I am happy to say that I completed a whole year of of the DLP (Documented Life Project) in 2014. I LOVED it. It brought me back to my scrapbooking days and incorporated mixed media story telling at the same time.
I am determined to keep it up this year!!! As a matter of fact I'm going to do the "new version" of DLP and keep do another version in a Moleskein to match my one from last year.
Okay...my other news...I have a NEW love!!!
Well it really isn't new, but some of the products are.
of products to play with.
NEW journal, new products = FUN!!!
I have long been in love with the DecoArt Traditions color Permanent Alizarin Crimson.
In LOVE I tell you!
Well....now I am in LOVE even more with the new Media line of Fluid Acrylics. I can't tell you how excited I was when I played with them. They are like a fine art paint but don't leave that sticky surface on your page. Not matt, not shiny....but somewhere in between.
Here is a little look at what I did with some of the products.
I think took just a few drops of the DecoArt Fluid Acrylics and a very wet brush and made a watercolor type wash over the page. It took so little paint to get a rich color.
Let's try that fluid acrylic with a stencil! I picked two of my two new stencil designs from StencilGirl Doodle It Dream Landscape and Doodle It Geometric Landscape and used a make-up sponge with the Quinacridone Violet to stencil bits and pieces of both stencils over the spread. Yes! I'll take a gallon of that color thank you!!!!!
I then added a few more colors of fluid acrylic on the page.
Let's try that Antiquing Cream! I really love how it gave an aged look to my paper and so easy to use. It even has a really great texture.
Last, but not least, I couldn't wait to play with the Liquid Glass!!!! It did not disappoint! Pictures just can't do it justice. I think it dried quicker than any other product like this that I have ever tried.
I thoroughly enjoyed playing with these products and am SO in love with the paint. I love the size of the smaller bottles too because it makes it easy to travel with which I'm going to do soon!
I tried a few more of the products on a page that
will be on StencilGirl Talk tomorrow.
Hope to see you there!
Of course, I'll be back here soon on my blog playing with the products a little more too!
