Today I’ve been playing in my small Dylusions flip journal and trying to recreate a pattern and style that was inspired by some cool mid-century style retro wallpaper! It’s a quick art journal page but lots of fun to recreate! This is the wallpaper that inspired the page! I’ve only chosen a couple of colours of Distress Inks to recreate the colours on this page.

Using a mellow and natural palette of colours in today’s art journal page and of course, it’s been such a long time since I created a page in my large circle art journal. Makes a nice change to work in a different size and shape format. The colours I used were Brusho pigment powders, these powders are flexible and an easy to use pigment powder and you get such glorious results from very little effort. The two focal images are public domain images from a clip art website – I’ve had them for so long I can’t remember where they are from – sorry, but to make up for it here they are for you to use if you so wish.

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.
