DT projects 3 & 4 featuring Studio 490

Hi all,
Here is Astrid again with the last two projects for this month, this time using some more of the Studio 490 Art Parts” and a set of stamps. I know, I know, it’s March today already….

My first project is a double page out of my art journal. I am not going to tell you exactly how I did it, for the whole thing with art journaling is that anything goes. Just in general terms, I used a combination of paints, sprays, water- soluble crayons, collage and of course the stamps, some of which I altered and played around with.

Here is a picture of what my set of stamps look like, that way it is easier to see how I played around with them.

For my next project I used more bits from the Studio 490 “Art Parts” Sample Pack in combination with the stamps.

I covered the large flower head with paper and inked it with Vintage Photo distress ink. The smaller flower head I covered with card, which had first been embossed with one of the Tim Holtz embossing folders.. The rosette and centre were made previously and were sitting around in my stash. The stand of the flower was made by glueing various of the Art Parts together and then embellished with some of the stamps, stamped on strong card, coloured and cut out.

By now the lucky winners of our contest have been announced, congratulations to Helen and Gabrielle!! I hope you will enjoy your Studio 490 goodies!!

Well, that’s it from me. Next week Gillian will be back showing you her projects with the products we will be using in March. (You’ll love them, but I am not giving anything away…)
