‘New Leaf’ Art Journal Page

Hello all!
It’s Lisa here today to share some inspiration with you.

Here is the art journal page that I have created,
from my ‘Park Ave Penthouse’ Journal.

I have gone for a natural feel to this page.
I have started with a coat of ‘Haute Mess Clear Gesso’, to seal my page.

I have then used ‘Haute Mess White Gesso’ and a stencil to sponge through my alphabet.
I have then used ‘Haute Mess Acrylic Paints’ in both ‘Grunge’ and ‘C-note’ to stencil on to my page.

I have then added the leaf stencil and ‘Million Dollar Baby’ to stencil through on to my page.
I have then added a simple word sticker to finish.

I hope that you like what I have created.

Just As I Am

Happy weekend y’all!!  I hope you are having a wonderful one so far!  I’m going to be honest with you, when I sat down to work in my journal this week I was at a loss.  Creativity was not my friend and I just wasn’t feeling it.  I decided I was going to make a background and layer a few pieces and call it a day.  I had no really direction when I started.

Since I really enjoyed my sheet music page I did last week but didn’t have another page in my journal like that I grabbed a page from a vintage hymnal and brushed on some watered down “Fallen Angel” Haute Mess acrylic paint.

I then mixed some Haute Mess molding paste and mixed some “Kiss & Don’t Tell” acrylic paint and applied it over a stencil onto the page before removing the stencil to reveal the design.

Once the tinted molding paste was dried I applied a bit of “Grunge” Haute Mess” acrylic paint with a pallet knife.  I love that this paint is so nice and thick, it really lends itself to this type of application and still gave some great added texture.

Really loving the design at this point, I decided to add some diluted “Torrid” Haute Mess acrylic paint to give a watercolor effect to the center of the heart.  (this has become one of my favorite colors and favorite ways to apply it)

By this point I decided I was no longer just making a background.  I had found my design and realized I had just perfectly framed my title.  From there everything just totally made sense.  I inked up a distressed line rubber stamp with some “Bad & Tatted” Haute Mess acrylic paint and stamped it at the bottom of the page to give it an anchor point.

Then I added the butterfly diecut sticker and layered a Tim Holtz paper doll to reflect the them of the page.

Finally I added a metallic rub over the page to give it some shimmer.

Beauty of Nature with Lisa Amiet

Hello all!
It’s Lisa here today to share some inspiration with you.
I have an art journal page that I have created from my
‘Park Ave Penthouse Journal’ 

You may recognize the first half of this spread, from
when I first started my journal. I knew then that I wanted to work the next two pages,
with the same theme.

I didn’t want to alter the acetate page too much, so I simply stenciled,
with my ‘Molding Paste’, this lovely damask pattern.

I have used the same colours and elements, to give a natural feel to this page.

I have used my Haute Mess ‘Gesso’ and ‘Matte Gel Mediums’,
along with some papers and acetate pieces.

The acrylic paint colours I have used are
‘Mannequin’, ‘Dive Bar’, ‘Grunge’ and ‘Distortion’
I have finished with some ‘Glass Bead Gel’

I love how these pages tie together with the acetate sheets and embellishments.
I hope you like it too!

Until next Time!!

Lisa

‘Enjoy the little things’ by Lisa Amiet

 

Hello Bad girls!
It’s Lisa here today to share some inspiration with you.
I have been doing a little painting in my
‘Park Ave Penthouse’ Art Journal.

‘Enjoy the little things’

I have started with a coat of Haute Mess ‘Clear Gesso’ to seal my page.
I then gave it a coat of Haute Mess Acrylic Paint in ‘C-Note’.

I have then used a mix of Haute Mess Acrylic Paint in
‘Dive Bar’ & ‘Distortion’ for the framing trees.

I have then used Haute Mess Acrylic Paint in
‘Drama Queen’ & ‘Million Dollar Baby’,
to add foliage to the trees, in a pattern that resembles Wisteria hanging.

I have then added flowers using Haute Mess Acrylic Paint in
‘Hippie in High Heels’ & ‘Bye Felicia’

I have then added some background scenery,
a path using a mix of Haute Mess Acrylic Paint in
‘Grunge’, ‘Dive Bar’ & ‘Distortion’.

Some hills, and finally some trees in the distance,
I have mixed together some ‘Million Dollar Baby’ & ‘Bad & Tatted’,
to give me a dark rich green.
I have also used some ‘C-Note’ & ‘Distortion’

I hope you like what I have created, it was fun to have a play.

Until next time!

Lisa

Splatters, Rips, and Flair, Oh My!

Hello, friends!

Today I’m sharing a grungy layout I made using the January scrapbook kit with the FABULOUS 7 Dots Paint Chips papers! My style is usually shabby chic-like, but I have two boys, so it’s fun to do some grunge-type layouts, and this kit was perfect for that!

I started out by adding some circle stenciling with distress ink, and also some faux stitching to the edge of the base layer. This is easy to do- if you have one of those sewing wheels, you can just run along the paper, and then pierce the holes with a needle, then trace it with a marker. I also ripped the paper and used some black cardstock in between those layers for added dimension.

I cut some circles from the blue/green paper, then stamped each of them using a stitched circle stamp with embossing medium, and added black embossing powder. I added flair to 3 of the four circles.

On the bottom circle, I added some stars, and some numbers from my stash, which is the title of the layout (15, because this pic was taken on my son’s 15th birthday).

I inked the paint splatters chipboard with black archival ink, and added the layout. I also added some  word stickers.

Lastly, I added many splatters over the entire layout, except for the photo. I added both black and white India ink from my stash, and some of the blue Tattered Angels Glitter Glam.

 

Thanks for checking out my project, and go to the shoppes and pick up a kit, if you aren’t already a subscriber!
