Brave and Beautiful Art Journal | Donna Espiritu

Hello, Bad Girlies! Donna here with a new project in my Haute Mess PaperDoll Palace Pink Canvas Art Journal.

 

First thing I did was brush the surface with gesso and then Fallen Angel diluted with a bit of water. I just wanted to cover the entire surface. Then I added a thin layer of Naked. Using a stencil and molding paste, I added more texture to random areas.

I wanted to try something new for today’s project. I’ve never done this kind of thing before and I know I need more practice. Ha! Instead of drawing directly to the background, I’ve drawn a face on to a piece of paper first and then cut it with my scissors. I adhered it to with gesso and a bit of clear glue.

I painted the face with Naked first and then Mannequin. Then I used Plastic Angel to paint the blushing cheeks and Bad & Tatted for the hair.

I used Prima Marketing’s Enchanted paper pad to embellish the page. I cut some squares/rectangles, doodled around the edges with a black pen. I also fussy cut some flowers to further decorate the page.

I added some Poetic Rose ephemera and stickers for the simple title of “Brave and beautiful”. I also brushed some Glass Bead Gel as a finishing touch.

I definitely need more practice drawing faces… or something like that ha! I was so scared to mess up painting the face and now I think it needed more shading… hmmm I didn’t mean to make it look like an Asian face lol but that’s how it turned out.

That’s all from me today. I hope you liked my project!

Thanks for dropping by and happy crafting,

Oh Snap Scrapbook Layout | Donna Espiritu

Hello, Bad Girls! Donna here back with a new project. I made a scrapbook layout for you today using some Haute Mess Mixed Media products.

I started with white cardstock as a background. I dry brushed the acrylic paints (Kiss & Don’t Tell, Drama Queen, Sweet Candy Kisses) and then splatted with diluted Bad & Tatted.

I did a lot of fussy cutting too from different papers in my CK Full Bloom April kit. I love the mixture of colors with a pop of black. The paints matched perfectly with the palette from the papers and embellishments I used.

I prepared a process video for you all and you can watch it by clicking HERE or the video below.

I hope you liked my project today.
