Bright Impasto Colors

This is so much fun and joy for me! Playing with bright colors, you can’t be other then happy when you work with them!
I’ve ran over this “technique” for a background several times now, so I thought I would implant this into my art journal.
The Impasto paints from Prima cover great and are a bit thicker than normal acrylic colors, so it’s a great feeling smearing them around with your fingers (ok, I’ll admit – I use gloves… lol).

Det här är så mycket glädje och skoj för mig! Att leka med dessa härligt skarpa färger kan liksom inte göra en annan än glad!
Jag har sprungit över den här “tekniken” att göra en bakgrund nu ett par gånger, så jag tänkte att jag skulle försöka få in den även i min art journal.
Impastofärgerna från prima täcker bra och är lite tjockare än vanlig akryfärg, så det blir en härlig känsla att smeta runt dom med fingrarna (ok, jag erkänner, jag använder handskar…).

Below I have some step by step photos of the process.
Här nedan följer några steg för steg-bilder från skapandet.


Background is made with these lovely four colors.
Bakgrunden är gjord med dessa fyra härliga färger.


Smearing them out in big spots overlapping each other – totally random.
Smeta ut färgerna i stora fläckar som överlappar varandra – lite huller om buller.


Get some structure with stencils.
Dark colors on light spot and vice versa.
Fixa lite struktur med hjälp av stenciler.
Mörk färg på ljus fläck och vice versa.


Fill the background with structure.
Fyll bakgrunden med struktur.


Use a color from the opposite side of the color wheel to add some more structure. Here I’ve also used some white. Then I added the image as a focal pint and the words. A black pen is used to frame it all.
Använd en färg som är på motsatta sidan av färgcirkeln för att tillföra ännu mer struktur. Jag har även tillfört lite vitt. Till sist satte jag dit motivet som en fokuspunkt och texten. En svart penna ramar in helheten.


With this I’ve just made my last page in this art journal! WOW! I started it in September last year in a class for Vicky Papaioannou here in Sweden, and now, less than a year later it’s full! *Happy Dance*
Och med det så har jag precis fyllt min första art journal! WOW! Jag påbörjade den i September förra året på en kurs för Vicky Papaioannou här i Sverige, och nu, mindre än ett år senare så är den alltså full! *Glädjeskutt*

Baseboarddoll Tag- Prima Marketing and Tim Holtz

There is so much inspiration to take everywhere. I get inspiration from colors, nature, film clips, art and also new crafty supplies and colors.  You can also find inspiration from other artist and one of my favorite artists are Kasia Bogatko. So today I have made a tag with inspiration from her. Prima Marketing has a set of tags that works perfects for mixedmedia. A tag in violet and turquoise in the background and I have used Liquid Acrylic Paint. In my focal point I have a baseboard doll from Tim Holtz. Tim Holtz also has these gorgeous wings and these chipboard frames.

Det finns så mycket inspiration att hitta överallt. Jag får inspiration ifrån färger, naturen. filmklipp, tidningar, bilder men även nyheter inom pysselmaterial. Sedan ibland kan man få inspiration från andra skapande männinskor. Kasia Bogatko är en av mina favoriter och idag kommer min inspiration från henne. Så ta och kika vilka fantastiska alster hon skapar. Tagen är en tag i chipboard så den passar utmärkt att göra olika mixedmedia alster på. Liquid Acrylic Paint står för färgsättningen. I mitt fokus har jag baseboard doll från Tim Holtz. De vackra vingarna och chipboard ramarna kommer även dem från Tim Holtz.

Mixedmedia Easter Eggs- Prima and Finnabair

Love this time of years when it is time for Easter eggs. I have decorated three eggs in vintage and grungy style. Fine texture and colors with the liquid acrylic paint from Prima. Have decorated the eggs, with butterflies from Prima and also some small tiny crowns.

Gillar den här tiden på året när man får dekorera ägg till påsken. Tre ägg i vintage stil. Lite diskret yta och äggen är målade med Liquid Acrylic Paint från Prima. Några fjärilar och små guldkronor som dekoration.

Grungy butterflies and on the top of the eggs- these French Regalia Crowns by Frank Garcia match this grungy style. And every egg has some different colors of waxes. To make the eggs different but the same.

Dessa fjärilar och kronor passar stilen som jag vill uppnå. Äggen har lite olika färger av waxer för att göra dem lite mer unika och personliga.

Clear crackle to create extra interest and also some Gilding Flakes from Nuvo to make these golden details on the eggs.

Clear crackle för att skapa lite effekt och har även lagt på lite Gliding Flakes från Nuvo för att skapa lite guldiga detaljer.

The eggs stay on lids from empty colors jars. Glued rhinesstones, painted with black gesso and on that Finnabair wax. And so fun that you can use the lids for some projects. Now, my eggs will have a new home.

Äggen står på tomma lock från tomma färgburkar. Har limmat på några rhinestones, målat över med svart gesso och sedan lite wax på det. Det är så roligt att man kan hitta användnigsområden till sådant som man vanligtvis slänger. Nu ska mina ägg få nya hem.

Happy Easter to you all!

Har pysslat ihop ett album och har använt mig av papper från Kaisercrafts papper- Whisper. En härligt naturlig serie som går i naturstämda färger. Har lagt  på lite Icing Paste in en stencil.
