Hi there, I have another art journal page to share this week in rather Spring like colours as I think we all need a bit of cheering up with the rather wet weather we’ve had this week.
That’s Crafty! Dinky Stencils – Bubble Wrap Background, Floral Background
That’s Crafty! Clear Stamp Sets – Fleur & Fern by Donna Gray, Inspirational Quotes Set 1
PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Acrylic Paints – Chartreuse, Sherbet, Lilac, Rose
DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic Paints – Yellow Green Light, Green Gold, Primary Magenta
Archival Ink – Fern Green, Watering Can
Old Store or Credit Card
Apply paint to the journal page using an old store card – I used the PaperArtsy paints for this step, adding paints randomly until the page was roughly covered.
Use the bubble wrap stencil with the modelling paste to add a random pattern to the page. Allow the paste to dry, then put the stencil back over the raised areas and paint with the magenta DecoArt acrylic.
Paint 3 tags with chartreuse paint and apply a pattern using the darker green paints with the floral stencil. Stamp a quote on one tag with the green Archival ink. Stencil ‘live’ on another with the magenta paint, When the paint is dry, doodle on the words with the green marker and outline the letters too.
Stamp the flower from the Fleur set and the large leaf design from the Fern set on stamping paper and paint with pink and green paints. Cut the images out and add them to the third tag with foam tape.
Finish off the page by adding the tags tied with baker twine. You’ll see that I reversed the central tag to add extra interest (if you want to do this, make sure you turn the tag before adding the flower!)
Have a great weekend and see you next week.
