I made a new one. The pages I make are fairly simple. I always start by seeing if a page needs paint somewhere. Then I add the photo's and embelishments (in my case nothing more then scraps and printouts - nothing fancy).
Did it again, made a new you tube film for you to watch. I'm on a roll here :-)
I used the yellow tags from Mary Anns Remains of the Day class, which are awsome. Really need to remind myself to make such a labels myself as well. They're so easy to use and handy to have on hand.
It is still quite a proces to make a you tube film, never knew that uploading costs so much time! But at least I managed again. Bear with me with the lighting and I shall make final picture shots next time, which shall be better to see than just holding up the page in front of the camera out of the light like you see me do here.
Happy scrapping everybody!
Jeee, that took me quite some effort to upload another you tube film. I had made the movie in just 16 minutes, but simple editing took me ages. I just wanted to speed it up, add some music and flip it upside down, but installing the correct program (Windows Movie Maker) was a major deal. The movie maker just will not start up, really irritating. I've de-installed and installed several times, but no cure. In my despair I finally decided to use other free ware programs, but they are either far to complicated to understand or take ages to render a 16 minute film. I also tried the editor program of you tube itself, after I finally managed to upload the 16 minute film (took 4 hours), I discovered that you can slow down the movie, but not speed it up, grrrrr!!!
But now I have the solution: go to my parents house (where Windows Movie Maker does work), and do the editing there. Although I do wish this could be simplified even more, I'm at least very proud to present: a movie of making a scrapbook page, enjoy!
I keep liking to paint like van Gogh, my hero. And so today I bought some real oil paints. A very very cheap set, for I didn't know if I would like it. It had 12 different colors, and non of the colors from the wrappers round the tube resembled anything like the colors that were inside. The titanium white looked more like a gray. The orange more like a red. And the paints was realy thick, so I sometimes just behaved like van Gogh, puting the paste-like paint directly on the canvas to smear it out. I did have some turpentine (which made me feel high in an instance), but even using that could not prevents the paint being highly sticky. In the end I did use acrylic paint for the white parts, for I didn't like the gray version. Mixing acrylic white with the other oil paints went pretty well.
I do feel that it is far more easier to paint with oils like van Gogh then using acrylics. You don't see the brush strokes as much when using acrylic paints.
Here's a close up.
Jee, I'm absolutely loving the doodling, I can spend an entire day just making squares, circles and swirls with colors from a kids paint box. Then comes the black marker, that certainly enhances the interest in the page. Together with the whites. I also found a red marker and some orange ink that I used on the page. And that's it!
I'm more and more into doodle art, just provide me a kids watercolor paint box, a black marker and some white type-ex and I'm happy as can be, doodle-ling away.
I'm not entirely happy with how this page turned out. It is simply not cheerful enough. But hey, had a good time creating it anyway. And shall learn from my mistakes.
this is a super simpele card, just take your paint and draw some squares on a piece of cardstock. from wrapping paper cut a few petals. then paste them on the card and draw a line to let them stand out. a simple greeting can be added just before sending.
Hi, I'm Bregtje. Here you can find me with my head between piles of paper, sticking stuff in arty albums and brushing away with paint. But I also can be found with my head in a newly home made cupboard or above the kitchen stove or even up side down in the garden! And now I'm developing a new hobby to add to my ever growing project list: blogging about it all! Please find my Garden blog, Kitchen blog, Homemaking blog and Art blog here!
