Mixed Media on Monday

Hello all,

It’s time for some more mixed media inspiration and as promised I am using the papers
I made in the MMM post two weeks ago. If you want to check out that post

DYI art journal paper

I get so much enjoyment out of creating art journal pages, it’s so relaxing and I just put things on the page. No stressing over choices and lots of colour!
If you have any questions about any part of the process or need some clarification on the techniques I used, please leave me a comment. I would love to hear from you.

Here we go.
1. I cut up the DIY paper into strips of varying widths and then adhered them to my blank art journal page

2. Using similar colours of paint and a brayer, I rolled on some colour overtop of the entire page and then started adding some layers with stencils, paint and a sponge.

3. After adding several different stencils, I tore some pages from a magazine and added strips to the page. The next layer I added was some stamping with black Archival inks, then some doodling with a permanent black pen.

4. The finishing touches were added by inking the edge of the entire page with black ink, adding a quote and then adhering the red arrow. When glueing things down, I like to use a matte medium.
