Good morning everyone :) Erin Blegen here to share with you my projects for August. I've got a bit of variety today, so I hope there's a little bit of something to suit the different tastes out there!
Let's start with my art journal page:
I'm new to art journaling, and am really loving the process- even if "flat" layouts/projects aren't my usual style. But I like that it forces me to try new techniques and work with different mediums to replace my usual flowers and frill ;)
These Manor Hinges were just what I needed to accent this page. After starting out with gesso, I used a script stamp and applied randomly over the surface. I then added a touch of watercolors and some gold embossing enamel.
Next up, I have a layout to share:
I couldn't wait to use this title for my beautiful niece Lilah. It was a perfect fit ;)
Just a little bit of gesso and that was all it needed!
These new Graduated Circles are just awesome :). So many things you can do with them- I used this one as a frame. After applying a random bit of gesso, I added a bit of embossing enamel and zapped it with a heat gun.
Finally, these Berry Stems were the perfect touch for this layout.
All Natural Set
Last, I have a tag to share:
A good tag needs a great accent piece. And that is what I found in this Ironwork Accents piece.
I've used a transparency in the past to back my chipboard, and I really liked that- so I did it again here. It made it easy to apply my title. I've again done some stamping and used some embossing enamel to decorate this piece, before adding a few beads as a final touch.
I hope you enjoyed my post today :) Thanks so much for coming by...
and don't forget about the August Sketch Challenge! There are just a few days left- so don't miss out, okay?
Take care :)
