Be Your Own Hero

Hey there everyone! I have a brand new #TexturalTuesdays project up over at Ellen Hutson and the CLASSroom today with an Art Journal page called “Be Your Own Hero”. I’m kind of an art journal novice, but I really want to use it as a tool to get more in touch with myself, my thoughts, my stress…all of it. It won’t all be pretty. And those pages will be just for me. But this page? I’m sharing with you. And how I went about creating it. Mixed media should not be rocket science, my friends.

I’m sharing a sneak peek, as usual. I really want you to go to the CLASSroom and checkout my process. See if this is something that you would also do.  Maybe I’ll do a video next time, if you all think it would be helpful. But I want to take the frustration out of creating. I want YOU all to Be YOUR Own Hero. I’m trying to be mine. (I’m a work in progress.)

So, here’s a little peek:

It’s very important that you put your fear away. Fear will just hold you back. Create from your heart. No matter what it is. You don’t have to show anyone what you make when you art journal. I’ve been forgetting that. This process is solely for you and you alone. It can be as messy as you want it or as pretty as you want it. Write as much as you want or as little as you want.

But be you. It’s your thoughts. Your feelings. Your inner turmoil. Or complete happiness. Let it all come up. Allow the color to reflect how you feel.

Be you. And Be Your Own Hero. Save yourself.

The supplies I have listed below are affiliate links from Ellen Hutson.com that I used in my project.  All of the products were purchased by me with the exception of those with an asterisk.

First Shaker Card

Hi everyone! Wow…busy week. Hope you’re all doing really great. :) I’m super excited to be sharing my First Shaker card tutorial on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today.

The 3D Foam Creative Sheets make it so, so, sooo super easy to create a custom die cut for your exact shape/frame/whatever. Kimberly Crawford has a video on YouTube using the 3D Foam Creative Sheets for you people that like to hear someone tell you what to do. She’s really quite fabulous.  So using her helpful video and my lame brain (haha!), I made the following card:

The shaker portion AND the rosettes are all included in my First Shaker card tutorial on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog.

I hope you’ll check it out. I have a feeling I’ll need to make more to get the real hang if it, though, as everyone else seems to make them look so easy. :)

 

Bloom Girl Collage Canvas

Happy Monday!! I’m so excited to bring you a brand new project on the Bloom Girls Design Team blog . I made a Bloom Girl collage canvas featuring Paige. There is a step-by-step tutorial on the blog showing how to create it, too.

Here is how the canvas turned out:

Sometimes I like taking the “more is more” approach and sometimes I like taking the “less is more” approach. This one was very middle of the road.  I wanted the focus to be on her face, the flowers, and the coffee cup. Using the Bloom Girls products by Jamie Dougherty gives you a lot of creative freedom. And with collages, canvases, mixed media projects, and cards it’s all very easy. This canvas is perfectly sized at 5″ x 7″.

Be certain to stop by the blog to get the steps on how I made my Bloom Girl Collage Canvas , to see a few close-ups, and the full product list, too.

Wishing you all a WONDERFUL week!

Gardenia Bloom Girl

Hi everyone! Happy New Year! :) I have a brand spankin’ new post featuring the Gardenia Bloom Girl on the Bloom Girls Design Team Blog. For today’s post, I’m using one of my very favorite techniques to create the background using Gelatos®. So, if you have hopped to my blog for the Seasons Givings Blog Hop (the post below this one) today’s post for the Bloom Girls features a technique to learn in case YOU are the lucky winner. :)

I love this stamp. If you’re into making cards, layouts, art journals, or canvases the Gardenia Bloom Girl is a wonderful size. You can use the entire length of it for a canvas, art journal or layout. OR…just pick a smaller portion to stamp (like her beautiful face!) for a card. The card that I made is a standard A2 size. (4 ¼ x 5 ½”)

Here is a (very generous) sneak peek of this beauty:

LisaAdametz-Gardenia-Create-2I really hope that you’ll pop on over to see how this technique is done. I have a YouTube video showing how I made a similar background on my YouTube channel that is shown on the blog post as well. ALL of my videos can be found under the yellow header on the right “Follow Me On:” and clicking the YouTube icon.

Enjoy the card and I’ll see you back here soon!

**Don’t forget I’ll be announcing the winner of the giveaway in January 8th.**

 

Bloom Girls Tag

Hi crafty friends! I hope that you’re all doing awesome this Wednesday. :) I have a post up on the Bloom Girls Design Team blog today featuring a Tag I made. I really ventured way, way out of my comfort zone on this one. Way. Hahhah!!

Whenever I use my Bloom Girls stamps I always try to think of new ways to use them and this was definitely a new way…for ME! I’m not a Copic colorer (I think that’s a word). In fact, I sold almost ALL of my Copic markers, since I mostly use my beloved Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Stamper’s Big Brush Pens for almost everything. Those or my Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils. I’m just not an alcohol marker kinda gal. Actually, all that blending? Scary stuff. Heebie-jeebies! But, I decided that with the tag I was going to make that I would use the 25 or so (maybe less) markers that I have and USE THEM!!

Here’s a peek at what I made. As always, I would love for you to please visit the Bloom Girls Design Team Blog to see the full reveal. :)

I pretty much love this Bloom Girls Tag. I really do. And it serves as a VERY important reminder to ALL of us in these crazy times… “Just Breathe”.

Enjoy the rest of your week and I hope to see you all on the UStream!
