Art is the voice of a heart art page with Magenta

Hello my dear crafty friends!
Today  I am going to share my new art journal double spread made over the single A4 Mixed Media cardstock using Magenta stencils and stamps.



This page is all about  your own understanding of art. As Art is the voice of your heart, there is no rules or right and wrong in doing your own art.
So even if it looks a bit weird it's still your own interpretation of your heart in colors, designs and general concept .

I made the background with acrylic paints and then added a few black cardstock pieces in a totally random way.
Two Magenta stencils were used to add the contrast (numbers in black) and texture (stars in blue) and two Magenta stamps were used to add some stamping on the background.

The metal piece was stamped over metal sheet and then colored with a  mix of alcohol inks. Then it was die cuts and glued on the right side of the double page spread.The stamping was made with black pigmented ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.





The sentiment was stamped over the page with permanent black ink.


The main image on the left side was stamped in the same heat embossed way and then colored with distress markers and covered with gel medium.



Some black pen doodling was added around the page for more " hand made" interest.

@3: Altered Mixed Media Birthday canvas


Hello my dear crafty friends!
This altered canvas was made for my dearest 3 yo grand daughter (she is 4 now already, but who counts? ).
I made it for three web challenges for January.
The first one is 7Dots Use three colors challenge and I used their cardstock, stickers and tags to make this art piece.

The second one is More than Words and they asked for Birthday with Tags inspiration.
January Main Challenge

The last one is for Scrapki- Wyswaniowo and they asked for vellum. I used printed in gold vellum for a die cut and as a part of my cluster matting.



As you can see I used tons of stencils over the canvas and over the cardstock as a part of my design. Quite a few die cuts added interest to this canvas. I used just two colors of paints and mists to make it a good fit for one of the challenges and there are stamping over the matting pieces and as the main part of the mixed title. The stamps are from Magenta.
 A few different mediums were also used to make this canvas, such as white crackle paste and peach pearl stencil paste together with mists and paints from different origins.





Hertfelt Little Moments fabric notebook cover

This canvas covered notebook with small altered canvas as a cover embellishment cluster was made for some web challenges.
Lucky me- between new born on 1/1/2018 grandson and all DT jobs I still had some " me time" and made a couple of projects for different challenges.
This project was primary made for Dusty Attic mood board January challenge and my main inspiration was color Gold, laced textures and general shabby look of this notebook.
