Art Journaling with Shari Carroll

Welcome to the blog everyone and happy Tuesday!

I have an art journal feature today that represents my comfort zone. Of all colors, I love neutrals!! Soft muted tones are easiest for me to design with. What colors are you most comfortable with?

I started out with my Dina Wakley media journal (watercolor pages) and some amazing paper from 49 and Market Captured Adventure collection. These papers are 6×6 double sided and are about a 60lb weight, very sturdy! There are 2 sheets of each of 9 designs, and they have 2 sheets of laser cut elements that you can use on your creations.

I used a sheet of 6×6 paper on each of the two pages of my journal layout, then added strips of cut paper to balance the page. I added a bit of embossing past with the Simon Says Stamp Damask and Tim Holtz Numeric stencils. Once the paste was dry, I added a hint of color with Prima Metallique Light Patina acrylic paint.

I glued down a Simon Says Stamp Cosmo Flower Frame and Alexandra Renke Poppy flower die cut from black cardstock. Once I had my flowers in place, I added elements from the 49 and Market laser cuts and Tim Holtz Quote Chips for my journal title.

  1. Wow. I’m amazed at how fabulous your finished pages look with such a muted colour palette. Love the bold die cuts on top of all that lovely texture and design. I enjoyed watching you work. Thank you. Hugs, Lesley
