Ultra quick art journal pages by Niamh

by admin

Hi All,

Today I’m going to share with you the secret in how to make an art journal page look detailed and like it took you hours, in only 20 minutes. And its all to do with a special little something released this month for Scrap FX and designed by your truly – coloured collage rice paper backgrounds!!!






These papers are highly saturated in permanent colour  and they are on the gorgeously thin rice paper, so they glue down like a dream and no colour transfers. Perfect!

My favourite way to use them to make quick backgrounds is to add them into my use it up journal with paint already added to the backgrounds. I then glue the wonderful Graffiti peeps by the talented Michelle Logan, add a snarky quote or journaling and some mark making with paint pens and you’re done. Simple hey! Below are two videos showing you these papers in action in my use it up journal.

Here are some sample journal pages I have made using the new papers and following similar techniques as I have done in the videos above.



I hope you have fun with these new papers and get super creative with them. I can’t wait to see what you come up with.

Happy creating,
