Secret Ingredient

We have a secret ingredient for the March ARTjournal challenge, and that would be – BLANK WORD STRIPS.

This is the challenge: To create a page using them in any way you’d like. How about a string of them to share your favorite quote, or maybe a list of some sort? Maybe one single word comes to mind, describing how you feel today? Our creative team has put together some example pages for inspiration.

This travel themed page from Joanne is beautiful, isn’t it? The word wanderlust comes to mind.

Products used in this page include: Blendable Layers No.36, Adventuring Travel Scrapbook Embellishment Pack, Adventuring Solids Paper Pack, Bloom in Paris Brushes and Stamps, Cloudscapes No. 01 Paper Pack, Page Fades No.02, Dreamy Paper Pack No. 01, and of course those blank word strips placed nicely below to hold the perfect quote.

The focus of Diane’s page is on this incredibly adorable mixed media painting of a bunny, which she created herself. This is such a nice example of ARTjournaling and the word strips fit in perfectly with the entire page.

Products used by Diane include: Blendable Layers No. 58, Artsy Spots Brushes, Stamps and Layers No. 05, Painted Plaid Paper Pack No. 02 and of course the secret ingredient, blank word strips.

Our next example is from Carmel. She has incorporated some pretty blending with some very wise words.

Along with the freebie, this page includes: About the Edge Paper Pack No. 01, Blendable Layers No. 01, Blendable Layers No. 02, Art Class Frames No. 05, Revealing Overlays No. 01, Artsy Spots Brushes, Stamps and Layers No. 05, and From My Bookshelf Blendables No. 01.

I was thinking about how spring is around the corner and then my thoughts turned to the beautiful sounds of our neighborhood birds. One thing led to another, and this was the end result.

Products used are: ARToptions Neutrals Paper Pack No. 03 , Letter Box Brushes and Stamps No. 08, Artsy Inked Insects Brushes and Stamps No. 01, Watery Butterflies No. 01, Watery Foliage No. 05, Edge Overlays No. 09, Watery Blumes No. 09, Blendable Layers No. 29, Blendable Layers No. 28, CU Vintage Birds Clip Art No. 01, CU Botanicals Clip Art No. 04 and Readymade Layers: Vintage Borders No. 02.
