Art-journal page Make Memories by Elena + VIDEO

Hello and welcome to the Bad Girls Couture blog.
DT Elena here today sharing art-journal spread I’ve created using the incredible products by Bad Girls.
First of all, I created a textured background with Molding Paste.
I used  for background paints  Bad & Tatted  and  Distortion 
You can always use the most ordinary things in your projects. For example, I took some dried leaves and stuck them with Matte Gel.
I wanted to make the leaves more textured, so I put Glass Bead Gel on them.
With the help of my favorite colors of paints, I painted the cutting and chipboard: Torrid, Guild Trip, C-Note 
At the end I always add a splash of paint Fallen Angel
.
Hope you like and I have video for you to watch if you would like to see my process.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Hugs, Elena.

ALTERED BOTTLE by Elena

Hello dear friends!
Today i’m with a new Mixed Media project.
I was inspired by the sophistication of ancient statues.
 And I wanted to make an object reminiscent of that era.
Confess I never liked decorating bottles, and this time I was pretty skeptical.
However, the result that came out thanks to the chipboard exceeded all my expectations!
I got great satisfaction from both the process and the result!
Now I urgently need bottles of all sizes and shapes because I just fell in love with this format!
First, I primed the bottle with Premium White Gesso and stuck the chip:Checkerboard Panel
I wet the chipboard with water so it wouldn’t break and stuck it to the bottle.
Then I painted it with Bad Girls Couture paints. I used these shades: Make it rain и Last Sin
If you look closely you will notice a lot of gears of different sizes under the main composition.
Since they are painted to match the bottle, they are difficult to immediately notice.
However, they add volume and layering to my composition.
I used three sets of gears.:
One of the main decorations – chip Crown.
 I painted it with paints:
In the same colors I painted the Clock Face Frame and covered it with Glossy Accents by Ranger.
And additionally a little tinted alcohol ink
I took this lovely little key off one of the paint cans.
To add flicker to my work I tinted with wax
None of my work is complete without toppings.
I glued beads and glitter with Clear Gesso
I have made with the products by Bad Girls Couture:
I shall be delighted if you like my work and inspire you to create your own unique bottles.
Don’t be afraid to try something new and come back to topics you didn’t like before!
Life is full of amazing discoveries, let them fill your life!
Love, Elena!

Art-journal page Wonderland by Elena

Hello!

Autumn is my favorite time of the year, magical .. Fresh cool air, warm light of windows, nature incredible colors and sun rays illuminating this splendor.

And all of this inspired me. I created a page in my “COBBLESTONE LANE” Art Journal.

To make the background I used Haute Mess Paints.

I chose both bright and delicate shades. I wanted to combine them together for the best result.

To make a dark background, I painted Natural Cotton Canvas Page  with Bad & Tatted and then  Make it rain

I added paper cutting, hand-made flowers, metal key and photo of girls-caterpillars. Finally I added  paint splashes. The last one was the inscription.

 I have made with the products by Bad Girls Couture.

Art-journal page Schoolgirl by Elena + VIDEO

Hello everybody! I have a school  art journal page I created using the black cardstock page.
I like working with a black background. All colors look brighter and more contrast on it!
My children continue to study, my son is at University and my daughter is at school.
So I chose this school theme for my page.

 In the video you can see the whole process of creating this page:

I used different scraps of paper, frames, flower and butterfly, which remained after the creation of other projects! I do not throw anything away and love to use such sets for new works!

Used this palette:

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!

Art-journal page Retrospective by Elena

Hello dear friends!
Today I’m with a new Mixed Media project – and it’s again Art-journal page.
I came up with a little story that this page illustrates.
“The courtyard was a garden of Eden Paradise. They were like Adam and eve, and gave the names of flowers, herbs, and stray cats.
Youth kicked out of Paradise and scattered across the universe, leaving vague memories of happy childhood games.
Year and miles separated them, then to bring together and never separate.”
It seems to me – it is a great happiness – to find “your” person and live a long and happy life with him!
Hope you like and I have video for you to watch if you would like to see my process.

Canvas So sweet by Elena Martynova

Hello everyone! Today I have prepared little canvas for you inspiration.

I love to decorate canvases, and this time I decided to decorate it from the wrong side.

Thanks to the wooden frame there is an additional volume that can be interesting to use.

To begin with, I painted the frame on all sides with two colors:Mannequin &  Plastic Angel

   I painted twigs of chipboard by 2Crafty with two shades of green:C-Note & Million Dollar Baby

When the frame was dry, I applied a texture paste and sprinkled with white glitter.

 I painted the background chip with hearts with paint Naked and painted hearts with Couture Pink. After drying, apply the Glass Bead Gel on the hearts.

 I added a little stamping and began to collect the composition of flowers, chipboard and cut pictures.

Added title and some different toppings, which are glued to the Gel Medium.

That’s what I got as a result:

 I used 2Crafty products:

I hope you enjoyed it and were able to find here something useful for yourself! Thank you for stopping by! Happy crafting, Elena!

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!
