Just Print It: Episode Five - Art Journal

Happy Thursday! Its almost the weekend again! Today I am sharing the fifth and final episode of my Just Print It series. It seems like the time has just flown by and I can't believe 5 weeks have passed already!

For this week's project I created and art journal page using my original Whimsical Cut Apart Sheet. This printable has some really fun images that you can print and colour, or use as-is on your art journaling pages, scrapbooking, or cards. I selected the fun "antler fairy house" and paired it with some of my hand-lettered brush script.
Below is the FREE printable! To use this, follow these steps:
  1. Click on the image
  2. Right click on the larger image that appears
  3. Select "save image as" and save it on to your computer
  4. Print the image. I like to insert it into a Word document first and print from there.
If you have any troubles, please email me at and I will send you the file.
These sketches were inspired by my polymer clay fairy houses, which you can see by clicking on the link. The wings are a good size for adding on to the houses, similar to what I did with the antlers. You could also cut the antlers off the house and use them alone too! Many possibilities!
The process of this page is explained in the video and I think watching that would be easier than me trying to type out the process. Then you can also see how much layering I do to get to this point. Remember, no two pages will ever look the same! I suggest just playing with some products you love and seeing what happens!
I really like the dimension and texture created with the UTEE and texture paste.
I feel like the quote, "different doesn't mean wrong", really suits this unusual little house!
