Welcome to another art journal with alcohol inks, foiling and stamping …and many more fun mixed media techniques!
I am making the most out of the Tim Holtz – Theories ( SBC | SSS ) stamp set so here is one more page using the same style as my other two pages. If you want to check these out you can visit THIS post and THIS one.
For my background I used alcohol inks in Rust ( SBC | SSS ) and Butterscotch ( SBC | SSS ) colors. Love the look! My favorite technique with alcohol inks is applying first blending solution on Yupo paper, because it helps the inks to blend so easy! Then add my ink colors and blow with a straw and I get a beautiful blended effect as a result. Looks like watercolor but much more vibrant.
I created a visual frame by stamping all around the edges, a techniques that seems like it makes the pages look more finished. I also added extra layers by using different design tapes … because what’s an art journal without layers right?!
I also wanted to pop the guy and the balloon on my page, since this is the focal point. So I stamped him separately, cut him out and used foam tape at the back. For the balloon I just cut out a circle from some scrap yupo papers that I had from previous projects, hence adding a pop of color on my page. That balloon really stands out.
Can you see all the texture, the layers, the stamping… how all the colors come together!? Just love the outcome!
This is one more page for my 6×6 disc bounded art journal. I absolutely love working on it since it gives me so much freedom than a book with a spine… but it’s technically still a book.
