March challenge

Feel free to be inspired by theme, shape, pattern, color, quote or anything you will find above, and join our challenge :)

Inspiration from our Design Team:

Hello dears!

I'm in love with this mood board! The colors, the quote, the mood of freedom…

I decided to create a small motivation canvas and focus on the quote. So, I found this optimistic sentiment in my stamps and stamped it on the journaling card by Prima. I cut the frame from plain chipboard and covered it with a white heavy body gesso. 

The background texture I created with a lot of Art Stones, Soft matte gel, Black gesso, Art Alchemy metallique paints and Lindy's mists. The flat flowers are white embossing + watercolors. To create these native style feathers, I covered them with a layer of soft matte gel and painted with white marker.

I love art-journaling - little by little I fill my big art-journal with new pages. For that spread I have used Ecoline Pens, Acrylic Paints and also Letraset Aquamarkers and Big Brush Pens from Faber-Castell. 

I started with priming blank pages with clear gesso. Than, using a pencil, I sketched a bear and its owner and also stars, that were shining for them.

I have added some stamping and handwriting. In my art-journal pages you will always find deeper meaning and my own emotions.

I created a page in my Art Journal of pregnancy !! I was inspired by colors, and by chevrons which we find on feathers!

I used black gesso and some Art Alchemy acrylic paints!!!

I decided to interpret the challenge in a form of layout. Here is my creation. Remember to look down for video

Today I really enjoyed the rainbow of colours.

First I used paints with texture powder, I love these products to make pastes and use with stencils.

Then I used 7 Dots Studio papers and their tags at the back of my photo.

I love adding fabrics to make the dimension and texture below my picture.

Finally I add color with my droplets.

Enjoy the video:

Hi folks here is my piece for this month’s challenge. Love the colours from this board, seems magical and dreamy. I used lots of art stones and cheese cloth for texture, but one of the best bits is the crackle - Art Basics White Crackle is just super awesome!! I used Lindy’s Sprays for this and 7 Dots Elements.

The substrate is an empty Prima Wood Icons box - perfect!! Here are some close ups of the yummy textures:

Happy crafting
