art journals

hello everyone I just realised that there were still a couple of pages com my art journal I did on my recent crafty break with friends I  hadn't shown you.

I'm still very much a novice at this art journaling but I am just loving the whole learning process.  

I think the main thing I have learned so far is to.keep layering until you are happy with the effect you have.
 This dream page started with some green and turquoise acrylic paints, I then kept adding some stamping using some script and bubble stamps till I was happy with the effect.  I cut the heart and the.circles from text paper and finger painted a layer of pearlescent pink paint on, the paint is quite translucent so you can still see the text.  I added a few strips of.washi tape, some rub ons and stamped the dream sentiment and butterfly stamps on white tissue paperr using stazon inks. you then tear
 round the tissue close to the stamping and apply it to your page using gel medium.  you can't then see the tissue paper so it looks like you stamped directly on the page.

I finished it off by scribbling round the circles with pearlescent pink acyrylic ink and letting it dribble down the page.  I love the effect so thank you Dee for letting me use yours. A bottle of this is on my wish list now but probably in turquoise, no surprise there then.


  1. Lovely pages Suzy.

    I've never gotten into art journaling because I never know where to start and would be afraid of messing up the pages - you seem to have got the knack.
