Colour Outside The Lines

Hi there! We have fabulous inspiration from Elisa Ablett here on the blog today…



Hi everyone,


Elisa here again with my latest project for the Visible Image design team, a colourful and vibrant Art Journal spread featuring a background created with a Gel Press monoprinting plate and acrylic paint.


I used the fabulous Fibres stencil with the Gel Press plate to create a textured multi-coloured look. I placed it over my gelli plate and sponged a baby wipe over it to take some of the colour off and it produced this gorgeous patterns in my background.


I then stamped the Face It stamp on the right hand side of my page and added some white highlights using a white paint pen.




Add your title by stamping your Outside the Lines stamp onto scrap paper ( I used a practise piece from my gelli plate adventures) to go with your page.


Cut out your title and mount onto your collaged pieces of paper on the left hand side.




Add some highlights to make your stamps stand out from your background!





Here are the products I used from the Visible Image Store –












That’s it from me today, I hope you have enjoyed seeing how you can incorporate mixed media techniques such as monoprinting with your stamps!! make your stamp stash go further !


Hugs
Elisa xx

I See Bold Colour

Good Evening! We have a bold and fabulous journal post by Lynn Good here on the blog today…




Hi everybody, today I have an art journal page to share with you…



I began by putting down some bold colours – I find this often gives me clarity about what I want to do



I have used Dylusion paints – Lemon Zest, Postbox Red, and Tangerine Dream.


I have used the ‘Time Tunnel’ stencil and Distress Ink Chipped Sapphire to create the focal points



I used Dina Wakeley Heavy Body White paint and a brayer randomly around the pages.  With the left over white paint I applied this to the ‘Strobes’ Stencil and using a roll of paper towel, pressed it onto the page.



On a separate piece of paper I have stamped the eye from the ‘Where Dreams Take You’ stamp set and cut it out, adhering it to the art journal page using matte gel medium.  I have coloured the eye with a watercolour blue.


I have then randomly stamped around the layout using stamps that I have listed below in the products list.  I have used a white paint pen and the Dylusions paints to highlight areas.  For the final touch I have applied Whipped Spackle paste through a stencil randomly on the layout to bring it all together.


Here are some close ups:

Thanks for stopping by and I hope that I have given you some inspiration to get out the bold colours and create.

Til next time – Happy Crafting!
Lynn
