Live Gently – Mixed Media Art Journal Page

20190519_162636.jpgHello once again Lulu Art peeps!

The video this week is the third and last in a series of three.

They all used Dina Wakley new release products. The new 6×6 white journal along with the pastel colours in the heavy body acrylic especially but also the wonderful ‘Branches’ stencil & mask set (LOVE this one!!)

All three of these pages were done in the one sitting.

This is how I would usually work, flipping between pages, using pages as palettes and then those same palette pages as backgrounds as I move along. I hardly ever have a plan to begin ( aside from what products I will begin using) and I basically just create problems with the paint and then try and reconcile those problems to some kind of solution.

On this day, this particular page was the first that I created. It is short, sweet & simple in its solution. I hope you enjoy the video.

Enjoy!

Hello again Lulu Art!
Have you taken a look at the New Dina Wakley products that Kylie has in store yet?… seriously AMAZING!

So I thought I would have a play

20190519_135147.jpg

The new square 6×6 watercolour journal and the new pastel paint range are both so easy to use with the existing bright heavy body acrylic range… I started the page with one of Dina’s stencils called ‘Wallpaper’

Next, I cracked open a favourite… the Collage Collective collage book….

DW-568519-2

If you love Dina’s work, you will not be disappointed with this journal fodder. Be warned though…the only thing you may have trouble with is actually cutting it up, as this collage book is beautiful just as it is!! – (I had to have one for keeps and one for using with this one!! )

Hope you have fun having a quick flick through during the video!

Flower Girl – Mixed Media Art Journal page

IMG_20190425_213052 (1)Always great to be back at Lulu Art! I hope everyone has been able to find some arty time in the last month?

Today I wanted to showcase Kylie’s fabulous face stencils from Artistcellar. I chose the 3/4 face ‘JOY’ for this small art journal page. These face stencils make journaling faces so quick and easy… more time for journaling and less time for stessing about face math and getting my proportions correct. Kylie has done almost all the work for you… yay!

I am also using some of StudioLight’s, Art by Marlene Signature Collection 3.0 in this video aswell… the texture plate and the HANDY size small journal. This collection will be coming to Lulu Art very soon… so keep your eye out for all the new goodies!

But that is not all… Darkroom Door’s great polka dot stencil, Dina Wakley Media – new colours and Prismacolor pencils get a work out as well.

So I hope you enjoy watching what I get up to this month.

Full list of all the supplies will follow this post.

Have fun watching!

Enjoy!

Just Delightful – Mixed Media Art Journal Page

So lovely to be back here at Lulu Art for 2019… !!

Back into my journal again… and you know I love to splash the paint around in there!
So… considering that I will be working closely with the “Art by Marlene” brand this year and Lulu Art stocks such a wide range of her lovely products, I thought I would grab one of her stencils, and a couple of Studio Light stamps in her range and see where we end up.

First I scribbled on some Liquitex black gesso (a staple for me) and then went at it with this gorgeous TCW (The Crafter’s Workshop) stencil TCW811 – floral statement

TCW-487707-2TUsing Dina Wakley heavy body acrylics in cheddar, eggplant, fuschia and turquosie I set to working up a background.

Then with these two stamps, I created this little story.

Bright and Beautiful Mixed Media Card

Hello beautiful Lulu Art fans, Kate here today with a bright and beautiful mixed media card to tempt you to get those stamps and inks out of the cupboard.

While there are a few steps, none of them are complicated, but just in case you need a little extra information I’ve filmed the whole process step-by-step.

Start by stamping the gorgeous stamp Woman with Birds from Carabelle Studio onto smooth card, using black Versafine ink.  Because there is such a large area of bold image (the hair) it’s likely that at least some port of this will not stamp perfectly!  Use the Jane Davenport Mermaid Marker in Shark’s Eye to color in any imperfections, and I’ve gone over the whole area of hair just to make it nice and dark.

Start working on the base card, I wanted something bright and pretty to offset the dark stamp so I’ve used a piece of Ranger Specialty Stamping Paper (where I was testing out the stamp) and colored this using Distress Oxide Inks swirled on using a small Tim Holtz Mini Ink Blending Tool.

Once the background is colored the way you like flick some water over the ink and watch the magic happen – for a softer bleaching effect blot the water with paper towel after about a minute.

Use Jane Davenport Magic Wand pencils to color your image going heavy on the shadows to create a high contrast face.

Water down AquaPastels and add a hint of colour to the area around the stamped image – just so the surroundings aren’t totally white, keep it light and bright.

Embellish image with Glitz Sea markers to add a little sparkle.

Color film strip ribbon with alcohol markers (I used Copics) so that it better matches your image and attach to card front using Glossy Accents – the ribbon is very twisty, so make sure to clamp with bulldog clips until the glue is dry or risk it springing off the card and rolling up!

Add ‘Be Brave’ word embellishment and mount card front onto coloured base layer and then mount onto folded card stock.

Attach a few small coordinating flat backed gems and the card is complete.

Supplies

Have fun creating your own card using these ideas,

Kate
