I really love the look of texture in all of my art. Whether it be added stitching, fabric scraps or layers of paint – I think texture gives an added element that really sets pieces apart from a one dimensional look. I like holding a piece in my hand and feeling all the different built up layers.
After a long chilly winter and spring it’s time for some warm weather, warm colours, flowers, holidays, picnics, outdoor activities…it is time for SUMMER. My project for today is all about summer. So let us dance in the sun and wear flowers in our hair…
Hi everyone, my name is Josefine and I’m very excited to be guest designing for Ranger today. I was thinking long and hard about the project that I wanted to create and share with you. I knew that I wanted to go crazy, so what better products to use than the ones from the Dylusions series?!
Hi there inky crafters! Are you excited to make a mess and try all the new stuff coming to Ranger? I know I am… Nicole here and I am excited to be sharing a little mixed media fun. This is my first time using Dylusions Paints on a canvas. I’m not trying to reinvent the wheel here, but maybe you have been thinking of trying these paints. Or perhaps you haven’t cracked one open in some time. Follow along as I learn how to use these paints… and get ready to make a mess!
Hi, it’s Victoria…I’m delighted to be here today, taking you through the way I put together this Dylusions Mixed Media Journaling Tag. I really like this quote by Mindy Kaling and have wanted to incorporate it into a journal spread or tag for a while. I knew that a vibrant colour scheme would suit it down to the ground, and that the Dylusions Ink Sprays and Paints would lend themselves to it perfectly – it never ceases to amaze me how the colours pop. I’ll often stencil over the ink sprays with the matching paint colours: you get some great effects. I loved making this tag – I hope it inspires you to try something this vibrant too!
Hi, it’s Victoria…I’m so pleased to be with you on the blog today, sharing this Dylusions journal tag that I made. I’ll often use a short quote or a few words or phrases from a poem into my work, however when I found this poem by Maya Angelou, I loved it so much I wanted to capture the whole thing. The large Dylusions journal tag was the perfect size to enable me to do this, and the ‘Jay’ silhouette complements the poem’s sentiment perfectly.
Hi, it’s Victoria…I’m delighted to be here on the Ranger Ink blog, sharing another page with you – this time in my Dylusions Square Journal. When I came across the last two lines in a poem by the American writer and author Mary Anne Radmacher, I knew I wanted to create something around them. A lion image seemed to be the perfect compliment to the first line in particular: ‘Courage doesn’t always roar’. For me, the beauty of Dylusions paints is the way in which I can use a blend of colours to create a unique background that reflects the colours in my chosen image.
Hi, it’s Victoria…I’m really pleased to be on the Ranger Ink Blog here with you today sharing this spread in my small Dylusions Creative Journal. I love the versatility of this design – you could make it many times over using a different paint palette, shapes and words…and a smaller version of it would look great on a tag.
Hi, it’s Victoria…I’m really looking forward to sharing my ‘Constellation’ journal page with you. There were a few things that influenced this page…I love using silhouettes – particularly when I’m working on a black background – I think they add real impact. This ‘Jay’ silhouette looked quite pensive, and having lost my dad unexpectedly to cancer at the end of last year, it really resonated with me. Dad’s star sign was Leo, so I put the constellation together with the beautiful words of an Eskimo Proverb and made this page. Dylusions paints look stunning when they’re used on the black journal and journaling tags – or a solid Black Marble painted background. If you haven’t experimented with them on a black surface yet, then I’d really recommend it. I hope this journal page inspires you to give it a go!
