Lucky is a State of Mind

Ok, Ok, so this isn’t a real repurpose…but I had an idea and I rolled with it so bear with me!  LOL!

This page is done with Tim Holtz photos and paper dolls but it could totally be done with repurposed old photos!  So there is my repurpose!  See…I redeemed myself!  LOL!   Anyway, let me fill you in on my thought process behind this page and how I made it happen.

I’ve had a lot on my mind lately and with the balance of life and juggling different hats so when I came across this phrase “lucky is a state of mind” I had the perfect idea for it.  I decided what if I showed my state of mind and what’s on it.  What if I could hedge back my little head and show you all that things bouncing around in it.

I started by diluting some “hippie in high heals” Haute Mess acrylic paint and making an abstract poof like shape on the black page of Cobble Stone Lane journal.  While it was still some what wet I added some “make it rain” acrylic paint and continued to dab it with water to blend it a bit.  Then I blended in a bit of diluted “Torrid” acrylic paint just at the lower left corner of the poof and made some shading.

As it dried I added some Haute Mess glass bead gel to random areas then dripped some Haute Mess “naked” acrylic paint in as well as a bit of gold metallic from my stash.  Next I took a plastic gift card and dipped it in a bit of “bad and tatted” acrylic paint and sort of stamped it at different angles to form the design in the corner.  Finally, I  rubbed the raised glass bead areas with the same metallic gold I used earlier.

Lastly, I applied all my Tim Holtz photos and paper dolls (using pop dots) around the title sticker.

I hope this inspires you to get your paints out and get creative with some old (or reproduction) photos!

‘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!

Make and Create with Lisa Amiet

Hello Bad Girls!
It’s Lisa here today to share some more inspiration with you.
I have an Art Journal page that I have created.

I have started with a plain card page from my
‘Park Ave Penthouse Journal’

I have first given it a coat of my ‘Haute Mess Clear Gesso’, to seal my page.

I then gave areas a rough coating of my
‘Haute Mess White Gesso’

I have then used my ‘Haute Mess Acrylic Paint – Make it Rain’,
mixed with some water to make it flow on my page.

Next, I have added some ‘Haute Mess Acrylic Paint – Last Sin’,
again mixed with water.

I have then used a stencil and my ‘Haute Mess Molding Paste’,
to add some dimension.

I have then used some stamps and word stickers to add more depth and dimension to my page.

I really love those blue tones!
I hope you like it too.

Until next time!
Lisa

‘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!
