Art Journal Page - Nebula

Here is an art journal page that does not have a video, but not for my lack of trying. I created this page and then re-created it only to have both attempts fail due to technical difficulties. I figured instead of trying to film a 3rd video, I would just share it on here.

 First Attempt
 Second Attempt
All the detail shots below are taken from the first attempted page.

Here are photos of the supplies I used:
 I used my fave Dina Wakley Media paintbrushes. They have a thick bristle that I love. I added a small bit of Tim Holtz Tissue Paper in the background, although you can hardly see it in the end. I also used some stamps hand-carved out of an eraser. All paint colors are listed two photos below.
 For the tag, I used a stencil like an embossing folder to get some texture on my tag. I also added my journaling with a typewriter.
Journaling in pen was done with a FudeBall pen. It draws a fabulous thick line that writes on top of acrylic paint beautifully.
I also added washi around the edges of the tag so it stood out from the background.
The paint used are:
 Liquitex Basics in Mars Black, Titanium White & Bright Aqua Green.
Golden Heavy Body in Crimson Red, Turquois (phthalo) & Fluorescent Magenta.
Golden Fluids in Hansa Yellow Medium & Quinacridone Nickle Azo Gold.

Our Mixed Media Moods "Trust"

We are back, baby! DeeDee and I took a little break but we are back with our monthly collab "Our Mixed Media Moods.

So without further ado....

We are using transparent layers, transparency, fabric, stitching, text, vintage book text, wood, fibers, vintage sewing patterns, tissue paper, machine sewing, encaustic, weaving, scribbles and mark making, browns, tans, whites, creams, vintage colors

For my project I used a lot of elements from the board. I started with using the color scheme. I also used transparent layers and book text.

I used some resin papers and machine sewing. I even tried hand stitching. I stitched my chipboard word with white embroidery thread. I also tried some French knots under my main cluster. 

I used the "trust" chipboard piece as my wood element because it looked a …

"Create Joy" || Mini Junk Journal

I have the first page in my mini junk journal to share today!

It is on ledger paper which I made sure to cover with clear gesso so the paper would hold up. it is a very Dina Wakley-esque page, with a splot of Dylusions Ink and some magenta paint. It came together very quickly, which is exactly what I wanted for this 'art everyday' venture.

To see exactly how I made it, you can watch the process video at the end of this post. There is also a complete supply list with links to everything I used on this page.
