Art Journal : Crafty Cardmakers - Challenge #238 "Here Comes Summer"

Hello lovelies,
It's an amazing month to join us at Crafty Cardmakers as this time challenge theme is "Here Comes Summer"
As usual anything you care to enter is fine, a card, tag, ATCs, scrapbook, mixed media piece, layout, home decor piece and art journal, as long as it meets the theme.
Here is my art journal with lovely and summery colours. I have used gorgeous shades of Lindy's Stamp Gang - magical shakers along with mixed media supplies from Prima Marketing Inc - Finnabair and sentiment from Tim Holtz Idea-Ology. I have used CrafTreat stencil and Mudra stamps for giving some textures and effects. 

Step by step process:
1. First prepare the page by covering it with white heavy gesso and dry it.
2. Spray some water all over the page and use Lindy's magical shakers (Yodeling Yellow, Lederhosen Laurel and Guten Tag Teal) to create colourful background. Dry it again. 
3. Use stencil (leaves) to create some texture and after drying, do some background stamping as well.
4. Now partially splatter two shades of Lindy's starburst sprays (Hi Maintenance Magenta and Drop Dead Gorgeous Green) to colour some die cut flowers. 
5. Then decorate the page using coloured die cut flowers and use a sentiment from Tim Holtz as well.
6. At the end use black Uni-ball pen for outlining some elements and it's done.
I hope you will like it.
I hope that you are inspired by this month's challenge too. Please join us for this fun challenge and we can't wait to see your lovely creations.
Thanks so much for visiting and leaving lovely comments on my creation. It makes me so happy and I really love reading your comments.

Hello lovelies!!!
I am so excited to announce that I get the privilege of being a Guest Designer on the Creative Artiste Challenge Blog today. 
Their theme for the current challenge #51 is 
I decided to create these Mixed Media ATCs inspired by nature and invite you all to join this month amazing challenge at Creative Artiste.
Here I am sharing easy and quick step by step process:
1) I have trimmed the cardboard into four pieces (2.5 inches x 3.5 inches each card).
2) Covered the all ATC with kitchen napkin using white glue..
3) After drying tied jute twine to all ATC and covered them with Prima-Finnabair Heavy Gesso.
4) Then added Finnabair Mini Art Stones by mixing them with Prima-Finnabair 3D Gloss Gel to create textures on all cards.
5) I have used Finnabair rust effect pastes (Red and Gold) along with Lindy's Stamp Gang magical shakers (Black Forest Black and Bratwurst Brown).
6) After drying added two shades of metallique acrylic paint (Finnabair - Green Olive and ArtZone - Azure Sky).
7) I have used metallique waxes (Finnabair - Vintage Gold and Brushed Iron) and handmade pebbles along with lovely sentiments to finish all ATC.

I hope you will like these ATCs. 
My heartfelt thank you to sweet Andree and Creative Artiste team for giving this amazing opportunity.
I hope that you are inspired by this month's challenge too. Please join us for this fun challenge and I can't wait to see your lovely creations.

Mixed Media Altered Art : CrafTreat - DT Inspiration for July 2019

Hello lovelies!!!
Today I am sharing my DT project - an Altered Mixed Media piece for CrafTreat, which can be used as wall decor. I love making altered projects, it always gives us freedom to use some junks and leftover items.
I have used cardboard (thick one) as base to create this project and glued the ordinary napkin using 3D Gloss Gel to create some textures in the background. I also used CrafTreat chiplets "Gears" with IOD clay embellishments and mixed media supplies from Lindy's Stamp Gang, Prima Marketing Inc, Finnabair and some elements from my stash.





I hope you will like my altered piece.
