Art Journal Page "Together" for Scrap Matrix DT

Hi everyone, Lynn back here to share my second art journal page that I have created for this months challenge/moodboard.

In case you havent seen it yet - this is the moodboard:

    I have created this page:

If you had seen my previous art journal blog you will remember that I created a "mop up" page with the excess paint - well i have turned that page into the houses.

Here is a pic from the previous post - i have used the piece on the right

I have used a circle stencil from Darkroom Door (any circle stencil will work) and with a fine black pen have drawn in some circles.

I have then doodled in and around the circles with a white and black Posca pen.

I have then drawn some house shapes and cut them out

Using Dylusion Paint pens I have drawn in windows and doors etc.

In my Dylusion Art Journal book I have created the background page.  I have used Distress Oxide - Salty Ocean, Stormy Sky, Peacock Feathers, Mowed Lawn, Cracked Pistachio and Lucky Clover.

I placed the ink pad directly onto the page and stayed with water enable them to move when wiped with a brush

I have spritz the page with water diluting the colour where the drops land.

I have arranged the houses in an order that I liked and adhered them with Matte Medium.

I needed to ground the houses so drew in some paths and a road with a Stabilio black pencil which activates with water.

I have used a cloud stencil and Dina Wakley Gloss Spray - White to add some clouds to the top of the page.  I have then gone around the edges of the clouds with blue coloured pencil.

I thought the paths needed some grass I i have used some green gelatos to create the effect of grass around the path and houses.

Finally I decided that people were needed to added some girls that I cut from a very old Prima Stamp "Bloom" and coloured with flourescent coloured pencils.

The saying was a word sticker in the Fiona Paltridge Strength in Numbers Collection - I cut out the word "together" and replaced it with one that had a bigger font as I wanted to highlight that word.

Here are some close ups;

I hope that you have been inspired to have a go - I cant wait to see all the houses that everyone creates.

Dont forget to upload to the Scrap Matrix Shares page on facebook to be in the chance to win a voucher to spend in the store.

Until next time 

Happy Crafting :)

Art Journal Page for Scrap Matrix DT

Hi everyone, I cant believe it is the start of another month already!  The good thing about that - it is new challenge time over at Scrap Matrix.!!!!!  This months challenge is a moodboard all about houses.

I have not been one of the ones that have been able to stay home, I have had to go to work each day and as I live in the country live has not been too different for me.

This moodboard was certainly a favourite of mine - colour and houses - what a great combination.

Here is my page

I have created this in my Dylusions Large Art Journal.  After covering the page with gesso I got to play with the new Dina Wakley Gloss Sprays   - Marine, Fuchsia and Lemon.

I love how these paints interact with each other - and the desire to dry was difficult to resist but with being plastic paints heat is not recommended.   
As I am not a patient person I decided to use another piece of paper to mop up the excess

I LOVED how it pulled the paint and created texture.  The paint has dried a little and when I pulled the piece of paper off  (I have used Paper Artsy Smoothy cardstock) it lifted the paint in areas which created a real rough feel that I love.- I have put the piece on the right to the side and will use this on my next project later in the month.

While the paint was drying I got a second piece of Paper Artsy Smoothy Cardstock and painted stripes using Dylusion Paints - Tropical Sangria, Sour Appletini, Mango Punch and Lemon Drop.  There are the new colours from Dylusions and are so delicious.

I have then stamped the houses stamp from Paper Artsy ZA40

I have then used Dylusion Paint Pens and Posca white and black pens to colour the images which I adhered to the page.  The title I have stamped with Tim Holtz Block Upper Case stamp and Black Ink.

I have then written around the houses in a black Posca Pen.

Here are some close ups:
