Surprising Journey (Picture tutorial)

Hello friends! Hope you are having a fantastic day! Today, I am sharing with you a tutorial I made for eclectic Paperie, I used Twinkling H2O paints, but you can use any kind of paints you own.

Let's get started!

I started with a piece of Strathmore Mixed Media paper, cut the paper 9" x 9", then taped it to my mat with Blue Tape (painter's tape), the sides are 1" and the top/bottom are .75"

 
 Added a couple of coats of White Acrylic Gesso
 
 
 Then I started painted this piece with Luminarte Twinkling H2O African Jade, just one coat is enough.
 
 
 
 Then I added paint strokes of Luminarte Twinkling H2O Rich Cobalt
 
 
 
 
 
 
and finally some of Twinkling H2O Olive Vine. 
 
 
I added some Embossing paste using the Mini Chicken Wire reversed Stencil, but honestly I didn't like it, I removed it immediately with a baby wipe, but it left a really cool impression, ha! The things you discover from your mistakes. Then added few dabs using Snow Cap Acrylic Paint Dabber
 
 
 
 I used an old stencil (no longer available, sorry) and White embossing paste in random places.

 
 
Then added White Gelatos in the center and a little bit around the edges,
 
 
Added Black Gelatos around the edges of the whole piece.
 
 
 
Then I took my Remant Rubs - Word (Tim Holtz), cut few pieces and added them on my piece.
 
 
Looks like this :) 
 
 
 
And this is the final piece, without the blue tape, the picture doesn't show how shimmery this piece is, it's really beautiful!! I think I will put it in a picture frame to decorate my craft room :)
  



I hope you like it!!
Have a wonderful day.

XOXOXO Handbag

Hello friends!! Hope you are having a great day, whether you celebrate Valentine's Day or not, hope your day is a good one.

Today, I want to show you a quick and simple way to embellish your Z Becky Brown handbag. I used Ziva Sundance Kraft inserts, cut out Patterned Paper panels from Craft n Craftin' "Sweet Love", traced the panel onto the patterned paper then cut .5" from each side, cut a strip of the same paper but opposite side XOXOXO, matted them with a bigger piece of Kraft Cardstock, added Adhesive White lace. I painted wings and a heart with Metallic paint and added them to the center. I die-cut cute double hearts and arrows and added them to the sides. The final touch was adding lines around the edges with a White pen.



 
 
Hope you like it!
Have a fantastic day.
