Rebel Heart with Belinda Spencer

 Hello Scrapping Clearly peeps!!

It's Belinda here today to share my latest project inspired by the gorgeous October Mood Board Challenge. Today I am sharing an art journal spread using lots of fabulous products available in the Scrapping Clearly shop.


Here's another peek at the mood board.

I began my art journal spread by tearing some pieces of scrapbook papers and Dina Wakley Collage Collective papers in the colours of the mood board. as well as some book paper I then added them to the 6x6 White Dina Wakley Media Journal using Liquitex Matte Gel.

Next I used a palette knife to scrape some heavy white gesso over the pages.

Once the pages were completely dry, I diluted some Dylusions Paints in Blue Hawaiian, Blue Lagoon and Vibrant Turquoise with water. I spritzed the pages with water and then used a large soft paintbrush to drop the colour onto the pages. I moved the journal around a little to let the paint go where it wanted to.

I let the pages dry completely once again and then added the face and the quote using some Dina Wakley Collage paper and the Matte Gel.

When this stage once dry, I used the Dina Wakley Mini Boulders 6x6 Template with two blue Scribble Sticks to add some scribbly circles over the pages. I used the large soft paintbrush again to blend the crayon scribbles. I carefully dried the pages with a heat gun (not too close or the collage pieces will bubble) and then used a fine black Posca Pen to draw my own lines around the circles just like the quote says.

Next I tore off a strip of Dina Wakley Media Tape and lightly stuck it onto a piece of plastic (so that it can be removed after). I stamped the title using the Heidi Swapp Old School Clear Stamps. Iused Mermaid Lagoon Archival Distress Ink for the solid colour letter stamp and Jet Black Archival Ink for the outline letter stamp. Once the ink was dry (well it was almost dry and I paid the price of being too impatient when I smudged the first letter. D'oh!) I removed the tape from the plastic and added it to my pages.

And just because I am loving this stamp set so much right now, I had to add some mandalas around the edges using the Art By Marlene Mandala Tapestry Clear Stamps with the Jet Black Archival Ink. I coloured parts of the mandalas using Prima Art Philosophy Peacock Liquid Watercolour and also added some highlights using a white Posca Pen. I used the Pilot Pintor Pen in a lovely shade of blue to add some more lines in the large 'boulders'. I added a few more 'mini boulders' using the stencil and the white Posca Pen and drew some messy outlines around them with the black Posca.

To finish, I used a wet water brush pen to add some Pthalo Blue Shade Pan Pastel around the edge. This is such a gorgeous deep shade of blue. I love it! I also used a Darkroom Door stamp set to add a few stamped words.

Here's what I used:
