Hi! Today I am back with another art journal page for my disc bound journal. It’s one of the pages for my “a year in flowers” project where I create a flower page for each letter of the alphabet. So today it’s P and here are my lovely poppies
You can enjoy the video below or at my YouTube channel
The disc bound journal I am working on is 6×6 and you get get it pre-made or watch a video on how to do it yourself here. Such disc bound journals are really easy to use since you can take the pages off and put them back again when you finish working on them. They come in various sizes and shapes.
For my art journal background I had some fun with my gel plate. I used my new Arteza acrylic paints to see how they work on it and I was so pleased with the results! I used “naples yellow” and “pearl copper gold” for the background. For the poppies I used “brilliant red” and the leaves and stems is a combination of “chromium oxide green” and “mars brown”.
The poppies are from the Build A Flower – Poppy stamp set by Altenew. For their build a flower collection they release a new stamp set on the 1st of every month and just for today they have a 20% sale on them. Check below for links.
The stamp set includes not only the outline of the flowers and leaves but also stamps for layering. I usually do all the shading in my art journal pages with my big brush markers but since I had the convenience of these stamp layers I took the easy road. It also includes matching dies which are a great time saver. In my case I didn’t want to have that outside border so I cut out everything with my good old scissors.
