Denise here. I am trying to get more into art journaling and thought I would share a step by step process of how I did this page here:
I will link the products as I go in case you would like to check them out!
First I used Tim Holtz Distress Stains and just scribbled all over the pages. I then spritzed with water.
I used a baby wipe to blend the stain around the pages
Using a coordinating color of Distress Stain, I went around the edges of the pages and repeated the process.
Taking a Prima Chalk Ink (Dark Rust) I inked the edges. Inking the edges helps to cover any 'white' areas that may be showing.
Cut out a circle. I used a sheet of Bo Bunny Autumn Song.
Now to work on my sun. I mixed some Molding Paste with 13 Arts yellow paint.
I traced the outline of the sun where I wanted it placed and then added the rays using Tim Holtz Rays Stencil.
Using Festive Berries and Rusty Hinge Distress Inks, I added some shading...or tried too...to the page.
Using a stencil from 13 arts and some Prima Texture Paste, I added my stars.
Mixed some 13 arts Gold paint with a little bit of water which was used to add some splashes of color. I also repeated that using white paint.
I grabbed some old chippie letters and covered them with Distress Stain as well. I dried these with a heat gun and then added some Tim Holtz Crackle glaze.
After the glazed dried I added my quote, outlined some of the rays with thin red pen and that's it!
What I like about art journaling, is there are no mistakes. Each step is a learning curve for me. Although it's not quite what I had pictured it would be, it has inspired me to keep going!
Hope you get creative today!
