Through the Leaves – Mixed Media Art Journal Page

20190519_163844-2.jpgHello Lulu Art peeps!

Dani here again…were you expecting Kate?

She is having a blast, on holidays in Canada, so I am here for another video. Today’s page follows directly on from my last video… using my palette paper. You have probably seen that I use a large journal under all my small ones as a palette? This makes it so easy to begin a new background and use all that left over paint. Lulu Art has a 10″ x 14″ Dina Wakley Media Journal that would be prefect size for this!!DW-352284-2I am using Dina’s new 2019 range. Pastel paints and scribble sticks – set 3, along with the ‘Branches’ mask and stencils.

Again, I am mixing all the new range with the older ranges. They are perfectly matched to do this and the new sets add so much tonal depth to the page – I am really loving all these new additions.

I also grab one of Dina’s collage tissue faces to use as a focal point

Full list of supplies used follows the blog post. Instructional captions are throughout the video.

Enjoy watching!

Hello again Lulu Art!
Have you taken a look at the New Dina Wakley products that Kylie has in store yet?… seriously AMAZING!

So I thought I would have a play

20190519_135147.jpg

The new square 6×6 watercolour journal and the new pastel paint range are both so easy to use with the existing bright heavy body acrylic range… I started the page with one of Dina’s stencils called ‘Wallpaper’

Next, I cracked open a favourite… the Collage Collective collage book….

DW-568519-2

If you love Dina’s work, you will not be disappointed with this journal fodder. Be warned though…the only thing you may have trouble with is actually cutting it up, as this collage book is beautiful just as it is!! – (I had to have one for keeps and one for using with this one!! )

Hope you have fun having a quick flick through during the video!

Flower Girl – Mixed Media Art Journal page

IMG_20190425_213052 (1)Always great to be back at Lulu Art! I hope everyone has been able to find some arty time in the last month?

Today I wanted to showcase Kylie’s fabulous face stencils from Artistcellar. I chose the 3/4 face ‘JOY’ for this small art journal page. These face stencils make journaling faces so quick and easy… more time for journaling and less time for stessing about face math and getting my proportions correct. Kylie has done almost all the work for you… yay!

I am also using some of StudioLight’s, Art by Marlene Signature Collection 3.0 in this video aswell… the texture plate and the HANDY size small journal. This collection will be coming to Lulu Art very soon… so keep your eye out for all the new goodies!

But that is not all… Darkroom Door’s great polka dot stencil, Dina Wakley Media – new colours and Prismacolor pencils get a work out as well.

So I hope you enjoy watching what I get up to this month.

Full list of all the supplies will follow this post.

Have fun watching!

Enjoy!

Wow! April is almost here… 2019 is flying by! Makes the time that I spend creating all the more precious.

I had super fun this month, really enjoying the end results of my page.

I started with Dina Wakley Media – wallpaper – stencil in fuschia on a tangerine background. I then collaged a fab napkin that I had found with gold foil spots.

DWK-343164-2T

Next, I had a play with some texture paste flowers through an Art by Marlene stencil by The Crafter’s Workshop – TCW691 – Songful Flowers

Once I had those done… the Christine Adolph flower stamps by Prima just took over!

PR-364406-2Hope you enjoy how my page turned out as much as I did.

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.

Perfect Attitude – Mixed Media Art Journal Page

Hello again, sweet Lulu Art peeps!

20181202_163334b

It has been hectic in our household this last few weeks with the wrap up of the school year. My girls finish school tomorrow though! (Cheering… can’t wait for the holidays!!).

So I grabbed a few moments to unwind this weekend and put together this page with a few supplies I picked up at Lulu Art.

I never really know where I am heading when I start out on an art journey. I just begin with a bundle of goodies and one of the many Dylusions journals. I try to slap some paint down pretty quickly so I don’t get any chances to overthink what I am doing. I choose whichever colour speaks to me on the day. The Dina Wakley ~ Fuschia has been calling my name a lot lately!

TCW-487706-2T

With this page, I rough stencilled over with lime green using the ‘Blooming Garden’ stencil by TCW. I can see that this will be one of my favourites for a while… all those pretty flowers just make a lovely background. I next painted with my sponge through the stencil to highlight each of the stencils features.

background (2)

Washi was next… anyone else is addicted to washi? I have so many of these little rolls of goodness and take any opportunity to get them out. This pink dot on green roll is from the #4 Dina Wakley washi set and it didn’t disappoint!
(The #3 set is equally as great… #justsayin !!)

So once I could see two big round flowers, the page took on a life of its own… you can check out the finished page and the process video below.

Enjoy watching !

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.

cradled board

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.

butterfly 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.
