Art Journal Page


Today I am sharing an art journal page.

As you can see it is a double page in my A4 Ranger Journal.
I started by Gessoing the pages, then I used Gelatos to create the background colour. I then tore up pieces of Mulberry paper and some book paper that had been coloured with Twinkling H2O's and stuck them down. I stamped some flowers and heat embossed with clear embossing powder before stamping some more flowers using StayzOn ink. Next step was some rub-ons. When the Mod Podge I used to seal the background had dried I used a stencil and some texture paste coloured with acrylic paints to create the yellow flowers and grass.
I used my Pitt Pens to shade and detail the yellow flowers and grass before I stuck the white flowers on.
These were cut using Leane Creatief Multi Die Flower 006 which has the 3 different sized flowers. The heart centres were made using a punch I have had for a very long time. Detailing once again with Pitt Pens. I did go over all of the white flowers with my Wink of Stella White pen but when I gave the page it's final coat of Mod Podge any sign of the shimmer was lost.
The title was printed on the computer, sprayed with Glimmermists and then stuck down. It gets lost in the background and I have been debating about going over it with my White Gel pen but not sure if I want it to stand out that much.

We have been very busy and have been away a lot. We are away again this weekend as well. Off to Berri for their Rock and Roll Festival. A busy weekend, especially for Ray as he is DJ'ing Friday night in Renmark and Saturday night in Berri. Lots of lugging of equipment for him and very late nights for both of us as he has to pack up after each function.

We have also been away to Barham Rock and Roll Weekend. It was the first time we had been there. It is a long way from home but we went their on our way to housesitting at Penshurst in Victoria. We enjoyed the weekend but because it is so far away we probably won't go again.

We really enjoyed the house sitting. We were there for just under 3 weeks. We house sat Stonefield Vineyards just outside of Penshurst while the owners went to Bali. They have 50 acres with half of it under vines. There was no vine work during the time of year so we basically had to look after their dog and chooks. They also had cows, peahens, peacock and ducks. We had a good look around the area while we were there. Reacquainting ourselves with Port Fairy, Hamilton, Mt Eccles and Warnambool.

Thanks for dropping by
Till next time
