Afternoon, hope you’re enjoying the weekend.

Sharing an art journal page today, using Dylusion paints and stamps.

Step by Step

The initial background is a clean up background from creating other journal pages with Dylusions paints. You can see the technique explained by Dyan Reaveley here over on Ranger Ink’s YouTube video. I believe the colours in the background are Dylusions – Crushed Grape, After Midnight and Squeezed Orange. 

I created the shape of the frame, using the Dylusions Journal Block. A black Derwent Graphik Paint Liner pen was used to draw the doodles and I’ve add some colour to the doodles using white, purple and orange Derwent Graphik Paint Liner pens

Stamped the character from Dylusions Curious Corrin stamp set with black Memento ink, onto white card stock, and coloured with Copic markers.

Stamped the text from a clear Dylusions stamp set using black Archival ink onto white card stock.

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

Decided at this point the page didn’t feel right, so added the flowers and leaves from a couple of Dylusions clear stamp sets using black Archival ink. The leaves are coloured with fluid acrylic inks and the flowers were coloured with Faber Castell Pitt pens.

    Ohh Gail this is perfection. The colours, the design, the sentiment. Everything! All of the elements were made for each other. If this were a canvas I’d be first in line to buy it. It’s brilliant.
