Colouring and having courage with Oak House Studio . . .

Hi everyone, Tracy here today sharing the first project that I created using 
Oak House Studio`s
I remember the day my parcel arrived to create my layouts, I could not wait to try them out!
 Canvas, pencil and a little doodle dooooing later I came up with my girl
 " Courage "
Mixing together the inks from the French Quartet to colour her wings . . .
 adding the teeniest amount of ink to acrylic white paint for touches of blush . . .
the background . . . more deeelish Ink applied using a baby wipe to work it into the canvas, a drop goes a long way using it like this.
I remember going over the wings and background working the inks in with baby wipes and brushes until I was happy before
 flicking and splatting a few of the inks to break up the background. 

I honestly can`t begin to tell you how much fun I had using the inks to create my wings, background and blushing cheeks on my girl
how super quick it is to cover a canvas with ink using baby wipes.

I hope you have a go and enjoy all the splatters and splots along the way!

Catch you next time, I am now officially addicted to inks, lol . . .
Big hugs

Childhood is the most beautiful of all seasons ~ Colour Chemistry

Hi everyone, hope you are all having a crafty time. Tracy here today with the final layout to share, you will find them all in this months issue of Scrapbook Magazine.
By now you  can probably tell I have a love for layers and old book pages, they work so well with the range of products from Oak House Studio.
 Spraying through masks to add interest to the book papers, inking and stamping, splatting and flicking . . . oh my what a time I had!
I felt like a chemist mixing my Gesso and modelling paste with splots from the Inks in a bottle.
 Oh, did I mention the inks I have been playing with are the The French Quartet collection, deeeeelish!
Using them like watercolours to colour the images, splodging and flicking to create pretty flowers , who thought splodges could look so pretty,lol!

I`ll be back soon with a few more projects to share with you all, I hope you can stop by.

Till next time
Big hugs

All for the love of inks ~ Colour Chemistry

Hi everyone, my name`s Tracy Easson and I`m so excited to be here as a guest designer for
 Oak House Studio, thank you for having me!
 I was over the moon when I received a commission from Scrapbook Magazine to create three layouts using products from the Colour Chemistry range for this months Issue.
 It was as if Christmas had came early when the box of goodies arrived at my door!
Can`t wait to show you over the next few posts the layouts and a few other projects I popped together. 
 Oh the joy of creating with the yummiest of inky coloured goodness and stamps galore.
Getting messy inky happy hands, mixing colours to create new shades, stamping and adding them to Gesso and Modelling paste ... my idea of bliss!

Here`s a peek at the next layout I`m sharing 
. . . book pages, tissue paper, mediums, inky goodness, colouring ... I could go on lol!

Hope to see you next time.
Big hugs
