Art Journaling with Shari Carroll
Welcome to the blog!! It’s Shari here with a different type of Art Journal page. For the next couple of months, I will be adding to this new idea of a Circle Journal. This page started out with Canson Watercolor paper and the Simon Says Stamp Nested Circle dies. I used the largest die which is 5.5″.
I’ve been wanting to focus on some inking techniques and what better way but to cut my specialty papers as I go and give it a try! I will eventually bind these pages together with binder rings to hang in my craft space as a reminder.
The Galaxy background is one I haven’t tried yet. I thought it would be a perfect start to this new year and the new decade. I’ve used regular Distress inks for this one and I’m sure I’ll be trying this same technique with Oxides on down the road.
I hope I’ve inspired you to step out of your box and try a shape journal full of techniques along with me. Enjoy!!
so pretty – love how your created the galaxy effect
These are gorgeous Shari
This is such a fun take on art journaling!
So very gorgeous and beautiful!!
This is gorgeous!
Wow! Incredible galaxy background! It was fun watching you ink blend!
I love this! The background is perfect!
Great way to start the New Year!
I love your beautiful galaxy circle!
Awesome and I like the shape.
I really like the technique, but don’t think I’d like the cleaning up afterward.
Great idea! I enjoy making journals, but never thought of using my shape dies. Come to think of it, this technique would also work great with the large rectangular nesting set! Thanks for sharing, I will have to add this to my things to try list.
What a cool project!
The Galaxy Background really Looks like it is from out of this world. Amazing !
Awesome page, I love that you worked on a circle!
I’m lookin forward to this years Art Journal videos from you, always learn something.
Thank you so much for sharing and have a great week.
Love the sparkle! Awesome project!
Great project Shari. Love the galaxy background. I never realize how many colors there are in these backgrounds but each serves a purpose to make a lovely night sky!
