Live the Life

Pin It

I'm back again to my crafty blog after a few years...w00t! This time, I'm dabbling with art journalling. What a fun way to experiment with various tools and techniques and thinking ink creatively ;)

Here's my most recent one which I'll enter into Scrapbook Boutique's July challenge; in fact, it draws heavily on the mood board particularly with the use of grids, quotes and colours.

My piece is in mixed media:

  • watercolour (Kuretake)
  • pigment ink - Versafine black...results are always crisp even with fine details
  • dye ink - Stampin Up Rose Red, Bermuda Bay, Island Indigo, Not Quite Navy
  • Dylusions paint - White Linen
  • cour pencils (Derwent Academy)
  • white Uniball Signo pen
All stamps are from various Tim Holtz sets except for 'enjoy little things' which is by Kaisercraft.

This was so much fun to create. Here are a couple of closeups:
