Just Be Happy Art Journal Page

Happy Thursday Everyone! Today is my turn at The Crafter’s Workshop Blog and I am sharing this page I created using photo paper, Distress Oxides and of course TCW Products. There is also a process video at the end of the blog if you wish to watch me in action.

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

For this I used my large Dina Wakely art journal, I am still trying to get use to using such a large journal but who doesn’t love stepping out of their comfort zone? lol

To being I used a sheet of A4 glossy photo paper and apply my distress oxides to the paper using a rubber brayer and also using the smooshing technique.

I used my heat tool to dry between colours. Then used TCW812 Coronet Wreath with more Distress Oxides.

Now for the magical part….. I used a baby wipe to wipe away the oxides and POW!!! The end result is amazing!! The colours are vibrant

I used as make up sponge to apply TCW9002 Black Gesso to TCW749 Floating City.

I used TCW9002 Black Gesso to cover up a page in my journal that I did some experimenting on a while ago. Then for a border, I used TCW804 Mesh Blocks to add some doodling with my Uni Posca white pen.

After adhering my photo paper to the page, I then added some stamping for a title and just like that another art journal page done. Here is the video….

Thanks for dropping and I look forward to sharing my next project with you all soon xx

Inspire Love Create Mixed Media Art Journal Page – TCW

Hi there everyone! I am back on The Crafter’s Workshop blog today with an art journal page I created whilst off on a girls weekend recently.

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

For this page I used the watercolour paper in my Dina Wakley large art journal. I started off by applying a thin coat of TCW9001 White Gesso using my silicone brush.

Next I built up my background using a swiping motion of the Distress Ink pads in colours Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, Cracked Pistachio and Peeled Paint. I also used the same colours on my tag but stamped the ink onto my non stick craft mat, sprayed some water and dabbed the tag onto the inks.

I used Distress Ink Peeled Paint and TCW361s Mini Tiny Circle stencil on my page and on the tag using my blending tool.

Next I used TCW780 Botanical Dream stencil and Shimmerz Texturez paste in Patina and Teal Me No Lies. I used a spatula to apply the paste.

Using TCW780 Botanical Dream stencil again and a blending tool, I applied Distress Inks Cracked Pistachio and Salty Ocean to add more pattern to the background. I also added some stamping using black archival ink.

For the tag, I felt it needed another colour so I added Spice Marmalade Distress ink around the edges a little on the middle of the tag. Then stamped the heart using black archival ink.

The tag needed something to sit on so I cut the burlap from the art journal and distressed the edges. I then used a paint brush to apply some TCW9001 White Gesso.

To finish off the tag, I stamped the words below and using my water pen and Distress Ink Salty Ocean, painted the letters. Then adhered them to the tag.

I stapled the tag onto the burlap using my tiny attacher and then used a liquid adhesive to adhere to the art journal page.

To finish off the page I added some doodling around the edges of the page with my paint pens.

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial and will be back soon xx
