Mixed Media Journal with Expressions Crafts

Hi everyone, Steph here today and I've created a video on my mixed media book.

I began by painting a journal and the chipboard embellishment with black gesso.  I used the Brick Wall stencil with molding paste to add dimension, then spritzed the journal with Imagine's Fireworks Shimmery Craft Sprays in Pear Tart, Summer Sky and Tangelo.

Butterflies from the Happy Fly Stamp set were randomly stamped on the cover.  Several butterflies and leaf stems were die cut from Rinea Foiled Paper and added to the cover along with a flower from my stash.  To finish, a phrase from the Happy Fly Stamp set was stamped and added to the left side.

I've created a video of my process.

Thanks for stopping by.

Decoupage bottled art with cycle de' amour

Hey Guys!!
Am back again. I am truly not a decoupage artist. But with the cycle de’ amour decoupage papers by expressions craft, I have explored this beautiful art of decoupage. And now I am in love with it. So here is my another project with Cycle de’ amour decoupage paper. I have altered the simple bottle of keventers into a beautiful home decor piece 

In my first part of decoupage I have made mixed media canvas with cutout from these speciality decoupage paper.

This time I have converted a simple plain bottle into a beautiful home decor item.
Here is a short guideline  to make this bottle art.
These 100 GSM papers are easy for fussy cutting . I have fussy cut the bicycle and it ornate border from the sheet and have also used the border from the sheet near the neckline of my bottle.
First I have cleaned and dried the bottle. Then have applied the coat of gesso with paint brush. After the coat have dried up, I have applied the co-ordinating color of chalk paint with the paint brust. I wanted textures on my bottle so have used paint brush. Then I have used crackle medium to create crackle effect.
After this, I have pasted the cut-piece of decoupage paper on my bottle in the center using decoupage speciality glue. Then it was time to add some dry bush colors for shading and some flower embellishments.
I am happy with the outcome. Hope you too like my take on decoupage.

Altered diary cover

Hi friends,

I am back on Expressions craft blog with a new inspiring post.

I am sure you all must be having a personal diary or journal. Everyone maintains a diary. How about an idea for altering its cover, I have come with a post where u can alter your diary cover and beautify it with Expressions craft decoupage paper and chippies embellishments.

I have used "Mandala 2" decoupage paper and beautiful chippies from "Circle sentiment set" and "Star danglers" by Expressions craft.

Lets have a look at my Altered diary cover...


I took the Mandala 2 decoupage paper and cut the centre circle and the corners along the pattern as shown.....

As I wanted some of the black part of my diary cover to show. 

Adhered the paper with gel medium on the diary cover. I have used half cut pearl lines to cover the entire outline and used star and "DREAM" sentiment to further decorate my cover.

I have coloured the dream chippie with black paint and added a "BIG" sentiment on a star too.

Few more close ups I would like to share....

Hope u all like my project and would love to alter your journal or Diary cover....
Guys happy crafting....Use Expressions craft chippies and decoupage paper for these beautiful results.
