Happy Saturday! Today I want to share with you an art journal page idea, using dew drops. I love the vintage, shabby grungy look, but dew drops can fit into all crafting styles from the most clean and simple to the most elaborate layering! So grab a cup of coffee or tea, your art journal and join in. Do your style and show us over on our Facebook Page.
Mixed media art journal
Vintage book pages and calendar pages
White dimensional paste
Mists – Shimmerz Sprayz
Chalk ink – Prima pink and green
Paper doll – Tim Holtz
Dew Drops – diamond and round
Distress Crayon – Tim Holtz
Begin playing! First applying paper to your page as you like, the add Gesso over the pages.
This “knocks back” the lettering if you have something bold – like the calendar page, in my case.
Dry thoroughly and let the fun begin! Next I added the chipboard doors…. And added gesso over them. At this point this could go lots of ways; elegant, shabby chic, grungy, vintage, etc.
I had fun spraying with blued, purples and ultra violet.
When you have gesso down, you can tilt and move the colors around until they are mixed as you like. There is no right or wrong in you are journal. Just experimentation and capturing your mood.
Next I added dimensional paste and stenciling.
