Monster Party

Hello everyone , Mona here with a fun project. I have decided after seeing this gorgeous stamp set that I needed to create a journal page ... I will walk you thru the steps for creating this fun page.

I am working in my mini Dylusions creative journal  which you can special order at Kat Scrappiness . I have chosen this journal because I love the thickness of the pages, they will absorb pretty much any mediums.
I have started by die cutting a Gina Marie tree frame background die
My next step was to get all my elements stamped, coloured and fussy cut. I used my  Nano  stamping tool from Stampoholic to stamp my images from this fun stamp set called  Crazy Monsters by Mudra, using my black tuxedo memento ink pad. Then I coloured in my cute little monsters using my copic markers.
Here I have simply die cut two strips of grass using a die that I had in my stash. Used my Dylusions paints. I love using a few shades of the same colour to make it look streaky.
Now for the fun part, getting your background ready. I did the top part in blue to represent the sky and the bottom in green for the grass.  Again I used a few shades of the same colours to have it not so uniform , more streaky.
Adding texture is also one of my favourite parts of the project. I used one of my to go to stamp sets  by Dylusions called  basic background .  For the inks I used  Cobalt and Olive by Ranger and to add a little highlight in my sky, I used Wedding Dress by Memento Luxe.
Now that my background and all my elements are ready it's time to assemble everything. I used Matte Medium by Golden to adhere everything on my background and once everything was glued down  I added a layer over everything to seal my page which makes it easier to add shading and the finishing touches to my layout.
Here I started with my Faber Castell Pitt marker in black to outline and smudge it all along my elements. I then took a black sharpie marker and a white paint sharpie in white to make the frame around my page. For my final touch I had to add a bit of sparkle I used 3mm green star confetti sequins using my Crystal Katana tool.

Mixed media wood block doll canvas

Hi everyone I would love to share with you this very colourful Canvas that I did that was inspired by Marc Montano mixed media wood block dolls... when I saw it I just knew I had to make one I just wanted to turn it into a canvas.

I first started by adhering Tim Holtz tissue paper with mod pudge let it dry, added my colours by using different shades of my favourite gelatos. Used a stencil and gesso to add texture in a few places then edged my whole canvas with black sooth distress ink.

My blocs were cut in scraps of wood we have in garage and used same tissue paper as background to cover blocks and then painted with a solid colour using my inks

Face body and wings were images printed from a website that Marc Montano shares on his blog.

Rest of elements were all stamps and dies I had in my stash.  You can look below on picture to see supplies used.

This project was a lot of fun to don, hope you enjoy it 😊
