Funny Art Journal Page for Country View Challenges


The challenge is hosted by my very talented team mate Corrie this month and she wants to see us use "Blues and Greens"!

I made a art journal page, using a girl from the die cut block and the funny sentiment from the Whimsy quote & letter stickers block from the signature collection art by marlene. I wanted to make a little funny page - and the weird girl and this funny sentiment were perfect for that!


I really love, how the page turned out!

And this is what I did:
 first I put a layer of Gesso on top of a piece of watercolor paper. Then I grabbed acrylic paints from Amsterdam Standard Series in Sky Blue Light and Reflex Green. You can find a huge amount of them in the shop. They come in the 120ml version or in the very handy 20ml size.
First I spreat the blue color with my fingers over the surface, took a Tim Holtz stencil THS092 and a dump baby wipe and took off some of the paint again. Then, when dry I did the same with the green paint.
 When everything was dry, I brayered some acrylic paint in Titanium White randomly over the page to tone the colors down a bit. Then, when the paint was still wet, I took off some of it again with the same stencil.

 Next it was time for more green I thought. This time I used  Phthalo Green and dabbed it with a make up sponge through the stencil #11 from AAL & Create.

 Well, now I wanted more blue and I used one of my favourite stencils at the moment, the Jofy Stencil PM014 from PaperArtsy. I took DecoArt Americana acrylic paint in Ultramarine Blue this time and sponged it through the stencil.

 Time for some stamping. I used the stamp STAMPIN250 out of the Industrial 2.0 line from StudioLight with Archival Ink watering can.....

 .....and from PaperArtsy Minis MN72 with Archival Ink Jet Black.

 I adhered the beach beauty and the sentiment sticker, which I first glazed with Phthalo Green, mixed with Matte Medium......

 shaded the leaves the lady and the sentiment with a black stabilo all pencil, activated with water, added some white splatters and framed the page with distress ink blueprint sketch and doodled around it with a black posca pen.

 Well, I hope you like my fun page like I do!
Here are some close ups:

Art Journal Page in my "Faces" Art Journal

Hello and welcome to my blog today!
This is my second post for the June Challenge over at Country View Challenges. This month´s theme is "It´s a bugs life". I have chosen to use a butterfly again.


This is the reference photo, I found on Pinterest
Epic Firetruck's Black & White ~
Pinterest - Epic Firetruck's Black & White ~

This is what I did:
I´m sorry, I only made this only one photo while creating.

I started by glueing down some pieces of old book pages and a lot of washi tape stripes from Tim Holtz. The washi tape fits perfect for the challenge theme - there are many butterflies and moths on it! After that I painted the pages with watered down white Gesso and added white crackle paint on random parts.
After everything was dry, I started to sketch the face with a HB pencil. I darkened some parts with brown ink and brown stabilo all and brown charcoal and black stabilo all and black charcoal and brown and black Inktense pencils....., lightend other parts with white charcoal pencil, white Inktense pencil and white stabilo all, ......... and set highlight with a white posca pen - well I fiddled around for days. It was really a challenge and I was struggling with some parts of the face, e. g. the mouth and the nose.
But I am pretty satisfied with the result 😊.

Next I stamped some background stamps from LaBlanche with black ink, very subtile only.
Now I wanted to add some color - not too much, only a hint of color, very gently. I used acrylic paint in a yummy violet, getting a gorgeous magenta when watered down and a green metalic paint from finnabair.

The lovely butterfly is from Rubber Dance, he is stamped with black ink and colored with the same colors I used for the background. Here I used a bit more color.
The words are from the same stamp set. I also stamped them with black ink and cut them out.

I was missing a little something, so I put modeling paste through a stencil from AAl & Create and when the paste was dry, I painted it with brown acrylic paint.

I glued all down, framed the words and shaded the butterfly. Then I made some splatters with black, white, green and violet paint and colored the edges of the page with brown stabilo all to frame the pages. The last thing I did, I made some clear drops with a pearl pen - and that´s it!


Now I hope you like my journal pages as much as I do!

Oh, and don´t forget to join in with our challenge! There is enough time left!

Thank you so much for your visit today!

Butterfly birthday card for Country View Challenges

Hello lovelies, welcome to June!
This time the theme at Country View Challenge is "It´s a bugs life!", chosen by my talented teamy Jane.
I made a card with this beautiful butterfly.


I created a wrinkle free background with 3 colors of Distress Oxides (peeled paint, picked raspberry, mermaid lagoon) and dried it with a heat tool.


after that I stamped  the flowers from the stamp set "Mindscapes" from Inkadinkado with the same DO randomly to the background.


Now I stamped the beautiful butterfly from the same stamp set with VersaFine Clair nocturne and heat embossed it with black embossing powder. Then I colored it again with the same DO inks. I set highlights with a white posca pen.
Then I stamped the birthday wishes , colored the paper and cut the words.

For more interest and a great contrast I diecut the Tim Holtz wild flowers out of black cardstock, I also diecut the "grass" with a icecles die from Joy!Crafts and glued everything to the background and glued it to the card.

That´s it for today! Don´t miss to visit the CVC blog to see the gorgeous makes of my lovely teamies.
We hope to see your projects in our challenge!
