Many artists speak about the doodling they constantly work at. After watching a large range of Youtube doodlers, I added my own piece. I used Paper Artsy doodle type flower stamps and various inks- Distress ink for the background and Faber Castell Big brushes for outlines.
This page turned out more like background paper without a focal point. I stamped the Paper Artsy lovebird stamp all over the page and it created a lovely paper background. I liked it as it is and didn’t add anything more other than a sentiment.
Such cute birds! These are Paper Artsy bird stamps and flower shapes turned into birds. A whimsical, cute outcome based on acrylic paints, this page turned out quite nicely. It should make you smile anyway.
This page was first covered with magazine collage pieces and matte medium. Covered in white gesso and painted with Distress inks. I added Tim Holtz coffee theme stamps. I used Faber Castell Big brushes for coloring and outlines.
Somehow the sea theme often comes up after creating backgrounds in blues. This piece has many layers including shimmery Stickles paints. The die cuts are Heartfelt Creations. I used random stencils and paints to cover a stippled gesso on paper background.
Work and coffee themes include any feature and coffee mugs or pots. This page used Tim Holtz coffee and pencils stamps on a background of various paints. I always use a gel medium over my pages as this allows for shadowing with Indian ink afterwards.
This page is being entered in the Simon Says Stamp challenge for backgrounds. I used some pieces of Jane Davenport collage tissue covered in gesso. I added Ranger Distress Inks blended to color the page. I added a gel medium to enable Big Brush faber Castell outlining later. I stamped with Paper Artsy flower stamps and restamped and fussy cut the pieces.
This owl themed page is called “The Night Watch”. I used acrylic paints for vibrant colors and texture. The owl is a die cut which I pasted onto the paper. Faber Castell Big brush markers were used to outline the embellishments.

I loved using these Tim Holtz stamps of the books and a globe. I used a scrapbook paper background and added elements and inks. The colors worked out well and I added some big brush marker paints to outline the embellishments.
Wine themed art journal pages are very special as the natural colors of fruit and field lend themselves to an atmospheric setting. This page used paper from Heartfelt Creations - paper no longer available from them.
”Colors to inspire you
Chosen from a rainbow
And perfectly blended into every petal”- Lucille🌸
Blended with Ranger Distress inks. Flowers are hand drawn, pieced and colored. Faber Castell big brush blends added to the edges.
“From France it spread its shape and line
And thrilled the world with styled design”
This was a page with Dylusions ink, Tattered Lace lady dies and Stampin up lace paper. Most of my work for art journaling is sealed with Mod Podge.
In the garden:
”Focus - in that sea of green
Not just on life
But in between “ Lucille🌺
This piece has many colors created in inks. Die cuts of the garden are Spellbinders. Little sayings are Tim Holtz stickers.

This journal page, based on black gesso has colorful house diecuts and cat punch shapes from Stampin Up. Cats are colored with alcohol inks.
🌺Wishes and thoughts and dreams we share
Are not mere castles in the air🌺- Lucille
Enjoy this page. Made with Tattered Lace castle die ands a variety of shape dies.
Sewing, machine embroidery, paper-craft, and stamping are my hobbies. At the moment die-cutting paper craft is my favorite, and I am sharing my projects with you on this website.
