May Mission Inspiration

Its May and over on the Facebook Group mission Inspiration there was a new challenge. The Challenge is to do the list of the 10 things listed. To watch me make this page go to my youtube channel and watch it next week!

Here is my finished page.

The journal I'm using is something I made using mailers from a casino here in Vegas. They're 8 page booklets. I thought they would make a cool journal, so I glued 4 of them together.

Step 1 was adding gesso. I use d DecoArt Media Black Gesso

Step 2: use 3 gelatos or water soulable pigments. I used  passion fruit, iced coffee and metallic icing gelatos from Faber Castel
tep 3 blow paint with a straw. I used Daler Rowney FW acrylic ink Process Magenta on the top and DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics in Interference magenta. The Interference magenta really didn't spread well so I had to spritz some water the blew through the straw. 

This is when it was starting to be a hot mess.

Step 4 Use a stencil with a medium of choice. I used a stencil from Plaid with Moss Pearl Dazzling Metallic by DecoArt. It was getting better

Step 5 Add texture with molding paste. I used a stencil that I cut from my Cameo with DecoArt Media Black Molding paste 

Step 6 Add a collage element. I used an ad from a magazine. 

Page got a lot better, and no longer a hot mess

Step 7 play with pen or pencil. I used the white Stabilo all pencil

step 8 add a border. I used coconut gelato ( should f waited a little bit more for the molding paste to dry. but it worked out. lol) around the pages
tep 9 use verbage. i used a sticker from Cosmo Cricket Art Tiny text 

and Step 10 Use Stickles or glitter glue. I used Distress Stickles in Rock candy for her skin and Distress Stickles in spun sugar for her dress. Also added some Stickles to the top and bottom of the verbage.

ATC backgrounds

If you are a subscriber of my youtube channel (if your not you should be. :D) You know I've been making ATC backgrounds for a swap next year. Yes I know a year away. but I'm doing it for an event here in Vegas, Pita Fest. And during the fest there will be some swaps going on, ATC's, tags and photo mats & inserts (one of Kathy King of paper phenomenon's creations) I'm participating in the tags and ATC swap.I don't know how many are doing the swaps, but I'm making a bunch.

Like all the other backgrounds I did, I start with stuff we get in the mail from Casinos here in vegas. On one side I glued napkins, the other side, book paper. then I gesso both sides. From there I use different colors of craft paints. and stencils. In this batch of the video I did, I used DecoArt craft paints. Also used Various stencils. The video of me doing these will be out June 11. :)

Citron Green
Bahama Blue
