Colourful Art Journaling with Elisa Ablett

by Elisa Ablett

Hi Scrap FX friends,

My turn up on the blog today with a bit of an abstract art journal page featuring a couple of my fav Scrap FX products.

I was ‘pinteresting’ (if that is a word) the other day and saw a graphic design poster with a colourful portrait created with graffiti and bold strokes of colour. I was immediately drawn to it and thought how I could incorporate that into an art journal page or scrapbooking page.

 I actually started with a white background but once I started drawing in the facial features I decided on a black background to make the colours pop even more!

What better product is there to assist you with completing a portrait than a face features collage paper from Scrap FX?, such a handy thing to have in your stash for when you want to create a quick page OR if you are still a beginner at drawing faces. The Hash stencil has also become a firm favourite of mine.

And here is my second inspiration art journal page featuring the awesome Frida Kahlo collage paper dolls plus a huge range of the foam stamps.

With this page I started with a background of rainbow acrylic paint and Grunginess collage paper. I then stencilled with black acrylic paint and then dabbed with baby wipe through the Hash Stencil.

I added a die cut of flowers behind the paper doll which I fussy cut from the collage sheet.

The main feature is the colourful stamping using a range of foam stamps from Scrap FX. I wanted a gorgeous rainbow grungy background. I also stamped in white with the Scribble Word Stamp and added white scribbly writing in white gel pen to complete the look.
