Journal page with NEWS paper.....

 I SO love how this turned out. And it's so easy to make! 

I"ll tell you how! 
1.  Take a piece of 18 x 18 cm cardstock and paint gesso generously onto it. While still wet, adhere pieces of newspaper to it, by just putting it partly in the gesso, rubbing it only in the centre parts. Leave to dry. Tear the parts that are not adhered to the background, off. 

2. Add some structure to the background with a stencil and structure paste.

3. Add a layer of gesso over the page, so the pieces of newspaper are faded. 

4. Sponge the background with Distress ink, spray with water to let it run. Leave to dry. 

5. Stamp the flower with a solvent ink on a stirdy piece of newspaper paper, cut it out, and adhere it to the background. Stamp it partly again, also on the newspaper paper, and cut the flowers out that are the highest part of the flower. Color it all. I used watercolorpencils, watercolor and a Molotow marker for the outlines (green). Adhere the top little 3 flowers to the page with 3D glue. Leave to dry. 

6. Stamp the scrabble letters onto the newspaper paper, and cut them out. Find yourself some letters from the newspaper that will form the word PAPER in colors coordinating with the rest of the colors. Adhere them to the page. 

Look at thos yummy colors! 

 I hope you like it!

Journal page with texture....

"A subtle amount of structure attracts the eye" 

 One reason to be making Art Journal pages is because you can experiment ... with products, inks etc. 
I used some felted flourishes here, covered it with gesso, and wanted it to stay the main focus on this page. 
I did use some stamping in the background, a script from Magenta, stamped with the same color Distress ink I've been using in the background, pine needles.

Art journal page with theme - Aphabetical

An art journal page about the alphabet! 
I chose to use the beautiful urban alphabet stamp as main image. 
To highlight it I heat embossed it with black.
 It needed more, so I used this gorgeous chipboard to focus on the stamp. 

Hope you like it!
