Mid Month Mini Mission – Art Journal Page – Power of Creation

Time to have a play in my large Dylusions art journal with July’s Mid Month Mini Mission: Inspiration word which is “Power”. Please feel free to save the graphic below and use in your own art journal or mixed media projects.

I also used a new digi download collage kit called Heavenly Creation (click below for more details on the new kit).

Circle Art Journal Page – Beauty in Nature

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. Click to see the full-sized version, then save to your computer in the normal way.

Art Journal Page – Sacred & Immaculate

I’m not a hugely religious person. I consider myself to be more spiritual than religious, but these fantastic classic icon images of Jesus (Sacred Heart) and Mary (Immaculate Heart) really do speak to me in the way they are painted. The artistic style is glorious! I have had these two images as cut out transparent background pngs in my collection for ages and I’ve never quite known what I wanted to do with them…until today. I wanted to try and create the effect of an old plaster wall where the plaster is distressed, cracked and crumbling, then add the two images over the top and blend them in with IndigoBlu acrylic paints.

I’m happy with the way it turned out. To watch how I created the page from start to finish in real time, only the boring bits taken out. Click the YouTube link below.
