Art Journal Spread by Preeti D.

Hi friends :)
Hope you are doing well.
Preeti Datta (Dutt Preety) here from the VLVS! Design Team. 
For today's post, I've created a Whimsical Art Journal Spread.  
I've used some gorgeous VLVS! Rubber Stamps here.

First, I applied heavy white gesso to the pages, to prepare them for mixed media work. Then applied distress paints in muted tones to the background, to add texture and for some subtle colour.

Stamped all the images and the sentiment using VLVS! rubber stamps onto Tim Holtz collage paper using archival ink. Then adhered these to the pages using gel medium.

Added colour around the adhered images using distress inks and distress paints. 

Created ink splatter to add interest to the background and tie everything together. Did background stamping using a VLVS! text stamp to add more texture to the background. 

For the finishing touches, doodled on a border and scribbled on some writing using a thin black permanent pen.
