Post 456: Vintage Art Journal Page- Life is a Grand Adventure

Hi friends!
Hope you are having a pleasant weekend :)

Today I'd like to share a Vintage Art Journal Page- "Life is a Grand Adventure". I did art journalling after a while & I must say, I really enjoyed the process & hope to do it more often. This page is my DT work for AB Studio. Please do join the FB group for loads of ideas and inspirations.

Here are some photos of the Art Journal Page:

Process: For this page, I added washi tapes to the background and then lightly applied Finnabair's heavy white gesso. Then added colors using distress paint- Spiced Marmalade & Dylusions-Vibrant Turquoise Paint. In the background did stamping with Finnabair's - Never Too Late rubber stamps & Dylusions- Inbetweenies Rubber stamps using archival inks. Then added little dots to the background using AB Studio Stencil 3Jet black Archival Ink & a blending tool with foam. I also added some Lindy's Gang sprays (using a paint brush) to create more interest in the background. For the focal element, I've used Tim Holtz paper dolls & the title is from Tim Holtz metallic stickers. To create a cluster around the focal element, I've used die cuts, threads, gauze, sisal, burlap fibers, wood slices & charms. I used Prima's soft matte gel to stick everything down. In the end, I created ink splatter & did some scribbly writing with a black fine line pen. 

You can also check out the beautiful papers, stencils and stamps available in Aga's online shop (AB Studio) by clicking HERE. They have worldwide shipping & amazing designs!

I am playing along with the following challenges:

1. Mixed Media Place June Challenge- was inspired by the colors, wood & message in the photos

Stay Blessed!
