Texture at Art Journal Journey – Thank you!

I’m sharing my last page for the Texture challenge over at Art Journal Journey which I’ve been hosting this month, thank you so very much to everyone who joined in the fun!

I created this page to remember you all and to say thank you, I really appreciate all your kind comments and support throughout September and have thoroughly enjoyed visiting your blogs and seeing all your wonderful artwork (grin!).

I started by stamping the names of everyone who joined this challenge in wavy lines using an alphabet stamp set from Hampton Art and black Archival Ink.

Then I selected different colours of used baby wipes that I used to mop up inks and paints when creating other art journal pages. I tore them into pieces so I could stick them in between the waves of names using Liquitex matte gel medium. The colours selected are arranged in sequence like a rainbow – red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet and indigo. I love the texture that they added (grin!).

Next I added dots to the names using Uni Posca paint pens alternating the colours which were red, orange, yellow, light green, light blue, purple and pink. . I stamped “Art Journal Journey” and “Texture” along the bottom of the page with the same stamp set and ink. Then I stamped the “Thank you” wording on a piece of mixed media paper and coloured it completely in a rainbow pattern using the Uni Posca paint pens. I edged it with some black gems and stuck it to the page using double-sided tape which finished the page.

I had fun creating all the texture on my pages for this challenge and I hope you did too! Thank you all for your participation and lovely comments; you made it such a pleasure to host this challenge!

I’d like to give a special thank you to Bleubeard & Elizabeth, Yvonne and Erika for asking me to be a guest host and for all their support this month, thanks so much!

Tomorrow is a new month and that brings a new challenge at Art Journal Journey and I can’t wait to see what the new theme is and say hello to our new host – I hope to see you there!

  1. Your final page is amazing. I love how you used the baby wipes as texture. That was quite clever. I am SO sorry I have missed so many of your incredible texture pages this month. Seeing them all together makes them even more beautiful. And the way you created that last page with the names and dots shows how much time and effort you put into each and every page you created. Thank you ever so much for sharing these incredible texture pages with us this month, as well as the current page you created for us at Art Journal Journey, dear Jo.

  5. What a lovely thought to thank us for participating in your challenge. We thank you for giving us such great topics to work with. Plus it is a lovely page. I like the idea of the colour deriving fro the rainbow and the lines being waves across the page especially the yummy colours you have got from the use of babywipes.
    Thanks for a great month of challenges.
    Hugs, Neet xx
