Mechanics of a Dream

[Challenge win: Top rocker at 613 Avenue Create challenge][Challenge win: Winner at A Bit More Time To Craft challenge] Here's a mixed media tag I made recently - I used parts of packaging cardboard for the tag. I made a tag hole using a punch. I then used a circular tag diecut for the eyelet,… Continue reading Mechanics of a Dream

Time for Tea

[Challenge win: Winner at CrafTangles challenge] It’s Monday, which means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! I’m still as excited and honored as I was last week to be in the Designer Spotlight for this month, and to create with inspiring artists. This week, the challenge is: Shake It Up, which means all kinds… Continue reading Time for Tea

Celebrate | Mixed Media Tag

I made this mixed media tag recently - I applied clear gesso on a brown tag, and added some texture using modeling paste - a bit with stencils, and a bit directly using a palette knife. I stamped over this using black acrylic paints. I love how this produces an effect very much like using… Continue reading Celebrate | Mixed Media Tag

Journal-Cover Inspired | Mixed Media Tag

It's Inspiration Station time! (Inspiration Station is where my sis and I throw themes at each other for our respective creative sessions.) It was my turn to choose a theme, and I zeroed in on journal covers, mostly made using polymer clay and sometimes other mixed media. Here's a compilation of various journal covers that… Continue reading Journal-Cover Inspired | Mixed Media Tag

Find the Love… | Art Journal

[Challenge win: Winner at A Bit More Time To Craft challenge][Challenge win: Designer spotlight at Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge]A gel print that I made recently in my art journal had, in my opinion, become unsalvageable, so I overwrote it with a completely different spread. I made this A6 spread over multiple days - I'd… Continue reading Find the Love… | Art Journal

Flutter | Mixed Media Tag

[Challenge win: Designer spotlight at Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge]I have these pretty Craftangles decoupage papers in my stash, which I'd been wanting to use for a while. I didn't want to completely obscure them by using them as scrapbook / art-journal backgrounds, nor did I want to use them for decoupage. (I still haven't… Continue reading Flutter | Mixed Media Tag

Own Your Dreams | Mixed Media Tag

I made a mixed media tag over a few days recently, inspired by the moodboard on Mixed Media Place. My usual inclination is to work on my projects in one go, while I'm in the zone. This works amazingly well for art journal pages, but not for bigger or more involved projects, like mixed media… Continue reading Own Your Dreams | Mixed Media Tag

Create with Joy | Mixed Media Tag

When I started dabbling with art journaling late last year,  I ended up making some tags as well. I loved the small work surface of tags, and how I could just use up clay components I've already created, or just whip up bake up a component or two quickly (which is great use for scrap… Continue reading Create with Joy | Mixed Media Tag

100 Days | Bookbinding

I've finally wrapped up my 100 days of art sessions. Literally - by binding all the art journal pages into a book! I mentioned last time that I hadn't thought of the covers earlier, so I got an extra session from making the covers for the book. I used a single sheet to make both… Continue reading 100 Days | Bookbinding

100 Days | Art Journal (11)

Alrighty, this is the final batch of my 100 art journaling sessions! Hope you've enjoyed joining me on my adventure, which I started writing about a little more than two months ago. This batch has a lot of background creation on the actual journal pages. The focal items are painted somewhere else, fussy-cut and pasted… Continue reading 100 Days | Art Journal (11)
