Hello TCW friends!
A sweet mixed media art journal page today, that just came together… I had a lot of fun with this one!
– The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own –
The Crafter’s Workshop products used within this page
- TCW208 – Branches

- TCW9060 – ColorSparx – Desert Ranch set – Crimson

Of course, as usual, If you enjoy seeing a page come together quickly, you can just go ahead and watch the process video below. Captions within the video will tell you what products I have used along the way.
…here is a step-by-step so you can see how the page came together…
1 – I started in an old page in my journal. I had tried a few practise sprays through stencils on this page and decided to use this as a jump off point.
2 – I begin with TCW208 – Branches and spray a variety of blue and grey acrylic sprays over it.
3 – Next, I spray through TCW903 – Boxwood Print twice with Ironlak Sugar spray paint in pink.
4 – I spray again through TCW208 – Branches onto the right side of the page with Black acrylic spray.
6 – Add some splats with a juiced up Posca pen in fuchsia.
7 – I begin to look for something within the page… I sketch out some ideas, eventually deciding on an owl using the 2 Boxwood prints for eyes.
8 – With TCW9004 – Light & Fluffy modelling paste, I colour the paste with ColorSparx colors from two different sets: TCW9055 – ColorSparx – Berry Punch & TCW9060 – ColorSparx – Desert Ranch. I apply this thickly through TCW903 – Boxwood Print to create some dimension within the eye. I let everything thoroughly dry
9 – I build up the illustration using watercolors, pencils and acrylic paints until I am happy with it.
10 – Finally I add some flourescent yellow gel pen lettering along with a moon and some splats over the left side of the page to invoke a night sky.
Until next time… have fun!
