Hi, Pia here, with a gorgeous kit from PattyB Scraps, Lullaby and Good Night. This is the perfect kit for anyone with baby or small children photos. Delicate colours and lots of beautiful elements. It’s hard to choose which ones to use. And the best thing is that it’s on sale right now, so hurry to visit the shop. The sale ends on Oct 12th. It’s also available as a wonderful bundle. Just look at the page kit preview here below.

Brrrrrr!! I don’t know about anyone else…but Fall has officially arrived in Northern NY!!! Its ok though…it’s beautiful this time of year but sure has gotten cold!!!

Ok so we have been doing this Progressive Art Journal Challenge for quite a few months now so I think that everyone has the basics down!! So this month I am going to toss a bit of a challenge for you!!!

So I know that many people love to scrap with templates..and I have had many people ask me “Are there any Art Journal Templates out there?” The answer is well yes and no. Since art journaling is personal and you want to work with how you FEEL when creating a page, technically you don’t want to just plop papers in and clip them to template elements.  Sooooo…how are we going to do this?

 

Week 1: I am going to be sending you out on an expedition! In search of things for your page!!!

Step 1 :  First things first. You need to first pick a template that you want to use. One with more layers the better!!!

While you can use any TEMPLATE for this challenge (**reminder, I always forget this part…80% of GDS product por favor!**) if you are stumped and just not sure what to pick I have to recommend a couple of really great new templates for you!!!

Jill from Created by Jill Scraps has these great new BLENDIT layered templates  that make turning your papers of any kit into a great art journal background!!! Right now she has the two bundles on sale 20% OFF. I am on Jill’s CT (have been for eons!) and have used these templates and I have to admit they are kinda brilliant! (but don’t tell her I said so!! :-) )

She also has some TUTS on her BLOG that show you exactly how to use these little buggers!!!

Created by Jill Scraps Blendit Bundle 1

created by Jill Scraps Blendit bundle 2

 

** These are just a couple of suggestions! You can use any template you want!

 

Step 2: You need to pick the kit that you want to use! You can use ANYTHING…previous stash builders, your favorite scrap kit. If you don’t know what you want to use and would like to try something new I have a coupon for you!!! I did not create any stash builders this month so if you would like to work with one of my kits here is a coupon.

Coupon Code: 2chmd_50_octpaj

Expires: Oct 31, 2014

Good for one use per customer

Min purchase is  $2.50

Good on any purchase in my store (no max amount so if there are some things that you have been wanting then stock up!!!) The only exclusions are my two brand new kits Morning Mist and Autumn Art both of which are 30% off and BUNDLES which are already 40% OFF Everything else is fair game!

 

Step 3: I want you to use AT LEAST THREE Papers in this page. You can certainly use more (for the blendit templates you will use more) But it has to be a min of 3.

I am going to use one of my new kits Autumn Art which is more traditional scrap than art journal (*gasp!* I know me with traditional scrap??  LOL)  but I want to demonstrate that you can do it with any kit!

2chmd_autumnart_pv1

2chmd_autumnart_pv2

 

I want you to find the kit that you are going to use, and pick out your papers. I plan on using many papers so above is the preview for my papers. If you are only picking a couple of papers (depending on how many your template requires) make a little mini preview of the papers you plan on using to show us. (Make sure you credit the designer please!!) and then show us which template you will be using as well.  (You can also use MULTIPLE kits…doesn’t have to be just one kit..you can certainly mix and match!)

I am going to use Created by Jill Scraps Blendit Layered Template # 4 

5c32db9505191d421a3239d01b93ec58.image.400x400

 

Step 4:  Lets make your background!! Load up your template, and hide all the photo and elements parts.  Leave just the paper parts for now!  Ok..first thing I want you to do is put in your first paper as a background. Now for your second paper, we don’t want to “stack” or just “layer” like  we do in scrap. I want you to find a a stamp, brush, or shape that you love. You can pick something right out of the kit you are using or another one. Use what feels good to you. Create a layer and stamp on that layer, hide the “paper” layer of the template as the stamp or shape, clip your paper to it..whatever is your new “paper”  Now because there is a lot of paint use in art journal mixed media you can add a paint texture overlay and clip it and use your blending modes. I am a huge fan of “multiply” when I use that it makes it cling to the texture but you usually have to duplicate and put a second layer over it and use the soft light to take away the muddiness and then play with the opacity on the multiply layer to get the right effect you are looking for!  For the next paper do the same…play with your blending modes don’t be afraid to experiment.  I use Multiply, Pin Light and Hard like all the time….and it is VERY seldom that I only do ONE layer of blending mode…sometimes I will duplicate four or five times and play around to get the effect I am looking for!!!  ***make sure you save your page so you can edit it as well!***

Step 5:  I know I am giving you TONS this week to do!! So sorry!! LOL.  When you are done…post the preview of the original template (plus credits) your little paper preview (plus credits) and your started page here and in our gallery!

Coming in the future: If you want to scope around, you will be needing at least THREE different fonts for this project!

Ok there it is…get too it!! Happy Creating!

XOXOXOXOX

Happy Sunday !!

New Supreme Team member, Penny, with my first blog post.  Haunted Woods, a free store collaboration with purchase if you spend $15 in the shop.  It’s wonderfully versatile kit for all your Halloween activities and so much more.  You also get templates, splatters, journal cards, word bits and more.

GDS Haunted Woods

 

Here are two layouts with is collaboration.  First, I had a quirky photo of my daughter, taken at a weird angle with all of her Halloween candy.  Upon looking at this template in the collaboration, I knew it would be perfect fit for this photo.  I really love the big photo spot.

My second layout is made with a splatter and a dressed up border.  Three shots of my daughter taken during her school halloween parade were extracted  to complete the look.

Both layouts were a lot of fun to create.  Thanks for looking!!
