Work on you – Art Journal Page

Hello lovelies and happy Saturday!!! How´s your weekend getting along? I hope you get to spend some time crafting and relaxing. I have yet another, this time very simple art journal page share for you today.

This one I kept very simple mainly because I wanted to focus on the quote! It´s just something that totally hit me and also one that fits my current recovery journey. Work on you – for you! What better way to put it?!

I started with a watercolor ombré background as I wanted to keep everything very simple to emphasize the quote and make it stand out. So I started by adding a light tone of pink, then moving to a purple and finally to a blue watercolor tone.

I then hand wrote the qoute with Posca pens and then used the Evolution stencil to doodle the outline with black and white Posca pens. For finishing touches I added a few blue Nuvo Embellishment Mousse splatters and draw pink stars next to them. Also again using a Posca pen.

Easy peasy and fast and effective. Felt right for today – doing this style of a page.
Wishing you a gorgeous day,
xxx, Sanna


A Moment Art Journal Spread

Hello everyone and happy Thursday!!! I´m continuing with some art journal madness today again. It feels comfortable creating in my art journal at the moment, so I am sticking to it. Today, be prepared for another crazy colorful take:

Boom! How´s that for color?! This page started off with a mineral water bottle I got from my son featuring an artsy label on it. He had saved the bottle because he thought I might love it :). How well does he know me, huh?

Well I certainly loved the images on the bottle label, so I fussy cut them out and used them on this spread.

But first, I ceated a base for the spread. I used Magenta and Lemon Yellow paints with my Evolution stencil. I added some newspaper strips here and there, accompanied by washi tape strips and black pen and pencil marks.
Then for the next layer I added some turquoise acrylic paint – again using the Evolution stencil with it. Then I took a Carabelle Studio eye stamp (love this one!) and added random stamp images across the page.
For the next layer I adhered the fussy cut bottle label images onto the page, next adding some watercolor paint and blue Nuvo embellishment mousse to any white areas and colored the stamped eyes with watercolor paints also. I doodled some random patterns here and there with Posca pens, also outlining the faces with the same pens.

Then I wrote a quote with Posca pens to finish off the pages. Here are some detail shots of the pages:

Lots of layers on these pages :). I love creating this color explosion!!! That´s it for today, lovelies!

Wishing you a great end of the week, take care,
