My Life is Mixed Media

Continuing with the feel of impressionistic artists, the February Kit is a fun way to explore color, texture, and expressing what you feel inside.  Gelatos, Pan Pastels, a button (enhanced), paint, and Amazing Mold Putty was used for this journal page.

I cut a white journal page from another white board book.  The main journal is painted with a sponge and a few blue hues tapped on to create the background.

The page itself started out with paint, sponged in various colors, overlapping.  The hues were intensified with Pan Pastels.  I love that the kit had the pink and green color!  The white Gelato was drawn through various areas in a free form way.

I made inkjet stickers of the woman and quote printed on vellum.  Adhere those with an adhesive that dries clear.

The button is enhanced with Copic Markers.  Copic Markers work well on non-porous surfaces.  The areas were a plain light tan, and I wanted to tie the colors in with the page.

The wing is molded with Amazing Mold Putty and the regular resin.  Once molded, I painted with a pearl paint.

The word Life is enhanced with the black Gelato.

I glued the page to the cover.  I can't wait to start doing more art journaling inside!!!

If you look at this art, I have used paint, pastels, Gelatos, elements, and quotes.  Mixed media is so fun to experiment with and play with how all these mediums work together.
