Hello and Welcome! Martina (aka Frau Pony) here with you today creating a page in my Art Journal using some of our amazing Lindy’s products.
I have been inspired by the gorgeous January Color Challenge color scheme, but changed the red into yellow (and totally love this combination, too!)
To start, I have sprayed some Starburst Sprays in Whale Watch Blue and Gag me with a spoon Grea onto my piece of Aquarelle Paper.
Spray water on top of the color and mixed the colors by simply tilting the paper. Dab the excess liquid off the corner of the paper – this avoids these puddles of muddy color that usually take ages to dry.
On the first layer in the background are some white dots that I stenciled with gesso using a dry and sturdy brush.
For the second layer, I have applied Texture Paste through a stencil and directly sprinkled some Magical in Frolic in the Forest onto it. Leaving the stencil in the original position, I have spread the Magical over the texture paste.
I have used the leftovers on the pallet knife and the stencil to apply some more texture and interest on the upper half of the paper.
To adjust the lower part of the paper to the upper one, I used my pallet knife and flattened and smeared some of the Texture Paste that I have been applying through the stencil.
While the Texture Paste dries, I painted a Wood Veneer Ornament with white Gesso and heat embossed it two times with Hyacinth Blue Jade.
Some splatters in Martina’s Marigold Magical are a nice way to blend some of the yellow color in that I will be using in my embellishing of the page.
I have glued my page into my Art Journal and finished it by adding some flowers and text stripes that I have fussy cut. Plus I used some old stickers as some kind of a title for the page.
I totally love this color combination and think that all these glitters and shimmers coordinate pretty well.
I have been using Lindy’s:
- Starburst Sprays: Whale Watch Blue, Gag me with a Spoon Grey
- Magical: Martina’s Marigold, Frolic in the Forest Green
- EmbossingPowder: Hyacinth Blue Jade
- Gesso, Texture Paste, BeemyBear Wood Veneer, Studio Calico Stickers, A.B Studio Papers and Stencils.
I hope you enjoyed this Art Journal Page as much as I do.
Have a wonderful Day!
