Art Journal Page for Paper Artsy

Hi everyone, I'm here to share my interpretation of the topic Tiny (News) Print for Paper Artsy.

This is one of my favourite ways to create a background whether it be on canvas, in my art journal or even making cards. Each time it comes out a little different depending on the paper you use.

I first start by ripping up dictionary paper (this is my tiny (news) print! I have adhered it to the page using matte medium.  I have covered the entire art journal page with these papers.

I have then randomly painted the following colours onto a 12x12 Paper Artsy super smooth heavy cardstock tangerine TwistZesty ZingBubble GumDirty Lime and Red Lipstick.  Once dry I have placed it into the misti so I can stamp the flowers.

I have used Stamp EKC48 by Kay Carley.  I like to stamp in the Misti as you can restamp the image if it isn't clear enough.

I then fussy cut them all out!

 At this stage I like to make the colours pop and have used Prismacolour pencils over the top.

I have then adhered them to the page using matte medium



I have used a stabillo All pencil to highlight and add a texture look to some of the paper joins as well as a shadow around the flowers.  I have stamped some twigs coming up from the pot and round the layout.  I have added some white paint pen to the twigs.  I have used a quote from stamp set EKC44 - "Its your time to bloom".

Once everything was dry I have added some gel pens and glitter glue to the flowers - everything looks better with a bit of bling!!!

Here are some close up photos

I hope you have been able to follow the process of making this page and give it a go yourself.  I love the texture this page has with the dictionary pages, cut out flowers and glitter.
