Velvet Dot Pocket Page

Happy Monday everybody! I have a fun art journal spread I created using the Velvet Dot Pocket Page. Honestly, I wasn’t sure what I would do with this pocket page. I was completely stumped… And then I spotted a few manila tags and got an idea. I love when that happens!

To begin, I tucked some plastic packaging material behind the pocket so that the paint would not bleed through the back of the pocket page. Then I applied two coates of the X-rated Haute Mess Acrylic Paint. I applied heat to the pocket page using a heat gun and then I embellished the pocket using stickers and chipboard pieces from Pink Paislee’s  Indigo & Ivy collection. Love this collection!

And just for the record… this guy IS my happy place. I love him to pieces.

I painted the tags with the Last Sin and Naked Paint. Once both tags were dry, I embellished them with a few transparency die cuts and stickers. I used Creative Memories’ Lace Border Punch to punch the bottom of the tags to make them more feminine.

 

It was no accident that I scrapped the pocket page spread next to the other spread. The pages look nice side-by-side.

Thank you so much for visiting today. I hope you have a fantastic week!

 

Song Bird

Happy Monday y’all!!  I hope you are inspired today to create something beautiful!  I was inspired this week to create by this amazing sheet music page in my Haute Mess Cobblestone Lane Journal.

For this page I went to my scrap box and grabbed a few things to use that I thought would add interesting texture and layers and convey the feeling I was looking for.

My jumping off piece was this beautiful bird illustration and I just really went from there, gathering scraps of tissue paper and mesh that I liked.

I applied them down with some Haute Mess clear gesso and then secured the mesh down with some Haute Mess molding paste.  The background of the page also got a bit of a dry brushing of the “Naked” Haute Mess acrylic paint.  I added some extra texture and interest with some Haute Mess glass bead gel in some places and then gave the whole thing a light metallic rub.

The finishing touch was a sweet little die cut butterfly by Tim Holtz.

‘Note’ Art Journal page with Lisa Amiet + VIDEO

Hello bad girls!
It’s Lisa here today to share an Art Journal page that I have created in my
‘Park Ave Penthouse’ Journal

I have worked with one of the white canvas pages,
and this is what I came up with…

I have started with a coat of ‘Haute Mess White Gesso’, to seal my page.
I have then used a stencil and some ‘Haute Mess Molding Paste’ to stencil my page.

I have then used some Haute Mess Acrylic Paint in ‘Last Sin’,
mixed with some water, to help the flow.

Next, I have used some Haute Mess Acrylic Paint in ‘Make it Rain’, again mixed with some water.

I have then mixed some Haute Mess Acrylic Paints in ‘Make it Rain’ and ‘Bad & Tatted’,
to make my own darker greyer blue, and mixed it with water.

I then used a watered-down ‘Bad & Tatted’ Acrylic Paint for my last layer of colour.
I have then stamped away with blank ink and some of my fave stamps.

I have then pulled together some embellishments to help pull my page together.
I have built up my layers and added some Haute Mess ‘Glass Bead Gel’,
to random areas of my page.

To finish, I have used some Haute Mess Acrylic Paint in ‘Fallen Angel’,
to splatter over my finished page.

There is a full process video of the creation of this page that you can watch below.

Until next time!

Lisa

Watercolor Art Journal Page

Good morning!! I have a fun tutorial to share with you today. For today’s project, I decided to experiment a little with my acrylic paints to create a watercolor background using the Vintage Music Note Page. I must admit, I love, love, love how this layout turned out. It is sooooo freaking pretty. I can’t stop looking at it. And…I created a video so you can see, step-by-step how to apply this technique the next time you want to get your hands dirty.

Before I applied the paint, I covered the Vintage Music Note Journal Page with Clear Gesso. Once the gesso was completely dry, I mixed a tiny drop of acrylic paint with a teaspoon of water using three different colors of paint: Caution Tape, Sweet Candy Kisses and Drop Dead Gorgeous. Then I covered the background using all three paints, using a heat gun to dry each color one-by-one before adding the next color to prevent the colors from bleeding.

I especially love the stitched trim along the edges. It looks sooo nice with the watercolors and I didn’t even have to pull out my sewing machine.

I mixed the Molding Paste with a little of the Caution Tape to add stars in the background.

I used Pink Paislee’s Horizon collection to embellish this layout once the paint paint was completely dry!

Here it is! I just love it… I hope you will take a few minutes to watch this video I prepared for you.

Thanks so much for visiting today!

Breath Serenity Tab Page | Donna Espiritu

Hello, Bad Girlies! Donna here with a new project. I used the Tab Page in my Haute Mess Art Journal in PaperDoll Palace Pink Canvas to create a mixed media page.

I wanted to create a page about peacefulness or serenity. And the Morning Dew collection from Kaisercraft complements the Kiss & Don’t Tell color from the Bad Girls Couture Haute Mess acrylic paint selection.

