Hey Everyone!! It's What's Up Wednesday and I have created a new art journal layout in my small Dylusions Art Journal. I really do love these journals, especially with the Dylusion products. The Dylusions Paints work onto the paper beautifully. I started with the white Dylusions paint and a baby wipe, just spreading on a thin coat of the paint over the entire paper surface. Then I stuck some scraps of tissue paper down to the paint. You can use any patterned paper to do this collage technique to create an interesting background.
I put down more color, this time with some gelatos. I added water to create a dripping effect. You can use many mediums for this effect, including the Dylusions paints. I added some areas of color with the paints in pink, green and white. I added some of the Star Shine die cuts to create even more texture. I have used Liquitex Gel Medium to stick down the paper bits added. I used a couple of stencils with both paint and texture paste to create even more texture and detail to the project. There are lots of stencils in the Pink Camera shop for art journaling.
This was a super fun and easy project that allowed me to relieve some stress and get my hands messy with paints and other media.
You can never have too much paint, mediums, and stencils in your craft room!!
Hope you get to have some fun with some mixed media soon!! Stay tuned on my Youtube channel for the video with this project. I likely won't have it up for a couple of days. The end of June is the busiest time of year for teachers :) Have a wonderful day!!
