Wings On Wednesday – Art Is A Way Of Life collage

Julia Chupik is with us on Wings On Wednesday sharing her art journal page created using the collage technique.
We’re sure you’ll like the ideas she employed in her process.

I was so excited to get this Creative Journal from 7gypsies that I wanted to create a page just for the sake of creating. This layout was inspired by the tile pattern paper from the 7gypsies Architextures paper pad and the Vintage Beeswax Baked Texture Powders from Seth Apter.

Materials used:
7gypsies Architextures 8″x 8″ paper pad
7gypsies Architextures Junque Pack – Porch
7gypsies Architextures Stash Paque – Create
7gypsies Architextures Parchment Rub-Ons – Inspire
7gypsies Composition Book – 5.5″ x 6″ Creative Journal
Tattered Angels Mixed Media Origins – Wings
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist – Gold and Woven Burlap
Emerald Creek/Seth Apter Baked Texture – Vintage Beeswax
Tim Holtz – Paper Dolls
Heat Gun, 3D Foam, Scissors

I started by cutting out a couple of sections from the tile pattern paper from the 7 Gypsies Architextures 8″x 8″ paper pad.

I covered these sections with Emboss-It Ink and Vintage Beeswax baked Texture Powders.

I repeated these steps 3 times to get a nice thick layer of Vintage Beewax Baked Texture over the pattern paper.

Next I took this sheet of mixed media paper from the Tattered Angels Origins Mixed Media pack. I sprayed the wings with gold Glimmer Mist.

After I dried this completely I applied some Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide with a water brush. This gave the wings a bit more dimension.

I opened my Creative Journal and applied a few images from the Inspire pack of 7 Gypsies Architextures Parchment Rub-Ons. These are amazing, transfer beautifully and this pack gives you oodles of images to choose from. Next I sprayed and splattered some Woven Burlap Glimmer Mist on to the pages.

It was time take all my pieces and start assembling my journal layout. I used a door from the 7 Gypsies Architextures Porch Junque Pack and a couple of stickers from the 7 Gypsies Create Stash Pack. A couple paper dolls from Tim Holtz finished my page off.

Just before adhering my tile pieces I ‘cracked’ the vintage beeswax baked texture – I love the effect the cracks gives this.

The 3 layers of baked texture powder give the paper a fabulous vintage feel.
