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.

Life’s a Beach

July 14, 2020

Hi there,

it’s Tanja here and today I would like to show you how to create this summer tag/bookmark with the small image stamps from several sentiment sets:

Step 1: Die Cutting and Background Stamping

  • die cut a tag from smooth white cardstock and if you like another tag from patterned paper that you can use in the back using the smaller tag die from the Planner Essentials 26 set
  • stamp the little heart from the Bear Hugs Sentiments, the shells and the starfish from the Splish Splash Sentiments and the sun and sunglasses from the Beach Sentiments set with Versafine Clair Morning Mist to create a background pattern on your tag

Step 2: Sentiment and little Accent

  • stamp the palm trees from the Beach Sentiments Set wit Versafine Clair Morning Mist
  • stamp the sentiment from the same set with Versafine Clair Nocturne onto a piece of torn vellum and heat-emboss it with clear embossing powder
  • wrap the vellum around the tag and secure it with washi tape and the patterned paper packing you die cut earlier

Step 3: Finishing Touches

  • color the image with Derwent Artists pencils and adhere it above the sentiment strip
  • thread three strands of twine through the hole of the tag

I hope you got inspired.
