After a week’s break I am back to blogging. I had an amazing time in Phoenix while visiting Creativation 2018. It’s not only the products that you get to see first, or the demos and the wonderful companies! It’s mostly the people! So great to hug old friends and make new ones… totally worth the endless traveling.
Today I am sharing an art journal! A lovely flower arrangement with butterflies using lot’s of mixed media techniques. I worked on my Dylusions art journal.
I did all the coloring with distress oxide inks with lot’s of different techniques to apply the color. Including blending tools, blending brushes and the infamous “smoosh the ink of your table” technique! Lot’s of fun and dirty fingers!
When I make my art journals I can easily spend most of my time on the background rather than the focal points. I love building layers upon layers, using many techniques and playing with different products such as stencils and the new distress resist spray.
The shine and texture that you see in the photo below is the awesome result by spraying a couple of times with the new resist spray. So quick and easy to do and with great impact on your project.
