Art-Zines and watercolors





Hello Friends
am sharing some Art-Zine I made using Twinkling H2O's by ColourArte and some stamps and Washi Tape. I made these for gifting my friends using Twinkling H2O’s . These are 7cm x 11cm and 7cm x 10 cm in size

(The word zine is short for magazine or fanzine, and refers to "self-publications, motivated by a desire for self-expression, not for profit", according to the Barnard Zine Library. The Oxford English Dictionary defines zine exclusively as a shortened form of fanzine.)
ColourArte Supplies :
Other Supplies:
Water color paper, stamps , washi Tape , archival inks
Procedure:
I used a 23 x 30 cm sheet of water colour paper and prepared the Twinkling H2O’s by spritzing with water and allowed to sit for 7-10 minutes
In the meanwhile cut and scored the water colour sheet in eight sections……..
Fold and crease your Zine and mark the page numbers  with a pencil so that it is easy to see the orientation of the pages once you start coloring and decorating…….
Zine 1……start adding colors………..

let the background colors dry and then add stenciling with contrasting colors using a sponge and Twinks ……….
Zine 1…The cover page…..Added washi tape ( the girl and the chevron strip) and sentiment ( stamped on tissue paper with archival ink and adhered with decoupage glue) ……..

Simon Says : Tear It Up




Hello Friends

Today I am sharing my third post as the Spotlight Designer for the Simon Says Monday Challenge. The theme this week is Simon says : Tear It Up




I will be posting special Spotlight Designer posts every Monday this month for the Simon says Monday Challenge, if you want to see my earlier posts you can see here and here





The theme for this week is Tear It Up and I created an Inspirational plaque for my elder son's desk. Well the theme this week to me is about breaking away and tearing off the set norms of society, doing the things which speak to you, not just fit in but think and attempt at being true to yourself !! 

I selected a very gentle color of pink for this as the feelings I wanted this to convey were of love, tenderness, support ,calmness, hope and optimism....and I selected Spun Sugar distress Ink.

1. I started with a mixed media card stock and stamped Hero Arts Blooming Meadows stamp and Butterflies using the Tim Holtz Visual Artistry stamp.


2. I distressed the edges with scissors and sponged with Spun sugar Distress Ink.
3. I have used paper from the DCWV 'Letters from the Home' stack . 
4. all paper strips and background mat paper is from the DCWV stack and has been torn using a steel ruler.

5.to create some texture and layered effect I have inked the edges of paper strips and used foam tape , some vintage stamps from the same stack are used in layers......
6. I cut out a tag shape out of a soft pink with a script design and stamped and heat embossed the sentiment using black embossing powder. 



7. The flower bunch is fussy cut from the same stack and inked lightly on the edges , then it is lightly embossed from the back using a ball tool to create a dimensional effect . 


you can see the layers and dimension in the picture below....finished with some splatters with black acrylic paint......




I hope you liked seeing the details of my project, do follow my blog if you like my work , do not forget to participate in the Simon Says Monday Challenge. This week the challenge is Tear It Up ,
