Art Journal Page by Elisa Ablett


Hi everyone,

My turn today to share a project for Ink Art Designs as part of the design team.

I have been itching to create something with the new Dina Wakely stamp set - Say Yes 2 for a while now and I decided to pair it with another stamp set from Rubber Dance called - Loose Florals 2 to create this art journal page.

I stamped the face stamp onto old book paper and coloured using watercolour pencils, neocolour II crayons and oil pastels. 

For the background I used tissue paper, inks, the background stamps from the Dina Wakely set and Life of Colour Paint Pens. 

I decided I wanted to add a lovely bunch of flowers for hair and went with Colour Artist inks and Dina Wakely paint on cardstock then stamped the Loose Florals 2 stamp set over the top once dry. Then all you have to do is a bit of fussy cutting and glue to your page. 

I added my quote which is a Tim Holtz Small Talk Quote from the sticker book and few pieces of scrap paper and washi tape to finish.

I also love adding highlights using a fine white paint marker.

The last thing I like to add, especially to a portrait or face stamp is shadows using a black watercolour pencil - Stabilo All purpose.

Here are some more photos:-
