Tranquil Tuesday – Magenta Design Team Post

Art journal page with some of the new Magenta stamps!

I heat embossed the flowers, leaves and sentiment with gold. The flowers were cut from a separate piece of mixed media weight paper and attached to the page. It was difficult to capture in the photo all the shimmer in the flowers created with Twinkling H2Os. I used Nuance powder to create the splash of background color.

Magenta Design Team Post – Tranquil Tuesday with Jane

Today, I am sharing a tag with a sentiment that is close to my heart, as I often try push myself to try new things and venture out of my comfort zone.

I colored the tag with Salty Ocean and Peeled Paint Distress Oxide Inks. I lightly spritzed water on the Flourish stamp and placed it on the tag, dabbing the water off with a paper towel to remove the ink. I repeated the process several times on the tag, cleaning the stamp each time so I would not transfer colors. I used Jet Black Archival Ink to stamp the sentiment and Garden Birdhouse. I stamped the birdhouse again on another piece of mixed media paper, fussy cut the house portion and adhered it to the tag. I colored it with Fired Brick Distress Oxide Ink.

Life Is Beautiful – Magenta DT Post

Today, I am sharing another art journal page.

After masking off the edges of the page, I used a foam applicator to apply Dylusions paints in Vanilla Custard and Blushing Peony. I stamped the Calligraphic Bird with Versafine Ink and added white detail embossing powder. I inked the Swirly Leaves and Flourish stamps with Faber-Castell Pitt Pens in Middle Purple Pink and Orange Glaze and stamped them in a few places on the page. I used the same pens to add color to the bird and swirls. I stamped the sentiment with Violet Archival Ink.

I hope you enjoyed my “flight of fancy”.

#the100dayproject – Final Days

Art Journal Cover – Magenta DT Post

I love to decorate the covers of my art journals.

Magenta Journal Cover

I used masking tape to protect the edges of my journal cover and create a crisp frame. First, I painted a coat of gesso and then applied acrylic paint in light blue and green. Before the paint dried I used a baby wipe to remove paint through the Wavy Texture stencil. Much of this gets covered up with more layers, but does create texture in the final result.

I then stamped the Swirls Background stamp in several areas.

I added several more layers of different colors of paint through both of the Bubble Path Duo stencils with a sponge.

M5

I used the Alpha stencil from the Alpha and Number Duo Stencil set to create the title. I masked off individual letters, one at a time, and used a brush to add paint through the stencil.

M6

When the paint was thoroughly dry, I stamped the Hearts Flowers image. I painted the inner portion of the hearts, leaves and stems with gesso, then acrylic paint.

M7

I used a permanent marker to outline the image. I carefully removed the tape and sealed the cover with a spray fixative.

I love having the outside of my journals reflect the joy I get from creating in them.
