Art Journal Page


Hi everyone!

I got excited about an Art Journal end of last year.  I was made so many art journal pages on this year and I really love those possibilities, so I got a idea to make a art journal page for you!

I am also sharing instructions for you!


This is my ready page!  I created with many different materials and shapes — lots of steps!

I took my art journal book and open a side–Then I glued masking tape on joint, after that I put a layer of white Gesso.


I took a old book and tore many pages, as needed!    Next, I glued, part of pages on my art journal book with light medium or decoupage varnish. You must dry it at this point.


I took a little bit of yellow paint, I choice was Distress Paint, then I took baby wipes and spread all paint to page.   You really need so little amount of paint!   Old book pages still show behind paint.


I selected a stencil and started make shapes with textured paste on corner.   I selected flowers.   You must let shapes to dried a long time after that.  Then you can make little bit “harder” work for page later.


I took stamps and stamped for page–Use your imagination!




Next, I stamped typewriter and few words on patterned paper.   Quite light pattern paper, that you can read all words after stamping.  Then I cut out of shapes, . I colored every pictures with ink, then I mist only water.   It made the carton little bit soft and then I can made textured with crumpled.


I glued typewriter and text on page–I use some 3D stickers to made contrast.


Then I took a pencil. It can be any soft pencil, but I use soft watercolor pencil.  I drew every lines of flowers, after drawing I took a small paintbrush and did again every line with water.  It made more effect.


I stamped many letters with black ink on page-Like letters flew on!


Last, but don´t least–I used  white paint pen and make some shapes on letters and flowers.



Yes, now my art journal page is ready.  Do you like it?  Are you never make a art journal work?
