Welcome to another art journal layout using fun mixed media techniques. Today I used my gel plate to do some printing on the background. I worked on a page from my 8×8 custom made disc bound journal.
For my background today I used various brands of acrylic paints on my 9 x 11 – Printing Plate ( SBC | SSS | JGG ). I also used some combs and other tools to do some marking before pulling a print. But remember you can do this with the back of your brush! I was working on a watercolor paper so I got instant texture without too much effort. Depending on the paper you use you get different effects.
My focal points are lovely stamps from the Stampendous – Magical Horses ( SBC | SSS | JGG ) stamp set. I stamped the horses on paper I had from gel plate printing and used the matching dies to cut them out. I also use some of my Decomarkers by Pebeo to do some doodling on the horses. These markers come with different nib sizes and they have opaque acrylic paint inside. Awesome effect!
