Spritz and Spray 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 Spirtzing and Spraying.

Do you like spritzing and spraying? It's so much fun, isn't it? It's a quick way to give an artsy look to your project. For my project I've used two colors Distress Spray Stain and the ZigZag stencil. That way if you don't necessarily like the spray spletter look, you can use them for their beautiful colors and make a gorgeous background. I must say that I'm a spray spletter look lover, but I wanted to make a subtle background with a stencil and with a light color in the middle that works great.



I absolutely love my new stamp from Impression Obsession, called Wooden Plank. You're gonna see that stamp in projects to come for sure. Woodgrain is still very popular, also in home interiors. Lately I get my inspiration from there. And finally I've used the Children stencil that I have maybe for two years now...



For the whole process, see the video below.

Dina style inspired tags 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 Ray of Sunshine. We are showcasing Dina Wakley products if you have them.

I think Dina Wakley's style is totally awesome. She is very good with the use of colors. And I like her style of drawing, it's quite amazing. It has a nonchalant feel, but there is a lot of technique and knowledge behind her art.
 

For this challenge I made two tags. The first one didn't get recorded, because it was late in the evening and I don't have enough light then. But I was in a crafty mood and wanted to go wild with colors. I used  Dina's techniques and her color use wherever possible, but I also have added my own style to the tags.

 

When I see the result of the color explosion, I really need to do this more often. What a cheerful colorful tags, they make me so happy! To make the color stand out a little more I drew some outlines with a white Gelly Roll pen around the Leaves.

 

Lately I make a video of all my projects, so I needed to make another tag and record it so you can see how I've created my tag. It so fun to share, but it's also fun for me to watch it sometimes.

  
I absolutely don't have any drawing skills! It's so bad that I can't even trace an image. But with this Dina Leaves mask I was able to fake some drawing skills, LOL! What an amazing effect  a black aquarelle pencil gives!
See below the video of the second tag that I made from start to finish.

12 tags of 2016 - January

Hi everyone,

It's Tim tag time again. Fortunately, Tim has decided to continue the 12 tags in 2016. For this year, he's gonna remix techniques from previous years in a new tag. What a great idea! For the January tag, he used the techniques of November 2013 and January 2014.

It's great revisit some of those "older" techniques again. But learning new techniques, is something I enjoy even more. I'm sure we're gonna learn some new techniques from Tim as well in future tags.
