Be Creative in Your Journey Art Journaling Tutorial

Weekends are a time to catch up on my Art Journaling. This is my form of rest and rejuvenation for the week ahead. This weekend I was inspired by an art journaling spread in Stampington's Art Journaling Magazine. The artist featured in the article is Marta Turska-Grochocka and her art journal pages are amazing.

When I'm trying out techniques featured by other artists, I try to use what I have on hand as I don't have ready access to a supply store, the nearest scrapbooking/mixed media supply store being a three hour drive away, so I often shop online.

For this art journaling page I used my Dylusions' Art Journal. I gesso'd the pages first and then stamped the pages with Tim Holtz stamps and then randomly added some of his tissue tape.

Modeling paste through a Crafters Workshop Stencil adds some texture to the page

Dylusions Spray Ink in Cherry dribbled on the page brought the details to life. I also added some drops of water to get the ink to move a bit.

Then a few bits and pieces, some cardstock stickers, again from Tim Holtz, a prima flower....

Some lace colored with Distress Ink in Spun Sugar

and some Prima Art Alchemy acrylic paint in metallique light patina used sparingly. 

I also added some pale pink butterfly tissue tape.

 and the final pieces, a few more stickers and 2 art journaling cards from Prima, A lovely lady.....

and the Eifel Tower with chit chat stickers from Tim Holtz....
