Working with tissue paper on an art journal page with PaperArtsy

The theme over on the PaperArtsy blog is tissue paper and different ways on how to use it in your mixed media projects. I was in a nautical mood, so I decided to use Scrapcosy’s stamps and create an art journal page. The tissue paper helps to align all the different layers and allowed me to stamp all the images without worrying about partial images. But see for yourself: Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed the quick video. Do you use tissue paper in your art? If yes, how? Supplies Used Some of my links are…

Spooktastic Halloween Card with PaperArtsy

Hi everyone, and welcome to a new post for PaperArtsy. This time it is all about stamp platforms, so I wanted to show you how you can create a spooktastic Halloween card with the help of the MISTI – or any other theme for a card using stamps and paints.

Grungy balance on a wood canvas – a project for ArtFoamies

Grungy Balance ArtFoamies Tutorial

Hi and welcome to a new tutorial for ArtFoamies. Today I’d like to share with you a “balanced” wood canvas. I prefer wood canvases over canvas fabric as it is sturdier and gives your projects a unique look. I started by applying the first layer of paint. A very easy technique, especially if you sometimes have difficulties with getting started, is to use a brayer. I applied a few drops of paint directly to the canvas and then just brayered all over it. For this project, I did that in two steps: first blue shades for the sky, then green…

ArtFoamies Mini Art Journal

Hi, and welcome to my first video tutorial for ArtFoamies. I really enjoy working with a Gel Press to create mono prints and thought that this would be the perfect technique to share with you for my first video as part of the design team. I decided to create a mini art journal made out of one single sheet of paper and then I used the ArtFoamies to decorate the background and to stamp the foreground for my cover. Enjoy the video!
