Hi everyone, today I am up on the Scrap FX blog with an art journal page and a 12x12 layout  featuring this months new chipboard pieces.   Firstly the art journal page:

I just loved this silhoutte when I saw it and created this page.  I began by using Dylusion paints on the background:

I have then used the gasket stencil and a baby wipe to make some marks in the paint - the baby wipe picks up the colour through the stencil

I have then added some black to the page and white with a brayer to push the colours to the background
The chipboard has been embossed using Ranger Embossing Powder - Fine Black
I have created the brick wall by drawing it in with a black marker and colouring with water colour pencils til I was happy with the result.  I have used the heart stamp with Lemon Zest Dylusion ink.

I have added some white marks and words and the transparency title, together with gesso splatters to complete the page.
Products Used:
Transparency - Teen Advice
For my second project I have created a the following layout
Here are some close ups:

Art Journal page for Visible Image

Hi everyone, today I am sharing an Art Journal page that I have created for Visible Image.

I began with some torn up dictionary paper glued onto the art journal page

Using the Elemental background stamp I have embossed onto the page using a silver and grey embossing powder

Using Golden High flow paints I have applied to the page and allowed the water to spread the paint

In the next photo, you will see that I have made a mistake and I wanted to share this with you.  Art Journals to me are about the process including all mistakes.  I have embossed the image - but it was upside down!!!

as my page is part of a journal I didnt want to rip the page out - so instead I have stamped the image again onto another piece of paper and fussy cut it out.   The little dots are now at the top but to me that is fine!!!

I have stamped some of the other stamps in the collection around the page and outlined the lips and edges of the page with Stablio Black ALL pencil. 

Here are some close ups:

Here are the stamps I have used:

12x12 Layout for Scrap Matrix DT

Today I would like to share my layout for this months challenge at Scrap Matrix - all things RANGER.  I have used Dina Wakely Heavy Body paints to create this layout of my super lazy cat (I guess you dont get fat like him without perfecting laziness!!!)

I have used 7 Dots Paint Chips Collection paper.  I have mixed two colours of Dina Wakley Heavy Body paints - Lemon and Turquoise with Prima Modelling paste and applied through a couple of stencils

I love how the colours remain vibrant even when mixing with white texture paste.

I created the backgournd using tags, stickers and others papers from the same 7 Dots Paint Chips collection.
The flowers were white and have been painted with the Dina Wakley Paints.

I have painted the metal flowers with white gesso and then Dina Wakley Heavy Body paint - black

Once I had the page assembled I have used all three colours watered down to apply paint splats around the layout.

Here are some close ups:
