Art Journaling


Hey Creative Scrapbooker Fans! For today’s blogpost, I’m sharing with you my Be Bold, Be Brave Art Journal Page. To create my page, I’ve used a variety of products from Ranger Ink, Super Stock  from Creative Scrapbooker Magazine and adhesive from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. You’ll want to grab a cup of your favourite beverage and learn how to recreate my art journal at home. To start, you’ll need to choose a page from your art journal. I’m using Dina Wakley’s Art Journal from Ranger Ink and using a linen piece. Apply Carnation Acrylic Paint from Ranger Ink with a paint brush to the page as desired. I focused my colour more in the bottom right side of the page.  Place the Dina Wakley Stencil – Bumps from Ranger Ink on the page.Next, you’ll need a blending tool with foam and Dina Wakley Acrylic Paint in Elephant from Ranger Ink.…

It is great fun filling your art journal but what about the cover? Hey makers, Nicole Wright here and in this post, I will be showing you how to add bling to your Art Journal cover.  I have adorned my cover with Finnabair Mixed Media products from Prima Marketing Inc.  It’s all about the layers so take that creative leap and express yourself. I used my Iris Tapestry stencil as my base layer.  Here, you can add patterns randomly to your journal using Art Extravagance Golden Nugget and the Mixed Media Silicon Brush. A layer of dictionary paper is applied with Soft Gloss Gel.  Spray the page with a little water until damp, tear and apply the Soft Gloss Gel on the top and bottom of the paper. I created flowers using the Cherry Blossom Mould using hot glue in a pinch.  There are a lot of Moulds to check…

Hello everyone, Nicole Wright here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog with a fun process video creating a Travellers Notebook featuring a variety of products by  Prima  Marketing. Travellers Notebooks are trending and I can see why.  These compact notebooks can be used for a variety of applications.  You can create a bullet journal, use them for writing, note-taking, sketching, mixed media, take them to crafty classes to name a few uses.  Using Eileen Hull’s Journal Scoreboard die is perfect to fit the inserts or add pages.  This journal just returned from Spain and I filled it with inspiration. Watch to see how I create this Travellers Notebook.  This quick video shows the techniques I use to create textures and layers with paints and mediums. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-EO_C6OFBYI Here is a closer look at the details you can create with various Prima Marketing Finnabair products.  I really love the inside of…

Hey crafters… have you ever wanted to make your own stencils?  Nicole here on the blog today showing you how I saw a design I liked and then proceed to create stencils of my own.  Brother ScanNCut2 CM650W comes pre-loaded with so many designs for cutting anything you can think of.  I decided to see how cutting a stencil would work with my Mixed Media Art Journal.  I’ll show you what I learned.  I started by loading a small piece of Mylar I had in my scrap bin.  Adhere to the 12x 12 low tack mat and load into the machine.  Select Pattern, select the loaded design and then adjust your size of cut to the size of material you have cut.  I have selected the word Spring and 2 floral designs to cut. You can move your cut anywhere on your cutting mat.  The grid pattern helps you not waste…

Hey Creative Scrapbooker Fans! Katelyn Grosart back on the blog today to share with you a fun art journal page. Summer has arrived and the inspiration for my project definitely came from all the bright colours that come with summer. The jumping off point for my project was the Small Patterns & Forever & Always collections from Wild Whisper Designs which combined with a variety of mediums and art journal from Ranger Ink, stencils from Stampers Anonymous, a die from Elizabeth Craft Designs and adhesive from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, I was able to create my fun I Have an Entire Forest Art, Journal Page. You’ll want to grab a cup of your favourite beverage as I share with you how I created my page. For the background of my art journal pages, I put a base coat of White Gesso from Ranger Ink on the pages. With the gesso…

This week, in our regular #RememberingChristy segment, we are looking back to the Fall 2015 issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine. Christy Riopel was an avid art journaler. We could literally fill pages and pages of our magazine with her beautiful work. In the fall 2015 issue, she contributed one of her art journal pages to a feature we did on ‘The Joy of Journaling’.  This design would later become a staple in Chirsty’s art journaling classes. It was the first design she introduced her students to and can probably be found in everyone’s art journal who was lucky enough to have taken one of Christy’s classes. Here is Christy’s design. I hope you are able to find some time today to art journal or find a little you time! Have a wonderful Saturday everyone. In loving memory of Christy Riopel – we continue to raise money for the Christy Riopel…

Hi everyone.  Karen Ellis here.   Today is my day on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog to share with you something that I’ve been working on.This weekend my mind, like so many of us, was on Hurricane Irma and the disaster she left  in her wake in the Caribbean and the state of Florida.  As a survivor of a natural disaster myself (lost my home in a F4 tornado), I know what it is like to lose everything (including friends and neighbours) and what it means to rebuild.  I know you all will join me in wishing the survivors the very best, a fast recovery and a quick rebuild from the devastation of Hurricane Irma. While watching the news coverage, I took to my studio and opened to an unfinished page in my art journal and created this layout I’m sharing with you today.  I enjoy going to my journal when…
