Layers of ink - Bright Squares Background Tutorial by Anna-Karin Evaldsson. Made with stamps by Simon Says Stamp.

Bright Squares Background

Hello crafters! I hope your weekend was nice. We had really good and sunny weather and went looking for blue and white anemone flowers. Blue anemone flowers are protected here and when I was a child, I hardly ever saw one. They are easier to find now, especially if you know where to look. This week we have a Bright and and Cheerful Colors theme at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog. I hope you will join us and don't miss the stunning project by our April guest designer Autumn Clark…

Spring Canvas Mixed Media Tutorial

Hello friends! I have a spring canvas to share with you today, with fun and easy mixed media and stamping techniques. You can use the techniques for cardmaking and art journaling too. It is still a little chilly here, but spring is definitely on the way. One of my favorite things with spring is all the shades of green that you will find where ever you look and that is what inspired this 7 x 9.5 in canvas. I wanted to create green hills with a sprinkle of leafy trees. I used Simon Says Stamp…

Shimmering Butterfly Tag

Hello friends! Today I have a tutorial for you with a wax paper resist technique as well as some other fun details. I was in the mood for a warm yellow-brown project, but you can of course do the techniques with any color. I used the Simon Says Stamp Boho Circle die together with wax paper to get the resist effect in the background. It is pretty subtle and if you want more contrast, work on a lighter background instead. I also used gold foil and Modeling Film on the tag. Ink a tag with…

Watercolor Flowers on Book Paper

Hello friends! I hope you are well! The cold continues here and I was in the mood for some spring flowers. Have you ever tried to watercolor directly on old book paper? It is a lot of fun. I made three tags for this tutorial, but the technique works great for cardmaking or art journaling too. You can also color and then cut out the images, so the entire background doesn't have to be a book page. I like to give old books a new life by using them in my art. Many secondhand shops get so many…

Mixed Media Winter Scene Tutorial

Hi crafters! The snow is falling outside my window and I was in the mood for a snowy winter scene. Creating snow with different techniques is one of my favorite things to do. I made a little 4x6 in canvas board using various media: crackle paste, texture paste, Grit-Paste, glitter and Glossy Accents. The images comes from the Snowy Town stamp set by Hero Arts. Start by coating a canvas or canvas board with a layer of gesso. I used a Dina Wakley Media Board, size 4x6 in. Apply Crackle Texture…
