Be The Rainbow....art journal

Welcome to my blog! You came on a great day - I have an art journal entry to share.
This one started with a quote - Be The Rainbow In Someone Else's Cloud.
This is my mantra every day.

I started by directly applying the ink by running the Distress Oxide ink pads horizontally across both pages. I spritzed with some water while drying with my heat tool. Pretty simple and really fast.

Next I took a brand new to me Silhouette & Mask Stencil from Dyan Reaveley & Ranger. I love these! They are so versatile and so much fun.
I used the stencil on the left page and layered the images. Then I used the largest sized mask on the right page and applied black Dylusions paint over the entire page.

I stamped my sentiment on the right hand page by using Versamark black ink over the image and Distress Oxide ink over the black paint. I absolutely love how these inks show up over the the dark background.

I finished off my pages by using my Dylusions white paint pen to outline the figures and drawing some lines around the page on the right side.


  1. Oooh, gorgeous colours on your beautiful page Julia and the sentiment is wonderful! The white edging is such a lovely touch, it really makes the images 'pop'! Anne x

  2. These pages are just perfection! I remember the first time I took black and painted over some of my colorful detail work...it kind of freaked me out, at first, but when I saw the results...what fun it became!!! This one, though...just over the TOP!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment! I really appreciate it!
