Layers

Today I have a fun and vibrant double-page journal spread to share with you as a part of the Happy Little Stampers June Challenge.

I was inspired by Kate Palmer’s Videos on layering techniques and journaling and I combined a few of those for this spread.

GDT for Tubby Crafts

Hello everyone,

Today I am delighted to be guest designing for Tubby Crafts. It has been fun playing with the Die Ink Pads and the Stamp Set sent to me by Shruti!

The inks were great for water-colouring, background creation as well as stamping.

I have created three projects with these supplies- Floral Invitation Stamp Set; Dye Ink Pads- Hot Pink, Imperial Red, Lemon Yellow, Jet Black, Tangy Orange and Lawn Green.

Here’s a look:

First up, is an invitation card, with a vellum envelope.

My second project is a Journal Page.
My final project is a pair of ATC Cards.

 

My Happy Place

Did you view the Journal Page tutorial using Gel Press yesterday? Well today, we have used the remaining pieces with the same colours lifted in yesterday’s video and created a completely different page. This one is with elements, depth and dimension.

We were inspired by :

The Moodboard at Scrap n Pieces for the April Challenge– “My Favorite Things” for us is ‘My Happy Place’- being in nature, with flowers blooming, birds chirping and butterflies flying. We were also inspired by the colour palette and the various textures on the board.

Crafter’s Castle April Challenge– For us Dimension is in the form of all elements against each other, adding depth and giving the real feel.

Here’s the link to the tutorial in case you missed it:

Live, Create, Tell your Story

You see how powerful the title is! It is something we resonate with and today we are here to show you a journal cover we created for ourselves. This year, we decided to go beyond a book for journaling! Last year, most of our books got so bulky that they wouldn’t close and we had baskets all around our house!

So this year, we’ve done up our covers on chipboard, and we’ll use some rings to keep our journal pages between these covers as and when we create.

We always need positivity, motivation, love around us and we represent this in our journal covers. Here’s a look at it, before we talk more about it.

Feb Lindy 1

It says it all- ‘Fall in Love with as many things as possible’ and we today urge you all to fall in Love with yourselves. Peep inside, and reflect. Any journey begins with loving yourself, and then you Live, Create and Tell your Story. The colours we used for this our the pink tones- Shade of Red, which to us are LOVE. This is one creation, which makes us proud of ourselves. While working on our covers, we also created a quick journal page to go inside it- that again is filled with positivity. Our insides of the front and back cover- have quotes, that sure will pump us up every time we open it. We were inspired by the Path of Positivity Challenge Blog and their February Theme- Shades of Red; by the mood board and colours at Lindy’s February Challenge; the Take Note theme at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge; Words & Paintery February Challenge- Love is all around

We’ve used Lindy’s Gang Products (Colours linked below); Prima Marketing- Stencil; Finnabair- Mediums, Art Stones, Waxes, Matallique Paints, Glitter, Stamps; Papericious -Chipboard and assorted chippies from our stash; Tim Holtz- Mini Motivation Stamps; Peek-a-boo Designs- Stencil

No fuss journaling

Today we’re here to show you our latest journal page. The title says it all, we decide to work with minimal elements and create a page within 5 minutes. Sometimes, art doesn’t have to be complicated, the less the better and trust us it’s effective!

So here’s a look at our page

Feb Scrap n pieces JP 1Feb Scrap n pieces JP 2Feb Scrap n pieces JP 4Feb Scrap n pieces JP 3Feb Scrap n pieces JP 5Feb Scrap n pieces JP 6

We were inspired by the January Moodboard at Scraps n Pieces Blog. The colours, the image of the drink and ‘Baby it’s cold outside’. So we used these and decided to journal. When it’s cold and you just want to relax, you don’t want to work too hard, and our page reflects that mood as well.

Gift Box and Journal Spread on Black

Hello everyone,We are excited to be back with our second post for Rinea:-)!

Today we’ve used the Love and Mettalics pack and created a mixed media journal page and a gift box! With Valentine’s soon approaching, we decided to make a gift box, as the foiled papers are perfect for them.

Here’s a look at the gift box:

 

 

 

 

We used the Papericious ready die cut box and decorated it with Rinea Papers. We first cut for our sides and the top. Then, we ran the paper for the sides, through an embossing folder, to add some interest. We then adhered them to the base of the box. We finally die-cut some swirls with a contrasting paper and stuck them on the sides and the top to complete it.  Doesn’t it make a perfect gift for your loved ones!?

Next, let’s have a look at our Journal Spread.

 

 

 

 

 

These papers were so pretty and vibrant that we decided to create a spread in our Black Book! For this spread, we’ve used two stencils and add some Art Alchemy paint through them for the background! We then used multiple Lindy’s Sprays and added splatter randomly. Next, we punched circles from various colours of the foiled paper. We used two sizes so we could punch within the bigger circle as well giving us rings. We also die cut a few elements and layered all of these on our prepped background! We completed it with a few word stickers!
