Quirky Pages by Amanda Southern


Hi Everyone
For this weeks post I am back playing in my little That's Crafty! grey/white board art journal (3" x 5").  I am really enjoying making these smaller pages.

Here's What I Did:

As with the previous pages I have completed in this little art journal each page started with it having been covered with a gelli print scrap from my stash and then I smeared white gesso over with a spatula to add some texture to the pages. Onto the gesso covered page I have started my layers of colour by using water colour paints, a selection of colours from the Art by Marlene Bold & Bright set.

Over the watercolour I stencilled one of That's Crafty! masks, Mandala 1, using Dina Wakley Sky paint.

I then added more stencilling over the top in places using several That's Crafty! Dinky stencils and That's Crafty! Clouds & Hearts stencil, all added using more Dina Wakley paints. I have doodled around some of this stencilling using a black fineliner pen. There are some torn heart paper pieces of Dina Wakley collage sheets added with matt medium and I have also added some scribbly writing using one of Dina's scribble sticks.

Onto some stamping card I stamped the 2 quirky figures from Dina Wakley's 'Quirky People' stamp set and cut them out. Other than painting in the red cheeks I left them uncoloured and glued them onto each of the pages. To the bottom of both images I added a strip of Dina Wakley washi tape and added some more freehand scribbling to them. I cut a heart out of the washi tape and added one to each image. I also punched some small circles from a book page to add under each image. The addition of a Tim Holtz Snarky sticker outlined with fineliner pen  finishes off each page.

  2. You've crammed amazing layering and detail on your pages Amanda. The brightcolours are lovely and the backgrounds fit the images so well.
