Please Notice This...

 Hello and welcome to my  ScrapFx art journal inspiration. This time I was inspired by a quote from  Kurt Vonnegut, an American writer, known for his satire and black humor  through to his science-fiction novels. "And I urge you to  PLEASE NOTICE when you are happy, and exclaim or murmur or think at some point, If this isn`t nice,  I don`t know what is". -Kurt Vonnegut- I love art journal pages that I make with watercolor, they are easy to make and they are also good for learnig how to use watercolor. In contrast to my 3D effect scrapbook pages in mixed media style I like it when my art journal pages are flat. But anyway. Here is my ScrapFx inspiration for you. Please Notice This... This is quite a simple and easy art journal page on a DIN4 watercolor paper sheet. I started with the ScrapFx stencil crosshatch and a thick layer of 13arts multipurpose gel medium which I covered in yellow embossing glaze. After the embossing glaze heating was done. I added 13arts watercolor in 

Loft Style

 Hello my dear blog reader, thanks for stopping by and welcome to my design team post for the company  13arts For my second inspiration I created a Loft Style scrapbook layout on the beautiful Industrial paper collection from 13arts with lots of Industrial ephemera and Industrial fussy cut elements. I also used the amazing clock back in time stencil for my background  and the metal clock set for my decoration.  Loft Style... A closer look to my background work: As always I started with two layers of clear Gesso,  that is a perfect paper protection for the next steps. I used the clock back in time stencil with a multipurpose gel medium and Color Glow Sodalite and I added the left over medium mix with a  palette knife to my background as well. Following with randomly stamp images  and black gesso here and there . For the rust colour on my background I used Ranibow colour orange, gel medium and Acrylic liquid medium together.  I added the mix with a silicon brush from 13arts to my backgro

Yes to all the things...

 Hello everyone, and welome to my  ScrapFx design team inspiration. I created an art journal page in blue and yellow colours. Sometimes I don`t feel like creating mixed media pages but simple art  journal pages are just the right thing to stay in the flow. All the things lost. No matter how sweet the salt we pushed so hard we finally broke oh, no words could ever help relieve this pain. All our silence could not excuse These are the first lines of the song from MS MR called  "all the things lost" Music can be so inspiring and sometimes I let myself be carried away and completley immersed in music and art. Are you also inspired by music? Yes to all the things... I used a DIN4 watercolour paper.  I started with glueing the collage paper first after that I added the watercolour randomly. Next step was glueing the transparency, film strips and photo. Here are the products which I used on my art journal page. film strips snarky quotes skulls transparency scribbles circle words tr

I started on an old 7Dots paper sheet called soulmates with adding Distress Ink colour to the cross window stencil from ScrapFx. After that I stamped with Versafine ink and the plus collage stamp from ScrapFx. I added to the wet stamp image WOW embossing powder. After the embossing was done I stamped with the chickenwire stamp and the scratching & scribble stamp. The next step was adding black gesso and lots of splattering. After that I painted some of the chickenwire hexagon stamp images with a turquise posca pen. Following
