For this Wednesday’s mini art journal page I have a piece of Hamsa art. It is inspired by a new Artfoamie I got from ArtByMarlene: Hamsa Hand.

This is another great easy, quick journal page. It took me under 20 minutes and filled that creative need for the night.

Here is how I did it:

1. I started with a 4″ x 6″ (10.16cm x 15.24cm) piece of mixed media paper.

2. I had some gelli prints I had been making using craft paint and Dina Wakley’s new scribble sticks. I cut out a piece of deli paper with the gelli printing on it and using matte gel medium, I glued it to the page.

3. I dried the page with my Ranger Heat Tool.

4. I then took one of my custom mandala stencils and used the Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide thru it with the Tim Holtz
Blending tool.

5. I then put out a little of the Dylusions Vibrant Turquoise paint on my gelli plate and rolled it out, I stamped my Hamsa Artfoamie into it, then added more paint from the roller.

6. I then put the Hamsa Artfoamie on the paper and voila beautiful print.

7. Next, I dried it with the heat gun again. To make the teal stand out, I went back to my Distress Oxides and grabbed my Peacock Feathers Blue and edged the paper with the blending tool.

8. Then I went and dug out some of my Tim Holtz Small Talk quotes and picked “Live, Create, Tell The Story” and added that to the piece.

9. Last step I had to get my scribbles in so using my Pilot Black Multi Ball pen I added a border.

Now I have another piece of small art in my mini journal that will continue to inspire me.

I hope this piece will inspire you as well. I linked to some of the items I used in case you see something you want for your collection.

Thanks for stopping by, have a creative day!
