Pigment

Voor de tag van deze maand heb ik met pigmentpoeders gespeeld. Daar is makkelijk aan te komen als je op een steenworp afstand van een verfmolen woont, maar ook als je dat niet doet, zijn er tal van kunstschilderswinkels, ook op internet, die je er aan kunnen helpen.
In tegenstelling tot pigmentpoeders uit de hobbybranche zijn hieraan geen extra stoffen toegevoegd en moet je dus een 'plak' ingrediënt toevoegen om het te kunnen gebruiken.

Voor deze tag heb ik gebruik gemaakt van Magenta (en een extra item met Franse lak rood). Ik ben begonnen met het poeder losjes te mengen met gesso en dat met een paletmes op de tag aangebracht.

For this month's tag I played with pigments. You can buy them at an art store or as in my case at a paint mill. The powders contain only pigment so you'll have to add other ingrediënts to make it stick. You can make your own paint with it, plenty of recipes to be found on the web, or you can mix it with whatever you have. I mixed it loosely with gesso and used a palet knife to smear it on the tag.
For this tag I used Magenta.

Deze stansjes heb ik met zwarte gesso geverfd en vervolgens iridescerent medium gemengd met wat pigment aangebracht.

I painted these diecuts with black gesso and then added some iridesent medium mixed with the pigments.

De tag vervolgens bestempeld met Stazon.
SW S14011 - Franse tekst
SW S14010 - Achtergrond register

I stamped with Stazon.

Vervolgens vond ik het nog niet genoeg naar de achtergrond verdwijnen, dus ik voegde een glaze toe van multi medium gloss en pigments.
Trouwens, over multi medium gesproken, herinneren jullie je mijn eerste tag van dit jaar nog? Daarop had ik een skin gebruikt. In de Craft Stamper van augustus zie je een heel artikel daarover met mooie voorbeelden van Trish Lattimer.


I then decided to push it more into the background by using a glaze of multi medium gloss mixed with pigments. Talking about multi medium, do you remember my first tag this year? The one I used a skin on? There is now a full length article on skins by Trish Lattimer in the Craft Stamper of august with great examples.

Hierna ben ik met de melting pot aan de gang gegaan. Eerst met was waaraan ik de pigment (Franse lak rood) had toegevoegd. Prachtig resultaat, wat ik niet op de tag kon gebruiken omdat ik naturel was gebruikt had. Hierdoor was de kleur niet mooi ten opzichte van de tag. Omdat ik geen extra project pan had om het met kleurloze was uit te proberen, ben ik maar verder gegaan met UTEE.

CP N397 - Winter limb


Next I heated up the melting pot. First I used the pigment (French red this time) with wax which gave a wonderful result, but because I used the natural wax the colour slightly changed and I didn't like it on the tag. So I set aside the project pan and continued with UTEE.

Ik heb witte UTEE gemengd met de pigment in verschillende hoeveelheden voor de hartjes. Het ene vlindertje was eerst enkel wit en heb ik daarna ook met de glaze bewerkt. Vervolgens zwarte UTEE toegevoegd en daar het laatste hartje mee gemaakt. in de vorm van de vlinder heb ik eerst pigment gestrooid en vervolgens het UTEE mengsel eroverheen gegoten.

Dyan Reavely - The right words

I mixed white UTEE with the pigment for two of the hearts. The top butterfly was made with pure white UTEE on top of which I added the same glaze. I then added black UTEE to the mix and poured the small heart. Before pouring the black UTEE mix into the butterfly mold I sprinkled a bit of pigment powders first so the UTEE would adhere to that.

crayon box

Good morning everyone ...
It's Suzanne here again and I'm sharing a crayon box.

supplies
stamps
pen CP Q474 from the plate writers PLATECP20
and stamps from the plate writing letters NSPL107


others
distress paint spiced marmelade TH-TDD36463
evergreen bough TH-TDD38528
seedless preserves TH-TDD36456
acrylic paint lime yellow
StazOn ink pad jet black
some pearls from a broken necklace
glossy accents




We had this cylinder-shaped box sitting around for quite some time and it served to contain different stuff at different times.
But lately my (not anymore) little one used it for her colour pencils. So I decided to jazz it up it a little bit :-)
I masked the window, primed the box with a layer of gesso and painted that over with acrylic paint. Then I stamped the images and dabbed on some distress paint, some small pearls were adhered onto the lid.
Weel, I hope you like it a bit :-)

Thank you ever so much for your visit and I'd love to see you here again and again :-)
Hugs, Suzanne xx

School's out.

