Patient by Denisa Gryczova

Welcome. It´s Denisa here with another art journaling episode. As time goes by I realize that I tend to be much more patient and calm than I used to be. No time to rush anywhere. Some things are simply worth waiting for. As you´ll see this time I went for something different. Not too much mixed media layers.



I was working with my fave resist canvas. The striped one is my star. To make the pattern more visible I just sprayed some Lindy´s on it. No gesso. That´s not my kind but I have to say it worked for me.



Another material that I used in a different way was the plastic packaging of 7DOTS stamps. Since I was creating on the resist canvas, stamping was not perfect and I wanted to achieve big contrast so I just cut out the stamped motifs on the foil and glued them down. Just as simple as that.



Here are some pics to illustrate my creative process.




Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the sweet summer time!

August challenge



You can create any type of project you wish - ATC, layout, card, canvas, off the page project, collage, art-journal spread and more.

Inspiration from our Design Team:


Hello everyone!
I was very inspired by the houses from our board and the palette. Already in the process, when I recorded for myself associations with a fairy-tale city, I thought about books and lights.
My page about the old city. It would be great to take a walk in this and live there!

Hiya!

What a great challenge mood board Tusia has created for us! I love the colours. They seem so magical and remind me of a Utopia… and led me to think of a paradise centred on the theme of this board.



I love creating on tags, sometimes it is good to mix it up with a different size substrates. I started with a layer of white gesso and stamped into this to create some texture.



Izinks are great fun to use and incredibly pigmented! A perfect base to build up lots of layers!











I have created a video of my process, hope you enjoy!

This time I was blown away by the gorgeous colour palette. Especially the smoky blues took my breath away. I made a tiny notebook in rather industrial look.



I used an old rusty metal element as the main embellishment. To soften it a bit I glued on some fabric motifs.







The crucial role played various minimalistic stamps that I stamped on using grey and turquoise ink. I love the way it turned out at the end.

Today I prepared for you a step by step tutorial! The base is wooden, but you can use any material you want !!! Below you can see, how it all began.



The main object is an old camera. I imitated an old bulb! Everything on a coloured background !!






Here is finished project:







I like the final effect!! You can see that I have used lots of hardware available in the shop !!!

In this project I have been inspired by the photo of the city, those blue colors.... as for the phrase I have thought of a butterfly and its transformation.
I have used a stencil to create the background and on it - I have splashed different shades of blue until I get the desired background! I have embossed a stamp and I have used another stencil to paint on it and finish creating the background. Then I have created the base of the photo with embellishments and voila!

Hello, Cindy here. For this month challenge I have created 2 cards.


I love pastel colours! And 7 Dots Studio has beautiful papers from the Dreamscapes collection, that I am still in love. 
So this month I played with pastel colore, 7 Dots Studio Dreamscapes papers and chipboard pieces, and flowers. Check out a little video to see how I did it.
