Arty Update - Latest News for January 2021

All you need is love and art!

My art journal page featured in today's blog post was made featuring a musical theme, inspired by disco, 60s and 70s faves (The Beatles, Bee Gees and Cat Yusuf Stevens) and gorgeous colours! Hope it makes you smile :)

All you need is love and art - journal page featuring silhouettes and ultra bright paints by Jenny

How it was made ... First make an ultra bright background with your fave Dylusions acrylic paint colours. Then mask the 2 front silhouette stencils (use the inner shapes, temporary purple tape on the back holds in place) and blend over them with darker paint along the bottom section. Add the backup dancers using smaller silhouettes stencils. I traced them with a black paint pen then coloured them in with paint. Take off the front masks, then when dry, draw on them with white and black paint pens or paint with a brush. Lastly, add stars by blending Stickles Glitter Gel through a stencil. It really is so much brighter and sparklier in real life!
I'll publish a blog post soon, with photographic step-by-steps so its easier to understand :)

Hexies Art for All Occasions ... All of Dyan's newest designs of stamps and stencils are in stock! Try paper piecing with the quilting inspired hexies and add fake stitches using the groovy "A Stitch in Time" Stencil (large or small or use the new Dyalog Stencils).

Add thoughts to clear your mind with 'Full Blown Circus' or write your own (our handwriting is unique to us, so cherish your lettering skills and add it to your journals).

Dylusions Silhouette Stencils compliment all styles and designs of artwork, as well as look fantastic on their own as part of a background or featured on their own artwork.

There'll be 2 new sets of pins too... bit by bit, we're gathering all the Distress colours into wearable art :)
