Art journal Page by Lisa Rabellino

Hi creative souls!
Lisa today on the blog to share with you my new art journal page playing with beautiful Rubber Dance stamps and watercolors!

To start I glued some pieces of book page and I brushed a coat of clear gesso.

Then with a spatula I added white gesso ti create white spaces on my page.

I finished my background with some paper doilies and so I colored with my favorite watercolors.

Once dry I made stamping with Mix A Sentiment #2 and Textured Flowers stamps set and archival inks.

I made splatters with white liquid paint and I stamped some flowers on a piece of white cardstock, I cutted them and glued on my page.
With Journal Words stamp set I chose my sentiment and finally I made other splatters with teal liquid paint.

Here some close up photos:

I used these stamps from the store:

Textured Flowers

Journal Words

I hope you enjoyed my inspiration today!
Hugs, Lisa

Sea Creatures recycled booklets by Ellie Knol

Today two recycled booklets I will use as mini art journals, from me, Ellie Knol.

I´ve used the Whale Wishes and the Fish Diet stamp sets.. 

I dissembled the books first, and got rid of both the original end papers inside as that was torn by doing so... 

... leaving me with the cover plus spine intact.. 

.. I covered the outside by adhering part of an A4 gelliprint with muted pink and greenish colors (using a Magenta stencil in case you wonder) .... 

... I brushed some matte medium to the surface to give it some protection...  

.. stamped onto it with StaZon blazing red ink..

.. gave it some extra color with green distress ink.. 

.. added some white with an acrylic marker... 

.. and reassembled the booklets using the second and second last page of the book to use as the new end papers on the inside...

Hope you like it and give recycling a book a try.. it´s fun..

Mandala Art Journal Page by Angie Coomber

Hi Everyone!

How are you? I was back at work for the first time in 10 weeks last week, what a shock to the system!

My project for you today is a lace cut (is that the right word?) mandala page and it's really not as tricky as it might look.

First I painted a very simple background with my fingers, just patches of colour (light pink, cerise, orange & turquoise).

I added some background stamping using the Mixed A Sentiment #2 and Grungy Borders stamp sets.
I also added some stencilling, using the same paint colours (but forgot to take a photo!)

I cut a black piece of card the same size as my journal page, marked the centre of the page on one of the long edges and use a compass to draw (half) circles from the inside to the outside. I didn't use any particular masurements for this. Next I created the sections.

I drew some simple leave shapes first and then filled in the gaps with very simple squares, triangles, rectangles. If you're worried about making mistakes, fill in the shapes you want to cut out. 
Also, make sure that your shapes are not too close to any of the edges.

Once I was happy with the design I used a craft knife to cut out all of the shapes (make sure your blade is nice and sharp).

I stamped some of the flowers from the Textured Flowers set onto white card and coloured them in, using water colours and pencils.

I turned over the lace design and glued it to the background, then adhered some of the flowers and a quote.

Finally I added white dooling around all of the shapes.

Give it a try - it's really satisfying!

Hugs from Angie x
