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!

Here is a process video you can watch:

Canvas Moon by Elena Martynova

Hello! Hello friends, Elena here with you today with my new inspiration!

 I decided to decorate the canvas using photo of me and my daughter and  chipboard by 2Crafty

and excellent products by Bad Girls Couture.

 For my project, I used wonderful sprays by Lindy’s  to create the background.

   To make the surface more voluminous and textured, I applied the Haute Mess – Molding Paste through a stencil

 I used a lot of different colors from Bad Girls Couture for coloring chipboard.

Mixed them together to get smooth color transitions.

Then covered it with embossing powder.

This made the colors brighter and added gloss.

I used chipboard Boho Floral Arrow.   I’m just in love with this wonderful design !!!

  I added Prima’s flowers as a base for the chipboard and creating layers and volume.

 I have made with this products by Bad Girls Couture.

Haute Mess Paints:

Enchanted Steampunk Wreath

Hey everyone and good Tuesday to ya!  Today I’m getting into some a little home decor DIYing!  This little steampunked beauty has been in my brain for a while so I’m thrilled to finally see it through.  I made a little process video for you so you can see the process as I made it.  Take a peek!

Basically I coated a Dollar Tree vine wreath with a coat of “Fallen Angel” Haute Mess paint and then accented the crevices with a bit of watered down paint in “Distortion” and “Million Dollar Baby”.  I then added Haute Mess Glass Bead Gel and allowed it to dry fully before rubbing on a bit of “Drama Queen” and then an acrylic metallic copper to accent.  Next I painted some chipboard pieces from A Vintage Girl as my accent pieces (rubbing with an acrylic metallic ) glued them on the wreath.  I also tucked in some reindeer moss in the cracks and secured with glue then finished it off with a ribbon for hanging.

Supplies Used:

Haute Mess Paint “C-Note”
Haute Mess Paint “Million Dollar Baby”
Haute Mess Paint “Distortion”
Haute Mess Paint “Fallen Angel
Haute Mess Glass Bead Gel
A Vintage Girl Chipboard
Metallic Copper Acrylic Paint
Reindeer Moss

Canvas My soul’s garden by Elena

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

I very rarely buy a finished canvas in the store.

As a rule, I make it myself from a box of chocolates and a piece of cloth.

I paint the Haute Mess White Gesso well and dry it.

In addition, I tried to get rid of another unnecessary thing.

It’s a little rake from the garden set. I use small shovels to transplant potted flowers,

but the rake is always not in demand.

 To start, I smeared the paint on the canvas.

Then applied texture paste and craquelure paste to create the effect of cracked plaster.

Painted rake: handle with Caution Tape  and Million Dollar Baby

and the rake with Kiss & Don’t Tell and Drop Dead Gorgeous

Decorated with flowers, sisal, chipboard and carved pictures.

I have then used my Haute Mess Glass Bead Gel, to add texture to the canvas.

I love my garden, when spring comes, I just love to plant plants and care for them!

I hope I was able to share with you my love of nature in this canvas!

Give Me Eyes to See

Hey girlies!  Happy Monday!  Today I’m gonna show y’all what I did with this wonderful tab page in my Haute Mess journal.  I’ve got a bit of a theme going in my journal right now so I’m rolling with it and continuing what I have going on and this is what is on my mind and on my heart so in my journal it goes!

 

Take a look at the process video for details on how I created this background using a technique I like to call “paint smushing”.

VIEW VIDEO HERE

It’s basically adding dashes of paint to your page or canvas then covering it with another paper or in this case I used a sheet of clear acetate so you could see the process take place.  You cover the paint with the second sheet of paper and smush it, smoothing it out so the paint can blend and come to the edges a bit.  Once you peel the paper up it makes a wonderful blended and textured design.

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.

“Seek Refuge In Him” Mixed Media Journal Spread

Hey Y’all!  For today’s Color Splash I thought I would show you how to spice up your gesso!  I used gesso as a background medium for a fun paint pulling technique I’ve been wanting to try and I thought you would enjoy it too!

I did a quick little process video to show you how I used the Haute Mess Gesso mixed with a bit of Metallic Mixing Medium and then layered with a coat of Floetrol as a base for this cool paint pulling technique.  Check it out and then see the pics for more details of how I pulled the entire spread together.

    

After I was finished with the feathers (as seen in the video) I dropped some gold metallic acrylic ink and allowed it all to dry well then rubbed a bit more gold over the top to highlight the texture a bit.  I then used the Bad & Tatted Haute Mess paint and freehanded the title as well as using some foam letter stamps to stamp the rest of the title.  I also made some freehand cross marks and then took a black ink pad and distressed both pages.  See the supply list below for a list of all supplies used.

Supplies Used:

Haute Mess Gesso
Haute Mess Acrylic Paints – Bad & Tatted, Torrid, First Crush, Caution Tape, Make it Rain, Kiss & Don’t Tell and Dive Bar

‘Don’t be Afraid to Edit’ Art Journal Page

Hello!

It’s Lisa here today to share an Art Journal Page with you.

I have started with a pink canvas page from my Park Ave Penthouse Journal.
I have given it a coat of ‘Clear Gesso’
then used ‘Molding Paste’ to stencil some patterns that I liked.

I have then adhered some gauze & tissue paper with my ‘Matte Gel’ Medium,
and then ‘Glass Bead Gel’ to add some texture.

I have then added some colour, using ‘Fallen Angel’, ‘Distortion’, ‘Broken Doll’,
‘C-Note’ and ‘Bad & Tatted’.
A little bit of stamping

I have added some tags, stapled on.
Some elements from my papers, Word Stickers and chipboard pieces.

Loving the stitching on this page!

I hope you like what I have created.
I will be back soon with some more to share with you!

Be Your Own Kind Of Beautiful Layout | Donna Espiritu

Hello, Bad Girls! Donna here for my first project this month of April. I’m gonna be sharing a simple mixed media scrapbook layout today using some Haute Mess Acrylic Paints, Mediums and a recycled item.

Collecting and cardboards, boxes, etc. are one of the things I like doing. So, basically, I’m a box hoarder lol! I use them in replacement of foam tapes when I need lots of them. For my project today, I used one not just to add a bit of dimension (height) to some elements in my layout but to add texture as well. If I’m not mistaken, this corrugated board is from an old toy box.

I painted the background with Couture Pink and Make It Rain. This is the first time I used Make It Rain and this combination is really pretty! Then, I did dry brushing as well as diluting the paints with a bit of water for a watercolor effect. I also splattered Bad and Tatted diluted in water as well.

I love how the dry brushed paints added texture as well.

The recycled corrugated board gave a bit of height to the elements in this layout.

I hope this one inspired you to be creative today! See you all in my next post and project.

Thanks for dropping by!

Happy crafting!

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.
