Happy where she was

Hello everyone,

It's  my turn on the blog again today and I have an art journal page to share with you.

I have used the Distressed Harlequin Background pieces that I had left over from my last project.

This page was made with a piece of pattern paper by Prima called 'love letter' from the Pastiche collection. I added some 'Old paper' Distress Ink around the edges and collages pieces of an old envelope on it. I bought this in an antique shop and it has a letter too. For now I just used the envelope with the address on it. Next I added some gesso where the chipboard was going to be and  stamped the background randomly for more interest. I then added the stitch lines around the edges with a black marker. 
I added my altered chipboard ( I have made a YouTube tutorial of how I did this; link below)  and some other bits and pieces like cambric and some lace flowers and stuck my photo on top.  Lastly I added the sentiment. 

Here are some close ups: 

This is the chipboard I used. I had some left over pieces from my last project and decided I might as well use them but then in a different way. 

Here is the link to the video tutorial :

Thank you so much for stopping by today !

Door Sign with Olga

Hello friends of UmWowStudio! Here is Olga with you today!

And I will show you the door signs for kids rooms that I have made with wonderful chipboard from UWS.

For coloring of chipboard I have used aquarelle colors! So colorful! First you must cover the chipboard with gesso and than color it!

And here is the grungy variant...

All is covered with gold patina :) The kids love it!

Stay creative!

Supplies I used:

Man in the Moon
Dream Catcher

Today I'd like to share my newest art journal page. This small piece of mixed media is my daily reminder to not be complacent, to not limit myself to what I know and am comfortable with, but to look further afield, to be open minded, flexible to fully explore life.

I used two different stencil: Damask & Dahlia and some different chipboards. 

I hope you'll feel inspired ;)
