6×6 Halloween Card – Believe in Magic

Halloween is one of my most favourite times of the year. I love the warm and fiery colours of autumn and I love the gothic and spooky images we get to play with at this time of year.

For my IndigoBlu design team inspiration today I’ve created a 6×6 Halloween card that could also be sent as a birthday card to any fans of a certain young wizard that went to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry! Here’s a little bit of trivia for you, Harry would have turned 31 on July 31st 2017!

I hope you enjoy the card as much as I did creating it! If you liked this why not pop over to the IndigoBlu blog to see what my other teamies have created for you today! Click [HERE]

Live Your Life With…Zine Video Hop

A few months ago I invited 6 other YouTube mixed media artists to collaborate with me on the creation of a zine. If you’re not aware: a zine is a small publication, often or mostly self published, containing poems, fan literature or artwork. In our case it’s artwork.

I invited each of the artists to contribute a piece of art measuring 4″ x 6″ featuring just one word as it’s focal point. Once the artwork had been scanned or photographed I created the artwork file digitally and had the zine professionally printed. I then supplied each person with their own copy of the finished zine.

As I was the originator of the zine I created the front and back pages, which is the image you see above. To see how I created the pages you can watch my process video by clicking the YouTube link below. I have also included a gallery of images of all the other pages inside the zine in order that they appear.

You can also watch all the other artists process videos. Here’s the complete list of videos in the order they appear in the zine minus mine of course!

I hope that you enjoy this little video hop and enjoy watching the very different approaches to the creation of each page, which is as individual as the person creating them. Please show them some love by thumbing up each video and subscribing to their YouTube channels.

Mixed Media Art Tag – Use Your Wings

My project for today was to use up some of the Botanicals ephemera from a Tim Holtz set that I have in my stash and I was in the mood to create something a little bit vintage and a bit shabby chic…but not too much! So I decide to create a mixed media tag in my large tag journal.

To watch how I created this project from start to finish in real time simply click the image below.
