Art Journaling with Shari Carroll: Keeping the Peace

Welcome, crafty friends, and happy February! It’s Shari here today with an art journal page using my Dina Wakley 6×6 White Journal. I love the size of this journal because I can use a lot of my card-making supplies which fit perfectly on the pages.

I’ve played around with some Distress sprays and die cuts to create a colorful layout but I also allowed some white space to remain. I’ve left the die-cut leaves white so they pop against the background colors.

I love how my first layer of Dina Wakley Collage paper is still visible through all the layers of ink, the messages are the prompt and feeling for the page.

I have filmed the entire process which is below, I hope you enjoy it!

  1. Shari,

    What a beautiful page! I love all your artwork, especially when you showcase using your supplies for things other than cardmaking. I have been using a lot of DR products lately; great page!! The first thing I thought when I saw this was this can’t be a Shari page; there are no soft muted colors (lol). I love ALL your work! 🥰💗

  2. Don’t know why you thought you were going wrong. This was great and love watching you work. What is the medium that you use to stick the die cuts down with? Thank you for sharing your talents with us.
