Life was unreal - Art Journal Page by Elisa Ablett

Hi everyone, 

My turn to share an inspirational project for Ink Art Designs as part of the design team there. 

I created an art journal page, which could also be a card front (with a different sentiment) using a gorgeous stamp set from Rubber Dance called flowers-gone-wild

The background was a gel print that I had created and put aside to use at a later date and I just love the mellow teal and lemon painted background along with the black ink.

I stenciled using a Tim Holtz stencil as well as black ink around the edges of my project to create a frame for the flower. I also used a handmade collage paper using white tissue paper and stamped using a lacey background stamp. You could use Rubber Dance stamp set - lace-borders to create your own collage paper! 

Add a touch of old sheet music paper and some random stitching in black cotton for texture and warmth. I tend to call this stitching .... Elisa's dodgy sewing...ahem ok a better way to describe it might be - distressed sewing perhaps ?

Add some white highlights to your stamped image with a white gel pen or paint pen to finish off your project. I added a little bit of orange splooshes to the bottom of the project and to the middle of my stamped flower.


Here are some of the products used from the store....
