New Art Journal Pages

Here are some of my latest Art Journal pages I'd like to share with you! I created them over the last weeks piece by piece. The journal is almost done now, there are only a few clean pages left. I was watching a lot of mixed media and art journal videos on YouTube recently, and I got a lot of inspiration from there. So here we go...! All the pages were covered with gesso before I worked on them. 

Dylusions Ink Spray in various colors, brick wall mask by Crafters Workshop, Speckles mask by Tim Holtz, Wow Embossing Powder in Verdigris and clear, different stamps by 7Gypsie, Archival Ink in black.
rubber stamp by Papermania and some cutouts from kraft resist paper by Tim Holtz

Acrylic Paint in yellow, Dylusions ink sprays, Dylusions mask small squares, Crafters Workshop Mask, stamps from Kaisercraft "Hello Paris", different paper scraps in green and brown colors
made during a hike on a mountain in Switzerland
cut with a die from Sizzix

Acrylic paint in different blue shades, different masks by Prima Marketing and Tim Holtz, drippings made with distress paint in gold
Cut out from photos I made during our holiday in Egypt
Air bubbles:
painted with gesso and Gelatos

Paper by Prima Marketing "Art Pad collection", different spray inks by 13arts, Prima Marketing stamps and Archival Ink, masks by Prima Marketing, the swirls and butterflies are rub-ons; the scalloped circles were die-cut and the edges were distressed with Distress Inks. 

This page is one of my favorites. It is my first collage with cutouts from a magazine. The background is created with Gelatos in different pinks, red and orange, with a technique I saw in a video by Donna Downey (click here to see the video). 

Thank you for stopping by, I would be happy if you leave a comment :) 

Layout with Finnabair

Hey everyone! 
I made this layout in during my last workshop with Finnabair, so it's a little bit older. I just finally uploaded it to share it with you :) 

The papers are from her collection for the 7dots studio,  the stamps on the background and all the embellishment are from her collection for Prima Marketing. We used a lot of glimmer sprays to create this soft and flowing colors. 

Here's one of her famous "clusters" of embellishment. They were covered with the glimmer spray, too.

Thanks for stopping by!

Clean and Simple - Pink and Lime

Hey Scrappers!

Today I'd like to share with you a quick blog post. I created a clean and simple layout in white, pink and lime. I was inspired by a layout I found on Pinterest and wanted to try this color combo. And this is what I came up with:

All the paper scraps, washi tapes and stickers are from the MME Up & Away collection. I created the little heart-pin by myself with a punch and some glitter. 

A few spritzers lime, a few sprinkles in pink and some matte gel on the background - that's pretty much it! Thank's for stopping by!
