Be yourself in journaling

Be yourself

Hello, Olga Siedlecka here. In my last post as a guest designer I would like to present you my another entry based on a mixed media journal and versatile products by Faber-Castell, which you can mix and match with flying colours.

1  

1. I started with covering the surface with a light coat of Gesso and watered Gelotos. Then I put a thick coat of Whippled Spackle using both a stencil and a spatula and let it dry.

2

2. I glued some collage scraps with Gel Medium and colored them with Art Grip Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils and bit of water. I also traced the dimentional elements. I think that a little color goes a long way.

3. I placed another stencil and covered the surface beneath with Gelotos in blue palette. Then I started stamping using PITT® Artist Pens with big brushes which are waterproof and perfectly matched to color sets.

4. Finally, I doodled some patterns on the whole using black PITT® Artist Pens and glued some embellisments with Gel Medium. And voila! The dimensional journal entry was ready.

I hope you feel a bit inspired. Have a nice day!

    Dear Jen, Our son is an astrophysicist. I will absolutely love making something like this for him. I am not nearly as talented as you are, so there will be a few (many) changes, but I know it will make him smile. Thank you. Dee

  • Tricia Ann on Be Strong Tag Using Texture Gems - With Lisa

    Lisa, your tag is awesome! I love, love, love the beautiful colors and textures you chose, as well as the way you put them together. I opened an email today from Faber-Castell about the Ustream Class on Wed., May 27, 2015. I watched the DIY All Occasion Party Banner and made a comment to be entered in the giveaway. The demonstrator (I couldn't find her name anywhere) said that if we comment on the blog we have a chance at winning the grand prize. I couldn't find a link to your blog anywhere on the Ustream page. I went to Faber-Castell website and couldn't find anywhere to write a comment. I went through the Ustream video several times to find out how to get to the page where I was to leave a comment. FINALLY, I discovered that Faber-Castell has a blog. I've looked throughout this blog and couldn't find a place to leave a comment about joining you for the Ustream class on May 27th. When I browsed through the site, the sections are not dated so I had to keep searching. At last I settled on writing to you here on your texture tag demo. Where should I leave a comment to register for the grand prize? Thank you!
