Tutorials and creative tips

Hey there nerds!
As I sit here writing this blog post it was anything but fall-like outside here today, temperatures were in the 30’s in Ontario. Hot enough to kick on the A/C unit at my house and extend flipflop season a little longer.

Today’s art journal page is all about my mum. Fall was definitely her season and even though the temperature is abnormally high, we still have leaves changing colour and falling to the ground. I hope you enjoy today’s video and I hope you get inspired.

The pages in the Vicki Boutin Junque Journal can be mixed up together depending on the inserts you purchase. I like mixing some of that kraft papers randomly into my journal.

I found it a bit challenging to work with the folded page on the left, but I think I got it worked out. I had to keep reminding myself that the page did not have to match the page on the front.

In the end, I think the page came together when I added the Umber paint using a circle stencil and paint splatter. Before that point to my eye, it just didn’t look right.

Mixed Media art journal page

mixed media Monday at scrapbooknerd.com

Hello crafty friends,
Last week in our mixed media post I shared how I decorated my new junque journal cover.
This week I’m sharing the first page in this journal.
Decorating the cover of your art journalAs you can see I used a lot of the same colours, they’re some of my favourites from the Dina Wakley heavy bodied paints and I even used some of the same stencils. This kraft colour, folded art page is from the refill pack from the Vicki Boutin Junque Journal.


I thought a little bit about how the interior page went with the folded flap but tried not to over think and just used the same paint colours.  Using some torn tissue pieces I created a visual triangle to help lead the eye. One of the pieces is folded over the crease so it peeks out when the page is closed.
I just had fun with several different stencils to create this page. Quick and easy.
I really like how some of the pages in this journal are already folded, it’s something so simple, but I just don’t think about doing that.
