door tag gift
A very simple but quite delightful wooden embellishment that I purchased and glued onto a tag for a special person's door. I used black and white paper for contrast and stamped a simple message. If you're looking for an easy project, then this is it. Of course, you can use your own focal points, but this turns out to be substantial because of the wooden cut-out.
color your world
This is a mixture of stencils, acrylic paints and stamps. Just sitting and playing with colors can allow your hand to soar without much imagination. This freedom often results in a blend of lovely colors and creates a pretty image to suit your mood for the day.
EMBELLISHMENTS READY FOR PROJECTS
If you feel that you want to do some art on any particular day, but have no idea what to do, try to make embellishments that you can use another time. Diecut and color some items, such as these leaves, so that your art day wont be wasted and in fact will help you think of ideas for another craft session.
mini accordion folders
My favorite creative pieces are making mini accordion folders with tiny pieces of paper that I compose into a book of color. This process video will show you how I create these little books.
This card was based on a textured substrate. I used die cuts of flowers and leaves and plenty of color and stenciled molding paste to create an interesting surface.
3 x 3 Lemons and Flowers
Starting with small pieces of art that I create, I then decide what I'll do with them. These I put together into an accordion folder to make up a little book of color and fun. The accordion can be seen on my instagram "lucicrafts"
Lynne perella face stamps
If you love color, the Lynne Perella stamps made by Paperartsy offer you the opportunity to use every kind of paint or marker . I used these to decorate little boxes which I show on my Instagram ‘lucicrafts’
Floral Delight card
This card was made using Stamperia paper folded into two to form the card. The design was made on another piece of Stamperia paper. The leaves were die cut from Altenew Leaves dies and colored with Copic markers. The flower tub was made using a Sizzix die. It was embossed within an embossing folder. In the background I have used an
Altenew metallic thread ( I saw this on YouTube created by one of the Altenew designers).
Zipper purse: painted & collaged
A blank purchased zipper purse was used. Painted with acrylic abstract designs and then collaged with diecut leaves from Altenew. Great for a gift for anyone.
Art by Marlene products will give your day color and happiness. All her products are so delightful and charming and if you have no ideas for the day, Art by Marlene elements will help you to build up a fun journal page. In this picture, I used collage paper and paper elements to create this colorful page. I used acrylic paint to add to the colors and texture. The background was made with gel medium paper pieces to create texture onto which I added the focal points.
