Dream Art Journal Page

Happy Thursday!

 For today's project I get to share with you a project that uses some of the new dies, stencils and stamps from Charlene & Ilse's new Art Journal Specials Collection from Elizabeth Craft Designs. So for today's project, I created a Dream Art Journal Page. You'll want to read below as I have a full tutorial on how to recreate my Dream Art Journal Page at home.


Start by die cutting the ticket page from the Planner Essentials - 11 die out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a brayer, start by brayering on PaperArtsy - Fresco Chalk Acrylic paint - Jade on the page. Continue to layer the PaperArtsy - Fresco Chalk Acrylic paint - Glacier Ice, Blue Lagoon and Coral on the page using a brayer. 


Place the X & 's portion of the stencil from Make Your Mark stencil, on the page as desired. Using a palette knife, put Texture Paste Opaque Matte through the stencil. Move the stencil around and place texture paste through the stencil. You'll want to have five stenciled areas on the page. 

Once the texture paste has dried, choose one of the leaves from the Spring Fling Stamp Set. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the leaf and stamp onto the page as desired. Reapply ink to the stamp and stamp seven more times as desired. Reapply ink to the stamp as needed. Distress the edges of the page. Ink the edges of the page using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


Choose one of the reinforcements from the Reinforcement Variety Pack. Die cut the reinforcements out of black cardstock. You'll need a total of four.


Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to one of the girls from the Floral Girls Stamp Set and stamp onto a piece of watercolour cardstock. Use a waterbrush and Scribble Sticks 1&2 to colour the girl in. Once the girl has dried, fussy cut her out. Ink the edges of the girl using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


Using the Morning Letters, spell out the word dream and apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the word. Stamp the word onto a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Fussy cut the word out. Ink the edges of the word using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


Die cut the floral leaf branch from the Blooming Branches die out of book page.


From the Blooming Branches die, die cut the heart branch once out of black cardstock and a second time out of kraft cardstock.


From the Budding Florals die, die cut the bulb out of black cardstock.


Die cut one 1 1/2" Diagonal Stitched Fishtail out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Die cut one 1" Diagonal Stitched Fishtail out of book page. From the top of the white fishtail, tear off enough so that the fishtail ends up being 4" long. From the top of the book page fishtail, tear off enough so that the fishtail ends up being 3 3/4" long. Distress the edges of the fishtails. Ink the edges of the fishtails using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


Die cut the Bubbles die out of black cardstock. Cut the bubbles down to fit the page as desired.


Die cut a 2 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece of burlap. Cut a piece of cheesecloth that's big enough to look good bunched up.


Adhere the reinforcement circles over top of each circle on the page. Adhere the burlap piece 1" from the top and all the way to the right hand side of the page. Adhere the bubble piece 3/8" from the top of the page and all the way to the right hand side of the page. 


Foam square the white fishtail 1 1/4" from the top and 1/4" from the right of the page. Adhere the book page fishtail 1 1/8" from the top and 1 3/8" from the left of the page. Adhere the bunched cheese cloth overtop of the fishtails as desired.


Adhere the black bulb to the middle of the cheese cloth. Adhere the two heart leaves and floral leaf branch as desired over top of the black bulb.


Use foam squares to adhere the girl partially overtop of the heart leaves and floral leaf bunch. Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere the dream sentiment to the bottom left hand side of the girl as desired.


To finish the page, use a paint brush to splatter Brushed Pewter Distress Spray Stain over the page as desired. 


Here are a few closeup photos of the finished art journal page.




Here is the finished Dream Art Journal Page.
