Make it Happen – Mixed Media Art Journal Page

20190811_172852 (2)_wm2080259875355399293..jpg

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!

Enjoy!!

Live Gently – Mixed Media Art Journal Page

20190519_162636.jpgHello once again Lulu Art peeps!

The video this week is the third and last in a series of three.

They all used Dina Wakley new release products. The new 6×6 white journal along with the pastel colours in the heavy body acrylic especially but also the wonderful ‘Branches’ stencil & mask set (LOVE this one!!)

All three of these pages were done in the one sitting.

This is how I would usually work, flipping between pages, using pages as palettes and then those same palette pages as backgrounds as I move along. I hardly ever have a plan to begin ( aside from what products I will begin using) and I basically just create problems with the paint and then try and reconcile those problems to some kind of solution.

On this day, this particular page was the first that I created. It is short, sweet & simple in its solution. I hope you enjoy the video.

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

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!

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)

TCW-1114-2T

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.

stencil2

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!
