Hi everyone!

I decided I'm really loving the whimsical look of journal pages and so I decided I would create a whole journal dedicated to whimsical houses and scenes. I've made notebook journals and have them sitting on my desk doing nothing so I decided to put them to good use.

This first page is fairly basic, with a background and a few elements on the page but that's it. I'm hoping that with practice I can create great pages using this whimsical theme.

Wish Big Journal Page

Hi everyone!

So today's stream I decided to use my watercolour journal (gifted to me by Zandra). I had no idea what I wanted to create on the page and just let the girls in the chat lead the way, which they did LOL.

So after adding my acrylic paints to the page Kathy and Eileen said I should try to use distress oxide inks over the acrylic. OK, challenge set LOL. I must say it looked awesome! I really love the different shades of brightness from the acrylics against the oxides!

Once we were happy with the background I thought it looked magical so decided to add a fairy! That done, I added a tree to the page then the title. Voila! All in an hour's time too! It really can be done LOL

Art Journal Page 204

Hi everyone!

I'm so so excited!!!! All my hard work trying to get the whites to actually appear white over the top of sprays has worked!!! So happy!

So I sprayed the page with yummy sprays, applied 5 coats of generic hair spray (fixative), applied a couple of coats of gel medium then clear gesso, sanded and applied another coat of clear gesso. Yes, it is a lot of work but if it actually does the trick, I'll do it! I can have multiple pages on the go and have them at the ready for later :)

So when the first page worked I was so excited I didn't even create a layout as such on the page, just a few white gesso sponged circles and some text written with a POSCA paint pen - just to see if it worked.









So then I started on a fresh page, applying the same process, then created a layout!
