You Are so Loved Art Journal Page


Hey Quietfire Fans! With Valentine's Day right around the corner and I thought that I'd share a love themed art journal page with you on the blog. My You Are so Loved Art Journal Page features a variety of Quietfire Design Stamps. You'll want to grab a cup of your favourite winter beverage as you learn how to recreate my art journal page at home.

To start, paint two pages in your art journal page with White paint. Once the paint has dried, randomly paint streaks in the middle of the pages using Peony Blush and Cherry Pie Paint. 


Once the paint in the middle has dried, place the Dotty Stencil randomly on the middle of your pages and spritz Post Box Red Dylusions Ink Spray overtop, stencil as many times as desired. Place the Heart Stencil randomly on the middle of your pages and spritz Black Marble Dylusions Ink Spray overtop, stencil as many times as desired. Place the Stitches Stencil randomly on the middle of your pages and spritz Rose Quartz Dylusions Ink Spray overtop, stencil as many times as desired. Once the ink spray has dried, paint white gesso slightly overtop of the pink areas. After the white gesso has dried, apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the Crackle Background Stamp and Grid Background Stamp and randomly stamp in the pink painted areas.


Die cut one 3 1/2" Stitched Heart and two 3" Stitched Heart out of watercolour cardstock. Die cut eight small hearts out of watercolour cardstock using the Entwined Hearts. You'll also need a scrap piece of watercolour cardstock. On the three stitched hearts and scrap piece of watercolour paper, spritz them with water and then spritz with Rose Quartz, Cherry Pie and Postbox Red Dylusions Ink Spray. Dry the hearts and scrap piece of watercolour paper with a heat tool. Spritz the small hearts using Postbox Red, Cherry Pie and Rose Quartz Dylusions Ink Spray. Set the hearts aside to dry. Apply Emboss It Ink to the Twiggy Heart Wreath stamp and stamp onto the coloured scrap piece of watercolour cardstock. Sprinkle Midnight Black Embossing Powder overtop of the image. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool. Fussy cut the heart out. Ink the edges of the stitched hearts and fussy cut heart.


On a second piece of watercolour cardstock, spritz Cherry Pie, Rose Quartz and Postbox Red Dylusions Ink Spray. Dry the piece of watercolour cardstock with a heat tool. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the "You Are so Loved" sentiment and stamp onto the coloured piece of cardstock. Fussy cut the words out.


Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the Grid Background and randomly stamp onto the three stitched hearts. Re-ink the stamp as desired. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the Crackle Background and randomly stamp onto the three stitched hearts. Re-ink the stamp as desired. 


Adhere the fussy cut heart to the 3 1/2" stitched heart. Adhere the 3 1/2" stitched heart to the middle of the page. Adhere one of the 3" stitched hearts to the left of the 3 1/2" stitched heart and adhere the other 3" stitched heart to the right of the 3 1/2" stitched heart. Adhere the "You Are so Loved" sentiment to the right of the right hand side stitched heart. To the right of the sentiment, adhere three small hearts. To the left of the small left hand side heart, adhere five small hearts.


 Rub Worn Lipstick Distress Crayon along the edges of the art journal page. To finish off the art journal page, splatter Black Marble Dylusions Ink Spray randomly overtop of the art journal page.
