My goal for 2020 was to step out of my comfort zone and
try something new. I love all the art journal pages
everyone creates but I haven't really done much. Those
that know me well, know why. Art journalling is messy and
I actually don't like getting my hands dirty.....well
not so much dirty but painty!!! Oh my.... I'm not an anxious
person but seeing photos of people with paint covered hands are
more that I can handle, I really struggle. That is probably the
main reason I haven't don't much in the way of art journalling.
So......here we go.
Oh and I did this page somehow with minimal mess to my
hands and no I didn't wear gloves!!! HOORAY!!
First thing I did to my page was to lay some tissue paper down
in a few areas using Monte Marte Gel Medium. I then stencilled
using light moulding paste and the Hud Stencil.
I used a wet wipe and Lindys Magicals to apply some brown
colour around the edges of my page and a little bit was
wiped lightly over some of the page.
I stencilled using the Half Tone Stencil and some Colour Blast paste. The paste gave a nice shimmer to the stencilled circles.
I have die cut out three butterflies using old book paper
and the Dainty Butterfly Large die. Then I have stamped
Colour Wheel Love Stamp images and die cut using the
Texture 1 die. This die I cut up into smaller pieces
and placed near my stamped images. Some washi tape was added then finally three small talk stickers from Tim Holtz Idea-ology.
I drew around the border of my page using a stabilo pencil and around the edges of the stickers with a black uni-ball pen.
So there you go.....the first page in my Art by Marlene journal.
See you again in a few weeks. Stay safe and happy crafting.
