Butterfly Art Journal Page

April 27, 2021

Hi there,

It’s Tanja here and today I would like to show you how to create this Butterfly Art Journal Page:

Step 1: Creating the Background

  • apply Embossing Paste through the Waves stencil on a piece of watercolor paper and let this layer dry thoroughly
  • add color using pinks from the Watercolor Palette
  • ink up the edges with Distress Ink Black Soot and add some splatters with watered-down black acrylic ink

Step 2: Creating the Butterfly

  • roll a piece of purple tissue paper for the butterfly’s body
  • add little antennas – I used ready-made stamen that you would normally use for flower centers
  • cut out two wings from vellum using a die from the Butterfly Pocket Insert set
  • color the vellum with a light teal Alcohol Marker
  • assemble the butterfly using hot glue
  • add a pre-made sentiment

I hope you got inspired.

Hugs,

Peace, Love, Joy Mixed Media Tag

December 22, 2020

Hi there,

It’s Tanja here and today I would like to show you how to create this Mixed Media Christmas Tag.

Step 1: Die Cutting

  • die cut the smaller tag from the Planner Essentials 26 from kraft cardstock

Step 2: Adding Texture to the Background

  • adhere tissue paper to the tag using matte medium
  • apply crackle paste at random spots
  • add some Distress Stain Tarnished Brass for extra shine

Step 3: Stamping

  • stamp the branches from the Spring Fling set with Versafine Clair Fallen Leaves and heat-emboss them with WOW! Clear Matt Dull embossing powder
  • ink up the edges of the tag with Distress Oxide Ink Ground Espresso

Step 4: Finishing Touches

  • dye a piece of torn seam binding with Distress Oxide Ink Ground Espresso
  • stamp the sentiment from the Classic Christmas Sentiments with that same brown ink onto a strip of kraft cardstock
  • add some splatters with watered-down white acrylic paint

I hope you got inspired.

Hugs,
