Life is about Happy Moments - by Elisa Ablett for Paper Rose Studio




Hi Crafters,

It is my turn today to share an inspirational project for Paper Rose Studio.

I wanted to create a mixed media layout featuring a few challenges for myself!! Firstly, colours I don't scrap with very often, Purple, Pink and Green, then loads of white space and to finish off girly girl elements. 

The layout features

Sketchy Floral Hello Stamp Set

Hugs

Ignore Reality - Art Journal page by Elisa Ablett



Hi Crafters,

Elisa here from the design team for Ink Art Designs with my latest creation for you, an art journal page featuring a nervy dog with a bad coffee habit. 

The background colours are created using Distress Ink Oxides in a few different techniques including smooshing colour and spraying with water and also using the ink pad through a stencil and activating the Oxides with a spritz of water. 

I also stamped and coloured Enervy (the nervy dog) using watercolours and paint pens and gave the poor pup some bloodshot eyes to go with his coffee habit. 

Here are the products from the Ink Art Designs website along with the links!

Merry Christmas by Elisa Ablett


Hi all, 

My turn to share a project for Ink Art Designs today and as it's still Christmas in July over at Ink Art Designs, you can see I went with another Christmas design along with a far bit of snark !

I started this art journal page with a pastel watercolor wash in the background along with a white crackle paste stenciled bubble design.

I have been working in my small 5x7 Dylusions Art Journal and I have been converted to using washi tape to tape around the edges to create a border for my design. Just looks a whole lot neater !

The main stamped image is from Lost Coast Designs Stamp Company and you can find their stamps on the Ink Art Website. I just love this 50s girl, so versatile and looks fabulous on any stamped project.

Let's take a closer look :-) 


Add some die cut circles as Christmas baubles and a great snarky quote!

Merry Freaking Christmas by Elisa Ablett


Christmas in July !!
πŸŽ…πŸŽ…πŸŽ…πŸŽ…πŸŽ…πŸŽ…πŸŽ…πŸŽ…πŸŽ…πŸŽ…πŸŽ…

Hi everyone,

My turn to share inspiration for Ink Art Designs and we are creating all sorts of Christmas in July projects this month.

For this snarky Christmas card I used a couple of Katzelkraft Stamp sets including the new Owl set and you can't go past the Accessories stamp set to add those seasonal elements to your Katzelkraft stamp sets - making them even more versatile!



I used a great product from Decoart, its called Snow-tex, it creates a snow like texture on your projects and I love using it on my Christmas and winter creations.

To create my snarky scene, I first stamped the owl and christmas hat and branch and used a small round brush and my trusty Colour Blast watercolour set to add colour to my stamped images. 

I rummaged around in my 'Christmas paper box' and found a couple of off cuts of christmas scrapbooking paper that I thought would make the stamped images pop!

Here are the products used from Ink Art Designs along with the links.




That's it from me today, thanks for stopping by the blog.

Make Art Now - Art Journal Page for Viva Las VegaStamps



Hi Crafters,

Elisa here from the design team with my latest inspiration for you for the month of June.

Halfway through this crazy year already! 

Who else has been crafting and creating more during the last 5 months with all that's happening in the world? I find creating therapeutic from the stresses of everyday life and found a bit of solace in my craft room during quarantine. 

I thought I would create an Art Journal page featuring the paint brush from Cat Kerr and all the lovely grungy marks from Plate 1455 to document my love of art.

Here are a few close ups, the page features a background I made using photo paper and watercolour inks plus a gel print from my stash. 




I have included a list and photos of the Viva products I used below:-

Plate 1455Make Art Now 1 1/4 x 1
Magic Maker Paintbrush by Cat Kerr 2 x 4 1/2


Other Products:

Photo Paper
Colour Blast Artists Inks
Dina Wakely Acrylic Paint & Washi Tape
Gel Plate
Assorted Stencils

Me ? Crazy ? - Art Journal page by Elisa - Ink Art Design Team


Hi Stampers,

Elisa here from the design team for Ink Art Designs with my latest creation, a fun art journal page.

What do you get when you cross a snarky frog with a unicorn and loads of colour? lol

To start my page I added Watercolour Inks to watercolour paper using a wet on wet technique and blotting with a baby wipes to take away some of the bright colour. I saved my baby wipe and waited for it to dry, I then peeled the layers of the baby wipe apart and fussycut cloud shapes from one of the thinner layers. 

Add your book paper and sew in bright coloured thread around the paper.  Add a black border in a watercolour black pencil. Adhere your clouds to the page and add your stamped and coloured images. I decided to add a stencilled border to really make the colours pop!

Here are some of the products used from Ink Art Designs shop:
