Art Journal Inspiration

Hi everyone,
It’s Marta Lapkowska here.
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas.

Today I would love to share with you my recent journal spread.
In few steps I will show you how can you simply create your background.
You can create your background base by using masking tape, old book pages or just leftover paper strips.

When you have your textured background time to add some gesso to prime your pages… next step is to add some colour.

One of my most favourite technique is to use a pipe from inside the
bottle. Instead of using brush you can ‘draw & paint’ using plastic
pipe.

My next step was to emboss my chipboards and add some stamping.

I hope this inspired you to create your own simple textured backgrounds. It’s great to use old, recycled pieces of paper. In this way you will create unique and one in kind journal pages.

On this note I wish you best of luck in the new year, many creative moments and hope you will have an inspirational 2016 year!
