The Evolution of a Digital Art Journal Page

Today I wanted to share with you a quick peek into how I’ve been altering some of my traditional art journal pages digitally. I started with this journal page using some clip art, acrylic paint, stenciling, and stamps:

It’s not bad, but I wanted to take it a few steps further. I opened up ArtRage on my iPad and began by creating a layer of color and doodles using the various tools:

Next, I added another layer and imported a picture of my journal page. I then merged the two layers together, adding more paint and doodles over the blended layers.

I saved the image to my camera roll, then opened the image in Pixlr Express. I then chose a filter for the image.

I continue to add layers using the different filters, frames, and effects in Pixlr.

And here is the final result. It’s really a lot of experimentation and playing in the apps. I like mixing and building layer upon layer to achieve different looks. Have fun recreating your old art journal pages using ArtRage and Pixlr Express!!
