and welcome to the blog where today I am sharing an art journal page.
I have made a tutorial and invite you to get a drink, sit down and have a look...
As always I'll show you the finished product first:
And here's how:
I started off with a piece of white drawing paper.
I tool out some paints and a brayer to give it some colour. I made sure to leave some white areas.
I took out my mini round gelli plate to add some more detail. I used purple and white paint in this case.
Make sure you don't use too much paint. Better too little than too much.
I used this piece of cardboard to make a pattern on the plate before printing.
This is how that looks.
I did this three times. I thought that looked good !
Next I got my favourite background stamps out and started stamping with inks in similar colours to the paint I used. I did add a grey for more variation.
That is the background done ! Love it !!!
Next I stamped my main image and the sentiment I was going to use on a piece of white card stock.
I also stamped the top half of him on the page. This way I can cut off the 'hair' from the separate stamped image and when I adhere it over the top the 'hair' is there again.
I got out some UmWow studio Star Confetti and heat-embossed them with a light purple embossing powder.
They go all shiny, lovely...
Next it was time to colour my man. I used Copic Markers... my favourite way of colouring as it is quick and easy..
And here he is in all his glory !
Here is the finished product again. Everything adhered. As a finishing touch I added some black pen around the sentiment.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.
I have used the following stamps:
Thank you so much for stopping by today !
