Art journal for Pink and Main


yes you read name of article right, this blog post is about my art journal and it is for Pink and Main. It is very unusual to make art journal in mixed media style with stamps for card makers. But it is great fun! For my art journal I used Awesome family stamp set. It is really easy art journal and you can try it too.

  1. Apply over your paper white gesso – to prepare paper for all another layers. After each step use heat tool to speed up drying.
  2. With permanent ink (Archival, StazOn) stamp three main words and border with other words from stamp set.
  3. Use some of your favourite stencil and apply over stamped small words structure paste (any kind which you have at home)
  4. If you have crackle paste, apply it around main words.
  5. Take some of your favourite colours acrylic or watercolour and paint your page  as you like.
  6. With white and with black colour make small splatters – use small brush for it.
  7. Final step is to add details with black permanent marker – I made crosses and some faux stitching.

I used: Finnabair Heavy Gesso, Finnabair Modeling Paste, Stamperia Crackle paste, iZink acrylic colours, black Archival ink, Derwent Graphik black acrylic pen.

Tutorial – layout You and me

Hi, I would like to share with you my video tutorial for romantic layout. On photo is my hubby and our puppy Dobby (when he was 3 months old). That relaxing position in front of TV was Dobby’s favourite. I used background die from the newest Frantic Stamper release. That release is mainly for masculine projects but I love to challenge myself and create projects differently.

Papers and collectables are Kaisercraft PS I love you collection. Colours are made with Color Philosophy inks.



Make it Prima – April challenge


this layout was made for Make it Prima challenge. I used Rose quartz papers, flowers, ephemera and stickers. On photo is our puppy Dobby. I have tons of super cute photos of him :-) For colouring I used Color philosophy inks for details I used Finnabair waxes. For details I die cut different shapes with Frantic Stamper dies.
