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.

Scrapbook Page — Brushes!!

Hello!

Today I created a  scrapbook page with stamps and stencils.   I really love the photo that I’m sharing in my Layout.   It has a lot of details and shows you some of my favorite “brushes”, as well as some of my favorite Hero Stamped backgrounds!

May14_Taru

I added more to the design with patterned paper and stamps.   I also used stencils with my Hero Arts Shadow Inks.   The colors are Pool and Soft Cantaloupe, which were added with Blending Tools.

Dream

Happy Valentine´s Day to everyone!

Now it’s time to have fun with colors and embossing powder.

Take a look at my scrapbook page:

Feb14Taru

First I took one white craft cardstock and layered it with gesso. When the gesso dried I sprayed it with four different colors to create my background. The colors that I used were Hero Arts Butter Bar, Neon Purple, Green Hills and Cup O’ Joe.

Before the ink spray dried, I sprayed a lot of water on the background. Then I turned the panel on its side so that the colors drip off the paper. I dried the paper with my heat gun. The page looks amazing!! I love that color on background!

Then I took stencils, ink and white embossing powder and made shapes with the stencil randomly over my background. It created dimension on the page.

Feb14Taru1234

After adding embossing powder, I stamped different shapes on background with India black ink. Behind the photo I cut a few papers. I made layers and contrast with the 3D stickers and drew lines on the papers with black a pencil.

Feb14Taru12

I stamped the title “Dream” with an alphabet stamp and die cut flags. It made an awesome title on this page with black thread tangle.

Life in 60’s – scrapbook layout by Taru

Hi everyone.

Here is Taru today! I made a layout using lots of Hero Arts goodies and I used a photo which breathes the spirit of 60´s, I tried to move that spirit into my layout. In the picture you can see my parents. 

Nov29Taru

I chose a big flower stencil and spread brown ink through it to the background. Then I drew lines of the stencil with pencil. And of course some random doodling. I stamped some circle shapes with Charcoal ink. I tried to make a circular and irregular stamping to the paper. Then I stamped a lot of Love-stamp. I added some splashes with sprays. I also made lots of layers with pattern papers behind of photo. Some papers are attached with glue and some with 3D stickers. I stamped more shapes, wrote my journaling (really, really short journaling) and did the title with stickers.

Did you know you can use stamps to make embellishments? On this layout I stamped and cut out that pen and the ink bottle. Somehow those two fits perfectly to this layout! I finished the layout with few sequins.

Summer layout with Taru

 Hello all it’s Taru here with my first post for the  a2z Scrapbooking blog. I’m so excited!

I made a scrapbook layout with a stamped background. This is how it looked when I started to build my page.

Nov14Taru3

And this is how it turned to be. Quite nice, isn’t it!

Nov14Taru

The background is made with three different stamps, I took tones and shades from my picture. Then some black stamping too, to get more contrast onto my page.

This layout tells a story about my hair last summer – my hairdresser really did her best to make my hair look so finished and detailed.
