Create Your Own Art Journal

 

ArtJournal1

Let’s talk mixed media. The Vicki Boutin collection is chock full of interesting artsy elements including stamps, stencils, junque journal pages and glaze mediums. I combined all of these (and more) to create this art journal page. It was fun to experiment with color and texture.

After creating the background with acrylic paint, I used permanent black solvent ink and the beautiful hibiscus stamp to create this border along the left side of the page. I also wrapped the left edge with coordinating gold hibiscus washi tape from the collection

My favorite part of the page is this honeycomb effect that was created with modeling paste and the Mixed Media Stencil Set. A layer of the iridescent glaze was brushed on top to give it a bit of sparkle.
