Hello, Bad Girlies. Donna here with a new project to share. I added another altered page to my PaperDoll Palace Canvas Art Journal and I hope you like it.
I created a shabby chic altered journal page with a beautifully textured background. I first brushed some Gesso over the surface before I added texture using a stencil and the Haute Mess Molding Paste. Once dried, I brushed Drop dead gorgeous and Couture Pink over.
Using another brush, I diluted Grunge with a bit of water and splattered over. I wiped off a little bit of the excess.
After everything has dried, I started embellishing with papers, die cuts, flourishes etc from the Ladylike collection from Kaisercraft.
Here is the process video I prepared for you to watch. I hope you like my art journal page as much as I do.
Thanks for dropping by and see you in my next post!
Happy Saturday Y’all!
Today I’m bringing a fun mixed media project so break out all the things!
I started off with an unfinished wooden pumpkin ornament and I applied a coat of Haute Mess white gesso. Then I applied Molding Paste through a stencil and allowed it to dry before applying a series of color washes in two amazing Haute Mess pink colors, “Couture Pink” and “Sweet Candy Kisses”.
I couldn’t leave good enough alone so I flicked a bit of diluted torrid to the still wet paint and allowed it to bleed into the design. Next I applied Haute Mess glass bead gel and then rubbed on some gold metallic.
Once all the paints were dry I glued all my awesome emblishements on and added some glitters with some Haute Mess Matte Gel Medium.
It sounds like a lot but it really was a quick, fun project!
I hope you are inspired to make something beautiful today!
Happy Monday girlies!!
So I have been patiently waiting to use this beautiful transparency page in my Haute Mess Cobble Stone Lane Journal and today is the day y’all!! I hope you are loving it as much as I am! I made you a little video to walk you through the process but first take a peek at the pics.
I used lots of cut out layers from old books and some tulle scraps as well as one of my favorite new A Vintage Girl stamps to stamp the corset.
This page is also heavy on texture with lots of molding paste, glass bead gel and glitter!
Now y’all hop on over to the link below and catch that process video for more details!
And thanks for stopping by today! Now go make something beautiful!

Happy Friday girlies!!
Today I’m mixing things up with some vintage sheet music, a tag, some string and fun embellishments. And of coarse the yummy Haute Mess mediums and acrylic paints.
I started out by using the Matte Gel to apply the sheet music on to my Cobble Stone Lane Haute Mess Journal. Then I smeared on some gold crackle medium I had in my art stash and allowed it to dry well. As that was drying I moved on to my tag.
For the tag I wrapped some twine around the tag and then smeared it with a generous amount of molding paste and allowed it to dry well. You can use a heat tool to speed the drying process up a bit. Once dried I applied some watered down acrylic “Dive Bar” paint.
I then applied the tag as well as my other embellishments on to the page. I painted the ribbon flower with the same watered down “Dive Bar” paint and then painted the center stone with “Drop Dead Gorgeous” as well as doing some dry brushing along the edges of the flower.
I added some Haute Mess Glass Bead Gel and allowed to dry to various places on the page. Next I applied some watered down “Drop Dead Gorgeous” just under the embellishments and added some paint splatters of watered down “Torrid” and “Million Dollar Baby“.
I finished it off with a Tim Holtz paper doll die cut, some title stickers and a metallic gold rub.
Thanks for stoping by today! Now y’all go make something beautiful this weekend!
Happy Tuesday girls!! Ready to get junqie?! So today I’m in my Haute Mess Cobblestone Lane mixed media journal showing you some more ways to incorporate found junk in your journal and make it part of your art work!
For this page, I used some paper packing mesh as well as some old silk flowers I had hanging around. I’m telling you…you can throw just about anything that will fit on a page, cover it in molding paste and texture and it’s beautiful! Art journaling is so much fun when you just look around and this about the possibilities around you!
I’ve made a process video to show you how this page came together but long story short, I just slathered on a bunch of Haute Mess Molding paste under and over that paper packing mesh and used that as my starting point then added the flowers in the same way.
I waited for it to dry then white washed it a bit with “Fallen Angel” Haute Mess Acrylic and once that dried I gave the whole page a coat of Haute Mess clear gesso to prepare if for some color.
For the color I dabbed on some “Make it Rain” Haute Mess Acrylic paint and blended it well with some water.
I applied glass bead gel for texture and added some metallic touches with a rub of gold acrylic. Then I added some Matte Gel to the areas where I wanted to apply the glitter to, sprinkled the glitter and pressed it in well.
I finished the whole thing off with my photo, butterfly embellishments and title stickers.

It really was a fun page. The Molding paste & glass bead gel are my favorite products so I always have a ball and love the results when I use them on a page or project! I hope this encourages you to go find some junk and make it into some fabulous art today!
Hello, Bad Girlies! It’s Donna here back with a new project to share. I made a scrapbook layout with a simple mixed media background using some Haute Mess acrylic paints and molding paste.
To create the mixed media background, I simply splatter watered-down First Crush, X-rated and Drop Dead Gorgeous acrylic paints. Then I used a stencil to add texture with molding paste.
The theme of my layout is about my love of scrapbooking. So I printed some recent layouts from the various companies and clubs I design/create for. I used a paper twine to hang the photos.
Used stickers and die cuts to embellish the layout mounted with some foam tape for dimension.
Totally love how this turned out. The Crafternoon collection from Kaisercraft is so perfect to what I had in mind for my project today.
That’s all for today and I hope you liked my scrapbook layout idea and it inspired you to be creative today as well.
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:
I have made with the incredible products by Bad Girls Couture.
Well that is all from me today. I do hope that you have enjoyed my project .
Stay tuned for more wonderful inspiration from the design team tomorrow.
Until next time take care and happy crafting.

Ok, I admit that last time I blogged I was supposed to give you a real repurpose and I didn’t really do that. Today I’m repurposing an old sign I had in my garage that I wan’t loving…one from the Dollar Tree at that and making it into something that I love now and will happily hang on my door!
First I removed all the elements before I began painting it. (You can see the before and the process in the video below). I made it very classic and kinda farmhouse-ish by gessoing it first then giving it a crisp coat of of “Fallen Angel” Haute Mess acrylic paint. Then using a ruler I lightly drew some pencil lines to make it look like wooden boards. I came back over the lines with “Grunge” Haute Mess acrylic paint and a fine brush, making sort of rough and imperfect lines. Next I used foam letter stamps and using the same “Grunge” paint I stamped the word “Thanks” on to the top burlap section of the sign. I then freehand painted the word “Thanks” in the Haute Mess “Bad and Tatted” acrylic paint. Finally I glued it all back together and distressed the edges with some black paint. I added a black letter “S” that I found at the craft store to personalize it for our family. It’s the perfect timeless addition to our home that I know we will use year after year now!
Thanks for joining us today!
