Art Journalling

Art Journalling in 2013

A New Year and a start to keeping an art journal/diary.

I decided to make an art journal that reflects what I do each week with my crafting.

I used Dylusions dyes to colour the pages and stamped various images using Gina K and Dylusions stamps.
The days and month were printed on the computer and added to the page.
Hopefully I will be able to keep up my entries in this journal.

Recently, I acquired a series of DVDs on Art Journalling presented by Kate Crane.

These have inspired me into a different creative pathway and I intend to show here some of the pages I have created along my journey.

Every Possibility

For this page, I used Dylusions spray inks to produce the colour on the page. Very vibrant colours they are too!

The images are all stamps from Hero Arts and Stampers Anonymous which were stamped with Ranger Archival ink. I used white gel pen on the lettering, flowers and leaves.

The border is a stencil from Dylusions and I used Black Soot Distress ink to make the pattern.

This is an old engagement diary that I found in the art cupboard. It had some lovely flower prints by Nancy Tichbourne. I decided to use the flower prints as part of the overall design.

The stamped sentiment is from Stampers Anonymous (Dyan Reveley) and I used acrylic paints for the backgrounds and stenciled images. I also used some stamps on the backgroun with Archival ink, which works really well on painted backgrounds as well!

For this double page, I used a sketch book that I had in the cupboard. Painted the backgrounds with acrylic paints, stamped the images and sentiment with archival black ink.

The stamps are from Paper Artsy.

I really enjoyed doing this page!

I used olive shades and beige to do the backgrounds, adding in touches of yellow and black.

The image is from a sheet of tag images that I had in my stash and I cut it out and glued it to the box in the centre.

Used white gel pen to add the highlighting touches. The sentiment is from Stampers Anonymous as is the spotty stamp.

Wow Janet! These are really great art journaling pages especially for a first attempt. Isn't it wonderful how our love of papercraft takes on such interesting diversions and best of all, there are no dead ends! Looking forward to seeing more great creations! xx
