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.

 

Teal and Gold

Today we have a new challenge on the Happy Little Stampers Blog. The theme is Gold!

I decided to work with a combination of Teal and Gold on Black and created a journal page. I’ve used Lindy’s Gang Sprays, Art Alchemy Paints, Die cuts, Stencil, Sequins, flowers and sentiment stickers. I’ve used two StencilGirl® Stencils- Circuits Mini and Paint Tin & Butterflies.

Here’s a look at it:

Looking forward to your participation!

We’re submitting this to :

Mixed Media Place- April Challenge– The intent with this challenge of feeling uplifted and comforted, sharing positive vibes is reflected in our page. We used the contrast tones of gold and teal and added motivating phrases. We sure did stop, feel good and found bliss in this.

Crafters Castle Challenge #5– Our favourite technique is using a stencil and paint and splattering lindy’s sprays :-)!

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge– Animal Magic- For us, it had to be butterflies:-)!

Mixed Media Art-April Challenge– We incorporated the contrasting tones of blue (teal) and gold; our interpretation of ‘deep inside’ is in the form of trusting our own heart.

 

Open every door

We’re back with a quick journal spread.

This was fun and easy to create. We played with minimal supplies- Lindy’s Sprays- Poinciana Red Flame, Incandescent Copper, Bayou Boogie GoldBratwurst Brown Magical Shaker and Embossing Powders-Bratwurst Brown and Poinsettia Red Green; Dream On Stamp Set by FInnabair, Messy Script and Bussble Background Stamps, a black uniball pen and a mini embellishment we earlier created using the Papericious Ethereal Pack. We have a tutorial for the mini-embellishment-

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.

Spring Swap, Hop +Giveaway Aditi & Preety

Spring is here and boy we love it! Sometime back, a crafty friend Nuneka, asked us if we would be interested in being a part of a crafty swap, and we said yes! Scroll down to the end of the post for the hop details and a giveaway!

Today is the day when we finally reveal our creations. A little about the swap- we formed a small crafty group and we were each assigned a partner. We had to create something for our partner and keep it a secret. Our projects travelled across the globe and we spread some crafty love.

In this post, I, Aditi, will reveal the project that I created for my partner Preeti Dutta. I wanted to create something that she not only treasures but also can use. Hence I made her a journal. I bought a blank sketchbook and designed the covers using mixed media. Preeti told me she loves Blues and Greens and that was perfect as those were spring colours. The phrases that I used on the cover are not just motivational but also go with the spring blossom. Check the video link below for more.

I also made a card to go along with 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
