How quickly time flies , its a first day of November !! We are almost at the end of 2014.
Let's begin this month with 'Art Journal Page- Soar'
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft has Mini Journal Boards which are perfect for painting, texturing, layring, misting, embellishing. And I love to do all that in my journal.
Let's see how I've created this page...
I applied Faber- Castell Design Memory Craft Gesso on the page, it is a matt opaque primer which allows us to create various color layers.
Next, I adhered text papers and Gauze at random places on surface with Faber- Castell Gel Medium. I applied Gel Medium through stencil as well. When Gel Medium dried it created semi -gloss texture and dimention.
I scribbled Snow Cone, Metalic Mint and Metalic Melon Double Scoop Gelatos on the page, spritzed water and just moved the colors with my finger. And magic happened!! Gel Medium resist watercolors, so we can see stenciled design with metalic watercolors created with Gelatos. Looks beautiful.
I stamped texture with texture stamps and Faber Castell Stamper's Big Brush pens - Deep Scarlet Red and Light Cobalt Turquoise. It is India Ink and when it dries it is waterproof.
Next layer is with Whipped Spackle and stencil. It is smooth fluffy texture paste with gives dimentional texture.
I told you, I love to create layers....this one is with stencil and Black Double Scoop Gelatos. It gave some more interest to the background.
At the corners of page, I applied Glass Bead Glitter Gel, it had fun glitter beads which shine and create texture too.
I wanted to adhere Hot air Baloons on my page, which I die cut with my sizzix die cutting machine. I colored them with watered down Metalic Melon Gelato. And then applied Gelato directly through stencil. It is easy way to create and color your own embellishments.
I adhered them on my journal page with Faber Castell Gel Medium.
Voila, my page is ready.
Hope you enjoyed the tutorial.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!! Happy Creating!!
