The recipient of my August art journal page swap requested vintage. The front of the page uses images from Tumble Fish Studio. The background is made from stencils and acrylic paint. China markers were used for highlights. The back page uses a page from a vintage bird book, and egg images from Collage Stuff. The background is vintage text heat embossed with a background stamp. I used gelatos for the yellow and blue text pages. Thanks for coming by my blog to view my art journal page!
At the Collage Stuff Yahoo group, the August swap is themed "Say it with Flowers". I used images from 2 Collage Stuff collage sheets, sequin butterflies (Collage Stuff), glitter paint pens, and computer generated words. This woman image is my all time favorite woman image. Thanks for coming by to view my art!
At the Collage Stuff Yahoo Group, the June swap is a Summertime ATC swap. I used images from TumbleFish Studio. I used glossy accents to accent part or all of the women on the ATC's. I used sequin stars and red German scrap stars from Collage Stuff. Some of the ATC's have stenciled backgrounds with acrylic paints or markers. Stay cool this summer!
At the Collage Stuff Yahoo Group, the July swap is a puzzle piece challenge - use a puzzle piece in art submitted for this swap. I found a bag of puzzle pieces that I picked up at a garage sale and who knows when that garage sale was?! I have an amazing art stash! I covered the puzzle pieces with an image from a Collage Stuff collage sheet. I used stencils and acrylic paint to make the backgrounds. I finished off the ATC's with a brass charm and Tim Holtz small talk word. Thanks for coming by to view my "puzzling" ATC's!
The May swap at the Collage Stuff Yahoo Group is a rubber stamped tag swap, meaning to use at least one rubber stamped image in the art. I made my usual background on vintage text or sheet music using stencils and acrylic paint. I used a text stamp in the background as well. I used glitter bead gel through stencils as the final background layer, but it's hard to see in the photos. The stamped images are from Dylusions colored with glaze pens, metallic gelly roll pens and colored pencils. The stamped image are popped up. The little flowers are old chipboard buttons from Maya Road embellished with a white Signo pen. Thanks for coming by my blog today!
