Beautiful like Me - Art Journal page by Elisa Ablett

Hi everyone,

My turn on the blog again with a dark but shimmery art journal page with one of my favourite sayings. You can really see the shimmer and shine on the black background!! This has to be one of my favourite art journal pages I have made to date, just love how the colours turned out.

Colour Blast products used include Deep Water, Envy,Apple of my Eye, Royalty, Bling and Just Blue Colour Blast Pastes and Sprays. Click on this link for more information.


Now onto the tutorial - 

Roughly spread a liberal amount of heavy body black acrylic paint with a palette knife or spatula over your page. While it is wet, place black thread over your page, avoiding the area on the right where your flower stencil has to be used.



Step 2 - Grab a palette knife and your favourite stencil and starting in the middle spread your different coloured pastes from the inside out...



Make sure you clean your palette knife in between colours - baby wipes are perfect for this job!



Step 3 - Spread your coloured Pastes around the outside part of the stencil to add a bit of colour in the left hand side of the journal page, just in several patches leaving the right hand side to be the side with the most colour.



Step 4 - Grab another stencil, I used a script letter stencil, hold it a couple of inches from your page and spray quite closely to the stencil as pictured with co-ordinating Colour Blast Sprays.



Step 5 - Once you page has dried, grab some glue.... bend and shape your peacock feathers  around the stenciled flower and glue them down, fanning out the strands of the feather as you go.


Final Step - Grab a few Colour Blast Shimmer Sprays, I used Bling, Deep Water, Just Blue, Envy and Royalty and spray over the top of the page and add splatters and drips using a fan brush. Also add your quote or saying, i used the computer to print up my saying and i sprayed some colour sprays over the top to make them blend in to the background a little more.


And a close up for you ...



I hope you can see the versatility of the Pastes and Sprays on a black background and in your Art journalling especially. The colours and the shine is AMAZING!! 

Thanks for stopping by the blog today....make sure you leave some love.
