Scapbooking on Art Journal book

Hi your lovely crafters!

It´s time to say goodbye to a2z Scrapbooking DT team. I started on team over 1.5 years ago. Time went so fast. This was a big and great honor to have been part of the team. Our team is so lovely and creative. I hope for you all best wishes and lots of creative time. I hope you will visit on my blog in the future.

My last inspiration is scrapbooking for an Art Journal book. So I want to make a page just for you!! I hope that you like this…and of course you try it too!!! You can link it in the comments if you do.

I started with step-by-step photos.

I have a art journal book from Prima. It includes white and kraft pages.

Texture on Tag!

Hi again! Taru is here!

My friend sold me on a new idea: make an album with big tags (Rangers bigs or to do it yourself.) The idea is to make some experiments on tags!! And it will be a funny album with crazy pages. So I start my project today! I made my first tag in my album. Let’s look at it!

My tag is the biggest kraft Dylusions Journaling tag (#12 size)! I paint my tag with 2 different browns (regular paint) and a dry brush. I tried to make it look like an “old board wall“.

June14TaruJehkonenPhase1

June14TaruJehkonenPhase2

I dried the paint. I took two different stencils and used matte extra heavy gel medium (Amsterdam). I made some shapes with a palette knife, stencils and gel medium on tags. Not perfect but clear shapes from the stencil. Then I let it dry.

June14TaruJehkonenPhase3June14TaruJehkonenPhase4

It took couple hours to dry. But if you don´t have a time, you can use a heat gun! Now this work looks horribly messy!

June14TaruJehkonenPhase5

Then I took Golden Fluid acrylic teal and arcylic glazing liquid. I put them mix and used it on my page. Glazing Liquid let me take more time for working. I waited a couple minutes and then I started wiping teal paint off (with baby wipes and paper towels). Be careful and don´t press too hard on the background.

June14TaruJehkonenPhase6

After all the work, it is so amazing and a perfect effect on the tag!!

Art Journal with flowers

NOTICE: It looks like we’re having a bit of trouble with our InLinkz Link-up on our blog. It seems to have a mind of its own and disappeared from the side-bar. However, it found a home on the first day of March here. The DT are trying to put it back where it came from, but until you see it in the usual place on the top right side, you’ll be able to enter here

Hi again!

I was playing with my art journal book yesterday. I tend to clean the tools and remaining materials onto an empty art journal page.  That forms interesting beginnings. First I took this kind of a page. I started to make the site ready.

March14XTaruJehkonenX1

Then I stamped few flowers on watercolor paper. I colored flowers with watercolor pencils. I cut the flowers out.

March14XTaruJehkonenX2

Then I gathered together the flowers with 3D foam tape. Just like you now see, I cut small parts of the flowers out of big flowers. This will make a great effect for flowers.

March14XTaruJehkonenX3

I glued the flowers on the page.

March14XTaruJehkonenX4

I doodling around flowers with fine pencil.

March14XTaruJehkonenX5

I made shapes with stencil on page.

March14XTaruJehkonenX6

I like doodling on every work – almost. Then I made frame on page with sharpie.

March14XTaruJehkonenX7

I found a magnificent aphorism and I stamped that on page for the last thing.

March14XTaruJehkonen4

Now the page is ready!! Do you like it?
