Yes, I can ► Majo


Hello, Friends,

 I show you a little canvas that started out as an accident. I had covered it with different colors of ink, then disliked it and again partly covered it with gesso, now it fits.


I stamped the lady and the sentiment on tissue. After drying I added some more ink and distressed the edges.

 I added the loops and the twine and ready is another piece for the wall of my studio.

 I have used the following stamps:

Tina Walker Spiky Hair Scribble Girl 2

(Plate 1517)

 Yes, I Can by Cat Kerr

(Plate 1483)

 Have a good week, and stay safe.

 Luv ya









Hi everyone!

Today I have made this quick and easy card. Hope you like it.

First of all I made the background by using distress inks to make the rainbow colours by just brushing them straight onto my backing card. I didn't worry too much about blending!

 I stamped my Banksy image onto the card, and then splashed the card with water (with a fan brush) and dabbed it dry with tissue, giving the impression of rain.

I stamped the image again on white paper, as well as the sentiment onto card.

I fussy cut the image and stuck it onto the card so that the skin on the girl and the umbrella stayed white.  I cut up the sentiment and spaced it onto the card.

To finish the card off, I added some washy tape under the girl and drew a thin, black line round the edge, and mounted it onto a blank white card.

Stamps Used:

Banksy Rain Under Umbrella Girl 2 19486

The Greater your Storm 19781

Other Items Used:

Distress inks in Candied Apple, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Twisted Citron, Tumbled Glass, Wilted Violet

Versafine Clair Nocturn ink

Washy tape

Fine black liner

Fan brush

See you next time!

Card with rotation wheel - by Arwen

 Hey Lovelies ❤

Today I wanna share my newest card. It's a card with a rotation wheel (including four images)

First, I show it on this video:

Here is a summary of all 4 variations:

And that's the way, how I made it:

1.)I punch a smaller circle, a large circle with prongs, and a matching circle without prongs. In the small circle I punch a hole in the middle.

2.) I connect the small circle to the large jagged circle using a brad. The brad's head is pointing downwards. Then I glue 3D pads to the underside.

3.) I position my wheel on the back of my card and mark the section I want to punch out.

4.) Now I punch half a circle so that the jagged circle sticks out a bit.



 5.) Now I need a cutout for my rotary wheel. You can use punches - I did it by hand here.

6.) Now I can attach my rotating wheel to my card blank.

7.) I can now design my spinning wheel. You have to make sure that the pictures fit into the section of the card.

8.) When I've finished designing my circle and my card, I glue the circle to the serrated wheel. I stick 3D pads on the back of the card and glue these to my blank. The rotation wheel card is ready.

All stamps, I used:

- Batman

- Cat looking up

- Writing and scribble collage

- Writing chevron

- Scrabble alphabet small

- Fed up vintage Lady

- Brain

- Scribble heart

other stuff:

- black cardstock

- watercolor paper

- Staz on

- Distress reinker

- Distress oxide

- 3D pads

- Brad

- Spellbinders

See ya soon *mwah*

Follow Your Heart by Tracy Blackwolf

 Hello friends! here we have a simple but cute art tag...enjoy.

So for this I had a stencil made from thin wood- thanks neighbor-  and I laid it on top of the tag and sponged ink through it to get the background.
I just love the Kaleidacolor ink pads so much. Then I took some spray inks and sprayed them over the tag.
It does pool up a bit so I had to dab some off with a paper towel. I dryed that with my heat tool and then stamped the girl. because the gold spray is very heavy - lots of mica- I had to go over the girl with a black marker to make her darker. Then I painted her in with Twinkling H2O's.

Once she was dry, I used glossy accents for the heart to make it shiny and a bit dimensional. it doesn't show in the photos. I stamped the words and once the glossy accents was dry, I added some tiny blood drops confetti/glitter. I rubbed an ink pad in gray around the edges of the tag for a bit more distress.
I painted some ground shadow and that was it!  Fun, Sparkly, Easy.
I hope you enjoyed this quick art- stay crafty!

Banksy girl with heart     20399
Banksy Follow your heart   20391

Other Supplies:
#8 heavy stock tag
Glossy accents- Ranger

Not Yours by Tracy Blackwolf

 Hello all! 

Here is my blog post for this week- In light of what's going on I couldn't help but make this tag.

So, for this tag I used Brushos pigments. I just love them. I used three different reds and a yellow.

I sprinkled  a bit all down the left side with more going out at the top.

Then I spritzed water onto it but not too much. better to add if you need than try to take it off.

I let it soak in a bit then dried with the heat tool. I then stamped the clock upside down.
I then stamped finger lady and open mouth , fussy cut them and painted them with Twinkling H2O's.  I put Glossy Accents on her glasses so they are raised and shiny. Then I went and printed the words from my computer. I found them online. Printed on A transparency.
I took the screaming lady from my stash of paperdolls and attached her on the back. Side note: When you're not feeling super creative, stamp out some images and color/ paint them and put in a box or bag so you have things on hand. Helps when you need a quick card too. I then put the open mouth on the tag and was happy to call it done.
That's all there is to it. Hope you enjoy! Until next time~ stay arty!

Stamps Used: 
19468   Clock face
5766      Open mouth
19639    Striped leggings
14930   Screaming lady
2650     Finger lady

FACEBOOK FREAK by Fran Chalmers

Hi everyone!

Today I have made a tag. 

To make the background, I used a piece of the weird plastic foam you get as packing in Amazon deliveries! It made a great pad to use to put ink on and gave a great texture! I used distress inks in Spiced Marmalade, Tea Dye and Gathered Twigs.

 Once I was happy with that, I stamped the main image, and around it I stamped some background stamps for interest, then went round the outside of the tag with Gathered Twigs distress ink.

I stamped the main image on thick paper, coloured it and fussy cut it out.

I stamped the sentiment and cut it up, then stuck it onto the tag how I wanted it placed, having gone round the edges with Gathered Twigs.  I added an eyelet at the top of the tag, and put some ribbon through it to finish it off.

Hope you like it!

I was in my kitchen 18776
