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.

Altered Frame – Dusty Attic

Hey Hey my mixed media followers!!!

Today I am up on the Dusty Attic blog with this  mixed media altered frame. I created this frame to demo at the Dusty Attic Retreat last month and I had so much fun creating it.

I have had such an overwhelming response to the frame that I am teaching it here in Perth next month and also at another retreat in October in NSW so I won’t be able to giveaway too many details.

The frame I used is a shadow box photo frame and I used Dusty Attic Texture Paste along with Prima Rust Effect Paste and some Prima Sprays.

The centre of the frame I used some chipboard pieces, Jumbo Cogs, Monarch Butterflies, Mini Number Grid, embossing powder, Dusty Attic Rusting Powder and some inks.

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.

Beautiful Dreams Art Journal Page

Hello Everyone! I am back again today on The Crafter’s Workshop blog with this art journal page I recently created.

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

For my background I randomly added Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical Shakers in Time Travel Teal, Polka Purple and Autumn Maple Crimson. Then sprayed with water and put aside to dry.

Using a make up sponge, I applied TCW9002 Black Gesso over the top of TCW775 Scalloped Mandala 6×6 stencil.

I liked the pattern the make up sponge made so I continued the dabbing all over the page.

I thought my page needed something else to break up the black so I used TCW261 Art Is 6×6 stencil and TCW9013 Iridescent Gold Heavy Body Acrylic Paint. I used another make up sponge to dab through the stencil. Because I had already used the Scallop Mandala stencil, I laid it on top of the script stencil so I knew where not to apply the gold paint.

Next I painted the chipboard feathers and chains with TCW9002 Black Gesso. Because chipboard is quite thick, I split the chipboard in half first.

Now to add colour to the feathers and chains. I started off by added art alchemy waxes and then added some TCW9036 Champagne Gold Modeling Paste by using my finger in a dabbing motion.

Next I added some Fluro Pink acrylic paint and finished them off with TCW9001 White Gesso.

For the chains I also used art alchemy waxes in White Gold and Rich Copper but it needed to be a little lighter so I added Brushed Iron as the end. I used a liquid glue to adhere the chains and feathers.

To finish off the page, I added a quote from Tim Holtz quotes sticker book and inked around the edges using Salty Ocean Distress Oxides. Then used some Uni Posca pens to draw around the edges of the page.

Here is a close up of the finished page

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial
