Mixed Media Shadow Box with Tim Holtz Die

Hi there!

Today I am on the Rubber Dance blog to remind you on our running theme challenge. It's all about stamped animals this time.
I created a shadow box from the Tim Holtz Tiny Houses die.


My main images are from the Textured Spring stamp set. I combined them with the Tim Holtz Wildflowers, they are cut from left over papers. I used ColourCraft  Brushos to colour the background and WOW! Sparkles for some glamour!


Thank you for stopping by today!

Mixed Media Thoughts #3 - Intuitive Art Journaling Video

Hi there!

It's time for a new video in my series "Mixed Media Thoughts".
I'm sharing some of my intuitive art journal spreads in this series. All videos will NOT be part of any Design Team work. I pick the supplies that I wanna use right in this moment.
Art Journaling is a very big part of my creative life. It means, I find time to get some mental relief, I write down the thoughts or quotes that are imortant for me.
Creating in my journal is also some kind of art practicing. I learn a lot about the different mediums, I am using, and I develope new ideas to use in prospective work.

Of course I will always give you a list of supplies. I know how frustrating it is, if you see a tool in a video and can't find out what it is. You will find the supplies in the video description.

I hope I can give you some inspiration. Art journaling doesn't have to be perfect!!! The result must have a meaning to YOU.
Your body needs movement your soul needs colours, patterns and words - no perfection!

If you are interested in the first video check out the playlist here.

Enjoy the video!

STAMPlorations Typografia CHRISTMAS - Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the STAMplorations Typografia CHRISTMAS Blog Hop!

STAMPlorations has released some awesome Typografia stamps recently and today we want to show you samples with the Christmas themed ones.

https://stamplorations.blogspot.com/2017/10/typografia-christmas-blog-hop.html

Here are my inspirational pieces:

Lets start with a Christmas card. I used the stamp together with Memento Luxe Wedding Dress on some black cardstock to achieve a chalk board look. I love chalkboard and Christmas combined together. 


Matching the chalkboard card I have a chalky gift tag. In addition to the stamped images I used the ARTplorations mini stars stencil for some extra texture.


Last but not least I have a very colourful version of a Christmas tag with kind of a mixed media style. I used bonding powder together with gold foil for this stamped image. The foiled parts act as a resist to any kind of watercolours. So I used Brusho Powders to colour the background. I cut some stars from old book paper to add some more interest to the tag.


I hope you like my pieces. Thank you for stopping by! Have fun hopping along today!

xx Susanne.

Artist Trading Cards with Whales

Hi there!

Recently Rubber Dance released a  new stamp set called Whale Wishes, that I have designed. Before I finished this set I drew lots of whales. Some are painted with watercolours. I scanned them and made myself some printables.

In addition to my printables I used stamps from Rubber Dance.

Art Journal Page Tutorial

Hi there!

It's a long time ago since I've been posting a full tutorial directly on my blog! Today I'd like to share a step by step process for this art journal page:


Here is what I've done:


Add some old book paper with DecoArt Media Matte Medium and cover it with a thin layer of Gesso.



Add DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics to the page. Use a kitchen cloth to add some texture.



Add a little bit more colour. Use a baby wipe to remove it in some areas.



Stamp the tree (stamp comes from Visible Image) onto Tissue paper and adhere it with Gel Medium. Add more texture with stamps directly onto the page with StazOn inks. Finally add some gold Fluid Acrylics.



Add some more colour with Faber-Castell Oil Pastels. Blend the paint with your fingers.



Add a little more stamping to finish it up.



In addition to Visible Image stamps I used stamps from Rubber Dance and Viva Las VegaStamps!.
I hope you like it!
xx Susanne.

Supplies:
DecoArt Media:
Fluid Acrylics (Green Gold, Pyrrole Red, Dioxazine Purple, Gold Metallic)
Matte Medium
Gesso
Stamps:
