Paper Artsy art journal page.... by Lynn Good

Morning and I would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.  I still cant believe how quickly this year has gone.

It is Paper Artsy month at Scrap Matrix and I have created an art journal page using the wonder Paper Artsy Stamp created by Darcy - you can find the stamp in the store here

I began this page by cutting up some paper from an old encyclopedia and gluing them to the art journal page.

I have then added colour using Dylusions paints - Lemon Zest and Calypso teal

and the pushed the colour to the background using Dylusions Paint - White and a brayer

I have then stamped on heavy duty cardstock the images, coloured them in with Dylusions paint pens.  I then fussy cut them out and stuck them onto the art journal page.  I apologise for no photos of this step but technology got the better of me - again!

I have adhered everything to the page using Finnabar Soft Matt Gel - I also applied this to the top of the image and around the image as I can then use the Stampers Big Brush pens and have some time to blend them around - the gel allows this time.

Here are some close ups:

To make the images "pop" I have outlined them with a white paint pen.

I have also done some dots, dashes and scribble marks on and around the flowers.

I have used Faber Castell Pitt Pens - Olive, Walnut Brown and Warm Grey around the images to also get them to "lift" off the page.

Here is a link to the products that I have used and are available at Scrap Matrix

thanks for stopping by and I hope that you get a chance over Christmas to have a go at our challenge this month - dont forget to tell us which Paper Artsy stamps that you have used - you can then be in with a chance to win a voucher from Scrap Matrix!
