So for the background on these pages I used some craft paper for the base then added gesso and paint. For texture I used tape and corrugated cardboard.


Simon Says Stamp Challenge #4

Hello,

I guess I'm doing a lot art journal sharing these days because I have another page for you guys. Once again this also is an entry to the SSS Monday Challenge. I will keep this post short and sweet as I still have one final post in regards to this challenge.


The background on these journal pages are full of texture. These pages are some of the first journal entries in this book and I guess I had to much fun spraying and inking everything..Hahaha.. I used ribbon and fabric strips for the quote in addition to distressing etc. I don't even know if I can recall all the different techniques that may have been used. My most favorite thing though is the vintage photo!

Simon Says Stamp Challenge Entry #3

Hello Friends,

Another day another entry! My third submission for the SSS Monday Challenge is another page from my art journal. My art journal is a great place to experiment with new techniques and to just LET GO and DO instead of THINK. The way I see it each new page is an opportunity to just make a mess and see where it takes me. Sometimes I create something I don't like at all but as I build layers it eventually turns into something I'm satisfied with. I do try to create my pages from start to finish but it doesn't always happen that way. I also tend to work on multiple journals at once. For example if I have any excess medium that I don't want to waste I will apply it to the pages of another journal and  then I can come back to it later.


Here is an example of what I meant when I said I like to just DO and not think. I started with a blank page that I covered in white gesso. I had no real idea of what I wanted to do or what colors I was going to use. I did however have an idea of what mediums I wanted to use so I gathered my supplies and just played. This spread is the result of scrap tissue, washi tape, India ink and water color. It has become one of my favorite pages because of its simplicity.


Simon Says Stamp Challenge Entry #2

Happy Saturday!

It's cold and it's rainy today so that means LAZY SATURDAY! Well lazy is a bit of an understatement because there is so much to do around the house. So with a nice cup of freshly made coffee (loving my Chemex btw!) in hand all I need now is my art journal. Speaking of which, before I go I want to share my second submission for the Simon Says Stamp Make Your Own Background Challenge which is a page from my art journal.


The background is a combo of paint, stamping and an old piece of shelf paper.

First DT project using Kaisercraft Storybook!

Hi Friends,

I'm back today to share my first design team project for The Creative Escape. I had so much fun working on this, especially because it's been a while since I've made a mini album. The paper line I was given was the new Kaisercraft Storybook collection along with a 5x7 Maya Road chipboard album.

I decided to approach each page of the album as if I were creating a double page layout. I then took Walnut Stain distress paint and painted all around the edges followed some distressing with Archival Ink in the color Potting Soil and Dew Drop's Galaxy Gold. Next for a more unified look I used black cardstock as the base for every page.
