Mixed Media Canvas with Pastel Colors

This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, from soft shabby chic colors to white washing with gesso, being inspired by Easter to using actual pastels, we challenge you to be inspired by the softer side of the color wheel.

I was inspired to use the soft color scheme on my mixed media canvas.



I always love soft and feminine colors on my projects. After creating textures on the background with  Liquitex Modeling Paste and Prima Flowers Raindrop Stencil, I colored the canvas with Distress Spray Stain and distressed it with Distress Paint.


Some beautiful Prima Flowers were attached using Prima Flowers Heavy Gesso.


All the embellishments were distressed using Art Dauber with ColorBox Ink pad and Distress Mini Ink Pads.


To finish off this project, I applied the Gesso randomly on the background and embellishments to soften the color scheme.

Art journal Illustration

Hey, my dear friends, I'd like to share some art journal pages I did recently. I had fun drawing these images and I am still trying to do the journaling. 

The watercolor effect on the background on these pages was created with Izink inks and water mixture. I used Clearsnap ink pads and stamps to create the background patterns. All the illustrations were colored with watercolor


The edges of the pages were distressed using Distress Ink Pads.



ColorBox Smooch Spritz and Izink Ink were used to make the background.



Apply the ColorBox Cat's Eye ink pads directly on the page to create the patterns.





The wing was colored with Gesso.

I hope you like my journal pages and thank you so much for stopping by my blog.

Stamp in Different Ways Butterfly Art Journal

Hey, my dear crafty friends, it's time for a new theme at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. Do you have stamps that are versatile? That can be used many ways? This week we challenge you to use a stamp multiple ways on the same project or use the same stamp in different colors or ways on multiple projects!

I had fun to play my butterfly stamp in different ways on my art journal page.


I was inspired to create this art journal with different ways using Tim Holtz Rubber Stamp Watercolor Butterfly. For the background I watercolored some images with Distress Mini Ink Pad, and embossed some images with ColorBox Petal Point Pigment Inks and Clearsnap Clear Embossing Powder. The dimensional butterfly embellishments were stamped and embossed on the canvas fabric.

This is the embossed butterfly using Colorbox pigment ink and clear embossing powder.


To create the watercolored butterfly, I inked the stamp with Distress Mini Ink Pad, spritzed it with water then stamped the image on the journal page. 


The butterflies on canvas fabric were stamped with Colorbox Crafter's ink, and colored with Distress Inks and a brush pen.


I hope you enjoy my project and use your favorite stamp in different way to create your next project.
