A YEAR'S WORTH OF ART JOURNAL SPREADS


Hello everyone. As promised, today, I am sharing a variety of art journal pages, I created this year. I must admit, I never considered myself an art journal artist, but I think it's safe to say, I am one of them! This year, I challenged myself to experiment with art journaling, and it was fun.



Come take a look at the variety of pages I created using acrylic paints, molding paste, gel beads, and much more! By the time you're finished watching my video, you'll be ready to order your own art journal to play with! As you watch the video, you will see, just how easy art journals can be. It doesn't need to be complicated...just have fun and enjoy the process!


Thanks so much for watching!

OCTOBER

Happy Fall ya'll! It's been awhile since I played with my Pretty Little Studio embellishments and since I had some fall photos from the my trip to the farm last week with my family, I wanted to use their Potpourri collection. I love this collection. It's my favorite collection of theirs, hands down. LOVE the HAPPY colors.


The die cuts and vellum leaves in this collection is sooooo pretty. I just can't get enough of them. Most of the layouts I create include die cuts because they are my favorite embellishments.


I sprayed the "thankful" die cut using Art Anthology's Timeless Coloration Spray.



I sprayed a variety of colors onto White Cardstock to create a colorful background for the layout since I was using a lot of bright colors. I wanted the layout to have a colorful and happy feel to it!
I splashed some Sky, Granny Smith, Sandcastle and Timeless Coloration Sprays in the background before adding the photos and embellishments.


I added some clear leaf stickers here and there along with some sticker words, jewels, vellum leaves and stamping. Lots of fun embellishments all over!

WONDERFUL

Hello everyone. Nicole here with a fun mixed media layout I created using the Love Coupon Stamp Set. Just recently, I became an auntie and I am so excited. Edward and I are in love with Henry! He is so precious.



To begin, I sprayed white cardstock with pink and tan spray mists (Colorations Sprays) by Art Anthology.

I used a circle template to draw two circles overlapping each other in the center of the layout and then I cut the butterflies out from the patterned paper and mounted them on the layout using foam squares to add dimension to the layout.

I added a few additional embellishments here and there along with some stamped images. Love how soft and pretty this layout turned out.

EVERYDAY LIFE

Happy Wednesday all! We are halfway through the week. Who's looking forward to the weekend? Raises hand. Until then, I would like to share this layout I created using the Border Stencil, Colorations Sprays (Ink Spot, Sedona) and the Silver Oxide Nickel Medium.

I snapped this photo a few months ago while I was at my little beach relaxing... They were soooo pretty. Their coloring was so gorgeous with a hint of turquoise blue... LOVE. Normally, when I scrapbook a layout, I do not plan anything... I find a photo that I love and just start working my magic!





I used Pink Paislee's Indigo and Ivy collection to create this layout. Love the colors in this collection. It is a perfect fit for the photo.



Once the Nickel Medium was dry, I glued the buttons in the center of the flowers I Created with the border stencil to add dimension.



The Ink Spot and Sedona Colorations Sprays  look so pretty on this layout. The colors are so vibrant.





Products Used:
Border Stencil
Colorations Sprays: Ink Spot, Sedona

Here's a video so you can see how this layout came together. Thanks so much for visiting today!

ALL THE LITTLE THINGS

Happy Friday! I'm excited to be off this weekend and I'm hoping I'll be able to see my baby nephew. I'm finally feeling like myself after being sick for over a week... Thank goodness. I just hope that Edward does not get what Pete and I had.


Since I'm better, I thought I'd participate in Pinkfresh Studio's October Challenge. Seriously...I cannot believe it's October already! I'm a sucker for circles so naturally, I was drawn towards this challenge and it was fun!


To begin, I colored white cardstock using a light blue acrylic paint. Then I ran the metal circle die through my Sizzix to create a few circles which I used to create a fun background for the layout. I used a foam square to pop up the enamel dot. Love these!


The "All the small things" sentimental embellishment was perfect for this layout... Look closely and you will see baby Henry! He is two months old this week. :)


I kept this layout rather simple. My main focus was the photo. It's too cute not to scrap.
