Misty shows us how to take her mixed media, grunge techniques and applies them to her art journal and we are so inspired to make one of our own. The video walks you through the techniques.
DREAM ART JOURNAL
Hi its Misty and I don’t know about you, but the one thing I can not live without in my crafty life is Tattered Angels paints! A page just isn’t the same without them. I love adding layer after layer and seeing where it takes me.
This page uses just about everything from glimmer mist, to high impact paint and glimmer glaze. All of the paints work together to add glimmer, glam, glitter, metallic and other cool finishes.
To me, my Tattered Angels paints are what makes my mixed media pages, allowing me to convert papers to the colors, textures and feel that I am looking for. The paint is great on paper, but also will transform flowers, metals, embellishments, fluted papers, plastic, pearls, acrylic, lace, silk, canvas, burlap, stickers, ok you get it, just about anything.
Here, I used my favorite color combos of purples, browns, and golds. With so many colors to choose from you can create you own color pallet for your art journal.
Its a grungy page with lots of fun texture and beautiful intense color!
Here is a start to finish video showing how I created this journal page:
We hope you are inspired to create you own art journal using Misty’s techniques and trying some of your own.
