'Bohemian' Art Journal Page by Elisa Ablett

Hi everyone,

Just sharing my latest Art Journal page for Ink Art Designs.

This is another page that I have completed in my mini Art Journal book that I posted about on the 24th August, inspired by the talented Tina Walker.

I haven't added a quote to this art journal page, it just felt 'enough' so I stopped!

Here is another look at the outside of the mini art journal books I made with the fabric covers.

and below is a close up of all the glorious texture from the recycled baby wipe, sari silk offcuts and vellum rose stickers that are in the background.

Let's take a look at the stamp I used from Ink Art Designs.....

Other items include:

Sari Silk, Vellum Stickers, Distress Oxide Inkpads, recycled baby wipe, Prima Confection Watercolours, Sigma Black Marker 0.7mm

After stamping her face on a separate piece of cardstock, I glued small strips and pieces of Sari Silk around her face and fashioned her hair, I added fine lines for her shoulders using a maker and then glued her baby wipe shirt on. I added her head piece 'crown of flowers' as it picked up the colours in her shirt and flowers and made her a true bohemian lady. Add small amounts of watercolour to the face, eyes and lips and shading under her chin etc.

Before I glued the Sari Silk down onto my page, I added my collage stickers and then added a thin wash of colour around and over the top to dull them down a bit. 

A scribbled border using a marker adds the last touches.

  1. Hi Elisa. The texture of her hair is so captivating! The texture is amazing.
    The journaling around her head finishes the bohemian look off beautifully. Thank you so much for your inspiration.
