"And so the adventure begins" is a very fitting title to use on my very first project on this new design team adventure for iCraft Australia. This art journal page was a lot of fun to make as I had been given a whole bunch of new products to play with, who wouldn't like that?
This page was created with lots of iCraft chalk paint and a Layering stencil (iCraft supplies used are listed and linked at the bottom of this blog post) and a few background stamps, a collage butterfly element and a sentiment sticker from my stash to finish it off.
To finish off, I fussy cut a butterfly collage element and glued it on with a sentiment sticker. I also used a white gel pen to add highlights to the circles and outline the sentiment to make it stand out more.
I hope this Art Journal page inspires you to get out your paints and stencils and start journaling or just to have a play! Much thanks for looking at my project.
All the products from iCraft that were used in this project are listed below.

I have been loving working on Tracy Scott lace cut books but been wanting to make my own. I'm not always patient so thought to get out my Brother Scan n Cut machine. Sometimes, this leads me off on a whole other tangent, a common crafting problem I think! I have a slight addiction to stencils as well so I wanted to see if I could make my own. Some of this exercise was a success and some not but the learning journey for me is the important part. A bit more practice with bridging certain sections and clarifying my lines and hopefully I'll get there. The ultimate dream is to one day be able to design and produce my own line of stencils and other products. In the mean time? Back to the drawing board.

Seeing as we are close to Christmas I decided to do a non-traditional Christmas theme in Jenny's Stuff and Nonsense Themed journal.
To start with I applied white Gesso to the pages in this Journal. I then applied black, blue, violet and white paint with a sponge to create an Ombre background.

My other friend Cat, is horrified at the things I mix together sometimes, but if we don't try different techniques how will we learn? How do you think the experts became experts in their field? I guess because of the cost of materials sometimes, people don't want to waste their products, which is fair enough. So I experiment on ATC (Artist Trading Card) sized samples so I don't waste a lot, but can still see if I will be successful or not.
A friend of mine (Hi Ric:) asked me to show him some samples of what it looks like when Ranger and Tom Holtz's Distress Oxides are applied to Glossy Paper and then covered in Distress Glaze. I had fun using this Technique so I decided to video my findings. It is only the second video I have ever done, so please be kind as I am learning about cameras and editing software etc. I am always open to suggestions, tips and questions as well. Click on this link to view the video.
Below are close up photos of the samples from the video and names of products I used.
