Art Journal Page Tutorial

Hi there!

It's a long time ago since I've been posting a full tutorial directly on my blog! Today I'd like to share a step by step process for this art journal page:


Here is what I've done:


Add some old book paper with Gel Medium and cover it with a thin layer of gesso.



Add DecoArt Liquid Acrylics to the page. Use a kitchen cloth to add some texture.



Add a little bit more colour. Use a baby wipe to remove it in some areas.



Stamp the tree (stamp comes from Visible Image) onto Tissue paper and adhere it with Gel Medium. Add more texture with stamps directly onto the page with StazOn inks. Finally add some gold Liquid Acrylics.



Add some more colour with Faber-Castell Oil Pastels. Blend the paint with your fingers.



Add a little more stamping to finish it up.



In addition to Visible Image stamps I used stamps from Rubber Dance and Viva Las VegaStamps!.
I hope you like it!
xx Susanne.

In case you got lost on your way, here is our line up:
Susanne Rose <-- you are here


This is how you can make the backgrounds for these cards:


I made two gelli prints with black acrylic paint and the lovely Flower stencils. The first print is the one in the middle, the second is the ghost print on the right. The left one is where I've cleaned the stencils. I didn't use this for my cards, but I save it for later.






Now I added water with a spray bottle and Brusho powders. I used purple, gamboge, olive green, sea green and orange. I cut the backgrounds for my cards with a stitched frame die and build the cards together.



I embossed the kraft card base with WOW! Black Glint powder and a stamp from STAMPlorations. I adhered my Brusho background at an angle with foam dots. Finally I added the sentiment.


I cut the sentiment with the Tim Holtz Word Block dies from Sizzix from some Brusho - scrap paper.


Thank you for stopping by today!
Good luck in the draw!
xx Susanne.
