‘New Leaf’ Art Journal Page

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

Here is the art journal page that I have created,
from my ‘Park Ave Penthouse’ Journal.

I have gone for a natural feel to this page.
I have started with a coat of ‘Haute Mess Clear Gesso’, to seal my page.

I have then used ‘Haute Mess White Gesso’ and a stencil to sponge through my alphabet.
I have then used ‘Haute Mess Acrylic Paints’ in both ‘Grunge’ and ‘C-note’ to stencil on to my page.

I have then added the leaf stencil and ‘Million Dollar Baby’ to stencil through on to my page.
I have then added a simple word sticker to finish.

I hope that you like what I have created.

Lisa

Choose Happiness Canvas with Lisa Amiet

Hello Bad Girls!
It’s Lisa here today to share some inspiration with you all!
I have a canvas that I have created
‘I Choose Happiness’

I have started with a canvas that I had laying around.
I have first sealed it with a coat of ‘Haute Mess Gesso’.

I have then used a stencil and some ‘Haute Mess Molding Paste’,
to stencil a pattern onto my canvas.

I have then added some colour using my ‘Haute Mess Acrylic Paints’ in
‘Drop Dead Gorgeous’, ‘Sweet Candy Kisses’ and ‘First Crush’.
I have added water to them to get a natural flow on my canvas.

I have then layered some papers, elements and die cuts in
co-ordinating colours to build up a focus for my canvas.

I hope that you like what I have created,
and that it inspires you to have a play today.

Lisa

One Little Piggy

Good morning! Nicole here with a really fun project! I picked up this little piggy from Target about a year ago since it was on the sales rack. I figured, I could alter it… make it pretty, but it sat on my desk for a year untouched until a few months ago I decided to add several coats of gesso on him. My thought was I’d be more motivated if I just got the process started. Know what I mean?

I added about 3 coats of gesso by the time I was done with the base. I wanted to make sure that none of the pink and black showed. Once the gesso was completely dry, I tore bits and pieces of pages from an old book and sealed it down on the piggy using Matted Gel.

I added a few stickers here and there. And then I sealed them down using some more Matte Gel Medium. I added a thick layer of gel to add some texture.

Once the gel was completely dry, I added a thin layer of the Caution Tape Haute Mess acrylic paint.

Once the paint was dry, I glued some buttons where the pig’s eyes should be. Then I added some Broken Doll Haute Mess acrylic paint to tone down the yellow a bit.

I put him aside for a few days to think about what else I wanted to do with him since I was out of idea, but I wasn’t quite happy with how he was turning out… A  few days later, I added some butterflies that I punched out from an old book. I glued down some cork hearts and gems. I added some word stickers and stamps in black.

Here he is! This piggy was a lot of work, but I am happy with the final project! He is sitting on my shelf again, looking prettier than ever.

A lot of details and thought went into this little guy. Here is a closer look at him.

 

 

Thanks for visiting today! Don’t forget to stop by the shop to see all of the gorgeous colors we have available in the Haute Mess Acrylic Paint Line. These paints are easy to work with and totally fun! Once you start playing with them, you won’t want to stop.

‘Artist?’ Art Journal Page by Lisa Amiet

 

Hello!! It’s Lisa here today to share my latest page from my

‘Park Ave Penthouse’ Journal.

‘Artist?’

I have started with one of my blank pages, this one is cardboard.
I have given it a coat of ‘Haute Mess White Gesso’ to start with.

I have then used my ‘Haute Mess Acrylic Paint – Last Sin’ to coat the page in a nice pale blue.
I have then used a stencil and some ‘Haute Mess Clear Gesso’ to add some texture.

I have then used a mandala stencil and my ‘Haute Mess Molding Paste’ to stencil the mandalas.

I have then added some more colour using ‘Haute Mess Acrylic Paints’ in ‘Last Sin’,
‘Make It Rain’, ‘Sweet Candy Kisses’ and ‘Bye Felicia’.

I have then added some more stenciling and stamping, along with some doodling by hand.
I hope you like what I have created!

Until next time!

Mixed Media Trinket Box + VIDEO

 

Hello Bad girls!
It’s Lisa here today to share a project with you.
I have created a Mixed Media Trinket Box,
using my favourite Haute Mess Mediums & Paints.

I have started with a simple cardboard trinket box from my $2 shop.
To start, I have added some lace around the edge of the lid and a chipboard frame to the centre,
with my Haute Mess Matte Gel Medium.

I have then coated it all in Haute Mess White Gesso.
I have adhered tissue paper and other elements with my Matte Gel Medium.
I have then used my Haute Mess Glass Bead Gel, to add texture to the box.

After more gesso, I have added some colour!
I have used my Haute Mess ‘Kiss & Don’t Tell’ Acrylic Paint.

I have then lightly brushed it with Haute Mess ‘Fallen Angel’ Acrylic Paint.

To finish I have lightly rubbed it with some metal wax.

You can watch the VIDEO below.
