Art Journaling with Irit Landgraf

Let

Hi! Irit here with my last project as part of the guest design team. It's been great and I thank Design Memory Craft for this opportunity! After making many scrapbook layouts I decided to play in my art journal.

I started with priming my page with gesso. This is a critical step for the techniques I will be using later and for easily blending the Gelatos®. Once my gesso was completely dry I added some stamping using an alpha stamp set and Stamper's Big Brush Pens.

Mixed Media Mannequin


Mixed-media-mannequin-julia

Mixed media and altered projects and It's Julia Stainton here today with a project  that combines vintage style with mixed media techniques to create an altered art piece.

For me, there's nothing quite as fun as adding layers of paint, pigment, gesso and paper together along with all kinds of bits and pieces. I've had this project on my project to do list for quite some time and I'm so excited to have finally gotten around to making it.

TiffWeek4

Hello Blogosphere! It's Tiffany here with Week 3 of our Art Journaling Month & this week we're featuring Embellishing techniques! For my video tutorial I'll be sharing various techniques using the Stamper's Big White Pen, PITT Artist Pens, and Paper Crafter Crayons™! I've also chosen to add some washi tape accents!

I hope you learned some new tricks and techniques! Last week was pretty intense with all those Gel Medium transfers & Stampendous Stamping Techniques, so this week I went back to my mood board to refocus. I highly recommend creating your own Mood Board! I like to use Pic Monkey.

Hey artsy peeps, Rita Barakat here on week 3 of Art Journaling Month! I started this page with glaze in the top  right hand corner, with the Chevron stencil.  Remember my inspiration picture?

PIC 5
When I saw this store front I thought it would be fun to recreate it!

I recreated the shapes and did lots of coloring with Stampers Big Brush Pens!

Once I had everything colored in it was time to add some accents of my own and I reached for these stamps from Stampendous.

RitaBarakat4
A perfect touch! I also added some dots with the White Stampers Big Brush Pen and I used Texture Gems ™ for the small accent lines and tiny dots. All that's left is some journaling! Make sure you check back next week to see the book in it's entirety!

Supplies:
Stencils 101
Square Journal Boards
Glaze
Texture Gems ™ 
Stamper’s Big Brush Pens - black, white, cold grey, light blue, violet, light green

Blessings!

Art Journaling Week 3 with Jen

Art Journaling Banner 3Welcome back to another week of sharing our journals with you!  We are embellishing this week. I started to go through my hundreds of photos from my trip to Italy in 2011.  I picked some of my favorites. Those that have a story to tell or that represent my trip best.  Adding color, textures, and words was next.

JenMatottJOurnal - 1 (2)I drew some on the Chalk Board Painted circle with a Stamper's Big White Pen, Metallic PITT Artist Pen in Silver, and an Art Grip White Colored Pencil.  I added a title "Italy" with the Stamper's Big White Pen.

JenMatottJOurnal - 2 (2)
Then, I used another Stampendous stamp and a Stamper's Big Brush Pen in Chrome Yellow to stamp some text.

JenMatottJOurnal - 3 (2)

JenMatottJOurnal - 4 (2)

I used our new Texture Gems™ in Gold to embellish a bit and create some sparkle to my title area. They look like little gold gems and stay puffy when dry!

On to my next page in my journal book...  I used the Paper Crafter Crayons™ in an assortment of colors from all three color sets to shade the bricks in.  I layered colors for a fun look.

JenMatottJOurnal - 6 (2)

JenMatottJOurnal - 7 (2)

Then, I used our Chalk Board Paint to splatter on the page with our stipple brush from the Gelatos Tool Set.  

JenMatottJOurnal - 8 (2)

I added a photo and some word strips using the Gel Medium as an adhesive and top coat (to the word stickers only).

JenMatottJOurnal - 1 (1)

JenMatottJOurnal - 3 (1)

I also added the title puffy stickers with Gel Medium too.  I wanted to ensure they would on fall off later!  This stuff holds it's ground!

Next up, is another page using Gelatos® colors from the Pastels set. I used my finger to blend the colors over the collaged background.

JenMatottJOurnal - 6 (1)

Adding some Texture Luxe in Gold with a sponge applicator through a stencil (101 Collection)  creates the perfect embellished background for a page about Italy!

JenMatottJOurnal - 9 (1)

JenMatottJOurnal - 11 (1)

It picks up just the right amount of texture and leaves a very metallic shimmer to the page!

JenMatottJOurnal - 10 (1)

I did brush a light coat of Gel Medium over it in order to write smoothly with an Essential  PITT Artist Pen in small tip.

JenMatottJOurnal - 13 (1)

The last page I'm going to share with you, shows how I used the Metallic Gelatos® Colors wet over a Gel Medium stenciled background.

JenMatottJOurnal - 4 (1)

JenMatottJOurnal - 5 (1)

I was inspired by the colors and textures of Tuscany, Italy when I visited there and hope you enjoy my art that captures some of the beauty I saw on my trip.  Be sure to join me next Tuesday as I share my finished pages with you. Check back throughout this week to see how  Tiffany, Rita and Lisa are working on their art journals.

Stenciled Watercolor Background

Hello Blogosphere! It's Tiffany here today with a Video Tutorial showing you an easy way to create a beautiful background with the Faber-Castell® Design Memory Craft® Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils! I'm currently on Spring Break Vacation, so I was inspired by the ocean in Florida!

If you're not familiar with the Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils, they're pretty amazing and my most favorite product in the Design Memory Craft® Mix & Match line! Not only are they completely water soluble, but you can get beautiful vibrant detail with them that will last because they're also lightfast & permanent once they're dry! I especially love how portable they are!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you're inspired to create something of your own today!

See you soon,

    Hi. I love Rita's style! I wanted to know if she would share how she did the black area that's over the blue and red on the sample journal page she did? (shown above - the one that says 'remember' on it) It almost looks like it might be with plastic wrap or something. Looks very cool! :D

    Thanks.

    Like the look of the chalkboard black peeking through with the black stamping on top. I bet this would be fun to try with the texture cards too. Love your finished canvas. Your young lady's eyes are so expressive. I'm sure I'll see you again on the Design Memory Craft blog.

  • Angela S on Butterfly Love

    Hi Tiare!

    I went to visit your website - and there's nothing there. :(

  • Tamiko on Butterfly Love

    I love your butterflies. Love how you created texture with your gesso.. Hopefully you can come back for another term, I enjoy seeing your creations!!

  • Riikka on Art Journaling Week 4 with Mou and our NEW Guest Design Team!

    Congratulations!

  • Ruth Gauss on Mini Book Cover

    So beautiful! What wonderful texture you got with the bricks and I love the soft watercolored flowers! And I learned that you can use the waterbrush to take color directly from the Gelatos - that's so good to know! Thanks so much for sharing!