Good morning, 
it's the dragon here again, with another page in my Critters book.
My twin girls finished school for the summer last Thursday, so we spent Friday making a page for 
the Critters book.
 I stamped and masked the letter tiles, stamped the critters and the school master.
These were all then coloured with distress inks. I then painted over each stamped image with a thin
coat of acrylic vanish. I allowed it to dry completely then let my girls go crazy with the fire-work stamp.
They used bright coloured distress ink as this could then be wiped of the vanished images.
I know the fire-works are not stamped perfectly but it really doesnt matter for this page... 
the girls had loads of fun helping make this.


SUPPLIES USED
MEMENTO INK....TUXEDO BLACK
DISTRESS INK..FADED JEANS
STAMPS USED

Heart T-Light Holder




Stamp Used:

Morning, Mark here, I am sharing a little T-light candle holder, The heart started as plain grey cast cement.
The heart was given a coat of Gesso and then a coat of Decoart white acrylic paint, using the New fluid acrylics from Decoart the colours were added as a strong wash giving the almost tie die look.
The image was stamped with archival black ink 3 times to cover the top of the heart.Using the black modelling paste from the Decoart media line and a pallet knife I went round the edge of the heart smoothing out randomly. Some dry brushing with white picked out all the details and gave a faux stone finish.
The hole for the candle was painted black and also dry brushed.
Once all was dry the Heart was given a couple of coats of Satin Varnish, this really helped lift the colours and make them pop.
Thanks for stopping by, Mark xxx

Hello all ...
It's Suzanne here, finally sharing a 'summery' piece.


supplies
stamps
from plate microscopic artforms plants 1 PLATESW89 
plate 91 nature ornamental forms PLATESW91

others
Dylusion sprays post box red DR-DYC33912
squeezed orange DR-DYC33936

modeling paste 10240   
inka gold 
plaster cast
stencil with a floral pattern
duct tape
linen ribbon
sandwich paper
and some awning cloth I got from a local shop *hehe*
some flowers :-D




It started out as a small woodchip basket I dug up in the basement

I covered it with plaster cast so I'd have surface to apply some modeling paste onto.

Then some modeling paste was added through a stencil - and took a lifetime to dry :-D
When it had, finally, I sprayed the Dylusion inks on, let it dry again, applied some inka gold over the raised areas and covered it with triple thick gloss.

The inside was covered with awning cloth (I struggled with for quite some time ...) and then I adhered the linen ribbon on the outside and the inside around the edges. And I fastened two paper handles - a bit of recycling from a paper bag I got from one of my favorite shops :-)
The flowerpot is wrapped with sandwich paper, sprayed with Dylusion spray pure sunshine.


So, that's it. You've seen the result in the first pic.

Thank you ever so much for stopping by and having a look ... I really appreciate your visit so very much.
Please stop by again and have a look at the wonderful pieces the DT makes.

Have a great day, all of you,
hugs, Suzanne xx

Altered clock.

Good morning,
 its the Dragon's turn to share a stamped project with you.
I saw a programme a few weeks ago about the 'Antikythera mechanism',
I loved the look of the corroded metal so i tried to replicate it on this altered clock.

I used clay, rolled out thinly and stamped into it.
Once the clay sheets were baked I adhered them to the clock.
I added flakes of dry clay and filler to the edges to give the appearance of the outer casing being corroded away.

Once everything was totally dry i painted the entire clock with black paint.
Then dry brushed with dark brown and mid brown paint.
I stamped the centre of the clock face with a watch mechanism stamp, 
for added interest.
To give it a real rusty corroded appearance i used ORIGINAL RUST,
rubbed all over it....twice.
Below you can see the rusty detail.... i think it looks pretty authentic.
