art journal rain

It’s time for a new art journal layout! This time I have created a very colorful rainy day…

I have created my background by using a brayer and my distress paints. I did lots of stamping and stenciling on top to add more texture and interest while trying to keep everything quite subtle.

Aren’t those boots just lovely?! All those colors just make my day even if it is actually raining outside!

For my raindrops I did a cool technique with my nuvo glitter drops. Love how they add just enough sparkle on my pages!

As always I used my go to techniques of shading and highlighting that I love so much!

And that final touch of hanging the raindrops from the clouds with those faux stitched lines add such a whimsical touch to my layout.

  16. Hi Vicky
    I’m a subscriber to your You Tube channel & haven’t commented before but I had to come and say how much I love your creations and especially this Rainy Day page today.
    Your imagination is awesome and you inspire me so much. I wish I had half of your talent.
    Best wishes Linda (from a rainy South Wales, UK. )

  17. This is so lovely! I am curious, I can never smudge markers to shade like you do with your fingers; the waterproof ones I’ve used dry immediately. Do these Faber-Castell markers have a longer dry time or something? i would LOVE to be able to blend and shade as you do. Thank you!
