Video: Color Combinations with Dylusions Ink Sprays

Welcome to Part 2 of my Dylusions art journal series. Before I finally start using her products, I wanted to share one more information with you. And that is which colors work well together. I guess there are several color combinations with Dylusions ink sprays, but this combination is the “easiest” for me to work with. I (and Dyan Reaveley confirmed it during the class) sort colors for cold and warm tones. This way I don’t need to worry about brown or muddy colors when they accidentally mix together (which they will…) 🙂 Cool Colors In general, cool colors are…

Video Walk Through Large Dylusions Art Journal

large Dylusions art journal

Well, hello there! I was very quiet the last weeks and I’m sorry for that! There was just so much to do at my actual work (the one that pays for my hobby 😉 ) and I didn’t have any time to do something crafty. I was visiting a Dyan Reaveley class at Scrapbooking Forever this weekend and wanted to show you what we did to our large Dylusions art journal. It was an amazing class! I learned so much techniques for my art journal and how to be less critical with my work (let’s see how long that lasts…lol).…

Video: Mary On a Mixed Media Tag

Prima Marketing Tag

This gorgeous Prima Marketing stamp is in my stash for a while now and I haven’t used it yet. Can you believe that? (Probably, don’t we all have stamps that haven’t been used yet?). Anyway, I wasn’t in the mood for an entire journal page so I decided to create Mary on a mixed media tag. Tip: Instead of buying “expensive”, already cut manila tags you can buy a box of manila file folders and cut them with a tag die. I was a little lazzy and didn’t want to write down every step, so I thought that I could…

Video: Review of Shimmerz Paints Texturez & Dazzlerz Pastes And Two Tags

If you follow me on Instagram you have probably seen that I bought some of the Shimmerz Paints texture pastes called Dazzlerz and Texturez. For me they are a new company and I wanted to share my first impression with you. To show how they compare to Dreamweaver texture paste, I created the following video. Video Review of Shimmerz Paints Texturez & Dazzlerz Pastes For the review I used tags created with the Tim Holtz tag die, Tim Holtz and Dylusions stencils, and a regular palette knife. The video is a little longer. If you just want to see the…

Review : Art-C The Groove Blending Machine & Mini Haul

The Groove Tool

Hello everyone! I was a little shopping at Hobby Lobby and Michael’s today and bought some add-ons for my way too small stash of paper crafting tools (not…). One of the items I ran over by accident is the ‘groove’ tool from Art-C. I’m always a little skeptic with tools I haven’t seen or heard anything about before. But it was $20 and with the regular Hobby Lobby 40% off coupon even better. The packaging says that it is perfect for mixed media projects. It looks a little bit like my face cleanser brush, but the heads are totally different…
