Making color

Have you seen this yet?
I have been playing with the FineLine Applicator for a few years now
but I have not told you guys about it

You can find the Fineline Applicator at Micheal's, Hobby Lobby and Dick Blicks to name a few

This bottle can be using for LOTS of great ideas
1)  Adhesive - for the small embellishments 
2)  Add paint for detail work
3) Add Ink for more detail work



This time I used Golden Polymer Medium and Tsukineko Radiant Neon Re-inker
to make some fun color for my Art Journals and Canvas projects

Will share project I made with this on my Live show on
Tuesday Night on Google Hangout and my
Youtube.com/terrisproul channel 

hope you join me LIVE

Happy girl


today I had the need to play in my art journal
Have you ever had one of those days????


Well I did have one of those day 
and I had to play in my Art journal to make me happy again
got my Ebrush out and here is what I made


Happy Girl - Mad Girl Art Journal Page


Start off with these clear stamps
had to use them in a complete different way then 
what they are made for - stamping

As you see I use the stamps as a MASK
yes, I placed them on my CottonWood Art Journal page
and using My Ebrush and Specium Noir Markers - I spray around them



Stamps are from www.pinkamdmain.com



Stamps the girl stamp on the bottom of each page
color each girl different


Add word inside of each quote box
and a few more details with a black pen
and Now I feel so much better

Fun with Little B Products

Fun with Little B products

Litlle B LLC is a newer Paper Products that came to CHA about 1.5 years ago.  Headed by some of my old friends from EK Success.  So when I found that Carol had started her own line of products I was so excited.   Reading their "About Little B" on the website, I had to share what they wrote


About us" really is about YOU – our customers and friends. We could not bring to you the passion, creativity, and quality that enliven all of our products, without our intimate love of crafting and our abiding belief that everyone inherently wants to create something fun and beautiful with their own hands for themselves or a loved one.
At Little B, we commit to you our knowledge and experience, which you can rely on for products with that fresh look and boutique feel Little B exemplifies. Our finely crafted and coordinated products are made with such attention to detail, trends and design elements that we are confident they will enhance your home, office and personal life.
As you peruse our product lines we hope you will recognize the quality, innovation and authenticity that you cannot find elsewhere -- and all at a value you will appreciate. We at Little B also place great emphasis on educating and inspiring those who will be using our products. Discover our videos, projects and instructionals full of inspiration for YOU!

Here is a fun project I made using lots of their products





Tag - paint with Silks Acrylic Glaze from ColourArte
also - see photo below I added a second layer of tape

Love these Mini embellishments
click here to see all of them

Add the stamp in of Flowers from Hot of the Press
stamp set called "Flower Frenzy"
"Congrats" stamps is Stamp it up


Simple but nice tag, thanks for all the new fun Little B
Hope for the best for them

What is my Favorite Art Journal

Most of you know I host a weekly live show and  I love to play in my Art journal,   There are so many different art journals out there, which one do I pick.  I spend most of a year looking at different art journals, took me a while, but I found it..
 
What was I looking for?
       *  Page weight of at least 90 LBS
       *  One with a cover I could altered when I finished my book
       *  One that did not bleed thought
       *  Good Price
       *  Easy to find - to purchase more of the same so most of my book where alike


So you ask, what Art Journal is it?  It's a Cottonwood Art Journal - Cold Press 5 x 7
My book still look amazing when there are all art up
not like the one you see on the left side
I love the front cover on there books, as I can altered  them when I am done

Click Here to purchase 

Hope you enjoy this information
