The nights are turning cooler and autumn is in the air. I created these art journal pages with the beginning of fall on my mind which always brings a song to my heart.

Magenta 9-25

I started by crumpling up old hymnal pages, ran a sepia ink pad across to accentuate the wrinkles, then glued them to my journal pages. I coated the pages with clear gesso. I sponged yellow, red and pomegranate acrylic paints in different areas through the Large Foliage stencil, rotating it in different directions to cover the pages. I stamped the Large and Small Daisy stamps several times onto deli paper and colored them with yellow and carmine red colored pencils. I fussy cut them and collaged them to the page with matte medium. I used a green india ink marker to outline them and add a border to the pages. I sponged olive acrylic paint through the Alpha stencil to create the word. I used black and white pens to outline the flowers and word and to create a border around the pages. Finally, I rubbed sepia and plum ink pads around the edges of the pages to highlight the wrinkles.

I have created an art journal spread that, to me, is reminiscent of pages in a vintage botanical encyclopedia.

Magenta 9-18

I started by collaging pieces of vintage papers and book text coating them with clear gesso. Then colored the entire spread with Distress Inks. Next I sponged Distress Inks through the Leafy Tree and the Large Foliage stencils. I added some outlines with pen and more color to the Leafy Tree with paint pens. I splattered Distress Stain on the pages. Then I stamped the Life is Beautiful sentiment in several places on the spread, but heat embossed the one near the base of the tree so it would be more prominent.

Some intuitive collage, painting and stamping today, as I really did not know where I was going with this art journal page when I started.

Magenta 9-11-18

I collaged some previously painted and crumpled deli paper onto an 8″ x 5 1/4″ piece of watercolor paper with matte medium, then covered it with clear gesso. I used chalk paint through the Field of Flowers and Feathers stencils to add more visual texture. I stamped and heat embossed the Sparrow Sketch and Large Feather, then painted all around the images, excluding the background. I used a white pen through the Raindrops stencil then painted each raindrop individually. I then stamped and heat embossed the Kindness sentiment and finally, I inked around the edges of the page.

Today I created an art journal page using a stamp and stencil from the new release.

Magenta 9-4-18

I applied texture paste through the corner of the Square Lace Stencil in three places on watercolor paper. I colored the page with Liquitex fluid acrylic inks in quinacridone magenta and deep violet. I applied it with a dropper to the edges of the page and then spritzed with water, tipping the page, allowing the ink to flow across the page. I stamped the Poinsettia Corner in the center, then used a small detail brush to paint it with fluid acrylic inks in titanium white, vivid lime green and deep violet. I replaced the Square Lace Stencil over the pasted areas and sponged deep violet over these areas. I inked the edges of the page with a permanent black marker and attached it in my journal.
