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.

  1. Great idea to create as a gift for persons planning a new home…the perfect way to journal to their new location. tfs

  2. Really thoroughly enjoyed watching the thought process creating this perfect page. Thanks, as always, for sharing.

  3. That page is awesome!! Your pages are always inspiring to watch, love to watch to process. Wish you would do a video on how you go about deciding to do your page and your process, I know you are working in 2 books, so how do you decide to work in which one? I think that one would be a great a video and very informative. Thanks for sharing .

  4. I enjoy watching your art journal videos. I hope to start art journaling soon. I look forward to your next video.

  5. Awesome page Shari and I am so glad you used the burlap page. I wanted a new Art Journal but doubted if I should purchase the Dina Wakley Media journal because of the different types of pages, I didn’t know how to use those pages. Now I have seen you worked on the burlap and I love that, thanks for helping me to make a decision.

  6. Hi Shari, Cool page, I love when you do your journal pages. This one is really awesome, I like seeing the burlap and the embossing on it, very interesting. Great video. Thanks.

  7. A very nice art journal page Shari, the burlap page is awesome and works beautifully with the truck and the ephemera. I love it, beautifully done!
