I created this art journal page as part of Creative Jumpstart 2019. This particular lesson was presented by Tania Ahmed, which I used as a jumping off point. I really enjoyed her approach and highly recommend that anyone interested in mixed media jump into Creative Jumpstart!

My main focal image was a gel print from my stash that I stamped over with the IO butterfly stamp. I so enjoyed Tania’s lesson and all of the layering involved. Thanks for visiting today!

 

 

 

 

 


Journal pages with bird tags

Just a quick post to show a two-page spread from my journal. I created this during my Dina Wakley class marathon last weekend when she came to Salem. It is not obvious from the photo, but the tags are in little pockets and can be pulled out. I used Dina’s acrylic paint, stencils, stamps and Ranger’s Tim Holtz tissue. Lots of fun!


Shell in your pocket

  • Stamps –
    • Shell and Starfish – Stampington & Company – Christine Adolph Series, “Shore Cliff Elements”
    • Sentiment – Darcie’s – “Beach Bums”
  • Heavy body Gesso – Ranger Dina Wakley
  • Gelatos
  • Sequins – Simon Says Stamp “Moonshine”
  • Ink spray – Hero Arts “Unicorn” and Tattered Angels “Rich Mocha”
  • Gelliplate
  • Stencil – Dyan Reaveley’s Dylusions “Triangles”
  • Tissue Paper
  • Round paper punches

As with most mixed-media pages, this little piece was made with a number of supplies over several days. The Mixed Media Mojo July Challenge is to create something with a Summertime theme and a “seashell twist.” The Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is Nautical/By the Sea. So I set to work on this page with these challenges in mnd. The circles were from Gelliplate prints. I pulled out two stamp sets that I’ve had for years for a beachy feel. I’ve also been watching Marta’s art journal and mixed media videos at Maremi SmallArt, which have been very inspirational. I built layers with gesso, tissue paper, Gelatos, ink sprays and stamping. Thanks for visiting today.
