Tutorial using Ranger enamel accents and Kaszazz Alcohol ink art markers

Grab a sheet of transparency or your plastic Kraft Mat and squeeze out a few drops of your chosen enamel accents, in different sizes.
Allow to dry and then colour with your Alcohol ink markers.

When the colour is dry to touch you can pick your little pearly accents off the sheet with a paper piercer or tweezers and adhere to your projects with a dot of glossy accents.

Voila! Instant coloured pearl accents!!

You can also try this with Glossy accents. As it dries clear, your coloured accents will probably be more pronounced.

Jot Magazine mini challenge!!!


Just in time for another Jot Magazine blog challenge. This was a mini challenge with the theme THE GREATEST VIEW. I chose a recent pic. of my 7 year old son, sleeping. He looked so peaceful and I couldn’t believe how big he looked. However, even though he was peaceful then, later on in the night, he would be in my room, as he has been doing for the past week, due to bad dreams. We have moved again recently, he has his own room again, and has been watching Harry Potter movies and playing Harry Potter on the playstation. We have had to put a stop to these things for awhile, to see if his imagination can slow down!!! And we might all get some sleep.

I decided it was high time I started using up some of the FREE papers and stamp sets I have received with magazines. I give a lot of them away, but some I just can’t part with. I have a lot of stash in storage at the moment, so now is the perfect time to use what I have!!!! And then, I don’t feel guilty about using a few BRAND NEW products aswell.
Other materials used were: KASZAZZ-card stock, Art Markers, Distress inks, Enamel accents, buttons and rub ons. BELLA- journal spots. A. CRAFTS patterned paper. CAROLEE'S ADORN IT alphas. HEIDI SWAPP- plastic alphabet. Hand stitching and staples.

I remembered my Ranger, enamel accents I have had in my stash for quite awhile, and have never really given them much attention. I was just looking for some subtle little accents to compliment my page, and the white enamel dots worked perfectly.

My next post will show you how to make your own coloured pearl accents using this great liquid!!!

Playing with Kaszazz Alcohol Ink Art Markers

Have only just got my hands on these, but Kaszazz have had them for awhile now. I was trying to resist the temptation. I just purchased a small pack and have started to play. (There are 72 colours in total.)
If you watch here, Dannielle has given a quick overview on these fab markers!

Playing along with Jot Magazine!!

Mood Board 10- Jot Magazine challenge
Ok, so I discovered this cool online magazine a little while ago, probably via Instagram or Pinterest!! Have been keeping my eye on it, it's fabulous and run by the talented Kim Archer! We moved house again!!!! at the weekend and I was feeling like some much needed Scrap therapy. The mood board challenge was perfect, and totally outside my comfort zone using green???? My daughter performed with her school in THE BEAT, at the Darwin Entertainment Centre recently, and I was disappointed to find out I couldn't take any pics inside. I was so glad when I found some selfies on her Ipad, she took before each performance! She danced when she was very young and has had a few years off, she looked so gorgeous and graceful on the stage, and so grown up, (10 yrs now), I had to record the memory.
So here's the mood board:

And here's my take on the sketch:

I really love the way it turned out, especially the bright pop of yellow with the Heidi Swapp colour pop papers. I also used these products:
Kaiser base coat paper, pearls and blooms
American Crafts papers , Dear Lizzy brads & Amy Tangerine die cuts & alpha stickers
Simple Stories PL cards
Kaszazz_ oatmeal cardstock & gesso, Ezy press and lace border die
Prima alphas
Heidi Swapp Buzz words
I saw a hint on Pinterest recently using white paint or gesso and a pencil with an eraser on  the end to paint dots, so that is what I did on my oatmeal banners!!

TFL, and thanks for a great challenge Jot girls!!!!
