Gisteren was Jeanette hier om weer lekker een dagje te hobbyen en toen heb ik haar voorgedaan hoe ik SMILE had gemaakt, dus Jeanette in het groot aan de gang en ik in het klein, vind het altijd leuk om een art journal pagina te maken die toont waar ik dat moment creatief mee bezig ben. Kijk ook eens hier naar het resultaat van Jeanette.

Yesterday Jeanette came over to spend the day doing some creative stuff, I showed her how I made SMILE, so while Jeanette worked on a larger scale I decided to make an art journal page, this art journal reflects all the things  what keep me busy creatively. Look here for the result from Jeanette.

Front and back cover. This is a scalloped book from Genuinely Jane Studios. Instead of using the covers and pages, I removed the 2 pages and made that into another booklet.


Front cover: I painted the outside of the front cover with white acryllic paint and made black squares with a permanent marker. Dis the same with the back cover. I took some paper and stamped, masked and coloured the images on it. Coloured in with distress inks. Glued it on the cover with miracle tape. All images are from plate 949.


Did the same with the back cover.


Stamped the Harlequin background and the fuilmstrip on with M’xed Media Inx. Stamped the line of Cevrons with Versafine. Used some washi tape. Then I hammered some nails in to hang the pages. Did this on both sides of the front cover as well as on the back cover.


Cut some pages and made holes to hang it on the nails. Found out that when i closed the booklet and opened it again the pages did fall out. So I cut out some triangles with the Quickutz and made a cut with a scissor on one side of the triangle, this way I can remove the triangles when I want to decorate a page. Stamped the circles (from plate 949) on with Stazon Black.


Decorated the first page.


Detail photo: the triangles enhances the page, doesn’t that look awesome.


The booklet photographed in another angle.


Enhanced the rings (why WordPress turns this photo I don’t know )

Was afgelopen zaterdag even naar The Stamping Cottage in Schaijk gereden. Oh wat is dat toch altijd een feest, kom er helemaal tot rust. En raak er altijd erg geïnspireerd zelf als mijn muze op vakantie is :o) Angela was bezig met een workshop en heb even meegedaan daarover later meer. En hoewel ik eigenlijk van plan was om maar even te blijven was het 4 uur voor ik er erg in had. Dus zei: ik zal wel even helpen schoonmaken van de craftsheets, daar zat nog flink wat verf op van de workshop, maar al een beetje ingedroogd dus niet meer terug in de flesjes te doen, dat vind ik altijd zo zonde. Dus Angela gaf me wat papier en heb die op de craftsheet gelegd, flink vegen, omdraaien en dan spuiten met water, vel optillen en gewoon diverse richtingen uit laten lopen. Dit werd zo’n mooie achtergrond (hij is 50 x 50 cm), dat ik het jammer vond om hem in kleinere stukken te knippen om er kaarten van te maken, mede geïnspireerd door schilderijen in het Groninger museum van Andy Warhol. Dus een foto van Max bewerkt in Paint Shop Pro, en die op de manier van Elise van Grow Creative overgebracht op de gekleurde achtergrond. Dit ingeschilderd met zwart gesso.

Last saterday I went to The Stamping Cottage, its a dutch stamping store in Schaijk. Always a treat to be there, it relaxes me so much just being there even when my muze in on vacation I get inspired. Angela was giving a workshop (will show you more later). And even though I planned to stay just for an hour, before I knew it  it was closing time, so I offered to help clean up the craft sheets because they where full of paint, Always such a shame to throw away good stuff, so Angela gave me some paper and I layed it down into the paint on the craftsheet, turned the paper, sprayed with water and held my paper vertically to let the water/paint run. I had the intention to cut up the large piece of paper (50 x 50 cm) to cut into the size of cards, but I liked this one so much I decided to use the way Elise from Grow Creative showed in the tutorial and also inspired by the paintings of Andy Warhol in the Groninger Museum. Used black gesso to paint the image.
