Renee Zarate's Bolton House is still in New England but Renee herself has moved on to South Carolina. The days are a little different now, no garden to take care of means more studio time. Dealing with snow and blizzards will be a thing of the past but there will be new challenges. Challenges like...how will we ever carry these two chairs and this huge umbrella down to the beach? Stay tuned.

AIRs Artist Project of Choice:: LOVE card
Today for my AIRs Artist Project of Choice I'll be making a master board and turning it into an all occasion card. You could make several cards, tags or a journal page using this master board and the embellishments from Ruby Rock It.
Here is a mini tutorial in the event that you'd like to make a card like this one.
From IMAGINE Crafts and Tsukineko
StazOn Black Solvent Ink
Brilliance Pearlescent Pigment
Ink in Poppy, Olive, Thyme, Rocket Red Gold, Beige, and Lightning Black
Memento Dye Ink in Summer Sky
Fireworks! Spray inks in
Dandelion, Bahama Blue, Tangelo, Lady Bug, & Cottage Ivy
Apply an even light coat of gesso
on a sheet of water color paper and allow it to dry.
Using the direct to paper method
of application, apply Brilliance inks to the paper. Spray inks with their corresponding
Fireworks! Spray inks and allow inks to blend. Dry with a heat gun.
Lay a stencil over the prepared
paper and spritz with water, blot dry.
Lay a different stencil over
paper and apply a thin coating of gesso.
Allow to dry.
Using a different stencil apply
Brilliance Pearlescent Poppy ink randomly to the paper. Allow to dry.
Cut panels to fit the size card
that you want to make, in this case the watercolor panel is 4” by 6”. Stamp and cut out a heart shape.
Using Ruby Rock It
embellishments pop out hearts and circles, stamp them with text stamps, set
aside. Pop out an oval shape from
collection and use the white side to stamp phrase on with the Lightning Black
ink. Distress the edge of oval shape
with Poppy colored ink.
Mat watercolor panel on black
card stock that measures a ¼” larger all around, mat on to white blank card
that measures 4 ½” by 6 ½”.
Stamp heart on panel and then
again on a scrap piece of water color paper.
Stencil red circles on to the second heart and cut out. Attach the cut out heart on top of the
stamped heart on the card.
Glue heart, oval and circles on
to the card and attach a bow tied from black twine.
