Art Journal Page Tutorials by Kasia and Tatiana

Hello guys.. Kasia and Tatiana here today with an Art Journal Page.

Scrap studio screams mixed media and art journal to me and I loved using the different elements together with the new Kaiser Mists and Kaiser Ink pads to create this page. .

The colours of the mists are so vibrant and blend beautifully together, leaving a lovely shimmer when dry.

Tear small pieces of the Scrap Studio Paper pad papers and randomly adhere with gel medium to the page.

Roughly paint on white gesso to blend in the background.

When dry add the two doily stickers from the sticker sheet to the top and bottom of your page.

Adhere small bundled strips of muslin with gesso and allow to dry well.

Adhere strips from the sticker sheet, EXPRESSIONS and the paper pad down the bottom left of your page, slightly overlapping one another.

Apply texture paste through the two templates around your cluster of strips and allow to dry really well before moving to the next step.

Spray the Denim and Turquoise mists to the bottom left of your page and add a couple of sprays of water to help the colour move further. Add some sprays of yellow to the upper right of the page and allow to move into the blues to create a nice transition of green. Allow to dry really well and add another coat of colour if you like.

Using the permanent ink stamp a couple of butterflies, dots, film strip and doily images to add some texture and depth to your page.

Finish off by adding a couple of title strips from the sticker sheet and 3 fussy cut butterflies.

Lastly add a few splatters using the black mist.

I had so much fun creating this page I kept on going and playing with the mists a little more.

Below are a couple extra inspiration pages for you.

Foam Flower Tutorial with Bonus Layout.

Art Foam Flowers

We create for many different reasons,  sometimes for pleasure or perhaps to capture a precious memory or occasion that has happened in our lives.

Finding the right paper or embellishment can help us to achieve the reason why we have started to create in the first place.

Creating flowers adds an element of beauty to layouts.  They can be used in both masculine and feminine layouts.

By making them feel ‘vintage’ you certainly can  see how effectively they  compliment photos and papers.

Varying the size of the flowers also adds interest to layouts .

To learn how to make these flowers, watch the tutorial below.

3D Dream Big Frame Decor by Jowilna Nolte

I created this fun dimensional frame using this gorgeous range – Hide and Seek. Perfect for little girls and boys to insert treasures into the frame
adding to the dimensional look.

The little fox head stamp was coloured using Metallic Gel Pens and a layer of dimensional glaze added as a finishing touch.

Stamping directly onto the background below and above a vinyl sentiment cut on my Silhouette machine.

The leaves arrange on top of each other using a 3D silicone adhesive to keep the dimension.

I love how this frame turned out – perfect to make any room a magical place.
