Art Journal Tutorial @ ARTplorations

{My DT work for ARTplorations}

Hello everyone! Whenever I start doing a journal page, the one thing that I deal with is texture. I must have texture to begin with and I just go with the flow afterwards. Seldom do I plan the style I want, it's never in my head because many times it doesn't work as planned. One thing for sure, texture is plan number one. 

 Supplies used: Bubbles ARTplorations StencilArtsy Border Maker STAMPlorations stamps, Versafine black ink pad, Micia brown ink pad, Alpha gesso &  modeling paste, watercolor paints, Sharpie black pen, black gel pen, white gel pen, serviette tissue, butterfly punch and alpha stamps

 I love making background and this piece of paper end up being heavy duty after adding serviette tissue for texture and coated with gesso.

 While waiting for the background to dry, I draw six petal flowers on a piece of old text book, cut it out, painted and let dry under the sun. Then I doodle the flowers and adhered on the page.
This is the background after I finished playing with colors.
There is a step by step of the process HERE at ARTplorations and a full list of stencils and stamps products which can be sourced at STAMPLlorations Store.

I'm taking my project into these challenges:
1. Mixed Media World : #5 Stencils

Thanks for visiting. Have a good week ahead and happy creating.

Hugs and smiles,
