Happy Creative Monday, Everyone!
Athanasia prepared a true Art Alchemy feast for us all today. And not just that!
This project is packed with creative ideas you can use: inspiring journaling tricks, musical inspiration and some triple gesso action too. :) There's a video tutorial as well so together with Athanasia, I hope you will grab your paints and papers immediately. Happy creating!
* * * *Hello dear friends!
My last art journal page is already placed in my Denim Journal and makes me really happy when I open it and the first thing I see are these beautiful colors.
I always love to incorporate a variety of colors on my pages. It just cheers me up and makes my day every time. :)
Art Alchemy acrylic paints come in such yummy shades and I can't resist to use almost all of them in my projects.
So, after I used the Heavy White Gesso to prime the page, I started by painting with my favorite colors using a paint roller.
When they were dry I used the 'Bubbles' stencil to create some round shapes here and there with the Rich Turquoise paint.
I used Clear Gesso to seal the text, just to be sure that it won't come off in the next steps.
After that, I painted with some White Gesso here and there to blend the colors and the text with the white background.
I also used the black pen to add some doodling here and there...
Then I dealed with the bubbles. I wanted some spark in there and the Sparks Acrylic Paints were perfect for this effect.
I used three of my favorite shades: Raven Black, Iris Potion and Mermaid Sparkle.
I also used the Mystic Turquoise and Amethyst Magic Antique Brilliance Waxes to achieve an even more shiny result. I realy love how they turned out.
I used a small tag to write down a quote I found on Pinterest and decorated it with these cute Mechanicals Wings, a button I had in my stash and thread in different colors.
Last thing to do was to make some splashes with the Black Gesso to add a bit of contrast.
Thank you for visiting and I hope my music inspired project will give you some creative ideas :)!
I wish you all a happy crafty day and weekend!
