In the Flowers- Art Journal by Aditi

 Hello,

Welcome back to the blog! Wishing you all a happy Sunday!

Today I'm back with another video tutorial project from you'll. This time I decided to create a double page mixed media journal spread. I wanted to play with the Artists Colour Dye Inks on my watercolour paper and let the colours do their own magic. 

Here's a look at the spread


My idea is always 'use minimal supplies, play and create' Here again I've created a quick background with texture paste and a stencil, the inks and stamping. For the focal I've added stamped fussy cut images along with a few die cut images. I love the organic look of this page. 

You can watch the process video on the Bee Arty Facebook group or on my YouTube Channel

Here are a few close ups







Supplies used:

6. Colour Blast Die- Netted and Compass 


Hope you enjoyed this project!
Hugs,
Aditi

"Right Here" by Charmane Koch

 Hey Everyone! Happy Easter Monday! Hoping you've had a lovely Easter weekend with your family and friends! Today I wanted to share a layout I created using a mixture of Mica Powders & Artist Inks...


I have coloured some DIY Charms Creations Embellishments to match the layout... I used Cranberry Artist Ink and a paintbrush. I did add water so that when they dried it would be lighter in some areas, but I did make sure it was darker around the edges of the embellishments...


You do have to let them dry naturally, as a heat gun will melt or burn the fabric/felt/tulle!




I used one of the Grateful Heart "Lined"Stencil patterns with a little modelling paste, then decided to mix it up with the colours, which was fun... I used Bee Arty Cranberry & Walnut Artist Ink & Bling & Sienna Mica Powders...


Loving the effect that has been created mixing the colours...




This is the outcome of the page... I just love colouring embellishments and the paper to match...


Thanks for stopping by and hope I have inspired you!

'F*^k Cancer' by Belinda Spencer

 Hello Bee Arty fans!!

Happy Easter!! I hope the Easter bunny has been kind to you.

Today I am sharing my latest layout featuring lots of amazing Bee Arty products including papers from the Graffiti Grunge and Covid Capers collections.

***PLEASE NOTE: This post includes the 'f' word so if you are sensitive to swear words please look away. In this instance the 'f' word is perfect to describe the last year for my little family.***

'F*^k Cancer'


To start my layout, I cropped a sheet of patterned paper from the Covid Capers collection and mounted it on a sheet of the awesome Bee Arty Heavy Weight White Cardstock. I then used a palette knife to spread some of the Colour Blast Black Heavy Gesso over the central area.


Next I used the black gesso again with the That Way Stencil to add some more interest to the focal area. To apply the gesso, I use a latex make-up wedge with a very small amount of gesso and apply with a dabbing motion through the stencil. This ensures that the paint doesn't bleed under the stencil and you get nice crisp edges.

I used the tiniest star stamp from the Moments In Time Clear Stamp Set with some Jet Black Archival Ink to stamp around the focal area also.


I die cut the Honeycomb Metal Die from extra heavy weight white cardstock a couple of times and fussy cut some tags from the Graffiti Grunge Perfect patterned paper. I arranged all of the pieces and stapled them together before adding to the page.


I added the photo and embellishments next. Then I stamped some more stars using the Jet Black ink and stamps from the Moments In Time Set onto the extra white cardstock. I fussy cut each star and added to the page along with some quotes cut from the Covid Capers papers as well as the Graffiti Grunge Be Yourself paper. Finally I added the title using American Crafts Thickers as well as letters cut from the Untangle Lines patterned paper.

Alpha Metal Die Cuts Two Ways by Tracey Campbell

Hello everyone, Tracey Campbell here with you today. Have you noticed the new trend of slimline cards? Everywhere I look on line I see them at the moment so I decided to give it a go and try my hand at creating some, so here I am sharing two cards I created using the 365 Alphas Metal Dies.


Slimline describes the look of the cards, they can be horizontally long and skinny or vertically tall and thin. I have created these cards 8.8 x 21.5 cm on the horizontal. I am also going to use the 235 Alphas Metal Dies two different ways, these alphas dies are versatile so that you get bang for your buck and you will never be held back as you can create any greeting you like as you have every letter of the alphabet.

Many Thanks

For the Many Thanks card I cut a 16.16 x 21.5 cm rectangle from some white cardstock and folded it in half. I have used the papers from the Grateful Heart Collection for the card. Next  I fussy cut the doily from the Faith paper and the words Thankful and Blessed from the Family Paper. 

Using the 365 metal dies I cut the letters "Many Thanks" from the Together paper. For this card I am using the letters cut from the paper and in the next card I will use a negative cut.


I found when I placed the "Many Thanks" on top of the fussy cut doily they didn't stand out as much as I like grabbed some Coffee Colour Spray and inked the edges with the straw. I was very careful to not apply too much and had a piece of paper towel handy to wipe off any excess.


With the fold of the card at the top, layer the fussy cut doily on the card so with the words Thankful and Grateful tucked under the edges. Adhere the die cut letters over the top of the doily to form the words "Many Thanks" and decorate with a few leaves and sequins. Finish off with a hand drawn boards and a few small drawn dots around the sequin clusters. 


You Colour My World

For my second card I have used the papers from the Arty Farty Collection and cut a 16.16 x 21.5 cm rectangle from some white cardstock and folded it in half, a handful of colourful sequins will help to finish off the card.


Next I  cut the words "You and World" from the cardstock, making sure that the fold was at the top. I wanted to sue the negative word for my card so I was careful to place it exactly where I wanted it positioned on the card. By negative I mean the image that is created after you cut out the letters, I now have the word "Colour" to use on another project. 


To finish my card I backed the negative "Colour" word with coloured sequins by adhering them on to a strip of cardstock and sticking it to the inside of the card. Using the words "You" and "World" from the cut-a-part of the Transform paper I placed strips across the top and bottom of the card and finished off with some aqua small letter stickers to form the word "my". 


I hope that I have inspired you to use the 365 Alpha Dies, they really are a versatile die that allows you to have two completely different ways of using them. Either use the negative cut out of your project or cut the letters to put on your project. With such a fun and funky font they are great to have on hand. 

Pop back in tomorrow to see what another Creative Team member has to share and inspire you. Until then keep Beeing Arty with Colour Blast. 

Hugs
Tracey

This style of layout using strips of papers would look amazing in many different patterned papers.
I hope you like it.  Below are the full layout followed by some closeups showing more detail.
