Canvas - Fly Free

Hi everyone!

While cleaning files on my computer while I am waiting for my craft room to be re-built I came across this set of videos on an 8"x8" canvas I had done way back in June 2017. So I got to editing it and thought I'd upload it while we're all waiting for more videos from me.

Since all my craft stuff is packed away in boxes I do not have the names of the products I used on this canvas (some I remember) so please excuse my vague comments on screen LOL.

Hubs is currently making up a temporary work station for me while we wait on engineers and such, then I have to go through all my boxes to find a few things I could use to create pages. So hopefully in a week's time I may be able to have another video up!!! Can't wait!

Thanks so much for watching and stay tuned for more soon!

Update on where I've been since the New Year

Hi everyone!

As some of you may have noticed, I've been absent from YouTube, Facebook and most Social Media sites since the New Year. There is a very good reason for this LOL.

No, I haven't given up on my art and crafting, we sold our house, moved house, cleaned houses and currently organising tradesmen and suppliers trying to get the new house liveable!

I did let everyone in my Art Journal Techniques Facebook group know that I wouldn't be able to create any new videos on the tag/backgorund techniques for a while as we had no internet for a few weeks and my craft stuff is still packed in boxes :(

We are currently installing lighting and power to my new craft room, however we need to install a floating ceiling, gyprock two of the walls, put down carpet - all before hubs gets in there to build my shelves and benches *sigh*. It's going to be a long process, but I will be thankful for it all when it's finally finished!!!

We're thinking it's going to be about 4 to 6 weeks before that can get done, then I have to unpack all my products and stuff before I get down to 'playing'.

There are a few jobs around the house that are more urgent than my craft room, such as the concreting of the entertaining area, new roof on the entertaining area and 'fingers crossed' a pool to be installed!!!

Anyway, I hope you guys know that I haven't forgotten you and I haven't given up my craft and that I will be back!

Until then!

Art Journal Page 197

Hi everyone!

Well I finally finished this journal page! What a mission! I was determined to make this image transfer thing work and I think I've achieved it. This page was based on the Tag #6 Challenge - Image Transfer technique. You can check out the full process video on YouTube by CLICKING HERE.

I started out using the same stamp set and paint colours for this page as I used on the tag. I also used book text to transfer using gel medium, which worked out pretty good I think.

Then the crap hit the fan, so to speak LOL. I tried transferring printed images - fail!

I tried transferring a glossy magazine image - fail! Until I worked out how to get it to look ok.

Having Fun With Shipping Tags No.6

Happy New Year everyone!

Let's start the new year off with a nice quick easy technique! Today I thought I'd try my hand at an image transfer.

So, I started off creating a journal page first, using this technique, made mistakes and learned how to actually do the image transfer correctly LOL.

I wanted to use monochromatic colours so used some brown shades on this tag. Only because I wanted to transfer some old book paper using the image transfer. What I ended up doing with this tag was just to do the background, no other embellishments, so that I didn't have any ideas stuck in my head when I go to do a journal page based on this technique. I'm going to just do the backgrounds only for the tags from now on.
