Art Journalling

I love the art journal style and had a bit of time to play with my own art journal this week. I am entering this into the Fashionable Stamping Challenge, where the theme is journalling!



First I painted the page with acrylic paint, then using Gel Medium stuck on the torn book pages.  I painted over the top of the whole page with a light coat of Gesso.  I used a stencil to create the sunflowers using Distress Ink and foam.

The stamps are a fabulous set by Sam Poole for Creative Expressions. I paper pieced the fairy before adding other motifs onto the page. I used Promarkers to colour some of the motifs and the words were stamped onto paper before cutting out and sticking on.
