Art Journal Page by Melina Dahl



It´s Melina here today with an art journal page.

I had so many scrap pieces of monoprinted paper that I could not throw away, so I decided to use them for a ”scrap page”.

I started by glueing down bits and pieces of scrap paper on my page using That's Crafty! Multi Purpose Glue. I then used my spatula to add That's Crafty! White Gesso here and there on the page.

I then used grey and black watercolour to outline some of the lines and squares for some contrast.

I stamped the crackles with one of the stamps from That's Crafty! Textures Stamp Set 2.
I painted one of the That's Crafty! greyboard Large Funky Flowers with That's Crafty! Black Gesso.

Once dry I doodled the patterns using a white Posca pen.

I stamped the quote from That's Crafty! Inspirational Quotes Stamp Set 2, cut them out and glued down on my page. Finally I outlined the quote with black watercolour, glued down the funky flower and my page was finished.

I used:

Hope you got inspired to use your scraps :)

Thank you for stopping by today!
