Color My World – Magenta DT Post

I love using bright, happy colors in my art journal, especially during the warmer days of Spring and Summer.

Magenta Post 6-16-18

I placed the mask of the Round Shape Stencil on the page to protect the area from getting color on that portion. I sprinkled Nuance powder onto an acrylic block and “smooshed” it onto the page, first with Cerulean Blue, then with Purple and allowed it to dry thoroughly.

I removed the mask and painted the circle shape. First with Bright Yellow, then adding Golden Yellow to the left edge, lifting the journal to let it drip towards the center of the circle.


Once dry, I stamped the Wild Rose image with Jet Black Archival Ink. I applied bleach with a small brush to the stamped area to remove the color. When the bleach had whitened the area, I applied water to those areas and blotted with a paper towel to remove the bleach from the page. I then used Nuance powders as watercolors to paint the flower and leaves.


After drying thoroughly, I used a fine tip Micron pen to retrace the lines in the stamped image, as some had faded during the bleaching process.


I stamped the Bee and “See the World…” sentiment and added some sketchy lines around the circle and as a border on the page.

Starry Night – Magenta DT Post

With the days getting longer, I am dreaming of summer nights and walks in the moonlight. How I would love to stumble across a scene like this.

Magenta Post

I created this art journal page using one of my all time favorite stamps, the Heron. I started by masking off the page to create a nice crisp border. I added Dylusions acrylic paint in London Blue with a foam applicator across the entire page.

Magenta 1

Using my finger, I smudged Dylusions After Midnight onto a few areas of the page.

Magenta 2

I watered down some white paint to create splatters for stars.

Magenta 3

I stamped the images with Versafine Onyx Black ink, then painted the Heron white.

Magenta 4

Carefully remove the masking tape when page is dry.
