Everything is possible - art journal page

Hi, crafty friends! I am back today with another art journal page. I used several TCW stencils with Archival inks and My Favorite Things one (cogs and gears) with my Liquitex Light modeling paste. A lot of spraying with my Distress stain sprays, Perfect pearl mists and glimmer mists has been used there. Cogs and gears are Xcut dies treated with some Galleria sand paste and several acrylics paints. The focal image is Paper whimsy digital image and I stamped two images (a hot air balloon and a sun) with black Archival ink on a manila cardstock. The wings are part of a butterfly (Tim Holtz's butterfly duo die) which has been sprayed with Distress stain sprays and Perfect pearl mists and distressed with Vintage photo DI. I used Idealogy small chit chat stickers for the quote.
Thank you for stopping by and leaving a sweet comment!

Face - art journal page

Hi, friends! Today, I would like to share with you my first attempt to draw a face :) I thought I can't draw and then I followed Dina Wakley's tutorials in her book and I realized that this was not so difficult as it seemed to be haha :) I have been inspired by Nika in Wonderland's art to create this art journal page. So here it is:

I used Dylusions paints, TCW stencils, Derwent Inktense blocks, watersoluble sketch pencil in black, Uni Posca white marker, Faber Castell black fine tip marker, Dyan Reaveley's stamp for a quote...I like how this page turned out since this is my first attempt ever in drawing faces (if I don't count drawing during my childhood). 
Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a sweet comment!

Memory - art journal page

Hi, crafty friends! I am back today to share with you my 'Memory' art journal page I've created for Linda Ledbetter's Compendium of Curiosities 3 challenge #30 . This challenge is about the Faux cracked glass technique (described in Tim Holtz's Compendium of Curiosities 3, page #54). The generous sponsor of this challenge is The Funkie Junkie Boutique. I've started with several DI for the background and some stamping and stenciling using several different Archival inks. The stencils I used are from TCW and Tim Holtz. Most of the stamps are from Tim Holtz and I used two of Paper Artsy's. I used the faux cracked glass technique on a piece of acetate from one of the Alterations packagings. I used some Deco Art Media products to achive the patina effect (Andy Skinner's technique) on Pocket watch die.

Hi, friends! I am here today to announce that our June challenge has started at Anything But Cute Mixed Media Challenge blog!
Our hostess Cec has chosen the theme 'Make It Masculine'.

For this challenge, Cec would like you to make a mixed media card or other project for a fellow in your life. It could be for Father's Day, a birthday, an anniversary or just because you want him to know how special he is.
