Art Journal Page with Bling by Susanne

Hi there!

It's Susanne today and I'm sharing an Art Journal step by step tutorial today.


I start by colouring my primed page (gesso) with DecoArt Fluid Acrylics Cobalt Teal Hue and Blue Green Light. I'm using a baby wipe to apply the paints.


While the paint is still wet, I make some marks with a pencil.
I use a piece of scap paper and apply Hansa Yellow Medium. I'm pressing the tag onto my page immediately. The result are some grungy green areas.


I repeat this step with Quinacridone Burnt Orange.


I use a black Faber-Castell Oil Pastel to draw a frame arround my page. I also add some ochre tones with an Oil Pastel.


Now it's time for some BLING! The new WOW! Sparkles are awesome giltters. I used DecoArt Media Gel Medium to add Santorini Glitter in some areas. I also used a black acrylic fineliner to make some more marks.


I add some texture with the script from the new stamp set "Wall Art".
I finish my page by adding my focal point: The bird on a branch. I embossed the bird with WOW! Hot Gossip Glitter and the branch with WOW! Velvet Glitter. The title "Free Bird" are some homemade stickers.


Here are some more close-ups:

Spring mixed media card

Hello, dear friends!
Victoria is on the blog today with some inspiration for our monthly challenge "Spring". Is your spring warm and sunny? We, in Ukraine, have an early spring and warm weather this year and blooming flowers will fill the city soon! So my spring card is very bright and shiny!IэŠ¼Ńƒ made the background using texture paste, stencil, sprays. Also I did some heat embossing with stamps Hearts & Twine andWall Art  sets with WL14R Colour Blend - Yum Yum Bubblegum and WL19R Colour Blend - Oasis.
For embellishing the card I heat embossed few chipboard pieces with WL11R Colour Blend - IrisWL12R Colour Blend - Misty SkyWL14R Colour Blend - Yum Yum BubblegumWL19R Colour Blend - OasisWS145 Fairy Tale powders.
WS145 Fairy Tale is one of my new favs, it is warm gold with holographic glitter and looks amazing!
I am addicted to the new Sparkles glitter, so I used SPRK002 Celebration SPARKLES, SPRK005 Santorini SPARKLESSPRK010 Prom Queen SPARKLES and some beads with clear medium to add more shine to the card.


The back of the card is also decorated with heat embossing and sparkles.

Spring


 
Hello everybody, this is Laurence (laury55) today to show you my project for this month's "Spring" challenge. Spring is usually the time when I start again making projects for my garden and I wanted to feature flowers on my journal page. I first stamped the flower from the WOW Hey little Flower set and repeated stamping with the same flower on my background. I added green watercolor outside the stamped flowers, added more water and let the color run a little bit on my background. I added some die cut as embellishments and heat embossed the letters with WOW Golden Flame.

 
The tag is also heat embossed but with WOW Vanilla White this time. Finally I stamped lines from the Wall Art Stamp set and added WOW Oasis on top.
I hope you will be inspired by this month's theme and join us. You can share your "Spring" project here.

Have fun!

I Love Sparkles


Hello crafty friends I hope you're all well. I can't believe we're nearly at the end of February already, where has this year gone?

Here is my inspiration for this month's "Everything  Sparkly " challenge. I enjoyed this project immensely as I got to have a play with the wonderful new Sparkles range.


For the background of this card I stamped the words from the Wall Art stamp set  in black ink. I then used Peachy Keen and Pumpkin Spice Sparkles on other images from the set to create the rest of the background. Sparkles aren't an embossing powder so you need to stamp your chosen image with an Ultra Slow Drying Ink Pad and use bonding powder over the top. Melt the powder then apply the Sparkles on top while still tacky, simple!


After inking over the background with turquoise ink I stamped hearts from the Hearts & Twine stamp set and used Coral Beach Sparkles on top.


Finally I used Santorini Sparkles on the sentiment from the Mr Wow's Wonderful Words stamp set.

I hope you have as much fun as me using these amazing Sparkles!

Good luck with the challenge,

It Will Show You The Way Altered Box

Hi crafty friends!

It's Fran with you today and I hope you are well and feeling creative. My post today features plenty of bling and shine with this cute box / card combo I created using WOW's new Sparkles glitter.


My substrate was just a plain old gift box I'd saved which I painted with chalk paint. I used Peppermint Stick glitter over stenciling details and added a touch of Perissa embossing powder onto the stones which surround the flowers.



Adding pink and a deep purple inks into the glitter gives a tint and a more blended, softer look to the Sparkles.



Open the box to find a micro greeting card inside! The card is decorated with a heart covered in both Peachy Keen and Prom Queen Sparkles glitter . I softened the heart outline with stones and the Perissa embossing powder which was used on the front of the box.
 

 

I stamped the sides of the box with the lines and brush strokes stamps from WOW's new release Wall Art set. I think they work really well together, creating an almost basket weave pattern.

See how the glitter lifts everything? Just by added small touches of it here and there makes a big difference to projects!


I hope my project today has got your inspiration and creativity flowing!

White Out Resist Background by Susanne

Hi my dear crafty friends.

Susanne here today. A while ago I watched a video by Marion Emberson on the WOW! YouTube channel and I loved what she did. I've never heard about an embossing resist technique with acrylic paint. But it works perfectly and if you use white paint you'll get a wonderful shabby chic look.

Enjoy the video!



Here are some close-ups and detail information:


I used a heart die from Die-Namites and covered it completely with WOW! Perissa powder. The little black heart is embossed with Black Glint powder. The stamp is from the Layered Hearts stamp set. I used the tiny stamps to add a little bit more interest on my old book paper.


This super sparkly heart is cut from a piece of cardstock where I added double sided tape before cutting. I used Fab Foil Gold scraps and the brand new WOW! Sparkles Celebration on the sticky side.


Thank you for stopping by today!
xx Susanne
