Glue a couple pages together for extra strength also helps when you  apply the gesso, OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMake sure the Gesso is dry before doing your next set of pages.you can leave a couple pages without Gesso and glue water color paper or other types of paper for you art journal, what ever you want to do, as long as you have fun doing it.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAyou could even add photo paper and use those Inks you ve been wanting to try. LOL….

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA I trimmed the extra paper from the sides. and made it all look even.  Then I tore some green paper and glued to USED DRYER SHEET.  Next I Painted the sky blue, and watered down the paint.Dabbed it with paper towel to give it lighter puffy cloud look. made some knot stitch flowers of yellow and some of blue.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAnext I added Shimmer to grass blades, with watered down Pearl Ex powder.next I sewed the glass green beads on , for a flowery look.And the Yellow flowers got a golden stem of gold thread..

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThen I added my tree which is made from Sisal Twine,I untwisted it and pulled apart and finger painted it with black and Brown Acrylic paints. also made a nest also with Twine used more paint and added yellow for a slight tinge of color change on the nest. cut and glued branches in place. and tree. added a 3d puff behind the bird. {The Bird was a gift from a swap came with a bunch of die cuts from CANDY LOWEKE..

haunted house with spirits

I just couldn’t wait for my new Cricut cartridge so I started my card with out it.  I made my house by drawing over and over again and trying to size it just right.   I use bright Brilliance   inks for the back ground added by using a sponge. and dabbing , then I stippeled and added black ink . To blend the colors I used a baby wipe, works great….  rubbing slightly so it doesn’t tear or mark your paper .  Boo was made by Cricut {Plaintin school book cartridge} Added a personal touch by adding my grandchildren’s photos in the windows.

 I made the black button with polymer clay , easy tip for making these spray mist a water bottle cap with water, then push into clay . round a little ball and stick it to the clay in the cap pull up and it should come up easy… bake to clay package directions.
