We started this journey last Monday and encouraged readers to join the designers every week for a month to create their own art journals. I hope you have your journal and inspiration piece picked out.
Last week, I showed you how I prepped my pages with some Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gel Medium and papers. This week, I'm building the bases of all my pages with more of our Textural Accents to create an additional layer on the pages.
Here, I'm using Gel Medium through one of our new Mixed Media Stencils. I will be adding more color and using it as a resist in next week's post.
The Gel Medium will be milky until fully dry and then it turns clear! It's like magic! It stays somewhat textured and raised.
I also used the Gel Medium for adhering a Mixed Media Stencil onto the page itself. I just adhered it down and coated over it to ensure good, even coverage.
Another page in which I 'm adding more Gel Medium to adhere papers. I used Chalk Board Paint over it to create a center of interest to my journal page.
Using one of the Mixed Media Stencils, I created a scribbled frame using a PITT Pastel Pencil in white.
Some Gelatos® colors in the Pastel set were added and smudged. I also dripped some wet Gelatos® Double Scoop® Color - Gold Champagne down the top of the page. Once dry, it gives a beautiful shimmer to the page.
Stampendous was so very generous and sent us loads of stamp sets! My favorites were the ones below from NK Studio called Kaffee Klatsch and Wired. I adored the textures and shapes for my page here.
I inked up the stamp with a Stamper's Big Brush pen in Black and stamped some of the smaller doily prints and the barbed circle. Once dry, the ink is permanent as it is India Ink!
That's it for this week's progress on my journal pages. I hope you will continue on with us in your own journal and create bases for the pages. Join me next week as I layer more and add more embellishment to my journal pages!
