An art journal page with Mou

Hi everyone, Mou here today with an art journal page.

Summer is a time for going camping or RV-ing for many. My page is inspired by a camping staple: a lantern.

On this project, I used:

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Textural Accents & Tools: Gesso, Gel Medium

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos® Colors: Buttercream (YELLOW set), Green Tea, Lime (GREEN set), Iced Coffee, Black Cherry (STEAMPUNK set)

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stamper's Big Brush pen: WARM GREY IV (NEUTRAL set), SCARLET RED (RED set)

Others: Sizzix Die Rustic Lantern; die-cutting system; art journal, old book paper, patterned paper 

And here are the steps.

With Gel Medium, attach some old book papers to your journal page. Attach a patterned paper block at the center. Color the page with Gelatos colors. Ink up stamp with Warm Grey Stamper's Big Brush pen and stamp around the page. Add some gesso on parts of the page and blend it in.

Layer the diecut lantern on the page with Gel Medium. Color the lantern with Scarlet Red Stamper's Big Brush pen and add shadowing with Black Cherry Gelatos color and highlights with Gesso. Add shadowing around the lantern using Warm Grey Stamper's Big Brush pen.

Cut text out of old book paper and attach it to the lantern. Draw a frame around it with pencil to finish.

Hope you enjoyed today's post and have fun creating with all the fun Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft products this summer!

I can't believe I didn't comment on this one Mou. I love old lanterns. This is so fun... brings back good memories for me! And you know what - we still have old lanterns hanging on the porch of our 1855 remodeled house and in our cowboy kitchen here at the ranch. They look just like yours! So fun. I sent this to my daughter to see to - great creation!! j.
