Acrylic Play

Morning everyone, thank you for popping in. I'm squeezing this post in before the children wake up. We are having a bbq today to celebrate my grandson's 16th birthday so it will soon be full on here, getting ready.  just recently I played with lots of the new acrylic substrates released by That's Crafty. Today I'm going to share a journal. It has 3 acrylic pages and the MDF front and back.   

The front page  


 Crackle medium, Finnabair melange Art Pebbles and Art Alchemy Mettalic Acrylic.


Page 1


Everything Art stamps, from Paper Artsy plus a sanscript stamp in the background. Dina Wakley Media Line, paints


Page two 

I used a paper first to cover the working of the other side. That's Crafty New stencil and Grunge Paste from that Paper Artsy. I used stencils and Archival Ink on the background. Sanded down the Grunge Paste to bring back the white which actually looked like Ivory once finished.

Next page

This one I painted, I have some steps to show the process.


In this one you can just see how I stamped the leafs from Sara Newman ESN20 and butterfly HP1203 both from Paper Artsy.

Fresco Acrylic Paint -Paper Artsy.

The background is filled with foil flakes and lastly paper from Prima.


Simple page using DecoArt plumb I drew the cat. I had to wait until this was dry (overnight) I then used That's Crafty Stencils and drew round them, like in the old days lol. Waited for these to dry and then filled it in with glazes from DecoArt. 

I used that's Crafty Stencils and Archival Ink to create Angels, added the wings and the hair is the flower stencil.
Back page
Well I had to didn't I, wouldn't be mine unless there was a girl.
I hope you enjoyed looking at this journal.
Take care and I'll see you soon

  6. This is gorgeous Debs. I saw these acrylic shapes on Hochanda the other day but couldn't decide which one to try first. I think I am getting drawn to the book ones though.
    Hope the 16th celebrations go well today.
