Hello Bee Arty fans I hope that you all happy and healthy. I have popped in to day to share my latest fun creation using the new min collection release Electric Dreams, it is fun, it is bold, it is funky, it is such a blast to use. Teamed with the new fluro colours and you have a winning combination.
I used some older photos of my girls and made a fun page to reflect the fun they were having in the photos
My first step was to use some black water proof ink and stamp the grid lines from the Life is Touch stamp set onto a pieces of 12x12 white cardstock.
Here you can see how I have placed the stamp images.
Next I cut some strips of the Electric Dreams patterned paper in a variety of random widths. I cut the strips from four different patterns. 1. Black with coloured lines. 2. White with rainbow coloured water drops. 3. White with hand drawn circles and patterns and 4. Black with Xs.
Using a distressing tool distress the edges of the strips. Note: you might tear some of the strips a bit or even in half, do not panic as you will tear them some more in the next step.
Layer the distressed strips over the inked grid lines. Tear off smaller pieces of the strips and layer them over the larger ones. This is how I built it up.
Next I mixed a small amount of the Pink Fluro Mica Powder with some water in a small spray bottle and slowly squirt the cardstock. Tip: the slower you squeeze the lid of the spray bottle the bigger the droplets you will get.
Thanks for popping in and I home that I gave you some inspiration for this fabulous mini collection.

Hope you're all well! Today, I creating a set of ATC coins. A twist to the standard Artist Trading Cards, making them coins, which means circular. Sometimes, it's good to break free from the monotonous.
Here's a look at them

Hi everyone and welcome to my art journal page blog for today encompassing the new ‘Road Trip collection pack’ designed by Michelle Grant Designs. I have taken a slightly different approach with the word die-cuts using the offcuts and rearranging the letters to make a quote.
Bee Arty products used for this project include:
Open 12x12 scrapbook paper
Mica powder – Jungle
Embossing powder – Snow white
Run the Words metal die through a die cut machine using White Cardstock 350gsm
Pull the letters apart but keep the adventure and journey masks aside. From the letters make up the words; L-I-F-E I-S A-N (cut an L to make I and cut an E to make F).
Place the adventure outline onto the Scenic 12x12 scrapbook paper, leave enough space for the loose letters to be added later (approx 3cm from top of page).
Allow to dry thoroughly.
Carefully remove the adventure offcut from the page then spray the heavily with the Jungle spray, allow to dry.
Adhere the Adventure off cut to the page off centre to the watermark on the page (to create a shadowed Adhere the letters L-I-F-E I-S A-N above the adventure word.
Adhere the letters for E-N-J-O-Y to the bottom third of the page. Leave a space to write ‘the’ between enjoy and the JOURNEY off cut from the die-cuts.
Please note: I used a Sakura glaze pen in deep green to write the word THE but you could use a paint pen or whatever you have on hand. I also outlined the letters with the glaze pen as well.
Using the tyre tread stamp from the Making tracks clear stamp set stamp a small section of stamp around the border of page with black , also add some tyre tread ghost stamping randomly around the page too. Add black spatters over the page.
Cut out the caravan image from the Open 12x12 scrapbook paper, age the edge of image with archival ink on blending tool. Add some black spattering also.
Cut out a larger square from the Road 12x12 scrapbook paper, also age the edge of this shape too. Add some mounting tape behind both pieces and adhere to the page.
To finish add some tyre tread ghost stamping on the images.
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have enjoyed my project for the blog.
Take care everyone and please keep safe …
Bye for now…
