Never assume – Art journal page

Hello lovelies! It´s time for another art journal page share. For today´s page I´ve again used gelli plate tissue paper magazine transfer images as my focal point. This is what the finished page looks like:

The background had a layer of purple spray ink already on it, so I painted on top of it with yellow and green acrylic paint. Then I added a few strips of old book paper here and there and created „lines“ next to them with ocher acrylic paint tone.

I then added stenciled images with STAMPlorations „Leaves 1 and Leaves 2“ (from my line of stencils there) onto the page and stamped with a Viva Las VegaStamps stamp images onto the backgrond before I moved over to adding the tissue paper magazine transfer images onto the page. I then highlighted some of the images with Posca pens and for finishing touches added some more stamping onto the bottom area (again using Viva Las VegaStamps) and finished everything with a powerful quote.

That´s all for today. Be sure to come back on Friday for another project share! Wishing you a great day and see you soon,
xxx, Sanna


The F*ckin´ Badassery Group of f*ckin´ art journalers – Volume 1

Hello there and happy 1st of August!!! My amazingly creative and talented crafty friend Tina Walker is always good for collaborations of all kinds. She has the most amazing ideas for projects and this time, well, we did art journals based on our favorite f-word quotes. So if this is not your „thing“ I suggest you stop reading here…

This is the Volume 1 – there might be more journals coming later :). Here is my first take! Once more, if you find this type of projects/words not suitable, please do not read any further! I however think that creative people tend to use plenty of swear words and it´s been proven that people who swear tend to be rather intelligent…

So this is my first „Fuckery Abounds“ Art Journal project – attention: this one is photo heavy..:

I´ve used my Gelli Plate to create the book page background. They are made of one single page of 12×12 paper (folded to several pages). There are plenty of book binding/folding instrucktions to be found on the internet  (I use this book for inspiration very often).

For decoration I´ve used plenty of Viva Las Vega Stamps rubber stamps – they have plenty that fit the Journal theme perfectly!!! Also I´ve used some eco dyed fabrics for the book covers – loove the look and the feel they create!!! Then there are some Posca pen details added here and there on the pages as well as some Alexandra Renke washi tape combined with a film strip washi. And I´ve used my sewing machine to add some texture to the pages.

The pages themselves are very simple, but in very bold color! I love this color combo at the moment!!!! I wanted to create a bold background for my fave f-word quotes :). And here is a flip-thru of the journal as a video:

Now go to Tina´s blog for her project and also for more links to other participants blogs to see what they created around this theme! I sure had a great time creating mine!!

Have  a great day!
