Sarcastic Art Journal with Distress Oxide

Inspired by the simple things and lots of white this page was made.

Idag är jag inspirerad av de enkla sakerna och mycket vitt utrymme.
Bakgrunden har jag gjort med en blandning av Distress Oxide Sprays och Oxide stämpeldynor. Några stenciler, wasi och Stickers från Tim Holtz tillsammans med ett stämplat motiv från Dina Wakley och sidan ansågs klar. Ja, det är nog som dom säger, ibland behöver “dagboken” göras i bilder… *skratt*

Thankful – Prima Marketing´s “Darcelle”

Hi!
We are enjoying the company of two aunties from Canada. The four of us left our place for a couple of days in Stockholm just before the Corona scare started. We had a blast.
I took some nice photographs and made a layout with the help of Prima Marketings collection “Darcelle”.

Hej!
Vi njuter av sällskapet från två mostrar från Canada. Sällskapet lämnade Lomma och körde till Stockholm några dagar precis innan allt med Corona startade för fullt. Vi hade några härliga dagar. där
Jag tog några fina fotografier och gjorde en layout med hjälp av Prima Marketings fina kollektion “Darcelle”.

I scratched the edges of the papers to get som texture. I really like how that turns out looking.

Jag skapade kanterna på pappret. Jag gillar verkligen hur det ser ut efteråt.

Thanks for stopping by!

Busan .:. Art journaling with Bubble Technique .:. Simple Stories .:. Simple Vintage Garden District

Oh this is a special day! My DD turned 12 today! Happy Birthday dear A – love you to the moon and back!

I made this art journaling spread using the Bubble technique that Vicki Boutin showed in one of her video tutorials. I made it a few weeks back when me and my DT-collegue Karin at CiLi in PAPERS had a cyber-scrap-date. Then I added some heavy gesso to stencils from Vicki Boutin. I stamped also with a few random stamps and the stamps from the Simple Vintage Garden District collection. I decorated with the same – still my favorite collection from Simple Stories.

Idag är ingen vanlig dag, för idag är det Alvas födelsedag! Min älskade dotter fyller 12 år – älskar dig mer än du kan föreställa dig!

Jag har gjort en art journal-sida med en bakgrund gjord med bubbeltekniken som Vicki Boutin visade i en av sina videotutorials och som jag och DT-kollegan på CiLi in PAPERS testade i en cyber-scrap-date. Så kul vi hade! Sen la jag på gesso med stenciler från Vicki Boutin. Jag har stämplat med lite olika stämplar men också med stämpeln som ingår i Simple Vintage Garden District-kollektionen från Simple Stories – älskar den fortfarande!

Art Journal – Colorful on Black Gesso

This one was a bit fun. I started my spread with black gesso this time, wich I don’t do often at all. I played with bright colors and leaved quite a bit of “white space” (in this case the black space) for the eye. I used the thick Impasto Paints from Finnabair/Prima and a white acrylic from Dina Wakley/Ranger.

***************

Det här var lite skoj! Jag började mitt uppslag med svart gesso den här gången, nått som jag väldigt sällan gör. Oftast blir det vit eller clear Gesso. Sedan lekte jag med lite skarpare färger för att få dom att poppa mot det svarta och lämnade ganska mycket “white space” – något som denna gången då blev svart…. Färgerna är Impasto Paints från Finnabair/Prima och Vit akrylfärg från Dina Wakley/Ranger.

Dylusions Creative Journal Small 5X8
Dina Wakley Media Gesso 59ml Tube – Black

Love – layout with Kaisercrafts Grand Bazaar

Hello everybody! Hope you are all well. I’ve been creating with Kaisercrafts Grand Bazaar collection and I keep falling deeper in love with it. The colours are so lovely and I really enjoy the collage look. I found an older photo of me and my youngest goofing around and I liked how it really stands out against the dark turqoise background paper. I used a lot of scraps of paper from my previous layouts with this collection and also the bigger stickers from the stickers book. It is really packed with lots of great stickers, texts and decorations! Great value. Hope you like the look of this and that inspires you to create.

 

Hej alla! Hoppas ni mår bra. Jag har skapat med Kaisercrafts serie Grand Bazaar och måste säga att jag gillar den mer och mer hela tiden. Färgerna är så härliga och jag blir väldigt inspirerad av alla collage-element. Jag hittade en äldre bild på mig och min yngsta son när vi fånar oss med selfies och tyckte den blev fin mot det turkosa bakgrundspappret. Massor av överblivna småbitar papper från mina tidigare projekt med kollektionen blev bra dekoration ihop med massor av stickers från stickersboken. Den är verkligen välfylld med fina klistermärken, texter och dekorationer. Hoppas du gillar och blir inspirerad av min layout.

Layout .:. Bubbles .:. Simple Stories .:. Simple Vintage Garden District

I made a page using the fun Bubbles Technique as shown by Vicki Boutin – Love your art Vicki! I like using good quality acrylic paint to get good distinct visible bubbles so I used paint from Dina Wakley and Dylusions.

I decorated with the Simple Vintage Garden District Collection by Simple Stories – another one of my favorites.

The photo is from last summer at Almedalen which unfortunately will not be on this year. We had a great time with lots of interesting speeches and loads of networking and also getting together with some good friends.

Jag har gjort en layout med Vicki Boutins bubbelteknik – ÄLSKAR Vickis alla underbara idéer! Jag vill helst använda färg med hög kvalitet för att få distinkta och väl synliga bubblor så jag använde färg från Dina Wakley och Dylusions,

Jag har dekorerat med min favvokollektion Simple Vintage Garden District Collection från Simple Stories.

Fotot är från förra sommaren i Almedalen. Det var suprspännande med massor av intressanta föreläsningar, massor av nätverkande och jag lyckades också träffa fina vänner!
