I’m over on the Blitsy blog today with a new tutorial. This week I have kept with the pineapple theme of our Blitsy Summer Trends blog hop from earlier this month to make a little mixed media pineapple art journal page. It is another in my print-look style tutorials.
I’m kind of really getting into the print-look. Obviously stamping is perfect for getting that printed look but I’ve been stretching my stash and trying to find ways to achieve printed looks and styles with things that perhaps your first thoughts would not go to printing for.
So for this printed look I’ve used pineapple chipboard embellishments to ‘print’ the pineapples using dye spray, I really love the bright pink with the yellow watercolour background!
I’ve also added in some pen work to give it an illustrative print look and add that contemporary feel to it.
I go through the whole process plus how to turn a chipboard element into a printing element. It is one of those projects that each time you do it you will get something slight different and unique, so practically a monoprint! I hope you will give it a go.
All the details are in my ‘How To Make Zingy Pineapple Art’ blog post over on the Blitsy blog and you can see all the products that I have used there too.
