Mixed Media Art Journal Page: Rain

Sometimes I think I should have been born in another country. Not because I don't love my country but because I don't like the weather! Most of the year it's hot and the summers are the worst. I love the cold, the rain and the snow...
So I thought maybe if I created a stormy art journal page the rain will be here sooner than later...

This art journal page was really fun to create and very easy. The background is all Gelatos with color spray that have a double role - wet the Gelatos and add color. I just layered color on color until I was happy with the way it looked.

Then I added texture with stencils, dimensional paint and gesso. I did it in a cool technique called double stenciling. it gives a great effect of two tone shapes.

Finally it was time to create the dripage effect. I wanted drop of water running down the page like rain. it was an easy task to accomplish with color sprays and a hit tool. After everything was dry I stamped a man with an umbrella on the bottom of the page and added a quote.

Now all I need to do is wait for the rain...

Make sure to watch the video tutorial for all the tips and tricks of how I created all the effects on the page.
How is the weather where you live? Do you like it?

Faux Leather TP mini Album - THE PAGES!

WOW!! I got so many amazing responses. Thank you! I'm so happy you liked this mini album as much as I did. Wasn't it really fun and easy to make? Well...after much anticipation here comes the second part...THE PAGES! We'll venture into these beautiful pages and learn how to create them one by one!

Let's get started!

This album is full of interactive surprises. Pockets, flaps and more... as well as handmade embellishments that will take your breath away. Some of the work is delicate and requires patience but believe me, it's worth it!


Since TP rolls are already pockets, that part is rather easy. All you need for this part is to add tags. I used scraps of paper from Tim Holtz papers to create the tags. To embellish the tags I add a cogwheel or sticker to each one.

The most challenging pages were the corset opening page and the butterfly embellishment page. They took a long time to plan, but you're lucky I've done all that for you already. They do need patience to create but I think you'll agree it's worth the time.

In general the entire mini album took longer to make then I originally thought partly because I tend to try almost every possibility when I design until I'm happy. So I need to work on that... I've managed to edit the video so it will be much shorter but still simple and easy to understand.
Make sure to watch the video tutorial for all those important steps to create all the pages!

I will be happy to see how your mini albums turn out. If you make one please share!
