heart spread

Hey guys, how are we enjoying “Your Stuff… Use It!” – Art Journal week?

I am multitasking, and worked in my Art Journal on a spread I am doing for Effy Wild‘s BOM/BOD class.  This is the week 2 BOM.

2013-09-10 20.32.35A

In this one (so far) I have used acrylic paint, deli paper, a rubber stamp, black ink, and white chalk stamp pad.  I also used a sharpie, charcoal and embossed lettering, but I blurred it out again.  (To maintain privacy).

So, have you been art journaling this week? With things you already own? What have you come up with? Leave a link in the comments so we can come check out your page… 🙂

red and pink experiment

This was one of those projects… I started it around valentines day as a test to play with my new Sew Easy.  So the base was pink.  And then I went of on a rabbit trail.  When I got back around to it, I had to stay within the pink and red (and a little white) theme.  This is the result.  It’s not bad.  Got a little bit of everything on it.  I do like the stitching.  The bead charm is my favorite though.

Failed Art Journal Page?

So, a while ago I was working in my art journal.  And I mostly liked it.  But I felt that the pictures really stuck out, and I wanted to make it have a more ‘blended’ feel.  So I decided an over all stamp on the whole page would do this.  So on a red and green page, I chose to use white.  Rookie mistake.  So, not sure what to do from there, I put it aside, and have been brooding over it for months.  Here it is…

A red hot mess… So then one day it hit me.  What about an all over glaze? I could use a neutral colour, and bring the extremes closer together.  So I mixed some liquid gloss with a tiny bit of white paint, and covered the entire page.  And it did make it more cohesive.  But it washed everything out.  So I re-wrote the quote, outliked the pictures and added some doodle.  I am still not completly in love with it, but I think it’s much better.  And I learned A LOT of lessons I can use for next time… and isn’t that whaat it’s all about?

The After….
