Hi there! Today, I want to share with you all a bit of my new obsession, my “Junque Journal”. This little gem is the perfect place to get inky, practice techniques, create art journal pages, etc. I am addicted to the format, and the versatility of the it, and this time I wanted to combine some scrapbooking and art journaling in one single page.
To create this page, the entire inside of a Mixed Media insert was primed with gesso. Then using the blending sponge, a soft background of acrylic paint (Daiquiri Ice, and Blue Hawaiian) was created by adding the paint in soft circular motion to the page, so as to resemble clouds.
Since the inspiration for the page came from circles found in a recent selfie, I chose to add a few circles to the page using the Cool set Ink Palette, and Vicki’s new Stamp set. Most of the stamped images were placed on the right hand side of the page.
To continue with the circle motif of the page, I chose to add some art crayon to the left hand side of the page. The new stencil brush is so easy to work with, and provides the right amount of color, and definition of an image, especially when using it to transfer color through a stencil.
The circle design of the stencil contrasts and combines seamlessly with the paint background, but the page also needed some texture. For this, and using one of the citcle stamps, Acrylic Matte gel was stamped to the page followed by medium gold glitter. All the shine and texture completes the background.
A small frame –created with the 7x10 paper pad- and a piece of gold tissue frame and serve as layers behind the picture. A few embellishments just add the right sentiment and feel in the page.
Now that the inside of the page has been created, it is time to focus on the front/fold piece of the page. Firstly , it was covered with a piece of paper from the 7x10 paper pad -a bit of Acrylic Mat Gel serves as glue for this purpose- followed by a few pieces of ephemera and a series of butterfly stamps in the colors found in the inside of the page.
Oh! I am loving the possibilities the Junque Journal is presenting. It is so versatile, and the perfect place to get inspired. That is all for me today! Remember to check all of Vicki’s mediums and “All The Good Things “ collection. Everything is gorgeous!
