Hello guys! I'm back with another page for my art journal. This time I've used stencils and stamps to create a very textured background.
I have used these materials:
First thing I did was to prime the page with a layer of gesso to make the paper resist the techniques I later used. I chose yellow and green tones and afterwards I applied brown to the edges to make a deepening effect. You can rub the excess pain off with a paper towel.
I then placed several background stamps on the paper using water resistant ink in orange tones.
For the drawing I used a stamp on a kraft cardboard and then I coloured it with felt tip pens. Then I cut out the drawing and I stuck it on the paper. On the right hand side I stamped the phrase with an alphabet stamp and with black water resistant ink.
Next I used the crackle effect stencil and stencil paste to make a 3d texture on the paper using a spatula on the edges of the page.
Finally I made a mixture of beads and glue and I spread it over the paper. I'm trying to simulate floating bubbles and I love the way it looks.
This is the finished artjournal page! These techniques can also be used to decorate frames, cards and other objetcts.
See you soon!
