The Pink Ladies - Journal Process - Leanne

I am back again for another share. 
I asked what you which process you would like to see after I offered a sneak peek of two completely different projects. 
And PINK one won.
what is it with pink!...
this would be one of the very rare occasions that I actually use pink.. 
anyway. so you can see my whole process...
Only a short video this time..
 Close ups for details....

And the whole thing!!!...
Art journalling is such a unqiue tool for being able to get out of your head what is holding you back or even what is on your mind that you don't particularly want to share with others....
For me it is such a cathartic process..

Material list With links for those products available at Art and Soul Studio.
Stabilo all Pencil: Graphite, Black (sorry out of stock).
Liquid paper pen, dictionary book, calico, butterick dress pattern.(supplies from home).

so there you have it. 
have I inspired something in YOU to create...

I would love to hear from you..

Mood board Challenge.... by Cindy Porter

Hi everyone, I am excited to be joining you all today for my latest project for Art and Soul Studio. Today I am sharing a Beach Journal page I created using Dylusions Paints... I created it with the latest Mood board challenge happening for Art and Soul Studio...

I went quite literal with this journal page... I love painting beach scenes, so couldn't resist...
and I loved the quote... I only added subtle texture to this piece, but it's there in the paint, the way I layered it and the strokes I created...  Well here's a pic of the full journal page... 

and a close up...

and I also filmed the process... no voice over for this one, but you can watch my painting process... so grab a cuppa sit back and enjoy...

Love Magic by Allara Bamforth

Hey Soul Sisters,

I'm up on the blog today with something a little different to what I normally create. When looking at all the fantastic products on the Art and Soul Studio website, I found some beautiful papers by 49 and Market from their Rusty Autumn collection that I just fell in love with and thought I would try and create something a little more traditional and pretty using this collection.

I've chosen the 49 and Market Rusty Autumn collection Blooming Autumn, Captivating and Charming for my base papers and to fussy cut the accents.

I've added the three layers of paper and I've use Clear gesso over the top to adde my mixed media layers.

Next I chose this beautiful chipboard piece by Dusty Attic - Birds on a Branch #3 and coated with some DecoArt Sand texture paste.

Next I coated the chipboard with Prima/Finnabair Art Extravagance Rust effect paste - Mint green. Then I used the same as above in Blue and then again with Brass.
This created a really nice layered rust effect.  I then stamped with white paint over the top to tone them down at bit with a script stamp. I finished this off with some watered down Lindy's Flat Fabio - Carribean Blue to highlight the birds and tie in the blue on my husbands shirt.

Before piecing the layout together and sticking it down, I have sponged through some Distress Oxide - Bundled Sage through a script stencil and lightly stamped a script stamp with Distress Oxide - Vintage Photo.

I've layered all my pieces together with the 49 and Market papers plus a few 7 Dots Studio Dreamscapes die cuts. Added to this was a little bit of left over packaging paper I had in my stash. Next I accented with some Prima Marketing Finnabair Glass Beads and some Faber Castell Glitter paste.

I then added a Kaisercraft Die cut and a Tim Holtz Quote Sticker. And finished off by lightly splattering some of the Lindy's Flat Fabio in Caribbean Blue watered down and then as is. I added the barcode strip from the paper as a quote at the very bottom because I just loved it.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look. All the products I have used from Art and Soul Studio shop have been linked. I can't wait to use some of these products again.

Till next time,

Allara xx

Soul Sisters Mood Board by Tanyalee Kahler

Who's ready for some mood board inspiration?
Well I have been working with the latest Soul Sisters mood board and I have an art journal spread to share with you.

This colour palette was not one I am used to using so I found this mood board challenging, however the photos and texture prompt were right up my alley.

I knew I was going to use collage papers, texture paste as well as micro beads and art stones.
Some of the supplies I used are in the below image.

I started the spread with magazine clippings as the background. And then went over the top with texture paste (white sand) from the Art Extravagance range. 
And then I added some soft matte gel, art stones and micro beads to create the beach feel.
Next, I added a range of paint colours to suite the colour palette and beach theme.

My final step was to add the quote using a Posca Paint Pen and some Liquitex Acrylic Ink splatters.

The collage papers have practically disappeared behind the paint and texture paste, but as I work intuitively and each layer leads to something completely new, this often happens.

Have you been inspired by this months mood board? If so, share your work in the Soul Sisters Facebook group and you could go in the running to win a voucher to the Art and Soul Studio shop.
