Mandala Love – Art Journal Page

Good Morning all! Helen here with a little art journal spread for you today using a variety of Mandala and stencil shapes! Mandala love!!!

Finished art journal spread using mandal centers colored black onto gell press background paper, cut out into circles and added to black art journal, with image and sentiment

The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.

To start off my art journal, I first had to make some background pages! I did this using my Gell Press plate, some white acrylic paint, and some Color Sparkx!

I first added a thin layer of white acrylic paint directly onto my Gel Press plate. I then added some spots of the Orchid ColorSparkx from TCW9055 ColorSparx® Berry Punch  and the Cerulean Blue and Chartreuse ColorSparkx from the TCW9057 ColorSparx® Poolside.

Using a gell press plate, apply white acylic paint over and sprinkle with ColorSparkx. Smoosh around with brayer.

I then used a brayer and smooshed these around!! Love this effect!

Once this was dry, I used all the stencils listed here to make some circle shapes. I traced them using a Micron black pen and colored them in.

After having colored them, I cut them out into circles. I then used TCW9907 Clear Gesso  and applied a thin layer to my black art journal page using a brush. I splattered some White ink over my page next using the tube in my ink bottle. I adhered the cut out circles to my page using TCW9011  Matte Gel Medium  .

Once all this was dry, I doodles in some of my circles using a white pen, and added some shading around the circles with a Cobalt Blue and Black PITT pen.  I added my little guy, with some washi tape and a sentiment! Voila.. done!
