Nasty look AJ page

Hello lovelies! Today I´m stopping by to share another art journal page with you. For this one I´ve used plenty of stencils, because I love them :).

I started by pressing the Peacock feathers stencil (painted with green Distress paint) onto the page twice. That created the lovely negative image of my stencil design pattern. Next I grabbed the Molecules stencil and applied some blue Distress Paint thru it directly onto the background. I was not very specific about getting a perfect pattern. I was just playing.

Then I let the background dry and applied yellow spray ink and the washi tapes. I also misted one Dina Wakley tissue paper red and adhered that onto place with matte medium. Then I added some more stenciling (red leaves pattern) again using a Distress Paint. For finishing touches I grabbed a gelli printed piece where I had added a residue green tinted paint thru a stencil onto and fussy cut 2 little circles. I inked around the edges and adhered them on place.

To finish off the page I stamped a Dyan Reaveley sentiment onto an old book paper, fussy cut that and adhered it on place. And then just added a few droplets of red and black ink.

I really like how this turned out! And creating it was so much fun!!
Hope your day is a good one,

Art journal page

Hi there lovelies and happy weekend! Wishing yours filled with lots of sunshine, swimming, fun times with the loved ones and also some crafty time :). I am dropping by to share another art journal page with you today – something totally random, very colorful and done out of a momentary feeling which led to these results:

I´ve added lots of bits from magazines and newspapers to this page. Just fun colorful things here and there.

On the bottom I´ve used my Molecules stencil and some yellow acrylic paint. Everyting else is just paper layers. Some are colored with watercolors to make them stand out more. For finishing touches I added some Posca pen decorations, some white gesso and random rub-on residue bits. I love working in my art journal lately and I´m trying not to thing much when I start – not over-analyzing anything, just letting the feeling carry my forward. Feels good to just let things happen on their own. Messy fun!

See you soon again,
xxx, Sanna

More Ideas Than Time – Art Journal Page

Hello everyone and happy Wednesday!!! Can´t beliebe it´s July already. We have been enjoying VERY warm weather here in Austria the past few weeks and its not the best of weather for a knee in recovery..so lot´s of quite sleepless nights behind me. Therefore I have been trying to cope with the pains by art journaling… Hoping also this phase will pass.

So here is the latest creation:

I did  some collaging on this one and cut pieces from newspapers and jewellery advertisements for example, to use on this page. There is also some stenciling (by stencil line by STAMPlorations) on the page.

And I also added some stamping (the eye).  Highlights were added with watercolours and Posca pens.

On the background you can see some very light stenciling as I wiped thru the stencil with some Nuvo Mousse. I also matted the page with bright yellow acrylic paint before doing everything else.

I had so much fun with this page!!! Definitely going to do this type of pages more in the future. I think I am hooked ;-)…

Happy crafting,
xxx, Sanna
