Love Rocks Journal Page

Hi everyone! Today I would like to share with you how to brighten the pages of your journal with all the beautiful colors available in Art Anthology Colorations!

I “build up” my journal pages as I go rather than doing them all at once. Most backgrounds I achieve come from “clean ups”. This is simply accomplished by laying journal page on craft mat to pick up inks and sprays left and dripped from other projects. I fond this technique to make for some really unique and beautiful backgrounds.

Here are a few more pictures to show some detail!!


For this journal page several steps were done over a period of several days.

Art Anthology Products used:

Colorations Sprays:


Waimea Bay



Sorbet – Coral

Minx – Immaculate

Minx – Enchanting (diluted with water)

Stencil – Let’s face it

Other products:

White, teal, purple and clear embossing powders


Black Archival Ink


Aqua black Stabilo pencil

I hope you have enjoyed this journal page project I created. Happy Creating!!

Hello AA lovers !

Valerie again with a new mixed media project ! I altered an odd journal to create a giftable journal…

This journal had a black cover with a silver bunny head on it, so I just applied gesso all over it, back and front, to start working on it. Some Waimea Bay spray for the background, stencil with Metallic gold effects paint and Brick stone effects paint to add dimension, plus some stamping, and the book was ready to be embellished…


Few flowers, microbeads and thread and a stamped title painted with Aloha and Desire Velvet paints… You will find the list of Art Anthology products I used at the bottom of this post.

Step by Step Journal Page

Hi Everyone! It’s Yasmin on the blog today and this time I have a journal page to show you.

I made a small tutorial on how to make this page.. This is how you do:

I used papers with a kitchen theme for may page, since it’s about eating breakfast.. hehe, so It needed that theme. Cut the papers into small pieces in different sizes, and glue them randomly on the page. Perfect to use leftover papers.

Add a thin layer of Gesso on topp. Does not have to cover all, just a bit on top.

Use a stencil with Art Antoholgy Velvet – Persimmon on each of the pages and let it dry,

Take a different stencil and apply som Art Anthology Velvet – Limeaid on top of the Persimmon velvet. Remember to do it on both sides.

Use a frame stamp and stamp it on a piece of paper. Decorate the egdes with Art Anthology Dimensional Crystals – Blizzard and use Pickle to make small pearls of the paint.

Add some doily, strips of pattern paper and glue on your picture. I distressed all the edges with Vintage photo distress ink and splatted on som Art Anthology Colorations – Warm on top. Voila! A finished journalpage!

Thanks for visiting us today and have a happy crafty day! 🙂
