Arrival - Art Journalling With Karyn Schultz!

 Hi Bee Arty Lovelies!

It's Karyn here and today I have an art journal page to share with you made using the Destination Anywhere collection from Bee Arty

 
I created this page in my DWM Multi Media Journal on a Calico page. I painted clear gesso over the calico first (to stop the ink from going through the page). Then I painted Rust and Walnut Colour Artist ink across the page using a painting with plastic technique.
 
 
 Next I used the Capture Stencil with Leather Colour Paste.
 
 
 Then I added stamping using the Watermark stamp set and Rust and Walnut Colour Artist ink . I used a paintbrust to paint the ink onto the stamp, then stamped it on the page. 
 
 
 Here is my finished page. The image is a picture I found online and printed out on photo paper. Under the picture I added elements cut from the Arrival paper from the Destination Anywhere paper collection. I've also added a Grungy Filmstrip die cut on 350gsm white cardstock and painted with Rust Colour Artist ink. The page title was cut from the Parcel paper.
 
 
 Here are some close-ups of the page. I love how it turned out, It's one of my fav art journalling pages!

Breathe, Relax & Unwind by Charmane Koch

 Hey guys! Hope you all had a lovely Mothers Day! I did! Didn't do much, but that's the way I like it!

Today I am sharing with you a layout I created using the awesome Finding Paradise Collection.


I have discovered how to emboss my Die Cuts! And it's a bit fiddly but the effect is AWESOME!


Using my Die Cutting machine, I have cut out the gorgeous Flowers of Paradise

Then on a folded piece of copy paper I have inked with Watermark Ink...


Then poured my Punch Embossing Powder over the top...


Folding the paper underneath in half then makes it easier to pour the excess embossing powder into the container again {I'm sure most of you experienced people would know this trick!}

I've then got the Heat Gun out to set the Embossing Powder.


And as you can see in this photo it gives a really shiny pretty look to the Die Cut! I'm stoked!


I have used from the Finding Paradise Collection:


I've also used Bee Arty:
And splatted with watered down Mica Powder - Soot, Apple of My Eye & Peach Nectar

Thanks for popping by & hope I've inspired you to get out your Die Cuts & Embossing Powders! So much fun! 


Happy Creating!

Cards - With Karyn Schultz!

   Hi Bee Arty Lovelies!

It's Karyn here and today I have two cards to share with you made using the Destination Anywhere collection from Bee Arty. I love this collection, it is perfect for masculine projects and family layouts!
 
  
 I started by creating 2 diecuts, using heavyweight 350gsm white cardstock, of the Grungy Filmstrip frame die for the front of my cards.

I then painted Rust Colour Artist Ink on one frame and Walnut Colour Artist ink on the other. I painted with a brush to give a mottled effect using a more concentrated ink in places and more watered down in other places.
 

 
Here are my finished cards.
 
 
 Here is a close up of the first card "Keep Calm and Travel On". My card base measured 10.5cm x 14.8cm and was created from Kraft cardstock. I matted 10cm x 14.3cm Journey paper (reverse side) from the Destination Anywhere collection. I then added the frame diecut painted in Rust ink. I die cut 2 of the planes using the Transport metal dies (in white cardstock) and painted a Rust Artist ink coloured stripe along the side to coordinate with the card colours and to tone down the stark white. I cut one of the planes in half and adhered them to the card as shown. I cut the card title from the Parcel paper and around the title I added a strip offcut from a Grungy Filmstrip diecut (these negative strips are as fun to use as the positive cuts). Lastly I added some hessian trim and black sewing thread.

 
The next card is called "Sightseeing". Once again the card base measured 10.5cm x 14.8cm and was created from Kraft cardstock. I matted 10cm x 14.3cm Journey paper (reverse side) from the Destination Anywhere collection. I then added the frame diecut painted in Walnut ink. I die cut 1 of the Combi-Van's using the Transport metal dies (in white cardstock) and painted an Olive Grove Mica Powder stripe along the side. I adhered it to the card as shown and attached 2 vintage brads to the wheels. I cut the card title from the Parcel paper and adhered it over some hessian trim, a chipboard offcut, and black sewing thread.

Layer upon layer upon layer! by Linda Pearson



The focus for the project in today’s blog involves building layers in your art journal backgrounds.  The embellishments added to finish off the page are die-cut shapes left over from my stash.

Other products used:

Apply 2 coats of Gesso to the page and dry off.

 

 

In containers add a quantity of Gesso to each, then add a tiny amount of Shimmer dust (peacock, duke and lollipop) to each container with the Craft Powder Spoon.  

Mix individual colours.

 

With a paint brush apply the Navy gesso mix over the page.  Dry off.

 



Add more Gesso to the blue mix, apply the light coloured mix through the Humps A6 stencil with a silicone sponge randomly over the page.

 

 


Add another layer using the Humps A6 stencil but using only white Gesso.  Turn the stencil with different angles to randomly add the stencil around the page.

Wash stencil thoroughly.

 

 

This layer - using the Lollipop gesso mix apply through the Flux A6 stencil with a silicone sponge. No need to for perfection in these layers as much of the layer will be covered.  Dry off.

Next layer – add more Gesso to the lollipop mix, apply the light coloured mix through the Flux A6 stencil with a silicone sponge randomly over the page.   Dry off.

 

 

Finally apply white Gesso through the Flux A6 stencil, changing the angle of the stencil as you cover the page.  Dry off.

 

 


Add texture paste to the Peacock gesso mix, apply the paste through the Flux A6 stencil  in several spaces over the page. 

Add more Lollipop and texture paste to pink mix, apply 2 spaces on the page.

Allow to dry thoroughly.

 

Outline the shapes using the Life of colour pens – black.

.



For this project I selected some leftover diecut shapes to embellish the page. 

-       Flowers Metal Die

-       Frame Metal Die

-       Abstract Circles Metal Die

Stamp the words onto cardstock offcut with Archival Ink stamp pad in black. Cut out and distress the edges with black ink.

Add some spatters over the page in the blue and pink, this ties the composition together.

Adhere all the embellishments to the to the page.

Thank you for stopping by and happy creating.
