Art Journal

This week over on  the art journaling prompt for this week is all about adding creating texture & layers on a page.
I've had some textured paper laying about which i no longer wanted , but rather then throw it out i started to tear it up & stuck it down on my page. I then gave it a good spray with some glimmer mist.

When this was dry i got a heart stamp & stamped over the top to add another layer.
I punched a couple of holes in a scrap piece of card & used this as my stencil for adding  green acrylic paint .
While waiting for this to dry i then stamped another heart image onto card &coloured it in using my water colour pencils. I high lighted the edges of the heart images with my posca paint pens . i journaled the words "love is in the air " because after all it was valentines day earlier in the week.
When i had stuck the hearts on to my page which adds another layer i did a bit of doodling round the out side edge using again my Posca paint pens, which i love using now.

I think i have managed to add quite a few layers  & some texture to my page.


  1. I have never tried those techniques. Very inspiring!!!

  2. Amazing how a piece of scrap can lead to this!It's great.
