Hi Scrapping Clearly Lovelies,
It's Karyn here,
and today I have some Art Journal pages to share with you, made using lots of fun products available in the Scrapping Clearly Store.
A few weeks ago I shared some pages made with Dylusions paints. Well, today I'm using Dina Wakley paints. l love paints and I seem to need to buy complete ranges of ALL paints haha!! Well, then new DWM paints came out - so I had to order them all. I actually like the smaller sized bottles. I find they are easier to use. Also, I have had trouble with a number of lids on the larger tubes - they either don't seal properly or start to break off and then the paint thickens.
Anyway, for this first page, I was inspired by the gorgeous and talented Lisa Oxley to use black paint, and to remove colour using a stencil.
I've started by adding some strips of book paper to my page with gel medium, then applying white gesso to pages in my Small Dylusions journal. Then I added Magenta, Sky, Lime, and white Dina Wakley paints. Once this was dry I added black DWM paint across my page, then put down a triangles stencil and used a baby wipe to remove the paint - cool huh!.
Next I added a few more stencils (corn cob) with different coloured paints (using a sponge), then some stamps.
I added some marks and splats with watered down black and white paints that I put in a Fineline bottle. I put 2 parts paint with 1 part water - but best to add the paint first then add water a bit at a time until you get the right consistency. If it is too think it won't come out of the fine nozzle. This is great to use to scribble on your page!!
I drew a few birds on my page with the white Fineliner bottle. I'm not much of an artist but am happy with these quick and rustic birds :) Lastly, I added some Tim Holtz Small Talk stickers.
Of course I needed to do another art journal page - this time using the new DWM paints (to justify buying them all lol!
Again I started by adding some strips of book paper to my page with gel medium, then applying white gesso to pages in my Small Dylusions journal. Then I added the new Sedona, Peacock, Olive, Marine, Eggplant, and Buff Dina Wakley paints. Once this was dry I added black DWM paint across my page. Next, it was time to play with adding marks using paint/paintbrush, and my white Fineliner bottle. Lastly, I added some Tim Holtz Small Talk stickers and a stamp from the Dina Wakley "Gal Quotes" stamp set.
Thanks so much for stopping by
