Keep taking chances Art Journal page

Hello and happy Sunday!!! Today I´m stopping by to share another art journal page with you. I´ve used some of my stencil designs on this one. I wonder if you can guess which ones?

I´m again working in my Ranger Inc. art journal that has various types of pages in it. I love these kraft pages! It´s so much fun creating on them. For this page I´ve used Dina Wakley Media paints, washi, scribble sticks and her stamps. Oh, and fussy cut bits from her Collage Collective book.

Now can you see what stencils I used? It´s the Amaranth and the Art Flowers 2 stencil, both used for „negative print making“ with acrylic paints. I´ve only used parts and I love the images they create! Definitely going to do this more often!! Other than that, it Scribble Sticks, Dina´s paints added in various ways and some older neon spray inks.

January feels like it´s going to be mainly art journaling and mixed media related :). BUT if you come here tomorrow, you might be in for a scrapbook layout :).

Just a little heads up, if you are interested in my stencil designs at STAMPlorations – here is a discount code for you at their store:

Hope your weekend was nice! Wishing you a good start into the new week!

Stray strong – Art journal page

Hello and happy Tuesday!! Today I´m again stopping by to share another page from my art journal. I´m working in my Ranger art journal at them moment, so I have various type of pages I can play with. Today, it´s a kraft paper page.

I have some stencil prints on the page (see the turquoise Gloss Spray pattern?). It´s done with my new stencil called „Amaranth“ and with Dina Wakley Gloss Spray. I love the look of that simple print in the bold and bright turquoise against the kraft background.

The other patterns are either Dina´s paints or her Scribble Sticks. The tag is covered with Nuvo Embellishment Mousse, Elizabeth Craft Designs washi tape and Dina´s older sentiment stamps (see details on the supply list).

Then there is some asemic writing, done with a white Posca pen. The tree is colored with a black scribble stick. After that I added a layer of Nuvo Crackle Paste on top. I love the look! That is pretty much it. The swirly black thing is done with Dina´s black paint.

That´s all for today! I´m at work again, so for me holidays are over. We are still on the 3rd lockdown here in Austria and it will go on a while still (almost to the end of the month). Still, I am hoping this year will be better to all of us. We sure all do need some good news for a change, right?

Do come back on Thursday to see what I created for my Elizabeth Craft Designs monthly post :). See you then!


Happy crafting,

Art journal page

Hello and happy Friday!!! Yay to weekend!!! I haven´t been sharing any art journal pages in a while here, so today I´m doing so. This one is in a big Dylusions journal and created using Dina Wakley paints and Scribble Sticks as well as her Collage Collective book.

I´ve first done a stencil pattern with leftover paint onto the background (using my Onions in Raws stencil). Next I used a huge brush to add the blue swirlish pattern to the page. Then I added some diluted magenta paint into the middle. After that I drew circles with Scribble Sticks in orange and green.

After that I grabbed a Viva Las VegaStamp and stamped the pattern with black ink. Then I added some asemic writing (thanks to Tina I figured out how to do that! It´s my first try, so bare with me…) to the page and topped everything off with fussy cut Collage Collective book bits.

That´s it! I like how this page turned out. Especially the fact that I now know how to do asemic writing. It still needs plenty of practise, but I kind like doing it, so it will be a plesure practising.

Happy weekend, lovelies!!!

Art AJ page

Hello and happy Sunday!!! Now this is just random play, but I love the colours. A little something to bring me joy while I´m still missing my mojo. I just added stuff until I felt like there was nothing more to add – also obviously because the page was already so full (LOL).

I first painted the background in two colours – apricot and blue and then went from there. I added some writing with Posca pens onto the background. Just random things I felt like writing down.

Next I took the Carabelle circle stencil out and added some DWM gloss sprays thru it onto the background. Next I added random splots of spray onto the upper part and let them from droppings to the page. While that was drying I sprayed some residue chipboard with the gloss sprays and also pressed some gloss spray to the „tag“ and then stamped the words onto the tag.

For finishing touches I added the sprayed chipboard and some fussy cut circles from another AJ page shared here previously. Then I did some details with Posca pens and added some Thickers for additional detail. That´s it!

Making this crazy mess felt much better already. So I´m hoping my mojo will soon return from whereever it went :).

Have a great Sunday and a good start into the new week!

A set of DWM tags

Hello and happy Friday! Today I´m stopping by with another tag share. These, again are created with plenty of Dina Wakley Media product. I am so enjoying this at the moment!

These are again done using plenty of gloss sprays, but also Dina´s heavy body paints as well as her collage collective book, her washi and tissue paper. The stencils on the right tag are all by The Crafter´s Workshop and the little words are handmade by my friend Lizzy. I adore them!

This background is pressed on splots of gloss sprays. Repeatedly. After the spray was dry, I attached the tissue paper image with gel medium and colored the face with Distress Crayons by Tim Holtz. The word is by my friend Lizzy and the red circle is from Dina´s collage collective book.

For this tag I was simply dabbing residue paint thru a stencil. Both paints by Dina. Then I sprayed the gorgeous lemon gloss spray on top. Let that layer dry and added the fussy cut circles from Dina´s collage collective book. Then some washi, the handmade word and some journaling.

I really like how these tags turned out. I might keep them as they are and even frame them OR I´ll add them to a journal page later. Time will tell.

I´m hoping the next weeks will be better, weather wise, because I am on vacation. Ha! So funny, doing a vacation without going anywhere special. Well, strange times require unusual measures. So no vacay.. I didn´t have one last summer due to my first knee surgery and now the second knee and covid19. I sure hope next year will be better (fingers crossed). I so, so, so miss the sand and the sea. What about you? Any plans?

Wishing you a nice day and weekend!!
