Paint with infusions on your own background

I have put my manila tag into two challenges PaperArtsy "Paint with infusions" and Simon Says Monday challenge "Make your own background".
Leandra has shown Infusions with grunge paste which inspired me to try Infusions mixed with Glazing liquid, the colors were permanently and I could easily work with Distress oxide and other media.




I have used:
PaperAtsy Infusions: Golden Sands, A Bit Jaded and BlackCurrant
Glazing Liquid from Golden
Spellbinders stamp Big woodgrain and Butterfly Duo from Sizzix
Archival ink jet black and Clear embossing powder
Distress Oxide, Gold Foil and flax string


I wish you all a creative day.
Hugs, Susan

Out and About on *Art*Journal*Journey* March

It is a good theme Yvonne - Meggysway have found, and here is what I see when I stand on my balcony.
 I had to try a method of covering with white acrylic color. First I started gluing pieces of paper on my page and then I painted with different colors, afterwards I drew some organic forms. The entire page was covered with transparent gesso for pastel color.
I also tried colored charcoal which worked really well.






Thanks for visiting my blog and I wish you a good crafty day.

Valentine - PaperArtsy Topic #2 Masks

The video from Stampin'Up "two minute technique" is a great way for a beginner and I use it often. Thanks to PaperArtsy for displaying different videos that I can learn from.

I stamped with gray ink, drawed the bird band where I should have my hearts to hang. After I had stamped on my masking tape, I cut out the motives and placed them. I distressed my tag and then used my stencil. The motives were colorized and the hearts got 3D pads and were put on.


I have used: Studio 490 stamp set scs140
Distress ink fra Ranger, broken china, twisted citron, wilted violet, tumbled glass and lucky clover
Archival ink watering can and carnation red
Tim Holtz thinlits shape strips and stencil mini set 21
12# tag watercolor and black paper and masking tape from tesa
Glitter pen, silk ribbon and water brush 


Jeg wish you a crafty and nice day.

Everything Art - Wanderlust 2017 course week #3

In course week #3 the theme is "Wilna's Art - three ways". The tutorial is by Wilna Furstenberg. Her flowers are very delicate and reminds me of porcelain we have here in Denmark. I have created several examples of these flowers and it was difficult, I was too cautious and made very small flowers which was almost impossible to color, so I went up in size, I ended up with this journal page. As you know, practice makes perfect.






Have a crafty and a nice day.
Hugs, Susan

Everything Art - Wanderlust 2017 Course week #2


This weeks theme in the Wanderlust course is "Making Magic" and I was very inspired by Mary Wancerin and her canvas here in week #2 of the course. I used my art journal, and this is my result. I used the techniques shown by Mary Wancerin and ended up with lots of layers of colour and different layers of scraps.
I tried out with lots of bright colours to really challenge my self and my comfort zone which usually is more darker colours.








Have a crafty day.
Hugs, Susan.
