Dina Wakley-Inspired Splatter Art Journal Page + Faber-Castell Giveaway!

Dina Wakley-Inspired Splatter Art Journal Page I’ve been admiring all the bright colors inside Art Journaling for a long time. For the most part, my projects rely on deep browns, creams, shades of dark teal, and touches of pink. However, I challenged myself for this art journal page to think outside the browns box and create something with vivid colors and bright contrast. The end result is brilliant hues of green and teal that really make this art journal page pop. Dina Wakley’s stamps paired perfectly with the colorful and grungy splatters on the page, making this a winning combination of bright colors and grungy goodness.

 

Supplies:

Dina Wakley-Inspired Splatter Art Journal Page

Instructions:

Prime your altered book art journal by painting the entire page with gesso. Keep the gesso thin so that the text print can peek through.

Allow gesso to dry completely.

Place a color fizz tablet directly on the page, then drop warm water on it to begin the reaction. As the tablet begins to release pigment, rub it in an L-shape along the corner of the page. When enough pigment has released onto the page, remove the tablet. Drop a little more water onto the page, then blow from the corner so that the watercolor creates a splatter toward the rest of the page.

Dina Wakley-Inspired Splatter Art Journal Page

Tip: Dry the splatter with a heat gun to avoid the water soaking through the gesso and into the rest of the book.

Rub Distress Crayon in an L-shape along the same corner as your splatter. Use a blending tool to rub in the crayon so that the splatter begins in the teal color and fades to green.

Dina Wakley-Inspired Splatter Art Journal Page

Stamp the Create with Abandon stamp so that it overlaps with the splatter. Tip: You will need to use StazOn permanent ink for this image because other inkpads will smear on the waxy surface of the Distress Crayon.

Remove the top of the Dylusions ink spray and use the tube on the spritzer to splatter the page with Vibrant Turquoise ink spray.

Stamp the Lonely Girl image onto a separate piece of cardstock with StazOn Teal Blue ink. Trim and attach to the bottom corner of the art journal page.

    This looks really cool. Pinned the project to my art journaling page in Pinterest so that I can give it a try.

  7. Nancy says:

    My favorite way to incorporate color in mixed media is with spray inks. But the Color Fizz tablets look like fun, too!

  8. Renee Zarate says:

    Wow! Lonely girl is my favorite image, I adore FC-Gelatos, Color Fizzes would be fun to try. I often add the metallic gelatos to get a little shine and color that pops.

  9. Normajean Brevik says:

    I particularly like Distress Inks because they move and react like water colors but can be stamped and are very versatile.

  10. Nancy J Burdge says:

    I’ve never seen these Fizzes, what fun!

  11. Paulette Hummer says:

    My favorite way to incorporate color in my journal is with watercolor. Splatter, bubble wrap impression, etc. takes a blank white page into another dimension. I also like to use water soluble colored pencils.

  12. Jeanne says:

    Distress inks and stains. I like the subtle shades.

  13. Connie M says:

    I love the colors and the splatter pages are interesting.

  14. Helen says:

    I love using dylusion ink sprays – so cokol for adding background colour or spraying through stencils and around masks.

  15. Linda says:

    I really want to play with these pops of color… I love adding bright pops of colors to stand out in mostly neutral backgrounds

    Since your forcing me to choose a technique… I guess my favor would be finding very odd item to use by dipping in paint or ink and apply to page. For example a paper tube but swish it into odd shape. It’s fun because the bright color draws the eye.

  16. Angela D says:

    these would be great try. Acrylics are my medium of choice currently.

  17. For covering large areas quickly, I love spritzing water onto the surface and then swiping with a dye ink pad. These color fizzes are intriguing!

  18. Sandi Terry says:

    These look really great!! Pinned to my Art Journaling board!! https://www.pinterest.com/pin/10555380357570428/

  19. Angela Rueda says:

    Saved on Pinterest http://pin.it/FB-s_ug
    My favorite techniques are watercolors or the Gelli plates

  20. Sharon McDonagh says:

    Gelatos are my favorite way to add or enhance color. The new Color Fizz look like a lot of fun!i

  21. Michelle says:

    My favorite way of incorporating color depends on my mood! I love to have choices so I can reach for what inspires me: gelatos, markers, pencils, spray ink, graphite, paint….I’m a color addict :)

  22. karenladd says:

    Wow, I’ve never even heard of these Color Fizz products and I just pinned to Pinterest here:

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  23. MelodyJ says:

    I like crayon resist. This is where you using cryon and watercolor over it.

  24. Donna Kalinowsky says:

    It’s hard to pick a favorite because I use so many different products to add color to a project but I’ll say Inktense pencils as they are currently my favorite way to color in my stamped images.

  25. Cindy says:

    Oh, these color fizzes look like a wonderful way to play. I have used gelli plate prints to add color as well as color bursts and spray inks.

  26. Jen East says:

    I pinned the art journal page to my board at:
    https://www.pinterest.com/pin/502151427188407622/

  27. Susanne Griffith says:

    I am a color junkie! I love color! I use acrylics,spray inks, water color crayons, pencils ,ink pads. Would love to try Color Fizz!

  28. Valerie says:

    Great tutorial! Love this turquoise color and the techniques. I have just started to get into different inks and spatter to add color to my art pages. I pinned the picture of the stamp cut out to my board: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/518054763372185085/

    Thanks for the give-away!

  29. Kim Sweetman says:

    Love bold color! I frequently use acrylic paint. Most people talked about distress/dylusion sprays as fabulous but I found them totally disappointing! I didn’t realize they would change/reactivate with other media. I prefer Lindy’s Stamp Gang and Tumble Dye sprays. Both are brilliant and both permanent—water based cleanup but permanent on paper/canvas! They also can imitate watercolor and mix when wet just like distress etc. But they do not dissintegrate or change after dry when adding additional media – thank God!!! Nothing better for mixed media!!! Try them. My distress/dylusions are carefully hidden unless doing water piece only!!!

  30. Kim Sweetman says:

    PS: not most people but some people!! Thx!!

  31. Barbara says:

    I saved my favorite picture to Pinterest but forgot to get the link. I also posted to Facebook and tagged you. My favorite picture was the first one. What a wonderfully exciting technique to try!
