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:

Whatever you do today, make sure it’s a creative one!

Collage Art Journal Page – Bloom ‘n’ Grow

Playing in my Dina Wakley Muti-surface journal with one of my new stencils for April (Lotus Flower) and some paints…I think it’s safe to say I’m ready for some Spring/Summer colour and want to put the drab and snowy days of winter well behind me. In my head winter is a distant memory and I’m already sitting in the sunshine in my garden!

To watch how I created this art journal page from start to finish, click the YouTube link below.
