Her Style was Sassy

with just a bit of attitude…  I asked the kids in class if any of them had a bit of attitude, they were coy and sweetly admitted to “just a little bit”. Darlings.

This is the Art Journal page we did, and we all loved using Distress Crayons. Here’s a quick overview if you would like to re-create this at home.
We primed the page with gesso first, and force dried to be sure there were no damp patches ( we will be adding embossing powder and you don’t want it to stick to your whole page)

Stamp the clock with clear embossing ink, add white powder and heat set.

Crayon on some colour and spray with water, blend with your fingers until the crayon is just “colour” and you can’t see your crayon strokes anymore. Add more water, or blot it off as you like. You can add and remove as much as you want. Really easy! Try different colours.

Allow to dry naturally, then swipe off the white embossing to reveal the clock.

Stamp some words, and flick with black paint.

I added the crayon to the texture paste to have a matching texture colour, then used this mixture on the wildflower stencil to add another layer to our page.

Add clock hands (cut with the diecut machine, yes, the kids cut their own) and finish off with a gem.


These are products I used – all available at The Scrapbook House

 Here’s another version – different colours.

Video Tutorial

My first video tutorial. Daniel is a great director, telling me where I need to look and that I HAVE to stop saying “um”. I think um, i said it, um about 50 times. Um. Very strange to see myself on video, but hopefully helpful to some who are looking for ideas and ‘how-to’s’.

Anyway, here it is… my first. For you to see.

The project is in store, doesn’t take very long to complete, then you can fill it up. We will be having a “Mini Album”night soon, where we can decorate a cover (maybe even like this) and then fill it. Would make a lovely gift.
