Pretty Pink Project for Art and Soul Studio

Hello and a BIG WELCOME. Ina here  to show you -

We have a gorgeous feminine Mood Board for February
over at Soul Sisters Facebook site.
There are 3 $50 Vouchers to be won for our
Australian viewers and the chance to be a
Guest Designer for our overseas entries.

I chose to pick a flower from our Mood Photo
and bling up my project.

I started my project by adding Gesso to my base.
Then inking some tissue paper with a script stamp
and scrunching it up as a layer for my flower.
Continued on my background with my 
Stamperia stencil with texture paste 
and adding some grunge stamping.
Smooched with Nuvo Shimmer Powder
and Distress Oxide Peacock Feathers.
Added some plasters tape (dry wall)
to help hold my bling in place.
I then went on to make my pink flower with
Tim Holtz Tattered Floral Dies
with  Nuvo Catherine Wheel Shimmer Powder

After gluing several together I added the centre stamens
and lots of gold glitter.
Sponged it with Nuvo Mousse.
Putting that aside I continued with the background.
Here I had  fun adding some inked tulle,
flowers, prills, beads, diamond dust, 
mini art stones inked with Art Alchemy Emerald Green paint, 
pearls and gold thread.

A few close ups - 

Finished with attaching my flower.

In My Heart-A mixed media layout

Hi everyone
I want to share with you a layout that I have made for Art and Soul studio's February mood board challenge.

This month's mood board is so beautiful and feminine. I hope you will take part in this month's mood board challenge.

Join Art and Soul studio's Soul sisters Facebook group for monthly challenges and chance to win cool prizes.

Let's start our project:

I primed a 12 x12 inches stretched canvas with white gesso. Applied white modeling paste through a stencil.

After drying the modeling paste, I applied Lindy Stamp Gang magicals and activated them with water.

 While the magicals were drying, I fussy cut alot of flowers and leaves from scrapbook paper.
Next I glued the flowers and other embellishments around my focal image.
I finished the layout by adding a bit of background stamping, glitter and art stones.

That's all for now
I hope you liked this layout.

Thank you for visiting
Take care and keep crafting.

February Mood Board Challenge

I really enjoyed the challenge of working with such girly colours. I'm not a big fan of bright pink so i used a softer palette.

February mood board for the art and soul studio.

I started by gluing down this amazing lace and fine cotton material I've had lying around for so long with no idea what to do with it.....Perfect.  I also used wooden cut outs and die cuts, material doileys.

I then used Dina Wakley MEDIA white gesso over the top of the canvas. I did'nt want to make it to thick so i could see the amazing pink underneath.
I also used old keys, a few screws and and this cute plastic vintage clasp.

I used Tim Holtz Distress paint Seedless preserve to highlight various parts of the canvas.

I also used Tim Holtz Distress Paint Mermaid lagoon and tattered rose, with a pink/yellow acrylic paint

I then used LUMIERE Metallic paint 557 HALO-VIOLET-GOLD.

I then added a little of the tattered rose and some white gesso to highlight the keys and the clasp.

I then added some flat back pearls and some pink flat back beads.I also added random blue, purple and pink gems. using white gesso as adhesive and to frame the edge of the canvas.

I also added cute pink flowers and white gesso around the heart. I used a tooth pick to scratch the lines in, as well as little dots around the edge of the heart for more detail.

Thank you very mush for viewing my blog. I enjoyed creating this cute little canvas that is now handing in my young daughters room.

Vintage Art Journal Spread- Make Your Mark by Dutt Preety

Hi friends :) 
Good Morning ! 

Today, I'd like to share a Vintage Art Journal Spread- "Make Your Mark"
I've prepared a step-by-step pictorial of the process :) 

Vintage Art Journal Spread- “Make Your Mark”




Step 1: To build the background, adhered collage paper and few washi tapes using matte gel and then applied clear gesso on top of the pages to prepare them for mixed media work

Step 2: Mixed Modelling Paste with Heavy White Gesso to get a stark white paste

Step 3: Applied the prepared paste through a stencil onto the pages using a palette knife

Step 4: Added colors to the pages using Lindy's Gang gorgeous sprays. Applied the pinks first, dried the pages with a heat tool and then added the blue. Also, created ink splatter with the sprays to have a grungy, worn out, vintage look

Step 5: To give an old, vintage and distressed look to the pages, applied distress inks/oxides to the edges

Step 6: Did background stamping using AAll & Create Stamps.

Step 7: Fussy cut few elements from 7 Dots Studio's beautiful Air Mail Collection. Then collected all the elements for layering including black thread, old stamps, die cuts, old book pages and the fussy cut elements & stickers. Distressed their edges and created a visually pleasing composition and adhered everything down with matte gel. 

Products Used:

Lindy's Gang Spray- Bodacious Blush
Lindy's Gang Spray- Ramblin’ Rose Pink
Lindy's Gang Spray- Black Orchid Silver
Lindy's Gang Spray- Afternoon Delight Denim
