Hello! 

Today some art journaling to share… this time in Claire’s Patwits circle journal which has safely arrived with the next recipient! 

She provided a piece of watercolour card and an envelope for us to decorate as we please but to include typography somewhere! 

Well I add book pages and some stamping which should meet the criteria! 

I started with a distress oxide background and chose yellows and browns for the main colours as I fancied doing a vintage style page.  I added lots of hot picks stamping in the background and then layered a few pieces of bookprint I had also added distress oxides to. 

The main feature I chose a Hot Picks hot air balloon and stamped it using archival onto bookprint and then added versamark and embossing powder all over to give it a waxy appearance and a glossy finish. 

I layered it up with some Angel hair to add texture. 

I added the whole panel to a piece of patterned paper that I added the embossing powder border to. I love the texture and colour this added. 

Finally I added Inktense pencil shading round the edge of the layers and the title stickers and some doodling. Oh and some added sparkle with some shimmer ink splats.

The envelope I went for a more organic finish. I added gesso and modelling paste with a palette knife and then stamped some Lin Brown stamps and used the fresco finish paints to add colour. I mainly painted with my fingers to blend it nicely.

I also added some of the Sparks paint and then the feature of the mini stamp which I stamped and then added the top layer by stamping onto a piece of cardstock I had painted the Sparks paint onto and then cut out the hand and pen image and layered it up.  I love how this came out. Simple but effective.

Happy crafting!

  1. Your mixed media pieces are so intriguing! The quote on the second one spoke to me. I took my nieces and nephew on a nature hike a few weeks ago, no electronics and no toys. They invented their own toys and games! I love when I see their imaginations at work!
