Once I learned how to do the Chalk Art
technique I thought how pretty it might be on a card. Well, 3:15am I woke up with this card all mapped out. Getting inspiration is great however in the middle of the night it can be hard to go back to sleep. All I want to do his head into my craft room and build. The Writing Desk die is a great Christmas card in the making.
The torn edges edge die works in harmony with the writing desk die. I used "both" edges.
I have the old Christmas stamp which is perfect for the this technique and die.
I created this eroded metal on the jar using black soot and antique bronze. I cut mini holly and inked with distress paint pine needles. After I painted pewter for the pen nib I added a little dab of black soot. Then everything is coated in clear rock candy paint. CRACKLE!!!
A simple piece of cream and stamped with a sentiment from Old Fashion Christmas.
Two pieces of 12x12 gives me 6, 4x6 cards.
Seventeen cards down...too many more to go. I hope you like my writing desk card using the chalk art technique. I love how these early morning cards worked out!
Did you miss in the Victorian Carolers? Click HERE to see them. More Christmas cards coming. Maybe they will inspire you:)
It is official... I am addicted to Journaling. This is an inspiration post... why? I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas. I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.
What's new? Well I am stretching my mixed media skills or lack thereof so playing with paints the Baked Texture embossing powders on canvas is really new to me. Keep in mind I am playing and learning as I go.
There is a lot of laying and overlapping of powders.
I recently got a Dylusions Journal to play and experiment with. I am learning to play with Dylusions paints and at this point I'm I am loving it.
Check out my second pages where I throw in the new Seth ApterBaked Texture embossing powders.
See... yummy right!
I stamped my stamps Fallen Blossom and Upstream stamps and embossed with clear embossing powder. Then add the paint.
Blend the colours to create an underwater look then in comes the yummy, cake batter smelling Dirty Sand embossing powder.
Add some black marble paint on the edges and then repeat the same on the top with Deep Sea ep. To create a wispy effect I gently used a paint brush to brush off some powder.
Heat and yum! Load up the bubbles stencil with some fresh lime paint with a sponge.
Spray and layer onto the pages. Trying paint on stamps too and hey it works!
Stamp, add some Big Talk stickers, a little smudging and you're creating layers to a page. BAM! I cut the garden greens, added more paint and coate…
