‘Door to happiness’ – Art journal

Hello there,

Welcome to my blog and follow my work on social media.

I love making journal pages these days and they are super fun. generally I use digital images or stamped images as my focal point but for this page, I am using pattern papers as my focal point. The main image in my page is the door and I have made it interactive. I added a magnet and a hinge, so it opens up and the magnet holds the door together. I have used distress oxide inks for colouring the base of the page.

The page is more of mixed media style and has a lot of elements for depth. I used pattern papers for flowers, leaves and butterflies as well to make the background. I have given a torn effect to the edge of the paper. Pattern papers used are from Papericious – Fleur fun and Glided Onyx

I have a video on how to make this page and below you can find close up of the page.

Welcome to my blog and follow my work on social media.

Book card

Hello there,

Welcome to my blog and follow my work on social media.

Being a cardmaker, I love to experiment with different materials. Today, I decided to try my hands on pattern paper and decided to try making an interactive card – Book card. Its super easy and extremely fun to make. Apart from embellishing the out and the inside book tunnel, I have added a small pocket too where a photo or some personal message can be added. 

Check below for pictures… I will come up with a video tutorial for the same soon.

Mixed media art journal

Hello there,

Welcome to my blog and follow my work HERE.

I am back here with another project for Tubby craft and I have used stencils and dye inks to make this art journal mixed media style. I loved making this project and I went in for a underwater theme and used Precious treasure stamp set. The colours used are Chinese blue, Sapphire blue, Turquoise and Aqua blue. To give more to the background, I added some emerald green and lawn green inks. 

I used texture paste to do some stenciling and heat set it to bring in some rough texture. I used bubble wrap and corrugated part from packing box to do some stamping and also to give some dimension and layers.

Art journaling

Hello there, 

Welcome to my blog and follow my work HERE. 

This is my first take on art journaling and I really enjoyed making this project. I did not have any particular theme but I made it look like a summer theme by adding bright and vivid colours. I chose an image to use for my focal point. What is art jounaling? It is a way to express our thoughts and ideas in the form of art by using different mediums and techniques.

Interactive space cards

Hello everyone,

Today with 3 cards for March challenge where the theme is “Stars, Moon & Galaxy”. This is a fun theme and I loved making these cards. The theme is wonderful and there are lots to make using this theme. Making the backgrounds were my favourite in making these cards. I use My favorite things space and The Paper shelter digi. They are such cute and adorable stamps. 

Materials used:

1. My favourite things – Space explorer

2. The Paper Shelter – Retro space girl

3. Inks

    Distress oxide

    a. Picked raspeberry

    b. Spiced Marmalade

    c. Wilted violet

    d. Faded jeans

    e. Broken China

    Craftyscrappers – Charcoal

4. Lawn Fawn 

    b. Slide on over

5. Cardstock

   a. White

   b. Black

   c. Kraft

6. Double sided adhesive

7. Brad (for reveal wheel)

8. Coin (for slider card)

9. Gem stones

10. Colour pencils to colour images

 CARD 1

This is a very simple card and I used image from MFT – Space explorer. First I inked the background using Spiced marmalade, wilted violet, picked raspberry and broken china. I added the fuzzy cut images and finished the card by adding sentiment and stones. 

CARD 2

This is an interactive card using reveal wheel die set from Lawn fawn and image from The paper Shelter. I die cut the pieces from white card and inked the front panel with wilted violet, faded jeans and spiced marmalade. Using a brad, I secured both the circle die cuts together and added some small pieces of chipboard to the back of the small circle and added that to the base. I used some remaining chipboard around the reveal wheel and added the front to it. To finish the card, I added the images and gemstones.

 CARD 3

This is my last card which is a slider card. I used wilted violet, faded jeans and charcoal ink and spritzed water. I took the slider die and die cut and traced the same in another card stock and added the ink. I used a coin for the slider mechanism and added a small double sided adhesive and added the image. Using chipboard, I added this piece to the card base. To finish the card, I added the sentiment.
