Beginning of 2018 Art Journals

Happy New Year Creative Souls! I´m her today to share two of my first Art Journal spreads for this new year. First out My journey with the Scrap FX Art Journal continues in the new year and this month I have used the Petal Pattern Stencil together with the Steampunk Key Corner & “extraordinary” from the #surrealwording set.

I love that you can use the Scrap FX stencils so many ways. You can use them to mist over, to create pattern, so draw around etc. I used two techniques on this spread. First I applied heavy white gesso trough the Petal Pattern stencil to create texture. Then when dry I used a sponge and black stamping ink to create the black bold pattern. I don´t care that the pattern is a bit “broken” that gives more character and interest in my meaning.

The Steampunk Key corner is really beautiful and I wanted to use it on a project that would let it stand a bit for itself. I found it to be perfect in on corner of my spread. I followed up the metallic pink splatters with painting the chipboard piece in the same color. Makes it really pop.

I had the intention to paint the #surreal wording as well, but decided it would look better natural – love how it turned out with the black text strip above.

My second spread was made for Canvas Corp Bands Creative Crew. It´s about my Craft resolutions for 2018. 

I have been working with the 7gypsies Architextures Parchment Rub-ons on this spread and really love how it turned out! Please visit the Canvas Corp Brands blog here for more details on how this was made.

So what is your creative vice during 2018?

Leave us a comment – I would love to know!

Until next time!
