A patchwork art journal spread with Daniëlle

Hi guys,

Daniëlle here to show you what I’ve created for the current color challenge. I love broght and bold colors so this months moodboard made me really happy!

As you all know I am a big fan of art journaling so I created this patchwork art journal spread:

First I created the patches with velvets (Desire, Taxi cab and Shamrock). Later on I added Canary yellow shine on the yellow patch for some difference in surface. Next I used a stencil and Kelly green shine on the red patch & a different stencil and desire velvet on the yellow patch. I filled the green patches with a nice text and a tulip stamp (which I colored with kelly green shine and ferrari sorbet). Do a little doodling and your page is complete!

 

Here ar some extra pics of the pages:

Have a good, creative day!

Beautifully Aged by Toni

Hi everyone, Toni here with a quick post to encourage you to create even when you are limited on supplies. Alot of times us crafters feel like we have to have everything on the market in order to create something wonderful (I’m guilty of this myself). Every color of paint, every embellishment, every paper line. Yes arts and crafts can be very costly. My project I created is a two page journal spread that I literally used 1 spray, 1 paint, gesso and rusted embellishments and papers that were handmade. Let’s get started. A great way to use what you have is go on the web and look for great pictures that include colors that you may have on hand so you are encouraged to use what is in your stash.  I fell in love with this photo of the old paint brushes which involved very limited palette of colors.   I first decided to rust up some papers and metal pieces to use in my art. In a bowl, combine Hydrogen Peroxide, Distilled Vinegar and Salt. Place items inside and allow to sit to rust. The papers took about 10 minutes and the metal pieces took about 30 minutes to 1 hour depending on the material they were made of.  You can check out my video on my Facebook page to see how I accomplished this. To add a bit of texture to the foundation I used Art Anthology Velvet in Tuxedo ran it through a stencil. The Snapguide tutorial below explains this in detail. Don’t allow limited access to art supplies to discourage your ability to play. “The world is but a canvas to your imagination” Henry David Thoreau

Colorful art journal page with Daniëlle

Hi Art Anthology fans!

Danielle here with an art journal page I created in my large journal.

If you want to create one yourself you can follow these steps:

  1. Add some color, using colorations sprays. Don’t cover the entire page.

2. Using limeaid velvet and the lattice stencil, add some texture.

3. Stamp some images on your page, just to make your background more interesting.

4. Using Fiesta velvet and the lotus stencil, add another layer of texture, this time in a different color.

5. While the page is drying, stamp and cut out a larger stamp on a different piece of paper. I used minx inks, mayan gold velvet and the pebbles velvet to color mine.

To finish my page I glued down the colored flower, drew a stem with leaves and stamped a text on a tag which I glued to my page as well. This is what the finished page looks like:

List of products I used:

Colorations spray: Avocado, Clover

Stencils: Lotus, Lattice, Pebbles

Velvet: LimeaidFiesta, Mayan Gold

Minx: Enchanting, Radiance

I look forward to see what you create!

Folk style Art Journal pages

Hello !

Valerie here with an another colorful art journal spread filled with Art Anthology mediums !

I started with a light background of Avocado Colorations spray, followed by stamp and Clover Colrations spray

This folk beauty is stamped on tissue paper and colored with markers, as well as the flowers on this journal ! I used the Glass Sorbet to adhere and protect it from smearing.

Before adhering the tissue paper, I used the Scales stencils in size 8×12 and 6×9 with Limeaid Velvet medium. I outlined the designs with a black pen to make it pop…

I f you would like to know more about my creative process, just watch the video tutorial here or on the AA YouTube channel :

Thank you for stopping by today and see you soon for another project !
