Art journal | using distress oxide inks

Hi!

Today I am back with an art journal! I played with my distress oxide inks and my Sizzix dies and here is what I came up with!

I worked on a 6×6 custom made art journal. It’s disc bounded and I demonstrate in the video how easy it is to make. I used
Distress Mixed Media Heavystock ( SBC | SSS ) for the pages. It’s perfect as it’s made to take any type of paint and medium and it’s nice and thick.

The houses and trees are all cut out using the Sizzix – Cityscape, Suburbia dies ( SBC | SSS ). They are so much fun to work with them and put together all the different buildings. And you get lots of pieces to customize them and make them look different.

All the coloring on the background and the focal points was done using distress oxide inks.

For the background I also used Black embossing paste ( SBC | SSS ) through a Tim Holtz Stencil SCREWED ( SSS ) just to add that extra something.

  1. Like you I have that die that I have yet to use. I spent yesterday using some stamps and dies and I had not yet used and am now thinking about what I can do as soon as I finish up my daily tasks. Thanks for the art journal posts and videos. I especially love them as they inspire me to use what I have. Watched your video on YouTube and look forward to the next few days when you post more.

    Absolutely love this page. Your art journals look so neat, and I am thinking it is mostly because of the black trim you constantly use. Very organized look. LOVE your style. Thanks for motivating me!

    I ended up buying this system. I have wanted to for a while, but don’t currently have the space to do much crafting, so I’ve been putting it off. I went ahead and bought it and used it to make a planner for my niece, who has recently started her own business. I love that she can add more pages to it as needed. Love your art journals. Thanks so much for all you do. 💗 💗 💗

  17. Wonderful layout. I just found that an old planner has those discs and my friend has the punch, so I think I need to make myself an art journal like this. I just love your layouts and they totally inspire me. Thanks!
