High Hopes... by Preeti

Hi folks :) Good morning! For the August Challenge where the theme is "High Hopes" I have created a Grungy Mixed Media Art Journal Spread, titled, "In the Sky". The theme this month is so interesting & you are free to interpret it any way you like! I was inspired by dragons. Hence, I've used a dragon as my focal image here along with the colour red, which signifies fire. I think it is important to always stoke the fire of ambition within ourselves and follow our dreams

Here are some photos of the Art Journal Spread:


You can find the process details below!














Process:
1. Applied heavy white gesso to the art journal pages to prepare them for mixed media work
2. Created a collage on the pages using tissue papers & adhered them using collage medium
3. To add textures and interest, did background stencilling, by applying modelling paste through a Finnabair stencil onto both the pages, while the paste was still wet, sprinkled on Magical Mysteries Embossing Powder- Dragon's Egg & heat embossed it
4. Added red colour to the background by spraying with water and adding Starburst Squirts by Lindy's Gang. I let the colour flow naturally and dried the pages. 
5. Then did background stamping with a couple of text stamps using black archival ink 
6. Created die cuts (for layering) using thick cardstock and heat embossed them using Baked Texture Embossing Powder- Rustic Indigo
7. For the focal element, created a die cut dragon & heat embossed it using Baked Texture Embossing Powder- Blizzard
8. Adhered all the elements to the pages using a strong glue and added word stickers by 7 Dots Studio
9. In the end, distressed the edges of the pages with distress inks and created white & black ink splatter. 

Thanks a lot for your precious time :)
Stay Blessed
Preeti

Hi all! I have a new tutorial showing you how to create this steampunk wall hanging.






Paint the wings with black metallic paint and sprinkle on the embossing powder before it dries. Repeat this process with the cogs and word.



Paint the base and then add a texture paste before adding the embossing powder and melting it.


Keep adding layers of embossing powders and then start adding micro beads into the mix to layer up the texture. once everything has set, start gluing down the layers of cogs and the wings. Add pearls, charms and beads to the project to finish it.


Here's a look at some of the finished closeups.

Hello for this project I created embossed tissue leaves. I had high hopes of creating a realistic fall leaf for my fall projects.


These leaves were created in three simple steps
1.) Die cut leaves using favorite leaf die and stacked tissue paper.
2.) Cover leaf with embossing ink and embossing powder.
3.) Heat leaf using a heat gun.



Embossed leaves can be use for any fall project. I used them to create a wreath. I hope you will give this simple project a try this autumn.

Happy Crafting!
Michelle
