I’m sure by now, you have seen the gorgeous new range of papers by the incredible artist Lisa Oxley. I’ll confess, I’m a huge, huge fan of Lisa and her gorgeous creations! I’ve been lucky enough to do several of her classes over the years. She has a relaxed vibrancy in both work and personality, and I like to consider her a friend, so I was super excited when I heard about her new range.
I’ve used a mix of both packs on my projects. I began the first art journal page by using paint and stencils in the background. I added torn up strips of the ‘easy tear paper’ and the ’tissue paper’. Next I added the cut out rainbow and woman, then finally the punched butterfly and title. My final step was edging with a black ‘All pencil’, plus a bit of journaling along the woman.
I again used a combination of both packs to create the second page and included an Altered Ancestor from the Lorraine Haight Moraine Corestack. The background was created with a mix of paint and gloss sprays – it had started as a bit of a ‘mop up’ page. I then covered the whole background with matte medium, before layering the tissue paper down. I added my cut-out figures, heart and flower. My final addition was a title from the ‘Faces & Figures pack, which I had sprayed pink.
The packs I used are:
