Aloha!!

I am full into the swing of December Daily. I am so inspired by all the holiday products and feelings!! I have made the choice to embrace this mojo and just scrap holiday stuff when I feel inspired.

Today I am sharing with you the process video I made to go along with the Geek Lab blog post I wrote up last week.

Here is the link for the process video on the Clique Kits Youtube Channel:


I loved using the exclusive printables from the Clique Into the Holidays Workshop taught by Lacey.  There is so much included with this workshop on top of all the inspiration as well. Be sure to check that out. I am also using the Clique Into the Holidays 2017 kit to put together this pocket page spread.

This is Day 10 from my 2016 album. There were a few pictures that I wanted to use with a little bit of journalling.

Don’t forget to use my code Hannah10 and you can get 10% this worksop and all the Holiday Add ons in to the Clique Store.

Shimmerz Design Team Wood Canvas Art Piece

New Shimmerz White Logo

 

Aloha!!

The rainy season is full blown here in the PNW area now. And that means I am searching for color. Which really translates into watch out for a load of colorful projects!!

Today is Shimmerz Day!! I love this day. I love one I get to focus on all my Shimmerz stuff and just play.

Lately I have been doing a ton of art journaling and I have been itching to maybe, just maybe try some art on a canvas. Then bam in the mail came a wooden canvas!! What are the odds of that?! It really must mean I needed to try something. Anything.

If you have been following me this fall you have noticed I really have been leaning towards more of that watercolor look. I have been loving taking my Shimmerz sprays and grabbing my paintbrush and let the sprays splatter. There is just something cool about when the liquidy color lands on a page anyhow it flows differently every single time.

Using the wooden canvas did make the spray splatters look and bleed into each other a little bit. I did add absorbent ground to the wood before so that the splatters move more on top of the wood instead of in the wood. Absorbent ground like gesso has a white tint to it.

Let’s take a look at this canvas and I’ll mention a few of my favorite elements on it. I also will mention a couple of things I would change if I were to re do this again.

I started with lots of Shimmerz Sprays. Here is the list of sprays I used:

  1. Vibez: Velveteen Green and Pink Moscato (Both new additions to the store)
  2. Coloringz: Keep Palm
  3. Spritz: Bamboo Leaf

I used a round paint brush to achieve the larger splatters and blend the splatters together.  This part does take a bit of time, but with some music and just letting go of that analytical thinking this process to me is so calming.

By using multi matte medium I adhered pieces of paper and washi tape. I just put them randomly around the canvas. At this point I have no idea where this spread is gonna go. I really like to take that approach too. I try no to overthinking it. There will be time for that later when I add extra stuff to my spread.

Once the matte medium is dry I added some tiny triangles with a fine line bottle with thinned out with airbrush medium to In The Navy Acritonez. Acritonez is really thick but I love the color. By thinning it down I get the color but really easy draw with in a finalize bottle.

I think my favorite part of the canvas has to be the gold foil flakes!! My friend Khristina started a fun kit club(Secret Not So Secret Club) and put together a mixed media kit for me in November. She added these gold foil flakes, and I have been itching to use them.

To adhere them I used matte medium as well. I think maybe in the future I might use modge lodge in shiny finish, I feel like it would not mute the shiny gold part. It takes a bit playing to get the foil not to stick to your fingers but once I got a good system it was really fun adding tons of gold through the canvas.

To create the wording on the canvas I created a cut file in Photoshop and welding in together in Silhouette Studio. I used two different fonts and then cut them out with the same patterned paper. I used a gorgeous paper in the Bohemian Dreams Collection from Cocoa Vanilla.

If I were to redo this I think I would use more of a solid like pattern. Also maybe a color that was different then the background splatters. This will affect the look once the Modge Podge dries. I really have to work to add outlining and contouring around the letters. Even with some paint markers and a charcoal pencil I still needed to add something later.

I layered lots of ephemera, die cuts and stickers on top of two gold doilies which I wrapped around my wood canvas. I made sure I gave a bit of dimension to them by curling the edges up and thinking about the materials I was layering together.

I also added some SpiegelMom Scraps Sequins on the canvas among the clusters. I finished the whole thing of by splattering lots of Blingz and Good as Gold Inklingz!!

I know this is quite busy, but for me it was all about getting messy. Also having fun.

Now that I ventured out into the world of canvas art work, I have a feeling I will be doing more of these canvases!!

Be sure to be on the look out for my process video later tonight on my Youtube Channel.

 

Also be sure to mention me when you make some purchases over at the Shimmerz Store and you will get a fun prize.  This week there has been some amazing deals so check them out. Also there are quite a few new items in the store as well. Some of which I used today!!

Scrapping Wonders and Accent Scrapbooking Blog Hop

Aloha!!

Welcome, Whether your a regular follower of mine or you are here to follow the hop today I want to welcome you to my place!! I love that I have a place that you can come and get to know me through my art!!

Today the Scrapping Wonders Design Team is collaborating with Accent Scrapbooking. Accent Scrapbooking has amazing flair badges that come in lots of styles and colors. They are so beautiful. Today we are using these for our project.

I will have the line up at the end of my post if you get lost along the way. Be sure to comment along the hop and you will be entered into the drawing for prizes of a $15.00 gift certificate to Scrapping Wonders and a $25 (Canadian) gift certificate to Accent Scrapboking. You should have come from PinkPie’s site, wasn’t it the Traveler’s Notebook gorgeous!! I love the cover work.

Let’s look at what I created for today:

IMG_0206

I used the Mixed media Traveler’s Notebook Insert from the Scrapping Wonders store. I love how this paper really holds up to any of the media I want to add to my pages. Today I added some Crushed Coral Shimmerz mixed with light modeling paste to make it lighter and more of a whipped look. I used a 6X6 Echo Park houndstooth stencil across the page. I didn’t want the edged lines of the stencil to be really harsh so I added torn strips of patterned paper in layers on the top and bottom of the stencil marks.

IMG_0211.jpg

I layered some exclusive cut files from Clique Kits with splatters of Shimmerz Vibez and Spritz. I also attached a label from Pretty Little Studio with my mini attacher. I added the date multiple times to create that ghosting effect you get by stamping multiple ties without re-inking the date stamp.

IMG_0214.jpg

I did more layering on the top edge of the stenciling. I made smaller layers and a thinner cut file leaf insert with a flair badge. The thickness of the Mixed media paper of this insert will really hold up well with the flair’s weight too.

For the opposite side I added this grid patterned paper because it mimicked what was on the flair badge. I also wanted to mimic the muted colors that were in the pack of flair badges too. I used a black and white square photo.

IMG_0207.jpg

I added hints and pops of color among the layers of silver and grey. It really adds to lazy look when I took this image first thing in the morning before my coffee. Before the color of the day breaks free as the warm coffee starts to wake me up and the yummy yogurt flavor bursts life into my day.

IMG_0209.jpg

I added my title by using this script font words from the Tales and Dreams Collection at Pretty Little Studio. I also made sure to use the same cut file, label and even some of the torn patterned paper as the other side to tie the whole spread together.

I love how this brings your eye across the whole spread.
