Emotions Journal Layout

EmotionsArtJournalJennDuBellwww.ritabarakat.com

Hello, Everyone! Jenn here! Today I want to share my Emotions art journal layout with you.

Have you ever wanted to draw faces in your journal or other mixed media? If you have but you think your drawing skills won’t allow it you need to try these stencils! Rita Barakat designed them for this exact purpose.

These stencils are sold in a set In Rita’s Etsy Store here.

For this layout, I used the Sweet Sisters Flower stencil.

I also used The following stamps by Rita Barakat


Fairy Garden Background Stamp
Art Foamies Heart Wing

To create journal layouts like this one, start by creating a background. Use a combination of inks, sprays, and acrylics with stamps and stencils. Random ink sprays and splatters, combined with stamps brought this background to life. Once you have a background use the face stencils wherever you want them on your page. Add color to eyes and lips using pens or colored pencils as I did. You can also incorporate embossing powders as I did with mine. I used the Art Foamies Heart Wing stamp and white chalk ink. Stamp on the page and sprinkle with an iridescent pink embossing powder. Heat set the embossing powder with a heat tool.

Here are some more views of my process. Thank you so much for viewing my post! I hope that you are inspired to grab some of these stamps and stencils and get inky and creative with your journal!

 

In this photo, you can see where I started with thinner black lines and then started writing the script around the hair lines.

 

Adding white dots with a gel pen to the hair strands added more interest. Also, add some stamping with the Fairy Garden Background Stamp. This does not have to be perfect! Art is whatever your imagination creates! Add touches of color using bright gel pens or colored pencils. I used a distress marker in a fleshy pink tone and traced around all of the face lines to add dimension.

Thanks Again For viewing My post Today! Until next time, Jenn

Imagine mixed media Journal

Karen Jiles http://stampinakapalace.blogspot.com/

Hi there,

Karen here, sharing a mixed media journal created with Rita’s  Heart Wing Art Foamies stamp. The stamp measures 5 ¾ x 3 ½. The size of the stamp was perfect for this journal. I coordinated this fun stamp with some oxide inks, dyed cheesecloth and dyed ribbon. The journal measures 7 3/4 x 5 ½.

I began this journal by inking some watercolor paper with various oxide inks and water. I used oxide colors: worn lipstick, wilted violet, and fossilized amber. These colors compliment each other well.

After inking the watercolor paper, I resprayed the remaining loose ink with water and inked the Heart Wing stamp with the ink. I heat set the inked watercolor papers and continued adding inks until I was happy with the end result. Then I stamped onto some blank watercolor paper. I created several stampings of the Heart Wing to create several color variations.

I also used the remaining loose ink to coordinate ribbon and cheesecloth to be used on the mixed media journal.

Next, I trimmed the inked watercolor paper down to layering size and tapped some cracked pistachio oxide ink onto the inked watercolor paper. I adhered the inked watercolor paper to a coordinating layer of cardstock. I also cut the Heart Wing stampings out and inked the edges with cracked pistachio oxide ink.

Next, I added dyed honey comb die cuts and cheesecloth to the journal. I then layered 2 Heart Wing stampings together with 3D tape and adhered the Heart Wing layer to the journal.

I applied some wilted violet ink to wooden words and adhered them to the journal. I added dyed ribbon and a crystal charm to finish the journal.

Heart Wing Creations

Hello creative souls, Ramona here, and I am so excited to share a few ideas for your art journaling, snail mail, and gift-giving projects. If you are new to the world of Art Foamies you are in for a treat.  They are versatile stamps that give you lots of options as you create your paper craft and mixed media projects.  I am a believer in using what you buy and really getting your money’s worth out of the little investments you make for your craft stash. With that in mind, I wanted to show you 3 easy ways to utilize the Heart Wing stamp in Rita Barakat’s beautiful Art Foamie line. Once you play with your own foam stamp you will find endless ways to use them.

 started by using different mediums with the Art Foamie Heart Wing stamp.  The brown ink is a heavy duty archival ink, and I wanted it to look layered and textured, so I stamped it on an old recycled dictionary page.  The pink is a very inexpensive ink that I already had in my stash, and I stamped it down on a piece of cardstock.  When using ink pads you may need to adjust your Art Foamie across the ink pad to get a proper inking of the entire surface before you stamp it. The foam stamp is firm enough that you do not need an acrylic block to use it, making it easy to grab and move around on any surface you choose. 
Finally, the lovely grey is acrylic paint, which I thinly spread out on a piece of drip paper and gently stamped my foam stamp in. It distributes the paint in such a gorgeous way and has a lovely textured feel to it.  After using the foamie I stamped it on a wet paper towel a few times to clean any remaining paint and ink off the image.
Here are the ways I decided to use my three little-winged hearts ;
Project One: Gift Tag
With a stabilo pencil (you can use any type of distressing tool for this) I quickly outlined the image and the heart. This loose outline adds a bit of definition and gives the wings a loose feel.  I added a small greeting to the heart- you could stamp your own or add lettering here for a personal message, then I cut the wings out for a die-cut feel and slipped it on to the small wrapped gift.  How simple is that?
Project Two: Snail Mail Envelope
Nothing brightens the day of a fellow art loving soul more than some beautiful mail waiting for them in the mailbox.  This is a simple way to add whimsy and love to you envelopes – and it looks so cute!  For this project, get a nice heavy duty marker to color in the heart.  This will work well if you used a lighter color of acrylic paint, as you can see the red had no problem covering the grey paint.
On a small strip of paper stamp the sentiment you choose to share, and simply glue it in the heart, taking a moment to edge the words with a marker or pencil, adding definition and interest.  There would be so many fun ways to use this on an envelope or card, and I am not kidding when I say I can not wait to make loads of these for my stash!
Project Three: Art Journal Collage
I am an avid art journaler, as you may know from my last post, and exploring emotions through collage and mixed media is one of my favorite ways to spend my creative time.  This was such an easy way to add interest and focus to a collage, I can’t recommend it highly enough!
I had this painted background already on this page.  I often smear paint on several pages and walk away, leaving the backgrounds waiting for me later when I have time to sit and create. This background was ready for me this time around,  but you could use patterned paper or any other medium that you would like for the project.
 I cut this image out of an old magazine (ask your friends to save you theirs and donate them to your studio!) and she sat so perfectly with those wings, I knew they were a match made in heaven.  I glued them both down on my dried background, and added some lettering to express my mood today.
I hope these little projects give you ideas for all the ways you could use the gorgeous Art Foamies from the Rita Barakat line as your work to push your creative skills.  I am so pleased with the way each one of these turned out, and I look forward to many more uses for these adorable wings.
