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.

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.

Three Blooms – Mixed Media Art Journal Page

Hello again lovelies!!1535889847258794319376.jpgMy little Dylusions dyalog journal is helping me out this month again… such a great size for quick art!

This month, I just had to use the Art by Marlene’s ‘Circular Doodles’ background stamp again (LOVE it!!) and I added in Dina Wakley’s ‘Text & Scribbles’ stamp set aswell.

Only a little stencil work, even though my stencil stash is growing by the minute with all the pretty new stencils Kylie has been getting in recently! This page used TCW’s ‘Swirly Garden’ by Julie Fei-Fan Balzer (TCW325s)

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.

cheddar.pngReally there isn’t much more to it than that!

Blossom – Mixed media art journal page

Hello lovelies!!

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

blossom4

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.

Have fun and hope you give this journal page a try.

Enjoy!!

Poppies – Journal Page by Monika Dabrowska-Ejmont

MonikaI love poppy flowers, they are always taking me back to my childhood. I remember our veggie patch in which grandma just spread poppy seeds randomly and they were growing between carrots, potatoes, strawberries. Always standing taller than the rest of the plants on their hairy green stems. Bright, bold and also so fragile.

Then in autumn they were turning in to brown, rattling hard heads, still beautiful in their own way. And then Christmas time we had a delicious poppy seed cake. I wish I was good at painting realistic flowers…or animals …. or anything. But since I am not :)) I just used this Ronda’s fragment stencil to create poppies with a twist. There is still red and green and brown and black, all the colours I remember from childhood, so it makes me happy. And my kitty was there to help me to recreate the childhood feelings and also make new happy memories.

I Am Grateful – a Journal Page by Monika Dabrowska-Ejmont

MonikaIt’s the end of the year already!  Really?!!  It snuck up on me! Too fast! Too quick! So much happened this year, so much changed! I learnt a lot, I pushed my boundaries a few times and I grew from it 🙂 I acquired lots of new art supplies too :), one new kitten 🙂 and I made new friends.

Did I make time to stop and reflect about it? To be thankful for what I have in my life? To cherish all the beautiful people in my life?  Not always, not everyday!  But I am trying to make it in to a good habit because it keeps me focused, keeps me sane, reminds me to be happy now!

Art keeps me sane and happy too, so I thought – why not combine both and create myself a reminder of how amazing life really is 🙂  I have sooooo much to be grateful for every day, month, year!

Grateful_Dec2014

For me my Journal is a perfect place for it as I am spending lots of time flicking through it, playing, writing in it.
Maybe it is something you would like to do too ?
