Mardi Gras Event | Unashamed Mixed Media Art Journal

Welcome to Joy Clair – Mardi Gras event! This is a special event featuring their stamp sets. And today, I have an art journal to share with you all.

There are many things I did in the past that make me feel ashamed of myself… But when you know the truth that God is gracious and kind enough to forgive us and reveal His love for us. I won’t be unashamed anymore, there will no more judgement in Christ Jesus!

On this mixed media art journal, I use the newly released Color by Faith Collection, Unashamed Stam Set. This is a great set that can be used for Bible Journaling, cards, tags, home decors, and any other projects.

I used this mixed medias technique to create the base background. I added another layers on it using the Crisscross ARTplorations Stencil, VersaFine Clair Verdant Ink, VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink Pad, and blending brush.

I stamped the streamers, chains and sentiment from the Unashamed Stamp Set with Versafine Nocturne Ink Pad and Tulip Red Ink Pad.

I stamped more on the page with some images from the Mardi Gras Stamp Set using VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink Pad.

Then I added some gold and white splatters using Gold metallic acrylic paint and white acrylic paint, water, and brush.

I stamped the makes, feathers, gems, streamers, and sticks from the Unashamed Stamp Set on Rinea Foil Papers (Pastel Pack and Sapphire/Gold) using Rinea Ghost Ink Pad and StazOn Jet Black Ink Pad.

The ones I stamped with Rinea Ghost Ink Pad, I let it dried for 10-15 minutes and then using baby wipe to wipe it off. The ones I stamped with StazOn Ink Pad, I let it dried completely. After that, I fussy cut them with micro-tips scissors.

I added all the foil pieces on the page with some Art Glitter Dries Clear Adhesive Glue. It is one of my favorite glue to use on mixed media page.

I am not usually create with bright colors, but I like how this page turned out.
