This week, Viva Las Vegas Stamps is teaming up with the lovely team from the Crafters Workshop to bring you some amazing inspiration, how-to's, and creative ideas.
Today, I am sharing my VLVS and Crafters Workshop project.
I have really been inspired by Art Journaling lately. I have been going through a rough patch in my life and Art Journaling helps put my confusion and uncertainty at ease.
I wanted my Art Journal page to remain fairly simple, with a focus on the words and symbolism. To create the center, focal point, I cut a rectangle from a sheet of cardstock.
I wanted subtle texture in the background, so I slide a 12x12 stencil behind the cut piece and spritzed with Shimmerz sprays.
I then 'painted' this section with more Shimmerz sprays.
Then, I heat embossed 3 stamped Patterned Heart designs directly to the painted background.
I painted each open section (of the heart) with Shimmerz paints and added a stamped sentiment. (Cancelled stamp)
To add more texture to the outside edge, I sprayed more Shimmerz spray through the 'Textured' stencil from the Crafters Workshop, using scraps of paper to mask the area.
I added a border around the focal point with Montana Paint markers, then added my journaling.
And done. A simple, yet direct journal page.
Do you like to Art Journal? If yes, what inspires you? Colors, design, message, product?
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
