I’m a space dork. Big time. I love space and the concept of travel and finding extraterrestrial life. This ICAD is an homage to that theme while the brown colors signify me keeping my feet planted on planet Earth while my imagination takes me anywhere I’d like to go. I used my faux resin paper technique, Archival Ink, Distress Paint, Golden Fluid Acrylic, Pitt Big Brush Markers, Um Wow Studio embellishments, and Distress Ink. Lots of products for one little card!
This is a fun page with lots of collage, lots of color, and lots of not caring what the final product looked like! This, ladies and gentlemen, is what FUN looks like…in mixed media, anyway!
I used a few different colors of acrylic paints, my sew stamper (with its satanic pigment ink which NEVER DRIES), collage with a lot of Mod Podge, Archival Ink, and a foam stamp. Hope you like this colorful and super busy page!
Here’s an art journal flip for you to see how my new Prima art journal is shaping up. I’m not sure I’ll be able to fit much more into it! Keep in mind that some of the pages you will see have not yet been released, so be patient with me!
This mixed media card has a lot of meaning for me, but I didn’t feel the necessity to title it. I used a ton of stamping and Distress Ink with some free motion stitching around the edge of the butterfly’s wings. Hope you enjoy this simple little card.
Sometimes you need to journal about something and other times you just want to get messy. This journal page was very specifically ABOUT SOMETHING for me. I love Paris…the colors of the city, the language, the coffee, the culture, the language. I have never been to Paris, mind you, but I love it. Yeah, I know…what if I hate it when I go? I doubt that quite a lot. But I digress…
This page was made using embossing folders on watercolor paper, lots of fluid acrylic paint, of course I had to use my sewing machine, and a bunch of embellishments. I really enjoyed ripping this page out of my journal to work on it. Hope you enjoy the process!
Hi, everyone! As you know, I’ve become quite enamored of the Mix’d Media INX by Donna Salazar and ClearSnap. My only beef with them? The lids don’t stick to the product very well and when stacked the lids stick to the container ABOVE it. GRRRRR. WELL, Tracey Sabella informed me of a very handy solution to this problem!
As I amp myself up for the next (and last!) school year of college before I graduate with my BA in Sociology, I would like to know, what type of content you (my blog viewers) would like to see. As you can tell, I tend to spend most of my time recording videos for YouTube, but it can be very time consuming. You have to record the artistic process, copy the files, edit the video, voiceover the video, convert the video, upload the video, and create a thumbnail image and corresponding blog post. Each video takes around 4 or 5 hours of work to make.
SOOOOOOOO…perhaps this semester I will focus on some photo-based tutorials and blog posts so that I keep my mojo going and don’t leave you all hanging! That being said, what types of techniques, products, color combinations, etc. are you interested in seeing? Would you like to see me working on canvas, in my art journal, on tags? I like France Papillon‘s audience engagement with her Journal on Monday series, so let’s have a go at it with all of you Imps out there, eh?
