Beautiful from the inside out

I haven't had much opportunity to get my papers and paints out over the Christmas period, so for the next few days I will be posting more digital pieces.

A digital scrapbook page

This was the first Christmas without my Nan, and so I created this page of her with her parents and siblings in her honour.

Advent journal

We are currently in Advent. For a while, I have been wondering what to do with the backgrounds I created using my Gelli Plate. Then I had the idea of making an Advent Journal. It's quite a grungy journal, using lots of bits and pieces that I had stashed away, but marking the period of waiting before Christmas day and the birth of Jesus.

Over the next 10 days I will post one page each day. I hope you like them.

Two hearts

I created the background for this piece with my Gelli Plate. I then added some bits of old printed paper, some stamping, some wasi tape and highlighted the hearts with charcoal. As the last stage I added some swirls of dimensional paint. Done!

Laugh out loud

I wanted to create a cheerful digital piece and ended up using element from lots of different kits. That is why the credits for this piece are so long. Lol!

Christmas tags

Well, I haven't managed to make many Christmas cards, but I have made some tags.

Diptych

To start I covered the wood with gesso, followed by acrylic paint.I then applied more paint through stencils,  moving the stencil slightly for the second layer. For the back, I then stamped over the stencil pattern. On the front I added the embellishments.

Paris wall plaque

I started this piece by collaging pieces of old book pages onto the wood. I then added tissue paper with French words and scenes. Once dry I added some orange and blue acrylic paint through stencils. The top layer was a faux bees wax I made from various acrylic mediums. After this had dried I attached the metal embellishments.

Dream - a journal page

The focal image on this page is a transfer on sticky-back canvas. The background was created using various stencils and spray inks. You may spot some stamping underneath all the layers. Not liking to waste anything, having used stamps on other pages I stamped the excess ink onto this page to start it off!

Waiting wasn't easy

All the elements for this digital piece come from various kits by Tangie Baxter at Scrapbook Graphics.

Who, me?

I printed one layer of paint using my Gelli Plate and then did another adding the two silhouettes. I then sprayed the page and edged the figures with a white paint pen and then charcoal. I added some faint stamping in the background and the script.

Faux watercolour faces

To create these faces I took one of my Lynne Perrella stamps (by Paper Artsy), coloured it with two or three Distress Stains, spritzed it with water and then gently pressed a piece of scalloped card on top of it. The results varied as to how much, or how little, water I used.

Happiness

The background of this page was created with my Gelli Plate. I then added the little folder, tape and stamping.


Inside the folder.

You too!

This journal page started off with printing excess strips of paint from my Gelli Plate onto it. I then filled some of the gaps with various bits of washi tape. Then I added the tabs and other embellishments as focal points.


This is the view with the tabs open.

Life

This page was created at the same time, and in the same way, as the one I posted yesterday. I used one of my favourite quotes.

I'm not quite sure why the pink elephant ended up there, but it seemed fun!!

Imagination

This was a very simple journal page to create. I sprayed it with various colours of Dylusions Inks, added the tape and houses and tree, and then stamped the bird and quote.
