Art Journaling with Shari Carroll

Happy NEW YEAR!!!! Here we are 2019!!! Thanks for joining me today!

I’m starting off this new year with an entry in my Dina Wakley Media Journal. This page is one that I’ve been thinking about. I actually had a direction I wanted to go and it turned out as expected without having to force the techniques.

First, I used the Carabelle Studio Mask with Silver Art Spray knowing that the acrylic paint would act as a resist to the watercolors. Instead of spraying through the stencil, I used it as a stamp to create the image which gave me areas to add color, a pattern of circles.

My next layer was the Dina Wakley Collage Paper Faces. This printed tissue paper can be added on top of other designs or colors and they show through. I used Clear Gesso to glue her in place. Yes, you can use gesso for collaging lightweight papers!! I used it so I could add a little detail with Dina Wakley Scribble Sticks on top, other gel mediums will resist water-soluble mediums.

I added in a few Snarky Small Talk Stickers, Tiny Text Remnant Rubs, and the die cut title VOICE to express all the journaling. My journaling is just some of my thoughts, very random and some writing is even upside down to form her hair. Fun right?

  1. Every one of your projects is a surprise to me, because you just think about products in different ways than I do. I love it! Thanks for sharing this. (Also, Voice in My Hair sounds like a memoir that I absolutely want to read.)

  2. This is really lovely Shari. I can see this background done on a card (using w/c paper, of course) as well as an art journal page. I love the look you achieved on it. Well done!

  3. I love all of the colors!! So beautiful!! I should start one but I haven’t even started a planner yet!! Oh me, this year has to be better!!

  4. What a fabulous video. What a spread. Those colors. And… “where is the unsubscribe button for adulthood”… Let me know when you find it ;)

  5. Happy New Year Shari and thank you for all your gorgeous examples and inspiration past year.
