Sunset Dreams..... by Cindy Porter

Hi everyone, I'm back with you today to share my latest piece for Art and Soul Studio, a water colour painting "Sunset Dreams"


I have been wanting to test out the Ecoline liquid water colours for a while now, and finally had the chance to give them a go...  I loved the vibrancy of their colour and they were wonderful to work with on the watercolour paper...

Art journal page with acrylic paints and Gelatos crayons

Tim Holtz stamps and stencils have always been my inspiration. One  page in my notebook is dedicated to vintage style. I used papers designed by me and I wonderful stencils Crafter's Workshop.

I also used Ranger stamps. The mix media I used is really explosive 😉 since I used Dylusions paints and Gelatos crayons. I mixed the paint with water and I dripped it all over the paper. Gelatos was spread all over the surface by tiny soft make up brush since it's perfect for it.








I used clear gesso.

I used Gelatos and stencil to mae a background.



I glue all elements.


 I spash the paper. I used acrylic paints and water.


I put the stencil heavy body gel and i Used gold foil. 





  I used stamp for make background :)

Wishes - Kristy Abela - Abela Artistry

Hi Soul Sisters, 
My turn to inspire you for this months challenge. I wanted to go with a more romantic take on the Mood Board.  
Before I landed in Wonderland I had to fall... In love!

I used the Alice in Candyland range from 13@rts as my base. I added stencils from Prima and Lindys sprays to highlight the texture. I used some Distress Crayons in Seedless Preserves and Black Soot to highlight the edges of the modelling paste.
I fussy cut the circles to mount my photo and started with just a few... Well, I used all of them..  
I chose some embossing powders from Lindys and selected my embellishments. From Prima, Resin hearts, Lavender collection die cuts (My Playing card was in there) and chipboard from 2Crafty, WOW and Dusty Attic.
Check out some close ups of my Collages.

Falling ... by Tanyalee Kahler



Hi everyone, it's challenge time again! This month I am making a galaxy themed Alice in Wonderland spread. I have created a time-lapse style video, so watch and see how it's done.



I'm using a Moleskine watercolour journal because the pages are really sturdy, and wanted to try out the landscape orientation too.

I used the challenge mood board as inspiration:


The colours I chose didn't quite turn out according to the colour palette, but you get the idea right?

I started off with a watercolour galaxy background which I layered up a couple of times to get the deep galaxy feel.

Then I chose a Jane Davenport collage tissue paper piece and added the lady who represents Alice falling. I also found a playing card and tore the backing off to make it a little more transparent and glued that down.

I finished off the spread with ink splatters, Posca paint marker and fluid acrylic in a fineliner bottle.

I love the fun, spacy result and I hope you enjoyed watching it come together.

One of a kind by Amanda M  

July Challenge

 

Hellooooooo Everyone....
Here is my take on this months challenge.
 
 

I have used my small Jane Davenport Journal 
and glued down some playing cards with mod podge.

 
Then I used a stencil and some crackle paint, 
with a coat of clear gesso when it is dry.


I then layered up the different 
colours of paint using stencils.
Then I added some LSG sprays 
to add a bit of shimmer.


Next I cut out a pic I found online and glued it down,
here are some closeups.
 



I really enjoyed playing around with this project,
Thanx for looking....:)
