Finger painting and Scribbles by Amanda Southern


Hi Everyone
I have released the inner child within me for this weeks arty make as I have have had fun with finger painting, scribbling and doodling for my pair of journal pages. 

Here's What I Did:

It was time to christen my Dina Wakley 6" x 6" art journal, I don't know about you but I always feel a bit nervous making the first pages in a new art journal. 

I began by choosing 2 collage paper faces from Dina Wakleys Collage paper Faces collection and roughly tore around the printed images, tearing then leaves a smoother edge to them when they have been glued onto your paper. I added them to the pages with matte medium. 

Once the matte medium was dry I selected some colours of Dina Wakley acrylic paints putting a dab of each onto my craft mat and then applied the colours using my fingers, drying each colour before applying another colour on top until I was happy with the look. 

Taking some Dina Wakley Scribble Sticks I added some doodling and edged each page with scribbles to frame each one. Tim Holtz Big Talk Snarky Stickers are added to each page and each word edged with a Scribble Stick.

Crafty time is very limited for me at the moment so this was a fun quick way to allow myself a little arty fun.

Here's What I Used:
Dina Wakley 6" x 6" Journal - 36 pages Heavy Cotton pages
Dina Wakley Acrylic Paints - Assorted colours
Dina Wakley Scribble Sticks - Assorted colours

Have a fabulous week and I will see you all next Tuesday.
