Hello creative friends, I hope you are having a good week. My week is going well. This week I decided to create an art journal page using the image of the Panda that I painted some time ago. So I printed the image and cut it out to add to my journal page. I started with a page that I had affixed a polka dot napkin to some time ago using Gesso. I sprayed some Dylusions & Adirondack inks to the page to add color. I then found a couple of titles and a quote in my stash to add to the page. I added some stamping and then traced around the whole page with a Posca pen. Here are some pics of the page I created.
And here is the video showing how I created this page.
I think the page turned out really cute. Thank you for stopping by and watching my video. Hope you have a great week. Until next time, happy creating.
Hello creative friends. I hope everyone is having a good week. Mine is going well. This past weekend I went on an outing with the Journey Daybook club to a quilt shop. I saw some fabric there that had roses on it with some text, so I decided to create a page with the same elements. I drew the roses and then glued on some scrap paper with text on them. I used watercolor paints to paint the page and added my title and a quote that says "The flower that blooms in adversity is the rarest and most beautiful of all", by Walt Disney's 'Mulan'. Here is a picture of the page that I created.
I also decided to make a mini journal. I took a leftover scrap piece of paper and folded it into a journal. I then decided to antique the pages with coffee and some brown Staz-on ink. I found some ephemera in my stash to add to the journal cover and the pages. I then antiqued two tags craft with the brown Staz-on ink, added ribbon to the tags and then added the tags to the pockets of the journal. I also took some scrap brown card stock and added some tabs to the pages. Here are pictures of the journal I created.
I plan to add more to this little journal as far as writing at some point. If interested here is a video showing how I created this mini journal.
I really like the way this journal turned out and they are a lot of fun to make. I hope you like the video and try making one yourself. Please leave me a comment if you have any questions. Have a great week. Until next time, Happy Creating.
Hello creative friends. I hope everyone is having a great week. My week has been going well. This week I have an art journal page that I created using acrylic paint, watercolor paint and ephemera from my stash. I first added scrap paper to my art journal pages and then drew a picture of a tiger on the page. I colored the pages with watercolor paints and the tiger with acrylic paints. I then searched through my stash for a couple of quotes and other ephemera to decorate the pages. Here are some pictures of the art journal page I created.
Here is a video showing how I created this page.
I really like the way this page turned out. I feel like I could have done better on the Tiger, but I am happy with it. I want to start including animals more on my art journal pages. Thank you for stopping by and watching the video. I hope you have a great week. Until next time, Happy Creating.
Hello creative friends. I hope everyone is having a good week and had a good 4th of July. My week is going well and my weekend was relaxing. This week I have a flip through another mini antique journal that I created for my Etsy shop. I used mixed media, brown acrylic paint and black Staz-on ink to create the cover and distress it. I antiqued the pages and sewed them into the journal, but made it so that you do not see the stitching on the outside of the journal. I used ribbon to add some side tucks and then added some tags. I used ephemera to decorate the cover and then attached a chain with a couple of key charms to the cover for a closure. Here are some pics of this journal.
And here is the video showing a flip through this journal.
I really like the way this journal turned out and I love the antiqued pages. It just takes a lot of time antiquing the pages. Hope you like the video.
