my person | paige evans & silhouette

Hi everyone,  I have a new Layout to share. I started this Layout by cutting out the Hanging Flower Basket on white Cardstock, I resized the CutFile just a tiny bit; I made it a bit smaller.
I knew which photo I wanted to use, so I started to look into the patterned Papers I have and ended up with the 6×6 Paper Pad from Oh my Heart and the 12×12 Paper Pad from Pick me Up.

Because of the bright yellow in the picture I decided to fill the flowers in the basket with a yellow paper from the 12×12 Paper Pad and all of the leaves were filled with smaller papers from the 6×6 paper pad. I chose a gradient paper and filled the bottom leaves with the darkest color, and then it gets brighter and brighter towards the top. I really love how the photo looks in the basket; I also filled the basket with a very light pink paper.

I had a look into a Die Cut pack from Kaisercraft (Wildflower) and added some pink flowers to the basket and I really love how pink works with yellow and the green/blue tones here. To finish this page up I only added a few more things, one Die Cut from Pick Me Up and two sets of Alpha Stickers. The “Lemonade” Chipboard Thickers and the Foam Mini-Alpha “Happy Life

The last thing I’ve added here were some Heidi Swapp Color Shine splatters in gold. I really had fun and I really love how this layout turned out.

Folia | drei 5MinutenKarten

[WERBUNG]
Hallo ihr lieben, heute habe ich ein Set von Karten für euch. Für das heutige Projekt wurden mir von Folia® Produkte zur Verfügung gestellt, vielen Lieben Dank nochmal an dieser Stelle.
Zum einen gab es einen Block „Hot foil Designpapiere“ dazu Wabenpapier und Paper Patches… die Patches erlauben einem schnelles kreieren von kleinen Bastelein… wie hier bei meinen 5 minuten Karten.
foliakarten1

Ich habe mir von den Designpapieren drei ausgesucht mit denen ich etwas machen wollte. Die Federn habe ich von einem der Bögen ausgeschnitten.

foliakarten2

Meine Karten Rohlinge sind alle in A6 zum aufklappen. Die Designpapiere habe ich etwas kleiner zugeschnitten, denn ich wollte den weißen Rand um die bunten Papiere haben. Die erste Karte ist für einen kleinen Abenteurer der dieses Jahr zu Schule kommt. Der kleine fliegende Superhelden-Dachs kam mir da gerade recht.

foliakarten3

Auf den Kartenrohling habe ich noch ein paar Farbspritzer gekleckst und damit der Stern etwas mehr heraus sticht habe ich einen schwarzen Tag darunter geklebt. Mit den beiliegenden 3D Klebepads (Paper Patsches) habe ich ein wenig Dimension auf die Karte bekommen. Ein paar kleine Glitzersternchen und passende Stempel und meine erste 5 minuten Karte ist fertig.
Ich finde es immer gut wenn man schnell ein paar Karten fertig bekommt, denn, wenn ich Karten bastel soll es schnell gehen denn ich mache dann direkt mehr…

foliakarten4

Meine zweite Karte ist etwas aufwendiger denn ich habe das Wabenpapier verwendet und wenn man, wie ich, es zum ersten mal benutzt ist es gut sich die beiliegende Anleitung anzuschauen. Verhindert dumme kleine Fehler.

foliakarten5

Die Basis für meine Karte ist wieder ein Designpapier. Ich habe mir das passende Wabenpapier ausgesucht und 3 kleine Halbkreise ausgeschnitten welche ich dann auf schwarze Wellenkreise geklebt habe. Dazu habe ich den Wellenkreis in der mitte gefaltet und den Wabenpapier Halbkreis eingeklebt. So kann ich es aufklappen und in der mitte kommt das ausgebreitete Wabenpapier zum Vorschein.

