GJS AND CIP blog hop

Welcome to the Genuinely Jane Stuios(GJS)/Creative Inspirations Paint(CIP) Blog Hop! If you came from Dana's  blog then you are in the right place. If not, and you would like to start at the beginning, please head over to the Creative Inspirations Paint Blog Here

Before we get to the good stuff, let me give you a little info on each of these two awesome companies: 

Genuinely Jane Studios manufactures small and medium size wood mini-albums for mixed media, scrapbooking and altered art in many shapes and sizes. All of the albums are hand made right on site in their Central Missouri facility. In addition to their albums, they also carry other art supplies in their online store. 

Creative Inspirations Paint, our other company in this team up manufactures non-toxic, water based, translucent, shimmery paint that can be used for scrapbooking, card making, mixed media, altered art and more. They also carry embossing powders, glitter and UV resin. Using the paints is as simple as "Shake, Open and Play!" The paints are some of the most vivid you will find on the market and made in Washington State. 

All of the designers from both teams have joined together to show you what can be created using the albums and paint! Be sure to check both the Genuinely Jane Studios and Creative Inspirations Paint websites to see all of the wonderful products! 

 And for me this blog hop is a kind of closure: for 2 terms I was a DT member for CIP and now I design for GJS , so I just feel great with both company's products.
Today I am going to show  you an art wall deco I made with GJS Cascade book. This book comes in 4 wooden pages , from small to bigger. So I decided to make 4 separate art pieces and to combine them to one single art piece in my new (yet not finished) craft room.
I  am still thinking about the proper arrangement of those pieces, but this is how  I feel it should be done.
 Each piece has a word over it and all together say " ART IS NEVER PERFECT" -
I am pretty sure you agree with me. All pieces are made over wood, no paper at all, but masks, mists, gesso and a lot of CIP.

And now for a single pages of this art piece
Art page was made with Tando Creative mask, gesso and embossing gold powder over the mask. I stamped with VLVS! Film strip stamp and Explore word stamp and then painted the old chipboard letters with CIP.More paint was added around the piece. All together was misted with  some random mists (Ranger)

The second page  is " IS" page, smallest one of all 4.
Again I used Tando clock mask, gesso and heat embossing, VLVS! stamps and just outlined the old letter stickers.

The third page is my " Never " page and .... OK, same same. Mists, masks, stamps, paints, Same companies all over this project.Here I also added a huge CIP drops over the whole piece.

And the last one, the  largest and the most " artsy" one.

Do you see the real old paint brush here? I left it with a drops of CIP after I painted the Perfect title.
That's my project for this hop and I hope you like it as much as I do.
Like what you see? Well, guess what? There are a couple of great prizes being given away at the end of this hop by both companies!
