A little journal page

Hello hello! 
Hope the month of March has been awesome for you. 
So who else is in awe of all the awesome Journal art Lisa and Kylie  have been creating? 
Oh my they are such inspiration. So because of feeling inspired by them I had a play in my journal. 
I also have been playing and self teaching a little abstract acrylic art. So I tackled it again in my journal. 
With Lisa in my head and the desire to create I made this.....



I think I’ve said it before, but the freeness of art journal is relaxing and exciting. You never quite know how it’s going to turn out. 

Once I had layered my base paints which included Dylusions white acrylic and art anthology in silve , I splashed liquitex carbon ink around and at the time thought I had ruined it a little by being to heavy handed with it. 
But this is what is so great about this process of journal, you can just keep building. So I then splashed liquitex titanium white ink as well. 
Then added some Dylusion orange and ranger distress collage medium into the mix, this ‘softened’ the black splashes a little. 



Now came the stenciling and stamping. 
I used an archival ink through a few different stencils and on the varied stamps



Once all my ‘messy creative’ was complete, I added to the page with a couple of we r memomory keepers Chipboard frames  And sitting in and around these I used Tim Holtz paper dolls to add a bit of curiosity to the pages. 



Then I added a few older stickers I’ve had for years to the page and finished with some more stamping on the frames and liquitex splats around to pull it all together. 



When I started these pages I thought I had totally wrecked it but.....the end result makes my heart smile. 

If you have yet to try this form of creativity, I highly recommend it. It allows the inner creative out. You might be pleasantly surprised. I know I am. 

I hope I can inspire you a little with my video of the process also. 

Till I see you all in April....happy scrapping.
