What counts AJ page

Hello everyone and happy Sunday! Today I´m stopping by to share with you some sunshiny yellow in combination with light blue/turquoise. Basically summer colours really. These colours make me happy and bring me joy and lift my mood!

This is just a fun, litte page experiment with Dina Wakley Scribble Stics. I used then almost solely for this page. I just added colours that felt good that particular moment. I actually started with the circles. I drew random circles with magenta onto the journal page, then added lots of happy yellow and combined that with lime and turquoise.

Then I added the black scribbles, drawn with my right hand (which is not my writing hand!) and fussy cut some Tina Wakley scribble girls washi tape into the circles. For finishing touches I made splatters with Dina´s Scribble Sticks, added golden paint troplets which I „rolled down“ with a straw to create that smeared, flat image. And then I wrote the „thought bubble“ alongside the black lines.

I like the brightness and happiness of this page so much. We are still on lockdown (except we get to go to work in the office on some days, rest is home-office) here and it will go all the way to 8th of February now. And who knows how long after that still.. So we need some happiness here, urgently. I hope I could brighten up your day also abit with this page!

Art journal page – STAMPlorations Stencil Challenge reminder

Hi there! Have you played along with the STAMPlorations October Stencil Challenge yet? If not, there is still enough time to join the challenge!! As a reminder and additional inspiration, the design team girls are sharing more projects on the STAMPlorations blog today.

Here is my take for today:

A page in my art journal, called „B the magic“. I´ve used the Evolution stencil with texture paste to create this page. For additional texture I added some gelli plate treated paper (green circles here and there).

The faces are stamped on tissue paper and colored with spray inks. There is plenty of Distress Paint added to the background, but this time I kept to very light and soft colours.

I´ve added black stamped sentiments here and there and highlighted parts of the page with Posca pens. They are my go-to pens when art journaling. I had such a great time creating this page!! Now´s your turn to play and when you do, be sure to join the STAMPlorations October Stencil Challenge (HERE). There are great prizes to be won, so don´t miss it!!!

Happy stenciling,

Art journal page

Hi there everyone and happy Tuesday! Today I´m stopping by to share an art journal page with you. Just some random play I had in my art journal the other day. Recently I am really enjoying this type of play time alot.

Here is what I created:

I wanted to use the misted masking tapes on this page, so I added them on top of everything else and added the journaling onto them. Apart from that I´ve first covered the page with a piece of tissue paper magazine transfer in green, then layered fussy cut magazine parts (leaves) on top, added some stamping.

Stamps by Viva Las Vega Stamps and details with Posca pens. Just a page that was a result of a quick playtime. It feels so good to create these pages into my art journal lately. Just putting down bits and pieces and not giving it all too much thought. And yet every page that comes out in the process, kind of represents something that has been going thru my mind recently. Have you tried this type of art journaling recently?

Happy crafting,

Go see do Art Journal Page

Hi there and happy Wednesday!!! Today I´m again dropping by my blog to share another art journal page with you all. This time the theme is about travelling. I have a huge bucket list to work thru and I love to go to new places which I sadly cannot do this year due to my surgery, but soon, soon hopefully travel plans can be added to my calendar :).

Thus the travel themed page today:

I´ve added lots of bits and bobs to this page. There is some paint on the background, then I added some gelli plate transfer tissue pieces (see the lady´s face in the middle?). That piece is one of those.

I fussy cut and added a world map in pieces onto the page, then did some stamping, journaling and adhered random fussy cut pieces here and there.

I had a great time creating this page and dreaming about future travels :). Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Happy crafting,
xxx, Sanna
