Sword in the Stone Art Journal Page

Hello Everyone!

I have another page for the Sisterhood of the Traveling Art Journal. This theme was a little harder for me, and really challenged me creatively, but in the end I think I found a creative way to approach this theme. 

 

So the theme of this journal is medieval gypsy. I am not sure exactly what that means so I just went with the medieval part, specifically the legend of the Sword in the Stone.

I love this story, and this page reflect this. I created a rock out of fabric, and the background is textured with tissue paper and colored with dylusions sprays.

The best part of this page is that the sword actually goes up and down! So much fun!

I am really loving how this Sisterhood program that I am in really helps me expand my boundaries and stretch my creativity. I can’t wait to see what next month will bring!

Hot Air Balloon Art Journal Page

Hello Everyone!

Lately I have been getting back to my Art Journal and I have been in love! It is so great to get back to painting and creating without worrying about selling it (I have been doing a lot of craft fairs lately).

If you follow me on You Tube you probably have already seen my time lapse video of my journal page, but in case you didn’t here is the video:

I used a lot of material that I had on hand, which is fun to use what I have.

Instructions:

I started with my Dylusions Creative Journal from Ranger. I love this journal it is big and the paper is thick and doesn’t warp when I add a lot of paint and mediums on it.

I painted light blue all over and while it was still wet I painted dark blue on then layered the champagne color on top. I didn’t blend it all together, but kept the colors a little separate with a little blending.

Completly dry that layer before going on to the next step. The back ground was nice but it needed more texture, so I stenciled in some circles using the dark blue and a teal color.

Once that was dry I stamped swirls on top with archival in . They don’t have to be perfect, in fact I think it all looks better when things are not exactly perfect.

While that is all drying I cut out some hot air balloons I found in a magazine and adhered them down with matt medium.

The journal page was starting to look better but it needed a little bling, so I added some resin dots I found at the dollar store and I added some great quotes from Tim Holtz Big Chat stickers. (I love these stickers!)

Then I splashed white acrylic paint on the page and then went around the edges of the balloons with a black gelato.

For the final touch I outlined major elements with a white gel pen.
