Hello Gang! It is Natasha here today and I am excited to be up on the blog! For today’s project ‘Don’t forget to fly’ I worked in my art journal to create a textured background! I love to work in my journal with Lindy’s colors, it is truly relaxing! So let’s get started!
I started my journal with South Shore Sand Flat Fabio Spray. I spritzed the art journal page with the Flat Fabio Spray and then dried the color with my heat tool. I then spritzed the page with water droplets and pulled up some color with a paper towel. I continued to repeat this process with 2 more Lindy’s Sprays: Golden Doubloons and Gossamer Gold (Moon Shadow Mist). I repeated the process as shared above several times until I had the texture on my page I was looking for.
Next I added some texture to the journal page using a stencil. I first applied ink through the stencil using my blending tool and distress oxide ink. I allowed the color to dry, then repeated the process using the same stencil with embossing powder. I applied embossing ink through the stencil with a blending tool and then Gimme Five Gold embossing powder to the page. I heat set the powder and repeated the process in various sections of my journal page. I love the added texture with the ink and powder.
Next I chose the pieces for my journal page. I used various pattern papers, cheese cloth, a black and white photo, as well as leaves and ephemera. I applied ink to various pieces using a blending tool. I added some rub ons to the background of my journal for added texture. I then added a few splatters to the journal page using Flat Fabio Spray in Sidewalk Chalk.
I allowed the splatters to dry, then adhered all the elements to the journal page using liquid glue and glue dots. I chose a sentiment from my stash to complete my journal page.
I had a lot of fun creating today’s page! Thank you so much for stopping by!
