Scrapbook layout and art journal page by Heike`sAugenBlick

by Heike Bruhn

Hello lovely people,
how are you?
Slowly we get more opportunities to move outside here in The Netherlands.
The primary schools are reopened and
the older children should be able to go back to school starting 20th of May.
 It comes back a piece of normality in our lives.
But anyway, I created for you as inspiration an art journal page
and a scrapbook layout with a photo of my daughter Mia.
I used on my scrapbook page the fantastic chipboards from ScrapFx.
The chipboards are absolutely high quality products.
I love the thickness of the chipboards and the possibilities to edit them.
This time I painted them with watercolor, without a layer of clear gesso on it.
I was positively surprised how well the watercolor comes over on the chipboards.
I created my page on the new paper collection “down under” from 13@rts.
First, I started with a white wash on my background paper.
After that I mixed gel medium and color glow and small 3D balls together.
I added the mix to the stencil from ScrapFx.
Then I stamped with the chicken wire stamp of ScrapFx and some stamps from my stash.
After that I added watercolor paint to my background and to the chipboards.
A layer of black gesso on the right site with big white stripes and big black drops.
Paper dollies, A6 “down under” paper behind my photos, pearls and word stickers for my embellishments and my page was done.
My next inspiration is an art journal page with photo collage paper images from ScrapFx.
This time I played around with distress oxide, stencil and stamps.
For my focal point I used the school collage paper sheet images.
My words are transparency images from ScrapFx.
I used from ScrapFx:
Journal Phrases transparency
Philosophy Phrases transparency
School Days ricepaper collage-paper
Sketchings No. 1 by Michelle Logan collage-paper
ABC stamps
Chicken Wire Stamp
Journey stamp
Squared stamp
Art Deco stencil
