Warren Creations – Christmas JOY

Hey guys, Jesse here from warrencreations with another Lulu Art Project.  I am so excited as It is my time again to share with you my tutorial which takes you through my process for creating the the image below.

Wow can you believe that it is Christmas already? By golly this year has gone so fast!
This will be my last lulu art tutorial ladies and gentlemen. 😦 I wanted to do something big a special but that did not happen. My laptop died (R.I.P) half way through this tutorial so I lost all my video footage! Thankfully I had taken photos on another camera.  So you are just stuck with me giving you the breakdown in the steps below and if you like, watch the slide show I put together with some themed Christmas tunes at the end of this tutorial 🙂

Step 1: Background and face elements

I used the dylusions journal  ( A BRAND NEW ONE THAT IS ABOUT TO BE BROKEN IN). For the background, I used an inkjet printer and printed some verses on adhesive A4 paper. My printer uses what is known as “Dura Brite Ultra Ink” that is a waterproof and smudge proof ink so I can put paint and wet mediums on top with no bleeding or ink running. I also tried doing the same method above but printed on tissue paper but the final page was a little too textured for this project so I went with the a4 adhesive paper version instead.

Ontop of the adhesive paper I used dylusions paint rubbing with a baby wipe to make sure to only apply a thin layer. I stamped a stamp that I thought looked like snow flakes around the edge of the page to create a frame and a border. I then traced a face using the Jane Davenport face stencil and blocked in some basic skin tone and facial features.

Step 2: Block out Hair

Using neocolour crayons I shade in a basic layer of hair. While this layer is still wet, I go over with a similar tone in acrylic paint blending the two as I go. Add a layer of white acrylic paint to the eyes.

Step 3: Define elements 

Define the hair, lips and skin to add contrast and shading . I used a mixture of acrylic paint, dylusions paint, tombow markers, prisma colour pencils and neocolour crayons to build up thin layers. This process can take some time but is where it all comes together.

Step 3: Add antlers 

I sketched a antler onto a scrap bit of paper. I then scanned into my computer to play around the sizing. I printed out multiple sizes so I could chose the correct one that I though best suited. I cut out the one that I was happy with and traced around with a dark neocolour crayon. I then flipped the antler horizontally to create a mirror effect and traced out it in the same way. I then blocked in a layer of colour using dylusions paint.

Step 4 : Add Background Elements

Using a jpeg image I brought online, I cut the stencil out with my brother scan and cut machine. (The best toy ever if you want to make your own stencils) I used a make up wedge to pounce dylusions paint though the stencil. I did multiple passes though each to build up the strong colour.

Step 5: Define the stencil elements

Using liquitex matte medium as a glue, I pounced the medium over the painted image and added glitter in the same colour as the paint. I pressed the glitter down finger and a bit of pressure to make sure it had good contact with the matte medium. Once Dry, I used liquitex gloss varnish to further seal and loose glitter.

Step 6: Use washi tape

Using sliver washi tape, I used to give the appearance that the decorations were hanging from the top of the page.

Step 7: Keep building up definition 

Define any further elements that need more work such as the hair, build the colour up in the eyes, eye lids. Keep creating thin layers of colour until you are happy.

Step 8: Fine Details

Define further all the little details and elements such as the eye lashes, lips, jewellery ect

Step 9: Fake Snow

Use fake snow paste to build up interest. This paste already has a sparkle too it but I added extra glitter over the top for something extra special and to help tie in the glitter elements on the other page.

Step 10; Add a final verse

DSCN1578

Using my inject printer and clear adhesive printer paper, I am able to create my own “transparent transfers” I then add paint and my own elements over the top to help blend the layer into the piece and make it look like it belongs.

And that is it! I hope you enjoy it. Merry Christmas to you and your family. Hope your christmas is filled with lots of good food, laughter and happy memories.

Warren Creations – Express Yourself

Hey guys, Jesse here from warrencreations with another Lulu Art Project.  I am so excited as It is my time again to share with you my tutorial which takes you through my process for creating the the image below.

DSCN1478

This lesson for me was all about learning to let go and be free. Do what makes you happy, learn to let got and be yourself. Focus on the moments that make you happy and forget the ones that dont. No one can make you feel anything less then the beautiful person that you are.

I have become quite addicted to colour lately.  The delicious pots of colour from the dylusions range are just the best.

 

I have been sticking to my word and have been using my journals and I am really loving

I find it hard to actually use my bound journals, I guess I am more of a loose page kind of guy. If it dose not work out, its only a piece of paper/card but whilst in a journal, seems to be more permanent piece of art. I am trying to teach myself that even though I may not like or be happy with each piece I create, its a about a journey and its nice to see the progression.

For this reason I have set myself a goal to do art work more in my journals.

This week I wanted to try do something a bit different and try to use up a stash of supplies that I would save because they were too pretty! Come on guys,we all do it!
With my birthday having just been yesterday, I thought I would take this opportunity to create some cards.

This is a fun process and I really enjoyed the simple and care free nature of it. It all came as very relaxing to me and if only I had the time to create more cards! (My Card box is looking empty) Oh well, that can be a bucket list for another day!
