The Place Home Canvas

Hello, everyone, I hope you all enjoyed your weekend. We had a very cold Sunday even the school will be closed on Monday due to inclement weather. It's the best time to stay home and craft. This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, we have our first “anything goes” challenge of 2015! That’s right! It is time to cut loose and go for it.

I always have fun to create mixed media canvases to decorate my craft room.

Although I love all the seasons I really wish spring would be here already. This week I decide to create a mixed media canvas with Prima Flowers and butterfly to display on the wall of my craft room.

I made the texture with modeling paste, and added some sentiments with Tim Holtz Chitchat Stickers and metal embellishments on this canvas. 

Die cut these hearts with Tim Holtz Mini Heart Movers and Shapers and Distress them with Tim Holtz Mini Distress Ink Pads. 

Pasted the sentiments with Tim Holtz Chit Chat Stickers that were distressed with Memento Black Ink.

Attached more Prima Flower metal embellishments using Tombow Glue. The leaves were die cut using Prima Flower Leaves Metal Die.

Art Journal Hello Gorgeous

Hello, everyone, today, I'd like to share an art journal page featuring new ColorBox Petal Point Pigment inks. Spring arrives in March, but I just can't wait to use these beautiful colors to make a spring themed journal page and share with you all.

To start this page, watercolor the background with Izink inks and water mixture.  Spray the patterns using ColorBox Art Screens and Smooch Spritz® by Donna Salazar.

On another piece of watercolor paper, use the same method to create watercolor background using Izink inks, and spray the patterns using ColorBox® Art Screens - By Ann Butler.

After the watercolored paper is dry, stamp the butterfly images using Hero Arts Stamp and ColorBox Petal Point Pigment inks. Heat emboss the image with ColorBox® Embossing Powder using a heat tool.

Die cut the butterflies using the same Hero Art stamp and die set, and attach the butterflies on the journal page using 3D Foam Squares. Distress the journal page using ColorBox Petal Point Pigment inks.

I hope you like this art journal page and are inspired to create something beautiful using ColorBox Petal Point Pigment inks. Happy crafting!

Art Journal Paradise

Hey, lovely crafty friends, I am so happy you are back. This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, we'd invite you to share your creations and be inspired from a blissful place - your personal happy place and paradise. Probably you are dreaming of sandy beaches and the sound of ocean waves, or you’re inspired by a tropical shore, exotic travels. Maybe you simply want to play around with a new technique and be in a crafter’s paradise this week. Join us and have fun!

I was dreaming of the sunny beach and inspired to create an ocean themed art journal page.

The beach on a sunny day is always my paradise since I grew up in Tawian, a beautiful island surrounded by the Pacific Ocean.

I watercolored the background of this art journal page with Clearsnap Izink inks, and stenciled the patterns with Heidi Swapp Color Shine and ColorBox Art Screens.

The images were stamped with Tim Holtz Mini Blueprints Nautical Stamps and heat embossed with ColorBox Clear Embossing Powder.

There are some Tim Holtz and Prima Flowers metal embellishments were attached on this page using Tombow glue. 

Some glitters were sprinkled on the cheese cloth to create the sparkle. 

I really enjoy the beautiful sunshine and the blue ocean on this journal page and hope you are inspired to create your paradise on your project.
