Winter Wonderland - DecoArt Challenge

Real fine examples that the Design Team has shown and very inspiring.

Here is my suggestion for Winter Wonderland challenge.

I started with gesso and then the blue color. I put white again and used sandpaste to the landscape and the stars. I clipped a mini city in black paper and got snow on the roofs. Some of the lines were marked with black ink. The background round about the snow and the stars got ice blue metallics. The small bears came to the landscape to create extra depth.

**ART*JOURNAL*JOURNEY* Winter Wonderland 01/2016

I have a lot to say goodbye to in the old year, so there is just a little gnome that is looking out. I look forward to start again in the new year.
Winter Wonderland is a really a good way to begin, so here is my proposal.

I have used stamps from Rubber Dance Art Stamps, 
the new outline letters are fun to doodle in.

Here is a picture of my workplace, I'm always messing a lot when I have started a project.*LOL

Thank you for visiting my blog, I wish you a good day

Happy New Year - Steampunk with DecoArt

As SanDee&amelie's Steampunk Challenges have the great honour and pleasure of having gained DecoArt as their "one and only" prize sponsor from now on, the whole team decided to put a special spotlight on some of the fabulous products from their wide range of media and paints.
So this month each DT member did not only use DecoArt paints and media on her DT project, but also introduces to you more closely one of the products she has used.

DecoArt Sponsor Badge

I've decided to use DecoArt media to transform one of my photos printed in black and white on my laserprinter to a photo that is looking aged and old.

DecoArt media Matte Medium, DecoArt media Fluid Acrylics Raw Umber and Quinacridone Gold.

Cut the picture in photo size, and then apply it the first layer of Matte Medium.
Let it dry

Then sand it with coarse sandpaper on the edges and slightly on some spots to make it look used and worn. Apply second layer of Matte Medium and let it dry.

Give it some wrinkles in the corners or where you think the photo might have got bruises and damages in its life.

Apply the third layer of Matte Medium, and let dry.

I've mixed Raw Umber and Quinacridone Gold with water to a thin solution, and in a brownish color that I think will make the photo look old.

Paint it with the your solution, and while still wet remove some of the paint with a soft cloth. Rub with your finger some of the paper to give it a worn texture. I've done this in the upper right corner, and painted the rubbed spot again.
Apply the forth layer of Matte medium, and let dry again.

Here you see it in whole with my last embellishments... and after the fifth layer of Matte Medium.

The four corners with their damages and injuries.

I've put the photo into my size A4 black journaling book.

I'm fond of distressing, and DecoArt's Fluid Acrylics are very ideal, because they dry quick, are translucent and together with DecoArt Matte Medium give a great matte finish, that I prefer for my projects.

When you participate in SanDee&amelie's Steampunk Challenges, you will have the opportunity to win this fabulous DecoArt media prize bundle

Happy New Year to you all.
I look forward to be seeing your project on SanDee&amelie's Steampunk Challenges.

Thank you for visiting my blog.
Hugs, Susan
