Hello,Kay M here today with an experiment with the
acrylic poursKay launched on Hochanda
at the weekend.You can still watch all
her shows on Rewind at the Hochanda web site.I had so much fun making samples for the shows and learnt a lotin the process.The great thing about acrylic pouring you
never know how it's going to turn out!Kay'sGo-Flow
and Cell-u-Likeformula's take the guesswork out of measuring all the
elements and work with allthe IndigoBlu
Having done a few projects
on flat surfaces I thought I'll have a go on some shapes, a few paper
macheornaments from my stash. Sue, from the TV design team did a couple of lovely egg shaped ones as samples for Kay's shows.
And when dry beads and tassel's were added. It was interesting to see how each one was different when the same paint colours were used.
still a fair amount of paint left so I did a dirty pour on to an A5 canvas
painted with black Gee-Sso-Good using
all the remaining paints, added a little water to each of them to get a good
pour, and the white base.
Check in to the shared
blog on the 19th November to see how it turned out!
Hello Cheremane here with you for today's post. I was so lucky and got to play with the new Acrylic Pouring items that have just been released with Kay live on Hochanda. I'd never tried it and oh wow I had so much fun.
First I added three different paints Marshmellow,Townhouse Teal, Raven Black & White Geeso Good along with some water ,Go-Flow and Cell-u-Like into a plastic cup. I used a 6 x 6 piece of watercolour card which I placed on top of the cup and then turned it upside down and let the paint do the work.
You need to leave it to dry fully preferably till the next day as thats what I did I did before stamping the sentiment from Mindfulness A5 stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black and then heat embossing with clear powder. Some Pours will take longer to dry depending how much paint you use.
Finally I stamped the Large Butterfly #2 and heat embossed it with clear powder before diluting some Raven Black paint with water and colouring the Butterfly once dry I put the the frame back together so it's all safe now behind glass.
Thank you for stopping by, I hope you've been inspired to try some paint pouring trust me you will love it.
Hi Everyone it's Mike here - My IndigoBlu design team project falls on Armistice Day (11th November) and the Remembrance Day weekend so it's only fitting that I create an art journal page in remembrance of all those who died or were injured in wars in the service of their country.
Hello Jannet here today, have you started
thinking about creating your Christmas/Winter cards and gifts yet? I have
actually made one gift already which is for my parents. This Snowy Feathersplaque, which features the
lovely Robin. For once I was quite happy with how it turnedout, so I thought it might look nice asa card too.
I started by creating a background by using a
brayer to applyStonewashed and
Terracotta Adirondack inks. and then spritzed over them with water.
The Robin stamped very nicely onto Watercolour
card, and I used Watercolours to give him his famous red breast. I then fussy
cut him, no feathers were harmed!
I found a comfortable looking twig for the Robin
to happily sit on. I dabbed on some fine modelling paste and then shook some
Unicorn Sparkles over it to create the glistening snow.
I stamped the Night before Christmas stamp from
the Sparkle and Glisten Stamp Set onto the background. To create the icicles I
applied a thick line of glossy accents to the top of the card and then stood
the card up so it dripped nicely down, I then shook Unicorn Sparkles over the
Carolyn here with you today. I had the pleasure of attending the IndigoBlu Secret Retreat up in Retford last weekend. What a weekend it was with various new products being used prior to launch dates. If you get the chance I can thoroughly recommend this to you all. Crafting, creating and laughing all weekend, we all had such fun! Take a look at Kay's Facebook Live page that was shared on Saturday 21st October to see what it was all about.
So today I'm sharing a new product that will be coming your way on Kay's One Day Special on November 11th and 12th on Hochanda. I had the chance to road test this over the weekend and had a further dabble this week. You may have seen on various sites people showing what they've created using the 'Dirty Pour' technique, well let me tell you, Kay has made this so easy with her new kit.
Introducing the fantastic IndigoBlu Acrylic Pouring Kit......
Here's what can be created and the possibilities are endless with no two projects ever being the same. Below are 4 tiles that I created at the retreat over the weekend.
So after arriving home I couldn't wait to try this again. The most difficult thing is choosing what colours to use!
The next step is mixing the colours with the products from the kit plus a good quality PVA. I mixed these in small plastic shot glasses.
The colours are then poured into a plastic/paper cup and it is this mixture of colours that is poured onto the coaster.
I chose to use a MDF coaster to pour my paint onto so first I had to seal it with the coat of Black Gesso to prevent it soaking into the wood. This was then placed into a foil tray so it can catch the drips of paint. I then began to pour.
Once its poured I rotated it from side to side to allow the paint to flow to the edges of the coaster. As you can see gloves are a must unless you want to get covered in paint.
I did add black to the corners and swiped through it with a needle to add to the effect.
I then left this overnight to dry and below is my finished coaster.
I can guarantee you'll love this kit and probably become addicted to the 'Dirty Pour'.
So tune in to Hochanda on November 11th at 6pm for Kay's first show. I'm sure you'll be impressed!!
Happy crafting and thank you for joining me today.
Today Ksenija is here, and I am happy to share with you a new project as a part of October inspiration from International DT.
I am demonstrating use of a silhouette stamp for a Clean and Simple card. A beautiful stamp does not call for anything more than a spectacular background. For my card I chose a tree stamp from Nature I stamp set.
I started with watercolouring the background on a piece of watercolour paper using pigment powders. I wanted to create a monochromatic background with a lighter center and intense shades closer to the edges. I added powder going from the center to edges and let the background air dry.
As soon as it has dried, I die cut a square panel with side 3" (app. 7,5 cm). Then stamped down the tree silhouette in black archival ink.
To assemble the card I foam padded it and adhered to a black square with side 3 1/8" (8 cm). The bold stamped panel looks better with a simple elegant sentiment. Plume stamp set contains simple one word sentiments that match well clean style cards. For my card I selected Breathe from this set and stamped it down to a white card base in black ink, then glued the tree panel to it.
Please share with me in comments what are your favourite IndigoBlu stamps this Autumn.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a nice week!
