Take Risks Art Journal Page

Hello there my lovelies!!! Today is my turn on The Crafter’s Workshop’s blog and I have created this art journal entry. I also have a process video which you can watch at the end of the blog.

The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.

I begin with building my background using Dylusions Paint in Squeezed Orange and Vibrant Turquoise and TCW9016 Spun Sugar Heavy Body Acrylic Paint. I use my rubber brayer to apply light coverage to my art journal pages.

Once dry I add some splatters using the left over paint. Then using a make up sponge I apply TCW9016 Spun Sugar Heavy Body Acrylic Paint with TCW773s Connected Dots.

Next I randomly apply Vibrant Turquoise paint with TCW764s Scrambled Numbers and dry with my heat gun.

The next layer I use TCW361s Mini Tiny Circles with Squeezed Orange paint.

And for the last layer I use TCW336s Mini Letters with Funky Fuchsia paint.

At the moment I am loving having a border on my art journal pages so here I used some washi tape around the edges and applied TCW9022 Black Gesso with a paint brush.

I stamped my sentiment and image onto some white cardstock and used a Stabilo Aquarellable Pencil for some shading. Then added splatters using TCW9016 Spun Sugar and TCW9015 Black Licorice paint which I watered down.

Go with your heart Art Journal Page

Hi Everyone and happy Thursday!!! Today I would like to share my newest art journal creation for The Crafter’s Workshop using alcohol inks and TCW products. I also have a process video at the end of the blog if you would like to see me in action.

The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.

I had previously applied TCW9002 Black Gesso to a page in my art journal which I used for today’s entry. I trimmed my Darkroom Door Synthetic Sheet in the lightweight so that the black gesso was a border around my sheet.

I used TCW809 Ocean Window in both the 12×12 and 6×6 and applied Alcohol Inks through the stencils using a felt blending tool. The colours I used are Pool, Lemonade, Pistachio, Current and Pink. I added some blending solution to the blending tool for the area on the 12×12 stencil.

Once it was all dry, I added some stamping using Darkroom Door stamps and black archival ink. I then applied TCW9049 Tacky When Dry Gel Medium through TCW541s Believe Script 6×6 stencil randomly around my page. I let the gel medium air dry for about 15-20 minutes.

Then I used a sheet of Decofoil in Lapis Watercolor and rubbed over the areas of the stenciled gel medium.

To finish off the page I added my butterfly stamp, sentiment stickers by Tim Holtz and adhered my finished sheet to the art journal page.

I hope you have enjoyed my post today, below is the process video.

Art Journal – Make Each Day Your Masterpiece

Hey there my crafty followers!!! Today I am up on the Helmar blog with this art journal page.

To create the background I applied some acrylic paint to some canvas paper

Next I stamped 49 and Market Going In Circles Stamp with Versafine. This is a small stamp so used it a few times till the cardstock was covered.

I then sealed the cardstock with Helmar Crystal Kote Fixative Spray. I am an impatient scrapper so I used my heat gun to make sure the fixative was dry but you could set it a side for a few minutes.

I then applied my Distress Oxide directly onto my page and sprayed with water until I was happy with the effect. Then dried it with my heat gun.

To adhere my page to my art journal, I used Helmar Spray Adhesive. I always use a scrap piece of paper under the piece I am spraying, this just protects my work surface. I left the sprayed cardstock for about 2 minutes and then placed it in my art journal.

I stamped the paint splatters using Darkroom Door Paint Splats stamp set and then choose a few of the splats to add Helmar Tacky Craft Glue. Then sprinkled the glitter on top.

I also used Darkroom Door’s Artist’s Palette stamp set for the paint, brushes and the sentiment. I used watercolour paints to add colour and then adhered them using Helmar Acid Free Glue.

Art Journal – Adventure

Hello Everyone! I am up on the TCW blog today with another art journal page. When I started my art journal page, I didn’t really have a clear idea on what I wanted to do but decided to just go with the flow and see how it turned out. I find a lot of the time I over think what I want to achieve and it was nice to just let it go. So with that said, this is what my “let it go” looks like.

I’m not sure about you guys but I have a lot of pages in my art journal where I test new products. I wanted to start covering those pages with new projects and this is how I do it. I start by painting TCW9002 Black Gesso all over the page.

Once the black gesso is dry I then apply 2 different coloured shimmer sprays. Against the black these sprays just “pop”.

I used a heat gun to dry in between both colours. Next I used TCW9014 Iridescent Silver Heavy Body Acrylic Paint with TCW267s Mini Ledger 6×6 stencil. I used a sponge dauber to apply the paint to the page.

Once the paint was dry I then mixed another spray with TCW9004 Light and Fluffy Modeling Paste to create a light brown tone.

Next I applied it through TCW454s Mini Specimens 6×6 stencil. I only used the round patterns on the stencil.

I used my heat gun to dry the stencil areas. I love how the paste took on on some of the colours from the sprays. To finish off the page I added some stamped images and splattered with a white spray.

See Possibility Art Journal Page – Helmar

Wow can you believe it is already August?!!! Today I am up on the Helmar blog with an art journal page. I had the theme of underwater and have been dying to use the Dylusions Plenty of Fish in the Sea stamp set so I thought this theme was perfect!!!

See Possibility Everywhere by Farrel Tailor

To start the page I blended Distress Oxides Iced Spruce, Broken China and Faded Jeans using my blending tool and then spritz some water. I then used a paper towel to light dab off the water.

To seal the page so that I can apply other mediums, I sprayed Helmar Crystal Kote Fixative spray.

I wanted to add something else to create that underwater feel. So I added some Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical Shakers in Time Travel Teal and Guten Tag Teal.

I use a heat gun to dry and then put aside. Next I used my stamp platform to stamp some images from my Dylusions stamp set Plenty of Fish in the Sea. I then used my alcohol markers to colour them in.

I added some stamping to the background of my page using Distress Paints – Broken China, Picket Fence and Spiced Marmalade. I used a Finnabair stamp set Net and Wire and a Dylusions stamp set Basically Square. I then used Black Gesso to create my page border and added some final touches using Uni Posca Pens.

Next I used my Dylusions Art Journal Block and Dylusions Small Leaf stamp to add some sea plants along the bottom of my page.

To adhere my sea creatures I used Helmar Craft Glue.

To finish off the page I then added my title using some Tim Holtz stickers and then gave one last spray using the Helmar Crystal Kote Fixative spray.

Just Create Art Journal Page – TCW

Hello Everyone!! Today is my turn on The Crafter’s Workshop blog with a mixed media art journal page using some of my favourite TCW stencils.

The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.

To start off I applied TCW9001 White Gesso to my pages as I had some marks on the paper that needed to be covered. I then used a brayer to apply some Paper Artsy chalk acrylic paint in Beach Hut and Inky Pool.

Next I used TCW790 Micro Bricks in the 6×6 stencil with Distress Paint Picket Fence.

Once that was dry, I then used TCW737 Love Sonnet in the 6×6 stencil and Distress Paint Spiced Marmalade.

Once I was happy with the background, I then added some stamps from Viva Las Vegastamps and black archival ink.

Next I stamped onto some tissue paper using Dina Wakley Splatter Girl stamp set and black archival ink. Then torn around the stamped images and using TCW9006 Gel Medium Gloss I painted the area that the tissue paper was going on and once placed on the pages I then painted over the top of the tissue paper making sure the tissue paper was flat.

Here are some close ups

I hope this has inspired you to use your favourite TCW stencils and get creative!!
