Here at Artful Days, we love mixed media, creating 3D projects, as well as art journaling, making tags, ATC's, altered art and art assemblage.
We have just launched another set of stencils and chipboards, they have been designed for both marking making and mixed media backgrounds, but are perfect for all the fore mentioned crafts.
One of the items I have been wanting for a while is ATC chipboard blanks, they are a very versatile as you can use them for trading with your friends, making mini art, quick makes but also fun to incorporate into larger projects too.
Each one of the cards below were coloured by pressing into the gelli plate, after printing with the stencils. This leaves a ghosting print, then you can take your stencil, line up to trace inside the stencil with a white gel pen to make the designs stand out. I have embossed all the chippies using Wow powders, it's a really effective way of colouring them and giving a lovely gloss or glittered finish. I used the lines stencil with black ink to make marks. Finished with a few extra element.
I'm really pleased with how these have turned out, they are quick to make, the colours are uplifting and are the perfect size for trialing layouts and practicing techniques
