Playing with Paint card with video tutorial

http://www.simonsaysstampblog.com/mondaychallenge/
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Playing with Paint".

As it’s the first Monday of the month we are showcasing a brand/company. This week we are all using some fabulous products from Dina Wakely. You don’t have to use them to join in with the challenge but if you have them we would love to see them used.


This time I played with Gloss Sprays from Dina Wakely for the first time. I had already seen some videos of it and how cool they mix, especially if it is on a surface that the paints can not soaki inimmediately. First started with collaging the background with Collage Paper Botanical and normal tissue paper, but also with pieces of old book paper and Washi Tape. On top of it I applied a layer of White Gesso, and then a layer of Clear Gesso. Just the way I like my Gesso ;).

Enjoy the Ride card with video tutorial

Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Take Me For A Ride".


For this challenge I was inspired by a hot air balloon ride, and I started with a collage of Botanical Collage Paper, old book paper, tissue paper and washi tape. I glued all this down with Soft Matte Gel, which is really incredible for collaging. When the gel was dry I first applied a layer of White Gesso and then a layer of Clear Gesso. The Clear Gesso isn't necessary, but I think that Clear Gesso gives a nicer finish than White Gesso.

Shooting for the Stars card with video tutorial

http://www.simonsaysstampblog.com/mondaychallenge/
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Shoot for the Stars".


When I think of stars at the end of June early July, I think of the American 4th of July celebration. And I was inspired by those colors and so I used red and blue for my card. I started collaging the background and used Collage Paper Typeset, Washi Tape, old book paper and scraps of pattern paper. The adhesive I used for collaging is Soft Matte Gel. I put it in a smaller jar so that I can use it more easily.

 

After the collaging was finished, I applied a layer of White Gesso, to tone down the colors and then a layer of Clear Gesso. I think Clear Gesso has a nicer finish. When the gesso was dry, I started applying color. I started with Liquid Acrylic Deep Turquoise and mixed Infusions In The Navy through it. In the other corner I used Liquid Acrylic Carmine, this is a very orange red, and mixed it with Infusions Frankly Scarlet and Nuvo Shimmer Poweder Catherine Wheel.
For the Paper Doll I used the VersaMarker together with Distress Embossing Glaze Fired Brick and Weathered Wood.

Sprayed Background card with video tutorial

http://www.simonsaysstampblog.com/mondaychallenge/
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Sprays and Splashes".


Thanks to Tim Holtz's Facebook lives, I've used my sprays more often lately, but I still find it difficult to use sprays. I used Distress Oxide and Distress Spray Stains this time. I started with a little water, so that the sprays blend nicely and the Distress Oxide Spray reacts immediately. I applied 2 layers of spray.

The Brothers card with video tutorial

http://www.simonsaysstampblog.com/mondaychallenge/
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "It's a Man Thing".


For this week, I was still captivated by Tim Holtz's Facebook Live about the Distress Paints from last week, as well as Distress Weathered Wood, the color that I rediscovered due to the lack of the new Distress color. I started with Collage Paper Typeset and some scraps from old book paper to pattern paper and other tissue paper. I applied this with Soft Matte Gel. This is for me the best glue for collaging and adhering other things, it's really very versatile.

 

After a coat of White and Clear Gesso, I applied some texture with Texture Paste and the Crate stencil. When it was dry, it was time to apply color. I only used two colors for the background, black and Weathered Wood Distress Paint. By using a light and a dark color, you get a lot of variations in between. I rarely use extreme almost opposite colors, and never liked light colors, but have completely changed my mind.
I colored the brothers with Distress Crayon Antique Linen and Stormy Sky, and Tattered Rose Distress Marker. Such a shame that these Distress Markers are discontinued.
