Something Wicked Art Journal Page


Hey Quietfire Fans! I'm thrilled to be back on the blog today sharing with you my Something Wicked Art Journal Page which features a variety of Quietfire Stamps. Grab a cup of your favourite fall beverage and learn how to recreate my art journal page at home. 

To start, choose a page in your art journal. Rip out a couple of dictionary pages from a dictionary. Randomly tear them up. Apply Matte medium to the art journal page and adhere the ripped up dictionary pages to the page. Apply a coat of matte medium over top of the dictionary pages. If needed, dry with a heat tool.



Cut three pieces of cheesecloth in varying sizes. Adhere one piece of cheesecloth in the top left corner using matte medium. Adhere the second piece of cheesecloth in the bottom right hand corner using matte medium. Adhere the third piece of cheesecloth to the middle of the page. Let the matte medium dry. With the medium dry, place the bricked stencil in the top left corner around where the cheesecloth is. Using your platte knife, put Texture Paste Opaque Matte through the stencil. Repeat this twice more where the other cheesecloth is. Place the bricked stencil once more on the left hand side of the page as desired.  Using your platte knife, put Texture Paste Opaque Matte through the stencil. Repeat this one more time but this time on the top right side of the page.


Once the texture paste has dried, apply a coat of white gesso to the entire page.


Sprinkle Black Forest Black (Lindy's Stamp Gang), Cuckoo Clock Cardinal (Lindy's Stamp Gang) and Orange (Magenta Nuance) powders in the bottom right corner, top left corner and the middle part of the page where the cheese cloth is. With the powder down, spritz with water. Set the page aside so that it can dry. 


Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the Crackle Background stamp and randomly stamp onto your art journal page as desired. Reapply ink as many times as needed. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the Dotted Harlequin Background stamp and randomly stamp onto your art journal page as desired. Reapply ink as many times as needed. Using a Black Soot Distress Crayon, rub it along the edges of your page with your finger.


Die cut a 3 1/4" stitched circle out of white cardstock. Place the Harlequin stencil overtop of the circle. Use a blending tool with foam to blend Carved Pumpkin Distress Ink through the stencil. Apply Emboss It Ink to the Something Wicked stamp and stamp onto the circle. Sprinkle Midnight Black Embossing Powder overtop of the sentiment. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool. Distress the edges of the circle. Ink the edges of the circle using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


Die cut a creepy tree out of black cardstock.


Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the Boo stamp from the Something Wicked 2018 Stamp set. Stamp the boo sentiment onto a piece of white cardstock. Fussy cut the sentiment out. Ink the edges of the sentiment using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


Apply Emboss It Ink to the cat stamp from the Something Wicked 2018 stamp set. Stamp onto a piece of white cardstock. Sprinkle Midnight Black embossing powder over top of the cat. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool. Fussy cut the cat out. Ink the edges of the cat using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


Apply Emboss It Ink to the bat stamp from the Something Wicked 2018 stamp set. Stamp onto a piece of white cardstock. Repeat the previous step ten more times. Sprinkle Midnight Black embossing powder over top of the bats. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool. Fussy cut all the bats out. Ink the edges of all the bats using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


Foam square the creepy tree 1 1/4" from the right and 4 1/4" from the bottom of the page. Foam square the Something Wicked circle slightly to the left of the tree. The branches will hang over top of the circle. Adhere three of the bats around the Something Wicked sentiment.


In the bottom right hand corner of the page, foam square the boo sentiment and the cat to the right of the Boo. Adhere three bats around the Boo.


In the top left hand corner of the page, adhere the last five bats.


To finish off the art journal page, paint on Soft Gloss Gel in the top left corner, bottom right corner and in the middle where the cheesecloth is. Sprinkle Micro Beads in Black over top of the gel. Set your page aside to allow for the gel to dry.

  1. This really DOES make it look like something wicked is coming!

    I know the quote is from Shakespeare, but I associate it with Ray Bradbury’s book of the same title, which I’ve read and reread many times — although, I have to admit the first time I read it, probably around 6th grade, it scared the pants off me! Great interpretation a such a classic! Suzanne sure knows how to pick her quotes!
