Hello! Chris here and today I would like to share with you a page from my art journal! I use my art journal to try out different techniques and to record inspirational quotes for myself!
To start this page I first applied gesso to my entire journal page.
I then stamped the “to catch your Dream” sentiment, the dream catcher and the feathers with Versamark, and then embossed with white embossing powder.
I then added lots of gelatos to color the background. (for reference I used yellow, metallic grey, metallic blueberry, iced pear, metallic melon, metallic mint, and metallic icing) I blended all the colors with a baby wipe. I kept adding and blending colors until I was satisfied with the background.
I then stamped the Dream Big sentiment using Dare 2B Artzy’s Totally Black Ink. I will tell you if I had to do this part over again I would stamp and emboss with black ink before I applied the gelatos, as gelatos are slippery to stamp on!! I then added my “hand” written quote.
I hope you enjoyed this project and are inspired to create something just for yourself!
