Making a statement with white space in an art journal page 

Hi friends today I share with you an art journal page that I created with the intent on keeping lots of white space on it. This is an extremely challenging thing for me to do as I am one who feels most comfortable with covering the entire page with paints, marks inks and more. I am using of course a couple StencilGirl stencils as well as some fun unique mark making with some of my favorite tools. So grab your coffee and let’s crest white space together. 

 This is how my page started out it was a page I cleaned my brush off on after one of my previous art journal pages. Since it already had plenty of paint I didn’t add any at this point as the goal is to keep white space. 

So I grabbed the following 2 stencils.  The fist one is by Jessica Sporn Designs 


And this one by Margaret Applin


I layer the 2 stencil first the leaves and then the heart over it on my page 


 I choose my color of paint I used a magenta and an orange mixed to get a nice red / pink color. 

 I then added a small red heart in the same color and with my liner pen and some black fluid acrylic paint drew some lines around my hearts 


Wrote the word love on the smaller heart and then used my left over paint to splatter some black dots around the page. 

I added a hint of pink from a Dylusions spray bottle by spritz in ha baby wipe and just wiping it on my page in strategic spots. (by that I mean where I wanted it lol). 

I took some orange paint and the bottoms of my sponge brush to add some dots 


And the last bit I decided to add some script across the hearts with the same stencil that he hearts were on that I used earlier. I first stenciled in white then added some magenta over it to make it stand out a little better 


I have found that how we challenging leaving white space is the pages actually get completed a lot faster 🙂 


Thanks for letting me share this with all of your and always your comment and likes are a blessing.  If you have the time, please leave me a comment I value them all. Have the most fabulous evening friends ❤️❤️❤️
