Grungy Mixed Media Art Journal Pages

Hi folks!
Good Morning :)

Preeti Datta (aka Dutt Preety) here. Hope you are doing well :)

For today's post, I've prepared Grungy Mixed Media Art Journal Pages using some beautiful Stamps, Stencils & Chipzebs by Mudra Craft Stamps. There is also a step-by-step pictorial for the first art journal spread, which I hope you'll enjoy. 

Art journalling is a wonderful way to express oneself, express how we are feeling at the time, practise techniques and compositions, without the fear of criticism. The main aim is to enjoy the process, play with your art supplies, experiment, learn and keep trying.  So, let's start :)

1. Grungy Art Journal Spread- Life is Beautiful













Pictorial:

Step 1: Adhered old book pages & washi tapes to the journal pages using soft matte gel & then applied clear gesso over the surface to protect the papers & also prepare them for media work

Step 2: Mixed Heavy Black Gesso with Modelling Paste to create a black paste & applied it through Mudra's Square Extrude Stencil, adhered black thread to the pages while the paste was still wet

Step 3: Applied color using spray inks & created a loose watercolor look by spraying water

Step 4: Did background stamping using Mudra's Stamps- Checker Mini, Special Day Mini & Warli Stamp

Step 5: Adhered Mudra Chipzebs- Swirls & Words #2 using tacky glue/soft matte gel

Step 6: In the end, distressed the edges of the pages with ink & created splatter with watered down gesso

2. Grungy Art Journal Page- Together







Process:

1. Applied white gesso to the page to prep it for media work
2. Adhered washi tapes to the page using soft matte gel
3. Created a loose, watercolor look by spraying the page with water & dropping in different ink sprays in shades of pink
4. Did background stenciling using distress oxide & Mudra's Geometric Stories Stencil
5. Did background stamping using archival inks & Mudra's Stamps- Geometric Stories & Home Is 
6. Adhered Mudra's Love Chipzeb as a focal element, drew on a scribbly border with a fine point pen & created ink splatters.

Geometric and Floral Challenge inspiration cards.


Geometric and Floral are my favourite combination. So when I saw this month's challenge on Mudra Blog, I was like YES! I could not wait to make cards using this combination and share with you all.

Hello everyone, This is Gayatri here with you sharing couple of card for this month's challenge. For the first card, I used Flower Bunch stamp set to stamp and watercolour to make my own background.
Here is the card #1


  • I used the flower cluster in the stamp set to stamp all over the watercolour panel in black ink.
  • I coloured them using Zig Clean Colour Brush Pens.
  • To add the geometric part of the challenge, I used the grey zig pen to add broad horizontal striped on the background.
  • The big sentiment is from Purely Sentiment Brushed stamp set, stamped vertically.
  • The smaller sentiment is stamped vertically above and below the big sentiment.
  • Finally added white Nuvo crystal drops to finish the card.

Here are the closeups of the card.




For the second card, I used Magnolia stamp set along with Floral Mosaic stencil.

  • I stamped the Magnolia flower cluster in black on the top of the panel twice cover it fully.
  • I coloured the images using copic markers.
  • To the bottom of the panel, I sponged Blueprint Sketch distress ink lightly fading away.
  • Then I place the Floral Mosaic stencil and sponged the Blueprint Sketch ink this time strongly so the pattern shows.
  • The big sentiment from the Purely Sentiment Brushed stamp set is stamped directly on the bottom of the panel.
  • The smaller sentiment is stamped in black on a strip of pink cardstock and adhered using foam adhesive.
  • Again I finish the card with a scattering of white Nuvo crystal drops.

Here are the closeups of the card.



Both my cards have floral clusters. But I showed you two ways to add geometric element to the card. First one you can do it yourself by painting horizontal stripes with your own choice of medium. I used watercolour. I also went for subtle grey strips but you can do black for bold contrast. 
For the second card, I used stencil to add the geometric element. I did a tone on tone for subtle effect. You could do it in black for high contrast.

Hope you enjoyed the projects I shared today and got inspired. If you make a project for the challenge, make sure to link it to the Mudra Challenge Blog Post. Click the graphic below for the challenge blog post.

Children's Day creations with Mudra

Hello Friends , 

Im Sharada Dilip from HappyMomentzz here today to share my creations with Mudra products.


Its Children's Day today and it is celebrated across India to increase awareness of the rights, care and education of children. It is celebrated on 14 November every year on the birth anniversary of the first Prime Minister of India Jawaharlal Nehru also called 'Chacha Nehru'. So I'm sharing some inspirations and easy creations for you and your Kids to create together and spend some time bonding on crafts !

Buddha Canvas Art / Mixed Media Buddha Wall Decor



  • Supplies required - 
  • Canvas 
  • Buddha stencil
  • Acrylic paint 
  • Modelling paste / Texture paste 
  • Spatula
  • Paint brushes
  • Floral Flourish Chipzeb.



  • Once you are ready with your supplies, start with adhering the Buddha stencil on the canvas as to where you want the Buddha image to be made on the canvas.
  • We decided it to go in the center of the canvas 
  • Next step is to create the texture image using the stencil. This is the fun part of  the creation using the Texture paste and the spatula. 
  • Kids will love create the textured image in a jiffy! Slowly remove the stencil and wash and save it for later. 
  • The textured image needs to dry for further steps. You can heat dry it but I chose to air dry it.
  • Once the image is dried I have painted the inside of the flower and the face with colour of my choice and added details to it
  • My kid chose to give the black outline on the stenciled textured outlines 
  • The rest of the canvas was painted to earthy colours by my kid 
  • We decided to finish off the canvas wall art with Floral Flourish Chipzeb.
Me and my Kiddo enjoyed making this Buddha Canvas Art / Mixed Media Buddha Wall Decor

Stencil Rangoli



Sharing a few creations from last week , when I planned Diwali activities for my Kid. We decorated our home with Stenciled Rangoli using Mudra Rangoli stencil. It was fun and easy creation ,with very little help from me my Kid decorated the home entrance with these lovely rangolis.




Watercolour Gift tags 



The gift tags would be something small and easy to start for with kids .My Kid used the die cut tags added colour splashes to them. He enjoyed experimenting with the colours and combinations and created these wonderful marble painted tags. I completed the creation with creating backgrounds with the stencils and distress inks. Further I have added chipzebs from the Diwali chipzebs and more Diwali die cuts for the Diwali themed Tags. 


We both enjoyed making this together sharing our ideas and I was super excited planning activities for my Kid !! That is all for today :) Please don't forget to link up your gorgeous creations in the Mudra Challenge 27. There are beautiful prizes to be won & a chance to Guest Design as well.
