Hi everyone, today I would like to share this fun coloured pencil art journal page with you all!
Today I’m working on one of the craft coloured pages in the Jenine’s Mindful Art Slimline Journal (JMA-ES-JOUR03). I took the page out of the journal and than applied some Spectrum Noir Opaque Pigment ink in “Pure White” over two stencil designs using a foam applicator tool. I used the stencils JMA-WAC-MASK59 en JMA-ES-MASK41 for this.
Next I’m stamping the flower image from the JMA-ES-STAMP68 stamp set, as well as the loose leaves and the butterfly from the JMA-NA-STAMP19 twice onto Strathmore Toned Tan paper using black ink.
Now the colouring fun can begin: I usually start by mapping out where my highlights will be, for this I use a white drawing pencil. Next I apply the coloured pencil colours that I picked out and apply them lightly. Followed my multiple layers of white en coloured pencil until I like what I have. This takes a lot of time, like multiple hours, but that’s okay for me! After the colouring is done I fussy cut the images leaving a small border. If you went over the stamped lines a little too much you can correct that with a black fineliner pen.
I used the following colours of Spectrum Noir ColourBlend pencils for colouring the images: Cupid, Pink Violet, Periwinkle, Admiral Blue, Amazon Green and Fern Green.
To create a bit of contrast between the first and the second flower behind that I die cut a doily using the STENCILJMA10 die set and some vellum. This is what my lay out looks like right now (nothing is adhered at this stage). Here is where I think of what my page needs and what needs to be added.
I adhered one of the sentiments from the STICKERJMA05 stickerbook onto matching dark pink mirror card stock and cut around it using my scissors. I also die cut some reinforcements using the Crealies CLJP650 Binder Reinforcement Shapes and matching card stock (that I edged using Distress Ink in “Faded Jeans” and a foam applicator tool).
I also stamped on the craft coloured background using brown ink and the script stamp from the flower stamp set and I created splatters using a Coliro Pearl Colour in “Sky Blue” in combination with a brush.
Now it is time to finish my project, I adhered all the elements to the page using one millimetre thick foam tape and Ranger Medium Matte from the small bottle and cutting of the excess using my scissors. I totally love how this page turned out!
And that is it for today’s art journal project! I wish you a creative day!
