My Art Journaling classes here in Adelaide at Seriously Scrapbooking are so much fun ... we have been having an absolute ball and creating so many amazing pages.
I'm doing two different classes each month ... Art Journaling on a Saturday & Art Journal Freestyle on a Thursday night. Here are the dates of the upcoming classes.
Art Journal Freestyle ...Thursday October 20th 6pm - 9pm Art Journal ...Saturday October 22nd 10am - 12.30pm

Art Journal Freestyle ...Thursday December 22nd 6pm - 9pm
The Saturday class is a set class ... last month we investigated Collaging and working with Serviettes. October 22nd we will be working with a Gel Press or Gelli Plate and creating our own papers. This class will require you to bring the following to assist you in creating your page ... Gel Plate (only if you have one), Brayer, paint, gel medium, stencils and baby wipes. There will be plates available to purchase at the class too. Please note that this class will not be repeated this year.
The class will be $16 plus a kit of $15.
The Art Journal Freestyle class is about learning to create in layers ... creating in a sequence that creates a great page ... for this class, you need to bring a few stamps, stencils, a couple of paints and some ephemera - this could be anything from book pages to pattern paper, left over die cut & stickers or magazine clippings.
Here is a sample of a few I have done ... I hope to create a video on my You Tube soon showing the rest of the pages I have created
Please ALWAYS ring and make sure you have been booked in and that you check Facebook on my page and the shops page to see what you need to bring for the class.
To create this page, I used Marshmallow cardstock as my base and then used Gel Medium through a stencil over the plain card. Once it is dry, it creates a cool resist so that when you add color, the pattern stays white! Cool stuff!
Before I started with the sprays, I did a little test to make sure the colors all
worked in well together and then started spraying! Starting at the top of the page,
add the first color, then the second one quickly and use a water spray to dilute
it a little and help it drip down the page. Tilt the paper as you need and dry in
between layers to get an awesome depth of color. I just kept on layering my
colors until I was happy with the coverage and the final color. So easy!
I started with a line using a Black Stabilo pencil then added some Molding Paste with a stencil. Once dry, I started layering my colors, watering down a little as I went and spreading them with a brush.
As it dried, I could see the different layers of color in the paper
I then added some splatters in all three colors
Once dry, I added stamping to create more layers and dimension
I added some mesh tape & old rub ons along my horizon line
Coloured the Imaginarium Designs Chipboard with a combinations of Green & Blue, added some wood veneers and string and added a tag under my photo
And finished the page off with a few Imaginarium chevrons
Here are a few detail images of my page.
I have filmed a video to show you how easy it is to create this page…
You can view it on the Lindys Stamp Gang YouTube Channel.
*Add water quickly after your spray – before it soaks in so that you can spread it around a little*Lindys Stamp Gang Sprays soak right into Imaginarium Chipboard because it’s porous, so dry it between coats to ensure you get the color that you are after.
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day.
I'm off to Tasmania in December to celebrate my Grandmothers 90th birthday - thought while I was there I'd teach a couple of classes ....
You can catch me at Image Plus on Monday 19th December

I started with a light swipe of gesso over my tag just to seal the paper, then made a water wash of each Magical color, added two colors over the gesso, flicked on 3-4 colors with a brush and then allowed to dry. The Imaginarium Designs Chipboard has also been lightly coated in gesso before being coated in color as well. A quick swipe of Light Molding Paste, a little stamping and some sweet embellishments.
I have filmed a video to showing how you can make this, you can watch it below on the Lindy's Stamp Gang YouTube Channel. (this is my first video - so go gentle on me)
Tip ... once your background color is on... dry before flicking on the next layers
just so they dont 'muddy' up.
Tip ... you may need to add a few layers of color to the gesso coated
chipboard to get some color intensity...
