canvas *CUTE*

Today a small photo of little me.

First I applied some paints with a palette knife.
Took a beautiful stencil from Hobbyshop Sandra 
and some modeling paste to create the background.
The gorgeous purple berries are from Scrap-Unlimited.

Painted the chipboard butterflies with a nice amount of gesso.
While still wet I took a tooth-pick and made the small circular figures.

Flower cluster, touched by some gesso.

Some white wooden beads as an extra touch.
They came from an old necklace.

Aren't these berries super gorgeous?!! It look as if they are dipped in micro beads....heeee just thinking.... that's an idea! LOL! 

Enjoy your day!

art journal page "love what you do"

Just love what I do!! 
Being creative, playing with paints, colors, stencils.....it's so relaxing! :)
Today another page in my art journal.

Started this page by painting with three colors.
Once dry, I applied some modeling paste by using three stencils, from Hobbyshop Sandra,
two stencils with the lines and a doily one.
I made the lines with a black and white marker.
The chipboard heart, which I painted with the purple paint, is also from Sandra.
Used some gesso with a spong to soften up the edges.
Gesso is from 13arts, which I absolutely love. 
It has a great white finish!

I also did some stitching.

Enjoy your day!

art journal page and two tags

Hello my creative friends!

Sounds familiar? You start working on a project and you just can't stop creating with 
that color combo or that specific stencil or embellishment.
This is just what happened last week! :)
It all started with one stencil and three colors.
And of course there had to be turquoise in it as well! 
Made a first page in my art journal from Finnabair and two tags.

The inside and first page of my art journal.
Created the texture with modeling paste and a stencil.
A little bit of stamping, some splatters and a touch with gesso.
The chipboard butterfly got a coat with some gesso as well.

And here are the tags:

Same stencil and same colors, sorry couldn't stop playing! :)

All of the flowers got a touch of the gesso.

Some micro beads, applied with gel medium.

The stencil, paints and some gesso.

The chipboard butterfly and stencil are from Sandra's Hobbyshop, 
an online store here in the Netherlands.
They have a lot of mixed media products and lots of gorgeous stencils!
You can find them HERE

Enjoy your day!
