I hope you enjoy this weeks journal prompt.  I thought this week’s quote was quite beautiful. Obviously you can replace any words to make it resonate with you more. May all your prayers be answered.

Extra Challenge:

For an extra challenge this week. Think of a prayer for YOU today and base your artwork on this prayer.  We often think of family first, but make it specific to you and not anyone else. Use your favourite colours this week, making one colour the focus.

For those of you who would like daily or alternative prompts, I have prepared a Daily Journal Prompt List. You can find it in the Facebook Group under Files.

3 Ways to Decorate your Traveler’s Journal Inserts

Hi Lulu Art creatives, Kate with you today and I’m so happy because I managed to get my grubby little hands (literally – I’ve always got paint or ink somewhere) on some of the fabulous new Prima Traveler’s Journals in the Lulu Art store – my current favourite is the Nomads set!  Each set comes with some plain notebooks tucked inside and well you know me, I couldn’t just leave the inserts undecorated!  So, I thought I’d show you 3 different ways to decorate your Traveler’s Journal inserts to create 3 completely different looks.

I’ve grabbed 3 journal inserts to play with, a Prima Weekly Journal Insert (Black Cover), a Prima Journal Insert – Scribble Lines Floral (Blank Pages) and a plain Kraft cover blank insert.

You can see how each cover was created in the video clip below, I hope you find a style that suits you.

Black Journal Insert | Bold and Bright

I thought I’d keep this journal reasonably simple and of course, flat so I can fit as much into my Traveler’s Notebook as possible.  This black journal from Prima has some really pretty foiled lettering which I’d like to match using Art Alchemy paints from Finnabair.  So grab a stencil, some metallic paints and let’s make this cover sparkle and shine!

SUPPLIES

The first look we are going to create is BRIGHT and BOLD using molding paste and paints.

The plain black journal insert is getting a rather colourful upgrade!  I’ve used Light Molding paste and a stencil, combined with some amazing art alchemy Metallique paints to really change the vibe of the journal cover.  Finish with a touch of gold wax and some splashes of Lindy’s sprays and your journal cover will shine.  I’ve shown you exactly how to do this for yourself in the video clip.  Now, this is a multi step process, so you may need to have a few coffee breaks while decorating your cover like this.

 

Believe me adding the gold wax paste as the final step completely transforms the look and brings it to life, just use a light touch and don’t add too much!

Floral Journal Insert | Girly Collage

For the floral journal, it’s already super pretty it just needs to be personalized a little, this is a great opportunity to play with ‘pretty’ things and create a collage on the front that works in with the journal cover.  For this cover, I’m going to play with some collage papers and washi embellishments from Jane Davenport!

SUPPLIES

I couldn’t help myself – I’ve been itching to use some of my Jane Davenport collage papers and thought that this was the perfect way to start – doesn’t it make the Prima journal insert look cool and fun!  All it took was a little washi tape, a little cutting and a swish or two with a few paint pens and there you have it, custom cover!   Don’t worry I’ve explained everything in the video step-by-step.

If you are new to art or journals you might like to leave your cover right here.

BUT, if you’re feeling a little more adventurous and would like to customise your cover further try adding a soft halo of Light Patina Metallique paint and some drops of Liquitex ink, there are so many options when decorating your own covers!  In person the shimmer on the metallique paint is stunning!

Kraft Journal Insert | Vintage

This is screaming vintage theme, so let’s go with that!   There are so many fabulous vintage ephemera pieces available in the Lulu art shop that I’m kind of spoiled for choice but I’ve managed to narrow it down to some stamps, vintage papers and a whole lot of Tim Holtz!

SUPPLIES

Oh, this was fun – though a little more challenging than my usual collages as I was trying to keep everything very flat.  All you really need to create this is some vintage papers, vintage ephemera, and a little distress ink.  This cover is all about Tim – Tim Holtz products that is – and what a great way to finish my trio of decorated travelers notebook inserts!  The kraft coloured notebooks are perfect for vintage or travel themed layouts or styles

Up close you can see there is a hint of glitter.

 

Go grab your favourite supplies from Kylie over at Lulu Art and get decorating!

 

Colour Me Positive – Week 27

Welcome to Week 27. This week is all about The One You Love.

couple-260899_960_720

Wouldn’t life be sooooo much easier if everyone had that special someone in their life. Someone whose presence made you feel safe, calm, loved and at peace. Your Solace. Someone that loves every part of you, the good, the bad and the weird. Someone who listens with great interest, supports your dreams, treats you like the most important person in their life, respects you, believes in you, showers you with cuddles and loves being with you. Someone who makes you feel special.

So my friends, this is what I truly wish for you. May you have someone in your life that makes your life brighter. Someone that makes the expression ‘coming home’ be about being with them.

Extra Challenge:

For an extra challenge this week I want you to include a home/house in your work. Try and include images or text that represent all the things you would love to see in the person you love.

For those of you who would like daily or alternative prompts, I have prepared a Daily Journal Prompt List. You can find it in the Facebook Group under Files.
