The Small Pieces Make The Big Picture - Art Journal Page


Hello Friends,
This is Bela Shah and today I am here with an art journal page which I m in love with.....
This journal page was all about expressing  and I played with little dark tones which I usually don't do in my projects....

So here I started using distress oxides in cracked pistachio, fossilized amber, spiced marmalade n peacock feathers..... I started putting colors here and there n made a page which was super colorful, bright and with all my favorite colors.... once this was dried i started stenciling the feathers with the same set of colors on my background.... I absolutely love the way oxides layer on each other and its magical.... once I was happy with the placement of the feathers i outlined them with a permanent marker... it gave amazing definition to my page.


I stenciled again with the same set of colors on to the blank spaces to add little more interest to my page . then i added water splatters to the feathers and the oxidization made the feather look different from the rest of the background....

with this I was totally satisfied with the way my page looked at this point.... Then only thing left to complete the page was the sentiment... i chose these two from the set that I had and i thought these fit perfectly to my theme....


                                        

I am super happy with the way this page has turned out.... I hope you all love it as much as I do....


Thank you so much for stopping by... Dont forget to leave a comment...I really love reading your thoughts...

Altered Sun Glasses & Case




Hello Friends,
This is Bela Shah and once again i m here with you all to share my favorite type of art that is Altered Art. I don't know why but there's an immense satisfaction to alter a piece of junk or waste  or a broken thing and give it a beautiful new look . The whole transformation process so so amazing that it has become my passion to alter anything I can get my hands on.... 

So this time its a broken sun glasses ... then i thought why not do the case too!!!!
I am in love with the way the colors pop and enhance the creation and gives a totally new look to the case and glasses.


For this first I applied black Gesso to the case and let it dry. Added texture with stencils using mixed media paste from Little Birdie Crafts and again dried it . then i started adhering the metal embellishments. I wanted to make it little girly that is  why I added flowers n leaves in my stash. some art stones from Prima. once i was happy with the composition then again covered everything in black gesso... after that i dry brushed white gesso as i wanted few highlights on my embellishments. I used finnabiars Opal magic paints to color my art work. sprayed few lindys sprays too. dry brished everything with gold to give it good highlight n neutral look...


After the sun glasses case was done it looked so beautiful that now i can use this as a clutch too !!! How cool is that !!!



For the sun Glasses I used few flowers small steampunk gears, art stones covering everything in black gesso and putting same colors and sprays which i used on case so that they compliment each other .....




I hope you like my this Mixed Media Altered Art as much as i loved creating it...Hope it inspires you to create something from a total waste to something very beautiful and unique.
thanks you for stopping by. Don't forget to leave love in form of comment. I really look forward to reading them and know your thoughts.

Love & Hugs

Happy New Dreams - Art journal



Hello Friends,
First of all let me thank each and everyone who took part in the positive vibes hop. Thank you so much for all the lovely comments and compliments and love that you have showered on my altered art... I m so touched by the gesture and i appreciate each and everyone who stopped by.

Today I m here with am Art Journal page ... I am so so happy with the way its turned out... super simple, super colorful and super Gorgeous..... so without further ado let me explain how I did this page. I first did the stenciling from the top left hand corner till the bottom right hand corner . I did the same step on other page by starting all the way from left hand corner till the bottom right corner.... u can play along any way you  like with any stencil you have...
I wanted dark teal and turquoise color where the texture is there and go very light where its plain. I started with turquoise then moved on to green n then lemon which faded to both the pages... dried it thoroughly.

I wanted a focal point so I used the dream-catcher die cut and added same colors in bold so that it stands out from the background. with dream catcher i thought these quotes are apt. Happy New Dreams... The distance between dreams and reality is action... and added a small feather stamp to balance out . Dreams and stars go hand in hand so stamped small cluster of stars around the dream catcher and around the quote... Done...




A simple yet beautiful art journal page is ready. I hope this post creatively inspires you all...
Thank you for stopping by.

Love & Hugs
Bela
