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,

Changes are coming AJ page

Hello lovelies and happy Wednesday! While recovering from my knee surgery during the past weeks, life has been somewhat a rollercoaster ride, and I really haven´t been able to do crafting as much as I would have loved to do, due to mobility and other health issues, which I never thought to be so exhausting and also frustrating.

Art journaling from time to time has given me a media to process all the things that have happened during this process of healing and keeping a journal has been one of the only ways to actually craft at the moment. So it´s kept me sane in a way.

Here is one of my recent ones:

I don´t need much for such a page. Just some watercolors and pens and some random bits and pieces. Easy to do and still a way to get some of my feeling and/or thoughts on paper.

This last one „changes are coming“ is a posivite note. Yes, I´ve been thru alot the past weeks and yes, it was tough at times, but eventually, I am starting to see light at the end of the tunnel and the changes happening from now on will be chanelled towards positive changes. So here´s to a start of a new path for me :).

Happy crafting,
xxx, Sanna
