What Seems Ordinary Art Journal Page

Hi Oddballs.  EK here from ekgorman designs sneaking in today to share a pictorial tutorial of an Art Journal Page I made using the super cute IMG313 Suns with and without faces.

I started by printing out the five suns without faces onto some cardstock and pulled my 5x7 Dylusions Art Journal out.

Then I added a quick touch of blended Dylusions paint over the suns.  I used Squeezed Orange, Postbox Red, and Bubblegum Pink.

I fussy cut out the suns.

I then blended the same three colors onto the pages of my journal.

Using a make shift stencil, I added some orange paint through it.  I am pretty sure there was some old ink on the stencil, so the color came through not quite as pure, but I ended up liking the look.

I did the same with the red paint and a star stencil.

The same happened with the pink and a square stencil.

Using my finger, I smudged some heavy body burnt umber paint onto the bottom of the page.

Using some Matte Medium, I added the suns onto the journal pages.  I then added another layer of matte medium over the entire journal pages and let it dry.

Using a Permanent Green Olive Pitt Big Brush Pen, I drew in flower stems and leaves.

I added detail to the red flowers with the Deep Scarlet Red Pitt Big Brush Pen.

The pink flowers got some detail work with the Magenta Pitt Big Brush Pen.

The orange flower got a touch of Scarlet Red Pitt Big Brush Pen.

Using my white gel pen, I added some detail work to the stems, flowers, and base of the art journal page.

I then outlined the flowers with a dash and dot pattern with the gel pen.

Using another stencil, I traced the square pattern around the edges of the journal page with my black .5 pen on first one page...

...then the other.

I mixed up some fluid white acrylic paint with some water...

...and splattered white paint all over the journal pages.

Finally, I added a sentiment from a Tim Holtz sentiment sticker pack.

February ATC Swap

Have you made your ATC's yet for the February Oddball Art ATC Swap?  The theme this month for the ATCs is "Cute or Die" and I've tried to use both words while creating these cards!

Here are my three cards that I can't wait to send out to new home!

All three cards were made using more or less the same techniques and products, just different colors.

My First ATC features the utter cute #210 Whimsical Ragdoll Zeddy the Zebra.  I printed him out onto some cardstock and colored it in with my prisma colored pencils, and fussy cute the image out.  ATC base was created using my Gelatos, some faber-castell textured lux and some prima marking mica flakes.  I added a sentiment stickers from Tim Holtz clippings stickers.

My second card features Oddball's #248 Spooky Sweet Skulls.  They were also colored with colored pencils and fussy cut out.  The background of the ATC also was colored with Gelatos and then a stencil was added and the gelato was rubbed off with a baby wipe.  Then bits of mica flakes were added and some more textured lux.

My final ATC has been created with one of my favorite digis from Oddball Art, the super sweet #360 Dragon on a Mushroom.  This also was colored with colored pencils and fussy cut.  The background was colored with more gelatos and a stencil and baby wipe were used to removed some of the color.  Finally, I added some Tim Holtz chit chat stickers.

Make certain you load your ATC's to the Oddball Facebook ATC file so that the team knows you want to send your cards to new homes!  Need a few new digis to play with, then use this code DTEK10 to get 10% off your entire purchase!
