Art journal page - Live, Love, Laugh

Hi, all!
Sleepless night and another journal pages :) This time no sprays, I used only acrylics paints. For the background I used Dyan's block technique and various stencils from Tim Holtz and Dyan Reaveley. On the borders I used one of the Dylusions border stamps and added some white accents. Then I cut some circles and used them as a mask to paint the rest of the pages in black. I added some white accents using one of my stencils and white acrylics paint. I used two alphabet stamp sets to stamp the words - Tim's Worn alphabet stamp set and the Dylusions  alphabet stamp set. Since the background was black, I stamped the words with white permanent ink. The shapes (Tim Holtz dies) are cut from the black cardstock and I added some doodling around the circles.

  2. Hello Branka,
    Your Black Bg is causing so much drama, but your brights are counterbalancing the effect on the eye to relate a fabulous and unique design on these pages.

  3. Hi there,
    I'm hopping over here from the Mixed Media Place Challenge, having participated in it myself, I wanted to see what everyone else did.I really like the texture you achieved and the color choices too, vivid but not overpowering. Of course, I totally dig the inclusion of the butterfly. The world can't have enough of those! This just makes you want to dance!

    May your muse shine brightly!

  16. Sleepless nights are no fun, but when you get a journal page this cool and funky out of it, maybe it's worth it!
