I was sent a big box of crafting supplies from Martha Stewart! It is a crafter's dream come true! I had so much fun creating fun projects that I have deemed this week: Martha Stewart Craft Week!
Craft #3: Art Journal Pages
I followed the tutorial on Lil Blue Boo to turn a book into an art journal.
Ashley also has a Time lapse video to show how she creates pages in her art journal here.
Here are the supplies that I used for this page:
Martha Stewart Craft paint
Martha Stewart glitter paint
Martha Stewart stencil tape
Martha Stewart Butterfly silkscreens
Elmer's paint pens
To start out I taped off a lattice pattern with the stencil tape.
Then, I used craft paint and covered the page.
I then peeled off the stencil tape while the paint was still wet. I was ok with the it being messy and having the page rip a little bit.
To use the silkscreens I used the craft paint and the sponge dabbers.
I placed the silkscreen where I wanted it on my page. They are adhesive so the stay in place.
Then, dab up and down over the silkscreen.
Peel off and you are set.
I used the Paint pens to add the text and also the paths behind the butterflies.
I also added glitter paint around the edges of the page.
Here is a second page that I did:
I love working on the the art journal, because I love to paint but I don't want to do a big huge project all the time. These book pages are the prefect size to get our my creativity in one afternoon nap session.
