Hello and Welcome!
Martina here with you today, creating another Art Journal page.
Today’s page doesn’t require lots of special products – most of them could easily be substituted with products you have on hand.
And it doesn’t need any advanced skills – it is totally suitable for beginners too!
I am using my big 8.3×11.7 in Art Journal which offers a lot of space to play but you can use any other Journal or surface you have.
But – let’s get started!
I have fussy cut a bunch of flowers from a sheet of design paper and chosen the colors I’d like to work with.
Since these papers are a.b.Studio ones, I have been thinking that working with the new Mountain Meadows set, which are the a.b. Studio colors, would be nice.
To make sure that the colors won’t soak into the paper flowers, I have applied a thin layer of clear Gesso to them.
In the drying time of the flowers, I have been stamping with various stamps to my background.
Using Archival Ink, I have been using floral and subtle steampunk-ish stamps to build the basement of my cluster.
Beginning with Stormy Sky, I have started to bring some color to the page. Since I was looking for a more loose look, I have sprayed some water onto the blue circles and tilted my page to help the color to start move.
Whilst the background was drying, I have painted my fussy cut elements. Starting with Mountain Meadow Green and Evergreen Emerald on the leaves.
And then Wild Rose Rouge and Foxglove Fuchsia on the flowers.
Adding splatters to the background with the leftover color on my craft mat.
Before gluing everything down, I have been planning my final arrangement and deciding on a sentiment.
And that’s what I ended up with!
I totally love the freshness and colors of this page!
I have been using:
- A.B. Studio: Paper, Stamps, Prima/Finnabair: Stamps, Word Strips: Asia Marquet
Thank you so much for your time – I really do hope you enjoyed watching!
Have a great day!
