Mixed Media Art Journal Page – Curiosity

Taking a quote from art critic John Ruskin “Necessity of restraint, remember, is just as honourable to man as the necessity of labour” I felt inspired to create an art journal page that was restrained in its application of layers and focal elements. The original idea was to create an art journal page with plenty of white space…but that went out the window almost immediately!

Art Journal Page – Balance

I wanted to use an old image I’ve had in my “vintage” stash for quite a while. The image is a fun, whimsical photo of two music hall or circus acrobats. I love the striped costumes and frilled shorts. It’s such a fun picture and a perfect one to show or convey “Balance”!

I also couldn’t resist adding a moustache on to the top guy! The page is in my Dina Wakley Multisurface Journal. I used acrylic paints and a Distress Marker for the colours. To see how I created the page from start to finish you can click the YouTube image below.

Mixed Media Art Journal Page for IndigoBlu DT

It’s my turn to share some IndigoBlu Design Team inspiration with you today and I thought I’d create a whimsical mixed media art journal page using the new Collectors Edition No15 Stamp “Dorking Hen” and a few other fab IndigoBlu products (listed below)

When I saw the Dorking Hen I immediately thought of at least 6 ways to use the stamp, but all tongue in cheek!

Here’s just one of them. Click below to watch.

Here’s a list of all the IndigoBlu products used in this project:
