Hey there everyone, Farrel here today to give a quick tutorial on one of my art journal creations. I’m not sure about you but I find sometimes I experiment in my art journal with different mediums and techniques but don’t actually do anything with that creation, instead I move onto a new page. So I thought why not go back and find these pages and try and complete them. And this is what I came up with for today.
So my art journal pages had a mixture of Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical Shakers which have been on there for about 12 months!! So I decided to add a border to break up the colour, for this I painted TCW9002 Black Gesso and dried with my heat tool.
Next I sprayed Dylusions Spray Black Marble through TCW662s Tile Mania. I didn’t want the whole area covered so I focused on the center of the pages. I used my heat tool to dry.
I wanted to add some stamping to my pages so I used Carabelle Studio – Dutch Tulips stamp set and Versamark. Then heat embossed with white embossing powder. Then coloured the tulips using some Dylusions sprays and a paint brush.
I felt that the white embossing powder was a little bold so I toned it down using a grey toned alcohol marker. I also stamped some butterflies from the 49 and Market stamp set – Butterflies Are Free and some black embossing powder.
To finish the page I stamped Darkroom Door’s – Being Creative stamp onto some white cardstock and cut the quote into pieces. I glued this strips to the page and used a black paint pen to add a border around each piece.
I hope this has inspired you to finished those art journal pages with some TCW products and I look forward to sharing my next project with you soon.
