Art Journal Your Dreams by Alison Hall


We'd like to say a very big thank you to Alison for all her hard work and fantastic projects that she has done for us over the last 3 years.

It's been a pleasure having Alison on the team and we'd like to wish her all the very best for the future.

Hello Crafters! Today I'm sharing my final project for That's Crafty. It's been a wonderful three years, and I've really enjoyed working with Laura and her lovely team. Here's an art journal page I made for the recent Hochanda shows, with words that I feel are quite appropriate for the occasion.

Here's what I used...

That's Crafty! Stamp Sets - Lynne's Affirmations Set 2, Motivational Words Set 1


1. The background of my page is created with torn pieces of Gelli Plate printed tissue I made using various Dinky Stencils and Dylusions paint, which was then collaged onto the page with matte medium.

2. Using the 'Tina' 8x8 ins stencil, I stencilled parts of her hair around the edges of my page with black Dylusions paint. I also stencilled the word 'JOURNAL' with black paint.

3. Next, I stamped the word 'Art' from Motivational Words Set 1, and the quote from Lynne's Affirmations Set 2, using black Archival ink.

4. To finish, I added some doodled dots on the letters and Tina's hair, and a border on my page, with black and white journaling pens.

I hope I've inspired you to create some art today,

Alison x
