How to Make an Art Journal Using Watercolour Paper. Mixed Media Art.



Take one pack of Stampin' Up! Watercolour Paper and turn it into a 20 page art journal!
This is my very first attempt at book-binding, and I am pretty pleased with how it turned out, although I still have a lot to learn LOL.
I used a sheet of A4 card stock cut in half to cover the journal, bakers twine and a sewing needle to bind it.
I show you how to make the cover in part 2 of the video.
Have a marvellously creative day!

No Line Watercoloring Using Markers! Stampin' Up! Australian Demonstrator


Hello, and thanks for visiting my blog today.
Here is a technique you may not have tried before: no line watercoloring using markers.


I started by using watercolour paper.  I coloured up my stamp using direct marker to stamp technique, which allowed me to stamp the image with  pink blossoms (Melon Mambo) and green foliage (Old Olive).


I coaxed the colours out towards the middle of each section using my aqua brush, treating one section 
at a time. I coloured the very centre of the bloom with yellow marker (Daffodil Delight).
I added a loose pale blue (Tempting Turquoise) watercolour wash all around the bloom as a background. 


Finally I mounted the art piece onto Basic Black card stock and added a white heat embossed sentiment which I attached to the bottom left hand edge. The black rhinestones were coloured using a sharpie.

I love how it turned out, and it even looks though it could have been hand drawn.


      Thanks so much to my lovely online customers for shopping with me!  Vicki  x 💝
