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 …

ATC Cards with a Twist

Hi dear crafty friends! Today I want to share my new ATC Cards with a Twist. Why a twist? because of the stamps I used on them. These are quirky, whimsical and different stamps I got from Stampotique. I really like their designs so I had to create another project in addition to the art journal page I created last week.     ATC Cards with a Twist Atc’s or Artist Trading Cards are small cards created in different style and design in the purpose to trade them. It’s really fun and if you really get in to it you have a collection of little pieces of art from artists around the world in different styles and looks. I always create a series of atc’s with the same design elements and colors.             I started with adding texture to the background with stencils and modeling paste.

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 …

How to Art Journal with Stamps?

I love using stamps in my art journal pages. I use them for backgrounds, accents and even focal points. So today I’m sharing my tips for How to Art Journal with Stamps? It doesn’t matter what stamps you have they can all be used in your art journal.     How to Art Journal with Stamps? First I started with the background. I wanted it to be as colorful as possible so I used different types of stencils with different colors of acrylic paints. I tried to use small pattern stencils so the pattern will be visible later when I’ll cover the page with paint.     The next step was to draw the drops shapes and paint around them with acrylic paints. This is the point when you need to decide the theme of your page. I wanted to do a page about rain so I drew the rain drops and they were the only part of the background …
