Art Journals.....

Good morning.....
I love the freedom of Art journals.....they are a creative expression!

We have three amazing and different art journals to share today....
Each one is unique and reflective of their creator...

This first fabulous one is from Wilma, using our April Scraps of Darkness 'Travel Stories' kit:


All the paper for the background and title came out of the kit.
As well as the colorsprays and Finnabair Art Alchemy paint.





 The next one is really wonderful and created by Lisa Griffith using our April Scraps Of Elegance 'Wonderful' kit:


She started with a beautiful old book that she found at an estate sale, an ancient copy of 'Black Beauty', that was so worn and tattered and with thick creamy pages, just perfect for altering. She covered the spread with a very thick coat of clear gesso, so that her inks wouldn't seep in, and then some heavy white gesso to lighten up the pages. She then took some of the Graphic 45 Ephemera Cards from the kit and tore up some pieces and glued them down and added some strips of washi tape here and there, then splashed some Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays.





As a final touch she added some of these little black alpha beads from a previous kit to add some interesting contrast.

The final beautiful art journal was created by Denisa, using our April Scraps Of Darkness 'Travel Stories' kit:


As a starting point she used the Graphic 45 Cityscapes Collection Crossroads paper. She wanted to mute it down a bit so she applied a thin coat of white gesso.
Next she created some texture by gluing down paper strips and applying opaque modeling paste over a stencil. She did some random stamping using the gorgeous stamps (Botanical and Script by Kaisercraft) from the main kit and Element add ons.

  She also treated her art journal with the amazing Finnabair´s Art Alchemy Acrylics Metallique Fresh Orange and Steampunk Copper from the Color add on. Then she played with Lindy's Stamp Gang Sassy Sapphire spray, which is also included in the main kit. Paper elements come from Kaisercraft Story Book Collectables that were in the Elements Add On. The focal point is Tim Holtz´s Idea-ology metal quote.




Thanks so much for stopping by
