Cheshire Cat .... for Art and Soul Studio

Hi everyone, it's challenge time again over at Art and Soul Studio! and this month I have created a cheshire cat journal spread to play along with the challenge

I used the challenge mood board as inspiration:

 So I played along with the Wonderland theme, used the colour theme and added my little playing card in the corner of the spread...  

Why not join in the fun there are 3 x $50 vouchers up for grabs!! One will be awarded for scrapbooking layouts, one for cards and one for mixed media/art journaling.

The Moodboard Challenge Rules are easy,  use our mood board as inspiration to create an art journal page, a card or a scrapbooking layout. Use the mood board however you want but you must add a playing card and as these challenges are sponsored by Art and Soul Studio please make sure that you use at least one product that is available from the store. You can enter an art journal page, a card and a layout but you cannot win all three.You have until the 11:59pm on the 31 July to enter and then the design team will vote to determine the lucky winners. Please note that the vouchers can only be won by residents of Australia but if you are from overseas and win the challenge you will be offered a guest design team spot.

And finally I also have a time lapse process video for you to enjoy, so grab a cuppa and enjoy.



Oh and as a little bonus for those interested... if you would like a copy of my hand drawn face features to transfer onto your page as I did in the video, just drop me an email at ascrappetiger@gmail.com  and I'll include you in the mailing list...

Alcohol Ink Painting on Yupo

Hi everyone, I'm back with you today to share my latest piece for Art and Soul Studio, an alcohol ink painting on Yupo which I have called "Autumn Stream"


I have been wanting to play with alcohol inks on Yupo paper for a while now... Yupo paper is plastic paper and is great for not only alcohol inks but also for watercolours and professional printing too...
It was fabulous to paint on with the alcohol inks and if you have the opportunity I would definitely say have a go at it... you can't ruin it using alcohol inks... cause you can just use Isopropyl alcohol and clean it all off and start again!!!  Fabulous for experimenting on...

I have made a time lapse video of my process for you all... so grab a cuppa and enjoy...


here's a couple of close ups...


Product List:

Copic Pen E39 Leather
Copic Pen Y38 Honey
Alcohol Ink Blending Solution


hope you enjoyed seeing my process,
till next time
Happy Creating,
