1. First, I added Chalkboard Paint to the top and bottom portion of one of the tags from the Graphic 45 Tag Album.

2. Then, I mix 1 part Chalkboard Paint to 2 Parts Glaze blending with water until smoothie like consistency.

3. Adhere the Rare Oddities Patterned Papers on top of each other with Gel Medium.

4. Before completely dry, tear portions of the top layer of paper to reveal the bottom layer.

5. Add Drips of Chalkboard Paint mixture with a dropper tool.

6. The next step is easy, simply adhere die-cut apothecary bottles with Gel Medium.

7. Adhere the Graphic 45 Rare Oddities Chipboard to the bottles with Gel Medium & trim excess. 

8. Add a thick coat of Gel Medium around the Chipboard labels.

9. Now, this is when the magic happens. Heat Set the Gel Medium until it BUBBLES!!!! Yes, you WANT air bubbles! I loved discovering this happy mistake :)

10. Outline the bottles with a PITT Artist Pen Black (M).

11. Now, be brave and add some sort of handwritten sentiment on the tag with the Stamper's Artist Pen in White. I layered my sentiment with a Metallic PITT Artist Pen Gold. Now, you just have to adhere the finished Apothecary bottles to the finished tag!

So what do you think?! I cannot wait to add this finished tag to a bottle of wine for a host gift!

Thanks for hopping by,

Art Journaling Week 2 with Lisa and blog hop with Stampendous

Art Journaling Banner 2

Hi everyone! Lisa with you today. We started our Art Journal Journey's last Monday and here we are for the second week and it's a BONUS that we are also blog hopping with Stampendous! Yay!

LisaAdametz-ArtJournal-Week2-1

For my post last week I shared how I was using Gesso, Gel Medium,  Gelatos® and a fun vintage postcard image to start building up my Art Journal. This week I'll be adding more layers with stamps, stencils, and additional Textural Accents.

I used  the same Gelatos® as last week (over a Gesso base) to give my board a coated with color look. I know I want to journal on a lot of my pages to I'm planning where to use the lightest colors as I color.

Using a Stamper's Big Brush Pen in Black #199 I used one of the Stampendous Stamps from this set called NK Studio Wired Cling Rubber Stamps (NKCRS02) by the artist Nathalie Kalbach.

Then I put down a messy layer of Chalkboard Paint where I thought I'd want my journaling to go.

And I then stamped on top of the dried Chalkboard Paint with a layer of white pigment ink using the Journal Lines Perfectly Clear Stamps (SSC1205):

Perfect grid lines for all of my journaling! In this case with the Chalkboard Paint the PITT Pastel Pencils will work perfectly for my journaling.

I added some more texture with Whipped Spackle, one of the Mixed Media Stencils and another stamp  NK Studio Grunge Cling Rubber Stamps (NKCRS03):

We started this journey last Monday and encouraged readers to join the designers every week for a month to create their own art journals. I hope you have your journal and inspiration piece picked out.

TiffArtJournalingWeek2.1

Hello Blogosphere! It's Tiffany here today with a Video Tutorial showing you how I created the foundation for my Art Journal Boards. You'll learn different ways to use Gesso, Gel Medium, and Whipped Spackle including Photo Transfers! You'll also see the various ways Stampendous Stamps lend AWESOME texture to those Art Journal pages.

I loved the versatility and quality of Stampendous Stamps, both the Cling & Clear stamps! Here are some of my favorites:NK Studio Marks Cling Rubber Stamps & Discover Today Perfectly Clear Stamps

 Once my art journal's foundation was dry, I went at hand-painted various titles with Chalkboard Paint & then added some color with PITT Pastel Pencils. This is similar to my Art Journal Cover's title!

TiffArtJournalingWeek2.2

 Thanks so much for stopping by! Stop by next week to see how I jazz it up a wee bit more!

Art Journaling Week 2 with Jen and blog hop with Stampendous

Art Journaling Banner 2We started this journey last Monday and encouraged readers to join the designers every week for a month to create their own art journals. I hope you have your journal and inspiration piece picked out.

JenMatottJOurnal - 1Last week, I showed you how I prepped my pages with some Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gel Medium and papers.  This week, I'm building the bases of all my pages with more of our Textural Accents to create an additional layer on the pages.

JenMatottJOurnal - 8Here, I'm using Gel Medium through one of our new Mixed Media Stencils. I will be adding more color and using it as a resist in next week's post.

JenMatottJOurnal - 9The Gel Medium will be milky until fully dry and then it turns clear!  It's like magic!  It stays somewhat textured and raised.

JenMatottJOurnal - 13
I also used the Gel Medium for adhering a Mixed Media Stencil onto the page itself.  I just adhered it down and coated over it to ensure good, even coverage.

JenMatottJOurnal - 10
Another page in which I 'm adding more Gel Medium to adhere papers.  I used Chalk Board Paint over it to create a center of interest to my journal page.

JenMatottJOurnal - 12

Using one of the Mixed Media Stencils, I created a scribbled frame using a PITT Pastel Pencil in white.

JenMatottJOurnal - 16

Some Gelatos® colors in the Pastel set were added and smudged.  I also dripped some wet Gelatos® Double Scoop® Color - Gold Champagne down the top of the page.  Once dry, it gives a beautiful shimmer to the page.

JenMatottJOurnal - 17

Stampendous was so very generous and sent us loads of stamp sets!  My favorites were the ones below from NK Studio called Kaffee Klatsch  and Wired.  I  adored the textures and shapes for my page here.

NKCRS02_Wired_PKG_800

NKCRS05_Kaffee_Klatsch_PKG_8001

I inked up the stamp with a Stamper's Big Brush pen in Black and stamped some of the smaller doily prints and the barbed circle. Once dry, the ink is permanent as it is India Ink!

JenMatottJOurnal - 19

That's it for this week's progress on my journal pages.  I hope you will continue on with us in your own journal and create bases for the pages.  Join me next week as I layer more and add more embellishment to my journal pages!

Show Your Statehood Love!

TiffChalkboardStateMain

Hello Blogosphere! It's Tiffany here with a photo tutorial for ya! I've made 5 of these for each state my husband and I have moved to! Here's what you'll need for this tutorial:

TiffChalkboardState1

1. Add a coat of Gel Medium with a foam brush to adhere wrapping paper.

TiffChalkboardState2

2. Apply Wrapping Paper burnishing out all the air bubbles with a spatula. Allow to dry.

TiffChalkboardState3

3. Add a thin coat of Gesso. Allow to dry.

TiffChalkboardState4

4. Adhere a state cut-out or mask (I used the state face font and my Sizzix eClips to cut this LA mask) using repositionable adhesive (Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L E-Z Dots Repositional Refillable) & trace outline of state. You can also freehand this part ;)

TiffChalkboardState5

5. Paint entire State area with Chalkboard Paint. I like to outline the state and get the little details with a small angular brush first. Dry

TiffChalkboardState6

6. Once dry, you can add PITT Pastel Pencil, Whipped Spackle, and/or White Stamper's Artist Pen accents. Try coloring dried Whipped Spackle with the Stamper's Big Brush Pens!

TiffChalkboardState7

So, here are some things I LOVE about our Chalkboard Paint that you may not find in others... It's a medium block matte color, so it looks almost like deep slate when it's dry! It also has more grit and texture to it lending to a truer chalkboard finish. It's VERY opaque, so a little goes a long way! You don't need any special finish to color it once it's dry!

Hope you enjoyed this tutorial,
