ADORNit feature....Art Play Paintables "Vintage Camper"

On Monday, the design team at Mountain Plains Crafters participated in a joint blog hop with ADORNit; creator of all things, fabric, paper crafts and the all new Art Play Paintables, designed by artist Lindsay Ostrom.  We created sooooo many lovely things that I'm breaking it down in a more detailed format this week, featuring each of my creations in detail with tutorials.  Here's the original post with all the hop creations: http://www.adornit.com/blog/art-play-blog-hop/

For my first project, I'm using an Art Play Paintable design from the "Ladybug" collection.  I've created a mixed media piece which has been embossed, watercolored, sanded and glittered.  I even distressed my paper, tearing the edges.  I've used my Tombow Dual Brush pens from the Bright collection, using a watercolor technique.  You can see that I embossed just the upper left section of my paper, after I watercolored it.  I love that the embossed swirls match the swirls of "smoke" trailing from the camper.  :)

The cardstock used for the card below is from the ADORNit Blender Basics paper pack.  It's good, heavy, double-sided paper and I simply trimmed the 12x12 piece to 6" and scored it.  It has a fun chevron design on the inside that I can embellish as well!  The papers used, from the Blender Basics, are "Mustard Damask" and "Blue Chevron".

You can see a better view here where I've glittered the moon and stars.

Check back tomorrow for an "out of the box" project that you are going to love!
