Card with Jane Davenport INKredible Inks

Want to make a beautiful background that practically leaps off the paper?  Then let me show you how amazing Jane Davenport’s INKredible inks look on Yupo and you will be racing to the store to grab the supplies and try this yourself.

Create your own Yupo Background Step-by-Step

  1. Spray Yupo with water and drip on a little of each colour of Incredible ink
  2. Spritz with water from a height to create a pattern – the pattern will be more prominent on areas that have begun to dry
  3. Add a few spots of pearlescent acrylic paint and spray with water to make the color wick
  4. Spritz with alcohol blender from a height of approx. 30cm to create additional patterns
  5. Dry carefully with a heat gun – too close and your Yupo will buckle or warp – be careful
  6. Allow any remaining areas to air dry.
  7. Mount on a backing card (to keep it flat) and spray with an acrylic sealer (eg Crystal Clear)

Just look how beautiful this is – simply amazing.

To create the card

  1. Trim Washi Girls Washi sheet into separate images
  2. Add stamping to the background using Archival inks
  3. Cut shapes using Spellbinders dies and emboss using Lindy’s Embossing powder
  4. Add ribbon, washi girl and embossed die cute to background
  5. Add color to washi image using Paint Over Pens
  6. Add a little sparkle using Mermaid Markers
  7. Outline image using block acrylic in a fine liner bottle
  8. Mount onto base-card to finish

Ordinary People – Mixed Media Art Journal Page

So nice to be here again!
I cannot believe it is almost October… term 4 of the school year is almost upon me with its many speech days and dance recitals (wish me luck!)

Super glad to be able to set some arty time aside to wip up this cute art journal page for you.

Simple & sweet, using Jane Davenport’s fab A4 washi sheets.


These washi pages are so beautiful, just as they are. They make for a wonderful focal point on a quick page of relaxation!

I have also been stencil shopping and now have a whole bunch of new stencils that I cannot wait to take for a spin. You should check out all the stencils Kylie has available… so many to choose from!

I use three within the background for this page.

TCW601s- Poppy Field; TCW761s – Solemn branches; TCW450s – Art Deco Leaves

… with all the colour splashed around this page I felt I needed a little relief and found it by using the Stamper’s Anonymous Flower Garden cling stamps.


I stamped them in simple black ink on white card.

Lastly, a little doodling with some Dye-na-flow inks in brush pens (an old favourite) and a quick sentiment to finish off.

Enjoy watching the video!
