About Me

EXPLORING ART is my thing - I love crafting - Altering things, Mixed-Media, Art Journalling and Card Making.

I would probably say my favourite styles of crafting are vintage, grunge, shabby chic and; Steam Punk.

I hope you will subscribe to my YouTube Channel & my Blog and that you find something to inspire you.

A Question of Love - Art Journal Page

After a long absence from all forms of Art and Crafting (Life get's in the way sometimes). I'm glad to be back and this is my debut post for 2017.

 As February is the month for celebrating Love I decided to make an Art Journal page inspired by Love.

Here are a few photographs and below you can watch my YouTube video where I show how it was created.

I used Spectrum Aquatints in three shades for the background blended with water to give an ombre effect. Once dry I embossed the page with a Texture Embossing folder by Crafter's Companion called "Distress". I lightly sanded this with  a sanding block and then carefully added Antique Linen Distress Ink just over the raised areas.

The stamp set is by Stampendous and called "Hummingbirds" I stamped the two birds and the flower spray onto card, coloured them with Spectrum Noire Sparkle Pens and the flowers with Pebeo Dyna Paint in 354 Irridescent Red Blue.

I cut a heart from a cereal box, painted it also with the Irridescent Red Blue and adhered a generic die-cut from my stash which I coloured gold using a Pentel Hybrid Dual Metallic Gel Pen.

 I printed out the quote and coloured it with a yellow Faber Castel Big Brush Pitt Pen. Cut this into strips. Everything was adhered into place with Liquitex Matt Gel Medium then shaded with a grey IG4 Spectrum Noire Alcohol marker pen and highlighted with a white Sakura Gelly Roll pen.
