Turn Mistakes Into Beauty Art Journal

Hello my lovelies!!! Today I am up on The Crafter’s Workshop blog with another art journal creation. So grab a cuppa, sit back and relax as I take you through on how I created this page.

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

To begin my page I used Distress Oxides and my round foam blending tool to create a soft background. Then I used my water spray bottle create some marks to the background.

Once dry I then used TCW803 Distress Lace in the 6×6 and blended Distress Oxide ink around the corners of my page.

For the center of the page I used TCW812 Coronet Wreath stencil and Distress Oxides Ink.

For the next step I had orginally used a stamp around the corners but didn’t like it so I used TCW755 Modern Lace and another Distress Oxide Ink to cover it…. Hence where the title came from for my page.

Next I used a combination of Colour Blast Pastes – Royalty, Deep Water & Just Blue and applied them using a spatula to TCW816 Bird and Butterflies stencil.

I used Dina Wakley Scribble Sticks to add some colour around the birds. Then I highlighted around TCW816 Bird and Butterflies stencil with a white paint pen.

I used the scribble sticks to add colour the my heart stamped image.

I used TCW9011 Gel Medium to adhere my Dina Wakley Tissue Paper Sentiment.

To finish off I splattered the page using TCW9001 White Gesso.

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and have a safe new year. I will be back with more projects in the new year

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
