Art Journal Page 2: Discoveries: How to...

I've shared my growing stash of supplies for art journaling and mixed media.  I've told you that I've been in the studio creating every day.  Well, today, I'll share one of those art journal pages.

I am finding art journaling to be care free and fun.  Being a little messy and using some of those paints, stamps and mists that I've had for way too long feels good, as well.  

Steps to completion:
  • Applied Gesso to page. 
  • Misted background with Glimmer Mists.
  • Painted using Art Anthology Gel Paints.
  • Misted template in a dark silver in 3 spots on page.
  • Stamped dragonfly image.
  • Stamped Tim Holtz quote.
  • Sponged to create textures spots in pink and yellow. 
  • Dripped mists to create splatters.
  • Dipped dabber into paints to create the dots. 
  • Out lined quotes and paint with a marker.
