Create to Inspire, an Art Journal Page by Sunila Mahajan

 Hello Bee Arty Lovelies,

Hope you are all doing well! I'm back on the blog today with my favourite, mixed media art journal page. I truly enjoy the freedom it gives me to create and in turn inspire you all. It also always gives me an opportunity to be inspired myself. 

On that note, here's a look at the page.

Rich, luscious colours, textures and elements! I love how vibrant this turned out! I played with the Artist Inks for the background. 

I've added texture paste with a stencil and then some black stamping to create depth and textures.

I've cut my focal Paintbrushes several times and glued them together to create that depth making them look 3 dimensional. I've added sisal underneath them, giving it texture and contrast from the background.

I stamped, coloured and fussy cut the butterflies to add them on to my page. I completed it with splatter and sequins. 

Such a fun vibrant page to create! I called this instant happiness!

Have a great Day!

Small Things created by Tracey Thorne

 I was looking for some no-fuss creating that still looked effective & had that mixed media look that I love so much and I found it in the Fearless Brave and Free range of papers. I was so happy that Paige had suggested this kit to me - just what I needed during lockdown when I had minimal supplies.

I have used Fearless Brave and Free's Comfort Zone as the base layer for this 12x12 layout. I have also cut a few of the word strips from the Free word cardstock sheet. These will run across the top and bottom of the photo.  I have also cut some rectangles of the orange from the Fearless Brave and Free's - Chance cardstock. I have used both sides of this paper utilising the orange and the black spot in the photo stack.

I have stitched a double border where the photo stack will go and then adhered the photo stack to the the page. I have then cut the Grungy Filmstrip die - Large Frame and coloured it using Colourblast dye ink - Marine. This was cut in half and glued just under the photo stack.


The next step was to glue down all the word strips. After doing this I took my black pen and free-hand drew around each one. I have then used the Meridian stamp and black ink to stamp from the corners of a few strips and tapered out and down from them. I have added some twisted cotton to each side of the photo just under the photo stack. 


Finally a stitched black border, personal typed journaling & a flair was added to the page. 

Thanks for popping in & have a great week full of creativity.

Life & Love by Charmane Koch

 Happy Tuesday! Hoping everyone is getting through this freezing winter ok? I do not like it AT ALL!

School holidays is over and it's back to reality of kid drop off/school lunches too! Aggh!

Anyways, let's not think of it and check out this fun layout I created using the Bee The Sunshine range!

I started off by stencilling the gorgeous Sunflowers from the Flower Garden Stencil using White Modelling Paste, and drying with a heat gun.

I have then used just 2 Shimmer Dust colours - Sunflower & Tan to colour... {video coming soon!}

I cut out some bees using the gorgeous Gold Lines Mirrorboard and the Wingspan Die. I also cut a few different Vines from the Devine Die - using Mirrorboard & kraft Cardstock.

I coloured the chipboard bees using Bling Mica Powder - I did a few coats to give it a more golden look.

I just love how the Golden bees turned out!

I had the perfect Charms to match - a bee on it of course!

I added the little gold bees from the Wingspan Die to one of the title letters and on one of the photos.

I matted the photos using Kraft Cardstock to match the colours of the layout. I also backed the layout using the Kraft Cardstock too, but have trimmed down the White Cardstock and distressed the edges. I have then machine stitched around the edges.

And here is the full layout!

You can also see the I have stamped the word Celebrate - dipping in the Tan Shimmer Dust {practising on another scrap paper first!} and then rest amped for a fading out effect. This stamp is from the Celebrate Banner stamp.

Here are the Stamps, Stencils & Dies I used!

Thanks for popping by today and I hope you are inspired to get your Sunflowers and Bees out for a play!

Happy Creating!

Simply Perfect - With Karyn Schultz!

 Hi Bee Arty Lovelies!

It's Karyn here and today I have a scrapbook page to share with you made using lots of fabulous arty products from Bee Arty.  
 I started with a sheet of 350gsm Heavy White Cardstock and spritzed it with water along the right and left of the page (where I wanted to add colour). Then I used a fan brush to add Cool Mint Mica powder. I  continued to spritz more water and add more colour until I had achieved the desired look. 
Next I added some stencilling using the Honeycomb Spray A5 stencil and Stormy Weather Mica powder (mixed with water and applied with a sponge). 

I added stamping using the Find Your Way stamp and Black Archival ink
 I used a combination of Jet Black and Taupe Embossing powders from the Romance Embossing bundle. You could use any combination you prefer (or a single colour), but I love the rustic look of multiple colours.
Here is my completed page. 
 I added a photo mat from Chit Chat Alpha paper and black cardstock diecut created from the Compass metal die.
 The white cardstock diecuts are created using the Flower Stems metal die set.
Thanks so much for stopping by
