This month for my Scrapbookingncraft May 2021 Project Melinda sent some chipboard windows to play around with. Watch the video for a 15% off discount code. I made some cards again. The plan was to make a second project but my daughter needed some help during her pregnancy so I didn’t get there.
I did manage to get a prototype made and a second card filmed though. The first was created using Worn Lipstick for the background papers. For the Damask chair from Stampendous I covered it in Frosted Crystal embossing powder from ranger. It didn’t turn out how I hoped. Not enough definition! The cat and dog I had precoloured from lawn fawn. The background brick paper is from The Craft Stall\Rosie’s Studio Flourish paper pad.
On the second card I used Tumbled Glass Oxide but I felt I should have used a darker ink like Broken China instead so that there was more contrast. The background stamp used on both cards is Floral Wall Paper from Kaisercraft. Both use flowers and vines from Art Impressions Birdhouse Cubbies set and the paper is from Prima Fairy Rhymes.
I coloured the cat and dog with Copics and the sentiment is from Hero Arts Operation Write Home. If you’d like to see my previous Scrapbookingncraft project go here and to get the windows here. I hope you enjoyed my Scrapbookingncraft May 2021 Project this month. Let me know below whether you prefer the pink or blue. Hope you are creating some arty crafty alchemy yourself! See you next time.
Today I am sharing with you the August 2018 Scrawlrbox. This is my first Scrawlrbox Challenge! Wow I made it out the other side lol… Scrawlrbox is a nice affordable subscription box based in the UK that ships worldwide.
I decided to paint a stained glass window with a cross turning into a sword for this months False Prayer challenge. I added three gems to represent the Holy Trinity (forgot to mention that in the video).
The waterbrush was a total nightmare to work with. Mine either was dry as a bone or released way too much water, there was no middle ground. Wasn’t fussed on the botanical paper included in the box for use with the Inktense paint palette either. I think I will try it out with some regular watercolours and see how it works. My pencil feathered a lot where it was applied heaily though I didn’t get this problem in my sketchbook…
Overall I really liked the new Inktense palette and the addition of seven new colours to the range. Hopefully they bring them out in pencil and block form. I already own the complete set of pencils and a small tin of blocks so am familiar with the medium. Next time I use them though I will be using a proper brush!
The Faber-Castell Graphite Aquarelle was a nice pencil to work with, just not on the included Botanical 50% cotton paper. All in all as someone who cannot draw very well I think I did ok for the August 2018 Scrawlrbox challenge. The next ones a doozy… lol Hope you are creating your own arty crafty alchemy, see you all next time.
