Hello, Olga Siedlecka here. Do you love art journaling? I do love and every once in the while I have to transcribe my emotions onto papier. Since my last art journal burst at the seams I decided to try out the Faber-Castell one. It is dedicated to all media and I came to the grips with four out of the eight mentioned techniques: texturing, painting, collage and embellishing.
1. To prepare the background I applied a thick coat of Whippled Spackle and press a few doilies on it to get unique patterns.
2. After drying I obtained a nice surface to follow with watered Gelatos®. These journal pages can really stand layers of drippings and are perfect for watercoloring as well.
3. Then came time for collage with Gel Medium. I also used PITT® Pastel Pencils to tint some areas and PITT® Artist Pens to stand out some details.
4. Finally I glued some embellishments and sprinkled black dots with Chalkboard Paint. The surface held perfectly everything in place.
With my next entry I’m going to check out the rest of techniques: doodling, misting, layering and stamping. I hope you feel a bit inspired. Have a nice day!
