Don't Forget to Fly

Hello there all you crafty beauties!! I am here on the blog again to share with you some more fabulous creations I've made using the delicious deep red stamps by BPM! Magic is so inspiring, so you can understand why I've decided to sprinkle some magic on YOUR day! What's that fairy up to? Looks like she is making them come alive! Come along.. Let's fly together!


Products used:
CCB: Tattered Angels Glimmer Spray: Plum Jelly
Ranger Archival Ink Pad: Black
Finnabair - Art Daily Cafe: Word Sentiment

 I'm so excited to share these stamps with you today. Take a look at that beauty! These flowers are so magical.
Pam Bray is good at what she does isn't she? I can't say that there isn't a stamp in the shop of her design that I don't want! 
Just look at that fairy! Isn't she just beautiful?! Her wings are magnificent!!
Stamp your fairies and cut out the desired images you want to use for you ATC's. 
1. After cutting out your images, spray your background color. 
2. Then stamp each ATC randomly using the Pam Bray floral designs.
3. Next distress your edges using ink and your preferred blending tool.
4. Splatter your background with white paint.
5. While that dries, emboss your chipboard with white embossing powder.
6. Choose your sentiments, place them on white paper and distress the edges.
Here are some close-ups for you to see just how gorgeous these stamps can make any project!




I do hope you enjoyed this tutorial! Thanks for stopping by to see us today!

Faith Journaling Canvas

I have often marveled at the beautiful faith journaling pieces I have seen and have wanted to try to create a piece for my self. Since this month's challenge also called for a little masking, I decided to incorporate a masked heart.  
Instead of a Bible verse I choose the theme of a recent sermon. If  that isn't your thing, how about adding a quote from your favorite author? 

  

Blank Page Muse Supplies

Other Supplies
10x10 Canvas Board
Faber Castell India Ink Pitt Pen
Jute (twine)
Glaze
Archival Ink 
Glimmer Mists 
Scrap paper (for masking)


Start by cutting a heart from scrap paper and use it as a template to draw a heart onto the canvas.

With a pencil, write your bible or sermon quote inside of heart. Erase writing lines. 


Mask heart again for stamping. Begin stamping the BPM Correspondence Pens, Ink & Postage Art Rubber Stamp Sheet by Katy Leitch



This was my canvas after I finished Stamping.

Add Jute around heart border. 

Begin Misting Heart with Glimmer Mist.

Once Dry Add glaze over heart to see color.  This look a little sloppy as I used a water base glaze with the water based mists and the glaze started pulling the mist off a bit. 

Once the Glaze is dry. Mist the rest of canvas as desired to finish.   I included lots of photos so you can see the color depths.

Time Flies.....

Hello Again Fans!
Are you loving this months theme "Things with Wings"?
Soooooo many Blank Page Muse Stamps to create with for this theme - my tag art today uses three different stamps from the fab range at the Store!
 
You know I love to decorate tags so I hope you enjoy my mixed media double tag creation today!
Supplies List:
Blank Page Muse Stamp: Feathered Pair of Wings
Blank Page Muse Stamp: Birds on Wires Silhouette Border designed by Terri Sproul
Blank Page Muse Stamp: Feather Art designed by Pam Bray
Gelli Plate Printed Double Tags note: you can cut your own tags to size from your gelli prints if you don't have any!!
Embossing Ink Stamp Pad, Black Fine Embossing Powder and Embossing Powder in Complimentary Colour
Black Archival Ink Pad
White Tissue Paper
Kraft Paper
Collage "Characters" used here by Art Tea Life
Various embellishments: string, muslin cloth, cork style border strip etc.
Tools: heat gun, scissors, glue
 
 
Instructions:
Use pre printed tags or cut your own from gelli plate printed card. I always have some extra things on hand to grab and create with!

Use the Feather Art stamp with embossing ink and embossing powder to randomly add some more dimension to the printed background and add a little "sparkle"!


Use the Black Archival Ink to stamp the Birds on Wires onto white tissue paper. Tear out the stamped image.


Use Gel Medium to adhere the tissue paper stamps onto the tag background. Tearing the image allows it to "blend" into the background better than a straight cut edged piece of tissue. Be careful when adhering the tissue down as it can tear easily once wet. Allow to dry.


Whilst your tag background is drying stamp the wings and sentiment onto Kraft Paper using the clear embossing ink pad. Use fine black embossing powder and heat. Fussy cut the wings and tear the sentiment.


Gather your collage elements, stamped images and embellishments. Glue the embossed and fussy cut wings to your collage character. Soooo cute!!!!!

Arrange all of your elements onto the tag background and adhere everything with glue. To finish tie some string to the top of each of the double tag.
 

I always like to stamp extra images so I can make more than one tag at a time. I created another double tag with my extras:
 

Happy Stamping and have a great week!!!
Sharon :)
