Spring is here - with Irit

 Hello my dear crafty  friends!
Irit is here and this is my Spring ART Journal spread made with a lot(I mean it) of WOW!Embossing Powders and as I am very new to art journalling I just hope you like my work.

First I used some acrylics to cover those pages with a mix of spring colours. Then I added some texture paste with masks using Memory box Modern Flower Power mask and a mix of embossing powders over it.
Powders used are:
Opaque Primary Sunny Yellow
Vanilla white
Opaque Pastel Purple
Primary Lemon
Then I added those masked children figures covered with a thick layer of Primary Lemon powder and I even heat embossed them twice to get this 3d look. I used Tando mask to make those figures.

Another Memory box mask was used to make the sun  on the left corner and I added both yellow powders used before and then some  Orange and a bit of Peach Gleam to get this sun look on my page.

As art pages should be flat (we do need to close the journal) I just added the stamped sentiment (stamped over tissue) and a bit of white pen doodling around.
Now it's your turn! Enter our monthly Spring challenge and you can win some lovely products to make your own art page too!
See you next month!

Rainbow Birthday Wishes Card

Hello! Nicole here with a brand new card to share with you guys. Today I wanted to share an easy way to create a watercolor background card using a background stamp set, embossing powder, and watercolor mediums. This card is super easy to create and you basically let the water do all the work!

To create the background, I stamped the Sexi-Hexi Stamp Set with Versamark on to a watercolor paper. Then I heat set it with Bright White Superfine Embossing Powder. Make sure you wet the whole layer with a clean water before adding colors.

I used few colors to create a rainbow background - this is my favorite color combination to use. You simply drop a color onto the paper and let the water blend colors together. You can either dry the layer with a heat gun, or let it dry naturally by leaving it for about 15 min or so.

For sentiment I used Everyday Sentiment Stamp Set and placed it on the bottom right color of the card. I didn't want to use any big or fancy greeting since I want the background to be a focal point.

I hope you enjoyed today's card! Thanks for checking in.

Watercolor inspiration

 Hi there Wow fans, this is Jenifer here with you today to share my project.  I drew my inspiration from this oh so talented team, from Nicole, did you happen to see her beautiful butterfly card?  I was drawn to it and just knew I had to give this technique a try.  She has a wonderful video of her process as well, you can check it out here :)
I chose the Lace stamp from WOW and just colored in some of the flowers with different colors of watercolor.  The image was a little hard to see on the white cardstock so I went around it with a smokey grey watercolor to make it pop just a little bit.

As you can see I need a little bit more practice but I am happy with the result.  This is a pretty easy technique and I will definitely be trying it again soon.  Thank you so much Nicole for the inspiration.

Inspired by...Laughter!

The theme for this month is 'Inspired By'.... and I've chosen to use a technique shared by Birgit Koopsen many moons ago in Craft Stamper Magazine. I adore this technique, and have used it rather a lot since Birgit first shared it with us! Basically, it's all about 'painting with powder'.....
Every last little bit of colour on this panel is embossing powder...
The background is created by layering lots and lots of colour on top of each other...creating an almost airbrushed effect!
The layers were created with regular powder, and I used ultra high powder (Ebony Black) to create the larger black splat effect.
Once the background is cold, Versamark ink can be sponged through a stencil, and then more powder sprinkled on top. Once melted in, it gives the seamless stencilled look...

I also added my favourite rose as a finishing touch.... Apple Red powder, with red glitter powder added to the mould first before pouring. This gives the glitter top coat finish...
As you all know, I love my paints, and using powder to paint with is just as much fun!
See you soon!

Wall Canvas

Hi all

For this month's project Iv'e focused on one of Irit's lovely wall canvasses as my inspiration.

I love the way Irit uses WoW Embossing powders on her canvasses so thought I would use up some of my embellishments to cover with powders and add to a canvas for home.

I placed tissue papers onto the canvas, painted it with white and green paint then when dry used my Embossing pen to add some dots which to which I added some pink powders. The feathers were Die cut then also embossed lightly with pink and white powders.

The main heart was cut out and another heart punched into it before embossing again with pink powders.   I used chipboard letterrs which I used for the main wording.

The heart and flowers were made by melting embossing powders then pouring them into the moulds (on the WoW website here)

The light greens, browns and pinks go well together. Back soon with another creation.
