Art Journal page by Elisa Ablett for Ink Art Designs

Hi everyone, 

Elisa here from the design team for Ink Art Designs with my latest project, a gel printed art journal page!

So while on a crafting retreat/camp in the mountains with a few friends I pulled out the old A4 gel plate with the intention of creating some unique collage paper and ended up using old music paper and book paper as well. I just loved this colourful print and thought it would be a great background for an art journal page. 

I have been meaning to use Katzelkraft - Lamas stamps for a while now and loved this little one prancing, perfect pairing with a snarky sentiment from the Tim Holtz Snarky Small Talk Sticker book.

I find when you have a bright and multilayered background, try to keep the rest really simple, make the main stamped image your focal point and try to draw the eye to it. I hand coloured my prancing lama with watercolours and colour pencils, keeping him fairly clean and simple. I added a large white circle along with a lightly stamped mandala to act as my focal point.

Here is a close up :-)
