How you Bean… Nicole here and I am sharing my Art Journal pages in my 115 year old book!  ACK… I know it’s old but it is so much fun.  Not everything I get in the mail is something I would normally create with.   That doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy the challenge of making this my own style.  It creatively opens my mind up and pushes my limits. I picked this pretty spring paper Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Rainbow Petite Paper pack.  I do love plaid.  I stamped on the pattern paper and wait for it… fussy cut. All those jelly’s stamped and yes, more fussy cutting.  I wanted to layer and stack the jars.  Trimming the beans so they spill the way the jars tilt. ACK… trying the new Ranger Distress Oxide Ink by watercoloring the jelly’s.  Love them!!!  Time to make this easy and my Xyron Create a Sticker to adhere all these jelly…

It’s a 3-in-1 challenge! by Kerry Engel Many of you have been using Creative Scrapbooker Magazine’s sketchy challenge as your inspiration-spring-board, creating some beautiful layouts and cards but did you know that you could use a sketch to inspire you in your art journal too? I’m still relatively new to the art journal game. To be honest sometimes I look at all my yummy layers and colorful pages and while I love the techniques and I realize that it’s about ‘playing’ and exploring, at the end I wish that they made more sense.  Visual sense. Visual sense for me starts at the beginning; when I think about the direction or movement that I want in my page. That’s where having a sketch as a launching point helps. I loosely used this months sketch to contain my techniques and create movement down the middle. I really liked how it turned out…

Here is a blog post from April 2012 that Christy created – in her words. She sure loved art journaling – and we sure loved what she created. I was recently asked, “Why should a scrapbooker take time to art journal?” The answer is simple. An art journal is a place to make mistakes, experiment with mediums, looks, and just play. Very often I take ideas I have developed in my art journal and turn them into Scrapbook pages. I took the above page and turned it into this layout. Materials Used: Fancy Pants paper and Rub Ons, Bazzill cardstock, ChromaColour Paint, Marvy Pen, 3L Adhesives How I did it…. To create this fun frame I first placed a scrap of paper in the middle of where I wanted my frame. Next I took paint and sponged it along the edges sporadically. When done sponging I lifted it and replaced…

Hi Everyone! It’s Lynn Shokoples here today to share a page in my Bible I made featuring the BoBunny Believe Collection. There is also a video tutorial to show how the page came together. I hope you enjoy! So let’s get started For this page I used the 12×12 Patterned Paper from the BoBunny Believe Collection called “Divine”.  On one side are fun elements to cut out, but on the flipside are fun black & white flowers . I cut a margin strip from the paper and some extra flowers. I added some color using my Prismacolor and Polychromo Pencil Crayons. For the background I took a Caran D’Ache NeoColor II crayon and used it for a watercolor effect. After it was dried, I used the new Transparent Gel from BoBunny to adhere the strip and the flowers to my bible! The Transparent Gel is a fabulous product. It’s not…

Today on our blog we welcome Lynn Shokoples, who is on the BoBunny Design Team, and loves creating faith-based projects! Hi Everyone! I’m Lynn Shokoples from BoBunny, and today I am here to share a Faith Journal project I am working on, using the BoBunny BELIEVE collection. Faith Journaling has become very popular in the last year.
