Hi lovely crafty friends, today I have something fun for you, this art journal page is made for the great Crafty Sisters YouTube hop with amazing sponsors and lots of prizes to win, I will tell you more at the end of this post.

I made another art journal page for my mini album with a fun and easy to do watercolour technique and I show you a way to add some fun texture. Here’s another video where I show a watercolour technique with the Distress Oxide ink, you can watch it here. Be sure to watch today’s video to see all techniques in action. And from there you can go to all videos from the YouTube hop.
I started creating my background on Craft Perfect – Watercolour Card ( SBC | TNCUK | TNC) and I used Distress Oxides Ink Pads – Tumbled Glass ( SBC | CRF | CST ) Peacock Feathers ( SBC | CST | CRF ) Salty Ocean ( SBC | CRF )
& Shaded Lilac ( SBC | CST | CRF)
I used Nuvo Brushes ( SBC | CST | TNCUK | TNC ) to create a watercolour background, this is a great set with 12 brushes pointy and flat ones, so you can use them for lots of projects and different techniques. I used quite some water to let the colours move by themselves. It’s real pretty to watch the colour move around in a little puddle of water. Have a piece of kitchen paper and a bowl of water close so you can add water and blot if needed.
I used one of my favorite stamps sets the Rubber Rubber Dance Textured Flowers ( RBB) and fussy cut the flowers. I stamped the flowers with Tsukineko – VersaFine Clair Ink Morning Mist ( SBC | CST ) for a soft look as this page is for a summer hop.
I use the Rubber Dance Mix A Sentiment ( RBB ) another great stamp with lots of words to mix and match. I stamped it with VersaFine Clair Ink Nocturne (SBC | CST ) to add some black for contrast.
In the background I used four colours embossing powder matching the colour Distress Oxide ink. I used Nuvo – Embossing Powder – Cool Jade ( SBC | CRF | CST )
