Exploring Art Journaling 4; Day 1 and 2

4 - Day 1 - Medium & Acrylic Paint

Day 1 – Acrylic paint and Gel medium


Day 2 GelatosDay 2; Gelatos

Having fun with Exploring Art journaling 4 with Christine Urias at Scraptime for her fourth installment of art journaling courses.  The classes are self paced and can be watched over and over again.  The first layout uses acrylic paint mixed with acrylic medium.  The flowers are a mask from my Heidi Swapp and stencils from Dina Wakley and crafters workshop.

The second page uses gelatos as a base in yellow, blue, green and dark green to create the background.  The stamps are from Dyan Reavly’s clear set called ‘Clearly Borders’. I used J and W pearlescent acrylic paints  mixed with modeling cream through the ‘wavy’ stencil from Simon Says Stamp and the gelatos mixed with water on the Dina Wakely stencil. I colored in the leaves with Silks and the borders with Molotow Acrylic markers.  I pulled out a bunch of stash letter from my active scrapooking days and to finish off,  I splatted black paint, covered in gel medium and used a Faber Castell pit marker in brown to create shadows.  This is a 30 day project, so there will be more to come.  Thanks for sharing in my journey.
