Happy Place on holiday ..

2 gelliprinted backgrounds from me today...  


...with stamped images of the Happy Place stamp set,
the holiday themed ones.

To have them blend in with the background I colored the images with watercolor pencils... 


... and to make them pop even more, I added white touches with an acrylic marker.

My Creative Monday for Magenta - acrylic paint and tissue paper

I LOVE to try new techniques..

.. and onto ATC's with a description on the back makes it easy to categorize them .. 
I share some details of them below the pictures: 

(363)

Paint waterdiluted acrylic paint onto tissue paper, just randomly, and a fairly 'dry' brush.
On this I've used green, red and white. Use part of it for a background.
  

(364)

Fairly the same as the above, but use the paper side (the back) of it for the background. When dry, sponge the edges it with a green distress ink. 


(365)

Paint waterdiluted red acrylic paint onto tissue paper, just randomly, and a fairly 'dry' brush. Leave to dry.
Paint white acrylic paint onto a craftsheet, and dab the paint with the same paper. Use part of it for a background. When dry, sponge it with a green distress ink. 


(366)

Paint waterdiluted red paint onto a craftsheet, and dab the paint with tissue paper. Use part of it for a background. When dry, sponge it with a green distress ink.
  
The flower on all of them has been heat embossed in white and extra color applied with watercolors. 

PS ..(the numbers next to the picture refer to my technique box)...

Rubber Dance Inky Friends collage


These new Inky Friends stamps make me happy.
Apart from flowers I am a real fan of insect stamps too... 

I've made an art journal page for you this time.  


The background? Scribble Neocolors II onto the page, spread the colour by wetting it with water-diluted gesso. Try to do each color with a fresh load of gesso as it will turn muddy otherwise. For interest, add pure gesso in a few spots. 

I've added extra color to the stamped images with the same colors of Neocolors used in the background to make them pop.


As you can see, I chose to use a vertical motion to add the gesso and scribbling.




Let me know whether you'd like a video tutorial on this background technique. 

Have crafty fun..
... and enter our challenge if you'd like to win some rubber goodies from Rubber Dance.
