Journal spread by Annie Carignan

Hello everyone !

Last week I showed you my Journal Cover, today I am showing my first journal spread.  This page was made with the Cards, Tags and more kit of course !

The 1st thing I did what choosing a card from the kit with the quote number 39 that says :

“Feel inspired by all the colors of the Rainbow. What does your personal rainbow look like ?”

That is when I thought of kids, instantly.  I took my watercolors and started to put some on the left side and with water, I made the colors drop from one side to the other. Like this :

 

Once the paint was dry, I took different stamps from my stash and put them all over the spread.  I adhered the card I had chosen and added some words from the kit with cute small flowers.

 

I finished with some journaling about my inspiration :

 

 

 

I hope this will help you to be inspired and just start creating without overthinking it ! Don’t be afraid to just start something and see where it takes you 🙂

Annie

Art Journal Cover – May Cards, Tags and more Kit

Hello Hello !!!

This month is really special and different.  I don’t know if you saw Kim’s video revealing this month’s kit but I thought it was such a good idea to create a kit with a Journal that can be used on a long period.

If you want more details of this kit here is the link to the video :

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=89BN45WQo7k

Today I decided I would show you my Journal cover.  To be honest, I was scared at first because I had not touched Journaling for a very long time and I thought the inspiration would never come.  I took a few days to think about it and thought to myself : What inspires you ? What do you like ? What represents YOU ? I used my favorite colors of course 🙂

I went back to my old Art Journals and they really gave me ideas.  I remembered that I always started with a background like tissu paper, or old books or dictionaries.

I took some pages from the Planner Kit and adhered them with Matte Gel.  Once that was dry, I put some Acrylic Paint from my stash (Finnabair Art Alchemy Impasto MINT) using a spatula.  I used a stencil with Nuvo Mousse and the stamp from the Scrapbook Kit.

I used embellishments from previous kits and a lot of flowers from my stash.  I finished off with some words from the Art Daily Planner Sentiments.

Material used :

Prima – Art Daily 58Piece Planner Kit

Prima – Art Daily Planner – Sentiments

Prima – Art Daily Planner – 

Metal Bookmarks

All Pink layout by Annie Carignan

Hello!

presenting today another layout from May Scrapbook Kit at Tres Jolie.

Lots of beautiful products included :

I took this wooden paper from Lemon Craft as my background and put a coat of Clear gesso first.

I used a stencil from my stash with Modeling Paste and created a design starting at the top right coming down in the middle.  Once that was dry I used watercolours , Red, Pink and Orange on the paste. I also did a few splashes here and there.

If you remember for my first layout this month, I had kept some peaces of chipboard : I used them for this layout .  I also used some of the paper clocks and butterflies I had previously cut out.  I added some cheese cloth, flowers and Nuvo dots.  To finish, I took some White Gesso mixed with a little bit of water and did some splashes.

Here are some close-ups :

 

 

The small phrases are from the Cards, Tags and more kit.

 

I almost always use the vellum you can find in Prima flower packs, LOVE them 🙂

 

 

Also used the cute bow pin and badge.

Weekend by Annie Carignan

Hello everyone !  Spring is here and I think this kit contains the best colors to make beautiful layouts of Spring or sunny Summer days!!!!

This one was pretty simple to make because I loved the background so much  that I wanted to hide little as possible.  The flower corner was my first inspiration.  I took a very delicate stencil from my stash that has small flowers just to create a bit of texture.  I took some Pink watercolor to add color but not a lot.  I used the 12×12 paper that had cut outs plus the Ephemeras (clocks and butterflies) for embellishments.  I used one of the chipboards from Creative Embellishments and finished with a badge, flowers and also the Nuvo Pink to make dots.

Here are some close-ups :

“Open the Door” Art Journal tutorial

Hey guys, Kim here with a video tutorial using our Cards, Tags and More kit. This month we have something along the more side of this kit. It’s an art journal. We have the Prima Daily Art Journal kit and some embellishments.

I must admit, I am not much of an art journal(er). This was completely outside of the box for me. In the end I have to say I am very happy with the results and look forward to bringing you more content on this kit.

 

Let’s first take a look at the kit:

The kit contains the full Art Journal kit which has 58 pieces (journal, insert and journal prompt cards). It also includes some metal clips and the daily sentiments as extra embellishments.

What I have come to love about this kit is I don’t need a lot of time to be creative with it. The journal card gives me the prompt and I can get right to work. Perfect if I am feeling creative, but don’t have a lot of time.

It also gives me a canvas to try new things and not worry about “messing up” whole sheets of paper or full packs of embellishments. It’s the perfect size canvas to just let your creative self go.

Here are my first completed pages:

 

Like I said, I am really happy with how they turned out.

Here is a video of my process:
