My Boys ...

Hi there,  
Natalie here sharing a page I created using Lindys Stamp Gang Sprays
from the September Color Challenge set. 
This is such a great combination and perfect for a Grungy Masculine Page
featuring my husband and my best friend!

I decided to use three colors from the set for my page:Greased Lightnin Green
Danny Zukos Denim
Sandra Dee Sepia

Here are a few simple steps to create this page…
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
I started with a line using a Black Stabilo pencil then added some Molding Paste with a stencil. Once dry, I started layering my colors, watering down a little as I went and spreading them with a brush.

As it dried, I could see the different layers of color in the paper

I then added some splatters in all three colors

Once dry, I added stamping to create more layers and dimension

I added some mesh tape & old rub ons along my horizon line

Coloured the Imaginarium Designs Chipboard with a combinations of Green & Blue, added some wood veneers and string and added a tag under my photo

And finished the page off with a few Imaginarium chevrons

I have filmed a video to show you how easy it is to create this page…
You can view it on the Lindys Stamp Gang YouTube Channel.


Tips

*Add water quickly after your spray – before it soaks in so that you can spread it around a little*Lindys Stamp Gang Sprays soak right into Imaginarium Chipboard because it’s porous, so dry it between coats to ensure you get the color that you are after.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day.

Tag ... You're it!

Hi there,

Today over on the Lindy's blog, I am sharing my first Video tutorial with
a sweet set of tags!

13567143_10208633393684961_7454857883836667563_n
I've used colours from the August Color Challenge set for my tags ... Nice & Bright ...
The Magicals are all from the Caribbean Crush Set ...Pineapple Paradise, Luscious Lime, Caribbean Blue, Mango Mania and Hibiscus Rose.
This is my absolute fave set too!
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Creating these tags was super simple.
I started with a light swipe of gesso over my tag just to seal the paper, then made a water wash of each Magical color, added two colors over the gesso, flicked on 3-4 colors with a brush and then allowed to dry.  The Imaginarium Designs Chipboard has also been lightly coated in gesso before being coated in color as well. A quick swipe of Light Molding Paste, a little stamping and some sweet embellishments.

I have filmed a video to showing how you can make this, you can watch it below on the Lindy's Stamp Gang YouTube Channel. (this is my first video - so go gentle on me)


Tip ... once your background color is on... dry before flicking on the next layers
just so they dont 'muddy' up.
Tip ... you may need to add a few layers of color to the gesso coated
chipboard to get some color intensity...