Auf der Karten sieht es dann so aus. Es ist eine Einladung zu einer kleinen Party und ich fand die Idee total passend. (Ich überlege aber noch ob ich in den Umschlag 3 kleine 3D Klebepads zu legen mit dem Hinweis die Wellenkreise dann festzukleben… wirkt dann natürlich noch viel besser)

foliakarten8

Auch hier dienten zwei Paper Patches als DekoHilfe… die Farben passen super zu den Designpapieren und die Auswahl ist recht groß. Es ist für jeden was dabei.

foliakarten9

Die letzte Karte ist ebenfalls mit Hilfe von den Paper Patsches und dem Designpapier entstanden. Hier habe ich die ausgeschnittenen Feder verwendet. Mit 3D Klebepads unterhalb des Kreises angebracht wirkt es etwas wie ein Dreamcatcher, oder?

foliakarten10

Auf dem Foto seht ihr noch andere Patches, ich konnte mich erst nicht entscheiden… Aber der Kreis gefiel dann auf dem Papier und zusammen mit den Federn am besten.

foliakarten11

Für etwas Abwechslung habe ich noch Nähgarn unter den Kreis geklebt… und die letzte Karte ist ebenfalls fertig zum verschicken.
Zu dem Wabenpapier habe ich noch weitere Ideen, die ich auch dann an einem anderen Tag mal zeigen werde

Vielen Dank für´s vorbei schauen

Hallo ihr lieben heute nur ein kleiner Beitrag zum #verrücktensommer von mir.
Ich liege seit Montag flach, mit einem fetten Kniegelenkerguss, ich war schon zum punktieren aber geholfen hat das nicht. Anstatt den Sommer mit meinen Jungs zu genießen bin ich nun erstmal krank 😦 Aber immer schön positiv bleiben, richtig?!
Deswegen gibt es heute eine sommerliche mixed media Seite mit verstecktem Journaling in Farben die mich an einen Cocktail erinnern oder zumindestens an ein paar Zutaten…

Mein Material heute

Bei dieser Seite habe ich das erste mal mit dem DecoFoil Stift und Folien sowie den Dylusions Paints gearbeitet, beides wirklich tolle Sachen…

Art Journal | #verrücktersommer

[werbung]

Hallo ihr lieben, heute gibt es also mein ArtJournal, mein Beitrag zum #verrücktensommer mit und bei Alexandra Renke.
Die Idee für mein Album kam mir beim schauen von Kathleen´s Video, sie hat diese einfach „Bindung“ gezeigt, aber das End-Produkt gibt echt was her. Und im Grunde genommen geht es ja auch um das was hineinkommt, richtig?

ajcover

Das ist es also, mein Sommer 2018 Album. Ich bin zeimlich happy über den Rohling und freue mich sehr auf´s füllen…
Hier gibt es jetzt ein kleines Video – die Herstellung vom Album

Aber ich habe natürlich auch noch eine kleine schriftliche Anleitung für euch, wobei es wirklich simple ist. Erst aber mal ein paar Bilder von meiner KreativBox und dem Inhalt… und einige Bilder von den ersten leeren Seiten in meinem Album.

materialsneak

und ein close up von den Papieren, BIG LOVE!
papiersneak

ajcoversneak

Das Papier mit den Zitronen hat es mir echt angetan, in Kombination mit dem Sisal Gras und den DieCuts ein echter Hingucker, oder? Das Papier mit den farben habe ich selber erstellt, im Video seht ihr auch welche Materialien ich benutzt habe.

ajsneakajsneak2

Ich habe verschiedene Papiere benutzt, alte Buch Seiten, Tags, Vellum… DieCuts, ausgeschnittene Teile aus den Papieren…

Das Album besteht quasi nur aus 3 Teilen und den Buchringen – ich habe aber mein Cover noch mit CreaPop Folie (o,5mm) verstärkt. Für das Mittelteil habe ich beschichtete Baumwolle verwendet. Ich wollte etwas das flexibel ist und 1000 mal auf und zugemacht werden kann ohne das etwas bricht oder reißt, da kam mir die Idee zu dem Material und ich find es gut so.
sneak

Wenn ihr also dieses Album genau so herstellen wollt braucht ihr:

2 mal Papier/Cardstock in 5″ x 7″ oder 12,6cm x 17,7cm
1 mal 1,4″ x 7″ oder 3,7cm x 17,7cm (mittlerer Teil, da wo die Ringe reinkommen)
1 mal 2,3″ x 7″ oder 6,2cm x 17,7cm (kleine Einsteck Tasche/Innenseite vom Cover)
evtl. CreaPop Folie in den gleichen Maßen und Buchringe.
Lochzange
doppelseitiges Klebenband
Dekoration für das Cover

Wenn mein Album größer geworden wäre, hätte ich mindestens 3 Ringe verwendet, aber bei der Höhe sind 2 absolut ausreichend.

