Creative Jump Start #3 And #4

I thought I may
need to double up on showing you my projects to get them all in. Here is what I created for lovely Heidi Swapp's mask/stencil tips and for USArtQuest...


You would think
that a woman that has been crafting since she was in her teens could cut out a heart mask at first try. I won't tell you how many are in my trash can at the moment. I did (finally) manage to make one to fit the page and do Heidi's masking and stenciling technique.


I ran into another
snag with not having any 12x12 stencils. I had to move my smaller one twice and didn't get quite enough spray in the center. I've since ordered several new larger stencils... good excuse to buy!


Inks;
Spray - Lindy's Stamp Gang Cotton Candy Pink Starburst
Distress - Worn Lipstick, Spun Sugar
Archival - Jet Black
Stencils;
Studio Calico Bubbles, homemade heart mask 
Stamps;
Unity Insightful Meadows
Misc;
Faber-Castell black S Pitt pen


Now USArtQuest...


No set techniques...
so I just played around with inks. I don't own any USArtQuest product... so I need to check out what's available.


Inks;
Distress - Shaded Lilac, Dusty Concord, Picked Raspberry
Archival - Jet Black
Sprays;
 Glimmer Mist - Marshmallow
Lindy's Stamp Gang - Scintillating Silver
Goosebumps - Clear Texture
Stencils;
Crafter's Workshop - Tile Texture, Punchinella, Dandelions


Misc;
Golden Matte Soft Gel, Prima flowers, cardstock flourish, feather, Prima paper scraps


I wish you could
see this shimmer and texture... the combination of the gel medium, Goosebumps and Scintillating Silver are magnificent... then you have the distress inks reacting to the gel medium and "bleeding" into it to create a fabulous blend of colors and textures and beneath that the subtile ghosting of the Dandelions stencil. LOVE it!!!
Sometime soon  
I want to show you a mini album and an altered Starbuck's bag.

Linda said...

what pretty art Linda B! I've been following the Jumpstart series too-so fun, and there's always something to learn no matter how long one's been arting. I've been jotting some things down-so far I got some fun duct tape and taped the edges of my stencils (from Julie Balzer's jumppstart).
