“Information You Can Use” (All Because Of Scraps) Art Journal Page

“Information You Can Use” Art Journal Page

I was in the mood to play in my “All Because Of Scraps” art journal the other day so I gathered up some scraps and glued them down on the page.  Below are step by step photos of the process.  It’s fun, relaxing and a easy way to use up scraps in your scrap bin.  Give it a try.  You  never know what you will get just from using scraps.

Step 1: Starting with a blank page, I glued down scraps from my scrap bin on the page using a glue stick.

Step 2 : I glued down some borders I have had in my stash a long time. I cut them into different lengths and glued those on top of the scraps with a glue stick.

This is what the page looks like after the borders were glued on.

Step 3: I also had some negative space die cut scraps in my scrap bin so I pulled those out and glued them on top of the borders with a glue stick.

Step 5:  I used white paint and a floral stencil all over the page.

Step 6: I used blue paint and a floral stencil all over the white stenciling.

Step 7: I used black paint and a letter stencil over the blue stenciling.

Step 8:  I added some words to all of the bottles.

Step 9: I painted a small section with a little bit of white paint so I could add a title.  Then, I added the title “Information You Can Use”. This is just a partial sentence I cut out of a magazine. I thought it was interesting so I added it.

Step 10: With a black Posca pen I outlined the title, the bottles and the words on the bottles. Then I added white dots around the black outline on the bottles using a Sharpie White Poster Paint Pen (water based) marker.

Step 11: I mixed some raw umber and glazing medium together in equal parts and painted it over the entire page. I let it dry just a few seconds then I wiped off the excess with a soft cloth leaving a light stained color on the page.

Step 12: I sealed the page with a light coat of Mod Podge.

That’s it.  I love how it came out. This page would not exist if not for scraps.  But it DOES exist now All Because Of Scraps! 🙂
