Create a Dazzling Raspberry Red Scrapbook Layout.

Don’t you just love red, and with the month of love we are celebrating raspberry red with loads of repetition. I created this shimmering layout using tons of red ink and then added a few splashes of other color for some fun contrast. Take a look at how I created the fun shimmering elements, stamped with the amazing new raspberry red shaded Glamorous VersaFine Clair and had fun with repeating elements in my design.

Step 1 – Add a small amount of Creative Shimmer onto your Craft Mat. Add a few drops of dye inkers to the medium. I added 2 colors of red.

Step 2 – Mix the inker into the paste really well using your palette knife until the paste is fully colored.

Step 3 – Apply the colored paste through a stencil onto craft paper and leave to dry. The creative medium dries really fast and has a stunning shimmer.

step 4 – Use the same inkers to color a piece of smooth white cardstock. Drop a few drops onto the cardstock and mist with water.

Step 5 – Apply some of the colored paste onto the colored cardstock using the same square stencil.

step 6 – Color a sheet of white cardstock with the same red inkers. Once dry stamp some images onto the background using VersaFine Clair Glamorous.2018_Feb_JN_step6

step 7 – Add random color splats using Fireworks sprays to add color to the background. Cut out flowers from patterned papers and adhere them. Then stamp some random text in the background using VersaFine Clair.

step 8 – Use VersaFine Clair Pinecone and stencil some dots onto the background. Then adhere your photo. Cut stenciled squares with a beautiful shimmer from the papers and adhere to the layout. Add diamanté to finish off.

Kaisercraft Documented Layout with hints of colour by Jowilna Nolte

Hi everyone, Jowilna here on the blog today sharing a Documented layout with a hint of colour. I simply love this range but wanted to add a touch of colour.

detail4_JN

I started off creating my mixed media inked background using re-inkers.
The effect left a hint of cream, yellow, a beautiful grey and even some blue and green colours visible once the ink had dried.

love this layout_JN

A variety of Collectables elements added the yellow tones and for the blue/green I added some scrunched up thread under my photo.
This multicoloured thread gave me the interest and hint of colour I craved.

A couple of coloured splats offers the accent colours support and makes for a nice detail.

detail6_JN

Mini Typography stenciled detail works well on the background. I could have added the stenciled details in a colour come to think of it.
It just shows you how versatile this range is – perfect for everyday moments, school days, vintage, heritage and boys.

Where there is Love Art Journal page

With the month of love heading our way it’s time start pulling out all those love themed crafting projects.
Today I am sharing some art journaling inspiration using POP Paint and stamps for a bright and love filled spread.detail1

I wanted a fun and happy page with a few key elements and a nice focal point. Not too bright but with the right amount of colour
and I think I achieved exactly what I had in mind.

love valentines art journaling page

step 1 -Dry brush some Burst (orange) POP Paint onto your background in a random fashion.

step1

step 2 – Once the orange is dry, dry brush some Blush POP Paint over it and leave to dry.

step 3 – Trace a heart shape onto your background using a pencil. Use a coloured dye ink spray and remove the nozzle from the bottle
and trace around the heart shape. Leave to dry.

step2

step 4 – Use Onyx POP Paint and some stencils to add details. Lift a small amount of black paint with a sponge dauber and tap off the excess.
Pounce through the stencil design to transfer a thin layer of paint onto your page. Leave to dry.

TIP: The thinner the layer applied the quicker it will dry.

step3

step 5 – Use your fine print stamps and black ink and stamp over your entire page for some added details.

step4

step 6 – Add some stamped heart and sentiment details to finish off your page. Use a white gel pen and draw some details on your page.

step5

POP paint makes for amazing coloured art journaling pages and can be used in a multitude of ways.
What have you done with your POP Paint lately – and what colour combinations have you tried?
The possibilities are endless.

I created loads of beautifully stamped leaves using a stamp I designed and made by Celebr8 in South Africa.

JN_step1

Ink a leaf stamp using your Oasis Green Versamagic ink pad. Lightly mist the inked stamp with water and stamp the image onto technique cardstock. Clean your stamp with your stamp shammy.
JN_step2

Ink your stamp only partially with Versamagic Turquoise Gem. Mist the inked stamp with water. Position the stamp over the original stamped image and stamp.
JN_step3

TIP: Don’t stress if the stamp is not lined up perfectly this just adds to the watercolour look and perfectly imperfect feel of the image.

Ink your cleaned stamp with Versamagic Night Sky only in selected areas, mist with water and stamp over the first two layers. You now have a beautifully stamped multi-coloured and dimensional leaf image.
JN_step4

TIP: Repeat the first step stamping your image using Versamagic Oasis Green. Always stamp the lightest colour first and then layer your darker colours on top. Darker colours are easier to layer onto lighter colours than what it is to layer light colours onto dark.

Stamp your image again only partially using Brilliance Pearlescent Poppy. Ink the cleaned stamp only partially using the Brilliance ink. Mist with water and then stamp the image. The Brilliance ink gives the pigment ink below a beautiful shimmering effect.

JN_step5

Finish off your stamped images with another layer of partially stamped Versamagic Night Sky.
JN_step6

Cut out your stamped leaves and ink the edges as desired.

With a few easy steps and changes of ink colours and layers you can create a beautiful variety of stamped elements for cards and layouts.

Create a beautiful shimmering layered chipboard wreath
Use your Versamagic Oasis Green and ink the chipboard element using the direct to paper technique. Lightly pat the ink pad onto the chipboard repeatedly until it is covered in a solid layer of ink
JN_step8

Add a layer of Versamagic Turquoise Gem on top of the first layer of ink.
JN_step9

Add a layer of Versamagic Night Sky ink here and there. Notice how I only lightly inked the edges using this darker shade of ink.

TIP: Leave the layers of ink to dry a bit in between inking. If the ink is too wet and you add another colour you may contaminate your ink pad with the previous colour. You can heat set the ink layers for a few seconds just to dry them slightly.

JN_step010

Add some red highlights by using your Brilliance Pearlescent Poppy ink pad and inking the outside edges.

JN_step011

 

Add a few drops of Distress Oxide Worn Lipstick directly onto your inked chipboard element. Mist the ink drops with water and let the ink flow and bleed all over the chipboard. Leave to dry or heat set using your heat gun.

JN_step012

Paint a thin layer of All-Purpose Champagne Mist over the entire chipboard element. This layer will not only make the coloured chipboard shine and shimmer, but it will blend all the colours beautifully and seamlessly together for a stunning well inked effect.
