Mixed Media Fabric Art Journal Pages

Hi dear crafty friends! Today I want to share with you Mixed Media Fabric Art Journal Pages that I’ve created for my art book.     Mixed Media Fabric Art Journal Pages Fabric pages in an art book are unique and special addition. These pages are a textural contrast from paper and add a softer look to the book. Other than a change in texture fabric pages usually include techniques like sewing, embroidery and have different materials on them like lace and buttons. I really love adding fabric pages to my art book. An art book is basically an art journal that we create from scratch and is bound in a book form. The idea is to express ideas, feelings, dreams and fears on one hand and create art on the other on separate paper pieces in different sizes and patterns. Those pieces of papers are divided into signatures that are stitched together into a book. A signature is a …

Never Stop Creating Art Journal Page

Hi dear crafty friends! I haven’t created an art journal page in a while. I finally got the time to create a page so today I’m sharing my: Never Stop Creating Art Journal Page. It’s colorful and only made with water colors and Posca pens.     Never Stop Creating Art Journal Page Sometimes I have a specific idea for an art journal page but sometimes I just feel like I need to create something but I have no specific idea in mind. This was the case with this page.        So I simply filled the page with blocks of colors with my wet brush and water colors and then started doodling. I started with a black and white Posca pens. Then I added some more colors. I didn’t have a direction so I just doodled shapes and patterns and went from there. The more the page got its shape the more I knew what I wanted to …

Give Yourself Time Art Journal Page

Hi dear crafty friends! I haven’t shared an art journal page in awhile so today I’m happy to share my Give Yourself Time Art Journal Page. Some pages take time to create but some pages like this just make themselves 🙂     Give Yourself Time Art Journal Page The creative process for this page was easy. I wanted to create a page with a woman’s image on it. So I started with adding two colors of acrylic paints to the page. Next I took a white piece of watercolor paper and started adding layers of paint, stenciling and stamps. When I was happy with the result I cut out an image of a woman. I drew her by hand and didn’t care that she wasn’t perfect. Aren’t we all?…         I cut the image in two pieces and added them to the page. Then I started adding stamping doodling and some more paints. I also wrote …

What if I Fall Art Journal Page

Hi dear crafty friends Today I want to share my What if I Fall Art Journal Page.This page is a little different than usual in its look and process. I got these new stamps from a friend and just had to try them… this is what came out.     What if I Fall Art Journal Page Sometimes I start an art journal page from something I want to say like a sentiment or a quote. But sometimes I want to try a new fun supply that I got. In this case I got these cool stamps I just had to try. So I created the background first without really knowing how it will proceed.       I created “hills” with masking tape and then added lots of spraying. Then I stamped my page with these two funky looking girls and started adding details and color. Finally I added one of my favorite quotes that was really appropriate to …

My Top 3: Art Journaling Page Ideas

Hi dear crafty friends! You might be surprised to hear this but even I get stuck or uninspired. I always have my art journal near by and I really love creating pages but even I sometimes stare at a blank page with no ideas. So today on My Top 3: Art Journaling Page Ideas.       My Top 3: Art Journaling Page Ideas These 3 ideas are always a good starting point when I have no ideas… 1. A quote Find inspiration in a favorite quote. I go online and do a search with a keyword I like and the word quotes. Then I get a list of great quotes with that word and at that point usually an idea will come to my mind. A quote is a great way to get inspiration not just for the text of the page but also for the design. For example the quote: Home is where the heart is inspires me …
