Art Journal Page: Be merry


Hi everyone!

I made art journal pages for you today. Hope your like this.  A little Christmas spirit in my art journal.


I took step by step photos on my work. Enjoy!

I made this page for my pretty small art journal book.  The open pages measures 11¨ x 3,5¨.


First I adhere pages from an old book onto the art journal with soft gel.


When page is dried then I cut off all the extra bits.


I put a couple layers acrylic paint with palette knife.  Let first layer dried before adding the second.



Then I add more texture with stencil and paint.


When the paint had dried, then I took a lovely snowflake stamp and stamped on pages.


I stamped some splashes and dots with VersaMark. Then I heat embossed with fine white embossing powder!


I found one pieced of red tone paper which I made with Gelli Plate. I stamped a few penguins on that paper. After that I cut the penguins with cutting die.


I put a lot of snow on page. Snow-tex is just perfect for this. It made very rich and nice texture.


I glued a couple penguins with 3D stickerts and onto the page.



I wanted some text on the page. So I starting planning…

First I stamped on same red tone paper. Cut shape on edge and start doodling on that.


Then I thought  I need some pillar for my sign. So I cut some and doodled on that.


Now I glued all the rest onto the page.  It is ready!