Ja, das war es im Grunde genommen für heute. Ich werde euch immer mal wieder mit neuen fertigen Seiten versorgen. Es wird bunt und viel MixedMedia geben… verschiedene Farben und Materialien, hach, ich freu mich drauf!

Schaut mal hier vorbei, da findet ihr weitere tolle ArtJournals von den anderen Mädels aus dem Sommerteam – Roter Faden

gesso & watercolors | vicki boutin

[werbung]
Hi everyone, Jana here with you today. I have a new Layout to share. This page started with a picture. I was sorting through my photos and found two cute ones from my oldest son, when he was 5 or 6 years old. He was climbing in the trees, one of his favorite’s hobbies when he was little. I saw the picture and was thinking on a CutFile I have, a tree trunk. I immediately had to think about painting the tree trunk with gesso and watercolor/Art Crayons.

#7goodtimes-complete

Here you can see some of my Supplies for today; Perfect Gesso, Foundation Paper and Art Crayons. But I will also bring in some Watercolors, Junque Journal Mixed Media Paper and some stamps.

#1goodtimes-supplies

So, I started this page by cutting three of the tree trunk shape with my Cameo. I was not sure about layering or using different colors together. The white cut got a thick layer of Gesso. Irregular so it gets some texture right away. I also painted a Junque Journal Mixed Media Paper with Gesso because I wanted to try some Watercolors/Art Crayons on it.

#2gootimes-gesso

I decided to use five different brown tones for my painting. I grabbed a piece of plastic and added watercolors and art crayons to it, mixed with some water, ready to paint.

#3goodtimes-colors

But before I started I wanted to stamp or bring the colors on the Junque Journal Page. I just wanted to try and see how the colors are changing with more or less water. Sometimes this can be very helpful, especially if you are using the colors for the first time or on other backgrounds or materials as usual.

#4goodtimes-gessostamped

I really love how the colors are looking together and due to the different covering power, it looks alive and not flat. Now I knew how the colors are looking and was pretty sure that I wanted my tree trunk in these colors. I started with the outer area, in dark brown. Up to the inside I was getting brighter with the colors and used more water. But I have used several layers of color and at the end I have added splashes of paint. I am so happy how this turned out. I also loved the negative from the tree trunk so I wanted to use it too. I loosely cut around the shape and layered it under the original piece. Love how this is looking! I added some stitches with my sewing machine.

#5goodtimes-finished

I already knew in advance that I did not want to use much decoration next to the photo. I punched out some butterflies from various VB papers and a thin paper bag and sewed them together with the sewing machine. I wanted to have the tree trunk as my main focus on this Layout.

#6goodtimes-butterflies

I added two pieces from the Frames Pack to my picture and because I had no Idea what to add next I decided to punch out some leaves from one of the 7×10 Paper Pad. I put some of the leaves under the butterfly; the others are lying around on the paper almost loosely. My title is a mix from the Chipboard Alpha and the Foam Words…

#8goodtimes-complete

My final touch here, I adapted my journaling to the contours of the tree trunk.

#9goodtimes-complete

I really had fun here and I am totally happy about this layout.

Junque Journal Summer School/Camp Vicki Boutin

[werbung]
Hello everyone, Jana here today. Have you heard from Vicki´s Junque Journal Summer Camp Challenge?! It is a fun event about your Junque Journal. June is our “warm up” month with a lot of mixed media basics to learn. Vicki posted a list with 30 Prompts in our “Vicki Boutin Mixed Media Community”

You can jump right in, you don´t need to follow the prompts in any order. Grab what you like and start playing! This is what Vicki said… “This is a GOOD PLACE TO START. Do all of them – do some. Do them daily or do 5 in one day. Do them on separate pages or add multiple prompts to one project. Do it your way. Do it for you. Just try something…you won’t regret it!”
So, let´s just start with my pages for the Summer Camp. I´ve done some pages in my Junque Journal so far but I never made some color swatches. I grabbed all of my Vicki Boutin Medias and started to swatch them on the re-fill pages (Watercolor Paper & Mixed Media Paper) for the Junque Journal.
I started with the Arty Crayons (Warm and Cold Set); wet on a Paper I’ve primed with the Matte Acrylic Gel. I just scribbled down a bit of the Crayon and painted with a wet brush over it. I also added some “running” lines to the little square.

