Technique Junkies Journal Page

Hey Junkies!  Today I’m sharing a page I made in my art journal using a few gorgeous Technique Junkies Stamps called, Let’s Face It 1 – #P006Classy Swirls #S505, and Mae West Sentiments #PS004.

I started by stamping the Let’s Face It on book paper with archival ink and colored her in with Silks. To make the background I used a brayer to add Dina Wakely acrylic paint and stamped the Classy Swirls also with archival ink, but this time in Cobalt Blue. I didn’t use the entire stamp, but portions of it while just holding it in my hand. I then added some molding paste through stencils and applied the face on with gel medium.  I splattered both black and gold ink as well as edged the page with gold Krylon.  To highlight the molding paste I took Viva’s Inka Gold Metallic Rub and applied it direct to paper with my fingers. I love that gold shimmer.  To ground my picture I added some Faber Castell Pitt Pen around the image and smoothed it out with my fingers.  Because there was gel medium on the page if you work quickly, it moves well and allows that shadow to be developed without harsh lines.

Signing off for now,
