Peacock Feather

Happy Labor Day Paper House Fans!  Melissa joining you today with an art journal page for you, using a stunning photo from the Emerald Colorways Collection. Check out the shimmering, iridescent colors of the peacock feather! It inspired me to frame it with blues, greens, and lots of shine.

Supplies Used:

2016-08-29 15.02.25 peacock upper right  with watermark

To make this page I used a 9 x 12 watercolor paper art journal.  I started by applying texture paste through a stencil. I splattered on layers of teal, purple, and gold with a brush, drying after each layer. I repeated this two more times, then misted with water.  I sponged on gesso randomly because the page seemed too busy. I applied a lot of things to create more texture: micro-beads, seed beads, glass glitter, glitter glue, rhinestones, pearls, thread, mica flakes, and sequins.

I dry brushed gesso over the top of most of the elements, and then painted with a teal color. I outlined the photo with watercolor pencil.

Thank you so much for looking, and have a great week!

Wedding Layout

Weddings are beautiful, formal events and sometimes they get a little silly.  2015 Design Team Member Giorgia is showing us the silly side of her wedding with a lighthearted wedding layout today!  Giorgia also takes us on a tour of a wide variety of our products and how you can incorporate several different pieces to projects to add texture and dimension!

P1110229

Did you know there are sculpted puffy stickers available in a variety of words and fonts?  Giorgia used the love set but we have a good variety of them available!

The Cork’d Stickers also make a nice accent and add a different texture to projects.  Giorgia used a couple different sets to anchor her pictures and journaling.

We can’t forget rub-ons!  Giorgia used a Be Silly one to highlight her silly picture as well as to be a title for her layout.
