Art Journal layout – Dream Inspire Create

Hi everyone! I am finally back for good from vacations and you will be seeing more regular posts from now on! Today I am sharing my latest art journal layout using Stamperia products.

The most common questions that I get are always about the products I use and where to get them. For my European friends it’s expensive and time consuming to order products from the US. But there is Stamperia, an amazing Italian company that you can get great products for your mixed media projects. They have a new line for mixed media and tons of stamps, embellishments etc.

To create my layout today I used heavy body and fluid acrylics as the main coloring medium. The images, both the brush and the wings were cutouts from tissue papers!

Watch the video to learn a quick and easy technique on how to create the background as well as on how you can use an ink pad to create the shadows for your focal points. I have also used a couple of big stencils but this time instead of using modeling paste I will show you how you can use heavy body acrylic paint.

You can enjoy the video below or at my YouTube channel

Thank you all for visiting today!

    Love your art journal layouts. You have inspired me to begin creating and take a bit of time for me. Your videos were the first of many that I have watched. I have learned how to create with different media’s using different techniques (love the white gel pen) and discovered the art journal and card crafting world, through your videos. Of course, my clothing budget has now been allocated to crafting. Thank you for taking the time to inspire me. Sincerely Vasilikh (Sheila).

    Thank you, as always, for sharing your talent with us. I’ve been wanting to try art journaling but seem to lack confidence. I did however, buy a journal and some gesso so I’m atleast one step closer!

      Hi Sigal, they are both the same marker just in a different barrel and with a smaller or thinner nib. They both work the same but I like the bigger nib for quicker and thicker shading .
