Jester Bear by Helene

I used this amazingly cute Jester Bear on my latest card. Coloured with Ranger's Distress Inks in the colours: Tumbled Glass, Candied Apple, Antique Linen, Walnut Stain and Scattered Straw. There is a whole series of bears made by Rick and I adore them all. Just a simple dry embossed background, no more decorations needed.

Euro Girl Denise the Artiste - Crafting Vicky

Hi everyone!  Hope you are all doing fabulous.  Today I'm here to share with you a very messy little journaling out of the box using the fabulous Euro Girl Denise The Artiste.

I say journaling out of the box because I have been making little journaling cards to place into an old disquette box.  I still have to embellish the box but I think it's very fun to make those little tiny journaling cards.  I'm using an old kid's game to journal on!  So recycling at it's best!  Love when I can transform something.

Anyway I have made a little video of my process including my finger painting :)

And here's the little card for you to see.

The image was colored with my copics and then fussy cut out.  I used some die cuts as well as a bunch of different sentiments that I have cut out of magazines.

I had lots of fun making this as you can see in the video!

You can check out how this was made on my blog post here.

Hope you like my inspiration. Check out all the other fabulous images in the Zibbet store or in the Etsy store!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Vicky

Make Art with Denise the Artiste


Hi everyone. I had  a piece of this crazy background left over from a previous project and I wanted something artsy-related to be the focal. When I saw this Rick St. Dennis image called Euro Girl Denise the Artiste, I knew she would be the perfect choice. I decided to throw every bright colour at her and she how she turned out.


I coloured Denise with a mix of Polychromos and Prismacolor pencils. Her paint splotches were done with gel pens in Neon colours. Once finished, she was fussy cut leaving a narrow white border and then matted in black. Foam tape was added to the back of the image to adhere her to the background scrap and add a little dimension.


The background is 4.25 x 6 inches of mixed media paper which has been inked, stamped, and stencilled. The raised white harlequin pattern was done with embossing paste. The letters for ART and Make are stickers. The word art was shaded around with a Stabilo pencil and activated with a water brush. The same was done to the left side of the harlequin diamonds. Three little splotches were hand drawn and cut from sprayed scraps and layered to bring the paint splotches from the image to the background.


To complete the design, two lengths of washi tape were adhered to the background and threaded buttons were added. Doodling was used for a border and to outline various elements. White highlights were added to the letters in Art. Black Big Brush pen was used to ink around the edges and a black mat as well as a die cut scalloped edge were used to frame the piece.

Thanks for joining Denise and me today. We're so happy you did that.

Life is good; so is art.
Bonnie
