Morning, another page from one of my art journals.

My first attempt at a doodle frame on this page.


Exhausting, Art Journal, Mixed Media, Stamping, Stencils, Dylusions, Dyan Reaveley


Step by Step

The background is Dylusions paints, Calypso Teal, Black Marble & Lemon Zest. The background is actually a clean up page, simply blending the remaining paint from another page onto a blank page, Calypso Teal & Lemon Zest. The Black Marble paint was applied by twisting the blending tool to create the circles. The stencilling is also clean up with Black Marble paint and an Imagination Crafts stencil.

I used stamps, from Dylusions Love Struck Lucy & Indigo Blu, with various colours of Archival ink to add interest to the background.

Using the Dylusions journal block with a black Derwent Graphik Paint Liner to create the frame.

Doodled the frame using both a black and white Derwent Graphik Paint Liner.

Stamped the character, Dylusions Curious Corrin, onto white card stock using black Archival ink. Coloured her with Faber Castell Pitt pens and Derwent Inktense pencils. Fussy cut out Corrin.

Stamped the sentiment, from a Dylusions clear stamp set, on to white card stock using black Archival ink. Cut out the text.

Adhered Corrin and the text to the page using DecoArt Matte Medium.

Used Faber Castell Pitt pen in dark blue and yellow to add some shadow around Corrin.
