New Dylusions Postcards & Canvas Samples - January 2017

Showcasing our New Dylusions Postcards and Adhesive Canvas

On today's blog We are featuring Samples made using the new Dylusions Postcards and Adhesive Canvas sheets

NEW! Postcard Images #2


Introducing the second edition of Dylusions Postcards. Each pack includes 8 designs taken from Dyan's art Journals. These postcards are fun and eclectic and make a great collectables, note cards, or ephemera for art journals and mixed media projects. Postcards are 4"x6" and printed on heavy white gloss cardstock.


Above We have added the postcard to a large Dylusions #12 Journaling Tag. We have doodled around the postcard using the Dylusions Black Marble Paint Pen. The Green background of the tag has been decorated using the Dylusions Ink Sprays (It was a mop up tag, inked by moping up left over ink from another project!) and then stencilled using Dylusions Stencil Holes and Dylusions Cut Grass Paint. The stamps are from the New Dylusions Stamp sets; Words - Shut up and Colour. The Bulldog head Stamp is from Puppy Dog Tales and the body is from the Mini Me stamps set.... Don't they look brill when you mix the animal heads and bodies?



Here We have taken a Dylusions Square Journal Insert, We have painted and stencilled using the blocking technique with the following paints and stencils;

 Dylusions Acrylic Paint, Slate Grey, Black Marble and White Linen
Dylusions Stencils, Stained glass, Modern Script and Fresh dots

We have stuck the post card down and doodled around using a combination of the Dylusions Black and White Paint Pens.
The Stamps We have used are the New Dylusions foliage stamp set, stamped onto Mixed Media Cardstock.

I love the simplicity of the black, grey and white with the postcard to add a pop of colour!



Here we have taken a Dylusions #12 Journaling Tag - Mixed Media The background of the Tag has been decorated using Dylusions paints; Bubblegum Pink, Lemon Zest and Squeezed Orange. New Dylusions Stencils used are Stained Glass, Diamond in The Rough and Fresh Dots. 
We have then added a postcard & doodled around it using the Dylusions White Lien & New Postbox Red Paint Pens. We have then added the matching stamp form the New Dylusions Mini Moo stamp set. I really love the glossy texture of the postcards.



Above We have taken a Dylusions #10 Journing Tag - Black and stencilled direct onto the tag using the Large Dimond in the Rough Stencil and Dylusions Calypso Teal Paint, We have highlighted some of the diamonds with White Line Paint Pen. We have then added the postcard and doodled around the postcard and tag using the New Dylusions Squeezed Orange Paint Pen. The Mini cat is from the New Cat amongst The Pigeons stamp Set, The saying 'Mirror Mirror on the wall, what the frikk happened' is from the New Dylusions Shut up and Colour Stamp Set.
The Wing has been stamped direct onto the Adhesive Canvas sheets - Blank with Black Archival Ink Pad.


NEW! Adhesive Canvas Images #2 


The Second collection of Dylusions Printed adhesive Canvas images are great for creating your own masterpiece or being inspired by Dyan's imagery. Perfect for journaling and mixed media techniques and ready for use on pages in art journals, cards and mixed media projects. The Adhesive Canvas images include artwork taken directly from the journal pages of Dyan. Thses unconventional and eclectic designs are a great addition to your projects. 


The above tags are both made using the Dylusions #10 Journaling Tags - Mixed Media, The Adhesive Canvas has been stuck on and then stitched around using a sewing machine, we love the texture and dimension this adds to the tags. Using the New Dylusions Puppy Dog Tales stamp set the Bulldog head has been added to the Bassett Hounds body and his lovely hat is from the New Dylusions Mini Me stamp set!... Doesn't he look rather dashing?!!


Here we have used a Dylusions Small Journal Insert - mixed media, The background has been made using the block technique using a blending tool with Dylusions paints; Bubblegum pink, Lemon Zest and Squeezed Orange. The stencils we have used are the New Dylusions Diamond in the Rough, Stained Glass and Fresh Dots.
We have added the New Adhesive Canvas Image and then stitched around it using a sewing machine. You may recognise the dog from the New Dylusions Puppy Dog Tales stamp set and his legs are made from the stem on the Doodle Bloom stamp set when have then added his slippers back on! The saying 'I'm sick of people they're everywhere'... Isn't it great? is from the New Dylusions 'Shut up and Colour' stamp set.


Above We have taken a Dylusions #12 Journaling Tag - Mixed Media, again the background has been decorated using the blocking technique. Here we have used Dylusions Pomegranate Seed paint, Funky Fuchsia and Bubblegum Pink. The Pomegranate Seed is a deep red but I just love it mixed in with the pink, I think they look really yummy together! 

We have then added one of the New Dylusions Canvas Sheets, Stitched around it using a sewing machine. We have then stitched a border down the left hand side of the journaling Tag. The Saying "I'm sick of people they're everywhere' and Wings have been stamped direct onto the Dylusions Blank Canvas Sheets, cut out and stuck down. We have stitched the wings and left the adhesive backing on them so that the curl up slightly.
The Hearts at the bottom have been cut out of the canvas sheets and stuck on.


Here we have taken a Dylusions Journal Insert Page - Small - Black. Painted using Dylusions Slate Grey, White Linen and Black Marble paints. The stencils We have used are; the New Stained Glass, new Modern Script and the Small Direction Stencil.
On this one instead of sticking the whole image We have cut it out and then cut little hearts and dots.. Don't they look cute? Again the words have been stamped direct onto the Blank Canvas, stuck down and stitched using the sewing machine.

Again We hope you have enjoy them as much as We enjoyed making them! 

Love Dyan & Jay
