Create Art by Amanda Southern


Hi Everyone


I don’t make New Year resolutions but I did decide to make a conscious effort to do more art journaling, I think that decision is driven by the many plastic boxes under the spare bed that are full of cards that I have made over the years. 







That’s Crafty! recently launched, on Hochanda, a new range of word stencils and sets of clear quote stamps. Due to illness and work commitments I sadly wasn’t part of the Hochanda launch but have managed to have a play with some of them in my art journal.


 

Here’s What I Did:-


I am playing in my Dylusions black art journal and these pages already had a rough layer of pink and gold paint on them as I had used them to clean my brayer off on from a previous project. 

With the gold paint already being down I ended up making quite an opulent double spread. I then stencilled more gold paint through using a Dinky stencil. I added some black stamping using a fine grid roller stamp that I found in a drawer having a sort out! 

I then stamped and heat embossed, in gold, Tracy Scott's beautiful feather stamp. I have then coloured it using paint, I love the richness of the blue. I then stencilled the word Create and Art using paint. I went around the words with a black pen and drew in a little drop shadow on the word Art. I then added the quote, one from the new stamp set, again heat embossing it in gold.

I added some dot stencilling and marks using an old credit card and a spray can lid. Final touch was to flick red paint across the pages.


Here’s What I Used:-


Dylusions Black Art Journal
Dylusions Paints - Post Box Red & Funky Fushia
Heat Gun
Mark Making Items – Credit Card, Spray Can Lid


Thanks and I will see you all next week

Love
Amanda X
