A mornings play at The Artistic Stamper

Hi everyone I hope you are well Thank you for popping by, I would like to say a warm welcome to my new followers as well.
I popped down to see Jennie @ The Artistic Stamper and she had a journal class on 
so would be rude not to join in. As journaling is really new to me I
decided to choose new colour choices (for me).
I got to try the Dylusions paints I must say I hadn't tried them before its very interesting to see the different properties each paint delivers I did like the finish these paints give to the page.
For this page I used the delusions sprays which are translucent and as it was sprayed on craft paper most probably lost a lot of the vibrancy of the inks. That's it for today folk's quite enjoyed stepping out of the box and for Jennie no butterflies or dragonfly's.

SanDee&amelie's Steampunk Challenges

Hi Everyone I hope you are well and have had a good start to the year.
All the DT team over at Sandee & amelie's steam punk Challenges
are spot lighting their use of Deco art products this month all of you 
that know my blog will know that I use these products all the 
time in my work. so its very hard to pick just one as they are all
amazing and this project uses quite a few.
Deco Art is our new sponsor over at SanDee & amelie's Steampunk Challenges.
I have used Tando creative media boards, clocks, & Chip board 
I used Tim Holts texture fades & embossing folders  I covered card 
with aluminium foil tape and put it through my machine.
Next I painted with raw umber and used the
  Antiquing creams to age the badge.
This photo shows the cogs which were covered in texture sand then painted 
with Raw umber then quinacridone gold. Treasure gold just to 
highlight the texture.
I used Tando Creative mixed media board for the centre piece which I then decorated 
as follows. 
Crackle paste put through a cogs stencil then painted with Raw umber once 
dry. Next a coat of english red oxide was used which you need to apply
in watery washes. a light cost of crackle paint again the media line was 
painted around the crackle paste cogs.

Cog's are treated as above the larger ones have got actual rust 
powder on them the edges were just touched with 
Prussian Blue hue.
A clock Stamp from my stash was coloured the given a coat of crackle
 glaze to appear like the watch face has cracked.
Various pieces from my stash and stamps were used to decorate 
it. The final clock was treated the same way as the cogs 
and all highlighted with guiding wax
So today's tip is crackle paste is a lot thicker that the paint but to use lots 
of washes to create with the media line. These really are amazing products 
and offer an extensive range to create whatever effects you crave.
Why not pop over to the Challenge blog by clicking the link below and 
joining in with us  for a chance of winning these fabulous products.
That's it for today folks thank you for dropping by.
