Life Lessons – ATC Accordion Folder

Today I’d like to share my most recent project for LuLu Art – an ATC Accordion Folder.  This was such a sweet project to make and a bit different for me as I usually use stamped images – the ATC’s in this one use collage sheets.  Available from LuLu Art of course!

If you would like to see full details – hop over to the LuLu Art blog to find my project here.  You can also watch the YouTube video I made showing details.

While you are there – check out the Design Team call!  I have had a ball of fun designing for Lisa the past 6 months so give it a go.

Let the Sky Fall

Whenever I sit down to create some Gelli prints, I always have an art journal out to mop up the excess paint on my plate. The prints from these ‘leftovers’ add instant texture to any background and provide the perfect starting point for a project.

Today I’d like to share an art journal page featuring some Darkroom Door stamps – Carved Birds Vol 1, Alphabet Medley & Chicken Wire.

The page features many layers of paint and ink. The birds were doodled on with gel pens & a white Sharpie paint pen to make them stand out from the background a little more.

You might not have noticed but aside from using the Alphabet Medley set for my journaling, I also used the smaller set as a background stamp.  I haven’t cut each of the letters apart yet – I think I might leave each of the alphabets intact so I can use them this way more often!

I have the habit of taking lots of step by step pics so decided to create a slideshow of the process.

Today I’m sharing a sneak for a card that I created for the Lime Tart blog which incorporates the use of washi tape. If you are like me, you will have a sizeable stash of this gorgeous tape and this card quickly creates cards with a lovely pop of colour.

You can check out my card here.
