Colour and design (Card making).

text placeholder-3

I’m sure by now you will see a trend with my creative habits, I like working with a certain colour pallete and I tend to start out with one idea and just develop it as I create.  My aim today was to create some masculine cards so I went with navy and white for this first lot of cards.

Navy and white is such a classic combination that I love in most areas, especially in my home decor.  I find it easy to create cards when I’m just using a simple combination.

Rooted in Nature is such a versatile set and I went on to expand my designs using sahara sand card stock. I think that these are great designs for both men and women.

Rooted in nature allows you so many options especially for designer backgrounds.  I will show a few of my other designs below.  With the next group of cards I thought I would go for colour and I hope I have shown you how versatile one stamp set can be.

Next I couldn’t help but get some pink…if you are ever stuck for a colour combo just add pink to the mix and you will never look back!

What do you think? I love the pink and sahara sand combination. Next week I will show you some other interesting colour combinations that really work.

 

Hope you enjoy!

Much love

Crafting art!

Inspiration from Kelly Rae Roberts and others.

This is my way of creating fun art that can be framed, turned into cards or made for book or box covers.  Simple creative ways to use up scraps of paper and fabric.  A great process to develop your drawing and painting skills with simple lines and basic tools.  You will have some amazing results and so much fun creating!  Ideal for art journalling pages too!

I have created three different designs ( I call my angel girls), two that covered shoe boxes and one framed which will eventually go into my art journal when I’m ready to create something different.

Materials needed:

Heavy duty paper or card board

Water colour paper

Water colours (paints)

White Gesso

Gold acrylic paint

Brushes

Matt Gel

Scraps of designer paper or old magazines

Here are several designs I created in one morning of painting, gluing and just having fun.
