Here is the first completed set of pages for my brand new art journal!
Totally channeling Anna Debrowska for this...
...I had to use the new techniques I learned from her this past weekend along with a few of my favorite old ones including some certain supplies used.
The pages started out as cut pieces of paper from the longitude and latitude portion of a giant hard bound atlas. I used TONS of bits n bobs, some cast and some original pieces to form my wave of Magic. There are also some Prima flowers, Ideology gears and game spinner, Making Memories frame, and a clothespin spring. I used black soot distress stain to distress the edges as well as paint through the Gauche Alchemy star punchinella mask.
I misted over the goodies with Charcoal Chalkboard glimmer mist by Tattered Angels, and dry brushes gesso over the top. The Umbrella man is Tim Holtz's sizzix die cut out of black cardstock and highlighted with gesso.
I used Amazing Mold Putty to cast some of my favorite resin pieces.. a giant button, lots of smaller buttons, a cameo.. etc. They can easily be seen here:
Of course I used VLVS! Stamps... "Art is the last form of magic that exists"
and "feed your soul" both stamped in ranger archival jet black
