Mixed Media Shine Art Journal Page with Leah Tees

I have an art journal page to share with you today for OOAK Artisan Showcase in one of my newly made art journals. I created the art journal with bristol paper cut to 4 x 6 and bound it with my Bind-It-All and some heavy weight board for the covers.

I started by putting down these star die cuts that I had. There were many different sizes and colors. I knew I was going to cover them over, so my main focus was placement. I glued them with Uhu glue stick.

Wicked Witch Mixed Media Project with Roberta Laliberte

Hello everyone, Roberta here and with Halloween just around the corner I just had to create a wonderfully witchy creation. You could easily make this to hang on a wall or a door but I made my witch to perch on the edge of a table. This wonderfully wicked witch is made out of scrap cardboard. Here’s how:

Sticks and Stones...a Wall Hanging with Jean Stambaugh Peter

Sticks and Stones ...I did not know for sure what this was going to be when I started it, but I knew the title would be Sticks and Stones! When starting this I noticed there were a lot of lines and circles; I think that is where the name came from. I am not good at naming my pieces so its a big thing coming up with a name so early!!

Jean Peter Sticks and Stones Wall Hanging OOAK Artisans

I took a lightweight canvas napkin (on clearance for $1.50 for a set of 4!!!) and painted it!! Using metallic paints and the 5x5 Gelli Plate I did a series of prints lined up to fill the square. Then I over-stamped with the circle plate. Grabbed me some acrylic paint, stencil, markers and brushes, and doodled and stenciled accents!! Then I thought of what it could be .. book cover? Journal? Wall hanging? Bag? Pillow? The Pillow was eliminated after sewing paper to it.
