My Garden in an Art Journal

Hello everyone today is my day to share with you an art journal page inspired from my garden. My garden is a rather large one with lots of space I will share a picture or two below with you.

The art journal I have decided to use is a 5 x 7 one which is an awesome size with the stamps I have elected to use which are the beautiful In my Garden set.

I have also used a selection of pink blue and green paint along with gesso the awesome Susan K Weckesseer Stamp Pads (these are just an awesome size)

So how have I created my page firstly I painted the page pink and blue, all very random and every where don't be afraid to use your fingers to smear the paint.

I then let that dry and added some gesso

I then smeared some green paint on the page but forgot to take a picture

So then I took a black stamp pad and the stamps and just randomly stamped all over the page with flowers which I feel is how my garden is lots of randomness.

I then took the awesome Susan K Weckesseer Stamp Pads  and a water colour brush and coloured some of the flowers all very randomly.

this is my finished page

Now to share a picture of my inspiration with you, this was from spring last year.

I hope you have enjoyed my blog post and I will be back later in the month to share another page inspired by my garden

Scrappingclearly July Moodboard

Hi All Kim here today sharing with you the awesome July moodboard, I just love the warmth of the colours in this moodboard.
I have chosen to create a Tag from the colours and warmth of the board

I have drawn the greyness of the winter and the brown of the colour of the images

 I love the silver Heidi Swapp mist I have used to colour the flowers so they appear frosted

I have also used the silver mist to create the colour on the chipboard 

You can see the silver of the mist on the chipboard bird her and the winter feel of the colours

I hope you have enjoyed my share today and stay tuned for some new exiting swap news coming up this week.

Mixed Media and Chipboard

Hello every one and welcome to my design team post. Today I am going to share with you all a page from my art journal page where I have incorporated chipboard to give some depth to the page. I hope that you like my creation.

As you can see from this close up i have left the chipboard raw and allowed the inks paints and spays to colour the chipboard.

I have used 2 flourish boarders and placed them facing each other to frame my word.

This is the whole page  completed

And the final double page  of the journal

I have used the following memory Maze Chipboard on my creation

A little Bit of News

How exciting is to be apart of this amazing team at Susan Weckesser Inc.

Gelato's, Paint, Stamps and Stencil's

Good afyernoon everyone and welcome to my Scrappingclearly DT blog post. Today I am sharing some mixed media creations that have been inspired by Tiare Smith 's amazing work. I have used the the following amazing products from Scrappingclearly's awesome shop Ceramcoat Paint, Gelatos, Dylusions Stamps and The Crafters Work Shop stencils.  

I just love the intensity of the pigment in the Gelato's and the more you layer the colours and blend them the greater the depth of colour achieved.

You can see from the snapshot the depth of the colour.

The small 4" x 4" stencil from The Crafters Workshop is just awesome for art journaling, I have used a white paint pen from Dylusions to highlight around the silhouette and it has just popped it so well and defined the image.   

I have loved the way this page worked and the intensity of it. So many different  stamps also used.

For my second share I have used lots of different paints available from Scrappingclearly I have used Ceramcoat, Dylysions and Dina Wakely's and as you can see they have all blended exceptionally well together. As well as various stamps from the Scrappingclearly range.

On this page I have used all the above products again and just adore how it has all come together. 

I would like to give credit for the inspiration of these pages to the Bad Ass Art journaling classes.

I hope you have enjoyed my share with you for today i will also be sharing my take on the moodboard later today, please come back for another look.

To create this LO you will need the following Robin's Nest products;

1 x sheet of Airplane cardstock
1 x sheet of Rocking Horse Specialty paper
1 x sheet of Spa Canvas stock 
2 x packet of Blue flowers
1 x Title Happy Azure Glitter Chipboard

Take the Rocking Horse specialty paper and distress the edges
Take the airplane paper and cut down to be 11 x 11 and roll the corners and glue in place as per image below.

Take the Blue Flowers and scrunch together and glue then add to the LO as per images above and below.

Take the canvas cardstock and cut a square that is 6 x 6 and add to the centre of the LO then add your photo.

To add the title I just stapled it on below the photo.

A Boys Story is the Best that is Ever Told - Scrappingclearly

Today  I am sharing with on the blog an awesome mini album made with one of Scrappingclearly's acrylic albums. I have used the train and it has worked just perfectly for the photos of my nephew.

These albums are fabulous for using lots of photo's as you will see from mine. I just love how well the Prima metal cogs have worked as wheels

I have also used Hambly overlays and rubon's through out the album, I have also used one of the album pages to cut the shape if my Hambly and papers.

 I just love how the acrylic and hambly lets you see through the album and by cutting your papers to half the size you add another layer of dimension.

They are also an awesome way to use up any stickers you may have. 

 I have also cut my photos smaller and back to back them to add another layer.

 And you can see from this page the Happy sticker is carrying through from the inside front cover and still working with this photo.

I just love how well the elements work like this cog.

And finally the back cover I have used a Hambly rubon as part of the back cover.

Thank you for looking and I hope I have inspired you.

1234567890 Super Star

Hello its Kim again today sharing what I have done with you a layout that I have created using the Mouse Circle Paper Paper and a sheet of Blue Alphabet Stickers from  The Robins Nest.

So how do you get an awesome LO using just 2 pieces of matching paper and a set of alpha stickers, the answer is you simple make sure you can cut the elements on the paper out as embellishments.

So here is my LO and the simple instructions to create it.


So to make this LO you will take a sheet of the Mouse Circle paper and cut a mat to fit your photo using the corner so you have a red boarder along the left and top side of your photo the cut the same from another corner to the the same on the other 2 sides of your photo.

Then from a section of the yellow cut a tag to add to the left hand side of the LO and tuck it under the photo slightly. Then from the remainder of the paper cut out sections of the circles and stars and tuck in around the matted photo as per image of LO. Then add your Title and your LO is finished.

You can see a bit better how I have cut the circle and stars and tucked them in from the below photo.

Thank you for stopping and looking at my LO I hope it has inspired you to create a similar LO

Getting A Little Messy

Morning everyone today Lisa is having a day off posting her mixed media day and has handed the reins to me. I am sharing a page or 2 from my art journal with you that I have created, using many of the mixed media items in the Scrappingclearly Shop.

First up today is a page where i have created a dream catcher I created the background using Dylusions Paints and lots of bits and pieces I had lying around.

I just love who vibrant the colours are of the Dylusion paint it is just amazing. As you can see ihave used lots of bits and pieces to create my catcher.

I am also sharing a page I have created using The Crafters Workshop stencils Glimmer Mists and silk paint paint but you could use the new Prima paints just as well the random stamping adds to the feel of this page and the feeling of depth.

As you can see below i have shadow stamped an image of a person into the stencil body.

And this image just shows how the random mixing stamping paints and mists can work so well togther.

I hope you have enjoyed what I have shared with you today.
Thank you for dropping by Kim.
