Just Delightful – Mixed Media Art Journal Page

So lovely to be back here at Lulu Art for 2019… !!

Back into my journal again… and you know I love to splash the paint around in there!
So… considering that I will be working closely with the “Art by Marlene” brand this year and Lulu Art stocks such a wide range of her lovely products, I thought I would grab one of her stencils, and a couple of Studio Light stamps in her range and see where we end up.

First I scribbled on some Liquitex black gesso (a staple for me) and then went at it with this gorgeous TCW (The Crafter’s Workshop) stencil TCW811 – floral statement

TCW-487707-2TUsing Dina Wakley heavy body acrylics in cheddar, eggplant, fuschia and turquosie I set to working up a background.

Then with these two stamps, I created this little story.

No Stress Art Journaling – Roses

Hello there fabulous Lulu Art fans and happy 2019!  Today I’m going to grab some beautiful paints, a stamp and stencil and of course my signature sparkles, and show you how to create this bright and bold art journal page!  It’s pretty, filled with simple techniques and really packs a punch of colour!

Now as with most things it’s easier to show to the process for this page rather than tell you about it – so I’ve made a short video to walk you through it all step by step.

Step 1

Cut 7 Dots Studio background paper to size (Homegrown) and then stamping with a Handwritten Text Stamp from Tim Holtz and Sandy Toes Squid Ink, then use Black Soot Distress Ink to add stripes with Shifter Stripe Stencil.

Step 2

Add tiny bits of paint to the background using a paint scraper, I used Jane Davenport Acrylics and Dina Wakley’s Magenta and Turquoise.

Step 3

Use Magenta and Dark Blue Paint with a flat brush to create the flower bases.  Add a second layer of Magenta to hide the background.

Step 4

Add a base layer of lime green to create the leaves and mix in a little of the blue paint to get a variety of green shades – it makes the leaves look more interesting.  Then use blue paint and a wet brush to edge the floral pattern.

Step 5

Splatter Distress Ink with water then blot with paper towel and begin to add the details.  Begin by adding extra detail to the flowers, using a flat brush add pink to one side of brush and white to the other side and paint the petals.  Then make that page shimmer by using the Starry Colors set from Gansai Tambi – add Starry GOLD and magenta and silver Metallic Mermaid Markers!  Just watch the page begin to shimmer!  Flick the background with Starry Gold and also add this to the flowers.

Step 6

Cover the smile sticker with white paint, then add the sticker to the page and add more white paint (so it really pops) then cover with Nuvo Glitter Drops and add a few white Higgins Drawing Ink paint drips to break up the background.

Step 7

Also, embellish flower with Nuvo Glitter Drops.

Step 8

Add doodling and outlines to the flowers and leaves with Paint Markers.

And the Make you SMILE style page is finished!  I hope it makes YOU smile 🙂
