Today I'm showing you an experiment I did with transfer on fabric. My plan is to use this as a journal cover after I paint it.
This is an old napkin
I covered it with gesso
Here I transfered the image with soft gel
I wanted to blend the image with the background so I used a stencil with molding paste
I have a new VIDEO showing how I did these cute little books. I used gelli printed papers for them because you'll need a thin paper in order to be able to fold them and make them fit into each other.
I've been invited to participate in a Youtubers group called Creative Arts Collaboration. They have a theme for each month where hundreds of artists make videos under a "Hashtag". For September they chose #LoveFallArt and here is my video.
This is part of my wooden houses series where I show how I do the foundation of them. I hope you get some inspiration!!
This is the last house I have done. First steps can be found HERE. I'm recording a video so you can watch the whole process on a new house.
After painting it I covered the front with this Tim Holtz tissue
I started to decorate the house using Prima wood doors again, resin elements painted with Inka Viva Gold, a wax seal and some metal accents. I also used a clay embellishment I did a while ago (on the top of the door)
For the final step I just added the metal number with brads
Today is the turn of house number five's tutorial. First steps can be found HERE.
For this house I used a stencil with molding paste to give it more of a building look. I also used a charcoal pencil to paint over some "windows" just a tiny bit
I've had these Prima doors for ages and never knew where to use them. I decided to place only one as the main door
As you may have noticed, I love metal embellishments, so I added a few here
Finished house with the quote
I covered all sides with blue tape and applied three coats of gesso before I started gluing the elements
Starting to cover everything with gesso
Today I'll show you my house number four. First two steps can be found HERE.
I embellished the whole house at once, using two Asian coins, the metal quote and the wooden frame
I added Viva Inka Gold to give the metal and wood a little shimmer
I've been published on Somerset Studio's September/October issue, couldn't be happier!!
This ATB, has a VIDEO tutorial I shared a while ago so here it is and just in case you want to check it out.
Time for another house tutorial, I kept this one very simple. Remember to follow the first two steps showed HERE.
Covered with gesso and painted
I decided to stamp here and there with black archival ink and make a border with a black marker for additional texture
I wanted to use wings for this house and the quote is on the metal charm. Thought this mother pearl button was a good addition too.
I finally added an embellishment I've got from a champagne bottle