I used a palette knife to cover the surface first with Fallen Angel and then Kiss & Don’t Tell after.

I used the Glass Bead Gel medium to add more texture.

After everything has dried, I started embellishing/decorating the page.

Here is a process video you can watch how this mixed media page came out to be.
Enjoy watching and may this spark some creativity in you today!

Thanks for dropping by and happy crafting!

Red, White and Blue Journal Page with Jen Matott

 

 

Hi, artsy friends!  I’m back with a Haute Mess Art journal canvas page  project and video.  I was inspired by our Independence Day celebrations.  The 4th of July holds special meaning for us here in the United States.  We celebrate our forefathers and the freedoms we hold dear.  As we continue to strive to be better and a country, we remember all those that fought in order to give us the freedoms we have.  It’s a patriotic holiday with lots of traditions that we share with family and friends.  So, I made a page that reflects our flag’s colors and feeling of unity.

 

In my tutorial video, you will see that I start by adding some Haute Mess Mixed Media White Gesso to the page.  I added the letter stencil over that using and sponge to dab Haute Mess Mixed Media Acrylic Paint in Bad Girl GaudyFallen Angel, and Make it Rain through it.  It created a sort of Ombre effect with the 3 colors.   I did the same with each color on a canvas banner piece.

I mixed the Haute Mess Mixed Media Molding Paste with Bad and Tatted Acrylic color. I put that through a stars stencil.   Once dry, I embellished the page with metal pieces, found objects and twine.

If you live in the USA, Happy Independence Day!

 

Maker’s Mind

Happy Monday y’all!  For today’s inspire me Monday, I’m working on my vintage comic book page in my Haute Mess Journal.

I had the idea to have it look as if it was exploding, exposing the inside of a toy maker’s mind.  So I got to work…splitting open the comic book paper, giving it a white wash and adding molding paste to the cardstock that was exposed under the comic book paper.

I then filled the center section with chipboard gears (these are from A Vintage Girl) that I added Haute Mess glass bead gel then painted and distressed with Haute Mess “Bad & Tatted”, “Distortion”, “C-Note” and “Kiss & Don’t” Tell paints.

I added Tim Holtz Paper Dolls and A Vintage Girl & Her Daughter Stickers for the title.

I also added some A Vintage Girl & Her Daughter Stickers to the bottom to carry the toy maker theme.

I then distressed the entire page with a black stamp pad.

You can see the entire process in this process video.  Check it out here!

 

Altered-art Light bulb and butterflies by Elena

Hello!!! Hello there lovely creative friends! Today I’d like to share with you my brand new inspiration – a mixed media altered-art with lovely amazing Bad Girls products!

I wanted to make an interesting and useful thing.

 As a basis, I took the box-heart. I screwed the wire to the light bulb.

I painted the bulb with white gesso, added some crackle paste and art stones .

The box and the chipboard was painted Haute Mess Paints  Bad & Tatted 

I attached a wire with a light bulb to the lid of the box with a glue gun and decorated with chipboard gears

Lost the box with candle and mint first colored paint, sanded and went a little pink paint

Made the bulb more bright and beautiful

Glued chipboard dial and hands by @2CraftyChipboard. On the lid I added flowers @Freetany_Flowers

The dial is decorated with fluttering butterflies from the new collection “Love of my life” by @lemoncraft.pl 💡Box, added a sticker from @7dotsstudio

 I have made with the products by Bad Girls Couture.

Create & Inspire Art Journal Page | Donna Espiritu

Hello, Bad Girls! Donna here with a new art journal page using the Tag Page in the Haute Mess Art Journal as well as some acrylic paints and mediums.

I started with stamping the art journal page and tags then splattering some acrylic paints (Sweet Candy Kissed, X-rated and Kiss & Don’t Tell) to the page and tags. Then I decorated using cut apart pieces from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad and stickers from Kaisercraft Scrap studio collection.  I used a stencil and the Haute Mess modeling paste as a last thought, to add more texture.

It’s a really easy and simple project and I love how this turned out. The colors and textures are pretty up close and in real life.

I hope you liked my post today and it inspired you to be creative!

Spring Market Art Journal Page

Hello all! It’s Lisa here today to share some inspiration with you.

I have an Art Journal spread, that I created to give me back the feel of Spring,
as it is starting cool down here now.

For this one, I have started with the polka dot half page and the black cardstock page behind it.
I wanted these pages to work together.

I have used my Haute Mess White Gesso & Molding Paste to my pages.

I have then added some colour using my Haute Mess Acrylic Paints in
‘X-Rated’, ‘Couture Pink’ & Million Dollar Baby’, and stencils.

I have then added in some scrapbooking elements that gave me that spring feeling 🙂

Lots of layers.

There is a full process video that you can watch
HERE.

 


I hope you like what I have created.
