Breaking out the art foamies and my dylusions paints

Breaking out the art foamies and my dylusions paints

Hello, there crafty folks,

It’s art journal Wednesday and this week I kept it short and sweet. I have been tired lately from day job work and I needed a little unwind one evening. I just received a new batch of Art Foamies and I decided getting paint all over me was just what I needed. For this project I:

  1. Grabbed two sheets of mixed media paper
  2. Took out several of my favorite dylusions paint colors
  3. Used my new gelli plates from the Dylusions Dina Wakley collaboration
  4. Picked two new art foamies to use.

I first applied the Dylusions paints to my Gelli plate, only 2-3 colors at a time and then flipped it onto the mixed media paper to make the background. This was quick, messy and fun!. I then grabbed my Art Foamies and dabbed them in black paint and stamped them onto my paper. I was first using my Gelli plate as my palette but that just didn’t hold enough paint for me. I then switched to by stamp buddy (the applicator that comes with the art foamies) and that did the trick. I did one sheet with a rose and the other with a start. I have really been in the mood lately to just make backgrounds and use my stamps on them to stash away for ATC swaps, happy mail, journal swaps or just for use later for a quick page.

You can see the photos below of how they turned out

Also here is my process video to get more detail on how I got these looks: https://youtu.be/YYGsfW91D_k

 

As always thanks for stopping by and I’d love to hear from you. Let me know if there are other posts you’d like to see, projects, how-to’s or just say hello.

It’s Art Journal Wednesday with a Sewing Machine Art Journal Crossover share!

Hello,

Phew, what a week last week was. I was on vacation but had family in town and it was wonderful. I got to spend some really great quality time with my niece and nephews and spend a day at the beach, a few days in the pool. We really all need that, to just unplug every so often to recharge. Well I am back with a new art journal share this week. It’s not alcohol lift-ink this time, I thought I would give you folks a break and do something in my Dina Wakley Media Journal with scribble sticks, art tags and my sewing machine. That’s right, you heard me, I put my journal thru the sewing machine and I am hooked. The wheels are churning and more goodies i’m sure will follow now that I have a taste for it.

You can watch the video here: https://youtu.be/Gdi7V59A9aE

Here are some shots of the journal page. Such fun!

If you notice the girls face is from my previous post on Dina Wakley backgrounds:http://sidestreetdesign.com/2018/07/journaling-on-the-go-dina-wakley-scribble-sticks-stamps-background/

I hope these photos will get those wheels turning and you will try your own hand at sewing in your journal and play with new mediums together.

Another Alcohol Lift-Ink Test, but with ArtFoamies!

Another Alcohol Lift-Ink Test, but with ArtFoamies!

Hello wonderful crafters,

I know I know, my fourth post in a row on Alcohol Lift-Ink but I am hooked. This time I had played with rubber stamps and stencils as you have seen but I wondered, would it work with my Artfoamies. Guess what, it did! but it has to be clean. If you have paint caked on your Artfoamies it probably won’t work, but if you have some clean ones give it a go. For this play, I used my 8″ x 10″ Yupo Alcohol Ink white cardstock paper. I wanted very bright colors, so I grabbed some of my neon alcohol inks in Lemonade, Raspberry, Pool, and Gold. I blended them using the Alcohol Ink Blending Solution and added some shimmery gold accents. I first tired a butterfly Artfoamie that didn’t give a very clean print but still had a cool aged effect. Next, I tried a new circle Artfoamie and that gave a clear print and very cool transfer onto a Dylusions Media Tag.

I hope these last few posts have really gotten you excited about the Alcohol Lift-Ink and wanting to give it a try. It is just such a great new technique to add a great ghosting look to your tags, cards, whatever you can think of. Now, this will be my last post for a week or two as I have some family coming into town and I am going to take some downtime to spend with them, so as always happy crafting! Stay inspired, and create art every day.

Friday the 13th – Alcohol Lift Ink Skull Stencil Background

Friday the 13th – Alcohol Lift Ink Skull Stencil Background

Hello folks,

I am back with a special post for Friday the 13th! I was sitting at work today thinking about the awesome new Tim Holtz Alcohol Lift Ink and about Friday the 13th, and about the cool new skull stencils I got and I couldn’t wait to get home to have a play. I got home, tucked into my studio and made a quick messy alcohol ink background on 8″ x 10″ Yupo paper then tried the Alcohol Lift Ink thru one of my new skull stencils and cool doesn’t cover it. I found my new addiction folks, but I need to do it sparingly until Ranger gets stocked back up on their fabulous alcohol inks.

First layeredrd the alcohol ink with blending solution on the background

Next, I then stamped with the Tim Holtz Newsprint stamp and the Dylusions Cobweb stamp using black Archival Ink.

Last,ly I laid down my stencils and used the felt applicator with Alcohol Lift-Ink Reinker on it to go thru the stencils to create the white areas.

…..I hear those wheels turning!!!

This will be great cut up for a nice card front and maybe some artist trading cards!
