Art Journal Page with Jen Matott
Hi creative friends! I am so very excited to see the new products that Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® has released. One of them is full of my artwork! In fact, I designed the art and instruction booklet photos/ write up for this kit!
It is the second one that I've designed for them and I'm thrilled with how it looks! WOW! I can't wait for you to be able to get your hands on this kit. In the process, I had to cut a couple pages out due to space and materials that were going to be included. So, I wanted to share one of those pages that didn't make the cut with you!
For this page, I started with a primed canvas page (it was already primed but you could use our Textural Accents Gesso to prime a natural canvas page) and stamped the radial shape using the Stamper's Big Brush Pen in black.
I used the Gelatos® Colors in Banana (from the 50's Diner set), Bubble Gum, Mango, Margarita and Snow Cone (from the Tropical set) mixed with some Textural Accents Gel Medium in a paint palette. I painted some of the mixture over the stamped images. The Gel Medium gives the color translucency while also giving it a bit of texture.
I added Textural Accents Whipped Spackle through the same dotted drywall tape for some white textured dots on the page.
Finally, I painted the Textural Accents Chalkboard Paint over a shipping tag and allowed it to dry (it dries super fast!). Once dry, I drew a banner and chalkboard font message with a PITT® Pastel Pencil in white. The chalky pastel pencil is perfect on the chalkboard paint!
Because it was going on a page that might rub against another page, I added a thin coat of Textural Accent Glaze over the entire tag. It gives it a shiny finish. If you wanted a matte finish, the Gel Medium might have been a different option.
I really liked this page and ended up hanging it in my art room! The Textural Accents mediums are awesome!
