Junk Journal pages for Scrap FX

Hi everyone, today I am back to share some more of my pages that I have created in the Junk Journal for Scrap FX Design Team.



This one is out of my comfort Zone - I dont warm to the blues and greens but am pleased with how this simple page came out.  I have used the Demure Face Stencil and black gesso.


I have used Paper Artsy paints in blue and yellow and then once dry pink over the top.  Using the Polygonic stencil I have then wiped away some of the paint leaving some fun marks on the page.  The flowers are  from the Build A Stamp Set which I have painted with golden paints.  The leaves are heart set stamps.  The quote is from the Art Words tranparency.



This page was what I call a "cheat page".  The junk journal already came with this premade gelli paper so I only had to add a black Mandala and a quote from the Art Words Transparency.  I find pages like this one, and the next one are great to use a mojo starters.


This is a small transparent piece of paper in the Junk Journal which I have simply added the coffee Love Stencil with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.


I have coloured the dictionary paper with acrylic paint, added some washi tape, Jane Davenport eyes and a Dina Wakley Collage Words saying.


This page I have paints the background with Paper Artsy paints and then using the Silhouette Ladies Stencil/Mask and some black distress ink, blocked out some of the background.  I have added some visual texture by stamping with the Mandala Stamp.


This page was inspired by a circle page I saw Lisa Oxley do. I have used the Mandala Stamp inside the circles which I created with the circle stencil.  Some more stamping with a brighter colour using the triangle stamp and adding the black and white butterflies.  
I hope that you have enjoyed these few pages.  This is now the half way mark in my junk journal and I am excited to keep going - will share some more pages at a later date.

Til then - happy creating.

Junk Journal pages for Scrap FX Design Team

Hi there - I while back I did a the cover of an art journal page in a class Michelle Logan held in Melbourne - well this month I am going to fill that art journal and share with you now and in a couple of weeks the pages.
Here is the front of the junk journal:


Today here are four pages that I have done


Below I will go through each page and the products used:


I was inspired by everyone doing the circle challenge - and who doesnt love a circle or two!!  I have used Paper Artsy paints in the background as well as some of the awesome new index tabs.  I have painted the circles in and then stamped around the page with the triangle stamp.  The saying has been cut from the art phrases transparency


For this page - the other side of the tabs from the previous page are showing. and I have used yellow, orange and pink paints to match.  I have also cut out some circles from the index tabs to place around the page.

Again the transparency has been used for the quote.  The paint brush stencil is an oldie but certainly a favourite.


I created a very busy background with Dina Wakely paints and some stamps - Triangle Collage StampsFilm Strip StampStitching Stamps.  I have then placed the Silhouette Ladies Stencil/Mask and using Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink around the edges to create the image.  The Live Spontaneously has been cut from the Art Words Transparency


I loved creating this page.   I began randomly placing the index tabs around the layout and then added colours using Golden paints.  I have then used the circle stencil to draw some circles and using black paint to block out the background.  Again the words are from the Art Words Transparency.

I hope that you have enjoyed these few pages and I shall be back soon to share some more.

art journal page and two tags for Scrap FX

Hi everyone, today I would like to share an art journal page and two tags that I have created.


I am a lover of bright colours and have created this out of space art journal page.
I began creating the background using dylusion inks  Once dry I made some white circles with Titanium white paint.


I have coloured the circles, again with dylusions paints and a Stabilo All pencil.
I have used colour blast  paste and the molecule stencil around the "planets"


Once dry I have added the details- stamping and the focal point being the rocket man.  The title has been embossed with a black glitter embossing powder and the spaceman with plain coloured embossing powders.


For my second project I have created two tags


I have created these two tags using the Journal tags that are available at Scrap FX.  The chipboard pieces have been painted in Spectrum Noir alcohol inks and the background stamps using distress oxide stamp inks.

Dream Big Fly High - art journal page for Scrap Matrix DT

Hi everyone, today I am sharing my second project for this months Challenge - Use "fly" in a quote.

I have created another art journal page:


I started this page with a background using Dina Wakley Paints - Turquoise, Lemon, Fuchsia and Sky followed by white paint added by using a brayer.


This sat on my desk for a while cos I love the look of it and didnt know what I wanted to do going forward!   I find created backgrounds so soothing - maybe I will make an art journal full of background pages only!

I decided to add some more colour over top of the white and then traced through a Paper Artsy Stencil the pattern.   

Using my Black paint and black posca pen in the smaller spaces I coloured around the stencil pencil marks I had made.


I have then added white doodles and marks all around 



I have used ALL and Create stamp #47 to add some bees and the title.  The bees were getting lost in the "busy ness" so I have used a Tim Holtz Splatters stencil and black gesso behind them.

Here are some close ups:





Thats it for me today.  I have linked the products used below.

Art journal page for Scrap Matrix

Hi everyone, Lynn here today to share an art journal page that I have created for this months challenge at Scrap Matrix - using "Fly" in a quote


I began with Distress Oxide Sprays - Spiced Marmalade, and Picked Raspberry onto the page, and then added the Textured Resist Spray though the Tracey Scott stencil 


Once the resist spray was dry I have added a coat of clear gesso to seal the oxides otherwise they will reactivate.
 I have painted with paper Artsy paint - purple rain - the areas with the spray resisted the paint. (definately the ugly stage of the process!!)


and all that it takes to go from ugly to nice is some white paint and a brayer together with a title!!!!

I stamped a butterfly using the stamping platform so that I could realign the stamp acurately after colouring it with paper Artsy paints to get a nice black finish again.


I have used Liquid Pearls on the butterfly.  

The quote was handwritten on bookpaper that had been given a light coating of gesso.

The word "Fly" was stamped from Tracey Scotts Paper Artsy Stamp - ETS22

I have linked the products used at the bottom of this post.

Here are some close ups:
