mini journal…many techniques

Hello everyone!! today i am here to show you a little journal i created using a Basically Bare mini album and a variety of Art Anthology products.

most of the pages have been prepped using gesso and others i left bare just to get different effects using the different products

so grab yourself a little java and let’s take a boo!!

this page was created mainly with colourations, no gesso

beautiful you

on the next two pages i used some sunshine sorbet through the bubbles stencil by Art Anthology.. LOVE

beautiful water beautiful breathing

this one was pre gessoed …i love how the drippage turned out!! i ask used some butterfly embellies by Art Anthology on this page

beautiful toofor this page i used a bit of texture paste and lots of coloration and plain old water

beautiful rhythmoh how  i love the colours of these velvets and how this page turned out!!

beautiful mindthis page is mainly colorations but a bit of left over velvet from the page above.. i am a big believer in not wasting so i always try to create a start on a blank page prior to ‘starting’ it!!

beautiful curvesi hope you have enjoyed browsing through my pages and that you have become inspired to create your own!!




DLP – week one

hello everyone and happy new year to you.
today marked the first day/prompt of the new year from the ladies over at Art to the 5th (https://arttothe5th NULL.squarespace – the original Document Life Project.
i am going to try really hard this year to make time for ME each week. i am spending the year focusing more on my heART, healing and health.
i will also be creating with the following design teams, the ladies from the Dream Team (http://artanthologyinc, creating 3D madness over at Artist on the Block (http://theartistsontheblock with some lovely creative ladies and last but not least, creating art with heart with Eileen Hull’s (http://www NULL.eileenhull Inspiration Team.
yes.. it is indeed going to be a busy but i am so sure fulfilling year.
so here you go.. my first page in my Dylusions journal for DLP

i chose the colours of the day from our Resolution Run this morning… it was a good way to start my year!!
hope your day was just as good.

here is to 2015!!!

earthly seasons

today i am going to share with you a quick project i created..well quick minus the drying time that is

first i started with a 6×6 wood panel board and coated the whole thing with Art Anthology Stone Effects in Java..


i then added some Golden Crackle paste and set it aside for two days.   i wanted it to be good and dry before my next steps

layered Golden Paste

for my next step it was time to start layering on the colorations in a multitude of colours

IMG_4797IMG_4799IMG_4804now i had seen a really cool piece of art work somewhere where they added little gemstones to their piece of work and if i can find it i will definitely link it in here!!

i didn’t have gemstones but i do have a lot of those dewdrops from a few years ago so i dug some of them out and added them, in different sizes, throughout my piece


to finish my canvas off i add a bit, or a lot, of Art Anthology’s newest spray, Diamond!! love how it has just the right amount of sparkle!!
