Framed!

Stamped Art Journaling Page

I love color and just putting paint on a page. This page started that way and then stayed that way for a few weeks. Then I decided to just do it, and finish the page. I used some frame stamps Ranger to decorate the page. I added some extra details to some of the frames. I used paint to stamp my fingerprint inside most of the frames. I doodled a border around the edge of the page.

Bryce Canyon National Park Art Journal Page

Art Journaling Metallic Paint Stamped Tissue Paper Acrylic Ink StampingOn this page, I wanted to pay tribute to Bryce Canyon National Park, which has a special place in my heart. I started with a background of blue paint. Then built up layers of brown, peach, metallic copper, and white to build the hoodoos of the park. I used acrylic ink to write the title and for the ink drops. I stamped a text border along the edge. Then stamped some tissue paper with a text stamp and used semi-gloss gel medium to apply it to the page.

Art Journal Page With Halloween Gift Bag

Art Journaling Gel Medium

I made an art journal page with a Halloween gift bag. Since the bag had cute little bats on it, I made a page about how I feel about bats. I used gel medium to “glue” the cut outs from the gift bag into my journal.

I like bats, but NOT in my house. Luckily, I haven’t had any try to take up residence.

An Addiction to Seasonal Paper Goods

Art Journaling Acrylic paint

I love seasonal paper goods; cups, plates, napkins. Halloween, Christmas, the Fourth of July, Autumn, Summer, Winter, Thanksgiving, Easter. Love. Love. Love.

So I made this art journaling page recording this addiction. I decoupaged a Halloween napkin onto to the page. Aren’t those little images on the napkin adorable?

Art Journal Page With Glitter Stickers

Metallic Paint Glitter Foam Stickers

I love glitter! The blog IS named Glitter N Glue, so I’m sure you assumed that. I found these awesome glittered foam leaf stickers at the dollar store, so I had to use some of them on an art journal page!

I started with a background of Folk Art metallic copper paint. I LOVE this paint. The color is super, and it is so shiny. I wanted to add a path of a paint across the page that was lighter and dull copper-ish. I mixed various paint combos, but nothing came out right. I was getting frustrated and becoming surrounded by little pots of the wrong colors. So eventually, I gave up and went with the mix that I liked best. This one was a bit to pinky for my taste.  I added the stickers, and then filled in extra space with spirals.

Halloween Candy Art Journal Page

Neon Chalk Markers Cadaco Packaging Journaling

I made this page in November with some packaging I had saved from Halloween candy. I loved the graphics on these little boxes, so I wanted to play off the images and preserve them on an art journaling page. I recorded some random thoughts about the candy too. I used a cellophane image from the bag that the candy sticks came in too. I love the black background. I used some Neon Chalk Markers by Cadaco for the title. The markers are made for black dry erase boards. I LOVE these markers. I found them at a local surplus/salvage store. The blue was disappointing. It doesn’t show up well on the black, but all the other colors are awesome!

Riding The T Art Journal Page

Acrylic Paint Acrylic Ink

My boys loved riding the T while in Boston recently. I wanted to make a page to remember this. My older son loved studying the maps, figuring out which lines to take, what stop we needed, and how many stops away that would be. My younger son loved the speed and sights rushing by the windows. Both loved standing and hanging on to the rails and hand loops while riding.

I created the background by scraping acrylic paint onto the page, including Folk Art metallic peridot (my favorite). I scraped some spots of silver metallic acrylic ink on top of that. I used gel medium to attach the Charlie tickets for the T. I used black acrylic ink and Sharpies to add the title, text, and T symbols. The circles were stamped with various lids with the acrylic ink.
