A Starry Starry Art Journal Page

This week I continue to be inspired by the wonderful Lady Pattern Paper range. And even though I find myself constantly being drawn to the new range of papers and designs I have not forgotten about the Basic Essentials at all. I used some of the basic range to create this beautifully elegant and simplistic art journal page titled “now is the right time”.
Art Journal Page - Beautiful Stars

Here’s how I created my starry art journal page, step x step:

Step 1

Cut a variety of paper strips. I did not measure at all but simply cut those using my tonic trimmer – whatever happened was good enough to use. And if you are not at all worried then cut them freehand, as anything goes in art journaling.

Step 2

Adhere the paper strips in a weave pattern along the one corner of your background page. For this page I worked on a 5×7” watercolour page.

TIP: I used a combination of Tombow adhesive and a glue stick to adhere my strips. You can also adhere them using gel medium but I sued what was at hand.

Step 3

Apply a thin layer of gesso using a palette knife. A thin layer of gesso will still enable you to see the paper colours and designs adding lots of interest to your overall design and end result.

Step 4

Then add a variety of stamped images and stencilling to the background once the gesso is dry. I used a soft grey colour to add to the soft muted look on the background.

Use the same star stencil and add stars using texture paste.

For my title I stamped the wording in a black ink making it stand out against the background a bit more. The effect is subtle but still obvious.

I love how the Lady Pattern Paper papers still stand out, but also totally blend into their background surrounds – finding a new home and purpose for those tiny little paper off-cut strips.

And that’s how easy it is to create an art journaling page using your scraps and a few added extras.
