Hello hello hello everyone… I hope you all have been having an amazing new year!
It is a journey to learn and to grow. It is a journey where we can find beauty in chaos of every day life we go through. Believe me, my friend, you can do it!
Today, I have an art journal page and a tutorial to share with you. Head over to the STAMPlorations Blog to read the full tutorial post and pictures.
So… I started…with creating the base background. Using a brayer, I added the acrylic paints (purple and teal) and mixed media metallic art screen ink (silver and gold). I dried each time I added layer of color with craft heater. And then, using my finger I added the white gesso to add extra texture on the page and to mute some of the colors. I dried it again with craft heater.
I mixed the texture paste and fine glitter to create glitter paste. I added it on the page using the palette knife and Rosegarden ARTplorations Stencil. I dried the roses with craft heater. But be careful when you dry the texture paste, cannot be over heated, it will bubbly.
I scribble the Distress Crayons on the flowers and then using the water brush I blended the colors. If you don’t have water brush, you simply dib your finger in the water and gently rub on the pigment. It works, too. After all colors blended well on the roses, I dried them again with the craft heater.
I added some paint splatters all over the page with the Marabu Art Spray.And then dried the paint with craft heater.
I stamped the images from the Mixed Media Elements 5×7 Stamp Set around the page borders using the VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink Pad. Be careful not to touch the stamped image becuase the pigment ink takes time to dry. I speed up the ink drying with craft heater so I can continue to stamp.
Next, I stamped the sentiment using the Beauty In Chaos – Says It Big Series Stamp and VersaFine Clair Charming Pink Ink Pad. And I dried it with craft heater.
Using the Shutters ARTplorations Stencil and a make up sponge, I added the blue mixed media metallic art screen ink on the page. Dried them again with craft heater.
Next step is stamping the arrows from the Mixed Media Grunge 5×7 Stamp Set around the sentiment with VersaFine Clair Green Oasis Ink Pad. And then I dried it with craft heater.
To make the sentiment quote pop up, I traced the outline of the letters with Sakura Micron Pen. This is my favorite pen to write on mixed media page. It has india permanent ink.
I added more paint splatters on the page with white acrylic paint and fan paint brush. I dried the whole page one more time with craft heater. And the art journal page is done. I hope you enjoy this post today. For more inspirations, visit the STAMPlorations Blog.
