Art journals Art Antholgy and Altered Pages swap

 


Welcome to the Art Anthology/Altered Pages Blog Swap. We’ve partnered with each other these last few weeks of October to offer you lots of inspiration using products from Art Anthology and Altered Pages.

I have  some cool art journals to show you
I received to stamp sets, one with clowns and one with an Asian theme.

I decided to use both of them on two different art journal pages.

We also received some collage sheets , perfectly matching the stamps. Way too cool!!

My first page, the clown-page:
I decided to cut out some of the images on the collage sheet which I printed on photo paper (matte) Used Colorations in the colors Waimea blue, studio blue, glorious and paprika I also added some Velvet in the gorgeous red color Velvet.
The page is gessoed with the ever so gorgeous Art Anthology Gesso.
Cannot say how much I love that Gesso!!
Stamped some of the clowns randomly on the page.
I also used the new stencil Twilight

The next page is a page with stamps from the Asian stamps.
On this page, I used a collage sheet with letters as the background.
It's gessoed and colored with Colorations - Hottie, Heart, Salted Caramel
Here I used the new stencil Cracked

On this image you see the difference on how Colorations react when the page is Gessoed or not. I gessoed the letter collage sheet rather randomly and you see at the bottom that the colors from the mist is much brighter. It's the same color as the rest of the page, just that the it's without gesso.

Canvas



I got a request from a friend, to make a Birthday-gift for her hubby, with photo of their son.

 For a long time I have wanted to make a canvas with photo on and this was the perfect opportunity to try that.

 The canvas is 20x30cm.
 Done a lot of work on the background.
 First covered the canvas with Black Gesso and next white Gesso by Art Anthology.
Next a layer with Tim Holtz tissue paper and some white Gesso on top of that again.

 Then I took some canvas letters by Prima and glued vertically on the left side - the son's name: Mathias
 Next I used a stencil and Art Anthology Stone Effects "Bone" and Colorations "Sandcastle" and "Raider".
 Also added some Metal effects "Bronze", especially on the metal.
Chipboard text by 2Crafty

Some techniques are much inspired by Finnabair and the class I took earlier this year.











 some photos from the start:

Card

A friend asked me to make her a card for a boy's Baptism some weeks ago and of course I wanted to do that.

 Not the thing I do so often nowadays, but fun anyway.
Used some old papers by Pion, some chipboards by dusty attic, laces and flowers.
And of course I needed to use some stencils on the background :D

Hi and good morning (as it is morning here in Norway)

Just wanted to share a layout I made and forgot to publish.
All about our oldest daughter and photos from this summer.

Once again, a layout with happy colors!
I have used Colorations mist by Art Anthology, some archival ink and India ink.
And stencils and stamps of course :)

Art Journal - just for fun

A quick art journal to show you today, but first......

I won a spot at Mixed Media Studio 9-week guided workshop!!
So happy and can't wait to start!

With teachers like: Carolyn Peeler, CD Muckosky, Céline Navarro, Christy Tomlinson, Donna Downey, Frank Garcia, Karen Grunberg, Rebecca Sower, Susan Weckesser


Aren't I the most lucky girl??? So looking forward to my first online class!

So... next, my little art journal, made in my large Dylusions journal.
A page that's been painted and worked on - unintensionally for a long time
I even tried to draw a face (so popular nowadays).

Not a thing I will be doing often, honestly - I cannot draw faces!!
Nevertheless.. a page it is and much inspired by Dina Wakley
