Mothers Day Card - Masking

At the moment I am somewhere in Thailand, hopefully having a great time and enjoying the sun. But I have scheduled this post in advance so I can share this card with you. I have made this card using dies and stamps from Whiff of Joy as well as a stencil from Tim Holtz.

I did film a video for this card as well, but since I am not particularly pleased with how the card turned out I decided not to post the video. I will however upload more card videos and art pages once I get back from my vacation.

Mixed Media - Deerly Beloved 2 - Art Journal Page #11

Today I am sharing another painting and tutorial video and just like my last art video I am adding this one to my Art Journal Series even though it isn't technically an art journal page. But I don't really know where else to put it so this will have to do.

This image is also part of the "Deerly Beloved" series, and this is the second piece that I have completed. This painting wasn't actually planned, but I just wanted to try and use acrylic paints on the stencil so this is more of an experiment than a preplanned thing.

I also filmed a tutorial for this card that you can find on my YouTube channel or here below.

Make A Card Monday - Simple Birthday Card

Today I am sharing a new Make A Card Monday project with you using a few products from Whiff of Joy. The card today is as usual a very clean and simple card that is easy and fast to make.

To make this card I stamped the background on the edge of a white cardstock, then I also stamped my sentiment in the opposite corner using the same ink. To make the teal ink pop out more I matted the white cardstock on a black background and then adhered all of it to a white card base. Afterwards I realized that the white card base didn't really bring it all together the way I wanted, to I added the teal ink to the edge of the card base to tie it all together better.

Mixed Media - Deerly Beloved 1 - Art Journal Page #10

Today I am finally back with the first new video and art project after my long holiday. I started out pretty simple and didn't make anything too complicated today. The project I am sharing today is a bit different, but I choose to add it to my Art Journal section anyway. It's more of a painting that you hang on the wall than an actual page in my journal, but still.

This image is part of a series that I am calling "Deerly Beloved", and this is the first piece that I have completed.

After the painting was done and dry I placed it in a white frame from IKEA and will be hanging it on the wall together with another painting in the same style (will show how to make that one later too)

I also filmed a tutorial for this card that you can find on my YouTube channel or here below.

Birthday - Simple Window Card

Today I have a new card to share with you. I am preparing for a two week trip to Thailand at the moment and don't really have a lot of time to spare, so making a clean and simple card is always a good choice when you are short on time.

This time I used a stamp and a die from Whiff of Joy together with a small piece of scrap paper I had left over from all of my Christmas cards.
