Our Design Team have created a few extra projects for you this week. Interestingly, two ladies have used the same stacks to create two remarkably different art journal pages!
First up we have Paula Perry.
Paula says, “Hello all, have you seen the Limited Edition stacks from ArtStacks? They certainly are pretty!
I have to confess, I opened both packs at the same time, so have ended up using a little bit from each for my art journal page. I was inspired by the idea of a Dressmaker so I pulled out my old Tim Holtz dressmaker die and it kind of evolved from there. The end result was nothing like what I had in my head, but do they ever turn out as you plan? 😉
I started with my 6×6 journal, just for something different, and I added acrylic colour to the background. I then added some of the darker tissue pattern paper and some masking over the top.
I glued on some of the tissue paper flower designs from the Anemones & Friends stack, roughly colouring them in with Scribble Sticks and adding some random stamping.
I used the gorgeous floral printed book paper from The Homemaker stack and the Tim Holtz die to create my focal figure and my page was basically done.
Here’s the finished page with a title from the Inspirational Words tissue paper stack.”
And secondly we have Heather with a more vintage-style page using the same stacks as Paula!
Heather says, “I made this for my DT work at Kraft Plus Challenges. I love the retro feel of these designs and the variety of paper types. I adore the pianola roll and dressmaking tissue papers!
A big shout out to Leanne Jago – I totally stole her idea of using the pianola roll and tissue paper pattern pieces in a cluster like this with the flowers tucked in between. You can find Leanne’s post here. I added a paper ruffle from The Dressmaker stack on top. The gorgeous retro lady is also from The Dressmaker stack and the flowers are all from the Anemones & Friends stack. The pianola roll paper and the kraft-coloured dressmaking tissue are from The Homemaker stack.”
Both ladies used the following stacks:
Thanks for the inspiraton Paula and Heather!
