped the background using the same inks to get a tone on tone effect and some black. I then toned it down with white paint and a brayer, see next photo.


I added some black ink around the edges of the paper and placed some washi tape for her to stand on and in the top right corner for balance. 


I then stamped Miss Dee on my project and on a piece of card. I also stamped the sentiment I wanted to use. 


And here she is in all her glory!

Stencil:

Stamps:

This week at Vera Lane Studio

 Hello everyone,

Happy Thursday ! For today's project for Vera Lane Studio I have made a 6" x 6" journal page. I have used and older image from the set 'Wanderlust'. 


First I coloured the girl with my Copic Markers and cut her out. I then made the background using an AALL & Create stencil and alcohol inks on the gelli plate. When it was done I thought it was so nice that I didn't really want to add anything to it. So I left it as it was. I cut a circle from vellum with a die to make her stand out a little more, added a stamp and a clippings sticker. 
Lastly I added the sentiment and used a marker to add some shading here and there. 

You'll find this fabulous travelling girl HERE

Be unique

 Hello everyone, 

For today's AALL & Create project I have done another art journal page. This time there is a VIDEO about how I made the background. I didn't film the colouring of the images because it makes the video so long.. 


I do have some photos too:


First I stamped the images I wanted to use as focals. 


As soon as I colour the flowers this bright orange I knew I wanted the background to be turquoise blue. 


Started with texture paste...


Then washi tape. 

I forgot to take more photos after this, BUT there is a video where you can see me make this background, colour and all ! lol

Sweet Sounds

 Hello everyone, 

For today's AALL & Create GDT post I have made an art journal page. I have used one of Bipasha's fabulous music inspired stamps for this. 



Here's how:


I made a gelli print with this stencil and 2 shades of yellow paint. I also put the stencil back on and added a little white paint to the stars. 


I stamped one of the flower stamps of this set along the edges with VersaMark ink and heat embossing them with Ochre coloured embossing powder by WOW. 


Next I stamped the image I wanted to use for my focal point and coloured it with Copic Markers and a touch of pencils here and there. 


I also stamped the image on my page so I had all the little details that are impossible to cut out. 


Next I added some stamping and splatters. I used blue because of the blue flowers on the focal image. 


I then cut out the image and glued it over the top and added the sentiment and some more blue paint splatters. 



I have used:
Stencil #126 - Lotza Stars by Autour de Mwa
Stamps:
#682 - Call The Tune by Bipasha Bk
#457 - Background Voices by Bipasha Bk
#625 - Vine by Tracy Evans
