With the month of love heading our way it’s time start pulling out all those love themed crafting projects.
Today I am sharing some art journaling inspiration using POP Paint and stamps for a bright and love filled spread.
I wanted a fun and happy page with a few key elements and a nice focal point. Not too bright but with the right amount of colour
and I think I achieved exactly what I had in mind.
step 1 -Dry brush some Burst (orange) POP Paint onto your background in a random fashion.
step 2 – Once the orange is dry, dry brush some Blush POP Paint over it and leave to dry.
step 3 – Trace a heart shape onto your background using a pencil. Use a coloured dye ink spray and remove the nozzle from the bottle
and trace around the heart shape. Leave to dry.
step 4 – Use Onyx POP Paint and some stencils to add details. Lift a small amount of black paint with a sponge dauber and tap off the excess.
Pounce through the stencil design to transfer a thin layer of paint onto your page. Leave to dry.
TIP: The thinner the layer applied the quicker it will dry.
step 5 – Use your fine print stamps and black ink and stamp over your entire page for some added details.
step 6 – Add some stamped heart and sentiment details to finish off your page. Use a white gel pen and draw some details on your page.
POP paint makes for amazing coloured art journaling pages and can be used in a multitude of ways.
What have you done with your POP Paint lately – and what colour combinations have you tried?
The possibilities are endless.
Being creative never is a one sided affair. For me being creative is the constant thinking of how you can use scraps, samples, or experiments. Creativity is evolving and growing into different things, creating multiple things at any given time. This of course brings me to my next project…
This art journaling page was created for a class and evolved into something that I really love! And while demoing how to create the background on a 12” background I created a gorgeous effect using pretty much the same colours of paint. And of course the natural progression would be to turn the sample page into a layout – mimicking everything from the art journal page onto the layout.
The only thing I needed was some pretty patterned paper. And when looking at the bright and beautiful background I could definitely use something that is neutral but also blue at the same time. This calls for some Kraft Essentials paper – matching up a perfect blue from the photo used with the necessary neutral needed.
It just goes to show, that inspiration is everywhere, that creativity is only an opportunity waiting to be taken and that Lady Pattern Paper papers are the perfect match in any situation. And that’s why it should be part of your crafting stash basics – fulfilling every creative need imaginable.
