Decorate your Dylusions Journal with Kathryn Cruise

LuluArt profile picHello there lovelies, Kathryn here. I hope you are having a wonderful year so far. I’m absolutely loving seeing everyones Colour Me Positive challenge pages in the facebook group. It’s so wonderful to see everyone having so much fun and sharing their pages. The support and encouragement everyone gives is heart warming and fantastic to see.

It’s Design Team project time and I decided it was time to do something on my Dylusions Art Journal cover. I had some crazy fun with this project and I am very surprised and pleased with the results. Mind you the end result is not even close to what I had planned but I absolutely love it anyway. I hope you enjoy watching my video and would love to hear what you think.

Birds Flying High – an art journal page by Robyn Wood

RobynAn art journal page using a random,  messy, Gelli print background ~ 

Hello, it’s Robyn joining you today to share a mixed media art journal page. I have to admit to being a huge fan of Michael Buble, I’ve seen him in concert each time he has visited Australia. When I started playing with this project, as usual I had no idea in mind just started playing with images and backgrounds – popping the birds on the page caused these lyrics from Feeling Good to come to mind.

The song itself is such a happy one, check out the lyrics online if you aren’t sure how it goes. I think it also describes the practice of mindfulness – enjoying all the little things in life by taking notice.

What are you feeling good about today? Take notice of one small, good thing and think about it for a few minutes. You will be glad you did!


I started with a tiny cheat for creating this page – the basis of the background was already done during a long past Gelli printing session. I tend to keep an art journal and scrap paper close to mop up all the extra paint from my plate in between prints. These pages become starting points for future pages.  I’ve learnt that for best results I keep to one set of colours, either warm or cool with maybe a pop of a complementary colour if it seems to work.
