Hi friends! Hope you are all well and safe. As I stay home these days I keep myself busy with crafting and I have the pleasure to be a guest designer over at the SimonSaysStamp blog today with one of my art journal layouts. For my page I used products from the latest collection designed by my super talented friend Antonis Tzanidakis for Stamperia. It’s a wonderful collection with lots of goodies including stamps, amazing papers, stencils, wood die cuts, chipboard pieces, molds, tissue papers and so much more!
You can enjoy the video below or at my YouTube channel
Make sure to watch the video above for a step by step tutorial on how I made my art journal layout using many mixed media techniques. Here are some close up photos below where you can see better the details and all the texture!
For my background I worked with just two colors of distress paint! Can you believe you can get all this texture just with two colors?! Just make sure to pick the correct ones, that match the pieces you are going to stick on top. Collage is one of my favorite techniques and with the wonderful designs in the SEA WORLD paper pad I just went to town!
I also added some texture with Glamour Paste and you can see some close ups here
The steampunk seahorse is absolutely amazing and it also comes as a stamp!
I also created a border using strips of paper that I cut out from the pad.
Here is a close-up on the page… can you see that lovely texture? It’s because I am working on one of the cotton pages on the blue journal by Dina Wakley.
