Hello again! Nat here!
I’m loving my little Art Journal journey at the moment … the opportunity to play with different techniques, mix a few elements together and see what happens really lights up my day!
I have had some total fails too but some real wins! I’m kinda thinking this is one of my wins!
I’m using the March Color Challenge Magicals set today and mixing them with heavy body acrylic paint!
Magical colors for March:
Plumeria Pink, Creme Brulee Cream, Baby Blue Eyes Aqua, Time Travel Teal, & Sandra Dee Sepia
Here are a few simple steps to create this Art Journal Page.
|Mix heavy bodied white acrylic paint with Magicals – make sure that you really give it a good mix so that all of the powder has mixed into the paint.|
|Gesso prep your journal pages then add lines of low tack masking tape to your page|
|Use a catalyst tool to swipe the paint onto the page|
|Swipe on some white then allow to dry|
|Gently remove the tape|
|Add some cardstock shapes|
|Use the coordinating sprays to color the shapes|
|Add some texture paste through a stencil|
|Add some more color and allow to dry|
|Use a stencil with some white spray paint to add another layer|
|Add some alphas|
|Paint them with a wet brush and Magicals to get an intense color|
|Finally give the page a light spray with Creme Brulee Cream for shimmer|
Here are a few close ups of my page!
Have you dabbled in Art Journaling? Would love to see your take on this months challenge in your journal!
Thanks for stopping by

Love the contrast between the stripes & the flowers! The flowers seem so glowy ’cause they are white!!
