Art Journal - Tulips & Tea Bags

Hi Lovelies,

Helen is back again with yet another marvelous Art Journal page! As always, the class is jam packed with wonderful techniques, tips and tricks and you walk away with a stunning page to show for it!


This week's page consists of burnt brown and red shades with lots of different torn mediums and six wild tulips, finished with a lovely inspiring sentiment.



Helen will teach you in the class how to layer pieces of music paper and tea bags (yes that's correct) to create the prefect base for the journal page.

 

Only three colours of Jo Sonjas paints are required to create the entire page! It's all about the techniques used which allow you to maximize the effects of the paint- which the talented Helen will show with you.

 

This page is just stunning and is both soft and bold at the same time. We are always impressed by Helen's new creations week after week and are never disappointed.

 

 We love how corrugated card can add the perfect amount of texture and dimension to lift your page!


If you love to do what makes your soul shine, and if that's is art journalling or learning wonderful techniques, then come along to our next Art Journal class for a fantastic time!

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.

Mega Scrap - Cest La Vie

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!


This range is overflowing with lovely floral designs in pink, mauve and cream tones. Some decoupage pages have been included in this range which Helen has used here for this stunning arrangement.  

 Helen is a master at creating beautiful embellishment clusters which you also learn in her classes!


These adorable chipboard bees from the collection have a coat of gold embossing powder which is the perfect final …

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…
