Breathe – Bloom Girl Tag by Karen Knight

Karen_picHope you have all had a wonderful week.
Karen here with you again today to share with you a very quick , but fun distress marker coloured tag.  I fell in love with these Bloom Girls stamps, so I thought I would have a play with them this month. The stamps are great quality and are around the 4×6 inch size.  They produce a lovely image and are perfect for those of us who just want to run the other way when someone mentions drawing.. I’m sure I’m not the only one!

I can not colour to save my life.. but that is the beauty of Art.. nothing is wrong or right, and sometimes its best to just sit down, take a deep breath and jump right on in… plus colouring with Distress makers is a whole lot of fun!!    I hope you enjoy watching my little video.

You Are Enough by Karen Knight

Hi guys,
 
Karen with you again, and another tag to share with you today. I  fell in love with the Dina Wakley stamps the minute I saw them,  I absolutely love the look of the scribbled ladies, but I tend to struggle a little when I try to create things that have been done with complete creative abandon, so I knew sooner or later they would end up on a tag, and here it is.

I’ve teamed them up with another favourite – Distress paints, I juts love how fluid these are and how well they mix with a little spritz of water!
 
Thanks so much for stopping by, hope you are all having a wonderfully creative week!

Pretty Journal Cover by Monika Dabrowska-Ejmont

MonikaHello!   It’s Monika again 🙂

There was lot of sewing going on in my house lately.  So I got inspired by it. My mumma does it, 🙂  I just watch, admire the colours and touch and feel fabrics, laces, buttons. And I always wonder how it would look if I paint over that pattern or this one?  How paint will behave itself on it? What texture I will end up with? What else I can throw on it? 

So I decided to give it a go!  I made a journal ( notebook, book) cover. You can put on one journal and when you are done with it, you can transfer it on another.  Hope you like it.

Seeking the True Treasure by Monika Dabrowska-Ejmont

MonikaShe is like the cloud of shimmering beauty drifting in the depths of the ocean.

She is the seeker!   She is curious!   She is determined!

She is fragile looking, translucent and dreamy but strong at the same time!

That is how, I think, my story would start… and I am sure she would meet a sweet underwater kitty somewhere along the way.

Who knows maybe she can be my friend?

Today while I write this, the whole rain thing is making my mind float away to nice places .  Or maybe it’s just this yummy blue Celedon Silks acrylic glaze that has me inspired?!

Soooo ladies and gentleman! Here she is and she is ” Seeking the true treasures”.

Suzi Blu Girl Tag by Karen Knight

Guest_KarenKnight_ProfileThis week we have a surprise guest – Karen Knight.  Karen makes some amazing unique tags and was happy to do one especially for us to share on our blog.  Make sure you check out Karens own blog and have a look at all the other lovely creations on there. She is a very clever girl. Karen says “I have been creating for about the last 13 years. I love all things collage, inky and stamps and enjoy creating mostly on smaller spaces – like tags.”

This week Karen has designed this gorgeous tag using collage and distressing techniques and one of our Suzi Blu stamps called Forgetmenot.

Guest_KarenKnight_SuziBluTag

Karen’s Instructions:

“I started off by collaging a tag with book pages.  Then I randomly painted over the top with distress crackle paint. While I waited for the paint to dry I then stamped the Suzi Blu Girl image on another piece of book paper, and roughly coloured her using distress markers.  I also tore two wing type shapes from book paper and coloured them with distress stain.  When everything was dry I adhered them to the tag,  inked the edges using my distress markers. I used walnut stain distress and black soot distress marker around the edges, by swiping if along the edge  and rubbing it with my finger to smudge them both together.  I also smudged the black soot marker in the same way around my stamped image and wings.”

Products Used:

Suzi Blu Stamp – Forgetmenot
Studio – Multi Medium Gloss
Book Sheets/Collage Pack
Tim Holtz Distress Markers – Black Soot, Walnut Stain, Tea Dye, Worn Lipstick, Rusty Hinge
Tim Holtz Distress Crackle Paint – Picket Fence, Broken China

What a sweet project.  Let me know if you give it a go!
