Mushroom Art-Journal Page with Elena

Hello dear friends!

Today I have created a mushrooms journal page using a fabulous Lindy’s sprays  and  Lindy’s Magical Shakers.

On this page I tried a new technique with texture paste and Magical paint. Before today, I always added Magicals to the paste, mixed well and applied through the stencil. TODAY, I first applied a texture paste, then, without removing the stencil, sprinkled with Magicals powder and smeared a little with palette knife. This is how I got an uneven color texture paste, which is sometimes absolutely necessary :))))

To create the background, I used embossing powder, texture paste, stamping with black ink and a few shades of sprays. Thanks to this mixture of products, the background turned out to be more profound and three-dimensional.

Basic Process

  1. Paint page with white gesso
  2. Stamp and emboss images onto background with King Midas embossing powder
  3. Apply texture paste and sprinkle with Magicals.
  4. Add paint around page to create a frame
  5. Cover mushroom images with gesso and color with Lindy’s
  6. Add more mushrooms, gesso and color until you are happy with composition.
  7. Paint background with Lindy’s using a paint brush.

When I revived the work, I added a vintage picture of a little girl. And now the page reminds me of an illustration of Alice in Wonderland.
