Art Journal - Rustic Tress

Hi Lovelies,

I'm back again with some more Art Journal goodness! This week's page has more of an earthy feel to it with plenty of textures and natural tones. 

The colour palette for the page consists of light green, bold orange, and sienna with splashes of blue. Although these are Helen's chosen colours, ladies are more than welcome to mix things up and change them. 

Helen has been loving using tea bags in her pages and so have we! There's nothing better than an excuse to have more cups to tea! Plus you can use them to create incredible pages like this! 

On top of the various layers used to make the background, Helen has used the wonderful technique of repetition and stamped this gorgeous tree pattern to make a lovely feature. Use the Stampendous Script Tree stamp to get the same effect as Helen for this page. 

There is always plenty of room for error in Art Journalling which is half the fun of it!
If you mess something up or aren't happy with a specific layers, no need to stress as there will be many more layers to come. After all, art is not perfection!

A little bit of foam mounting tape always does the trick to add a little extra dimension to the page without too much hassle. 

As Helen always loves to do, adding an inspirational or personal quote is a lovely way to finish of your art journal page. The quote chosen for this weeks page is, "Storms make tress take deeper roots." 

Our blog is full of many stunning Art Journal pages just like this so feel free to check them out! However, to really get in on the action and excitement, come along and join one of the classes in store! No matter if you're a beginner or serious crafter, Art Journaling is a wonderful way to learn new techniques and create some beautiful pieces.

Dylusions Dy-Cuts Art Journal

Hi Lovelies,

This week's edition of Art Journal is very special, stunning and unique!
We can't get enough of all the textures and colours going on in this page! We just love this. 

This wonderful page features the Dylusions 'Dy-Cuts' which are quirky and colorful pre-cut shapes which make the perfect addition to any art journal page!

You probably can already guess what paints we have used this week...
The stunning, vibrant colours which are leaping of this page, are of course, Dylusions paints!

When you take a closer look at you can see the texture and elements which have been layered to create this stunning page. A script stamp is perfect for layering and can fill in any gaps where you think something might be missing but not quite sure what!

Helen has scattered some of the new Dina Wakley 'Collage Words' across the two pages. These are great as you can add a sentiment to your page whilst still allowing the colours from the background to peek through.

Hi Lovelies,

I should let you have a moment to catch your breath before you start scrolling through this blog post as the stunning photos you're about to see will really take your breath away!

Okay, I hope you're still breathing and have enough brain function to read this text.  These gorgeous snapshots all come from our first Mega Scrap class of this year which features 'C'est La Vie' by Couture Creations.

The wonderful Helen has been at is again to prepare TEN unique, individual and entirely beautiful layouts using the one range and taught on the one day!

Nautical ATC Class

Hi Lovelies,

Today I'm sharing with you some photos of what ladies got up to in one of our previous Artist Trading Card classes!

Obviously this week's ATC's have a nautical theme, so the Couture Creations 'Sea Breeze' die set was the perfect accompaniment!

The stunning watery background for both the card and die cuts is attributed to the wonderful Tim Holtz Oxides! These inks are extremely versatile and have such a unique finish.

These cards measure at 2.5" x 3.5" and are the perfect size to give as gifts to friends, pop in your daily diary or mix in with your pocket scrapping.

Liz used a light layer of clear embossing powder over the oxide inked die-cuts which gives a beautiful watery effect. 

If you've been watching our Blog space lately you would know we're currently on a bit of a Crackle Texture Paste craze! I'm sure you will be too after you try it as it truly takes your project up that extra notch!

Similarly to Art Journal classes, ou…
