Mad hatter by Titbelsoeur


Hi there, this is Titbelsoeur today, sharing my inspiration AJ page of the month with you.
I have used an old background page I have once made for a circus-like album, as I thought it should perfectly fit with this Mad Hatter... 
meaning that one should never throw old papers !!
You never know whether you will use them or not !
I made this monoprinted background spraying ink to a cutting board, then used stencils with ink and acrylic paint.
I  colored this nice guy and his lovely cat with my usual Promarkers

Inspiration : Mad Hatter Portrait

Sal has now set up a proper website for her images (although the etsy with still be open)

Can't wait to see your makes in our monochrome challenge !

Chubby Fairy

Here's a lovely image from SLS Lines, she's called Chubby Fairy. I think she is totally adorable! I added a fun sentiment from Hobby Lobby, "You can never have too much Happy."  She looks like she would bring a smile to the people around her.
Drop by the new store for SLS Lines images, and then check out this month's challenge. The theme is monotone. So pick your favorite color and create a card.

Chill Out....

Hi Everyone!
Sharing a large journal page creation today using a fun image from the store "Goth Girl with Striped Leggings" - just love this image - so great to colour and create this page with!
You can find her in one of 2 places - at the Etsy Store or Sal's New Website along with all the other amazing images, clipart and even fun workshops!
To create my page background I added strips of old book pages randomly over the page -my page was already pink from using up some paint from another creation!!
I then added texture paste through a 12 x 12 stencil to create the squares.
Once that was dry - or almost dry because I get impatient and just want to start on the next process - I used several colours of water soluble wax pencils to colour the squares randomly then spritzed with water and rubbed in with my finger.
I wanted the squares to have a shadowy look so I used more of the wax pastels in black and browns and drew borders around each square, spritzed again and used my trusty finger again!
To add a bit more depth I used a couple of Kaisercraft texture stamps with archival ink to add the graffiti look lettering and splodges!
Finally I fussy cut the copic coloured image and adhered to the page and added a bit of charcoal pencil and black wax pastel to the image to blend her into the page.
Finally added the "chill out" stickers and the page is done!!
Love how this turned out!!!
Stay tuned to this blog for more DT inspiration and also check out our current challenge for a chance to win some images from the store!!
Happy crafting!

Inspiration Post

Hi everyone...Genny here with my inspiration post. I have to say to find something from SLS that inspires me is very easy. I just love everything. As you get to know me..goodness help will soon come to recognise what I really love. Skulls, Owls, Cats tend to feature alot and I can get very excited about them. So when I saw this great Candy Skull, I just had to do it. I decided to keep to a very small and muted (for me) I stuck to  shades of orange with green extras. I love to pick say 4 shades of 1 colour and just to see what it turns out like. I coloured the skull with my promarkers, cut it out and mounted it onto some black card. It is now on the wall in my parlour, alongside other skulls from SLS. I have to say it does surprise strangers to my house..but they always come round to loving what I do..I also have a collection of skulls that I have painted myself plus lots of ornaments of Skulls, including one from Transylvania. Why not take a look at all the skulls that are available from SLS.
One of the things that I love, being part of the DT is seeing all the fabulous creations that the others come up with. And of course I love seeing all your creations that you enter into the challenge. A new challenge is due to begin I hope that you will all come along and join in the fun. So until next time..take care and happy crafting.

Inspiration from Susan R

Hi Susan R here

Just thought I would share a journal page today...

This page is inspired by 'Mexico' so I had to use DOTD images.
 I have previously used these on cards - I decided I had to use them again!
The sugar skull image uses the spotlighting technique - just colouring certain areas with Promarkers. I coloured the whole of Dancing Skeletons 2 and Dancing Skeletons with Promarkers.

The first layer on my pages was formed using Ken Oliver Color Burst water colours.

I then added the various images plus some Mexican cutouts - cacti, guitars, chillies and sombreros - found on the internet. I painted the whole lot with Mod Podge.

Sal has now set up a proper website for her images (although the etsy with still be open) Find all her images here

Hope to see your makes in the next challenge starting on the 20th!

Happy Crafting!!

Why So Serious?

Hi everyone, Judy here. This is my inspirational art journal page for May.  Had lots of fun playing in my art journal book. The background of my page is a gelli print that I added some stenciled circles to. 

The image I used from SLS Lines is one of my favourites called  Mad Court Jestor and can be found in the SLS Lines Esty shop here. I coloured my image with Copics and a charcoal pencil.  I used molding paste and a stencil around the image.  The molding paste was coloured gold using PanPastels.  I used a stencil for the  large wording and a Dymo for the "Have Fun". 

Don't forget out current  Halloween challenge, there is still time to join the fun. Remember there is a new challenge on the 20th of every month.

Inspiration from Susan R

Hi Susan R here

Just a reminder that Challenge #19 is still running...
as it's halfway to Halloween!

My original make used this pumpkin image Pumpkin Patch and I used it to make an easel card.

I was inspired by several poems I saw on the internet and put these lines together...

Anyway - I have now made a couple of ATCs...using snippets of card from my stash, some SU stamps and Stazon, some bat confetti and a little doodling with a fineliner.

This first one uses the same pumpkin image from SLSLines, coloured with Promarkers - 

My second ATC  shows what happens after eating the pumpkin pie...

This image is Rainbow barf

Marie-Antoinette is in the "galerie des glaces"...

... or she is not !

Hi everyone,
This is Titbelsoeur today sharing a gothic Marie-Antoinette with you

Digital timbre goth Marie Antoinette avec des crânes et des fleurs dans la ruche cheveux digistamp et coloriage de lignes de SLS

The background was "gelli-plated" with black acrylic paint, I used foam stamps from my stash to add texture. And I used a page of a dictionary that I had "resist gelli-plated" to fill some frames.
The image is colored with Promarkers, I have deliberately colored the lady with grey and lilac to emphasize her macabre style.

Have a great crafting day !
