Tag Archive | Put a bird on it

Upside down

So finally I get some spare time to craft, other than wedding invites that is, which as yet I can’t show on here. Just enough time to complete a page in my journal. dsc_6118-2

I used Dylusions paints in Fresh Lime, Dirty Martini, Cut Grass and Polished Jade to create the backgound with a ranger distress tool and a Dylusions stencil called Diamonds. The birds are a Dylusions set called Put a bird on it which I stamped onto thick paper, fussy cut out and coloured using Spectrum Noir pens and also a metalic pink pen.

I used a stencil called Fond of Foliage to draw the leaves and coloured and doodled with various pens.  The words are from another Dylusion stamp set call The Right Words, I stamped onto thick paper and cut up sticking onto my page to form a triangle sort of shape with the birds. I used a black pen to scribble around the words. The inspiration for this page was the Dylusions Facebook Challenge,which this month was GREEN and TRIANGLES and FOLIAGE.

Dylusions challenge- green + animal

May…. a very busy month in our family for birthdays, so a lot of cards, pressie and food ! Back on the diet next month 🙂 Its also my birthday so it also means lots of new crafty goodies for me, some of which I used to make my entry for this months Dylusions Facebook challenge. This month the challenge was green and animals,  I had an idea of using an old wolf stencil for the animal part and used Dirty Martini and Fresh Lime Dylusion paints for the green part. I started by covering the page with the greens using a Distress blending tool. Next I randomly stamped  with Vibrant Turquoise and one of the stamps from Basic Backgrounds from Dylusions. When dry I used stencils and Black Marble paint to cover the page in black allowing the background to show through. Dylusions wolf

And then I started with my white pen…. first tiny circles around the “moon”, then using Dylusions journal block the lines. I filled the spaces inbetween the lines with circles and hexigons, the hexigons where done using Dylusions Small Honeycombe stencil.  Whilst doing this journal page I cleaned my blending tools on another page, so I ended up with two journal pages.

My second page started as a cleaning page so the colours are the same, but I also used Cut Grass. Using Dylusions Put A Bird On It  and Shrooms sets, I stamped and cut out two birds and loads of leaves. The words are from another Dylusions stamp set called The Right Words. I coloured with Dylusion paints, mixing Cut Grass and After Midnight to get a darker green for the top bird. I stuck my peices on using matt medium and left to dry. Then I started with the white pen again!! I coloured in all the circles on the leaves, I had intended just to highlight a few but got carried away ! I aslo highlighted around the words and the birds. Two different pages using different techniques but both very enjoyable to do, I hope you like them both.
