Art Journal Page 227

Hi everyone!

Today's page was based solely on using the StencilGirl stencils I'd received as being invited to be a guest blogger on their site. I used two of the three stencils I'd received for today's page.

I started off working on the background by applying acrylic paints with a wet baby wipe and I really loved the softness and the blending this technique gave the page. Then all I had to do was add the stencils and title and voila! Quick and easy and fun!

Blind 6 Challenge Art Journal Page - Simplicity

Hi everyone!

Today's blind 6 challenge involved adding a few more of one of the products I chose - the Magical powders!

So I 'blindly' chose tea dye distress oxide, stream Color Wash, emerald green FW acrylic ink, bundled sage distress ink reinker, cadmium yellow deep acrylic paint and bratwurst brown Magical powders!

This didn't seem like it was going to work!!! Until we decided to apply the magical powders using white Dylusions spray! When that magic happened we decided to use all the other colours of Magical powders I owned (I only own 5 LOL).

The effect was just so pretty that all we decided to do was add some black top and bottom borders, a bit of stencilling in black and a quote in black! Just love how this page turned out!!!

Liquitex Professional gesso

Art Journal Page - Blind 6 Challenge - Imagination

Hi everyone!

Today's journal page was done in my Dylusions Creative Journal and prompted by the 'blind 6' challenge. This is where I 'blindly' chose 6 different mediums to use on my page. They were the only products I could use except for gesso, texture paste, matte medium, etc, as well as stencils and stamps - you can also use any product black or white.

So today I blindly chose tissue wrap * lemon acrylic paint * yellow magicals powder * purple/blue spray * mermaid lagoon distress oxide * purple alcohol ink - what a mixture!!!! This was gonna be hard!

As I started putting down the products the page, and the colours, were starting to grow on me and I started having a bit of fun with it. I'm pretty happy with how the page ended up!
