Butterfly – Mixed Media Art

Hello everyone!

This month I thought I would create something out of my journal for a change. I had noticed some great 8×8″ cradled wood boards that Kylie has in store and thought I would give them a go.

I really love working on such a smooth surface! Quite different from a canvas, I enjoy how sturdy and versatile the working area is. It takes collage and pencil work very well and really does just leave it up to your imagination as to what you can create.

I also wanted to try out the beautiful Darkroom Door – 9×12 butterflies stencil.

These come in 2 different sizes (4.5×6″ & 9×12″) but I really loved the size of this large one. I can see this one being used quite a bit as I explore the positive & negative spaces that the stencil/mask combination allows.

So, along with some collage fodder… off I adventured!

Enjoy watching the video!
Hope you give this journal page a try.

Hearts & Flowers – Mixed Media Art Journal Page

jungle11.jpgHello lovelies!!

Are you all totally crushing as hard as I am on Marlene Meijer-van Niekerk new range that Kylie has in store at Lulu Art currently? I just had to feature another of her stencils in this month’s tutorial… and one of her new rubber stamps aswell…

… LOVING THEM !!

Using Dina Wakley heavy body acrylics in Eggplant, Ocean, Turquoise and Sedona, I started my page with a different colour combination than I would usually. A bit of stenciling and rubber stamping around the edges of my page began to flesh out where I wanted to go with the colours.

Cheddar Scribble stick brought it all together and I finished with some hearts and doodles and finally some sweet words using Tim Holtz Ideaology stickers.

Blossom – Mixed media art journal page

Hello lovelies!!

A super quick journal page today, especially for anyone who is a little shy about drawing.

I thought I would put together a page using Jane Davenport’s ‘Whimsical Girls’ book that you can purchase from Lulu Art.

The book is designed with tear out pages and different types of paper so you can work right onto them and cut them out, add them to your journal pages, or in fact, journal right within the book… so many pretty images to choose from!

whimsy book
I was also itching to use TCWs new mini botanical stencil designed by Marlene Meijer-van Niekerk. Lulu Art now has the full range of Marlene’s new products and I can’t wait to get my hands on those either.

I have already made a number of pages with this stencil… just so pretty!

Finally, I added Christine Adolf’s ‘Poppyfield’ stamp by Prima.