1#artcrayon-wet-mattegel

For the second page I primed the paper with white Gesso and added the Art Crayons dry, with a Brush through a stencil. I also went in the middle with a wet brush to smudge the color around and to add some splatters.

2#artcrayons-dry-brush-gesso

The next technique is awesome. I used a palette knife to scrape off some color from the crayon and mixed it with the Matte Acrylic Gel. I love this technique. You can create your own personal texture paste with it. Or just prime the paper with a colored Gel. So many possibilities! The drying time is a bit longer when you add too much of the Gel on one spot. Like I did here…

3#artcrayons-mattegel-mixed

The next paper is filled with the Color Pop Acrylic Paints. All Sets painted on the paper with my finger. You could also use a brush but I really like the look of finger painted color… I also used a pen to get the names on paint strokes. The colors would have changed if I had used a wet brush or applied a thinner layer – it´s up to you how you want to use them. Maybe I will go back and add another page.

4#acryliccolor-swatches

I have done watercolors swatches before but I wanted to have them in my Junque Journal too, so I grabbed a Watercolor Paper and started to paint some hearts and added some splatters. I really love the watercolors and I love how the tiny hearts turned out.  I have numbers on the little tubes too!

5#watercolor-swatch

There are also some Ink Pads in the Vicki Boutin line and they are great! The Colors are nearly the same as the Acrylic Paint… I just grabbed one of the newer Circle Stamps and one of the Re-Fills in black and white and started to stamp… look at the bright colors!

6#colorwheel-swatch

For my last color swatch page I grabbed the Marker (I know you can´t really change them, but I really like them and I wanted to use them…) and just wrote the names of the colors on a piece of paper.

7#pen-swatch

This is what I have done so far – from the list of prompts. But I can´t wait to create more…

You are the cutest

[werbung]
Hello, Jana back again with you. I have a new fun Layout to share.
Sometimes a Project comes together on detours, right?! This happened on this Layout.
I started with stamping some circles; I just wanted to do some color swatches. But I had so much fun stamping with the bright colors (Color Stamp Pads Set2) that I grabbed many more and went totally crazy.

#5youarethe-compl1

As you can see I also went fussy cutting crazy, haha! This Layout really took me some time. I stamped for a while, I fussy cut for a while, I organized all the elements for a while, I glued everything down for a while… oh and I also stitched like crazy for a while! But despite the whole work, I had a lot of fun.

I stamped with three Sets and six colors (Color Stamp Pads Set2)… and yes, there is yellow and orange on this Layout. When you know me and my Projects then you may have noticed that these are not my first color choices. But today I wanted to create a bright Layout and the six colors are working so great together; I just didn´t want to separate them!

#1youarethe-flo1

I grabbed some Art Crayons (Warm Set) for matching tiny color splatters. I really love how this looks, is giving the final touches.

#2youarethe-flo2

Then I grabbed my tablet, watched some scrapbooking process videos and started to cut out all of the stamped images. This was very relaxing.

#3youarethe-flo2

Once I was ready I grabbed the 6×8 and the 12×12 Paper Pad from the “All the Good Things” Collection to punch out some matching hearts. I wanted to add some patterned Papers to my stamped Elements. But the colors from the Papers are not as bright as the stamped Images on the white Cardstock – I will not use any of the hearts. But look at the photo, I love how it looks

#4youarethe-flo3

I wanted to have something behind the elements, but don´t wanted to add Mixed Media. I wanted to have the stamped and splattered Images as the main focus and they should stand out from the rest. So I decided add some sewed lines with my sewing machine to the Foundation Paper; round about 2” of each color. I have done that to other projects before and I really love this effect!

#6youarethe-compl2

I used a lot of 3D squares to adhere all the bits and pieces down. I wanted to get sure that the Chipboard Letters will stay in place (because of all the thread on the Paper and the different dimensions) so I used Liquid Glue for them. I used the black Letters because I wanted to have something that will stand out from the ocean of bright colors and you´ll also find some black in the photo…

#7youarethe-compl3

I also have a process video for you to watch. https://youtu.be/xDGi1_TXRek
