Memories of Incredible Moments

[Challenge win: Top 5 at More Mixed Media challenge]

Here’s my latest art journal spread –

I started the spread by pasting torn pre-stamped paper on the background. I added more texture over this by using modeling paste over a stencil. I applied acrylic paints over parts of the stenciled areas, and spritzed water over them to spread the color.

I added more interest to the background by stamping on it using dye inks. I also added dots, dashes, and circles using Copic markers.

I made the focal images on a different piece of paper, using stamps and dye inks. I fussy cut the figures, pasted them over the background, and drew scribbly outlines around them using Copic markers. I then colored them with watercolor pencils and water brush pens.

I stamped the quote using dye inks, then cut out rectangles around the words, and pasted them on the background. I used watercolor pencils and water brush pens to darken the edges, then used a Copic marker for scribbly lines bordering parts of the edge. That completes the spread, ta da!

    1. Thanks sis! Not sure when I’ll use the stencil for buffalo check as intended, but it seemed perfect for this spread. ๐Ÿ™‚
