May Challenge with Aga

Hi All, today it is my turn for challenge  interpretation. I made a delicate vintage style hanger by means of Ranger stamps. I made a nice element which is just a second layer of the pattern stamped on a transparent side of foil. I used a piece of old tree bark I found once while walking with my kids in a park to fix the wires. I like to collect some natural things and use them in my works.





I used:
Dina Wakley stamps
Canson Watercolor Paper
Watercolors 
Archival Inks

BIG hugs for you :)

Alter Book From Heidi Williams

Hello Soul Sisters
Today we have a Guest Designer with us.
Please help us welcome Heide Williams to the blog

Heidi has created an altered book using some yummy goodies from Art and Soul Studio

 Using a recycled book which she is going to use as an art journal, Heidi altered the cover.

 
 
 

She painted the book cover with gesso, added book pages and over the top she used stencils and texture paste.

She added some stamping, coloured paint.

Her last step was to add the gold paint for highlights

Shine Bright May Challenge with Lisa Amiet


Hello all!
It's Lisa here today to share with you.

This month we have a gorgeous moodboard for you to play with


And this is my take on the challenge....


I went with a grungy style layout using the 7 Dots Studio Hazy Days collection.
It had the right elements I was after.


I have done some stencilling and stamping on my base 
before happily splashing away with some mists and sprays :) 


I really wanted my alphas to 'shine' (haha) and be bold and bright on my layout.
I found these older thinkers I had in my stash and some small typewriter letters for my title.


I have inked and distressed all my papers and elements. 


Lots of cardboard for added dimension and to help build up my layers.


I hope you like what I have come up with. I can't wait to see your entry!

Until next time 

Lisa 





Supplies Used:
Other: Thickers - Sketchbook Aqua, Tim Holtz Idea-ology Label Letters, Word Stickers and Black Thread from my stash :)

Art journal by Aga Baraniak

Hi All. I am very happy to present my inspirations on Art and Soul Studio blog. 
Today I have prepared for you a few tips on how to use the masks and sramps available online. See the pictures below:


I rubed Gelatos crayons firstly with fingers then water what made a smooth color transition.



I put a stencil on the surface and I stamp only empty space to get high quality picture.


I used gelli platte and acrylic paints to prepare a paper sheet which I used for stencil.


 I love to use my own pen doodles in my works. Sometimes I use fine-tip felt pen but it must be permament so that they don't smear too much.









Big hugs for You :)
Aga

Spread your Wings + Process Video by Lisa Amiet


Hello everybody!
It's Lisa here today and I am sooooo excited to be here! 

I am so lucky to have been chosen to be part of this fabulous Design Team 
and I am here to share my first creation as part of the team. 
I have created a layout to share with you all.

'Spread your Wings'


My first creation is full of layers. 
As you will get to know me, you will know that I LOVE layers
and any kind of dimension.


I have used the gorgeous House of Roses Collection from Lemoncraft.
I love the floral and vintage elements to these papers.



Lots of fussy cutting, which is also an obsession of mine :)


Lots of gorgeous flowers.



I also love distressing of my papers. 



I have used a dry brushing technique to get the pink shaded areas on my papers.


A cluster of the gorgeous flowers....


This layout features my gorgeous daughter, 
a few years ago now, but it's a favourite photo of mine :)


I have created a process video for this layout that you can watch below.




I hope you like what I have created! I have listed all the supplies I have used below.
I'll be back soon with some more to share with you.

Whale of a Tale..... by Cindy Porter

 Hi everyone, Cindy back with you today to share my latest piece for Art and Soul Studio, an intuitive painting "Whale of a Tale"  that I created using the Fluid Media paints from DecoArt....


haha.... did you get my little funny in the title... I know I know it was lame... but the play on words tickled my funny bone.... anyway as the piece says... "always remember to have a whale of a time!"

When I sat down to make a piece for this blog post, I had no idea what to paint... so I started as I always do if inspiration is lacking, and put some colour on paper, and let it just happen... and this was the result today... hope you like it...

I made a little process speed video so you can see how this intuitive piece came together...
Here is the video...
