Mixed Media Notebook

for this project i used….,13arts end of summer papers Thompsons craft supplies mixed flower collections finnabair metallic wax firebird craft oclock mixed media quotes 2creative embellishments frame, mdf leaves and feathers, hobbilicious stencil elfland, color glow golden calite, finnabair art alchomy paint phoenix feather
from my stash i used black stazon ink, black gesso, white gesso, 3d gel for my glue and some glass bead texture gel, you can make this with 3d gel and just mixing with glass seed beads, the gel will dry clear.
to start with on this project as it is a bound notebook i started by stippling the spine with white gesso and round the edge of the cover, i dried it with my heat gun and then stippled the paint on, no need to do the middle as it will be covered, i did the back in the same way but had to wait till one side was completely dry before doing the second side .
i then cut papers to fit the front only not the spine and slightly smaller. i glued on using my 3d gel and then painted all over with my clear gesso and dried.
i then sponged the orange paint through my stencil randomly over the front and back .
while that was drying i painted my frame with black gesso and then that was stuck on with the 3d gel.
i added some of the bead gel around the book edges and in parts around the frame and dried them.
i then sprinkled some of the colour glow in places and sprayed with water to activate and move the colour around a little and then dried.
i painted my mdf leaves and feathers with the paint and when dry just distressed the edges with black my black ink pad.
i fussy cut a flower collection and a single sun flower and butterfly and layered up the paper pieces and mdf feathers and leaves.and added my butterfly.
i painted my paper pieces with clear gesso and dried.
i then distressed all around the book edge very gently with the black ink pad and then using my finger waxed picking up the beads and the frame detail in parts.
i added my title which i had distressed with the wax.
lastly i watered down a little black gesso on my glass cutting mat and splattered gently all over.
for the back i got as far as the stencilling and adding the colour glow then inked gently with the back round the edges and then picked up detail with the wax but left it without any other embellishments so that it will sit flat.

Oh the projects came so easy with these 13arts papers, just love them.my second DT project for Thompsons craft suppliesa mixed media notebook, i love books and have many, the problem is i write in them all and then cant find what i am looking for because i have so many lol.

Use Your Wings

Use your wings altered tin

i love boxes an tins, i decorate lots of them and eventually find something to use them for,
if not they still look pretty lol
stencil-postcard
from my stash i also used another stencil, a text stamp, and some paper flowers.
firstly i stippled over my tin lid with some gesso, i did it quite thickly as it had some embossing in the centre and i needed to cover it,
i then went over with some white paint,
i took sections of my rice paper and glued them on using gel medium,
when that was dry i went over with the text stamp and randomly put in just tiny bits of the text,
i then added some stencilling with my two different stencils and heavy paste,
when it was all dry i stippled over with some clear gesso, then my wax
lastly i added my title, flower and leaf.
luckily my tin base was pink so i left this along as it matched very well.

Create Art mixed media clipboard

for this project i used….
i also used some heavy paste, a roman numeral stencil, some vintage music paper, my chipboard title from craft box and my other chipboard from scrapiniec. a fabric flower, my frame is the waste from another piece of mdf
firstly i gosso’d my clipboard and some rust paste on the clip but then i changes my mind and went over with the gesso again, i then took some of the designs from my dress my craft rice paper, using a wet paint brush to seperate the designs, doing this allows the fibres to seperate and then you just pull it apart it gives a lovely frayed edge to the paper.
i then placed it onto my clipboard, leaving gaps where i then added some stenciling, firstly with the bonjour stencil and a dark pink paste and then with the roman numeral stencil and  grey paste.
 i gesso’d my frame,
covered some tags with the music paper and some more of the rice paper, i then distressed the tags using some ink and stamps.
nearly forgot i also added an mdf feather gesso’s and a small piece of the rice paper, then inked to distress.
i layered my tags feather and my chipboards, added title.
made a bow with some hand dyed fabric strips and ribbon for the top.
i inked round the edged with some dark pink and then some black , waxed with some silver wax, and then finished with some grey splatters.

Fly- Log Slice Layout

Fly Log Slice Layout.
just love these logs slices they make a lovely and different back ground to work on.
another of my projects for Louise at Thompsons craft supplies
for this project i have used…..
shabby velour vintage green paint
Tim Holtz ideaology- botanical
botanical papers.
Hobbilicious mdf FLY
from my stash i also used some cotton lace, stencil and paste and clear gesso
to start i clear gesso’d my log slice and played with the paint until i was happy with my colours, i then when dry added my paste through a stencil and dried again.
i randomly added my stamp, not the complete stamp just bits in places all over.
i cut my back ground papers to size, distressed the edges with my open scissors and inked to age them.
 i added my lace which had also been aged and layered up my papers using 3d foam pads and gel medium to glue but not right to the edges so that i can tuck other elements under if i want to , i chose several pieces from my ephemera pack and decid’ed on my layout, glued them in place and clear gessod them all.
i then painted my fly with white acrylic paint and finished with some splattering.
