Hello lovelies!!
A pretty journal page today, playing around in my medium size, Art by Marlene 3.0 journal.

Began with a new stencil, for me, by The Crafter’s Workshop – TCW812 – Coronet Wreath. I sponged half crescents up the page in a variety of blues. It created a really pretty, but simple background for the page

Next, I used a variety of Art by Marlene products that you can get from Lulu Art Store. Collage papers, die cut books, stampBM20 – ‘feathers’ , ‘whimsy & bright’ watercolor set and also one of Marlene’s newer stamp set designs from her 3.0 collection – ‘Bohemian Flowers’

The video takes you through how I set up and created the page. I really enjoyed how it turned out… bright and cheery! I also loved that I got to use my sewing machine on this page, just a little. This is one of the benefits of a loose paged art journal like Art by Marlene offers… so great to be able to pull a page out and sew. A few loose threads here and there are always so pretty!

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.

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.
