Triadic colours and some Art Journaling too…

I have two projects to share with you today, one art journaling page and one layout. I used complementary colours for the layout I posted in the beginning of this month – a green background with details in the complementary colour red. This time I went for a green background again, but using a triadic colour scheme and the accent colours orange and purple.



I started this layout by covering the cardstock with gesso. I then used acrylic paint, in three different green colours, and covered my page. When the paint was dry I added Glimmer Mist Glarney and Chalkboard Mist Sprout. Then I added another layer using a stencil from Crafter’s Workshop and gesso. Again I let everything dry and then I added Glimmer Mists Blarney and Olive Vine and Chalkboard Mist Sprout.


I also stamped some circles using Glimmer Glam Private Meadow and an empty toilet roll. For the accents, I misted tissue paper with Glimmer Mist Deep Plum and Candy Corn and Chalkboard Mist Grape Ape. I also coloured the wooden embellishment with Glimmer Glaze Wicked.



Some washi tape, a Cocoa Daisy stamp, the cute wooden girl coloured with mist… The title means “walk and walk”.



Perhaps the stamping on the photo needs some explanation. :) It’s Swedish and means “full speed”.



My journaling page started out as a sketch. I’m practicing, learning more for each drawing I make…



I coloured the background using Plain Jane Simply Sheer Aqua. I removed the lid and painted the colour onto my page, using a paintbrush.



I coloured the face using acrylic paint.



I coloured the hair, using Neocolour II crayons and acrylic paint.



I wrote my journaling on the background and then I covered most of it up, using mist and gesso. The first thing I did was using a stencil from Crafter’s Workshop together with the Simply Sheer Aqua mist and Sugar Plum Fairy Glimmer Mist. When the mist was dry I added gesso on top, using another stencil. On top of the dry gesso I added Dragonfly Glimmer Mist, using a paint brush. I also sprayed some Glimmer Mist Graphite on top.



To finish my page I covered the hair with Glimmer Glam Caspian Sea – I LOVE that effect on top of the black paint – and I dripped some Blue Oasis Glimmer Glaze onto the background.





Thank you so much for stopping by the Tattered Angels Inspiration blog today! I hope you enjoyed seeing my process for the art journaling page and the difference between a complementary and a triadic colour scheme, from my September layouts.


Have a lovely day!
