Art Journal Page with Guest Designer Tamiko McCurry

Hello EVERYONE!!  Tamiko here and it is my last week as a Guest Designer for Gina's Designs Laser cuts.  It has has been super swell to be here each Wednesday!  If you haven't noticed my style by now, I love color and I loooove sparkle.  You can never have too much of either when you are playing with fairies!  Check out my latest journal page..

I love anything and everything about fairies, then again I am biased because of the color and sparkle/glitter/shimmer factor.  I am not colorful person in clothing, nor am I adorned with sparkley accessories, but my heart is.  My friend Sandee Setliff, an awesome artist, and she reminded me to..  DREAM BIG, Little fairies grant BIG WISHES!  I believe there is a little bit of fairy sprinkling kindness/fairy dust everywhere daily in many of us.

Any who, back to my project.  I covered all my fabulous chippies from Gina's Store with gesso.  You don't have to, but I do, especially when I know I am going to use Design Memory Craft's gelatos.  It allows me to literally apply color and rub with my finger.

Here I took the Dressform Hang Ups  and attached it to one of the Ornamental Birdcages Shape Set and a set wings from the Wings Assortment pack.  I colored with gelatos and let sit and dry a bit. I  then added my Design Memory Craft Glass Bead Glitter Gel, becaue it dries clear on the project and allows the intended color from chippies to shine through.  Gina's chipboard/hard board pieces are such an amazing quality and I have tried various mediums on all of them and they had stood up to EVERYTHING I have thrown at it.  Not once did the buckle/pucker/warp during the process, which is very important to me.

    Then I added fairies from the small and medium packs.  Believe me.. YOU will want several of these assortments and there is a LARGE TOO!!  Making a new wish list!!!

I love Gina's Store, I am very excited over the projects I have been able to produce over the last few weeks.  Her chippies have allowed me to create things I would not normally even attempt on my own.  With an awesome selection of chipboard pieces and her MORE than affordable prices I will always come back and refer her to friends and fellow crafters alike.  If you get a chance to check out her site! I am more than sure you will find something that tickles your fancy, personally or for a spectacular gift.  Again, it has been uberly awesome to be a guest designer for her and her company.  Please subscribe to her design team's YouTube Channel , they are a talented bunch and don't forget to LIKE her Facbook page by clicking here and join her Facebook group for even more inspiration by clicking here.
