Hi everyone, today I would like to share this art journal project with you all and today I’m working in my JMA Slimline Art Journal. Let’s get started!
I picked a white page from my art journal and stamped part of the large image (mainly I tried to leave out the stack of books) from the JMA-WYS-STAMP209 onto this panel using a juicy black ink and heat embossing directly afterwards using clear embossing powder.
I knew I wasn’t going to colour directly onto the journal page using the JMA Light Markers but I wanted to know if it would work to my liking and I must say that I prefer different papers better! I added my teal background colour using a Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical Shaker in “Time Travel Teal” : for this I added some of the powder onto the paper, sprayed with water, which makes the colour run and dried with my heat tool when I liked what I had, this I repeated until I was happy.
I also stamped two of the flower images from the same stamp set separately as well as one of the flower images from the JMA-WYS-STAMP208 stamp set, onto Strathmore Bristol Smooth Surface paper, using the same juicy black ink and also directly heat embossing afterwards using clear embossing powder. After fussy cutting the images I next created a watercolour paint using the teal coloured Magical Shaker and coloured in the background using a small brush.
Now I can start colouring the flower images using the JMA Light Markers, for this project I used the following marker colours in combination with a water brush: Deep Cosmos Purple, Peony Deep, Blue Berry, Violet Dark, Golden Yellow and Brown Grey. After the colouring is done and dry I added back in some highlights using a white gel pen.
Here you can see the finished coloured flower images.
I created splatters on the journal page background using a white Posca marker.
I also picked my quote from the STICKERJMA05 stickerbook and adhered the quote onto matching purple card stock.
To finish the project I now only have to adhere the coloured flower images and the quote on top of the page, using one millimetre thick foam tape and liquid glue.
And that is it for today’s art journal project! I wish you a creative day!
