Tell your story .......

Today I want to share an Art Journal with you and I have put together a small step by step tutorial on how I made the page. Hope you like it.

To create the background, I used different colors paint spray
Spray one color on the acetate and then spritz one or two time with water on top.

Press the acetate gentle to the background with the paint facing down. The paint will then look something like this. You can either dry it with a heatgun or just leave it to dry. When dry you add the next color .

Finished result with 3 colors. You can now choose to stamp, draw, write, make a collage or whatever you like.

I thought a collage would look good with my background, so I gathered some vintage ephemera matching the colors of the background. With scissors, gluestick, and a pencil I put together a collage. This part of the page can take some time before you feel it is ok.

Thank you for looking. Keep on creating.

Thrift Shop

I have a layout to show you with a short tutorial on how I made it. Thank you for looking.

Here are some of the product I gathered together to create the page: masks, gesso,  Coloration spray ink, Sorbet, Velvet and Dimentional Crystal in colors coordinating the shoes in the picture. Some of the products I used and some I didn't and that is how I work. I also used products not shown on the picture below.

First I made some texture with Velvet - dimentional paint - Aloha combined with a stencil. I used a spartel to spread the paint evenly on the background. Make sure to clean the stensil straight after use.

I added strips of sticky canvas on top of the paint when dry. To create some extra interest to the page I sew on some strip of patternpaper on the edges of the page. This is now a 8,5”x11” page.

On top of the canvas strips and paint I added another layer with texture, using a homemade stencil and Sorbet glossy medium - Frost

I painted the canvas strips with some clear gesso and then added a thin layer with Colorations spray - Walmea Bay using my finger as a paintbrush. Finally adding some Maya Road butterflies, some red gems to match the red flowers in the pattern paper and Thickers.

How to stand out!

Two Art Journal pages I made last night in a hurry, I just had to get some energy out and this is the result. The background is made with acrylic paint, spray paint and a gelli plate. The black is black paint mixed with water. I painted with a round chinese brush.
Wishing you all a creative week.

Some creative love in the studio.

Hi there.
I've had some creative fun in the studio. Been playing in my art journal and these two pages was some of the things I did. The pictures could have been better, but I guess that is part of the playing for fun part. Don't have to set up my photo studio.

This one is two pages put together with the help of photoshop. I just upgraded my photoshop to CC2014 and had to try it out. The eye stamp is from VLVS. I went through my ink pads to throw away the ones not working anymore. Guess there where still some ink in some of them :-)
Wishing you all a creative and fun weekend.

Jeg har kost meg med et nytt produkt som er designet av Vibeke Spigseth. Selvklebende tekstilark som kommer i en pakke med to ruller. Den ene rullen har disse fantastisk herlige uglene.

Jeg har også pyntet med trepynt og papirtråd Alle nyhetene til Vibeke Spigseth finner du her. Ringene jeg har brukt er fra Tim Holtz og kjøpt på Camelia butikken. Jeg skal holde kurs på Camelias Hus i mars hvor vi skal lage minialbum / perm med denne teknikken, bare da skal vi bruke papir til å dekorere, og lage en helt annen type innmat. Det er enda noen få ledige plasser om du er interessert.

Kjære Mamma

En mor fortjener et kort etter hennes hjerte. Her har jeg laget et med lekre Vibeke Spigseth produkter. Fjæren er fra stempelplaten Curiosity, den er stemplet, embosset og klippet ut. Den passer perfekt til et av mønsterarkene i designblokken med lekre mønsterpapir . Rhinestone pynten og klemmen er også fra den nye serien. Jeg har sydd med maskin rundt kantene og hjertet er stanset ut med dies.

Ønsker alle mødre en flott morsdag på søndag.

Details of USA journal - Chelsea Marked

Hi, today I want to share another page in my ArtJournal Details of USA.
This page is much darker than the stuff I usually make, but the inspiration for this double page was the detail picture of a brown brick wall. Picture taken at the Chelsea marked. I've used gesso with a stencil from TCW for the background. I colored it with Golden paint and distress Stain.

Thank you for looking, and wish you a creative weekend!
