Spotlights and winner for the Art Journal Challenge


We have six artists in the Designer Spotlight for the Art Journal Challenge!

#9 Cassie Lynch – Macarena says: I love the retro mood Cassie kept on this page using shades of browns and greens, the background delicate texture is very pretty and I love the touches of tissue patterned papers here and there. Good vintage job!

#9 Cassie Lynch – Emma also loved Cassie’s beautiful vintage journal page and particularly loved the warm colours she used, the detailed layers and all the wonderful texture. It was stunning and such a fabulous design.

#12 Live Your Dreams – Meihsia says: These are such gorgeous art journal pages with fabulous colors and textures! I love the beautiful layered embellishments and the distressed effect on the edges of the pages. Such a fantastic design!

#37 Wrapped_PaperdesignAnna-Karin says: This is such a cool art journal page. I love the black and white combo, with just the little bit of brown. And the very cool opposites, in that one page is white with black text and elements, and the facing page is black with white text and elements. It is also great to see an art journal page with so much handwriting.

#41 Kelly Schimer – Andrea says: I love this clever take on our challenge theme!  This card, inspired by journaling techniques, is absolutely stunning with its inky star-splattered sky and the beautifully-patterned village houses.

#55 Maggie – Zoey says: i love the soft color scheme used in this art journal spread, it is calm and dreamy – pun not intended! The background is so rich of textures, the flowers turned out amazingly! Well done!

#58 Liz Oswald – Zoey says: This page is so deep and cool! Love the color scheme and the whole take on this week’s theme! The flowers add a really awesome layer over this so textured background! Love the mix of stamps and the stars are such a cool add! Very well done Liz! I love it!
