Page 2 Girls DT Projects - April - Sam Wharton

Happy April Everyone !

This month I got to play with one of the fab new collections from Kaisercraft called " in the attic " . This lovely collection has a real vintage feel with a twist of retro. I love the lime green and red shades that they have teamed with the vintage tones of sepias and chocolates.

This month I incorporated the collection into an art journal. Art journalling is extremely popular right now, it allows you to embrace the inner child that is inside Of us all. Everyone can create an art journal it doesn't matter if you can't draw or paint as there are stamps and collage sheets available to put images on your pages. What I love best about art journalling is there are no mistakes and the way you get lost in the process of creating the pages . Art journal pages are unique to the creator and no two pages are ever the same. So here's how this journal was created.....

I stated with one of the fantastic Dylusions art journal. I love these journals as they have a plain cover for you to create your own unique beginning to your journal . These journal also have lovely thick pages for you to ink and wet to your hearts content , so it is fantastic for watercolour effects and the Dylusions ink sprays.

After crating a background using the Dylusions sprays and various stencils , I then set about using elements of the collection on the pages. I used the 12x12 papers , 12x12 sticker sheet and a packet of collectables to create all of the pages . A black Sharpie, a white gel pen, some other embellishments from your stash and your photos (if you choose) will allow you to build your own journal pages , telling your own unique story.

Here is a look at the pages I created ......
