Art Journalling with "Raindrops on roses" August kit and Scraps of Elegance!

Hi there! Sorry I haven't been very active herelately and few projects but my son just got married this past weekend, so needless to say I have been very busy and very preoccupied! The wedding was a smashing success, and the lovely couple are off on their honeymoon getting acquainted!

I wanted to try my hand at art Journalling. As it is all the rage lately, and it just so happens that in The Creative Add on kit has an art journal in it with a cute stencil and embossing powder and such. So I gave it a shot!  Here is my result!

For the first page I used a Butterfly stencil and some homemade modelling paste. I used the Lindy sprays from the color add on. I love how when some of the colours blended I got purple, and the blue took on a teal colour with the black spray. I coloured the butterflies with Stickles ( wow! Hadn't used those in a LONG time!) I used a Prima stitches stamp and some Lindy's embossing powder from my stash. I then used some black gelatos around the edges of the page.

For my second page I jut used the pink spray from the color add on. I used gesso on both pages, and I sprayed water on first, then the pink, and then hit it with the heat gun till dry. I just kept repeating this process till I was satisfied with the result. I did do a bit of dabbing with a paper towel as well.  I used the stencil that came in the Creative add on and used modeling paste. I used some black paint and a old gift card and made some random black lines, and also black lines in between each "sun ray" of the stencil. I used the embossing powder from the add on kit on the black flowers, but you can't see it I the photo. 

I am quite happy with how it turned out, being my first time. But next time I will not use such dimensional flowers as now the book won't close properly! I have to change my mind set when it comes to art Journalling! Lol. Thanks so much for dropping by! Time to get working on my next project!

Be Blessed!


  1. Wow for your first art journal pages this is stunning! love the colors and yes I have found to try and keep it as flat as possible.. but then the bulk and bulges all add character too!

  2. Awesome! I love both of your pages. Your art journal is off to an amazing start! Can't wait to see more of your pages.
    And congratulations to the newlyweds. Weddings are fun but they do tend to wear a Momma out! :D
