Got my eye on you

I had a blast making this project, I was challenged to make a project that will inspire you to use Splash Inks. I felt that this project would be artful and simple at the same time.


EYE ON SPLASH INKS

Supply List:
Watercolor Paper
Pencil
Water bottle

1. I started by drawing out my eye with a pencil, when I had the basic done I started to darken each line with my Perma Writer's.
2.   I used my Watercolor Brushes and Splash Inks to color in my image.  I used a lot of water in some areas so that the Splash Ink color would run and create interest.  When I finished with my Splash Inks I outlined some of the area with my Perma Writer to add depth to the Art.
3.  Frame

Thanks for stopping by today

Frog Dog Studio Guest Designer

I was so honored to be asked to be a guest Designer for Frog Dog Studios 
They have Monthly kits, and a great blog.  

I got a the December kit and it's was full of fun stuff
Tim Holtz Stencil - Cargo
Silk Acrylic Glaze - Fern and Carmen
Viva Molding Cream
Two stamps from Prima
Sheet of Ephemera
Tim Holtz Woodland Tree
Tim Holtz Ecelectric Elements 6" Fabic Pack
Fibers
Stick-On Canvas - with 4 - 6x6 Canvas sheets

My first project I made a Tag.



1.  Started with a simple tag, I used a Palette Knife to push the molding paste into the Tim Holtz Stencil, I only used part of the stencil on the bottom of the tag, Set aside to dry.  

2.  When my Modeling Cream was dry, I added some of the Fern "Silk Acrylic Paints" to the whole tag.  
3.  I love the Prima stamp that looked like a snowflake to me.  I used clean embossing ink and Stampendus Shabby Pink Embossing Enamel - I stamp that image twice on the tag.
4.  I cut out one of the image on the ephemera sheet, but the edges where too white for me, so I add the Carmen Silk Acrylic Glaze to all the edges.
5.  Added the Ephemera image, a little fiber and a poinsettia I had to finish up my tag.


My Second Project is a Wall hanger



1.  Start off with two Stick-On Canvas.  Mixed the Carmen "Silk Acryclic Glaze" into the Viva Modeling Cream, use the Tim Holtz Stencil I add the mixed using a Palette Knife, down one side of one of the Canvas, I used on part of the stencil.  Next I used the same idea but on the other side using on the Modeling Cream as is.  Set aside to dry

2.  On the Second Canvas, I mixed the Fern Silk Acryclic Glaze into the viva Modeling Cream Palette knife the color down the center of this canvas using the same Tim Holtz Stencil.  Set aside to dry.
3.  The Canvas I used the Color "Fern" on the for the Modeling Cream, I paint that Canvas with the "Silk" Carmen.  -  Let the Silk paint sit on the Canvas for a few minute and then remove the paint from the Letter using a baby whip.  The Modeling Cream will act as a resist.  Do the same for the next canvas but I used the Fern Color.  
4.  On the Carmen Canvas, I stamp the Checker Board image down post using Black Stazon.  On the Fern Canvas, I stamp the Snowflake stamp image using Red Stazon Ink.  
5.  I pick Three pattern from the "Eclectic Elements" and Die Cut a Tree and Flowers.  Used these to  embellish my projects.  Add some Dew Drops from The Robin Nest on my Tree.  
6.  Find two image from the Ephemera sheet, to help enhance my project 
7.  Added Snowflake eyelet to the top and bottom of one panel (Canvas) and top only to the other.  Add Fiber to these eyelet to attach them.  
 
Here you can see how I used Ribbon to attach the two Canvas together.  I uses the same ribbon on top to make a hanger.

My Third Project - Art Journal Page

Christmas book

I just love to make mini books and the paper's from the Robin Nest are perfect to play with.

Here is the Front cover, I used the Christmas Tree Papers as an accent, I cut the tress out and added Dew Drops to them.  See How I used the Christmas Glitter Word Paper to add my Merry Christmas.  
Here is a Side view of the book - Size of the book is 9" x 6" x 4" - this large side allow for lots of embellishments.  As you see I kept my simple.  I have too much fun on the inside pages.  

There is a total of 6 pocket pages in this book, Each Page has three pockets for Tags,  You can never have too many tags to add photo or journaling.  Again I use the Christmas Glitter Words Paper to had the "December 25"  to my pocket
Here is a top view of the 6 pocket pages I have in my book, You can see also some of the tags.  I hope you stop by The Robin Nest store and see all their wonderful Christmas papers.  Did I tell you they are on sale???  20% off certain Christmas Paper's.  Stop by their blog also, to see more ideas.  

Hope you have a great holiday

Fall mirror

I just love all the colors of Fall..  the reds, yellows, oranges, they just make me happy.  But sad to say these color are only here for a few days.  How can i keep them always?  Art, is always the right answer - off to my studio


sorry about the photo, I did not think when I made it how hard it would be to photograph it.  but I think you get the idea.

1.  Start off with a white cardstock and color with my NiJi Olil Pastels using the red, yellows and oranges to make a wonderful background - blend each color into the other.

2.  I found this mirror at the local art store (on sale) and painted it with Orange paint.  Can you see that this mirror was a flower shape?
3.  I stamp onto the Color cardstock that I created with my personal line of stamps from SinCity Stamps.  I love this Leave plate of stamps, I created.  Lots of great things plan for them.


4.  I cut each leaf out by hand and paste each of them on the wood mirror frame with Nori paste from Niji .  I love the way this whole project worked out.  Sorry again about not get that perfect photo.  

How easy was that project?  Only four steps, so next time you see a mirror or frame, you know what to created with it.  

thanks again for stopping by
