Clock Theme Card-Imagine

Hello Makers!

Today I have a fun and quick card to share. This clock theme card was using Imagine's Java Walnut Ink and Metallic Gold Creative medium. I love how the metallic gold looks against that rich, earthly looking Java colored Walnut Ink. It really makes the clocks standout. Visit Imagine's blog to learn how to make this card.

Found Diamonds-Altered Bottle

I have altered yet another bottle. This time it's not a wine bottle. So the the other day I was cleaning out my kitchen cabinets; looking for expired food, trying to make room. I found this strange sweet liqueur bottle I used for cooking that I had for a hundred years. I have no idea what it was, but I sure did love the shape though. There was a tiny bit of liqueur left at the bottom, so I decided to clean it out and make something with it. Many of you know I am fond of zippers on bottles. So I made this found diamonds in a bottle. I used so many different things to make this project. I used tissue, book paper to decoupage, real zipper, glue, plaster, resin rhinestones, paper clay, epoxy clay, stamping, gesso, metallic wax, metal embellishments and the stopper is drawer pull knob. Well I hope you like my altered bottle.

Write Your Story-Journal Page-Imagine

Hello Makers,

I go through phases in life, where I am into certain shapes, patterns, techniques, items in art and I don't even know why. I have many right now; I am creating art with these obsessions. Yes, I usually several projects going on at a time and they vary the gamut; abstracts, clay, sculptures. I decided to act on two of those obsessions in an Art Journal Page. Asemic writing and abstract figures. Asemic writing is a wordless form of writing; it’s making words look real, but it’s not meant to be read. A very fine mark making tool and a medium is ideal for Asemic writing. I used Imagine’s irRESISTible Pico Embellisher for Asemic writing marks inside a silhouette stencil. For the background I used a combination of All-Purpose inks, Fireworks! Sprays and stenciled some patterns. To learn how to make this project, check out Imagine's blog for detailed instructions and images.
