Knowing Yourself by Elisa.

by Elisa Ablett


Hi Crafters!

Elisa here from the Scrap FX design team with my latest inspiration for you.

This project features the beautiful face from the – Flowers in her Hair Collage paper designed by Tracey Scott.

I recently taught a class using all the flowers from around the face and I kept the face ready to use it on another project, so win win, two projects from the one sheet of Collage paper! Here is the mixed media layout we created during the class with the flowers amongst other awesome Scrap FX products.

Let’s take a closer view of the art journal page.

To start the art journal page, I gesso’d the pages and adhered the face to the page. Then I stenciled modelling paste around the face and over to the second page. I then added layers of paint, inks, stenciling and background stamping. The face was coloured with paint, prisma colour pencils and crayons. I also used paint pens to colour over the top of the modelling paste and paint.

I wanted to leave a bit of white space on the art journal page, not only to add the title using the Label Phrases Collage paper but to break up the intense colour. I love the versatility of the Phrases collage paper, it makes adding a title to a project so easy and it looks so polished.

I adore how this journal spread turned out, so bright, intense but filled with meaning.
