Studio Light Art Journal with Belinda Spencer

 Hello Scrapping Clearly fans!!

It's Belinda here today to share some art journal pages in the fabulous Studio Light Art Journal.

This is the art journal. I love that it is a ring binder so the pages can easily be removed to work on. The pages are 6.25" x 6.25" and are constructed of really sturdy good quality watercolour paper. There is a zip lock plastic pocket in the journal too to keep a few supplies handy if you are out and about sketching. I am super impressed with this journal and think I will need more than one!!

I decided to have a play with some collage to start with. I tore up some sheets from the Art By Marlene Collage Paper as well as random bits of notepaper, book paper and the punched edges of some notepaper. There's a bit of Heidi Swapp tape in there too. I used Dina Wakley Soft Matte Gel Medium to add the collage and then set it aside to dry completely. The pages warped a little but that will eventually sort itself out as the journal fills up and is kept closed. A little warping never hurt anyone!

Next I added some stencilling with the latest Art By Marlene Stencils and black gesso. I added some stamping too using the Mandala Tapestry Stamps by Art By Marlene and Jet Black Archival Ink.

I toned everything down a little by brayering over some heavy white gesso.

Next I grabbed a bunch of Dylusions Paints and played around with those. I swiped the paint over parts of the pages, placed a stencil over the top and then wiped away the paint with a water wet wipe. My wet wipes were a bit too juicy and smudged the stencils in places so I had to blot away with paper towel before removing the stencils.

Once the pages were dry, I went to town adding Art By Marlene Die Cut Elements, more stencilling, stamping and doodling with Posca Pens. I threw a lot at these pages and they held up really well. They turned out a lot busier than I had planned but I like the craziness of them.

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today. I hope you find some time to play with your Scrapping Clearly stash.
