I made this junk journal tags two months ago and gave it to my daughter’s teacher as a thank you gift for being such an awesome teacher.
I didn’t know that gelli printing can be so much fun until I tried it. The hardest part for me was the image transfer from a magazine. I made a lot of errors. I watched a video about it and the techniques was to use a small amount of acrylic paint and do not press the image too long on the gelli plate. Tried it and it worked. I will be doing a lot more gelli printing and will post them soon.
Hello everyone! For this project I used cereal box as my canvas. I applied gesso and scrapbook papers on the background. I also did some stenciling and stamping. I need to work on the eye lashes though because it looks sloppy and add more details on the lips. Thank you for looking. 🙂
My daughter asked me if I can create a planner that is small and colorful. She wanted a planner that looks handmade and not something that you print out off the computer. The size of the planner is 8 1/2 x 5 1/2.
I used We R Memory Keepers tab punch for each classes. For the cover decorations I used diecuts from Jillibeansoup, Shimelle and Simplestories.
Applied watercolor to each pages except for the front and back cover and used a thick scrapbook paper that has a watercolor effect.
I added some inserts to each class dividers for writing notes. I hope you like it and thank you for stopping by. 🙂
Hello! It’s been a while since I posted something on my blog and I apologize. I’ve been busy designing patterns. Anyway, I always wanted to learn how to paint with watercolors to add to my mixed media projects. So I did some research on what watercolors to buy. According to some of the artists they recommend Kuretake and Holbein watercolors. So I bought both Kuretake and Holbein and I like the vibrancy. I watched tutorials on YouTube and I’ll tell you it’s not easy as it looks. I’m having a hard time controlling how much water to add to the watercolor. I always adding too much water and ended up ruining my design.
Before I get started on a project I mixed colors first to see what it will look like on paper. I created a mixed color guide to help me decide what colors to use. I also practiced my brush strokes by blending colors from darker to lighter.
I think jellyfish are the easiest to paint so I decided to give it a try. I am happy how my jellyfish turned out. The colors are more vibrant and intense. I hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by. 🙂
