Tag Journal - With Scrapping Clearly!

Hi Lovelies!!

Today I have an tag journal to share with you made using the Art-By-Marlene tag kit and other Art-by-Marlene products available in the Scrapping Clearly Store


When it comes to art journalling I just love Art-by-Marlene products. They are so fun and quirky and are amazing quality and unique. 

Kylie sent the Art-By-Marlene tag kit as part of my recent DT kit - it is amazing!!


Here is a photo of what is inside the box. You get plenty of tags (enough for 2 or 3 journals), plain washi of 2 different widths (the wide one for the outside spine, the narrow one for joining tags together on the inside), a metal die, and a decorative elastic and embellishment. Even if you are not into tags you will want this kit for the die!!

For my journal I've used 6 tags. I first join each of the tags together on the inside with the narrow washi.


Next I add the wide washi along the outer spine, then I've added a strip of Art-By-Marlene collage paper 5 cut with the die from inside the kit. This die creates a pattern like builders tape (some call it punchinella) and it is perfect for tearing into smaller pieces and adding you your projects.  


Using the new Art-By-Marlene Borders cutting die I have diecut more of the paper from the Art-By-Marlene collage paper 5.

 
Next I stamped lots of fishes from the Dina Wakley Media Scribbly fishes stamp set. I thought I would use these on each of my tag pages. 
 

Now that I'm ready with all my goodies to use on my pages I started creating. I added some colour to the cover using Art-By-Marlene watercolour pan paints - Bold and Bright. I also used these paints and some colour pencils to colour one of the fish images.
 

Next I added torn strips of Art-By-Marlene washi and some pops of bright neon paint to the background.
 

Lastly I added some Art-By-Marlene stickers, doodling with a Fude ball pen and ribbons. Here is my finished cover.
 

For the inside of my tag journal I decided to create each page opening in a predominantly single colour (monochromatic), taken from the colours along the spine. So the first pages were lime-green in colour. I used the Art-By-Marlene watercolour pan paints - Bold and Bright and let the paint drip up and down the page.
 

Next  I added stencilling using an Art-By-Marlene stencil and coordinating colour ink.
 

Then I added stamping using the new Art-By-Marlene Exclusive textures stamp set.
 

Lastly I added painted scribbly fish stamped images, Art-By-Marlene stickers, doodling with a Fude ball pen and ribbons.
 

Here is my finished pages.
 

Next time I will show more pages in my Art-By-Marlene tag journal.

Mothers Day - With Bee Arty!

Hi Lovelies!

Today I have a scrapbook page to share with you made using lots of amazing products from Bee Arty!


I'm also joining in with the March creative challenge. We would love for you to join us with this challenge and be in the running to win a $30 online store voucher. 

I wanted to use some papers from the Follow your dreams collection so I started by selecting all the pink and yellow Bee Arty Colour Blast products I had and creating a colour swatch.


 From this swatch I decided to use the Colour Artist inks in Slipper and Citrus, the Midnight Colour Shimmer Dust , and Fire Engine Colour Paste.

 I start my backgrounds by Painting with plastic/watercolouring with the Colour Artist inks in Slipper and Citrus - make sure you dry between each colour. Then I added splatters of each ink colour and splatters of the Midnight Colour Shimmer Dust mixed with water.
 

Let this dry completely than add Fire Engine Colour Paste through the Devotion stencil in places across the page.


Here is my finished page. I chose a photo of my girls from last Mothers Day - with a fun snapchat filter.


 I've matted my photo on a white paper doilie and elements cut from the Shine paper from the Follow Your Dreams collection. At the bottom of my photo I've added a white paper die cut created using the Sweet Floral Metal Die.


 At the top right corner of my photo I've added an embellishment cluster using sequins, flowers, a metal embellishment and another white paper die cut created using the Sweet Floral Metal Die.


 At the top left of the page I've added an embellishment cluster using more sequins, flowers, paper strips cut from the Shine paper, another white paper die cut created using the Sweet Floral Metal Die, and a word chipboard embellishment that has been painted using Slipper Colour Artist ink.

 
 Along the bottom of the page I've added an embellishment cluster using more sequins, flowers, paper strips cut from the Shine paper, a metal embellishment and another word chipboard embellishment that has been painted using Slipper Colour Artist ink.

Home - With Scrapping Clearly!

Hi Lovelies!!

Today I have an art journal page to share with you made using various products available in the Scrapping Clearly Store



I've used my Small Dylusions journal and created a background using Prima Watercolor Confections.

Next I added torn strips of washi from my stash, then I added some background stamping, and I drew around the edge of the page with a Fude Ball pen.


 As a feature I added some punched leaves and a butterfly die cut. I coloured some white muslin also using the Prima Watercolor Confections.
Lastly I added some stickers from the Art-by-Marlene sticker book.
