Art Journal Pages

My swimgroup started again after a summer break. Noting better than to swim after a hot day. First page is about that, I had a excuse to use my beautiful Smushasha stamp from Stampotique. Not really happy about the way I colored the stamp, but love the background.
Second page I made after a blog hop organised by Art from the Heart. They celebrated there 10th year anniversary. I felt really inspired by seeing all the beautiful artwork with the Dylusions stamps, so I wanted to play with mine. Can't wait until the Craftorij (Dutch store) is going to sell the new stamps from Dylusions.

  2. Superleuke pagina's weer! (Al vind ik Smushasha in het echte formaat wel erg klein..;-)..)Ik heb trouwens ook mee gedaan met de Dylusions bloghop én de Stampotique hop natuurlijk. Dus duimen maar dat één van ons de gelukkige winnaar wordt!

  3. Gorgeous! Lovely pages and I love the swimming. Kim

  4. Just stumbled onto your blog today - love your pages. Going back through your posts I notice you say you have found your style...can you/will you post a short tutorial writing out your style step at a time? I see you use the stencils/templates, but that is all I distinguish. Thanks for your posts.

  5. Hi Lory, thank you for your comment. How I make my backgrounds is really easy actually. Most of the times I use for the first layer Glitz stamps with Archivel, for the second layer I use acrylics (two or three colors). I use a brayer to blend the colors a bit. The third and last layer for the background is the Ranger Color Wash spraying through the Crafters workshop templates. Most of the times i use two different colors and two different templates. That's how I create my backgrounds. Other elements that are part of my 'style' is the use of Stampotique stamps and Octopode Factory collage sheets. Hope that this was helpful. xoxo
