Art Journaling With Shari Carroll
Happy April and Happy Easter!!! For some of you…it’s April Fools day!!
I’m here to share my most recent art journal page. I’m working in the Dina Wakley Media journal and have decided to use one of the burlap pages. These may be one of the most challenging type of pages because of the texture so I thought it would be helpful to show you an easy way to work out a clean and simple collage.
This page says it all for me, family, friends, happiness and home.
I started with some Wendy Vecchi embossing paste with the Thatched Layering stencil by Tim Holtz. Then I added my focal point, the Farm Truck from Darkroom Door. I stamped it and painted with watercolors. Then added Walnut Stain Distress ink with a blending tool to tone down the brightness.
I used some pieces from Tim Holtz ephemera packs to build up elements around the truck. I’ve even folded one piece over the page and added a clip to give it some interest.
I used Tim Holtz French washi tape here and there and once I had all my pieces in place, I added simple Tim Holtz Big Chat word stickers suggesting what came to mind as I was working on this layout.
I have filmed a video which you can view below or on our YouTube channel HERE.

Love all the vintage stamps that are coming out. Your page is delightful. Thanks for sharing.
So cool! Love all the ephemera you have layered on the burlap, and that stenciling. Thanks for the inspiration!
That’s so fun! I love the burlap and all the layers – it all goes really well together, so many lovely elements!
I love all of the different textures you used on the journal. And the bird and butterfly—I like that they are so big compared to the usual.
Awesome job! I really like that truck stamp. :)
Thanks so much for sharing this beauty!
Just love that Shari – so perfect on the burlap page!

What a fun page. Love all the texture ♥
Fabulous. Reminds me of my childhood hometown.
I love the way you place things that make them look like they haven’t been placed. Do you know what I mean? Can you learn that or are you born with it? Anyway, I love all your work.
Shari makes amazing projects!! This is gorgeous!
I love all the textures and dimension! TFS

I swear there’s always a bit of alchemy involved in your posts because I never quite know where you’re going with all the mixed media supplies, and then you do your magic, and it makes perfect sense! Thanks for sharing tips for working on burlap too. I would definitely be intimidated by that, so it’s nice to see how you approached it.
Great page – all the elements work so well together! I’ve often wondered how to attach things to burlap – thanks for sharing.
Very creative! I like the burlap background!!!
WONDERFUL in EVERY way!
LOVE IT ALL … feeling INSPIRED, looking forward to scraplifting your ideas for my dearest Dad :)
