Guess who is Guest Designer for Stamps by Julia Spiri ?????? ME !

Happy New Year
and welcome to 2017
Its time to Create and inspire each other
In November I won A Guest designer spot with Stamps by Julia Spiri
with this digi image I created a 3D A4 journal page with
all info about it
For my guest designer spot I have created another A4 journal page by merging 2 of Julia's images into one.

I used photoshop to turn the images into a PNG no background images and merged the 2 together in MS Word to make 1 picture.
 I printed the image in A4 and coloured it with copic's and polycromas pencils. Then added to my journal and finished the page with lots of thoughts and my new years resolutions.

I hope I have inspired you to try something new with your digi's and mix them up and create a whole new scene and image.

I Created with Image
I took this image and coloured her with my copic's in A4 size,
and added her to my mixed media journal.
the background was coloured with layers of Dylusions paints and white gesso I then layered her on and white bubbles drawn on with white posca pen.
on the other page in my A4 Dylusions journal I made shrink sheet images with my PEACE LOVE HARMONY digi by Mystitchbackintwine Digi's
which is a freebie for you to grab this month

Video HERE showing the process I take to make shrinky images large enough for large scale projects
but remember when doing words to print it backwards so when you flip to right side it looks right.

Challenge time again - sponsored by Julia Spiri

Challenge Time Again...
Thanku for all the amazing entries for last months challenge.
Your creations are amazing, I love seeing them all.
Make sure to check out the winners on this months new challenge post
Our amazing sponsor for this month is
 Julia Spiri
My Image I'm creating with ths month is The beautiful
As always I have created with her in my style and done her as a A3 mixed media journal page layout.
step 1 - printed on A3 canvas paper

step 2 - coated with white gesso and used a music sheet back ground stamp with black archival ink
 to give page some texture and life

Step 3 - added another light coat of white gesso

step 4 - added some colour with my caran water soluble crayons
and blended with a baby wipe
step 5 - using my brayer I added some more white gesso just to dull done colours and give it a more blended look.
step 6 - I now added colour to my image using,
water soluble crayons, water colour pencils, acrylic paint, and faber castell pencils..
 many many layers adding colour till I was happy with the final look.

I hope I have inspired you to pop by Julia's store and grab some wonderful images and create some beautiful art, cards, journal page.. what ever your imagination can come up with.

 The final piece was cut out and with gel medium I added it to my journal and then created lots of 3d embellishments by doubling up the layers of the orchids and the bird... I also added Nuvo glossy accents to her clothing. and finished off with some white splashes and some highlights.

 Please leave me a comment below and follow my blog to keep up to date with all my projects and creative ideas.
